£1,500 Revolving Door Farce
Albanian criminals are being handed £1,500 each in UK taxpayers' money as they are put on deportation flights home - but they openly boast that they'll be back within days.
Gangsters and thugs from the failed state who have been jailed in Britain are released ahead of serving their minimum sentence and paid to return to the Balkan state. More than 1,000 have been returned to Albania since the Government signed an agreement with Tirana in December last year.
About half of those were voluntary, with the rest either failed asylum seekers or foreign offenders.
Some of those deportees have told the BBC they had been sent back from British prisons and were offered money to agree to be sent back.
One prisoner, using the moniker "Mark", said he had been forcibly sent back to Albania after being given a six-year jail term for drug offences.
The 30-year-old served just two years before being deported and said he had been offered £1,500 under the "Facilitated Return Scheme". He was deported under the Early Release Scheme, which is used for prisoners of any nationality and does not require an inmate's consent.
Some of those deported say they will attempt a return within just days. "It's not a problem for me. I'll go back whenever I want," another said.
