Very simple. Someone names him in a lawsuit. A spanish judge issues
subpoena. He ignores it and does not appear in court. The same judge would
order an equivalent of a bench warrant to be issued. At some point your
friend will end up going through a passport control at an international
airport and as opposite to going to vacation in Amsterdam, he will end up in
a lovely jail pending extradition to Spain.

Welcome to the lovely world that you want to ignore.
