Hungary Today reports on the apprehension of a wanted fugitive. Following the rape of a 13-year-old girl in Hamburg on 13 November 2016, the suspect, a 29-year-old Iraqi citizen presumed to be living in Germany under an assumed name and unclear asylum status, fled. A European and international arrest warrant was issued. After the German police turned to the Hungarian authorities with a request for help in identifying the man and his location in January, the Hungarian police requested the assistance of the Hungarian Immigration and Asylum Office (BMH). It also liaisoned with the European Network of Fugitive Active Search Teams (ENFAST) for the duration of the search.
After a careful comparison of Hungarian and international
information, police were able to discover, not only that the suspect had
been living under an alias, but that on the basis of photographs and
fingerprints, they were able to identify him as 29-year-old C. Ali D.
This C. Ali D. has arrived in Hungary by train on 17 November. He was
duly arrested in Kiskunhalas on 17 February. His extradition will be arranged at a later date. Strike one for the Hungarian police.
