Europe has its fair share of criminals.With organised crime associated more deeply with some European nations than any other, there’s bound to be a bit of money laundering and fraud going on.
With ethnic conflict and war affecting the continent, there’s bound to be some war criminals.
With fragile political relations between some nations, there’s bound to be some political murders.
So, here’s a list of some of the most wanted men in Europe courtesy of Interpol and the FBI.
The 43-year-old Sicilian mafia boss has been on the run from Italian and international police since 1993.
That year, Denaro took part in some deadly bomb attacks to stop a government crack down.
Additionally, he has a penchant for fancy watches and fast sports cars. Presumably, he likes the latter because it allows him to get away from cops quickly.
For five years Cvetkovic has resided in Israel with his wife, while Bosnian authorities have tried to have him extradited back to his home country.
A Bosnian Serb, it is claimed that he took part in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre where 8,000 Bosnian Muslims were killed. He denies that he was involved saying he was only an army driver between the years of 1992 and 1995.
Interpol has an arrest warrant out for him, accusing Cvetkovic of genocide.
Last month an Israeli court ruled that Cvetkovic could be extradited to Bosnia for trial, but he is set to appeal the decision, meaning he could stay in Israel for a whole lot longer.
Blackledge has been on the run for 25 years and he's a slippery character.
He's wanted mainly in the U.S. and Canada, but British police are also on the hunt for the now 76-year-old cocaine king-pin.
Blackledge has been accused of a number of crimes, including importing a shipment of cocaine weighing one ton into the U.S. He also was accused of supplying the Hell's Angels of Montreal with $10 million of cocaine.
Interpol made Blackledge one of their most wanted in 2005. He hasn't been caught yet.
Stalmans was implicated in 2010 when Canadian authorities seized over $46 million worth of assets said to have originated from money launderers with strong links to organised crime.
Two were arrested as a result of the largest seizure to date in Canadian history, but Stalmans eluded that cops. Interpol still has an arrest warrant out for him.
During the raid, police seized five bank accounts, four cars, four buildings and four homes.
A former general in the Yugoslav People's Army, Kadijević is wanted for war crimes committed after he took the role in 1992.
He is currently living in Russia, having been granted citizenship by Dmitry Medvedev in 2008. Though there is an international warrant out for his arrest, Russia will not expedite him and he remains in Moscow, safe from international courts.
He denies ever having committed any war crimes and expressed in a television appearance in 2000 that he only had knowledge of some of the atrocities committed during the Slovenian and Croatian Independence wars after he retired.
A former prominent leader of Basque-separatist group ETA, Ternera has previously done significant jail time for his violent role.
In 2007 he was placed on Interpol's wanted list once again for acts of terrorism and threats to human life and health.
He previously served time for possession of false documents and illegal weapons as well as being head of ETA's operations during the 1980s.
Not just wanted in Europe, Mogelivich makes the FBI's most wanted list as well.
The Ukranian-born Russian mobster is wanted for defrauding thousands of investors in a multi-million dollar scheme. After the scheme collapsed in 1998 it was discovered that investors had been cheated out of $150 million in all.
He has been wanted since 2003. The FBI has slapped a reward of $100,000 on his head.
This one's a controversial one.
Lugovoi is wanted in the UK for the murder of Alexander Litvinenko, a staunch opponent of Vladimir Putin and British citizen, in 2006. Lugovoi is accused of putting the radioactive isotope that killed Litvinenko into his cup of tea in a London sushi restaurant.
Lugovoi has said he will never go to trial in the UK over the incident. He says he will only accept a trial if it is conducted in Russia and generally plays down his role in the whole episode.
Needless to say, Russia won't expedite him to the UK.
Brunner may well be dead, but that doesn't mean he's not still the number one most wanted Nazi.
Adolf Eichmann's right hand man was convicted of sending children to death camps in France in 2001. But he wasn't there, he was believed to be residing in Syria at the time. Syria refused to comply with any investigation as to his whereabouts.
Various reports have suggested that Brunner is already dead, but none of these are conclusive. If he is alive, he'd be 99-years-old by now. The chances of this are slim, but that doesn't mean he's not being looked for.
