Albanian authorities call for capture of cannabis kingpin

By Benet Koleka TIRANA (Reuters) – Albania’s Security Council called on law enforcement agencies on Friday to arrest a fugitive cannabis kingpin to quell doubts among NATO partners of the country’s resolve to fight the drugs trade. President Bujar Nishani, chairing the meeting, said the failure to catch Klement Balili had stained Albania’s image, as his drugs ring had spread to the territory of neighboring countries and NATO allies. “Our (NATO) partners and international law-enforcement agencies want this issue solved as soon as possible and have expressed their concerns several times,” Nishani said, according to a statement from his office.
