16.02.2017 - The man, who was living in an illegal situation in Spain, had been under investigation since 2012, and more recently he had become more radicalised within a short space of time.  He had changed his physical appearance, his way of dressing, and had imposed his radical beliefs on family members.  The investigators therefore classified him as a threat to national security.  Following his arrest, his apartment was searched.  The case remains open.
