MADRID (AFP) - Spanish police said Saturday they had arrested a 57-year-old Spanish woman they claim is the leader of the Spanish cell of Colombian Marxist rebel group FARC.
Maria Remedios Garcia Albert was arrested at her home in the town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, northeast of Madrid, they said.
The interior ministry said Garcia Albert had provided logistical support for FARC and had direct contacts with Raul Reyes, the FARC number two who was killed by Colombian troops inside Ecuador earlier this year.
Analysis of Reyes' computer passed on to Spanish investigators by Colombian authorities had led them to identify Garcia Albert.
Garcia Albert travelled to secret camps in Colombia last year for "meetings with top leaders of the terrorist group," according to the interior ministry.
She was discovered in possession of "several amounts of money" which she was preparing to send to representatives of FARC in Europe, the ministry said in a statement.
In Bogota, the director of the national police force General Oscar Naranjo welcomed the arrest as an important breakthrough in the investigation of the FARC's links with Europe.
"This arrest is the start of a series of arrests which will take place in Europe, especially of people linked to the FARC," he told Radio RCN in Bogota, describing Garcia Albert as a member of the FARC's "international commission".
He said Reyes' computer files contained "a significant number of names of people living abroad, some of them Europeans and others Colombian."
Using her position within a Spanish NGO, the Organisation of Solidarity for Asia, Africa and Latin Americas, Garcia Albert had "offered cover and logistical support in Spain to various leaders of the terrorist organisation ...
She was also tasked with coordinating contacts with FARC representatives in Switzerland and Sweden, it said.

Did she have a chance to meet with hussein obama concerning the marxist takeover of America? I’m sure he is 100% behind her lofty goals.
She’s guilty, nobody will FARC her!!!
So guilty, a drumhead court martial with summary execution.
