Rada said that they had staked out a hideout in the Ain Zara outskirts of Tripoli and had stormed the location at 1.30 am today.
They had found Baldacchino and arrested two suspects. The other members of the gang were being pursued.
Speaking on a video posted by Rada on their Facebook page, Baldacchino said that he had been blindfolded and his hands tied for the duration of his ordeal.
An emotional Baldacchino, holding back the tears said: ‘’It was a very bad week. I was thinking of a lot of things, including not seeing my kids’’. [/restrict]
