Thanks to Spain's legal system

I have no doubt that the gardai were very happy to see some of our senior crime lords arrested in Spain and not here last week.

If arrested here for the same offence they would have been out on bail within several hours or at most several days.

At least in Spain they can be detained for up to four years before trial.
