MADRID-A Spaniard of Syrian descent who was remanded in custody on suspicion of involvement in last year's Madrid train bombings, may have helped a fellow suspect flee the scene, Spanish judicial sources said.
 
The sources said Mohammed Almallah Dabas, who was arrested Friday and remanded on Monday, may have helped Amer Aziz, flee justice.

Aziz was charged by Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon with membership of the Al-Qaeda extremist network and involvement in the 11 September attacks in the United States.
 
Spanish media organizations have consistently described Aziz as the head of Al-Qaeda in Europe.

According to the warrant for Almallah's arrest, drawn up under Juan del Olmo, the judge investigating the Madrid blasts which killed 191 people, Dabas could have helped Aziz leave the country.

Del Olmo maintains Dabas was in "direct" contact with three of the seven Islamic radicals who blew themselves up last April in a Madrid suburb during a police raid.

The judge believes he also organised meetings in Madrid aimed at indoctrinating Muslim residents along with his brother, Moutaz Almallah Dabas, who was arrested on Saturday in Britain.
 
Mohamed Almallah Dabas was first arrested in March last year but was later released. New evidence led to his re-arrest.

His brother is fighting extradition from Britain to Spain.
