An Albanian accused of drug trafficking, who allegedly earned millions of euros from the drug trade in Belgium, has been added to the list of the most wanted persons in Europe. It is about Fejzulla Haredini, 58 years old, for whom the police of all EU countries have been searching. As of this weekend, his description is on Europol 's list, and is among the most wanted names in Europe.
Fejzulla Haredini is accused of having earned millions of euros from drug trafficking in Belgium, attracting the attention of investigators since the summer of 2013. Haredini was sentenced to 13 years in prison by the Court of First Instance of Brussels. Then 5 years were added by the Court of Appeal of Brussels, for the criminal offenses of drug trafficking and belonging to a criminal organization, i.e. 18 years in total.
A 2021 trial against the Albanian revealed that 13 of the plantations generated around €4 million, which money is believed to have been reinvested by the gang. Fejzulla Haredini was born in Albania, but lived in Belgium for a long time. His whole family was involved in the organization.
His 31-year-old son was also sentenced to 3 years in prison, as a logistic assistant and plantation guard. Haredin himself has been on the run since September 22, 2014. Since then, he has not been seen in Belgium by the police. The Albanian often presented himself as Greek and used Greek nicknames such as 'Spiros', 'Robotis Postolis' or 'Vasileios Samaras'.
