Cleaned 2 million pounds, Albanian trafficker sentenced to prison in Britain
The British authorities have sentenced the Albanian Xhuljan Shehu to 11 years in prison, after he is accused of having laundered about 2 million pounds in Albania.
He used the encrypted communication platform 'EncroChat' to distribute drugs. The 30-year-old's location was revealed by a Right Move advert which exposed the location of his illegal business. 'Right Move' is a real estate agency in Britain.
According to what foreign media write, the 30-year-old oversaw the importation and distribution of cocaine in Britain, as well as in several Belgian cities, such as Antwerp and Brussels. The proceeds were then laundered in Albania and the Netherlands. Shehu supplied 30 kilograms of cocaine with a street value of £1.05m between 23 March and 2 June 2020, which he orchestrated from a flat in Whittington Way, Pinner, Harroë under the name 'Maidenram' on EncroChat. He also discussed using his ill-gotten gains to buy properties in Albania worth £2 million.
His arrest took place on 24 November 2021 in High Street, Uxbridge.
Further investigation revealed that he had used a fake Greek passport to secure the tenancy at the Pinner apartment in an attempt to hide his identity. A bank card with the same name was found in his wallet.
During the court hearing Shehu denied owning an Encro phone or having any involvement in the drug trade, instead claiming he worked in construction and was studying part-time for a degree.
