A martial arts expert who masterminded the £53 million Securitas robbery was jailed for 10 years in Morocco today.
Cage fighter Lee Murray, 30, was told he will spend the next decade in prison at a hearing in Rabat, Kent Police said.
The sentence was for his role co-ordinating the audacious raid at the cash depot in Tonbridge, Kent, on February 21, 2006.
Last June the Moroccan authorities refused to extradite Murray, originally from Sidcup, after establishing his Moroccan nationality.
Since then detectives have worked closely with their overseas colleagues to ensure Murray does not escape justice.
He has been held in prison since his arrest at a shopping centre several months after the raid and has already served time for drug-related offences.
Detective Superintendent Mick Judge said: "I'm pleased Murray will now begin serving a significant prison sentence for his part in the Tonbridge robbery.
"Officers investigating the £53 million robbery have put six men before the courts in the UK and they have been sentenced to a total of 156 years imprisonment.
"We must not forget the traumatic experience the Dixons and the Securitas employees went through that night in 2006 - held at gunpoint and fearing for their lives.
"I'm pleased that Murray, who played a key role in the conspiracy to kidnap the Dixons and rob the depot, has now been held accountable."Reuse content
