The suspected boss of the Banská Bystrica underworld, Mikuláš Černák was recaptured by Czech police on April 5.
The officers reported him to be in good spirits and said he joked that he might seek political asylum when he was captured at a petrol station near Prague.
He was ordered to be returned to prison last month after being released too early from an eight-year sentence. He had already left the country, and was believed to be in the Canary Islands.
