An Albanian man that came to Britain in 1998 according to a media report, one year after he murders two brothers in Albania, is facing extradition from the United Kingdom.
He was allowed to remain in the UK under refugee status; because there was a belief that he had a genuine fear for his life in his native country. But he was convicted in his absence for the crimes he commits in Albania.
It is, of course, there must be some exchange of information between the British Judicial and the Albanian that would convince a judge in the UK to issue extradition decision.
I cannot imagine what genuine refugees that are fleeing their homeland because of violence, genocide, and civil war, have to undergo. But individuals like this who blatantly abuse the system so that they can escape justice in their country makes it tough for others who need our help.
This alleged double murderer is complaining that he will not get a fair trial in Albania because there is no justice only corruption, well he should have thought of that before thinking he could escape punishment for his criminal activities.
He his currently in custody until the UK Home Secretary makes the decision on his extradition.
