James Dalamangas is still one of Australia’s most wanted criminals


Fugitive Graham Potter was known as Australia’s most wanted man after evading authorities for 12 years.

But now, following his arrest this week in a shack in Far North Queensland, other fugitives have moved up one position in the most wanted rankings.

According to The Daily Telegraph, this includes Greek Australian criminal, James Dalamangas, who is described as having a medium build at 180-185cm tall.

Dalamangas is still on the run.

Dalamangas is accused of the stabbing murder of Sydney man, George Giannopoulos, at a nightclub in Belmore in Sydney’s southwest in April 1999.

He is currently on the run in Greece where as a dual Australian and Greek national, the Greek government has refused to extradite him. They have agreed to prosecute him in Greece if he is ever caught.

A $200,000 reward is available for information that may lead to Dalamangas’ arrest.

In July 2021, an Anom operation codenamed Ironside handed 25 million messages to the FBI and the Australian Federal Police.

The operation saw a number of criminals overseas, including Dalamangas, relocate in the wake of learning that their encrypted chats had been monitored by cops.
