Interpol should be able to tell the authorities in places like Kosovo that they must give up these alleged criminals for a trial or they will be taken by force, including military force. Harboring a criminal enterprise is a blight on humanity. On the flip side, if the victim's country was willing to take a few coins from some stupid woke agenda and invest it in anti-scam police forces, most of this crap would never happen.
