Europol publishes list of Europe's 57 most wanted fugitive

BRUSSELS, Jan 29 (KUNA) — European law enforcement authorities have joined forces to create a new website (www.eumostwanted.eu) where the public can help police trace Europe’s Most Wanted Fugitives.
This was announced in a press release by Europol, EU law enforcement agency at the Hague, the Netherlands, on Friday.
“Aiming at increasing security within the EU, this is the first initiative on a pan-European level to jointly present a most wanted list on a common platform,” it noted.
The website published a list of Europe’s 57 most wanted criminals. Salah Abdeslam, a French national from the Molenbeek suburb of Brussels, who was involved in the November Paris terror attacks, tops the list of the most wanted criminals.
The 28 EU member states were asked to nominate two fugitives, except for France that was allowed to nominate three. (end) nk.bs
