1 June, 2011

Santo Domingo.- A fugitive wanted by a Swedish court on charges of kidnapping a minor and crimes against the family was arrested yesterday by Police agents assigned to INTERPOL, who rescued a girl and handed her over to the National Childhood and Adolescence Council (CONANI).

The Swedish national Helena Maria Irene Agnvall is accused of taking her 5 year old daughter from her father’s Stockholm residence in 2007, and of illegally bringing the minor to Dominican Republic, where she kept the child in Sosua, Puerto Plata Province (north).

Agnvall was arrested via a warrant issued by a court in Sodertorn, Sweden, where she faces charges of violating that nation’s Penal Code.

The Police said she’ll be repatriated to her country in the next few hours.
