Ilir Kumbaro, a former east European spy master, is alleged to have kidnapped and tortured three men in his Albanian homeland. But after falling out with officials there, he fled to Britain in 1996.
He allegedly used the alias Shaqa Shatri to claim asylum and moved to a council estate in Fulham, London.
He is understood to be claiming thousands of pounds in jobseeker’s allowance and housing benefits, having never worked during his 13-year life in Britain.
And why not? His side won, after all.
