That Crush at Kosovo’s Business Door? The Return of U.S. Heroes

Akos Stiller

American flags streamed recently above the main street of Pristina, Kosovo’s capital. One of the world’s newest countries, Kosovo separated from Serbia, with the support of the United States.



  • PRISTINA, Kosovo — Prime Minister Hashim Thaci is in a bind. His country’s largest and most lucrative enterprise, the state telecommunications company, is up for sale. The jostling among buyers is intense. Narrowing the bidders has hardly helped.

One bid is from a fund founded by former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright. Lobbying for another was James W. Pardew, the Clinton-era special envoy to the Balkans. Both former diplomats are among the Americans who hold the status of heroes here for their roles in the 1999 intervention that separated Kosovo from Serbia and created one of the world’s newest states.

In a meeting with Mr. Pardew in October, the prime minister explained his “difficult position” in having to choose between the buyers, according to a memo leaked to the newspaper Zeri, “because whichever of the two bidders behind them wins, he will be seen by 2 million people to have betrayed the other one.”

So many former American officials have returned to Kosovo for business — in coal and telecommunications, or for lobbying and other lucrative government contracts — that it is hard to keep them from colliding.

They also include Wesley K. Clark, a retired Army general and the former supreme allied commander of NATO forces in Europe who ran the bombing campaign against the Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic; and Mark Tavlarides, who was legislative director at the Clinton White House’s National Security Council.

The State Department has no policy that forbids former diplomats to lobby on behalf of nations where they served or returning to them for profit, beyond the one applying to federal employees as a whole, which prohibits senior officials from contacting agencies where they once worked for one year and bans all federal employees for life from advising on the same matters.

Kosovo is not the only nation where former officials have returned to conduct business — Iraq is another example — but it presents an extreme case, and perhaps a special ethical quandary, given the outsize American influence here. Pristina, the capital, may be the only city in the world where Bob Dole Street intersects Bill Clinton Boulevard.

Foreign policy experts say the practice of former officials’ returning for business is more common than acknowledged publicly. Privately, former officials concede the possibility of conflicts of interest and even the potential to influence American foreign policy as diplomats who traditionally made careers in public service now rotate more frequently to lucrative jobs in the private sector.

Asked for comment, former officials involved said their business dealings with the Kosovo government would benefit Kosovars by building a more prosperous economy. “We’re going to employ people, provide training, create exports and help the country grow and develop as a democracy,” said General Clark, who is chairman of Envidity, a Canadian energy company seeking to explore Kosovo’s lignite coal deposits and produce synthetic fuel.

Lawrence Lessig, a law professor and director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard, said the appearance of “cashing in” risked undermining the prestige of the United States by clouding the humanitarian nature of the 1999 intervention, which was aimed at ending Serbian atrocities against Kosovars.

After the separation, Kosovo was an international protectorate run by thousands of officials from other countries and the United Nations serving as government representatives and private contractors. Four years of internationally “supervised independence” ended in September. About 6,000 peacekeepers remain.

The closeness of the ties between the state-builders and the state they built has made it easy for officials to change hats. Though the country is one of Europe’s poorest, there is still the potential for profit, particularly as the government privatizes critical assets.

Albright Capital Management, founded by Ms. Albright, has been shortlisted in the bidding for a 75 percent share in the state telecommunications company, PTK. The company’s sale is expected to bring in between $400 million and $800 million.

 Bechtel had help getting the contract from Mr. Tavlarides, the legislative director at the National Security Council during the 1999 Kosovo intervention. According to a lobbying report filed with the United States government, Mr. Tavlarides lobbied on behalf of Bechtel in Kosovo on “highway-related issues” while working for Van Scoyoc Associates, a Washington-based lobbying firm.

Mr. Tavlarides now works at the Podesta Group, which signed a $50,000 monthly contract with the Kosovo government on Jan. 1, advising it on communications and strengthening Kosovo’s ties to the United States government. The Podesta Group was co-founded by John Podesta, White House chief of staff in Mr. Clinton’s second term. Mr. Podesta left the firm in 1993. It is still owned by his brother, Anthony.

Mr. Tavlarides declined to comment, citing his firm’s policy to not speak with the news media about clients.

For his part, General Clark said it was “insulting” to suggest that there could be any conflict between private profit-making and his past responsibilities. “My business is aboveboard, transparent and helps the Kosovar people,” he said. “We are going to use a resource that had no value to the Kosovo people and bring in hundreds of millions of dollars of investment.”

United States military officers have a one-year post-retirement ban on contacting their former armed service about official matters, and a lifetime ban on any contacts related to the same matters on which they worked, according to the Pentagon.


 Even some former officials acknowledge discomfort at the extent of the interplay between dealing and diplomacy.

Steven P. Schook, a retired United States army brigadier general and former chief of staff of KFOR, NATO’s force in Kosovo, said he had “mixed feelings” about it.

Mr. Schook, who also served as the deputy head of the United Nations mission in Kosovo, has returned as a private consultant for former Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, who was acquitted last month by the war crimes tribunal in The Hague. He says that he works for Mr. Haradinaj because of a belief in his leadership and that his only compensation is his expenses living in Kosovo, about $2,600 a month.

“There are a lot of ex-diplomats coming in and out that are now representing private interests,” he said. “If I’m a large corporation and I want to get in to be competitive, I want to work with people to help me do that.”

“But on the other hand, it seems a bit tawdry,” Mr. Schook added. “One minute you’re liberating a place, and the next minute you’re trying to get an energy tender.”

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:

Correction: December 12, 2012

An earlier version of this article misstated part of the name of the lobbying firm where Mark Tavlarides now works. It is the Podesta Group, not Podesta Associates.

Army War College: Clark/Kosovo Air Campaign
Army War College, Parameters, Spring 2000, pp. 13-29. ^ | May 2000 | TIMOTHY L. THOMAS

Posted on Mittwoch, 15. Oktober 2003 21:14:38 by Robert A. Cook, PE

Following is quoted the middle of the entire report.

Note: Detailed planning for the Kosovo campaign was ordered by Clinton in Mid-1998, the campaign itself started in March 1999, immediately after Clinton’s impeachment, and slightly before Hillary began her NY Senate campaign.

Reference numbers in the text are to footnotes in the orginal Army War College report.

The Views of General Wesley Clark, Supreme Allied Commander, NATO

It is important to note that this analysis is simply an attempt to express the concern generated by sets of figures that do not correspond to one another. It is not an attempt to cast doubt on General Wesley Clark, who has received far less credit than he deserves for keeping the alliance together during the conflict. General Clark does not count tanks; he relies on figures provided by others. It is fair to examine the figures he is being provided, however, and to consider how he chose to use them.

On 12 July, one month after the end of the bombing, the Navy Times discussed General Clark’s testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee. Relying on information provided by his staff, Clark stated that reports about NATO warplanes striking decoys and failing to destroy tanks and personnel carriers was a concerted disinformation campaign. Rather, he chose to underscore the virtual invulnerability of NATO aircraft and the fact that Kosovo set a new standard for warfare. He did not mention that there was no air force flying against NATO, nor that the 15,000-foot limitation was set to ensure there would be no damage to NATO’s „virtually invulnerable“ fleet. Battle damage assessment, according to Clark, included the destruction of 110 Serb tanks, 210 armored personnel carriers, and 449 guns and mortars. He also noted that NATO was aware the Serbs were using decoys and were able to recognize them. Department of Defense estimates of battle damage were slightly higher than Clark’s estimates (120 tanks, 220 armored personnel carriers, and 450 artillery pieces).[14]

Clark later offered a reason why the battle damage may not have been as high as initially expected–there was a spy within NATO giving targets away to Belgrade. The Pacific Stars and Stripes quotes Clark on 13 August as saying the leak „was as clear as the nose on your face.“[15] That is certainly one form of asymmetric offset to information superiority, and again it involves the human dimension. Even with complete information superiority, one can’t destroy the target if the enemy knows an attack is coming and simply moves it or replaces it with a dummy target. NATO officials were reportedly tipped off that a spy might be among them by the fact that certain targets appeared to be vacated after appearing on target lists but before NATO planes attacked.

In September, a Pentagon review of the war was delayed by one month in order to fill in gaps in the number of armored vehicles and artillery batteries actually destroyed. One report noted that General Clark told a Pentagon officer that analysts verified only some 70 percent of the reported hits. Clark then ordered the US European Command to prepare a new estimate as well.[16] In a later report, Clark lowered his battle damage assessment, noting that in all likelihood only 93 tanks and 153 armored personnel carriers were destroyed.[17] The difference–17 tanks and 57 armored personnel carriers–is close to two reinforced infantry battalions. That obviously would be an extremely significant difference to a ground commander preparing for an attack. Accurate damage assessments are crucial to a ground commander’s maneuver requirements.

Even with total information superiority, it was not possible to verify battle damage with any accuracy some two months after the conflict ended, despite having NATO forces on the ground and overhead coverage of departing Serb vehicles. Since DOD and NATO still have not produced a compatible set of figures to this day, there clearly is a faulty methodology or other problem here as well. All of these hits were cockpit recorded and many were shown on TV. There should be near compatibility between NATO and Pentagon findings in the age of information superiority.

The British Press and Other Reporters on Battle Damage Assessment

Independent accounts from reporters covering the battle for Kosovo offered an entirely different set of battle damage statistics from those offered by either General Clark or the Pentagon. Their perspective is interesting for it is offered from firsthand, on-the-ground analysis, just like the latter NATO and Pentagon estimates.

The first newspaper reports on battle damage appeared at the end of June. Indications were that only 13 Serb tanks and fewer than 100 armored personnel carriers had been destroyed. Reporters noted the ruins of many different types of decoys hit by NATO forces (e.g., rusted tanks with broken parts, wood or canvas mock-ups). Carlotta Gall of The New York Times, a veteran war correspondent from the first Russian war in Chechnya, saw little damage. Newsweek reporter Mark Dennis found only one destroyed tank after driving around Kosovo for ten days. Did the Serbs manage to extricate all of their destroyed vehicles during their publicly filmed withdrawal, did they hide them, or did they really experience much less damage than NATO sources declared?

In late July, Aviation Week and Space Technology reported that NATO had dropped 3,000 precision-guided weapons that resulted in 500 hits on decoys, but destroyed only 50 Yugoslav tanks. Deputy Defense Secretary John Hamre also reported that all 30 (other sources use the figure 20) incidents of collateral damage would be studied (the trains, convoys, schools, hospitals, and Bulgarian strikes).[18] What types of bombs actually hit the decoys is known only by Pentagon insiders, so they are the only ones capable of calculating the amount of money wasted on these targets. This is an important issue, however, because early in the war NATO and US stocks of precision weaponry ran very low, a fact that undoubtedly was noted and highlighted by other nations with hostile intent toward the alliance. They received a yardstick measurement of how long an air campaign can proceed using certain types of high-tech armaments against specific targets before stocks run low.

U.S. News and World Report, in its 20 September 1999 edition, stated that a NATO team visited 900 „aim points“ targeted by NATO in Kosovo and found only 26 tank and similar-looking self-propelled-artillery carcasses. This would again throw NATO’s revised number of 93 tanks out the window. However, how many tank carcasses were in Serbia, where the NATO team did not visit, is not known, making this figure less provocative and contradictory than it originally appears. The article also reported increased friction between General Clark and his NATO air operations chief, Lieutenant General Michael Short, over target selection and strategy (mobile targets such as tanks versus infrastructure, respectively). The article concluded that it was not air power but Russia’s withdrawal of support for Serbia that probably brought an end to the air war in Kosovo. The article noted that in future conflicts, the most merciful way to end them may be to conduct them swiftly and violently instead of by the trial-and-error, phased approach used in Kosovo.[19]

Finally, several British officers, both retired and serving, also noted that damage was much less than originally stated. One newspaper report, citing British Ministry of Defense sources, stated that the damage done to tanks was perhaps even less than the lowest quoted figure of 13 tank kills.[20] But the most damning comment could prove to be from an International Herald Tribune article on 1 October. Written by Frederick Bonnart, the editorial director of the independent but highly authoritative NATO’s Nations, the article discusses how NATO „propaganda“ was used against the West. He notes:

In democracies, it is the duty of the public services to present the truth even in wartime, and particularly when they are in sole control of the information. If it is deliberately designed to engender fear and hate, then the correct term is propaganda.[21]

only 93 tanks and 153 armored personnel carriers were destroyed

And in end it something like 7 tank and 13 carriers.

«The Pristina Republic of Kosovo» carries out two criminal functions. It itself serves as a source of organized crime. The very existence of paramilitary subversive-terrorist formation called the Kosovo Liberation Army, thinly veiled as the so called Kosovo security force or Kosovo police, confirms the fact. On the other hand, the region has become an area of «crime dissemination» into Europe and other parts of the world. 

The first criminal function of «Kosovo project» presupposes full control of the «Republic of Kosovo» quasi-state by former Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) militants. They hold strategic positions, fully control «the state», social and political life; the civilian population is subject to institutionalized political, psychological and physical coercion. 

According to Western special services the Kosovo national intelligence service K-SHIK is responsible for the terror against its own population, it carries out punitive actions against the political opponents of ruling clique. It’s the «boss of Kosovo project» who approves the activities. This fact is confirmed by Kadri Veseli, former head of the Kosovo Intelligence Service, a key political partner of «Kosovo Prime-Minister» Hashim Thaçi, who said the service was supported by many partners – 25 intelligence services, the US contribution was very significant. …………….

Part of income goes to the Kosovo Liberation Army (there is no whatsoever control exercised over the «black funds» of drug clans) that acts under the protection of US «Kosovo project» promoters.

„Independent“ Kosovo: Gangland Spills Savagery Worldwide

The Western power centers use the „Republic of Kosovo“ as a testing ground for working out the ways to create a quasi-state that could be defined as an abnormal criminal case of global scope. The final goal is reshaping the whole of South East Europe. (



The US needs Kosovo for deployment of military installations on its territory in order to control South East Europe where the routes to Middle East oil riches start. There are the following NATO or NATO used military facilities in the Balkans: Hungary (Taszar), Romania (Deveselu, the port of Constanza, Mihail Kogalniceanu air base ), Bulgaria (the Novo Selo Training Range, Aitos Logistics Center near Burgas, Bezmer Air Base near Yambola, Graf Ignatievo air force base), Bosnia and Herzegovina (installations near Banja Luka, Mostar, Sarajevo, a small facility near Doboj), Croatia (Shepurin, Slun, Đakovo, Pula), Macedonia (Petrovec, a base near Kumanovo, Krivolak), Greece (Crete, and installations near Larissa) and finally Kosovo, (Bondstill and two installations near Montiff near Gnillane, a base near Vitina, artillery installation near Kaçanik, a base near Balovac near Podujeva). (4) According to Geiro the Kosovo Liberation Army is a punitive force that includes heads of mafia clans and is destined to oppress civilian population. It could never come to power without NATO and other Western power centers. (5)…………

Now Kosovo has become a training center of Syrian militants. The Syrian «opposition» asked the Kosovo Liberation Army for help in April 2012. It promised the recognition of Kosovo by «new Damascus» in return. The terrorist KLA leaders and Islamic extremists from Bosnia and Herzegovina rendered «support» in training Syrian paramilitary groups. Dzevad Galiashevic, member of expert team for South East Europe in fight against terrorism, claims the training centers are still based in the previous KLA locations, including the territory of Macedonia. Abdussamed Bushatlic, a former Al-Mujahedeen militant, a Wahhabi movement leader in Bosnia and Herzegovina, was among those who were seen there. According to Galiashevic missionary and ideological activities are conducted in Macedonia, Kosovo is a place of military preparatory activities. All terrorist activities are done under the patronage of NATO- led Kosovo Force (KFOR). The training camps are located in Drenitsa (the hamlet of Likovats, Yablanitsa and Glodjana). There are new training facilities built for mujahedeen from Muslim countries. One of them is situated in Drenica, another in Metohija (the hamlet of Smonitsa near Djakovica. Zoran Stijovic, former Serbian State Security officer in the 1990s, says the training is conducted for two types of operations: subversive-terrorist activities and intelligence gathering. The instructors are not Albanians only, the export model of Syrian revolution is prepared with the help of CIA operatives, Albanian KLA terrorists and the extremists from Bosnia and Herzegovina. (8) On June 20 2012 the Syrian army started a battle for the second largest city Aleppo, there were 400 «rebels» liquidated. The identification of the dead showed Kosovo Albanians fought on the side of terrorists along with the mercenaries from other countries.

Rodoljub Radulović, 63, is among the leadership of Šarić’s criminal enterprise, controlling shipping routes in South America and Europe and running transactions through proxies and shell companies in the Cayman Islands, Serbia, and the Americas.  Argentinian prosecution records and Greek police statements obtained by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project show that Radulović and Šarić are targeted by British investigators, the U.S. DEA and South American prosecutors. Additionally, an Italian prosecutor recently linked Šarić’s organization to at least three murders.

“I was trusted to lead this institution … and will fulfill the duties subscribed in law,” Llalla said at the ceremonial handover from his predecessor, Ina Rama.

“During my mandate I will motivate the prosecutor’s office to fight crime and  corruption without compromise,“ he added.

Rama, meanwhile, thanked her staff for the difficult work they had done over the last five years and called for the prosecution office to remain independent of politics.

“You work has shown responsibility and we have set some standards,” Rama said. “I hope that the prosecutor’s office will remain independent and free from political influence.”

Llalla was voted in on Friday evening with 75 votes in favour in parliament, and 54 MPs, from the Socialist opposition, abstaining.

A former head of the High Inspectorate for the  Discloser and Audit of Assets, HIDAA, Llalla was nominated as the new prosecutor by President Bujar Nishani on December 3.

Trajkovski investigation reopened on new evidence


BiH reopens plane crash investigation in light of new evidence from Macedonian authorities.

After receiving new evidence from Macedonia, authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) are re-opening the investigation of the February 26th 2004 plane crash that killed Macedonia President Boris Trajkovski and eight passengers and crew.

Trajkovski and the other passengers died when the presidential plane crashed en route to a conference in Mostar. The initial investigation of the plane crash concluded that the cause was a „procedural pilot error during landing at the airport in Mostar.“ No charges were filed.

„We hope that everything that the Macedonian Commission came upon will be further investigated by BiH authorities and this will end the doubts that we and our citizens have,“ Macedonia Interior Minister Gordana Jankulovska said.

Experts told SETimes that renewing the investigation after such a long period of time is a sensitive issue.

„The crucial evidence are the two black boxes from the presidential plane. But in the initial investigation only one of them, the cockpit voice recorder, could be and was analysed. The whole investigation was based on this information. The experts in Switzerland could not get to the information from the flight data recorder,“ said Zoran Dorevski, a security expert and author of the book Controversies of the Flight Zulu 3 Brava-Alpha-Bravo.

The responsibility for investigating aircraft accidents in BiH belongs to the Ministry of Communications and Transport. Omer Kulic, president of the Commission for Aviation at the ministry, will be in charge of the renewed probe. He said investigators will seek statements from the witnesses of the accident one more time.

„The government of Macedonia has formed a committee that worked for six years on this issue. They have done many things, collected new evidence, and we are constantly in touch with them,“

Ignjat Panchevski, lawyer for the Trajkovski family, claimed that the plane was struck by a missile and said that he has satellite images of the incident.

„Out of all relevant sources that I talked to during my research, no one has seen such images,“ Dorevski said. „If there are satellite images they should be made public.“

Kulic told SETimes.

Pancevski: Trajkovski had too much dirt on Western Politicians PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 22 February 2012
Two days ago Macedonian attorney Ignat Pancevski made shockwaves in the country by claiming there was mountain of evidence  to back up his statement that former president Boris Trajkovski was assassinated while flying over Bosnia along with his staff.According to Pancevski, the primary reason for the assassination is Trajkovski had too much sensitive information  on Western politicians about their deeds in Kosovo back in 1999 during which Macedonia accepted hundreds of thousands of refugees.

„Trajkovski was heavily involved as a deputy foreign Minister in what was happening in and around Kosovo. I have been working on this case for a long time and found information that speak of massive corruption, money laundering and scandals involving very high ranking Western politicians and diplomats. Trajkovski had tried to use this information as a leverage, which in the end was costly. What precisely Trajkovski asked of them isn’t known,“ says Pancevski.

Attorney Pancevski once again was adamant that Trajkovski was assassinated and there was plenty of undisputable evidence for this in Skopje.

While Pancevski came out with his shocking revelation, the Macedonian Government has started a procedure which involved drafting a new report which is a result of an 8 year long investigation.The report has made its way to the State prosecution office, however everything is being kept confidential.

2004: der Mazedonische Präsident Boris Trajkovski


Andreas Gross, Schweizer Mitglied des Europa Parlament, trug die Fakten nun vor, aus einer Untersuchung! Man hat Bänder erhalten, der Telefonate über Satellit, wie in 3 Sprachen NATO Miltiärs sich über den Abschuss beglückwünschten und auch keiner der Toden, hatte Kerosin Spuren, wie es bei einem Absturz üblich wäre.
In 2004, versuchten viele hoch kriminelle EU-US-NATO Politiker ihre Verbindungen zu Organisierten Kriminalität, Bin Laden, Islamischen Terroristen Gruppen zu vertuschen und schreckten auch nicht vor Mord zurück. Zeitgleich war der Höhepunkt im Visa Skandal, der Verbrecher Bande des Joschka Fischer, den ein Berliner Staatsanwalt, wie den AA Mafia Staatssekretär Chrobag, anklagen wollte.

Boris Trajkovski, sammelte wie jeder Präsident in der Welt, eigene Informationen und im Balkan war allgemein bekannt,die Verbrechens Strukturen der Deutschen (Bodo Hombach,Steinmeier, Deutsche Generäle, Michael Schäfer, Joschka Fischer usw..) ebenso vor allem der US Diplomaten, wo der heutige US Botschafter A. Dell, schon damals die Verbrecher Strukturen der Kosovo Politiker betreute.

Es gab ja auch Tode Deutsche, um diese Vertuschungen dieser Verbrechen und zwar Etliche in Tirana, wie ein BKA Bericht auch festhält.

Nachdem seit kurzem nochmal erneut rund um den merkwürdigen Absturz der Präsidenten Maschine ermittelt wird, outete sein Anwalt, das Boris Trjakovski, abgeschossen und ermordet wurde, weil er zuviel über die korrupten und kriminellen Machenschaften der westlichen Länder und Politiker, vor allem im Kosovo, wusste!

Das ist auch jeden Bundeswehr Offizier bekannt (der etwas länger vor Ort war), das gewisse westliche Politiker einen Rechts freien Raum in Europa benötigen und deshalb den Kosovo und Albanien als Drehschreibe für schmutzige Geschäfte benutzen.

2001, organisierte die u.a. die US Söldner Firma MPRI, kriminelle US Lobbyisten um US Senator Eliot Engel, Sahip Muja, die Verbrecher Banden des Joschka Fischer (siehe auch Visa Skandal – ein BKA Bericht) mit Allbright, ihre blutigen Verbrecher Strukturen zuvertuschen und was im Kosovo abläuft. Die hoch karätigen Mafia Verbindungen des Frank Wisner, des CIA, der US Diplomaten mussten vertuscht werden. Der Anwalt der Familie Trajkovski, sagt das das Flugzeug damals in Bosnien abgeschossen wurde (ein offzieller Absturz Bericht liegt nicht vor, obwohl ja die NATO zuständig ist)und in diesen Jahren, es noch mehr Tode gibt und gab auch den US-Botschafter Josef Limprecht im Mai 2002, dessen Verbrecher Verbindungen geourtet wurden und so eine US Kongress Anhörung, durch Liqidierung wegfiel. Grund war, Trajkosvski hatte die Verbrecher Verbindungen der NATO, Amerikaner zu kriminellen Terroristen u.a. in Mazedonien kritisiert und die gesamte Verbrechens Struktur der UNMIK, NATO (secret NATO Bericht, über Xhavit Halili und Partner) im Kosovo, was heute allgemein gut dokumentiert ist. Ebenso die Korruption der Lobby Zirkel, welche getarnt als Wirtschafts Gesellschaften der Deutschen Mafia Regierung unter Schröder – Joschka Fischer – Steinmeier den gesamten Balkan korrumpierten. siehe auch Ausführungen von Del Ponte, über den Verbrecher Georg Tenet, der jede Mithilfe verweigerte, und die Non-Stop Hindernisse der NATO, Amerikaner, UNMIK (US General und Vize UNMIK Chef: Steven Schook, als Partner der kriminellen Banden) siehe auch geheimer UNMIK Bericht, über den Organ Handel und UCK Verbrechen aus 2003, der auch unter Verschluss kam und im Juli 2011, zu einer ZDF Doku führte. Auch hier sind viele Namen erwähnt, wie im NATO und BKA Bericht. Die IEP Miltiär Studie Kosovo 2007, bestätigte nur noch, das schon damals alle Institutionen, Organisationen inklusive der NATO – KFOR Stäbe, von der OK und Mafia unterwandert sind.

Jeder kannte diese Fakten auf dem Balkan, wo sich die Politik Verbrecher, sogar Immunität überall besorgten, für ihre Verbrecherische Tätigkeiten. Nur damals versuchte man noch Alles zuvertuschen und einige Deutsche, leben heute in der Schweiz, weil die Verbrechens Struktur, des Joschka Fischer und des Auswärtigen Amtes unter Steinmeier die Verbrechen ebenso vertuschen wollten und kriminelle Diplomaten: Rund um Heribert Schenck, Sabine Bloch, die Dumke Bande usw.. siehe BKA Bericht und dieser unendlich dumme Deutsche Botschafter Peter Kiviett, der die Botschaft, damals direkt der Mafia übergab, und vor seiner Frau, lieber ins Rogner Hotel flüchtete.

Eine wichtige Rolle, spielte damals Philip Reeker, der als total Versager heute wieder im Balkan auftaucht.  Pancevski: Former President Trajkovski was brutally murdered Monday, 20 February 2012
Former Macedonian president Boris Trajkovski and the rest of the passengers were brutally murdered over Bosnia, while the mountain of evidence is all in Skopje, says Ignat Pancevski, attorney for one of the families. This shocking statement by Pancevski comes from years of gathering evidence, explaining that not that he has seen the evidence, but now he actually has some of it in his possession.
Pancevski explains that the passengers of the presidential plane which was „brought down“ over Bosnia on February 26th 2004 were all alive. „All passengers in the plane were hurt, but I repeat, they were all alive. have evidence that one of the passengers phoned his family and spoke to them for half an hour. His legs were badly hurt, but he spoke to his family. There is evidence, audio and video evidence for this assassination There is a satellite video footage what happened. Trajkovski’s presidential plane was shot down by a military aircraft. After the plane went down, mobile military units (the same units spotted by Bosnian villagers) went to the fallen presidential plane and brutally murdered the Macedonian president, the crew and his advisors. The bodies were scattered by the soldiers and set on fire with napalm“ says attorney Pancevski. Pancevski says Macedonian governmental structures and the secret services is acutely aware of what happened and the reasons behind it. However, they were concerned of going public… „I have repeatedly asked the Macedonian Government to meet with me because of the mountain of evidence I possess, but no one has contacted me. Neither the prosecution, nor the Commission who was investigating the „incident“, nor Andreas Gross, the Swiss MP who has repeatedly stated that Trajkovski was assassinated.“ says Pancevski. This is what Andreas Gross said in European Parliament in May 2010. „I am utterly convinced this was a murder, based on new informations that I can’t presently speak of. Of course, this is my personal belief, based on contradictions in the official story which leads to the hypothesis that this was a murder.“ Gross added the motives, the cause and the reasons should be sought in the West, and not the East, adding he was fearing for his safety and no longer drives his car!!! Pancevski continued… „The evidence is simply too much. Where do you want me to start? The fact that none of the bodies have kerosene traces, the fact we have audio recordings of military organization congratulating itself via their communication channels in three languages for the successful shooting down of Trajkovski’s presidential plane!!!“ says Pancevski adding „all evidence is in Skopje, all of it“. Pancevski says he will make everything public very soon. Channel 5 just recently did an analysis of the „incident“ on their show „KOD“. It found dozens of holes in the official story, the fact that the radar in Mostar was not functioning, yet it somehow gave ‚readings‘ of the plane speed and location, one day after it disappeared. The ILT device did not work the entire day, during the day of the incident. ILT devices would have shown the location of where the presidential plane had fallen. When Macedonian authorities flew to Bosnia to question foreign military personnel who managed the radars/ILT device, the soldiers were whisked away by their supervisors to a Western European country. The ILT device was first said did not function the entire day due to faulty equipment, however it somehow started working the following morning to pinpoint the fallen plane and burnt bodies. Boris Trajkovski’s twin brother Aleksandar, has said from day one that his brother was murdered! This ‚incident‘ was also a cause for additional inter-party quarrel. VMRO claimed that during SDSM’s reign, there has been two highly suspicious presidential assassinations, one of Gligorov and Trajkovski. //Emil Zafirovski Historischer Rückblick, über die US  und NATO Verbrecher, direkt als Partner mit Bin Ladens Militär Chef!

Albania Ranked Europe’s Most Corrupt Country

Albania has seen the worst fall in the region in the corruption index of Transparency International, TI, which has ranked it the most corrupt country in Europe.

The watchdog organisation „Corruption Perception Index“ saw Albania plunge in its rankings from from 95th place out of 176 countries in 2011 to 113th position in 2012.

“The results for 2012 show that Albanians continue to pay dearly for the cost of corruption,” Transparency International Albania said in a statement.

“Albania and Kosovo have the worst performance in the region and in Europe,” it added.

Kosovo went up from 112th place in 2011 to 105th place in 2012.

Other countries in the region saw also their corruption perception rankings worsen, with Montenegro in 75th place and Macedonia in 74th place, down from 66st and 69th places in 2011.

Meanwhile Croatia’s ranking went up, from 66th in 2011 to 62nd place in 2012, as did Serbia and Bosnia, which went up from 86th and 91st to 80th and 72nd positions.

Reacting to the findings of the index, Albania’s Socialist opposition leader, Edi Rama, blamed the government, saying the situation for Albanians was becoming hopeless.

“This is a present by the Albanian government for this centennial,” Rama said. “With this level of corruption there is no hope for economic growth,” he added.

Albania marked last week the 100th anniversary of the declaration of its independence from the Ottoman Empire.

The right-wing Red & Black Alliance also pointed the finger at the Prime Minister, Sali Berisha, calling for his arrest.

“Berisha is the most corrupt premier in Europe… and now this is fact,” its leader, Kreshnik Spahiu said.  “Albania can only develop if Sali Berisha is sent to prison,” he added.

The New Democratic Spirit, a splinter group from the ruling Democrats headed by former president Bamir Topi, said the government had no plan to curb corruption.

The CPI ranks countries based on how corrupt a country’s public sector is perceived to be. It is a composite index, a combination of surveys and assessments of corruption, collected by a variety of institutions.

The 2012 index published by the Berlin-based watchdog shows that corruption continues to ravage societies around the world.

Two-thirds of the 176 countries ranked in the 2012 index scored below 50, on a scale from 0 (perceived to be highly corrupt) to 100 (perceived to be very clean), showing that public institutions need to be more transparent, and powerful officials more accountable.

Civil Judicial Procedures and Remedies

Individuals and organizations may seek civil remedies for human rights violations; however, courts were susceptible to corruption, inefficiency, intimidation, and political tampering. Many court hearings were held in judges’ offices, which contributed to a lack of professionalism and opportunities for corruption. These factors undermined the judiciary’s authority, contributed to controversial court decisions, and led to an inconsistent application of civil law.

Serbia’s Prime Minister on Wednesday expressed his sorrow about the death of the country’s NATO ambassador who committed suicide in Brussels on Tuesday.

Media reports said that he killed himself at the airport in Brussels by jumping from a parking garage platform in front of Zoran Vujic, Serbia’s Deputy Foreign Minister.

According to Associated Press, Milinkovic was meeting Serbian officials arriving for talks at NATO. After the delegation arrived, as they walked over to their cars in the diplomatic garage Milinkovic suddenly strolled to a barrier, climbed over it and jumped, one of the diplomats recalled.

The incident happened at around 18:00 (17:00 GMT). Emergency services were called to the scene, but were not able to revive Milinkovic. Serbian journalists said Milinkovic had appeared normal during the day, talking and chatting with them as they covered a NATO foreign ministers meeting.

Prime Minister Ivica Dacic expressed condolences to the family and friends of the late ambassador. „Belgian police are investigating the case, but apparently it was a suicide,“ Dacic told reporters on Wednesday.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in a statement that he was „deeply saddened“ by the news.

„Ambassador Branislav Milinkovic was a highly respected representative of his country and will be missed at NATO headquarters,“ Rasmussen said.

Jelena Milic, director of the Belgrade Centre for Euro-Atlantic Studies, CEAS, told Balkan Insight that Milinkovic’s death was a loss for Serbia.

„Milinkovic was extremely versed in multilateral diplomacy and committed to Serbia’s active participation in those organizations where he represented Serbia,“ Milic said.

Slovenia: Balkan Warrior Trial Convicts Four, Acquits Leader






A Ljubljana court has convicted four Slovenians for drug trafficking and acquitted 13 others, including Dragan Tosic, the alleged ringleader of what police had called a Balkan crime ring, local media reports.

The acquittals came two weeks after the court accepted a request from defense attorneys to exclude recordings they said were obtained illegally by Serbian and Slovenian police. According to the judge, the remaining evidence, related to alleged drug trafficking in Italy and Uruguay, was not sufficient for a sentence for Tosic and the others.

The remaining defendants, who were detained in Italy, have been sentenced to between four and 10 years in prison on charges of drug production and trafficking. Police and media consider all four of the convicted to be low level “foot soldiers

Slovenian police arrested all 17 in an operation launched in 2010.  The men were accused of belonging to a gang led by Serbian national Darko Saric, an alleged drug kingpin who has been charged with trying to smuggle 2.8 tons of cocaine from South America to Europe but remains at large.

Dragan Tosic is thought to be the head of Saric’s Slovenian crime branch and is the owner of two well-known Ljubljana coffee shops.

The trial, which concluded Tuesday after 18 months, had been dubbed the „Balkan Warrior“ case. 

New Fiasco of the Slovenian judicial system

Society, 06 Nov 2012 / By STA, T. M,

Dragan Tošić, the suspected leader of the Slovenian arm of an international drug ring, and several other co-defendants in the Balkan Warrior trial were released from custody by the Ljubljana District Court on Tuesday in a decision that shocked the prosecution and surprised police investigators.

Slovenian judicial system: successful in insignificant penalties, big fishes are not accountable for their actions

The court’s judging panel released five from custody and lifted house arrest against two further of the total of 17 defendants in the high-profile cocaine trial, after deciding to exclude part of the evidence.

Voicing „shock“ at the decision, State District Prosecutor Blanka Žgajnar said the judging panel ruled that all the evidence collected in Slovenia and Serbia was gathered unlawfully, by violating human rights and freedoms.

Based on that decision, the panel released most of the defendants from custody. This means the panel does not think reasonable ground has been presented for suspicion the defendants committed the charges brought against them, the prosecutor said.

She said the excluded evidence was collected also based on an order by the Ljubljana District Court, announcing an appeal against the decision to end remand within three days.

The prosecution will also appeal against the exclusion of part of evidence, but only by appealing against the verdict, which Žgajnar hopes will be declared by 23 November.

„Serbian evidence was obviously sufficient for Serbia to pronounce final guilty verdicts, while Slovenia is obviously a human rights oasis where such evidence is not sufficient,“ prosecutor Mateja Gončin stated.

The evidence remaining is mainly that collected in Italy and Uruguay.

Žgajnar said the list of the evidence excluded was very long and would still need to be examined, but she would expect what remains was mainly incriminating for the part of subordinate ring members operating in Italy.

The defence welcomed the decision with Tošić’s lawyer Luka Zajc stating that the defence’s arguments proved justified. He claimed that no piece of evidence, including those excluded, was incriminating for Tošić.– 

Total Fiasco of Slovenian Judicial System

Society, 20 Nov 2012 / By STA, T. M:

Dragan Tosić, the alleged leader of what was believed to be the Slovenian arm of an international drug smuggling ring, was found innocent in the high-profile Balkan Warrior trial at Ljubljana District Court on Tuesday. The highest sentence, 10 years, was handed to Anes Selman, who was accused of selling 450 kilos of cocaine in Italy in 2007 and 2008.

Marko Bublič and Dejan Zupan, responsible for renting apartments and storing drugs, got eight and seven years respectively, and Sandra Udrih, also involved in logistics, four years.

The acquittal of the majority of the defendants comes after one of the most closely watched trials in the country on record, which lasted over a year and a half, saw an unexpected turn of events two weeks ago, as he panel of judges threw out wiretapping evidence that it says was obtained unlawfully.

Remaining without the evidence collected in Slovenia and Serbia, the prosecution had to build on evidence gathered in Italy and Uruguay, especially on testimony by turncoat Francesco Petrelli.

Presiding judge Gorazd Fabjančič explained that the verdict was based on evidence collected in Italy, where police seized three large shipments of cocaine whose transport and storage was believed the responsibility Bublič and Zupan, while Udrih rented vehicles and obtained false documents.

Romanian Businessman: Nelu Iordache Detained for Corruption

Romanian Businessman Detained for Corruption

Nelu Iordache, a businessman, has been detained for 29 days in a case involving an alleged EU fund embezzlement.

Marian Chiriac



Nelu Iordache, the owner of a low cost airline and of a construction company, has detained under suspicion of embezzling some 5.5 million euros from the EU funds supposed to be used for construction of a highway.

According to the government’s anti-corruption department, DNA, Iordache is also accused of money laundering and faking documents.

The Romanian company had entered into partnership with several Portuguese firms to conduct works on the highway in western Romania.

However, following some conflicts, the Portuguese companies reported their Romanian partner to several institutions, including the European Commission.

Iordache claimed he is innocent, while some political commentators suggest there the accusations could be politically motivated.

Nicknamed the King of Asphalt, Iordache is one of the richest Romanians, ranking 28th in the Forbes rich list, with an estimated wealth of some 150 million euro.

Romania is still considered one of the most corrupt states in the European Union and has made only limited progress in fighting graft and organised crime since it joined the EU in 2007.

It has drawn repeated criticism from the European Commission for its failure to tackle the problem.

But in recent months, the number of high-ranking officials sentenced for graft has increased significantly. Eleven top officials were sent to jail since 2010, including the former Prime Minister, Adrian Nastase, and some other ex-ministers.

Twenty-six mayors and prefects, 24 magistrates and 164 policemen have also been sent to jail, official figures show.

By comparison, no member of government or lawmaker was convicted of corruption between 2002 and 2009.
