Brit ar­rested in Spain over gang mur­der in Thai­land

Sunday Mirror - - SAIRAKHAN - BY Ger­arD couZeNs

SPAN­ISH po­lice have ar­rested a con­victed Bri­tish fraud­ster wanted in Thai­land over the mur­der of an­other ex­pat.

Toby James Nel­hams, 45, was held on an in­ter­na­tional ar­rest war­rant as he landed at Malaga Air­port.

He is sus­pected of or­der­ing the mur­der of a Brit de­scribed as the king­pin of a “Wolf of Wall Street”-style boiler room gang op­er­a­tion.

Nel­hams had pre­vi­ously been linked to the killing of fraud­ster Tony Ken­way, although he has never been pros­e­cuted.

Dad-of-four Ken­way, 39, was blasted in the head in a gang­land-style hit as he sat in his Porsche in Pat­taya, south Thai­land, in Jan­uary last year.

Nel­hams – one of three men sought over the shoot­ing – was ar­rested last year but never put on trial.

A po­lice spokesman con­firmed: “The fugi­tive was caught when he tried to en­ter Spain through Malaga Air­port.”

Nel­hams, from North Lon­don, is thought to have al­ready ap­peared be­fore an ex­tra­di­tion judge, although the re­sult is not yet clear.
