Former Albanian intelligence head arrested in London faces extradiction
|Kumbaro’s false ID|
A British court yesterday cleared the way for his extradition of the former Albanian intelligence chief, who is wanted for torture and kidnapping. The etradition must be approved by Foreign Secretary David Miliband.
Ilir Kumbaro, 55, who was wanted worldwide for torture and kidnapping, was arrested at his flat in Fulham, in west London, the BBC reported. He had lived in Britain under an assumed identity for 13 years while receiving government benefits. When he entered the UK in August 1996 under the name of Shaqa Shatri, Kumbaro had convinced the countrys immigration authorities that he was a refugee from Kosovo fleeing Serbian persecution. Under his false identity, Kumbaro was granted indefinite leave to remain and issued with a British passport.
According to BBC, it was an apparent slip-up that had brought Kumbaro to the arrest. In order to claim incapacity benefits for his depression, he had to register with the Health Authority. Instead of registering as Shaqa Shatri, Kumbaro inexplicably used his real name.
The images of Kumbaro from Albanian intelligence files, including one of a young Kumbaro in communist uniform, had an uncanny resemblance to the man living in Fulham, BBC marks.
Kosovar Shadow of Albanian Murder Suspect
Pristina | 02 April 2009 |
Shaqir Shatri, whose personal details were used for several years by the Albanian secret agent Ilir Kumbaro, claims that his ID was stolen in Tirana in 1993.Shatri became very disturbed a week ago, when he saw his identity broadcast on TV by the British police. A native of the village of Kushinin near Prizren, he says that he has no connection with Albanias Secret Service, and that he will press charges against Kumbaro.
Ilir Kumbaro is accused of the 1995 murder of Albanian businessman Remzi Hoxha. Although Tirana had issued a summons against him, by hiding under Shatri’s identity, and because he declared himself in Britain as a Kosovar refugee, Kumbaro had escaped the authorities searching for him.
Shatri reported that his suitcase, along with his documents and money, were stolen in Tirana in 1993. I reported the theft of my ID and money to the Tirana police , said Shatri. After the end of the Kosovo conflict in 1999, his ID was confiscated by the border police.
British police discovered that, due to the lack of a UNMIK counselling service, the registration office in Prizren had issued further documents to Ilir Kumbaro in the name of Shaqir Shatri .
