The National Police have released a list of ten individuals that they are urgently seeking and are so asking for the public's help in locating. All ten, five of them Spanish and five from elsewhere (who are being sought by their countries' police forces), are believed to be in Spain.

The five from other countries are:

Since January last year, the police's fugitive location group has succeeded in arresting 495 people who were on the run. This highlights the importance placed on the public's help. Of the 495, forty were wanted for drug trafficking, 41 for fraud, 126 for robbery, fourteen for murder or serious wounding, 53 for sexual assault and 221 for other crimes, including money laundering.

Isn´t the daily publication of photos of the members of the local government enough for you ?.

Could the " Bulletin " , " Ultima Hora " and " El Pias " permanently publish the Photographs of these most wanted criminals (FUGITOVOS )?. With a brief caption of their crimes, under each photo ?. No doubt, it is cost, that will prevent the continued publication . Unless these despicable excuses for human beings are permanently promulgated in the Public Eye, and the millions of Tourists eyes, then there will be a very limited response.
