Dick Martys Bericht an den Europarat
Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights

Inhuman treatment of people and illicit trafficking in human organs in Kosovo*

Draft report

Rapporteur: Mr Dick Marty, Switzerland, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe

Der Bericht, belegt deutlich, das damals das Militär Krankenhaus in Tirana, eine besonders wichtige Rolle, bei den kriminellen Operationen der Kosovo Mafia war! Bereits ab 1992, durften Kosovo Albaner, Militär Krankenhäuser in Nord Albanien, wie Tropoje und Kukes benutzen und hatten ab 1998, dann 1 komplettes Stockwerk im Militär Krankenhaus in Tirana, ohne Zugangs Möglichkeiten für Albaner und unter Leitung von Shaip Muja, einem Adviser von Hashim Thaci usw.. Shaip Muja, spielte auch 2010, rund um das illegale Organ Krankenhaus in Phristina: Medicus, die Schlüsselrolle im Gesundheits Ministerium des Hashim Thaci.

“[32] Muja was the overall “Medical Co-ordinator” for the KLA General Staff, a post in which he oversaw the provision of medical treatment for wounded KLA soldiers, as well as other emergency cases in KLA operational zones. Muja notably made use of the Military Hospital in Tirana, Albania, and administered extensive supplies and equipment acquired by the KLA through foreign donations. During 1998 and 1999, as the official representative of the KLA, supported by elements in the Albanian Army and the Albanian secret services, Muja also administered a diverse array of other infrastructure: at least one helicopter; several well-funded construction projects; and makeshift accommodation arrangements – including private houses and apartments – for KLA commanders, recruits and affiliates who travelled into Albania from overseas, including those en route to Kosovo.”



Kosovo PM is head of human organ and arms ring, Council of Europe reports

Two-year inquiry accuses Albanian ‚mafia-like‘ crime network of killing Serb prisoners for their kidneys


  • Article history

Photograph: Dieter Nagl/AFP/Getty ImagesKosovo’s prime minister is the head of a „mafia-like“ Albanian group responsible for smuggling weapons, drugs and human organs through eastern Europe, according to a Council of Europe inquiry report on organised crime.

    Hashim Thaçi is identified as „the boss“ of a network that began operating criminal rackets in the run-up to the 1999 Kosovo war, and has held powerful sway over the country’s government since.

    The report of the two-year inquiry, which cites FBI and other intelligence sources, has been obtained by the Guardian. It names Thaçi as having over the last decade exerted „violent control“ over the heroin trade.

    Figures from Thaçi’s inner circle are accused of secretly taking captives across the border into Albania after the war, where a few Serbs are said to have been murdered for their kidneys, which were sold on the black market.

    Legal proceedings began in a Pristina district court today into a case of alleged organ trafficking discovered by police in 2008. That case – in which organs are said to have been taken from impoverished victims at a clinic known as Medicus – is said by the report to be linked to Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) organ harvesting in 2000.

    It comes at a crucial period for Kosovo, which on Sunday held its first elections since declaring independence from Serbia in 2008. Thaçi claimed victory in the election and has been seeking to form a coalition with opposition parties.

    Dick Marty, the human rights investigator behind the inquiry, will present his report to European diplomats from all 47 member states at a meeting in Paris on Thursday.

    His report suggests Thaçi’s links with organised crime date back more than a decade, when those loyal to his Drenica Group became the dominant faction within the KLA.

    It says the group’s supremacy over splinter groups in the guerrilla movement enabled them, from 1998, to seize control of „most of the illicit criminal enterprises“ in which Kosovans were involved south of the border, in Albania.

    During the Kosovo conflict, Slobodan Milošević’s troops responded to attacks by the KLA by orchestrating a horrific campaign of ethnic cleansing against ethnic Albanians in the territory. As many as 10,000 are estimated to have died at the hands of Serbian troops.

    While deploring Serb atrocities, Marty said the international community chose to ignore suspected war crimes by the KLA, „placing a premium instead on achieving some degree of short-term stability“.

    He concludes that during the Kosovo war and for almost a year after, Thaçi’s forces meted out revenge against Serbs, Roma and ethnic-Albanians accused of „collaborating“ with the enemy.

    Thaçi and four other members of the Drenica Group are named in the report as having carried out „assassinations, detentions, beatings and interrogations“. This same hardline KLA faction has held considerable power in Kosovo’s government over the last decade, with the support of western powers keen to ensure stability in the fledgling state.

    The report paints a picture in which ex-KLA commanders have played a crucial role in the region’s criminal activity over the last decade.

    It says: „In confidential reports spanning more than a decade, agencies dedicated to combating drug smuggling in at least five countries have named Hashim Thaçi and other members of his Drenica Group as having exerted violent control over the trade in heroin and other narcotics.“

    Marty adds: „Thaçi and these other Drenica Group members are consistently named as „key players“ in intelligence reports on Kosovo’s mafia-like structures of organised crime. I have examined these diverse, voluminous reports with consternation and a sense of moral outrage.“

    His inquiry was commissioned after the former chief prosecutor for war crimes at The Hague, Carla Del Ponte, said she had been prevented from investigating senior KLA officials.

    Her most shocking claim, which she said required further investigation, was that the KLA smuggled captive Serbs across the border into Albania, where their organs were harvested.

    The report, which states that it is not a criminal investigation and unable to pronounce judgments of guilt or innocence, gives some credence to Del Ponte’s claims. It finds the KLA did hold mostly Serb captives in a secret network of six detention facilities in northern Albania.

    Thaçi’s Drenica Group „bear the greatest responsibility“ for the ad-hoc prisons and the fate of those held in them.

    They include a „handful“ of prisoners said to have been transferred to a makeshift prison just north of Tirana, where they were killed for their kidneys.

    The report states: „As and when the transplant surgeons were confirmed to be in position and ready to operate, the captives were brought out of the ’safe house‘ individually, summarily executed by a KLA gunman, and their corpses transported swiftly to the operating clinic.“

    The same Kosovan and foreign individuals involved in the macabre killings are linked to the Medicus case, the report finds.

    Marty is critical of the western powers which have provided a supervisory role in Kosovo’s emergence as a state for failing to hold senior figures, including Thaçi, to account. It criticises „faltering political will on the part of the international community to effectively prosecute the former leaders of the KLA.“

    It concludes: „The signs of collusion between the criminal class and the highest political and institutional office holders are too numerous and too serious to be ignored.

    „It is a fundamental right of Kosovo’s citizens to know the truth, the whole truth, and also an indispensable condition for reconciliation between the communities and the country’s prosperous future.“

    „If as expected the report is formally adopted by the committee this week, the findings will go before the parliamentary assembly next year.

Albanian Organized Crime the Biggest Threat
Bush with Albanian flag
Albanian Mafia the Single Biggest Threat to Europe

March 2008 report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime which went conveniently unnoticed and uncovered by the western mainstream media, though generally upbeat, bringing the good news of the crime rates dropping in the Balkan region as a whole, and announcing Balkans as „much safer than previously thought“, underlines, once again, the growing concern over the flourishing Albanian mafia, which is now, thanks to the Western power centers, ruling over the Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohija.

Beyond the fancy charts and maps, behind the joy over the „improving trends“, the UN report titled Crime and its Impact on the Balkans [.pdf file], hides a very grim reality of the far-reaching deadly tentacles of Albanian organized crime, exasperated and turned into a malignant disease by the western backing of severing Kosovo-Metohija province from Serbia.
Albanian Clans Take the Leading Place in Organized Crime

Excerpt from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime report for March 2008

[pg 61] From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, Turkish organized crime groups dominated European heroin markets. During the 1990s, however, a new ethnic group began to emerge in heroin trafficking: ethnic Albanians. As noted above, until 1991, the nation of Albania was one of the most isolated in the world. Albanians living in former Yugoslavia [in Serbia, Kosovo-Metohija province], however, moved with great freedom to the east and west, and there are reports of ethnic Albanian involvement in Italian organized crime groups from the mid-1980s.

…………….By 2000, Italian chief prosecutor Cataldo Motta went so far as to assert that „Albanian organized crime has become a point of reference for all criminal activity today. Everything passes via the Albanians.“

[pg 65] Arguably, Albanian heroin dealers are the single most notorious Balkan organized crime phenomenon. For example, a decade ago the Council of Europe noted in its organized crime situation report:

„While in former years the [heroin] trade [in Austria] was dominated by Turkish organizations, it was noted in 1998 that ethnic Albanians have now taken over… ethnic Albanian criminal organizations managed to build a Europe-wide network and hold monopolies in urban areas. They maintain operational bases in Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and in the Nordic countires…“

And in its 2005 situation report, the Council of Europe said:

„Ethnic Albanian criminal groups are reportedly responsible for a large part of the wholesale distribution of heroin in Europe… Ethnic Albanian criminal groups pose a significant threat to the EU because of their involvement in drug trafficking, THB [trafficking in human beings] and money laundering.“

„Ethnic Albanian Criminal Groups“ are the only national group discussed in the 2006 Europol [European department of Interpol] publication The Threat from Organized Crime:

„Ethnic Albanian organized crime groups have established themselves in many European Union Member States and beyond… ethnic Albanian crime groups are found to extend their role from facilitators to achieving full control in certain crime areas. They adapt without difficulties to local or changing situations.“
No „Freedom Fighters“, Just Criminals and Thugs

On the preceding pages, the latest Drugs & Crime UN report offers a rarely accurate analysis of the situation among the ethnic Albanians (both next door to Serbia, in neighboring Albania, and in Serbia itself, mainly in the southern Kosovo province), which led to formation of the Albanian terrorist KLA (UCK) and to the terrorist attacks in Serbia — an unusually honest glimpse at the root-causes of Albanian insurrection and occupation of part of Serbia, impossible to find in the tons of worthless junk produced daily by the Western mainstream media.

The following excerpt effectively dismantles the pompous claims of heroic „struggle for freedom and independence“ and disingenuous references to the „self-determination“ of an ethnic group which has already exercised its right to self-determination with the formation of state of Albania.

No, it has nothing to do with „freedom“, „independence“ or „self-determination“, it is all about illicit trade, crime without punishment, lawlessness, thuggery and insatiable greed.
Criminals, Terrorists or Politicians? In Kosovo-Metohija, all Three.

After the arrest of a man in Kosovo on war crimes charges this month, the BBC’s Nick Thorpe visits Albania, which is at the centre of the EU-led investigation into torture and murder.

Durres is a popular holiday spot, but is implicated in a dark chapter of history

The Hotel Drenica still graces the sea-front in Durres, on Albania’s Adriatic coast – one of a long line of hotels and restaurants waiting for the summer influx of tourists.

Children take their first dip of the season in the warming sea, while their parents sip coffee and watch them from the terraces, and boys play football on the sand.

Ties to neighbouring Kosovo run deep. Tens of thousands of refugees found shelter here during the war, and local people are proud of their role in helping their ethnic-Albanian brethren in their hour of need.

Many bars incorporate Kosovo in their names. In the 1998-99 conflict, the Hotel Drenica was at the centre of everything – it was the local headquarters of the Kosovo Liberation Army.

There is still an engraving on a red marble block at the back of the hotel, of a soldier and the initials UCK – the KLA.

But the arrest of Sabit Geci in Pristina on 6 May, and an ongoing investigation by the War Crimes Unit of Eulex – the European Union Law and Justice Mission in Kosovo – look set to show the role of Durres in a different light.

Mr Geci, 51, stands accused of the torture and killing of ethnic Albanian prisoners of the KLA at a detention facility within a KLA base in the north-east Albanian town of Kukes in 1999. According to investigators, some of the 40 people who were mistreated in Kukes were detained by the KLA in Durres.

New Details Emerge in Kosovo Organ Trafficking Case

The trial of seven Kosovo residents suspected of involvement in a massive human trafficking ring in 2008 is being linked to allegations that members of the Kosovo Liberation Army sold the organs of prisoners during the 1999 conflict.
Lawrence Marzouk

According to the Guardian, the Medicus clinic, just outside of Pristina, is linked in a Council of Europe report, to be published on Thursday, to allegations that the elements of the Kosovo Liberation Army traded the organs of prisoners during the 1999 conflict.

The council’s human rights rapporteur Dick Marty reports that there is “credible, convergent indications“ that the removal of organs from prisoners in Albania by the KLA is „closely related to the contemporary case of the Medicus clinic“.

The report states: „As and when the transplant surgeons were confirmed to be in position and ready to operate, the captives were brought out of the ’safe house‘ individually, summarily executed by a KLA gunman, and their corpses transported swiftly to the operating clinic.“

Marty’s report suggests the KLA held Serbs and other captives in secret detention centres in Albania and a small number of prisoners were then transferred to a makeshift clinic in Fushe Kruja, just north Tirana, where they were shot in the head before their kidneys were removed.

Seven Medicus-linked suspects appeared in court on Tuesday in Pristina accused of bringing up to 30 people, plucked from the poorest corners of the world, to Kosovo under the false promise that they would be paid for their kidneys.

Among the accused is Dr Lutfi Dervishi, a well known urologist, who is believed to be the ringleader, and his son Arban, who managed the clinic.

Driton Jilta, a former doctor with the OSCE in Kosovo, and Ilir Rrecaj, a former senior health ministry official, are also suspected of misusing their public positions.

Rrecaj is alleged to have issued a letter in 2008 giving Medicus the right to carry out organ transplants, despite a ban in Kosovo on private clinics carrying out these operations. Three other doctors are also suspected of involvement.

Five of the men pleaded not guilty, while doctors Islam Bytyqi and Sylejman Dulla did not enter a plea.

The charges range from people trafficking to the unlawful exercise of medical activity.

According to the indictment, read out in court, the men brought up to 30 organ donors to Kosovo from countries such as Kazakhstan, Moldova and Turkey in 2008, promising them around $20,000 in exchange for their kidney.

The seven Kosovars were allegedly aided by Dr Yusuf Sonmez, wanted for organ trafficking charges in a series of other countries, and Moshe Harel, an Israeli of Turkish origin who the prosecution says acted as the gang’s fixer, finding both donors and recipients and handling funds. Both men are currently on the run and Interpol notices have been issued for their arrest.

The organ recipients travelled to Kosovo from countries such as Israel, Canada and Poland to receive the kidneys.

The indictment said the gang preyed on the donors’ “extreme poverty” to lure them to Pristina, where they had their organs removed but were never paid.

The gang was uncovered after a 24-year-old Turkish man, Yiman Altun, was stopped at the airport in November 2008 as he was about to board a plane to Istanbul.

He had been questioned on arrival and had presented a letter from Medicus claiming that he was in Kosovo for medical treatment.

On his departure, however, he admitted that he had donated a kidney and, after a medical inspection, was sent to hospital.

Kosovo Police and the UN Mission in Kosovo officers then raided Medicus, discovering the elderly Israeli recipient in bed as well as expired medicine.

The recipients, according to the indictment, paid around $90,000 for the operation.

Another doctor named in the indictment, Israeli national Zaki Shapira, is described as an unindicted co-conspirator.

Along with Sonmez, Shapira has been connected to a string of organ trafficking cases across the world.

The confirmation hearing was delayed by legal arguments and will be reconvened in January before the EU rule-of-law mission judge. His decision on whether to hold a full trial will be made within 15 days.…rafficking-case

Kosova-Wegen Organhandel wurde Anklage erhoben

Im Jahr 2008 wurde die private Klinik „Medicus“ in Prishtina, Kosovo geschlossen. In der Klinik wurden za. 20 Personen Organe entnommen. Die Patienten die ihre Niere verkauften erhielten zwischen 5.000 und 14.000 Euro. Anschließend wurden die Nieren für bis zu 100.000 Euro verkauft . Jetzt erst hat die Staatsanwaltschaft Anklage erhoben. Die Chefs des Unternehmens der türkische Arzt Yusuf Sönmez und der israelische Arzt und Geschäftsmann

Moshe Harel reisten damals problemlos aus Kosova aus. Die missbrauchten Patienten kamen hauptsächlich mittels gefälschter Papiere aus der Republik Moldawien , Kasachstan, Russland und der Türkei. Das versprochene Geld bekamen die Patienten nur teilweise ausbezahlt. Nach Angaben der Staatsanwaltschaft waren fünf Kosovaren in den Fall verwickelt. Die Chefs des kriminellen Unternehmens waren der Chirurg Lutfi Dervishi aus Kosova , zusammen mit Sönmez und Harel. Keiner der Verdächtigen ist bis dato in Untersuchungshaft.Der EU Staatsanwalt erklärte, „Dervishi hatte eine Konferenz in Istanbul im Jahre 2006 besucht und gefragt, welche Person Organtransplantationen macht.“ Dervishi wurde sechs Monate später von Yusuf Sönmez kontaktiert. Lutfi Dervishi leitete dann die Operationen in der Klinik „Medicus“. Die Geschäfte führte sein Sohn Arban Dervishi Zwei weitere Ärzte, Sokol Jilta, Hajdini Bruno führten ebenfalls Operationen durch. Auch sie befinden sich nicht in Untersuchungshaft. Die Menschen nach Kosova lieferten im Yusuf Sönmez und Moshe Harel. Auf den Prozess darf man gespannt sein. Angeblich wurde gegen Yusuf Sönmez und Moshe Harel ein internationaler Haftbefehl erlassen. Der Fall zeigt auch wohin die Privatisierung gerade auch im Gesundheitswesen geführt hat.In Prishtina gibt es eine Menge Privatkliniken. Die Gesundheit der Menschen Kosovas ist eine kostenpflichtige Ware geworden. Die Meisten Menschen können sich Gesundheit nicht mehr leisten. Letzteres verteidigt die EULEX vehement. Im Fall Medicus bekämpft sie nur bizarre und barbarische Formen dieser Entwicklung.

Zunge raus Zunge raus Zunge raus 

Um den Arzt Lutfi Dervishi (verwandt mit dem Minister Ilir Meta natürlich), dem Ex-Direktor des Gesundheits Ministerium: Ilir Rrecaj und um den Israeli Moshe Harel, wird nun gegen 7 Personen im Kosovo Anklage gemacht, wegen Organ Handel, wobei die Opfer auch noch mit falschen Versprechungen in die Mafia Republik Kosovo gelockt wurden.
Deshalb musste schon der frühere Gesundheits Minister Alush Gashi gehen, aus der berüchtigten Verbrecher Clan Familie der Gashi’s, die auch mit dem korrupten Michael Steinmeier verwandt ist, weil man erfolgreiche eine junge Frau auf den Profil Neurothiker ansetzte.

Update on Medicus case 12 November , 2010 EULEX can confirm that indictments relating to the ‘Medicus’ case is currently before the District Court of Pristina awaiting the confirmation hearing. EULEX makes the following comments: The Indictments have been filed on 15th and 20th October 2010, respectively. Five persons have been charged with offences of trafficking in human organs, organised crime and abusing official authority and two are charged with unlawful exercise of medical activities. The defendants include a number of doctors and one individual who previously worked at a senior level in the Ministry of Health. The Kosovo Special Prosecution Office (SPRK) has filed an application with the court to join these two indictments. This case concerns, the international trafficking of organs at the ‘Medicus’ clinic in Pristina. The ‘donors’ and recipients of the organs were of different nationalities. Two more suspects are the subject of Interpol arrest warrants. The case was initiated by Kosovo and UNMIK police officers in November 2008. EULEX Executive Police officers continued the investigation under the supervision of SPRK. EULEX judges have been assigned to the case. EULEX

Sipas tij, viktimave u ishin premtuar deri 20 mijë dollarë, ndërsa nga pranuesit e organeve është kërkuar të paguajnë prej 80 mijë euro deri në 100 mijë euro.

Sipas aktakuzës, viktimat kanë ardhur nga Moldavia, Kazakistani, Rusia e Turqia dhe kanë jetuar në “varfëri të skajshme apo me shqetësime akute financiare”.

    CANBERRA — Australian analyst Whit Mason says that CoE investigator Dick Marty’s report shows that the highest Priština officials were above the law thanks to the U.S.

    According to the BBC, Mason said that the U.S. did not consciously support the crimes in Kosovo and did not wish to see it remain a ‚banditocracy,‘ but it was what their policy in Kosovo led to, by trying to establish stability without changing the situation in the field.

    “Since the very beginning, the public was under the impression that ethnic Albanians are the victims, and that all those who fought to free ethnic Albanians were innocent and therefore did not do things which we now know they did,” the analyst with the Australian Institute of International Affairs stressed.

    He said it was exceptionally difficult to carry out criminal proceedings in Kosovo, as the foreign public was not well acquainted with that environment, and added that it was very difficult to protect witnesses in Kosovo, because it was a small territory where everyone knew each other.

    WASHINGTON — Former U.S. Balkans envoy Robert Gelbard says that the Marty report on Kosovo organ trafficking „must be investigated because the accusations are very serious“.

    The Council of Europe rapporteur’s document said the Kosovo Albanian KLA kidnapped and murdering Serb civilians in the province for their body parts in 1999 and 2000.

    Gelbard said he believed that the accusations naming ex-KLA and current Kosovo PM Hashim Thaci as the leader of the group which traded in human organs were „not related to the issue of the Kosovo independence“.

    „The accusations against Hashim Thaci, stated in the CoE rapporteur Dick Marty’s report are extremely important and so serious that an investigation about that must be conducted,“ said Gelbard for Voice of America.

    He went on to say that the Swiss senator, who brought to light illegal CIA prisons in one of his previous investigations, was „prone to sensationalism“, but that Marty’s report nevertheless contained „serious accusations that must be investigated“. …

    US Prosecutor to Lead Organ Trafficking Investigation

    John Clint Williamson has been appointed as the lead prosecutor for an investigation into allegations of organ trafficking by the Kosovo Liberation Army in northern Albania.
    Petrit Collaku and Michael Montgomery

    Williamson, who played a key role in bringing indictments against Slobodan Milosevic, will serve as the lead prosecutor in a seven-member task force headquartered in Brussels but operating under the jurisdiction of the EU’s rule of law mission to Kosovo, diplomats said on Monday.

    His task force will probe the Council of Europe’s 2010 report which alleged that a criminal network with links to Kosovo’s incumbent Prime Minister Hashim Thaci executed kidnapped civilians and sold their organs after the 1999 Kosovo war.

    The report, headed by human rights investigator Dick Marty, claimed that “numerous concrete and convergent indicators confirm that some Serbians and some Albanian Kosovars were held prisoner in secret places of detention under KLA control in northern Albania and were subjected to inhuman and degrading treatment, before ultimately disappearing.”

    Marty’s findings corroborated allegations raised in a 2009 investigation by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, Center for Investigative Reporting and the BBC.

    Thaci has denied the allegations and pledged to work with the investigators.

    Williamson has extensive experience investigating and prosecuting complex criminal cases including war crimes. He was a prosecutor for the U.S. Justice Department and served as a trial attorney for seven years at the U.N. war crimes tribunal in The Hague.

    During the Bush administration, Williamson served as Ambassador-at-large for War Crimes Issues. He is currently a Special Expert on war crimes for the United Nations Secretary-General.

    The decision to appoint Williamson signals strong U.S. backing for the probe and follows months of intensive negotiations between the EU and Dick Marty.

    Fred Abrahams of Human Rights Watch said the appointment of Williamson was a „welcome sign that the EU and US government are taking this investigation seriously.“

    „The key to the investigation is now witness protection, and western governments must step up to provide the financial and logistical support to make sure those people with information about serious crimes feel safe. That includes accepting resettlements of witnesses and, if necessary, their families,“ he said.

    EULEX is the European Union’s rule of law mission in Kosovo. It was established in 2008 and is the largest civilian crisis management mission in history. More than 2,000 international police officers, judges and prosecutors are supported by approximately 1,200 local staff. Its aim is to help Kosovo’s authorities to develop independent and multi-ethnic justice, police and customs services.
