“The 54-year-old man was detained at an address in Chessington, Surrey at around 7.30am and is currently in police custody where he will be interviewed.

“Saad and Ikbal Al-Hilli from Claygate, Surrey and her mother Suhaila al-Allaf, who lived in Sweden, were found shot dead along with French cyclist Sylvain Mollier on a remote forest road in Chevaline on September 5, 2012.

“As part of the joint investigation team (JIT), which was established on September 21 last year, officers from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team have been working closely with the French authorities to progress a number of lines of enquiry.

“This pre-planned arrest is a result of these on-going enquiries and any updates will be issued in due course.”

Saad Al-Hilli worked at Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, at the Surrey Research Park, near the Royal Surrey County Hospital.
