Austria, Macedonia nab 98 in drug bust

Mazedonien: Veles – Stadt der Drogen

 

 

Im Januar wurde in Wien ein 16-köpfiger Dealerring zerschlagen. Die Bande stammt aus Mazedonien. Österreichische und deutsche Drogenfahnder wissen: Der Drogenhandel über die Balkanroute ist fest in mazedonischer Hand. Organisiert und kontrolliert wird der Schmuggel über diverse Internetshops in Veles. In der 55.000 Einwohner-Stadt liegt die Industrie am Boden, die Arbeitslosigkeit beträgt 50 Prozent. In den Drogenbanden verdienen  die Jugendlichen bis zu 800 Euro am Tag – kein Wunder, dass die Banden keine Nachwuchsprobleme haben.http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,4061813,00.html

Opium poppy oozes sap that will later be harvested for the production of Heroin.

Nearly 100 people suspected of involvement in a Macedonian-led heroin trafficking ring, called the „Frankfurt Mafia,“ have been arrested in Austria and Macedonia.

Austrian police said they had arrested 69 people in Vienna while police in Macedonia made 29 arrests in connection with the same ring.

Austria’s Federal Office of Criminal Investigations described the operation as one of the biggest in Europe against organized crime, namely drug trafficking, and said it involved dozens of raids.

The ring allegedly smuggled drugs into Austria and Germany via various channels.

Six of the detained in Macedonia are said to be organizers of the ring.

A large amount of money and drugs was found in searches of homes and houses of the members, according to Macedonian police.

A number of the detainees also owned apartments in Vienna and Frankfurt which were allegedly used for distribution of heroin to lower-level dealers.

Macedonia and other Balkan states have long been favored routes for traffickers to transport heroin into the European Union.

Austrian and Macedonian officials are expected to disclose details of the arrests at a joint news conference later Thursday.
