Europol and the European Network of Fugitive Active Search Teams (Enfast) on 29 September published their 2022 EU Most Wanted campaign. Four persons are wanted for crimes committed in Luxembourg.

More than fifty fugitives linked to organised crime groups have been added to the list this year. The 2022 “Game Over” campaign specifically focused on leaders and key members of organised crime groups, explains Enfast in a press release. “By targeting criminals in pivotal roles within these networks, the campaign seeks to topple entire organised crime groups,” it explains.

By spreading the campaign through different social media platforms and a mural in Brussels, the organisation hopes to reach as wide an audience as possible. Anyone who recognises one of the criminals wanted can leave an anonymous tip.

Of the 335 fugitives posted on the campaign website in the six years since its launch, 120 have been found, of which 43 were identified thanks to the website.

Two of the profiles have been marked as dangerous. Serbian native Zarko Pijankovic is wanted for having participated in an armed robbery in a jeweller’s store in Luxembourg in 2008. The man and his accomplices had threatened the store’s employees and customers with weapons and stolen watches worth several hundred thousand euros, before fleeing in a stolen Mercedes.

Pijankovic--who changed his last name from Stefanovic--appears to be part of the Pink Panther gang, which has is wanted in connection with numerous robberies in the EU.

Twenty-three-year-old Abdullah Khodor is also wanted in Luxembourg for his part in a violent homejacking in Gonderange in 2017. Alongside another offender, the German-Lybian had threatened a woman and her underage niece with knives before stealing jewellery and money. Khodor was also determined to be dangerous.

An Albanian national, Edinjo Pulti, used a knife to stab two men several times on 2 August 2020 in Petange, severely injuring one of them.

Lastly, German national Rigo Wendt is suspected of human trafficking and pimping between 2012 and 2019. Wendt allegedly set up an escort and call-girl service which also covered the grand duchy, and coordinated the transport of women from Germany to Luxembourg. Wendt also owned three brothels in Germany.
