Paul Lambrino (aka Paul al Romanei) is in jail awaiting a decision to extradite him to Romania.  This decision, which can take about two months, will be made by the Paris Court of Appeal.   He was found by French police after visiting the same cafe in the 9th arrondissement in Paris for a month.  He was spotted wearing a mask although French's anti-Covid mask mandate is no longer mandatory.

It is understood that someone called the police as they thought Lambrino's "behavior in the cafe was suspicious."  The police detained Lambrino as he left the cafe.

Laurence Auer, the French Ambassador to Romania, told the press yesterday that Lambrino was caught "following the cooperation between the Romanian and French police."

In  December 2020, after he was sentenced to 3 years and 4 months for influence peddling, money laundering, and bribery,  Lambrino fled Romania.  When police arrived at his home to take him to jail, they learned he was no longer there.  He was placed under international surveillance shortly afterward.
