Detective chief superintendent Athol Aitken, head of investigations for the SCDEA, said: "This individual fled the country to avoid the attention of Scottish law enforcement and the Scottish justice system.
"His apprehension should be a clear message to others who attempt to evade law enforcement that there is no hiding place for those involved in serious organised crime.
"We will continue to work closely with our European colleagues to ensure that criminals face due criminal process, irrespective of the passage of time."
