A REWARD of up to £10,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of two men wanted on suspicion of murder.

Tomasz Waga’s body was discovered by a member of the public at approximately 11.30pm on Thursday, January 28, 2021, in Westville Road, Penylan, Cardiff.

Five men have already been charged in connection with Mr Waga's death.

But two men – two Albanian nationals – remain wanted on suspicion of murder:

  • 29-year-old Artan Palluci, whose last known address was Cathays, Cardiff;
  • 22-year-old Elidon Elezi, whose last known address was East Finchley, London.

Police are appealing to the Albanian community in the UK and abroad to help them locate both men. 

A reward of up to £10,000 if is being offered to anyone who gives information - directly to CrimeStoppers - which leads to their arrest.

Detective Inspector Stuart Wales, from South Wales Police, said: 

“International borders are no barrier to us pursuing people suspected of murder in the UK, we have excellent links with law enforcement colleagues across Europe including Albania.

“I would appeal to both Mr Palluci and Mr Elezi that it is in your interests to come forward voluntarily and provide us with your accounts of what took place.

“Your assistance will enable Tomasz’s family to move on with their lives following their tragic loss.”

Hysland Aliaj, aged 31, was arrested in Germany and extradited to the UK in June in a joint operation involving South Wales Police Major Crime Detectives and German law enforcement agencies.

He joins four other men - Josif Nushi, Mihal Dhana, Gledis Mehalla and Mario Qato – who are due to stand trial in October charged with murder and other related offences.

Other individuals arrested during this investigation remain on bail awaiting trial in relation to other matters.

Numerous vehicles have been seized as part of the investigation but attention remains on the whereabouts of a silver/grey Mercedes C200 Sport, registration BK09 RBX.

South Wales Argus:

The Mercedes, which has links to the investigation and could contain vital evidence, was last seen in Cardiff on the day Mr Waga's body was found.
