Hammid Hakker, 47, a fugitive on France's most-wanted list, was arrested together with two Spaniards who police suspect were helping him to hide in the country. According to a statement by the National Police, the man was disguised as a devil,in order to blend in with the other party-goers.
According to a report by The Local, Hakker is wanted for drug trafficking, murder and money-laundering and was sentenced by a French court back in 2005 to 15 years in jail for the murder of a minor drug trafficker. However after the jail in northern France granted him a temporary leave of absence in November 2013 Hakker has been on the run.
Prison Break: Hakker has escaped from jail before
He had previously escaped from a jail in Paris back in 1998, taking the place of another man in the visiting area of the prison and was re-arrested in 2003.
