Britain begins the deportation of Albanian prisoners, who is the first to be

Great Britain has begun deporting thieves and drug dealers as a measure to free up prison space. The news was confirmed for "The Telegraph" by the Secretary of State for Justice, Alex Chalk.

According to him, the aforementioned lawbreakers will not be sentenced to prison, but will be penetrated by receiving conditional warnings, according to which they are prohibited from returning to Britain.

Albanians arrested in Britain are also part of the deportation.

"The first person deported under the scheme was a serious drug smuggler imprisoned for 17 years," Chalk said.

Albanians make up 13% of all foreign criminals in UK prisons, the largest proportion, with 1,323 currently incarcerated.

Britain has reached a deal with Albania to transfer 200 of its most dangerous criminals, who are serving four years or more, to serve the rest of their sentences in their country.
