Based on a EUROPOL report, according to which Albanians in the period 2018 - 2020 Albanians constitute the largest number of people arrested in Europe in actions where cocaine was seized, came the reaction of journalist Artan Hoxha.
Invited to "ABC Live", Hoxha also gave some details of the Albanian organized crime that carry out their activity in Europe and beyond. The most worrying thing, according to Hoxha, that has alarmed the international structures for cracking down on crime, is the fact that the Albanian organized crime is growing rapidly. Hoxha said that there are two segments of Albanian organized crime, the one that operates in the EU and the organized crime that carries out illegal activity in Albania.
Journalist Hoxha emphasized that another reason why Albanian organized crime groups are being viewed with such concern is that they are present at the source of strong narcotics. So Albanians have created their own network of cocaine trafficking being present from the country of origin in Latin America until the arrival and subsequent distribution of drugs throughout Europe.
"It is worrying that Albania is a small country. And the large number of Albanians arrested for drug trafficking is worrying. Many young Albanians have been arrested for drug trafficking as part of organized crime groups. Albanian groups are attracting so much attention because they are becoming present in the source countries. So they are trying to switch to wholesale, because they want to be first hand. "They have proven to be present in the investigated lines that move him from Latin America to Europe." said among others Hoxha.
However, Hoxha stressed that the Albanian organized crime groups are not yet at the level of Serbian groups or "Ndrangheta". According to him, the problem that Albanians appear more than other criminal groups is that they are not protected as much. According to Hoxha, in other groups they try not to commit murders or useless conflicts, in order not to be exposed, while in Albanian groups the opposite happens.
“Shqiptarët nuk janë ende në nivelin e Ndranghet-ës dhe grupet e krimit të organizuar serb. Se janë shumë herë më përpara. Por tek raporti i Europol, ka disa karakteristika të grupeve shqiptare, që grupet e tjera nuk i kanë dhe nuk i përdorin. Se dalin të ekspozuara. Organizatat mafioze mundohen të mos bie në vëmendje dhe të mos bëjnë vrasje kot. Por ne bëjmë të kundërtën. Grupi “Hellbanianz” në Angli. A thua se janë më të mëdhenjtë, por jo por vetëm sa tërhoqën vëmendjen e mediave. Ne nuk mund të jemi sa Ndrangheta dhe nuk mund të zëmë vendin e Marokut si urë lidhëse. Ne jemi bërë shqetësues se për një kohë të shkurtër, kemi ecur me hapa galopantë. Njerëz që i shihnim në rrugë i shohim sot me krimin e organizuar të importit të drogës nga Amerika Latine.”, tha Hoxha.
"We have Albanians who were killed there in Ecuador or other countries. We have become disturbing. That when we caught 1 ton in our country, imagine how the situation went. She has entered the territory and that is why the police so easily catch groups but are not able to hit the brain. That the budget is very big ", said Hoxha.
