London: A gangster known as the "Butcher of Bulgaria" for slicing off people`s ears and fingers will be deported from Britain to serve 18 years in jail for murder.

Tihomir Georgiev, 44, had pleaded to stay in Britain under the Human Rights Act, and claimed he would not get a fair trial in Bulgaria, The Sun reported.

He said he would be treated badly by police in custody, and that prisons in Bulgaria were "degrading".

But the judge at London`s Westminster magistrate`s court ruled that he would be extradited.

Georgiev was arrested in January after being traced to a boxing gym in Bermondsey in south London.
He fled Bulgaria last year after being linked to eight killings.
