‘Wish you were here’: Police send postcards to Europe’s most-wanted criminals

<p>Police have sent mocking postcards to <a href="https://eumostwanted.eu/">Europe’s most-wanted criminals</a> in a bid to get the public’s help in tracking them down.</p> <p>They say traditional investigative measures have so far failed to track down the suspects.</p> <p>Police forces across Europe have scribed sardonic messages and used cliches about each country in an apparent bid to get maximum exposure.</p> <p>Belgian police’s message to Artur Nawrocki, who is wanted for drug trafficking, reads: “Dear Artur, Belgian fries are the best and we know you miss them. Come back to enjoy them. We’ll have a nice surprise in store for you. See you soon, the Belgian federal police.”</p> <h3>Czech Republic: “We have a cold pilsner and a generous gift voucher for you!”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-CzechRepFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Italy: “Don’t you miss the taste of real Italian cuisine?</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-ItalyFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Spain: “The beaches of Spain are missing you.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-Spainfinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>France: “We miss you.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-FranceFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Slovakia: “We’d love to hear what you have been up to.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-SlovakiaFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Croatia: “The waters of the Adriatic are missing you.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-Croatiafinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Poland: “Wawel dragon will be waiting for you in his cave.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-PolandFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Sweden: “Here are some (Ikea) instructions on how to contact us.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-SwedenFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Finland: “We know you’re a master of forgery but there is only one real Santa … and he wants you back.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-FinlandFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Estonia: “Please get back in touch.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-EstoniaFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Latvia: “Our country has so much to offer a man like you.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-LatviaFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Belgium: “Belgian fries are the best and we know you miss them”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-Belgiumfinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Luxembourg: “You have been running from us for over a year.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-LuxembourgFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Austria: “Please come back to enjoy our beautiful Alps.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-Austriafinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Slovenia: “We have something special for you.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-SloveniaFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>UK: “There is still so much to discuss.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-UKFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Hungary: “We know you like a spiced stuff, so we have prepared a very spiced goulash.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-HungaryFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Bulgaria: “We have a little surprise for you.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-Bulgariafinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Cyprus: “We are inviting you back to Aphrodite’s island.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-Cyprusfinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Romania: “Count Dracula is celebrating his annual vampire parade and you’re invited.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-RomaniaFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p> <h3>Lithuania: “The prison is missing a member.”</h3> <p><br /> </p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/38/16/381675/675x473_bonus-LituaniaFinal.jpg" alt="" /></p>
