The Secret Policeman's Fall

Secret Policeman on the loose in Britain.  Whodda thought?

Well done to my Amnesty colleagues whose persistence appears to be paying off in the case of Remzi Hoxha, who is believed to have died under torture at the hands of the Albanian secret police some 13 years ago.

The UK courts decided today to allow the extradition of Ilir Kumbaro, a former member of Albania’s secret police, to face charges of abduction and torture in his home country.

Kumbaro has spent the last 13 years living in the UK under a false identity. Looks like he may now be heading back to justice. 

You can run but you can't hide … from Amnesty.
