Albanian Criminals Who Eluded Greek Cops Go Back Home

May 6, 2018

With a spike in crime attributed in part to violent criminals let out of jail early – including Albanian convicts – more than 180 Albanian criminals wanted in Greece and who hadn’t been found reportedly have fled back to their home country.

Greek authorities have since 2000 issued 184 arrest warrants for Albanian nationals charged with criminal acts. None of them has been caught, according to Kathimerini, whid did a review of data.
Fourteen international arrest warrants have been issued this year for Albanians who are reported to have fled to the neighboring country. In 2017 authorities issued 21 warrants, while 26 were issued the year before.

Senior Greek Police (ELAS) officers told the newspaper that Albanians aren’t extradited because judicial and law enforcement officials there don’t want them back.

“In cases when we ask for the extradition of suspects they ask us to send the case files translated (into Albanian) so that they are not extradited to Greece and face trial in Albania,” a police source said.
