“An Albanian murderer is broadcasting live videos from his UK prison cell on TikTok, in which he flirts with women and plays online games with criminals in other prisons.”
This is how the article of the British media, Daily Mail, begins, which has dedicated an article to the Albanian Eugert Merizaj. Eugert Merizaj, has been sentenced to 32 years in prison for his role in the brutal shooting death of a drug rival.
He receives virtual “gifts” donated via TikTok by admirers, which he can exchange for money, writes albeu.com.
Despite the ban on cellphones in prison, Merizaj, 32, has been broadcasting five-minute live chats continuously every day for the past few weeks.
In a surprising breach of security, he boasted that his phone had been dropped into his Manchester prison by drone and that he hid it inside a toilet.
Merizaj, boasted last Monday that if his phone was discovered by prison officers, he would simply “buy another one”.
He claimed it was the third phone he used in prison, and each one cost him £2,000.
