Der britische Guardian hat eine interaktive Weltkarte kreiert, deren Quelle vom Auswärtigen Amt Großbritannien ist, die die Länder zeigt wo man im Moment lieber nicht einreisen sollte. So sollten Touristen Beispielweise nicht nur Länder wie Libyen, Irak oder Somalia bereisen sondern auch Länder meiden, die nicht so in der Presse und im Blickpunkt irgendwelcher Nachrichten sind. Da wäre zum Beispiel Länder wie Albanien, Philippinen, Kenia, Venezuela und Mexiko zu erwähnen, die der Guardian und die britischen Behörden als kritisch einstufen.
Einreisewarnungen gibt es auch für Thailand. Dafür nicht für Bahrain und Sudan.
Kenia, ist auch immer lustig: Da haben Deutschen Steuerzahler Milliarden verpulvert, wie die GTZ und KfW.
The international investigative firm Kroll associates produced at least four reports on high level Kenyan corruption after first term of the Kibaki government. A draft version of one of the reports The looting of Kenya, was previously published by WikiLeaks. The reports were given to selected members of President Kibaki’s cabinet at the time and are likely still held by http://www.kroll.com.uk/, notably lead investigator Andrew Marshall.
The election of Behgjet Pacolli as President of Kosovo has been ruled unconstitutional, throwing the country into a fresh institutional crisis.
PristinaKosovos Constitutional Court ruled on Monday that the vote which led to Pacolli becoming President on February 22 was in breach of the constitution.
Opposition parties Democratic League of Kosovo, LDK, and Alliance for the Future of Kosovo, AAK, submitted a complaint to the court following the vote, arguing that parliament did not have a quorum for the first two rounds of presidential votes, and that a break between the second and third round was illegal.
Pacolli failed to receive the necessary two-thirds majority in the first two rounds and just 67 of the 120 MPs were present in the chamber after the opposition walked out before the first vote began.
In the last, and final, round, which requires a simple majority, Pacolli received 61 votes, but observers, opposition MPs and the parliamentary speaker, Jakup Krasniqi, said that a pause between the two votes had been unconstitutional.
In an announcement issued by the court on Monday, it said that the vote had been in breach of the constitution, although did not specify how. The court said that the full judgment will be made available to the parties.
Billionaire businessman Pacolli is now likely to face a revote in parliament.
Pacolli, leader of the New Kosovo Alliance, AKR, secured the post of president after his party agreed to form a coalition with the dominant Democratic Party of Kosovo, PDK, of Prime Minister Hashim Thaci.
The coalition negotiations followed Decembers disputed, extraordinary general elections, which had been sparked by last summers Constitutional Court decision that the last president, Fatmir Sejdiu, could not also perform the role of head of his party, the LDK

Präsidentenwahl war verfassungswidrig
28. März 2011, 17:53
Verfassungsgericht gibt Opposition Recht – Konsequenzen unklar
Pristina – Die kosovarische Präsidentenwahl im vergangenen Monat war verfassungswidrig. Das Verfassungsgericht in Pristina gab am heutigen Montagnachmittag einer Beschwerde der Opposition gegen die Wahl von Behgjet Pacolli zum Staatspräsidenten Recht. Zwei Oppositionsparteien hatten kritisiert, dass in den ersten beiden Wahlgängen das Anwesenheitsquorum von 80 der 120 Abgeordneten nicht erreicht worden sei. Die Opposition hatte die Wahl durch einen Boykott zu verhindern versucht.
Es war zunächst unklar, ob der Höchstrichterspruch eine automatische Demission Pacollis zur Folge hat. Das Verfassungsgericht hatte schon im Vorjahr eine monatelange Regierungskrise ausgelöst, als es die Parteifunktion des damaligen Präsidenten Fatmir Sejdiu als unvereinbar mit dem Grundgesetz qualifizierte

We think this story is huge. Finally some people might begin to really understand the scope of organized crime.
Kosovo is just a multi-crimininal, poli-functional space. And this space is being used by Washington and by Europe for two things. Mainly it creates a highly criminal mafia environment for terror management. There have been, including Osama bin Laden, many known terrorists flown by American help into this area, and this is a training ground unto today for al Qaeda actions.

PRISTINA, Kosovo Its known as K-SHIK, an Albanian-language acronym for Kosovos National Intelligence Service, and it has always operated in the shadows of Kosovos darkest corners.
That is, until now. GlobalPost has interviewed a key informant in a criminal investigation into alleged K-SHIK assasinations as well as several victims of alleged K-SHIK intimidation tactics. In a series of extraordinarily candid interviews, these sources have come forward to shed new light on U.S. support of K-SHIKs operations in Kosovo and K-SHIKs alleged history of targeting political opponents for intimidation and allegedly murder.
Setting up a headquarters here in Kosovos capital in the aftermath of the 1999 war, the notorious intelligence agency became an extra-legal entity that was at first under the command of the victorious and U.S.-allied guerrilla movement, the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).
Later it was directed by the Democratic Party of Kosovo, American and Kosovar sources say. The partys leader is the prime minister, Hashim Thaci, who was recently elected to a second term and who continues to receive support from the highest levels of power in Washington.
Today, there is no longer a physical headquarters and officially the intelligence service does not exist, according to the man who headed up the agency for nine years. But sources connected to SHIK, as it is most commonly known, maintain that it remains active in enforcing the political status quo through fear and intimidation.
The United States and other NATO countries who fought to oust Yugoslav forces from Kosovo in 1999 provided support for SHIK, according to the intelligence services own former chief.
The former head of the intelligence service, Kadri Veseli, a key ally of Thaci, revealed in an exclusive interview with GlobalPost that he received U.S. support, saying, We had a lot of partners 25 intelligence services . The U.S., they help us a lot.
Veseli denies that SHIK carried out systematic political killings, but he says that the foreign intelligence services assisted SHIK in every way. He refused to discuss specifics of how the organization operated.
A half dozen sources, including another former SHIK operative, a former KLA fundraiser, a Western diplomat with knowledge of the region and a Kosovar political analyst, confirmed that the United States has supported SHIK, which was never formally overseen by a government or international body.
The former hitman
In a house heavily guarded by NATO troops, the former self-proclaimed SHIK hitman, Nazim Bllaca, told GlobalPost that SHIK orchestrated a campaign of political murder after the 1999 war ended. During that period, he said, hundreds of minority Kosovar Serbs and Kosovar Albanians suspected of collaborating with Slobodan Milosevics forces or being members of a party opposed to the victorious KLA were killed. It is unknown how many of these alleged murders prosecutors in Kosovo believe were carried out by SHIK, but since talking to GlobalPost, Bllaca has agreed to testify in another trial that began in mid-March of two former KLA soldiers with whom he has told prosecutors he killed an Albanian man in June 1999.
The NATO troops outside Bllacas door were there to protect him, he explained, from possible assassins trying to silence him as he has come forward to provide testimony against SHIK.
I was part of a criminal and illegal organization called SHIK, Bllaca said. I am the author of one killing and I assisted in many others . Personally, my group and I were working on collaborators and political killings.
Two Kosovo Albanian politicians, one a former deputy prime minster, backed up the claims of the self-proclaimed hitman, saying that agents of the intelligence service tried to kill them. Bllaca said it was, in fact, his team that tried to kill the two men.
Prosecutors at EULEX, a mission of the European Union that works with Kosovo officials on enforcing the rule of law, are preparing Bllacas indictment on charges of murder, attempted murder and involvement in organized crime, according to EULEX documents seen by GlobalPost, and according to Bllaca himself, who is cooperating with EULEX prosecutors. Bllaca has told prosecutors that a senior former KLA official ― a close ally of Thaci named Azem Syla ― ordered him to do the killings. EULEX prosecutors declined to say whether they planned to indict anyone else connected to the murders.
My goal is to shed light on all the killings in Kosovo, Bllaca said.
Veseli denied that he or SHIK had ever been involved in murder or any crime. Nazim Bllaca was never part of SHIK, said Veseli, 43, during a more than two-hour interview in a restaurant in Pristina. We were never in touch with him.
Neither Veseli nor Thaci has been charged in a criminal case.
The U.S. ambassador to Kosovo, Christopher Dell, declined repeated requests for an interview, as did officials at the State Department in Washington. They also declined to respond to written questions.
Most people who spoke to GlobalPost about SHIK, its activities and its ties to the U.S. government spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to face repercussions.
It was sponsored by the CIA, said a former senior U.S. official in Kosovo, who believes that SHIK turned into an organized crime organization. At the beginning there were about 16 chosen by hand ― trained, equipped and outfitted and doing good things but what it turned into was a method to maintain control of the crime and the politics in Kosovo.
The former American official said SHIK was still supported by the United States and is stronger now than its ever been, quite frankly.
The U.S. has been involved in training both SHIK and Kosovos security structures, the Western diplomat with knowledge of the region said.
A former SHIK operative who no longer lives in Kosovo confirmed that he had been trained in the United States and Germany by American intelligence officials.
[Veseli] had direct links with the American and English intelligence, said Florin Krasniqi, a former KLA fundraiser and now a member of the Kosovo parliament. Anything Americans and English wants, he gave them, on a plate Kadri Veseli was financed, supported, supplied by these agencies.
Veseli was friendly enough with U.S. officials to be invited to at least one, possibly more, Fourth of July barbecue celebrations at the U.S. Embassy in Pristina, according to three sources, including one who saw him at the celebration. Veseli did not dispute that he attended Fourth of July celebrations at the embassy, although he would not directly confirm his presence there.
There is strong indication that American officials knew of the suspicions of SHIKs alleged involvement in targeting political opponents, even as the United States and other NATO countries were providing support for SHIK.
An intelligence report dated 2004 notes that Thaci associate and former KLA commander Xhavit Haliti with Kadri SALI VESELI, chief of KshiK prepared a Black List of moderate politicians who were intimidated by KshiK and PDK supporters. It is not known who in the American government has seen the report but the well-informed Western diplomat confirmed that officials in Washington had seen the report. (The report is marked Secret Rel USA KFOR and NATO, which is standard Pentagon code for Secret Releasable to the United States and NATO. KFOR is the NATO force in Kosovo.)
The same intelligence report states: KShiK has strong links with a number of Kosovar criminal organisations and derives much of their funding from illegal activity KShiK also uses intimidation tactics to obtain funding from companies.
Another intelligence report, this one authored by the German intelligence agency, the BND, in 2005 states, in German: The SHIK developed its present form in the second half of 1999 in PRISTINA on THACI’s initiative. THACI and [former KLA leader and prime minister Ramush] HARADINAJ, among others, used it to recruit suitable candidates for the Kosovar police service and the TMK [the Kosovo Protection Corps, an emergency response force comprised mainly of former KLA soldiers]. In reality, the service is primarily involved in spying activities, intimidation, and physically eliminating democratic forces.
In accusing Syla and SHIK ― and by implication, Thaci and Veseli ― of complicity in the political murders he has confessed to, Bllaca is striking at the heart of Kosovos power structure and reputation. There are no more powerful political figures in Kosovo than Thaci, a close American ally who has been received at the White House and has hosted Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Pristina.
If Bllaca is convicted, he will likely go to prison for many years. He nevertheless seemed remarkably upbeat. He was clean shaven, had a new haircut and joked with the Italian soldiers guarding him. His motives are hard to fathom.
If he is driven by his guilt at killing a man then his relaxed, quick-wittedness entirely masks a tormented soul. Some analysts have guessed that Bllaca is driven by fear, rather than guilt, and decided that the only way to save his own life was to turn himself in and seek a plea agreement. Indeed, in the interview with GlobalPost, he spoke of a falling-out with SHIK several years ago and how he believes there is now a price of 100,000 euros on his head.
Veseli, one of Bllacas targets, believes that Bllaca………….
Web-faqja autoritative e lajmeve nga Bostoni i SHBA-së, Global Post në një shkrim të gjatë me titullin Mafia e Kosovës vrasje dhe frikësim, fokusohet në aktivitetet e SHIK-ut, duke thënë se kjo organizatë gjatë gjithë kohës ka marrë përkrahje të fortë nga Uashingtoni.
Menjëherë pas luftës së vitit 1999, agjencia famëkeqe e inteligjencës u bë një entitet jashtëligjor që fillimisht ishte nën komandën e lëvizjes guerile fitimtare UÇK që kishte përkrahjen e SHBA-së. Më pas u udhëhoq nga PDK-ja thonë burime amerikane dhe kosovare. Lideri i partisë është Hashim Thaçi, që fitoi së fundi mandatin e dytë në pushtet, dhe që ka përkrahjen e nivelit më të lartë në Uashington.
Sot, SHIK-u nuk ka zyre dhe zyrtarisht nuk ekziston, sipas njeriut që e ka udhëhequr për 9 vjet. Por, burimet e lidhura me SHIK-un, thonë se ai mbetet aktiv për të mbajtur status-quon nëpërmjet frikësimit dhe shantazhit, shkruan gazetari Matthew McAllaster, raporton Indeksonline.
Vetë udhëheqësi i SHIK thotë se ka pasur mbështetjen e SHBA-së, diçka që konfirmohet edhe nga një ish-pjesëtar i SHIK-ut, një ish-mbledhës i fondeve për luftën, një diplomat ndërkombëtar dhe një analist politik.
Global Post ka intervistuar Nazim Bllacën që thotë se ka vrarë për SHIK-un. Kjo gazetë ka intervistuar edhe Adem Salihajn dhe Agim Veliun, që kanë thënë se SHIK-u ka bërë atentate ndaj tyre, sikurse edhe Drita Kllokoqin, burri i së cilës u vra nga Nazim Bllaca, si dhe vetë kreun e SHIK-ut, Kadri Veselin.
Ky i fundit e pranon ndihmën e SHBA-së, dhe në mënyrë indirekte pranon se ka marrë pjesë në secilin manifestim të organizuar nga Ambasada e SHBA-së për nder të 4 korrikut Ditës së Pavarësisë së Amerikës.
Shumica e njerëzve që folën me GlobalPost për SHIK-un, aktivitetin e tij dhe lidhjet me SHBA-në, kanë folur në kushte anonimiteti, sepse kanë frikë për jetën e tyre.
U sponsorua nga CIA, tha një ish-zyrtar i lartë amerikan në Kosovë, që beson se SHIK-u u kthye në një organizatë të krimit të organizuar. Në fillim ishin nja 16 persona të përzgjedhur mirë dhe të trajnuar për të bërë gjëra të mira por u shndërrua në organizatë që kontrollon krimin dhe politikën e Kosovës, thotë zyrtari amerikan.
Sipas tij, SHIK-u ende mbështetet nga SHBA-ja, dhe atë më shumë se kurrë tash.
Një ish-pjesëtar i SHIK-ut që nuk jeton më në Kosovë thotë se anëtarët e tij janë trajnuar në SHBA dhe në Gjermani, nga zyrtarë amerikanë të inteligjencës.
In 1999, the United States and NATO fought a war against ethnic cleansing in Kosovo by forces of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. On the ground, a guerrilla group of Kosovar Albanians called the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) allied with the United States and NATO in the war against the Yugoslav forces, led by Slobodan Milosevic. International support for the KLA in the nearly three-month campaign was strong. The war became cast as a battle for human rights and international order. At the end of the fighting, on June 10, 1999, then-U.S. President Bill Clinton, winding up a presidency tainted by American passivity during the slaughters in Bosnia and Rwanda, proudly proclaimed: Because of our resolve, the 20th century is ending, not with helpless indignation, but with a hopeful affirmation of human dignity and human rights for the 21st century. For in Kosovo we did the right thing. We did it the right way. And we will finish the job. Twelve years later, few would argue that the war was not justified. But the U.S.-backed KLA leaders who went on to be elected to run Kosovo are now being investigated for operating what amounts to an organized crime syndicate with allegations of murder as well as widespread trafficking of women, narcotics and even human organs. And, as a GlobalPost investigation has found, American and NATO officials had evidence of the criminal allegations all along.
Die NATO läuft Amok, seitdem „secret“ Dokumente über die Partnerschaft mit den Top Verbrecher und Todesschwadronen des Hasim Thaci und Xhavit Halili, veröffentlicht werden
Captain Dr. Hans-Dieter Wichter, German Navy, Public Affairs Adviser to COM KFOR läuft Amok, weil die engste Partnerschaft mit dem Verbrecher Kartell der NATO und Hashim Thaci, durch Weitergabe an die Presse, nun veröffentlicht werden.

Hashim Thaci, Xhavit Halili, waren aktiver Bestandteil, der Plünderungen und Staats Zerstörung von Albanien in 1997, wo die Hintermänner, direkt auch aus den USA kamen (rund um den AACL.com und CIA Verbrecher Kartellen des Josef Limprecht -traf sich mit Azem Hajdari i Sarande in 1997) um das Hotel „Florida“ bei Durres, welche im Chaos, wie die Salih Berisha Leute, Waffen und Vermögen stehlen wollten.Alles der NATO und Co. damals bekannt.
Ebenso der Todesschwadronen, gegen UCK Konkurrenten in Albanien, ab September 1998.
Der Leiter des Militär Krankenhauses Tirana damals, weil ein Stockwerk, komplett der UCK übergeben wurde und wo niemand Zutritt hatte, noch Kontrolle, was dort geschah!

Die Kindes Entführer und Verbrecher Gestalten der UCK, lungerten damals vor allem auch im Rogner Hotel herum, wo dann oft die US Botschafterin Mariso Lino auftauchte.

PRISTINA, Kosovo The man in the black leather jacket preferred to speak about his past in the security of a car parked in a distant, rural part of Kosovo.
The big guys dont take a cut in this business they run it, said the man, who gave his name as Luan and acknowledged that he previously made his living from trafficking women and girls into Kosovo against their will so that they could be forced to have sex with paying customers. The system is highly organized and theres no police or anything to stop it. Everything is corruption from top to bottom. Every day, an enterprise of trafficking women thrives in this country.
In the aftermath of the U.S.-led war in Kosovo in 1999, this nascent democracy, born of an international effort to protect human rights, has become a hub of the global trade in human beings, according to human rights investigators who monitor human trafficking……………….

>Vor genau 12 Jahren wurde das unsichtbare F-117 abgeschossen Oberst Zoltan Dani angeführt.
Torte mit Schleudersitz
Von Flottau, Renate
Global Village: Wie ein serbischer Bäcker seinen größten Triumph verarbeitet
Der Teigfladen wirbelt in die Höhe, kreist in der Luft und wird von flinken Händen wieder aufgefangen. Bäcker Zoltan Dani beherrscht sein Handwerk. Aus einer weißgefliesten kleinen Backstube im Hinterhof seines Elternhauses in Kovin, etwa 35 Kilometer östlich von Belgrad, beliefert er seine Kunden. In dem kleinen Städtchen mit den blitzsauberen Straßen und schnurgeraden Kastanienalleen wird fast nur Ungarisch gesprochen. Hier gehören neun von zehn Einwohnern der ungarischen Minderheit an, auch Bäcker Dani.
Marija, die Gehilfin, hat am Telefon eine Sonderbestellung angenommen. „Eine F-117A-Torte bis Samstag“, ruft sie dem Chef zu. „Da feiert wohl mal wieder ein General seinen Geburtstag“, lacht Dani und packt sich einen Mehlsack auf die Schulter, „schließlich bin ich Spezialist für Jagdbomber vom Typ F-117A.“
Das stimmt, aber dass der ehemalige Kommandeur einer Luftabwehrbatterie der serbischen Armee sich eines Tages seinen Lebensunterhalt damit verdient, dass er den geheimnisumwitterten „Stealth“-Jet der U. S. Air Force als Torte nachbackt und mit Schokoladenguss überzieht, hätte Dani sich nicht in seinen schlimmsten Alpträumen vorstellen können.
Damals, bei Belgrads Luftabwehr, galt er als ausgefuchster Tüftler am Computer und war gut in seinem Job. Am 27. März 1999, während der Bombardierung Jugoslawiens durch die Nato, hat er dann bewiesen, dass die angeblich von keinem Radar zu erfassenden unsichtbaren „Stealthbomber“ eben doch verwundbar waren und sogar abgeschossen werden konnten. Das war die Sternstunde im Leben von Zoltan Dani, und die Erinnerung daran genießt er noch heute.
>How to Take Down an F-117
November 21, 2005: The Serbian battery commander, whose missiles downed an American F-16, and, most impressively, an F-117, in 1999, has retired, as a colonel, and revealed many of the techniques he used to achieve all this. Colonel Dani Zoltan, in 1999, commanded the 3rd battery of the 250th Missile Brigade. He had search and control radars, as well as a TV tracking unit. The battery had four quad launchers for the 21 foot long, 880 pound SA-3 missiles. The SA-3 entered service in 1961 and, while it had undergone some upgrades, was considered a minor threat to NATO aircraft. Zoltan was an example of how an imaginative and energetic leader can make a big difference. While Zoltan’s peers and superiors were pretty demoralized with the electronic countermeasures NATO (especially American) aircraft used to support their bombing missions, he believed he could still turn his ancient missiles into lethal weapons. The list of measures he took, and the results he got, should be warning to any who believe that superior
alone will provide a decisive edge in combat. People still make a big difference. In addition to shooting down two aircraft, Zoltan’s battery caused dozens of others to abort their bombing missions to escape his unexpectedly accurate missiles. This is how he did it.
— Zoltan had about 200 troops under his command. He got to know them well, trained hard and made sure everyone could do what was expected of them. This level of quality leadership was essential, for Zoltan’s achievements were a group effort.
— Zoltan used a lot of effective techniques that American air defense experts expected, but did not expect to encounter because of poor leadership by the enemy. For example, Zoltan knew that his major foe was HARM (anti-radar) missiles and electronic detection systems used by the Americans, as well as smart bombs from aircraft who had spotted him. To get around this, he used landlines for all his communications (no cell phones or radio). This was more of a hassle, often requiring him to use messengers on foot or in cars. But it meant the American intel people overhead were never sure where he was.
— His radars and missile launchers were moved frequently, meaning that some of his people were always busy looking for new sites to set up in, or setting up or taking down the equipment. His battery traveled over 100,000 kilometers during the 78 day NATO bombing campaign, just to avoid getting hit. They did, and his troops knew all that effort was worth the effort.
— The Serbs had spies outside the Italian airbase most of the bombers operated from. When the bombers took off, the information on what aircraft they, and how many, quickly made it to Zoltan and the other battery commanders.
— Zoltan studied all the information he could get on American stealth technology, and the F-117. There was a lot of unclassified data, and speculation, out there. He developed some ideas on how to beat stealth, based on the fact that the technology didn’t make the F-117 invisible to radar, just very to get, and keep, a good idea of exactly where the aircraft was. Zoltan figured out how to tweak his radars to get a better lock on stealth type targets. This has not been discussed openly.
— The Serbs also set up a system of human observers, who would report on sightings of bombers entering Serbia, and track their progress.
— The spies and observers enabled Zoltan to keep his radars on for a minimal amount of time. This made it difficult for the American SEAD (Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses) to use their HARM missiles (that homed in on radar transmissions.) Zoltan never lost a radar to a HARM missile.
— Zoltan used the human spotters and brief use of radar, with short range shots at American bombers. The SA-3 was guided from the ground, so you had to use surprise to get an accurate shot in before the target used jamming and evasive maneuvers to make the missile miss. The F-117 he shot down was only 13 kilometers away.
Zoltan got some help from his enemies. The NATO commanders often sent their bombers in along the same routes, and didn’t make a big effort to find out if hotshots like Zoltan were down there, and do something about it. Never underestimate your enemy.
Was Chinas Stealth Tech Made in America?
4:38:55 PM, Saturday, February 05, 2011
On March 27, 1999, during the height of NATOs air war on Serbia, a very smart and very lucky Serbian air-defense commander achieved the seemingly impossible. Firing three 1960s-vintage SA-3 missiles, Col. Zoltan Dani managed to shoot down an attacking U.S. Air Force F-117 stealth fighter-bomber piloted by Lt. Col. Dale Zelko. NATO commanders had been sending the alliances planes, including the stealth attackers, into Serbia along predictable routes, allowing Dani to carefully plan his missile ambush.
A fast-acting team of Air Force A-10 attack planes and helicopters retrieved Zelko intact, but not so the wreckage of the colonels top-secret jet, one of the technological stars of the 1991 Gulf War. The destroyed F-117s left wing, canopy and ejection seat plus Zelkos helmet wound up in a Belgrade aviation museum, but most of the rest of the 15-ton jet was gathered up by farmers living around the crash site.
Twelve years later, some of those components may have finally surfaced in the design of Chinas new J-20 stealth fighter.

Totally disgusting. The middle east demonstrating how great a people they are once again. Now I guess we should give them all green cards next so they can „have a better life“ in another country. Hopefully they’ll move next door to a bleeding heart & share casserole dishes, and pleasantries.

Albaniens Wirtschaft leidet weiter unter Clanstrukturen, Unterentwicklung und den Folgen einer verfehlten Privatisierungspolitik (01. August 2010)
Zum Attentat, dem Dritten Attentat, auf den Mafiosi Tan Lepri, oder Dritan Avllaj! Natürlich auch mit Hashim Thaci, eng verbunden, denn in Geschäften ist man auch mit der Serben- und Kosovo Mafia, eine Einheit.
lt. eigener Aussage, parkte er vor der PDIU Partei Zentrale in Tirana, wobei die PDIU, eine reine Mafia Partei ist, was ja länger schon bekannt ist, wo man die Partei Spitze mit Dashemir Tahiri (Chef der berüchtigten Zani Causi Mord Bande, Namen geändert, weil er auf der Interpol Liste seit 1991 steht) auch als Jo Biden und CIA Vertretung in Albanien besser betrachten sollte u.a. für den Drogen schmuggel.

Zbardhet dëshmia e biznesmenit Dritan Avllaj, i njohur ndryshe si Tan Lepri, i cili mundi ti shpëtonte për mrekulli një atentati të sofistikuar. Pak orë pasi mjekët i kanë hequr plumbin nga shpatulla e djathtë, Tan Lepri është rrëfyer për prokurorët duke treguar të gjitha detajet e ngjarjes kriminale, në shënjestër të së cilës ishte vetë ai. Seanca e pyetjeve është zhvilluar në ambientet e Spitalit Ushtarak në orët e para të mëngjesit të së premtes, kur nuk kishin kaluar shtatë orë nga momenti kur dy persona të cilët ecnin me një motor, i bënë pritë dhe qëlluan 40-vjeçarin. Biznesmeni Avllaj nuk ka drejtuar gishtin ndaj askujt për ta akuzuar si atentatorin e tij. Kam arritur të dalloj që ishin dy persona që ecnin me një motor. Në kokë kishin skafandër. Drejtuan armën dhe qëlluan në drejtim të xhamit të pasmë të makinës, ku unë ndodhesha i ulur. Nuk kam arritur ti njoh, pasi u shtriva në sedilje tu shpëtoja plumbave. Shoferi shtoi shpejtësinë e makinës dhe arritëm tia dilnim mbanë, – është shprehur Avllaj. Njeriu i akuzuar nga Partia Demokratike për afera korruptive, nuk ka pranuar në asnjë moment të ketë përplasje apo konflikte me askënd. Nuk kam asnjë ide se kush mund të ketë qëlluar mbi mua, as se cilat janë motivet që i kanë shtyrë. Unë nuk kam përplasje me askënd. Vazhdoj punën duke menaxhuar bizneset e mia, – u ka thënë Avllaj hetuesve, edhe pse emri i tij muajt e fundit është bërë një pjesë e pandashme e fjalorit politik të maxhorancës. Rrëfimi i biznesmenit
Dritan Avllaj nuk ndihej fort i qetë kur zyrtarë të policisë dhe prokurorë zbarkuan në Spitalin Ushtarak për të marrë dëshminë e tij, prej nga do të ndërtonin dhe pistat e para për atentatin që për pak sa nuk i mori jetën njeriut të fuqishëm në botën e biznesit. Avllaj, i cili njihet me nofkën Tan Lepri dhe për miqësinë e tij me kryetarin e Partisë Socialiste e njëkohësisht kreun e Bashkisë së Tiranës, Edi Rama, u është përgjigjur pyetjeve të shumta që i bëheshin nga pjesëtarët e grupit hetimor. Ai ka folur për orët e fundit para se ti bëhej atentati në rrugën Mihal Grameno në Tiranë, që për fat mundi ti mbijetonte. Ora ishte rreth 21:30. Makinën e kisha parkuar para selisë së partisë PDIU, që ndodhet në rrugën Mihal Grameno. Shoferi më priste te makina. Unë hyra dhe u ula në sediljen e pasme. Do të shkoja në një lokal ku më prisnin disa shokë. Në moment pranë makinës, në anën ku isha ulur unë është afruar një motor. Të dy personat kishin skafandër në kokë. Qëlluan disa herë dhe një plumb më kapi në shpatull, – u ka thënë hetuesve biznesmeni i përfolur për lidhjet e tij me njerëz të njohur të politikës shqiptare. Krejt shkurt dhe pa asnjë mëdyshje ai ka deklaruar se nuk ka asnjë konflikt me askënd.

Geheimdienste und Rechtsstaat Über Staatsterrorismus, Unterwanderung und Whistleblower
Ein Gespräch mit ANNIE MACHON, 8. März 2011 –
Annie Machon war Agentin des britischen Inlandsgeheimdienstes MI5. Sie begann ihre Karriere 1991 in der Abteilung für Terrorismusabwehr und politische Überwachung, nachdem sie zuvor ein Studium der klassischen Philologie an der Universität von Cambridge absolviert hatte.
Schon nach fünf Jahren quittierte sie 1996 gemeinsam mit ihrem Kollegen David Shayler den Dienst. Sie war dahintergekommen, dass der Geheimdienst an Morden beteiligt war, und ihr Ziel war es, diese Vorgänge öffentlich zu machen. Sie floh aus Großbritannien, tauchte in Frankreich im Exil unter bis sie schließlich nach Deutschland kam. Heute lebt sie in Düsseldorf als Buchautorin, Journalistin und Aktivistin. Sie nutzt ihr Wissen, um die gegenwärtige Strategie des War on Terror und die Erosion der Zivilgesellschaft zu analysieren und über die tatsächlichen Aktivitäten von Geheimdiensten zu berichten.
Ex-Agentin Annie Machon sollte im Auftrag des MI 5 politisch „Subversive“ ausforschen.
From MI6 Al Qaeda Plot to Kill Gaddafi to Spying on Domestic Dissent: An MI5 Whistle Blowers Story
The Real News Network
October 31, 2012
Annie Machon was an intelligence officer for the UKs MI5 in the 1990s, but she left after blowing the whistle on the incompetence and crimes of the British spy agencies. She is now a writer, media commentator, political campaigner, and international public speaker on a variety of intelligence-related issues. She is also the Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) in Europe.
PAUL JAY, SENIOR EDITOR, TRNN: Welcome to The Real News Network. Im Paul Jay in Baltimore.
In 1997, Annie Machon, a member of MI5 British intelligence left the intelligence agencies, blowing the whistle, alongside her partner, for what she said was corruption, incompetence, and illegality. Shes now a writer, a media commentator, a public speaker on a variety of intelligence-related issues. Shes also the director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, or LEAP, in Europe. She now joins us to tell us her story. Thanks very much for joining us, Annie.
JAY: So give us a little bit of background. How do you get into MI5 in the first place? And then what happened?
MACHON: I was recruited at the end of the Cold War. They were looking for a new generation of counterterrorism officers, moving away from the old political work theyd been doing up until that point. And they also at that point had just been put on a legal footing for the very first time in their 80-year history. So they reassured me that they had to obey the law, just like the rest of us.
JAY: What do you mean, for the first time in their history on a legal footing?
MACHON: Well, they were established in 1909, and until 1989 they didnt officially exist. There was no oversight. No member of Parliament could ever question what they got up to. They could do what they wanted. In fact, Peter Wright, the 1980s author of Spycatcher, said notably that they could bug and burgle their way around London with impunity. Soand they did.
JAY: And MI5 is the domestic service.
MACHON: Thats right, yes. And MI6 is the international service, like the CIA. And we also have a listening post as well. So we got three key.
JAY: So a domestic service above the law, not just the international service above the law, which was sort of the culture here for the longest time.
MACHON: Yeah, no, the domestic service could do what they want, and they did. In fact, they investigated almost a million U.K. citizens purely for their political activity, and not only the citizens: they also had files, secret files, on a number of government ministers in the 1990s. And they did this because it was the Labour government and some of those ministers in their youth had been involved in left-wing politics. So, yeah, it wasits a strange situation where you have the spies.
JAY: This is all justified first of all by the Second World War, and then the Cold War.
MACHON: Yes, very much so, and they got very paranoid about penetration of Soviet moles.
JAY: Well, they did such a good job kicking them out.
MACHON: Exactly, yeah, exactly. So that gave them justification to investigate what they called subversives, the political activists.
JAY: So theywith all the Soviet moles that in fact did infiltrate MI6, MI5 would have been investigating them? Or MI6 is supposed to have investigated them?
MACHON: MI5 should have been investigating them, and they failed, obviously. And, of course, all these people who were the Soviet moles were very much establishment figures. They were very posh, top-drawer. And so none of them was ever prosecuted. They were allowed to flee.
JAY: Okay. So jump us up to you get recruited. What year, and to do what?
MACHON: I actually started working there in 1991, and I left in 96, and I had three postings during that time. First of all, in fact, my very first posting was in the political section, even though they said they no longer did it. And this is iiwhen I saw these files on government ministers, because there was a general election and we had to review them. So you have a situation in a democracy where the spies have secret information on people who are supposed to be their political masters, and so its a tail-wagging-the-dog situation.
JAY: A bit of what Hoover did in the FBI here.
MACHON: Very much so. I mean, less cross-dressing, though, within MI5.
JAY: As far as you know.
MACHON: As far as we know. Then I worked against Irish terrorism for two years. And then my final posting was to international terrorism. And it was during my very first posting that I met my former partner, a man called David Shayler, who went on to become a very notorious, very well known whistleblower in the late 1990s, and we both ended up leaving and blowing the whistle.
JAY: So what happened? First of all, when does the coin drop?
MACHON: Well, the coin dropped pretty quickly, because, of course, they lied to me during recruitment, saying that they didnt do political work.
JAY: What do you mean by political work?
MACHON: Looking at subversives, people who are radical, either very left-wing [incompr.]
JAY: So investigating people simply cause of their political activities.
MACHON: Exactly. And when I say investigating, I mean incredibly invasive. So they could put bugs in their properties, they could bug their phones, they could follow them around, they could send undercover people in to report on them.
JAY: And what kind of people were they targeting?
MACHON: Oh, tiny little Trotskyist groups, things likethey were called militant tendency or Socialist Workers Party.
JAY: Why would they bother?
MACHON: Well, indeed. It was illegal to do that, because Trotskyist groups did not represent a threat to national security.
JAY: And anyonecertainly everyone on the left knew that.
MACHON: Well, quite. So this was a problem. They were shutting down the section. So at least that sort of stopped in the mid 1990s. Unfortunately, then the role of spying on left-wing groups was taken over by the secret police, who then ran undercover cops into these groups. And there was a big scandal only last year.
JAY: It sounds a bit like some of the discussions weve been having with some of your colleagues at LEAP, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, and theyre talking about how its sort of become self-generating that you need to create the problem to justify some of the jobs and some of the money. So it sounds like some of this left-wing spying is sort of like that. I mean, everybody knows its not a threat, but you keep saying it is, cause you keep getting more work out of it.
MACHON: Its jobs for the boys, very much. And as the Cold War drew to an end and the Berlin Wall came down, suddenly the MI5 was casting around for new areas of work. Thats when they focused on the IRA, the provisional IRA in Northern Ireland. They took that work off the police. And thats what I thought Id been recruited to do, to be a counterterrorism officer. And, in fact, my second posting was to that section.
And David also moved into T Branch, as it was called, and then moved into G Branch, which was international. And we saw a sort of escalation of issues that troubled us in both those sections. I mean, certainly in the Irish section, bombs that could and should have been prevented by MI5 were detonated on the U.K. mainland, killing people, and MI5 would then lie to government to cover up their mistakes.
JAY: And these were mistakes?
MACHON: They were mistakes, yes.
JAY: I mean, sometimes theres been some suggestion theyre errors of deliberate omission, that sometimes its not so bad if a bomb goes off here or there, cause it again justifies even more effort to stop such things. Any whiff of that?
MACHON: Theres certainly a whiff, yes. And, of course, when they were working against the IRA, it was very different from working against al-Qaeda, because the IRA had a system of issuing passwords, codewords before an explosion. So they were quite sophisticated in their PR offensive. They would put a bomb down and then warn the police so that nobody would get hurt, so theyd just have sort of the PR hit of the bomb detonating. So, yes, I think some of that might have happened as well.
But it was really in the third posting that we saw the major issues. There was, first of all, an illegal telephone tap on a very famous left-wing journalist in the U.K. on The Guardian newspaper. There was also the imprisoning and the conviction of two innocent people for conspiracy to bomb the Israeli embassy in 1994 in London, and MI5 had evidence that they were innocent, and still let them go ahead and be convicted.
MACHON: Why? Thats a very good question, because MI5′s assessment, after theyd looked at all the evidence around this case, was that Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, had carried out a controlled explosion outside their own embassy in order to, one, increase the security around all their interests in Londonwhich theyd been pushing for for years, and MI5 kept telling them to, you know, take a hikeand also to frame these two innocent people who were involved in Palestinian support networks in London. And that network was gaining a lot of traction politically and financially. And, of course, once you finger two innocent people, the whole network just disappeared.
JAY: So youre saying this as if you know this to be true. Has this evidence risen to the public level? Has anything happened?
MACHON: Oh, absolutely. I mean, during the whistleblowing years, this was one of the things that came out. And there was indeed an appeal for the two people in prison. And they admitted that there were documents within MI5, but they werent going to disclose them, because they didnt have to under the secrecy laws. So the two people who had to finish their sentences, they got 20 years in prison each.
JAY: They did?
MACHON: Yeah. So the judge went against all.
JAY: They did most of 20 years?
MACHON: They did most of 20 years.
JAY: Thats insane.
MACHON: It was a young woman called Samar Alami and a young man called Jawad Botmeh. And there was a huge campaign to release them and everything. It was a big, big scandal. But the judge just ignored all case law and let them rot in prison.
JAY: Alright. So was that one of the things that starts to inspire you that this isI cant live with myself doing this?
MACHON: Pretty much, yes. I mean, it was a sort of process of boiling the frog when we were in MI5. Things got worse and worse.
JAY: So whens the moment you look around and say, okay, Im turning into frogs legs?
MACHON: Well, that sort of came to a head, came to the boil in 1995, because David Shayler, my partner at the time, was the head of the living section in MI5. And he had an unusually close working relationship with his counterpart in MI6, the foreign intelligence agency. And he was briefed officially about a plot that MI6 was involved inand some of his colleagues were, too; it wasnt just David. And this was basically MI6 funding a bunch of Islamic extremist terrorists in Libya. And this group had links with al-Qaeda, which was a known terrorist group even then, which MI5 was investigating. And MI6 was funding this group. And what they were doing was helping to foment a coup against Gaddafi. So the group.
JAY: But to investigate, they just, I assume, could have phoned the CIA and asked, because the CIA had, certainly at the beginnings of al-Qaeda, at least, something to do with it.
MACHON: Absolutely, yes. I mean, you know, all the support they gave them during the Mujahideen in Afghanistan, no doubt about it. But no, MI6 always liked to talk the talk. They liked to think they were big James Bond figures. And this was an opportunity to do something, I think. And also, the quid pro quo was that if Gaddafi was toppled, this group would seize power and then would start building nice, lucrative oil contracts with British Petroleum and all the other companies. So that seemed to be what they were after.
JAY: Yeah, it worked out really well in Afghanistan.
MACHON: Yeah, I know. They never seem to learn from history. Theyre doomed to make the same mistakes again and again.
So this group was funded by MI6. And David was concerned about this and reported it all the way up the management chain, but sort of thought they wouldnt do it. MI6 always talked big and did little. But then, in early 1996, a lot of intelligence reports.
JAY: [incompr.] hes in MI5 or MI6?
MACHON: Hes in MI5 along with me. Hes the.
JAY: And you get wind of this MI6 plan.
MACHON: He is officially briefed by his counterpart in MI6 over a period of months. So this was building up for a while.
JAY: And he, up the food chain of MI5, says, are you guys aware of what MI6 is planning to do.
MACHON: Yeah, and nobody seemed bothered, partly because MI6 would [crosstalk]
JAY: So just to get clear, this is a plan to use al-Qaeda type groups in Libya to assassinate the leader of Libya.
MACHON: Yes, at a time when al-Qaeda was known to be an enemy of the West. So MI5 was investigating them; MI6 was funding them. And that was how crazy it was. Crucially, as well, this operation was illegal under U.K. law, because under the Intelligence Services Act 1994, MI6 can commit crimes abroad with legal impunity, but only if they get the prior written permission of their political master, the foreign secretary. In this case, they didnt get it, so it was illegal as well as immoral and unethical.
And in early 1996, Gaddafi was returning from Sirte, in Libya, to Tripoli in a cavalcade of cars, and an explosion occurred under one of the carsobviously, the wrong one, because Gaddafi survived. But there was a security shoot-out afterwards, and innocent bystanders were gunned down. So were looking at an illegal operation funding our terrorist enemies, which goes wrong and also kills innocent people.
JAY: Now, just to back up, MI6 doesnt have the official sanction. But is there a suggestion here this is being done without the political masters knowing?
JAY: So itsI mean, this is a kind of rogue MI6 operation.
MACHON: Yes, completely rogue and completely illegal. And yet roll forward a few years, and David has blown the whistle on this and gone to prison for it. The MI6 officers involved were never even arrested, certainly not charged or convicted. They were just protected by MI6.
JAY: Why would MI6 do something like this without the political masters knowing? I mean, how much of this goes on, do you think, where they have their kind of own agenda about how the world should look?
MACHON: Well, its very much a sort of network of old public schoolboys, so, you know, as chaps might talk casually to each other. But I think the major problem is cultural, because until 1994, MI6 had operated outside the law. It was only in 1994 the new law came in which said they should get permission to do this sort of thing. And I think by 1995 the old boys hadnt really got to grips with the fact they had to follow the law. I think it was just that simple.
I mean, its noticeable now, of course. You roll forward to 2011 and the war in Libya, the NATO invasion, and MI6 people were on the ground in Libya helping the Benghazi rebels, and most of those rebels were the very same groups that theyd been funding in 1996 secretly. This time they were funding and training and helping them overtly.
JAY: I think it is important, I think, from what I know of the Benghazi situation, that is, one segment of the rebels, cause there were a lot of people involved in that rebellion that were not al-Qaeda and not linked to MI6 or, we should add, French intelligence, cause the French were up to their eyeballs in all of this.
MACHON: Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah.
JAY: And also, just for the sake of the record, we shouldnt jump over the fact that after this 96-97 period youre talking about, Gaddafi made his grand bargain with Cheney and Bush and had kind of had his rapprochement, including with the British, and Gaddafis son was running around with British lords and Rothschilds and other people.
MACHON: Well, again, theres some interesting history there, because we know (its on the public record) that the Shayler case was one of the negotiating factors between the Gaddafi regime and the Tony Blair government, that and the Lockerbie trial, you know, the two suspects that were wanted for the trial of bombing Pan Am 103 in 1988. So we have a situation where that was one of the sort of hot potatoes that helped Gaddafi use as a lever to get a deal with Blair and come in from the cold.
JAY: Right. So lets go back to your story. So you decide youve had enough and your partner decides hes had enough. And what happens?
MACHON: Well, theres not much you can do if youre concerned about crimes inside the intelligence agencies. And in the U.K., under the Official Secrets Act, a bit like the U.S. Espionage Act, its a crime to report a crime.
JAY: Okay. You know what? Were going to stop here, and were going to do a part two of this interview.
JAY: So this is a cliffhanger. So if you want to know what happens next, youve got to watch part two of our interview with Annie Machon on The Real News Network.

Putin: Moskau unterstützt den Dialog Belgrads und Pristinas
23.03.11 Der russische Premier Wladimir Putin hat nach Gesprächen mit den höchsten Offiziellen Serbiens den Dialog Belgrads und Pristinas unterstützt und die Fortsetzung der russischen Unterstützung für Serbien angekündigt, damit dieser Prozess erfolgreich beendet werden kann. Er sagte, jeder Dialog sei besser als ein Gefecht. Nach einem Treffen mit dem Premier Serbiens, Mirko Cvetkovic, betonte er, Moskau unterstütze den Dialog und werde der serbischen Führung maximal helfen, damit der Dialog erfolgreich beendet werden kann. Er hob hervor, Russland werde ein Verbündeter Serbiens was Kosovo und Metohija angeht bleiben, und dass es in dieser Frage die UNO-Resolution 1244 als Grundlage rechnet.
Djukic Dejanovic und Putin: Freundschaftliche Beziehungen der beiden Länder
Der russische Premier Wladimir Putin hat im Gespräch mit der serbischen Parlamentspräsidentin Slavica Djukic Dejanovic und den Chefs der Abgeordnetengruppen im Parlament Serbiens den Standpunkt Moskaus geäußert, was einige wichtige Fragen der wirtschaftlichen, politischen und anderen Zusammenarbeit der beiden Länder angeht. Frau Djukic Dejanovic bedankte sich beim russischen Premier für den Besuch und hob hervor, dass die Beziehungen der beiden Länder ein Beispiel von Beziehungen zweier freundschaftlichen Länder, die einander achten und respektieren und das andere Land für einen Partner halten, egal wie groß es im wirtschaftlichen, militärischen und anderem Sinne ist, darstellen. Sie bedankte sich bei der russischen Föderation für den prinzipiellen Standpunkt, welches sie als ständiges Mitglied des Weltsicherheitsrats hat, wenn von der Erhaltung der territorialen Integrität Serbiens die Rede ist. Sie deutete auf die wirtschaftlichen Probleme Serbiens hin, fügte aber hinzu, dass Serbien dank den vielfältigen wirtschaftlichen Beziehungen mit Russland die Krise überwunden hat, und zwar mit minimalem Schaden für die Wirtschaft.
adic: Neue Perspektiven der Kooperation mit Russland eröffnet
Der Präsident Serbiens, Boris Tadic, hat nach einem Gespräch mit dem Premier Russlands Wladimir Putin, erklärt, dass die beiden Länder den höchstmöglichen Grad an Übereinstimmung haben, was internationale Politik und die bilaterale Kooperation und ihre Entwicklung angeht. Tadic hat hervorgehoben, dass Serbien und Russland in manchen Bereichen einen hohen Grad an Kooperation zu beiderseitigem Nutzen erreicht haben, dass es aber Möglichkeiten gibt, das noch zu erweitern.
Wir haben über globale und regionale Themen gesprochen, wie auch über die bilateralen Beziehungen Serbiens und Russlands, engen Beziehungen im Domain der Kultur und der Sprache, Beziehungen der beiden Völker, die seit Jahrhunderten dauern, und welche ganz sicher auch in Zukunft bestehen werden, sagte Präsident Tadic. Der russische Premier, Wladimir Putin, erklärte, Russland sei nicht wegen der Anstrebung Serbiens, EU-Mitglied zu werden, besorgt, wie auch, dass Belgrad und Moskau gemeinsam daran arbeiten werden, dass die serbische Eurointegration keinen Schaden für die russisch-serbischen Beziehungen darstellt. In Anwesenheit der Premierminister Serbiens und Russlands, Mirko Cvetkovic und Wladimir Putin wurden Abkommen über Kooperation im Tourismus, in Wissenschaft und im Landverkehr unterzeichnet.
Die Gaspipeline Südlauf wird gebaut
Die internationale Gaspipeline Südlauf wird gebaut, weil sie im Interesse Russlands und der EU ist, wurde bei der Vorstellung dieses großen energetischen Projekts in Belgrad mitgeteilt. Der Minister für Ökologie und Bergbau Oliver Dulic sagte, dass durch Serbien die größte Transitstrecke verlaufen wird, und dass Serbien in diesem Fall eine Brücke zwischen Russland und Europa ist, was die Realisierung der Pipeline angeht, und dass das auch politisches Kapital bringt. Er erinnerte daran, dass der Bau der Teilstrecke durch Serbien 700 Millionen Euro kostet, und dass ihre Kapazität 40 Milliarden m3 sein wird. Er sagte auch, ihre Länge werde 470 km sein und daran würden tausende Arbeite beteiligt sein. Der Generaldirektor des Südlaufs Marcel Kramer sagte, am wichtigsten sei es, dass Gas sicher zu seinen Verbrauchern kommt. Der Generaldirektor des Unternehmens Srbijagas Dusan Bajatovic sagte, Serbien werde der regionale Gasknotenpunkt sein.

Im Kosovo ist Telekom Austria, auch der einzige Bieter inzwischen!
Originalbild anzeigen Die Privatisierung der Post und Telekommunikation PTK ist ein fester Bestandteil des Haushaltsplanes in Kosovo. Das Präsidium des Parlaments gab bekannt, dass dieser Posten in der kommenden Woche debattiert und entschieden wird. Die PTK ist das rentabelste öffentliche Unternehmen Kosovas. In den letzten Jahren wurden die Haushaltslücken Kosovas, im wesentlichen durch die Zuschüsse der PTK gedeckt. Pro Jahr gab es Gelder für den Etat Kosovas zwischen 120 und 90 Millionen Euro. Nachdem das Verkaufsangebot ursprünglich bei mehr als 1 Milliarde Euro lag, gibt es jetzt einen Kaufpreis von 300 Millionen Euro. Die Regierung will die PTK zu 75% verschenken. Neben der Gewerkschaft bei der PTK steht die Bewegung für Selbstbestimmung LPV grundsätzlich gegen den Verkauf der PTK. Glauck Konjufca erklärte gegenüber der Presse: Der Verkauf der PTK soll den Staatshaushaltsplan decken. Über den Verkauf soll das gesamte Budget gleich mit abgesegnet werden. Die LPV lehnt sowohl den Verkauf der PTK als auch den komplett schwindligen Etatentwurf ab. Damit hat die LPV im Parlament die einzig richtige Haltung. Andere Oppositionsfraktionen wie die AAK und LDK sind nicht prinzipiell gegen den Verkauf von öffentlichen Eigentum. Im Gegenteil sie befürworten den Verkauf nur anders und transparenter. Der Verkauf der PTK hat nur den Zweck, die neue Autobahn durch Kosova zu finanzieren. Diese sogenannte Straße der Nation kostet mehr als 1. Milliarde Euro. Der Ursprungspreis lag bei 750 Millionen Euro. Die profitgierigen Konzerne Bechtel und Enka, haben den Preis drastisch erhöht und fordern nun die erste Rate ein. Ergo das Geld aus dem Verkauf der PTK wird direkt den beiden Konzernen in den Rachen geworfen. Dadurch wird Kosova, um einen weiteren Teil seines nationalen Reichtums gebracht. Einer der wichtigsten Bewerber für die PTK ist die österreichische Telekom. Sie will laut Angaben der Kleinen Zeitung aus Österreich zum absolutem Marktführer auf dem Balkan werden. Gegenwärtig ist die österreichische Telekom der letzte Bewerber für die ebenfalls rentable serbische Telekom. Der serbische Telekom soll zu 51% privatisiert werden. Serbien fordert 1,4 Milliarden, die Telekom Austria bietet aber nur 850 Millionen. Laut den Regularien für den Haushalt in Kosova soll die Privatisierungsagentur AKP in Kosova in absoluter Autonomie Verkäufe abwickeln dürfen. Dies ist absolut antidemokratisch, das Parlament und damit jegliche öffentliche Debatte über die Privatisierungen wird somit perspektivisch erstickt. Letzteres ist ein weiterer Grund den Haushalt samt Privatisierung der PTK und die neuen Haushaltsregularien prinzipiell abzulehnen. Notwendig ist , dass sich die betroffenen Arbeiter bei der PTK neuerlich erheben. Grundsätzlich ist ein Generalstreik gegen diesen Etat notwendig. Es gibt in Kosova keine Kranken und Arbeitslosenversicherung. Nach dem neuen Haushaltsentwurf soll dies so bleiben nur der nationale Reichtum wird mittels der Privatisierung verhökert.

Telekom Srbija now 100% state-owned
BELGRADE — Directors general of Greek OTE and Telekom Srbija, Michael Tsamaz and Branko Radujko, today signed a contract on repurchase of the Telekom Srbija shares.
The signing of the document, which entitles the government to full control over Serbia’s telecommunications company, was attended by Serbian President Boris Tadić and Prime Minister Mirko Cvetković.
The Greek operator will sell its 20 percent stake in Telekom back to the company, a state-owned former monopoly, for EUR 380 million, and the shares will also be transferred in the central registry on Thursday, with 80 percent of the Telekom shares in the ownership of the state and 20 percent belonging to the company itself.
Telekom signed an agreement with consortium of banks on EUR 470 million worth of loan for the purpose of repurchase of its 20 percent stake.
Out of the total amount of the loan, EUR 320 million is intended for the purchase of 20 percent of shares currently owned by Greek telecommunications company OTE, and EUR 150 million is to be set aside for refinancing of Telekom’s previous loan.
OTE and Telekom Srbija signed an agreement on repurchase of 20 percent of shares in Athens in 2011, and the Managing Board and the Association of Telekom Serbia Shareholders approved this transaction mid December.
OTE purchased its stake in Telekom in 1997, at the same time as Telecom Italia bought a 29 percent stake. The amount of the two transactions totaled 1.56 billion German marks. Telecom Italia sold its stake back to the Serbian government in 2003 for EUR 195 million, leaving OTE as the sole minority investor.
The negotiations with the Greek company started in summer 2011, following unsuccessful tender for the sale of 51 percent stake in Telekom Srbija.
