The Dubai Police have arrested Denis Matoshi, a leader of the Albanian-speaking “Kompania Bello” gang, a transnational organised crime syndicate involved in drug trafficking and smuggling operations between South America and Europe with an estimated street value of 350 million euros (Dh1.523 billion).

As part of an international operation code-named ‘Los Blancos’, Dubai Police arrested the suspect who is wanted by the Italian authorities on charges of criminal complicity and leading a drug-trafficking gang at an international level. The operation, which involved the anti-drug departments of 10 countries, resulted in apprehending 20 wanted gang leaders in a synchronised series of raids last Tuesday.
