The World's Ten Most Wanted

Postby thewestside » April 27th, 2008, 8:07 pm

Osam Bin Laden
The most wanted man in the world is believed to be hiding in Pakistan, perhaps in the Waziristan region. U.S. President George W. Bush has said Bin Laden is wanted dead or alive. But for six years, Bin Laden has been able to evade the largest manhunt in international history by sticking to the unruly tribal areas along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda, is the world's biggest terrorist. He has been indicted in federal court in New York for the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed more than 200 people. Bin Laden has also been charged for conspiring to kill Americans outside the U.S. He has claimed responsibility for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S. that killed 3,000 people, including both Americans and foreign nationals. The State Department has put a $25 million reward on his head. The Saudi-born Bin Laden is probably 51 years old.


Image

Joaquin Guzman
Mexico's most powerful drug trafficker has taken over the drug racket once dominated by Colombians like Pablo Escobar. Guzman, known as el Chapo, or shorty, heads the Sinaloa Cartel, specializing in importing cocaine from Colombia and smuggling it into the U.S., often through elaborate tunnels. Ruthless and determined, Guzman has lorded over a bloody power struggle in Mexico over transport corridors to the U.S. that have left thousands dead.

After the Mexican courts ruled he could be extradited to the U.S. in 2001, Guzman escaped from prison in a laundry truck. Since then he has evaded close encounters with the Mexican military. The U.S. government has indicted Guzman and placed a $5 million bounty on this fugitive.


Image

Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov
Originally from Uzbekistan, Tokhtakhounov is the face of the modern Russian mob, especially since Semion Mogilevich was detained earlier this year. Tokhtakhounov is known as "Taiwanchik" for his Asian features. The U.S. government calls him a "major figure in international Eurasian Organized Crime" who has been involved in "drug distribution, illegal arms sales and trafficking in stolen vehicles."

He is suspected of fixing everything from beauty pageants to Olympic events in Utah. In 2002, the U.S. government indicted him for bribing Olympic figure skating judges to favor the French team, robbing Canadians Jamie Sale and David Pelletier of gold medals in the pairs competition. The U.S. tried to get him after he was arrested in Italy, but the Italians eventually freed Tokhtakhounov, who has since disappeared and is probably in Russia.


Image

Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar
India's most wanted man heads D-Company, an organized crime group based in Mumbai. This son of a policeman reputedly oversees a criminal empire involved in all sorts of international activity, including drug trafficking, counterfeiting, weapons smuggling and murder. Ibrahim is suspected of having organized the 1993 Bombay Blasts that killed 257 people and wounded 713.

He is believed to have associated with Al Qaeda. The U.S. has declared him a global terrorist and the United Nations has attempted to freeze his assets. Though the Pakistani government denies it, the 52-year-old Ibrahim is probably in Pakistan. He is believed to have close links to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency and travels on passports from India, Yemen, Pakistan. There are rumors that he has had plastic surgery to alter his appearance.


Image

Matteo Messina Denaro
The world's most famous organized crime network remains powerful and arguably its most formidable fugitive member is Denaro, who is also known as "Diabolic." The Italian mafia's playboy, Denaro is known for living a fast lifestyle, driving Porches and fancying Rolex watches. He is believed to be taking over the mafia's operations in the fallout surrounding the capture of long time Cosa Nostra leaders, most notably Bernardo Provenzano, who Italian authorities finally grabbed in 2006. Denaro played an important role in a Cosa Nostra campaign in 1993 involving deadly bomb attacks to force the government to stop its mafia crackdown.


Image

Felicien Kabuga
The most wanted man in Africa is accused of being the driving force behind one of the worst genocides in human history. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda is seeking Kabuga for "serious offences under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, crimes against humanity and genocide," in connection with the massacre of over 800,000 Rwanda men woman and children in 100 days of terror in 1994.

The rich businessman is accused of bankrolling the Hutu militias that committed the murders. Kabuga's radio station propagated extremist Hutu ideology and incited violence against the Tutsi population of Rwanda. He also provided weapons, uniforms and transportation that assisted the militias and made massive purchases of machetes and hoes that were used as weapons. Kabuga fled Rwanda and is believed to be elsewhere in Africa, possibly Kenya.


Image

Pedro Antonio Marin
Known as Manuel Marulanda, Marin is the long-time leader of the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionaria Colombia, or FARC, a Marxist group set up in the 1960s in the spirit of Fidel Castro. Marin is now accused of venturing into the drug business and other criminal activity, like conducting for-ransom kidnappings. The U.S. government, which designated FARC a terrorist group, says they control most of Colombia's cocaine production and supply more than half the world's cocaine. The U.S. government has put a $5 million bounty on his head.


Image

Omid Tahvili
Tahvili is the kingpin of a Persian organized crime family in Canada connected to various Triads and other global criminal groups. Known as Nino, Tahvili walked out the door of a maximum security prison in British Columbia in November after bribing a guard with the promise of $50,000. He was awaiting sentencing after being convicted of kidnapping and sexual assault. Tahvili, 37, had tortured a relative of someone he suspected stole $500,000 of his drug money. The U.S. government wants him for his alleged operation of a fraudulent telemarketing business that scammed $3 million from elderly American victims. The scamsters told victims they would win a lottery if they would pay a bogus advance fee. Tahvili is believed to have connections throughout Europe and the Middle East, and remains an international operator.


Image

Joseph Kony
The head of the Lord's Resistance Army, a guerrilla group trying to establish a theocratic government in Uganda using brutal means. Under Kony, the LRA has displaced 2 million people and created the highest child abduction rate in the world. Kony has directed the abduction of 60,000, including 30,000 children, forcing them to fight in his campaign of murder, rape, mutilation and sexual slavery. He reputedly forces children to murder their own parents as part of their initiation into his group. The International Criminal Court has issued a warrant for his arrest, indicting Kony on 33 charges, including crimes against humanity and war crimes.


Image

James "Whitey" Bulger
Leader of the Winter Hill Gang, an Irish American crime family based in Boston that controlled illicit drug trade and extortion rackets in South Boston. Bulger has shown how hard it can be to capture a criminal. The FBI has pursued Bulger for more than a decade for Bulger's alleged roles in numerous murders. His wealth is estimated between $30 million and $50 million and he has associated with major criminal enterprises throughout North America and Europe, including the Irish Republican Army. The 78-year-old is using the wealth and contacts he developed through his criminal operations to stay out of the reach of law enforcement and is believed to be on the run with his longtime girlfriend. The FBI has a $1 million price tag on him, but by concealing his appearance and using false identities, Bulger has evaded the substantial effort to bring him to justice. There are indications that he recently traveled to Sicily.

I doubt he is still living a fast lifestyle, lol.
It is really crazy in Italy, how powerful and entrenched the mafia is, yet on the other side how so many of the bosses are fugitives/in prison.Every week you hear about new
killings, arrests, confiscations, corruption etc.
And it is for sure the most fascinating organization to do research about, with their values, rules, rituals, long history ...
...most of their bosses having worked up their way through decades of work, being stone cold gangsters...

lol, what does it mean to purchase and use "hoes" as weapons?

Anyway, the numbers mentioned in the descriptions of this guy and Joseph Kony are terrifying.What a bunch of bastards.

Recently the FBI spread a new picture everywhere, supposedly showing Whitey Bulger and his girlfriend, along with the 1$ million bounty.
Well, they found the persons shown in the picture, but it turned out is wasnt Whitey, lol.


Just 2 or 3 days ago one of the most wanted Colombian drug bosses, Victor Manuel Mejia was killed in a shootout with the Colombian Police.
He and his brother, Miguel Angel Mejia who remains a fugitive, were said to have shipped at least 70 tons of cocaine to the US in just two years.
The informant who led police to Victor might get paid the 5 million dollars very soon, but I seriously doubt he will enjoy it much in witness protection.
Or he should really pray that his identity remains secret.

Messina Denaro has extensive political connections that have protected him for years now. The exit of Prodi and Berlusconi's return to power will only help the Mafia.

Yea either his kidney stuff or he has just been killed. He has had no major appearance in the public, through videos or anything else in the last years. Its very quiet around him. And i think if he would be alive, he would let us know once in a while, to encourage his followers and threaten the world. It doesnt make sense for someone like him to be quiet like that.

There was a story in the papers a few months back about how U.S. special forces came very close to finding him. This came out from an informer after the fact, but at one point while on search patrols, the American soldiers came very close to a cave where Bin Laden and his bodyguards were hiding. So close in fact, that the bodyguards were ready to kill Bin Laden (as previously planned) so he wouldn't be captured alive.

Maybe he's waiting for the US elections to pass.
Chances are if a democrat wins they'll try and scale back the troops in the middle east.
If he speaks up now that'll give the future prez more reason to stay in the middle east and look for him.
and theres also the fact that about every month the news reports a US killing of a major al-queda leader.
If i was him and alive ill be parinod and shut the fuck up too cuz whos to say the US didnt torture one of my young bols and got some info on where im at.

He was born in 1929. So he'll be 80 next year. He's probably still very much alive.

Top guerrilla leader has died, Reuters says
For 40 years, 'Sureshot' led the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia


Image

BOGOTA, Colombia - The legendary leader of Latin America's largest guerrilla army has died after more than 40 years fighting the state from jungle and mountain camps, the Colombian government said on Saturday.

The death of Manuel Marulanda, known as Sureshot, who organized the Marxist-inspired Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, guerrilla force in the 1960s, would be the heaviest blow suffered by Latin America's oldest surviving insurgency, already weakened by a serious of military setbacks.

"Through military intelligence, we learned Pedro Antonio Marin, alias Manuel Marulanda or Sureshot, the principal chief of the FARC, is dead," the Defense Ministry said in a statement. "The cause of death is still to be confirmed."

Rumors that Marulanda had died or fallen seriously ill have surfaced before, but they have never been confirmed. He was believed to be about 80 and has not been seen in public since failed peace talks more than five years ago.

Colombia's government has announced his death various times over the past 15 years, but each time proof that he was alive cropped up months later.

"If (the FARC) are going to say that the information we have is not true, they should show him," said the statement, which was read by the military's chief of staff, Adm. David Moreno. It said Marulanda has been replaced as FARC leader by a rebel ideologue known as Alfonso Cano.

The army has for months said it has Cano cornered in the southwest Colombian jungle and that his death or capture is imminent. FARC statements have denied Cano is in the area.

Severe setbacks for rebels

The FARC has suffered the worst setbacks in its history this year, including the killing of its chief spokesman and a senior commander and the defection of a female leader well regarded inside the rebel group.

Marulanda either died of a heart attack, according to rebel information, or during military bombardments in late March in the southern jungles where he spent much of guerrilla life, the ministry said.

Born to a poor peasant family as Pedro Antonio Marin, Marulanda took up arms in a left-wing insurgency fighting for social justice in the 1960s. He and other survivors of a 1964 army attack on a peasant community escaped to the mountains and formed the FARC.

Marulanda's deadly aim in combat against the army earned him the name "Sureshot."

Notoriously reclusive, he is said to have never set foot in Colombia's capital or to have left the country, giving just a handful of interviews over the course of his life.

With little popular support, Marulanda's rebels have been driven into remote jungles and mountains, but remain a potent force in some areas, bolstered by money from drug smuggling. U.S. and E.U. officials list the FARC as terrorists.

U.S.-backed campaign takes toll

Violence from the conflict has eased as President Alvaro Uribe, backed by billions in U.S. military aid, has sent troops to retake areas once under guerrilla control. Often using homemade landmines and mortars, the FARC is still battling security forces.

But several top FARC commanders have been killed or captured recently as the rebels struggle against increasing military pressure and growing desertions from their ranks.

Experts said Marulanda's authority had been a cohesive element in the FARC, which during its peak had 17,000 fighters but is now closer to 9,000 combatants.

"The FARC is like a dying giant, dying slowly, but this is the beginning of the end," Pablo Casas, an analyst at Bogota think tank Security and Democracy. "I don't see any factor they can use to keep a strong structure. It will start collapsing."

Scores of hostages still held

The FARC's No. 2, Raul Reyes, was killed in March when Colombian troops raided his base inside Ecuador, in an operation that triggered a regional crisis with Venezuela and Ecuador briefly ordering troops to Colombia's frontier.

Colombian and U.S. officials say files found on Reyes' computer indicate Venezuela's President Hugh Chavez and Ecuadorean leader Rafael Correa provided financial support or backing to the rebels. Both leaders deny those charges.

While Marulanda's death may be a blow to the FARC's structure, questions linger over the fate of scores of hostages the guerrillas have held for years, including French-Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt and three Americans.

Attempts to broker a deal to free kidnap victims are deadlocked over rebel demands that Uribe demilitarize a rural zone for negotiations. He refuses, saying that would allow the FARC to rearm and regroup in a strategic region.
