Whilst I am unable to comment further upon these ongoing proceedings, I would like to thank members of the Spanish speaking community for their assistance with the investigation. Their liaison with my Spanish speaking officers was an important factor in Rosa De La Rosa’s capture and we are grateful for the trust and confidence demonstrated by the many people who came forward with information’.
