In Latin it is where the etymological origin of the term fugitive is found. Exactly it derives from “fugitivus”, which can be translated as “the one who is fleeing” and which is the result of the sum of two lexical components:
-The verb “flee”, which is synonymous with “flee”.
-The suffix “-tive”, which is used to indicate a passive or active relationship.
The notion is used to refer to who is running away from something or someone and therefore tries to keep hidden so as not to be discovered.
Usually fugitive is used synonymously with fugitive, alluding to a subject who seeks to escape from an authority or security force. For example: “The singer remains a fugitive since the Justice ordered his capture in the framework of a smuggling case”, “The German police managed to catch a fugitive wanted by Interpol”, “They found a fugitive who was hiding in an abandoned train station”.
The fugitives carry out certain actions to elude those who persecute him. It is common for them to move away from the place where they committed a crime or a lack and that they change location constantly to make the identification task difficult. They can also use costumes or wigs to mislead.
An individual who was imprisoned until he made a leakage from prison he becomes a fugitive when he escapes. Your objective will be to avoid the police in order to avoid being caught, since if you are caught you will have to go back to jail.
