Albanian murder suspect arrested

 

An Albanian man accused of multiple murders in his home country has been arrested in the UK after 15 years on the run, Scotland Yard said.

Ndrieim Sadushi, 41, was picked up by officers outside his home in north London late last night on an international warrant.

He is alleged to have been involved in the killing of three people and the attempted murder of a fourth in Albania in 1997.

In addition to being wanted by the Albanian police, authorities in Italy accuse Sadushi of money laundering and drugs trafficking.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police's extradition unit arrested Sadushi shortly after 11pm outside a property in High Road, Southgate.

He is due to appear before Westminster Magistrates Court later today for an extradition hearing.
