Serb Wanted on International Warrant Arrested in Thessaloniki

September 8, 2021

THESSALONIKI — A Serb national sought with an outstanding international arrest warrant on charges of drug trafficking has been arrested in the area of Νeapoli, in Thessaloniki, through the cooperation of Greek and Serbian police in the framework of the European Network of Fugitive Active Search Teams (ENFAST).

He is a 39-year-old man who has been described as dangerous by the authorities in Serbia, where he stands accused of murder and attempted murder, according to an announcement by the Hellenic Police. An Interpol red notice for his arrest to stand trial for drug trafficking, an act allegedly carried out in 2014 in Serbia, is pending against him.

The wanted fugitive has purportedly been living in Greece with a 29-year-old Serb woman with whom he was in a relationship. According to the police, the 39-year-old managed to obtain two Greek tax registration numbers and open accounts in Greek banks using fake IDs, while he rented an apartment, had a Greek phone number and drove a car with Greek number plates. He is also said to have provided a fake identity card for his partner, who was also arrested.
