Albania Red-Faced Over Soldiers Deserting in UK

Defence Ministry acknowledges embarrassing reports that four of the highest trained soldiers failed to return home from a training mission in UK, again exposing the problem of low salaries and hopelessness in Albania.

Albania's Ministry of Defence said on Thursday that it has opened criminal proceedings against four officers who failed to return home from a training mission in the United Kingdom, apparently prferring to live in the UK as illegal immigrants than enjoy a career in the armed forces of Albania.

"Regarding the news published in the media ... the press office of the Ministry of Defence says: four servicemen, while serving outside the country, have not returned to Albania after ending the service".

They have been charged with desertion and their case has been under investigation for several weeks, the press release added.

Albania is used to news about people's desperate attempts to migrate to Western countries due to economic stress and lack of hope, but the desertion of some of the best trained servicemen in the country is still seen as an extra embarrassment for the government.

The father of one of the "deserters" told the local newspaper Panorama that his son had served in Afghanistan and was one of the best trained men in the country but he had still been forced to survive on 30,000 lek [about 225 euros] a month.

Albania has a few thousand strong professional army which over the last decade has been overstretched in several peace-keeping missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.

However, the soldiers are still expected to serve back home on meager salaries and in difficult conditions, often stationed far away from home.

During the last few years, there have been cases of soldiers returning from Afghanistan committing suicide or homicide while in one case, former soldiers were arrested after organizing a string of hits against private security vans carrying millions of euros.

Albania has a long history of mass immigration. The last wave, on 2015-2017, saw tens of thousands of Albanians registering as asylum seekers in Germany, France and other countries.

Immigration possibilities are widely discussed among youngsters, although the government claims that this is "not a problem".

I was going to do a thread on this article but I can post it here:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4873792/50-Albanians-arrested-week-drug-gang-surge.html#ixzz4ymbhj7u6

Fifty Albanian thugs are being arrested every week in Britain following a surge in drug-related gang warfare

* Thousands of people from the tiny Balkan state are being detained in the UK
* Crimes include murder, drug dealing, money laundering and people smuggling
* Albanian drug dealers are now ‘a significant threat’ on Britain’s streets, says NCA
* Organised crime groups have huge influence on supplying cocaine around UK

In total last year, police arrested Albanian crime suspects 2,781 times – up 8 per cent on the 2,578 held in 2015. It suggests around 1 in 11 of the 32,000 Albanian-born residents in England and Wales were detained, although some individuals may have been taken into custody more than once. But thousands of Albanians allowed into the UK are suspected of adopting bogus identities from neighbouring Kosovo, claiming persecution during the regional conflict 18 years ago. Imposters are now fronting a drugs and prostitution scandal on Britain's streets.

MEP Jane Collins, the UKIP home affairs spokesman, said: 'The number of Albanians arrested for other crimes who are here illegally demonstrates that our borders are currently not fit for purpose, even though we are an island. It seems to me that we have people in the government and Home Office with a 16th century view of border management, whilst trafficking gangs are developing new strategies each day to get their human cargo into this country illegally.

We are hamstrung by our membership of the EU, which limits our ability to deal with immigration but a huge amount of the blame needs to be put at the door of the politicians and civil servants who have repeatedly mismanaged and cut finances for policing and security.'
