EUMW2023 General Campaign Teaser 1x1

Europol and ENFAST reveal updated 2023 EU Most Wanted list

This year’s campaign sees a fresh batch of wanted criminals uploaded to the website. Over 50 profiles of fugitives linked to serious crimes have been uploaded to the website this year. Some of the crimes committed by fugitives highlighted in this year’s list include murder, trafficking in human beings, armed robbery and cybercrime amongst other offences.

Europol’s Executive Director, Catherine De Bolle, said: "Collaboration across EU countries and with EU citizens is crucial when trying to find wanted fugitives. These criminals escape from country to country and repeatedly try to evade law enforcement authorities. By quickly browsing our EU Most Wanted list website , you could help save potential victims. Check the website and help us find them. Be our next hero."

Could you be our next hero?

The theme for this year’s campaign is that citizens can step into the story and be superheroes too. This year, the campaign will be present at the Dutch Heroes Comic Con in Utrecht on Saturday 18 November. The campaign will also appear across social media and there will be a call to action in all EU languages to reach as wide an audience as possible.

Since the #EUMostWanted website was launched, numerous citizens have transformed into heroes simply by alerting authorities to the whereabouts of fugitives. Fictionalised versions of these stories were transformed into comic strips for this year’s EU Most Wanted campaign. These stories highlight the vital role citizens can play in getting dangerous criminals off the street. The stories in these comic strips are based on real events and tips provided by our everyday heroes:

EU Most Wanted list gets results

The EU Most Wanted list has achieved significant success in the past with a number of anonymous tips leading to actual arrests. The EU’s Most Wanted was launched by the ENFAST community in January 2016 with the full support of Europol. Since then:

  • 408 profiles of fugitives have been listed on the website;
  • 146 fugitives have been arrested;
  • 50 arrests came as a direct result of a fugitive profile being published on the website;
  • 21 cases successfully solved since the launch of last year’s campaign in September 2022.

ENFAST

ENFAST aims to increase security within the EU by successfully tracing and arresting internationally wanted criminals who have committed serious crimes. The evolving nature of cross-border crime has prompted national police forces in EU Member States to combine forces and use their expertise to ensure that it is impossible for dangerous criminals to flee and escape punishment.
