AN ALBANIAN who was jailed for his links with organised crime has been stripped of £55,000.

Admerin Beu, 41, was caught transporting “dirty” money to England, and he had provided a safe house for cocaine worth £120,000 at a flat in Lochinvar Drive, Granton, Edinburgh.

He was jailed for eight months and nine months at a hearing at the High Court in Edinburgh earlier this year, and yesterday he returned to the court to face proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

The judge, Lord Brailsford, was told that an agreement had been reached between the Crown and Beu, and he formally granted a confiscation order in the sum of £55,851.
