EU deported 42.600 Albanian asylum seekers in 2016
The number of Albanian asylum seekers who have been deported to their home country last year was 42.600. This is the figure that was recently published by the European Institute of Statistics (EUROSTAT) in relation to the process of the deportation of asylum seekers from its territory.“As in 2015, Albanians (42,600) topped the list of non-EU citizens returned in 2016, ahead of citizens of Ukraine (22 600), Iraq (17 100), Kosovo (13 000), Serbia (12 200) and Morocco (9 900)”, the Eurostat report says

Bulgaria’s special prosecution has pressed charges for the plunder of the Corporate Commercial Bank in 2014, listing suggestions about why the main defendant – the bank’s owner, Tsvetan Vasilev – is now in exile in Serbia.

Bulgarian prosecutors have indicted an organized crime group of 18 people over the failure of the Corporate Commercial Bank, CCB, in 2014, starting with the bank’s majority owner, Tsvetan Vassilev.

The indictment was filed with ihe Special Criminal Court in Sofia on Thursday.

Among those accused of appropriating 2.8 billion leva (around 1.4 billion euros) from the assets of the bank, which collapsed in 2014, are the former deputy governor of the Bulgarian National Bank, Tsvetan Gunev, auditors from the central bank and employees of the CCB.

“Due to the huge scope of the appropriated funds and the influence it had on the economy and society, the ‘CCB model’ constitutes … the largest economic and public ‘financial fraud’ that has occurred in modern Bulgarian history,” reads the prosecution’s 150-page resume of the indictment, published on its website.

The prosecutors note that Vasilev lives now at an unidentified address in Serbia, recalling that Bulgaria has sought his extradition multiple times under a European arrest warrant, but the “strange absence of any answer by the competent Serbian judicial authorities”.

The trial will be launched with Vasilev in absentia, therefore.

The indictment lists a number of assumed reasons why the tycoon has chosen to go into exile in Serbia, among which are his desire to buy shares in an unnamed bank in Serbia, the purchase of the Serbian Glass Factory company as well as contacts with Serbian “political circles”.

According to the prosecution, Vasilev has made payments to offshore companies “from the Serbian side” through local consultants – Nihat Korajic and Trilerium LTD.

The prosecutors have made it clear that this is only the first in a series indictments related to CCB’s collapse. Others still in progress relate to Vasilev’s alleged “funding” of politicians, journalists and media projects, media and other personal projects.

Vasilev’s private bank, Corporate Commercial Bank, collapsed in 2014 in by far the biggest bank collapse in the history of Bulgaria. Since it failed, the controversial businessman has lived in Serbia where he has other business interests.

In 2006, he bought the Serbian Glass Factory company, in the town of Paracin. It employs over 800 people and is one of the backbones of the local economy, but is currently facing bankrupcy.……

Zoran Zaev, und die Kumanova Terroristen in 2015

Court Testimony confirms involvment of Zoran Zaev Government in Kumanovo Terrorist attack
Wednesday, 19 July 2017
PES Budapest 2015: Gangster Treffen der Korruption: Zoran Zaev Ma

 

Confirming what WikiLeaks already revealed, this morning a scandalous testimony of a terrorist involved in attack on police and civilians in Kumanovo directly involves the current Zoran Zaev led Government in both the attack on Goshince and later in Kumanovo back in 2015. Both SDS and DUI structures assisted by the US Embassy provided logistical and operational support for the terrorists, while the Americans requested to „remove ISIS recruits from the group in order to get rid of any references to religious elements“.

Sulejman Osmani, who was questioned by the prosecution separately today, stated the terrorist incident was set up by internal SDS and DUI structures. He doesn’t name names, however uses the codeword „messiahs“, adding the same structures organized the attack on Goshince, near the Kosovo border in which large quantities of weapons were taken.

Osmani did mention one name which belonged to this group of „messiahs“, and that’s current Minister of Agriculture and former mayor of Lipkovo, Sadula Duraku, known in 2001 for turning off the water supply to the residents of Kumanovo.

Osmani stated Duraku’s job was to guard the weapons stolen from Goshince, however things got complicated so they had to receive weapons from Kosovo.

Osmani stated everything was organized in Macedonia, they were received and transported in organized fashion, food, gasoline, cigarettes and freedom of movement was provided 24/7. He mentioned their weapons were brought in using hospital ambulances provided by the city of Kumanovo were mayor is SDS Zoran Damjanovski. This fact was also confirmed by other testimonies.

„Begu and Mirsad told us: sleep peacefully, no place for panic, we have guarantees. Even when the shooting started, we were told to relax, police will make some controls, but will return, they wouldn’t do anything because peope in high places are involved“.

Commander Malisheva confirmed the same thing in his testimony.

Structures within DUI and SDS, including the Kumanovo mayor assisted  the terrorists to settle in Kumanovo. Malisheva stated Zaev was tasked to release „bombs“ of wiretapped politicians as a distraction while the terrorist group coordinated their efforts with high ranking diplomats at US/NATO base Bondsteel and in Macedonia.

„What I can confirm and this is the most important is that our activities were well known to the US Government, because Americans are and will forever be our best friends. The Americans simply asked Mirsad Ndrecaj to not have ISIS recruits in the group in order to remove any religious elements“, said Malisheva in a letter he sent out to the press last year.

The SDS involvement of the terrorist attack in Kumanovo runs rather deep considering the connection of Zakir Bekjiri Chaush and Muhamed Zekiri with islamic terroris structures in Kosovo. Chaush is Zaev’s right hand man while Zekiri is in the Governing Board of SDS.

Last year, after Chaush was convicted and jailed for printing over 40,000 fake IDs who were suppose to be given to Kosovo residents to vote in Macedonian elections, the job for assisting and logistics of Kosovo’s terrorists on Macedonian territory was given to Muhamed Zekiri. Police also discovered 80 bullet proof vests during a raid on Chaush’s office that were meant to be delivered for the terrorists in Kumanovo.

Muhamed Zekiri at coffee shops near the Macedonian – Kosovo border met with Halil Ljuri, Samiaj Remzi – Mija, Vilja Burim, Shiti Emin, Shiti Nusrit, all members of extreme islamic and terrorist groups, with thick criminal dossier involved in election incidents in Macedonia.

Kommt die NATO, funktioniert Nichts mehr: Kroatien und die Wild Feuer

Jugoslawien hatte alle Wild Feuer gut unter Kontrolle, weil man grosse Feuer Schneisen überall anlegte, diese Schneisen im Frühjahr auch säuberte und rodete. Lokal wurde jedes Feuer sofort bekämpft und niemand kann sich an grosse Feuer erinnern.

Heute brennen überall die Wälder, und Nichts passiert, weswegen der Verteidigungs Minister seinen Rücktritt anbot.

Kroatien und Montenegro Schwere Waldbrände wüten an der Adria

Von red/dpa 

An der Adriaküste wüten zurzeit schlimme Waldbrände. Die Einsatzkräfte konnten das Übergreifen der Brände auf die kroatische Stadt Split bislang verhindern.

Split – In einem Großeinsatz von Feuerwehr und Soldaten ist das Übergreifen der Waldbrände auf die kroatische Adriastadt Split verhindert worden. Die Urlaubermetropole sei „verteidigt“ worden, teilten die Einsatzkräfte am Dienstag mit. Die Feuerwalze zwischen den Orten Omis und Split habe 4500 Hektar Wald vernichtet. Regierungschef Andrej Plenkovic kam am Dienstagmorgen in die Hafenstadt, um sich ein Bild von dem Großfeuer zu machen. Da innerhalb von wenigen Stunden an 20 verschiedenen Stellen Feuer ausgebrochen war, spekulierten die Medien über Brandstiftung.

Croatian Defence Minister Offers to Quit over Fires

While visiting fire-affected areas near the Croatian coastal city of Split on Tuesday, Croatian Defence Minister and Vice Prime Minister Damir Krsticevic offered his resignation over the military’s allegedly slow reaction to the blazes on the coast, Jutarnji list newspaper reported.

His offer of resignation followed criticism by the Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic, who said during her official visit to Austria on Tuesday that “the military could have come out earlier” to help put out the forest wildfires that seriously endangered Split on Monday evening.

Grabar Kitarovic added that although troops are not specially trained to put out fires, the military could have assisted the firemen who have been fighting fires along the coast since the weekend.

However, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic told an urgent press conference on Tuesday afternoon that he refused to accept the resignation, insisting that Krsticevic and the military had done nothing wrong.

Plenkovic added that he had talked with Krsticevic, telling him „to calm down“.

Plenkovic said that wildfires are „interesting for the media“ as it is uncommon for wildfires to spread to Split, but pointed out that only 16 people have been seen by doctors after inhaling smoke from the blazes, while one person died because of an existing heart condition.

He also said that it was „not clear“ to him „according to which information“ the president stated that the military’s reaction came too late.

The Defence Ministry released a video of a plane putting out a fire near Split.

Before offering his resignation on Tuesday, Krsticevic had claimed that that the military reacted promptly when asked to step in.

He also insisted that the army acted according to procedure.

“We came among the first. You know what kind of system it is. The system is such that we [the military] react when we are called. I can’t influence when that local commander will make that decision,” hetold Croatian Radio-Television, HRT.

Minutes later however, Jutarnji list reported that he had offered to resign.

Although Krsticevic’s offer to step down came after the president’s criticism, Grabar Kitarovic told Jutarnji list that she was “surprised” by the minister’s apparent resignation, calling it “absolutely unacceptable”.

The G20: Is the West Governed by Psychopaths?

 

The American Spectator has explored how George Soros and his Open Society Foundation staged a friendly takeover — friendly because the U.S. Government was a willing target — of U.S. foreign policy institutions in the Balkans from Skopje, Macedonia to Tirana, Albania to Athens, Greece.

Deliberate Political Dysfunction?

Instead of offering dispassionate advice, like an influential older brother eager to see a younger sibling mature, the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo regularly hectors the country’s leaders and citizens; promotes new rights for sexual minorities while chastising constitutionally-recognized minorities for running (constitutionally-recognized) schools; and plays a dangerous game of favoritism, advancing the Muslim community over Croatians and Serbs, to the detriment of all.

As a result of U.S. and European Union (EU) policies, radical Islam has burrowed into BiH, Croats are being driven out, and Serbs are increasingly allying with Russia.

Evidence that some Bosniaks have become dangerously radicalized — living, please note, in the heart of “New Europe” — came last week when Turkish authorities interrupted a suicide bombing planned by an Islamic State jihadi carrying a BiH passport.

With potentially tragic consequences, the Trump administration has given a failed foreign policy more oxygen by leaving Obama diplomatic hands in place.

And indifference toward a turbulent place is unwise, especially when jihadi terrorists, now being disbursed from Iraq and Syria, are looking to blend into the proverbial woodwork and existing safe havens in BiH put them on Europe’s doorstep.

BiH Cardinal Vinko Puljic has long pointed to the Dayton Peace Accords, as the source of the country’s problems: “Divide the country and then pretend it is one nation? This is deeply illogical.”

He bluntly told an Italian newspaper two years ago, “This state does not work.”

Political dysfunction might have been baked into the recipe from the start: observing Clinton administration machinations in BiH, Alfred Sherman, an adviser to Margaret Thatcher, concluded that U.S. policy relied on “lying and cheating, fomenting war in which civilians are the main casualty, and in which ancient hatreds feed on themselves.

President Donald Trump promised something new, so an anatomy of the Bosnia and Herzegovina status quo is in order.

“Welcome to Hell!” is the slogan with which G20 protesters greet the self-appointed leaders of the world to the Hamburg G20, under Madame Merkel’s auspices to discuss the calamities of our globe and how to resolve them……………………………………

Nobody has elected the G20, nor the G7. ‘G’ stands for Grand or Great. That’s how they see themselves. Everybody takes them for granted, the self-appointed megalos. Nobody seems to question their legitimacy. People only protest against what they stand for. That the G20 are sidelining the official body, the United Nations, is of no concern. Perhaps, because the UN has itself become a puppet of the invisible Masters, manipulated by their executioners, the US of A. So, has any international court that otherwise could hold them accountable for the crimes they committed over the century, or longer and keep committing. The G7, embedded in the G20, are the aggressing driving force for wars, destruction, merciless killing and perpetual chaos.

The G7 – Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK and the US – all western nations (Japan follows the western game plan), are also the main creators of terrorism. They fund, feed, train and arm such reputed Islamic terror groups as ISIS / IS, Al Qaeda, Al Nusra – and others that fit the model of their war strategy (sic) of the moment.

Yet, it just emerged – would you believe – that the number one item on the rather fuzzy Hamburg agenda was fighting worldwide terrorism. How hypocritical: you create them, fund them, and you fight them. Lying to the people. How much longer will they swallow the lie?

This reminds of the prominent former German Chancellor, Helmut Schmidt’s words, shortly before his death, in an interview on terrorism to the German paper “Die Zeit”, on 30 August 2007: “I suspect that all terrorists, whether they represent the German RAF, the Italian Brigate Rosse, the French, the Irish, Spanish or Arabs, are relatively modest in their disdain for humanity. They are largely surpassed by certain forms of state terrorism.” – When the journalist asked back, „Are you serious? Whom are you referring to?” Schmidt: ”Let’s leave it at that. I really mean what I say“

(http://www.zeit.de/2007/36/Interview-Helmut-Schmidt/seite-7 – in German).

Only western megalo-psychopaths could have thought of ‘creating’, of nominating themselves into an alliance, of which the ultimate goal is to forge a New World Order (NWO), at times also called, One World Order, referring to an unspoken One Anglo-Zionist Government. That’s where we are headed; towards military oppression and financial subjugation of a small Zionist-headed financial and military elite.

…………………………….

Never mind that NATO has nothing to do with South America, or with Asia, or the Middle East, for that matter. The atrocious NATO killing machine will do their work in the process of subjugation anywhere in the world, while most people just close their eyes and ears, and remain mute. As the illegitimate G20 and G7 – NATO is just taken for granted. But be aware – it’s a criminal institution made for killing societies and subordinating sovereign nations. Washington’s current plan is controlling Russia, via NATO’s eastern European border aggressions, and China, by constantly provoking and threatening North Korea’s sovereignty.

That’s why the G20 will not miss talking about NATO prerogatives in war and conflict resolutions and, of course, in fighting terrorism. Surely, Russia and China will not fall for it.

EUSTAR project will bring a safer future to BiH

EUSTAR project will bring a safer future to BiH

European Union support a safer environment in BiH through various activities and one of the most important is the project EUSTAR, which officially begun on Friday, on the ceremony of signing the contract with other international organizations.The ceremony took a place at the EUFOR HQ in Camp Butmir, near Sarajevo. EUSTAR is acronym for “European Union Assistance to Stockpile Management, Technical Support, and Ammunition Surplus Reduction”. The project represents the second phase of European Union’s support to the establishment of sustainable stockpile management in BiH. The project is the successor to the EXPLODE project which witnessed the disposal of more than 1,800 tons of ammunition over its life cycle. According to BiH Ministry of Defense,  ammunition is located in 12 storage sites throughout the country. It is expected that it will be necessary to dispose around 6 000 tonnes of unsafe ammunition for further storage in order to reach the desired and final stage of a sustainable stockpile management system in BiH. The mission is to reduce risks and threats concerning peace, stability and development in BiH, by contributing to the improvement of a sustainable stockpile management system in the country…………………..http://www.balkaneu.com/eustar-project-will-bring-a-safer-future-to-bih/

Wenn die EU, UN, USA Justiz bringen: Courts in Kosovo with over 200 thousand unresolved cases

Courts in Kosovo with over 200 thousand unresolved cases

The large number of unsolved cases in the courts of Kosovo continues to be a problem, that the judicial system is not being able to overcome for years now.Competent authorities say that there are over 200 thousand old cases, which are still unsolved and the majority of them belong to first instance courts.

Meanwhile, analysts say that lack of accountability and irresponsibility of judges is a problem for this.

The head of Kosovo Judicial Council, Nehat Idrizi says that judges have not deliberated the necessary number of cases that they had to deliberate.

“These cases are old and carried forward from one year to another. We are building a strategy to reduce the number of these cases. We have experts from the US who will offer us a concrete plan for this”, Idrizi says.

Law professor, Fatos Rushiti, told IBNA that Kosovo needs a general review of the justice system.

“Prosecutors and judges must be more familiarized with the cases that they represent. The number of judges must grow and courts must be digitalized”, Rushiti says.

According to him, rule of law institutions must undergo reforms in order to improve transparency and accountability.

“Rule of law means delivering justice, fighting corruption and a stable legal environment where the rights and liberties of everyone are protected”, he said. /balkaneu.com/

Die NATO geschaffenen Drogen „Failed State“: 40 mal höhere Drogen Produktion: Albanien, Afghanistan, Kosovo

Afghan Opium Production 40 Times Higher Since US-NATO Invasion

Posted: 20 Jun 2017 09:00 PM PDT

Since the U.S.-led NATO invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, the production of opium in the country has increased by 40 times according to Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service, or FSKN, fueling organized crime and widespread death. The head of the FSKN, Viktor Ivanov, explained the staggering trend at a March U.N. conference on drugs in Afghanistan. Opium growth in Afghanistan increased 18 percent from 131, 000 hectares to 154, 000, according to Ivanov’s estimates.
