It’s over for Rawa Majid, also known as the ”Kurdish Fox” when Iranian police arrested Sweden’s most violent gang leader during a route check between the Turkish and Iranian borders.
End of the Line for the Kurdish Fox
According to reports, Rawa Majid was captured near the Turkey and Iran border. Police said Sweden’s most savage gang leader has operated his warfare from Turkey. The mob boss instigated the explosion connected to gangland violence in Uppsala.
Tagged as the “Kurdish Fox,” Majid is accused of organising bloody attacks in turf wars, resulting in dozens of deaths. The bloodshed started in the beginning of 2023, including a dozen deaths in September.
The Swedish police said that his relocation to Turkey enabled him to direct his Foxtrot network in a fight against a breakaway gang. Teenage boys, as young as 13, usually accomplish the attacks.
According to sources, Iraqi-Kurdish parents raised Majid in Sweden and may have been arrested for carrying illegal papers. He presented a fake ID during a routine check between the borders of Turkey and Iran.
In 2023, his gang was associated with dozens of deaths. It includes civilians who were caught on fire in a sequence of organised savage turf wars.
Swedish News Outlets Denied Capture of the Swedish Kingpin
Some reports announced the capture of Swedish kingpin Kurdish Fox, however, some news outlets tell otherwise.
On Monday, Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson said he had unverified “intelligence” that Majid is detained. He also said that the tremendous criminal charges against the gang leader could have a huge impact.
Iran’s Possible Handing of Kurdish Fox to Swedish Authorities
According to the head of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs, Rouzbeh Parsi, there will be several ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ on how Iran will react to it.
“There are two chief possibilities. The first one is that they suspect he is trying to enter the country in order to carry out some sort of criminal activity. In that case, they might hold on to him until they’ve figured that out,” explained Parsi.
“The second alternative is that they just see him as someone who’s trying to escape from something and is attempting to enter the country illegally. In that case, the logical thing to do, as in many other countries, would be to send him back to wherever he came from, which in this case is probably Turkey,” added Parsi.
The head likewise believes the most possible outcome is that Majid will be sent back to Turkey since he carries Turkish citizenship. He doubts that Iran isn’t completely aware of who Majid is. Additionally, Iran’s reaction will depend on how much Sweden wants Kurdish Fox to be handed over.
