“The attack on police, i.e. police checkpoint at 3:00 in the morning is a terrorist act,” Vranje Police Administration Spokesman Dragan Stamenković has said.

He stressed that he could not give any more information about the attack.

The village of Dobrosin is located around 16 kilometers southwest of Bujanovac.

The so-called Liberation Army of the Preševo, Bujanovac and Medveđa (OVPBM, UCPMB) was founded in Dobrosin in the beginning of January 2000.

More Ethnic Clashes Feared in Macedonia

Authorities are worried that Sunday’s clashes in the capital, Skopje, between ethnic Albanians and Macedonians may be repeated this weekend, as extremists on both sides use Facebook to summon supporters for a second round.

SkopjeThe violent scenes seen in the heart of Skopje have sparked a wave of hate-speech on Facebook, with ethnic Albanian and Macedonian hard-liners calling for renewed violence this Saturday.

Eight people were injured on Sunday when rival Macedonian and Albanian protesters scuffled over the controversial construction of a museum being erected on the foundations of a medieval church at the fortress in Skopje.

The fortress lies adjacent to the ethnic Albanian area of the city and many Albanians fear the new museum will be handed over to the Orthodox Church for active use.

“My Macedonian brothers, on Saturday we will have our revenge,” one Facebook group says, adding that it is time for “the final battle to eradicate the Shiptars”. “Shiptar” is a derogatory term for an Albanian.

Another Facebook profile, opened by Albanians opposed to the museum, says that “only a massacred Macedonian is a good caurin”. The word “caurin” is a derogatory for a member of the country’s Macedonian majority.

Police said they were taking action. Officers had been deployed around the site of the museum.

“We have officially informed Facebook of the existence of these profiles and groups who spread ethnic and religious intolerance and have asked for their closure,” police spokesman Ivo Kotevski told Balkan Insight.

Kotevski said that police will also pursue the owners of the IP addresses that host such insults and they have compiled lists of Facebook users who have answered calls to participate in future violent gatherings.

Roberto Belicanec, from the Skopje-based Media Development Center, an NGO, said the display of ethnic hatred on the internet was disappointing.

“While social networks are used in the Arab world to overthrow semi-dictatorships, in Macedonia they provide an outlet for hatred.” Belicanec urges the use of swift sanctions against those encouraging violence.

Macedonia suffered a short-lived armed conflict in 2001 between ethnic Albanian insurgents and the security forces. The country escaped all-out ethnic conflict after both sides signed a peace deal in Ohrid granting greater rights to Albanians, who make up about one-quarter of the population.

Tageszeitung “Fakti” beklagt drastische Zunahme der Gewaltkriminalität in den Albanergebieten Mazedoniens

Wo Albaner auftauchen, erkaufen sich Mafiöse Clan in die Politik ein und oft mit extrem gefährlichen Verbrechern u.a. der Deutschen SPD und FES, welche diese Zustände mit Geld fördern. Man gründet dann schnell mal einen Verein in Deutschland, um von den wahren Aktivitäten wie Schleusertum abzulenken.

Skopje, 1.7.2004, FAKTI, alban.

Tetova (Tetovo – MD) ist das europäische Epizentrum für Morde geworden, während Shkup (Skopje – MD) berüchtigt für Raubüberfälle und andere Formen der Gewaltkriminalität geworden ist. Ohne sich im Geringsten zu schämen, haben sich Menschen bei der Polizei mit Aussagen wie: “Drei Gangs, eine davon bestehend aus Kosovaren, operieren in Cair”. Mehr (? als die Aussagen aufzunehmen?) unternimmt die Polizei nicht.

Die Angriffe gehen weiter. Geschäftsleute werden am hellen Tag überfallen und in Angst und Schrecken versetzt, Augenzeugen geben an, in Jahja Pasha und anderen, von Albanern bewohnten Stadteilen von Shkup Menschen mit Pistolen, Kalaschnikows, Scoprpions und anderen Arten von Schusswaffen gesehen zu haben. Im albanischen Teil von Shkup häufen sich Szenen, die man nur in Wildwestfilmen erwartet und niemand unternimmt etwas, um das zu stoppen. In der Zwischenzeit setzt sich die Angst in den Herzen der Menschen fest.

Interessanterweise werden nur Albaner angegriffen, und die Angreifer sind ausschließlich Albaner, eine für die andere Seite sehr günstige Lage, denn sie freut sich, dass ihre Vorhersagen eintreffen.

Eight Injured in Clashes over ‘Church’ Construction in Macedonia

Rival Macedonian and Albanian protesters clashed on Sunday at Skopje’s fortress over the controversial construction of a museum in the form of a church, leaving several injured.

Sinisa Jakov Marusic

Skopje

Witnesses say that a fight broke out between ethnic Macedonians, who were supporting the building of the museum-church, and ethnic Albanians, who are opposed to the project, on Sunday afternoon.

Stones were thrown, and police said that eight people were injured in the incident, including two police officers. One person was seriously injured, and remains in hospital.

The situation in and around the Skopje fortress on Monday is calm, with a visible increase in police presence.

The plan to build a museum in the style of a medieval church at the fortress in Macedonia’s capital has ignited the country’s tense ethnic relations.

Nearly all ethnic Albanian political parties and organisations have labelled the project as a provocation from the ruling, conservative government of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski. Some have called for the construction of a mosque at the same location.

Following the clashes, the opposition and ruling parties traded blame over the incident.

In a joint statement, the ruling coalition partners, the centre-right VMRO DPMNE and the junior ethnic Albanian party, the Democratic Union for Integration, DUI, condemned the incident and appealed for calm.

“These sensitive issues should be solved only with open political dialogue through institutions,” the statement reads. “We assure you that the nurturing of the cultural rights and heritage of all ethnic communities remains a priority for both parties,” it added.

Meanwhile, the opposition Social Democrats asked for the resignation of Police Minister Gordana Jankulovska and her deputy Xhevat Buci for failing to prevent the incident. The party also urged the government to sack Pasko Kuzman, the head of the agency for the protection of cultural heritage, which launched the controversial construction.

“If they fail to do this they will admit that they deliberately fuel ethnic tensions in order to divert attention from the economic drought and poverty, crime and corruption,” the Social Democrats spokesman Emilijan Stankovic told media late on Sunday.

The clashes on Sunday came after previously a group of people, led by high-ranking officials from the DUI, the biggest ethnic Albanian party in the country, forcibly entered the fortress and started demolishing the construction site late on Friday.

The action was condemned by Gruevski and his VMRO DPMNE party.

The museum was being constructed on the foundations of a recently excavated 14th-century Orthodox church in the old fortress that dominates the skyline of the capital.

The style and location of the building stirred suspicions among Albanians, who saw it as an attempt by the Christian Macedonian majority to gain a foothold in what the mainly Muslim Albanians see as their side of town.

The row over the museum recalled the heated discussions of 2009 and 2010 about whether the state should build an Orthodox church in the centre of Skopje, near the main square.

All ethnic Albanian parties and many Albanian NGOs conditioned support for the church with the parallel erection of a mosque at a nearby location.

The authorities eventually abandoned the idea to build a church but gave the site to the Orthodox Church, which has since remained silent about the possible start of construction.

Macedonia Court Scraps Lustration Verdicts

A court has cleared the names of 15 former and current public office-holders after the country’s Lustration Commission ruled they had been police informants.

The Administrative Court in Skopje accepted the appeals of the 15 and scrapped the decisions of the Lustration Commission.

The state office is tasked with carrying out the Lustration Law, which aims to purge former police informants from public office.

The court found that the commission’s decisions, enacted over a year ago, were made on the basis of old provisions of the Lustration Law that earlier this year were pronounced unconstitutional.

In March the Constitutional Court annulled 12 controversial provisions of the Lustration Law, significantly narrowing the law’s scope.

“In its decision-making, the court called upon the Constitutional Court decision that annulled 12 provisions of the Lustration law as conflicting with the constitution,” Isamedin Limani, the president of the Constitutional Court, told Balkan Insight.

The court has advised all 15 current or former office-holders to personally pick up the court’s ruling and has informed the Lustration Commission of its decision.

Some prominent names who were cleared include Vladimir Milcin, the head of the Macedonian Open Society Foundation, Slobodan Ugrinovski, head of a small opposition party, “Tito’s Left Forces”, as well as Supreme Court judges and several former state officials.

The Constitutional Court in March ruled that it was unconstitutional to oblige people from professions including clergy, journalists, NGO activists and others to swear that they had never collaborated with the secret police during the Communist period or afterwards.

It also shortened the time span of the law that was previously applicable until 2019.  The court ruled that that it may cover only the Communist period from 1945 to 1991 and not the period after the country gained independence from Yugoslavia and became a democratic society.

“This development [the latest decision] was expected after the Constitutional Curt scrapped key provisions of the law, because there is no longer a legal framework for the proceedings of the Lustration Commission,” Tome Adziev, head of the commission, said.

Adziev said that if parliament adopted a new draft Lustration Law that is already in procedure, they will look again at the 15 cases.

But some members of the commission oppose the planned new law, saying that the draft recently submitted to parliament by the ruling VMRO DPMNE party is flawed.

“The solicitor that wrote it [the new draft] is either an amateur or works against the interests of the country, because this would place Macedonia among those countries that massively violate human rights,” Cedomir Damjanovski warns.

Janakie Vitanovski, another member of the commission, agrees that the new law “will not be applicable because this is the third time that the same decisions are being proposed, although they have been deemed in conflict with the constitution”.

The law, aimed at purging former police informants from public office, was originally passed in 2008 on the behest of Nikola Gruevski’s government. But the process soon came under fire from critics who accused the ruling party of using the law to target its opponents.

Under the law people who found to have been former collaborators are to be stripped of office. The commission has so far pronounced over 30 people as former informants.

http://www.balkaninsight.com/en/article/macedonia-court-scraps-lustration-findings

The accusations of political influence are fueled by the fact that of the three officials known to be facing removal under the law all are political opponents of the governing party. One, Vladimir Milcin, a theater director and head of the Open Society Foundation in Macedonia, has appealed the lustration commission’s decision to expel him from his position as a university professor. The foundation is one of the largest financial supporters of civil society and anti-corruption organizations in the country.  http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/25/

The new Law on Lustration – an instrument for dealing with opponents
Foundation Open Society – Macedonia (FOSM) organized a round table on April 12, with a topic on the draft amendments to the Law on lustration and their impact in the process of verification of the facts.During the first part of the debate, Dance Danilovska presented the new amendments included in the draft law on lustration, and the most radical new amendment is the one extending the timeframe to September 1, 2006 instead of until 1991, i.e. from the moment the Law on access to public information comes into force. On the other hand, it was concluded that the amendments discriminate against those who would be deemed as associates, by announcing them publicly. Also, with the changes regarding the persons who are subject to the law on lustration, the state would directly interfere in the work of the NGO sector and limit the right to employment in the private sector. According to university professor Gordan Kalajdziev, with the law on lustration, the verification of facts becomes an inquisitorial procedure in which there is no plaintiff, and there is no proving procedure. The new amendments to the Law are contrary to the recommendations of the Council of Europe (CoE). Aside from the timeframe, which according to the Council of Europe should not be extended after 1989, the level of evidence is also a problem, because it should be much higher than the level of evidence in other criminal cases, and the lustration itself should only apply to those public servants that can directly threaten human rights (civil servants in the police, judiciary, etc.). Stojan Andov, one of the proposers of the Law, noted that the previous version was adopted by consensus by all parties, and said he expected the new version to be supported by consensus. Analyzing the amendments, Cedomir Damjanovski, member of the Commission for verification of facts, stressed that the Commission will have technical problems in finding whole family trees of those who have acquired more than five percent of the capital of a state enterprise because except them, their families are also covered by lustration. According to Damjanovski, the publication of the Commission’s decisions on a website may harm a person who is subject to lustration, because the decision – although not final, will be publicly announced.During the last part of the debate, a comparison was made of the work of the services before and after 1991, as well as their method of recruiting associates, and creating records of the associates. The conclusion was that a lot of room was left for abuses of records, many of which are found in private collections. It was also stated that associate relations have never been penalized anywhere, because it was difficult to prove the awareness and intention of the associate in violating someone’s human rights. On the other hand, the perpetrators from these services and persons who issued orders are not included by the law, i.e. those who knowingly violated the human rights and freedoms. Analyzing the new law, and the entire system, Gjuner Ismail stated that the system building laws such as the Law on lustration, should be approached differently, and not through an academic attempt for dialogue.

Thaci Laments EU’s ‚Coldness‘ Towards Kosovo

 

Prime Minister says Brussels is not responding with much enthusiasm to Kosovo’s attempts to expedite its path of integration towards the EU.

Fatmir Aliu

 Pristina

 

Kosovo’s Prime Minister, Hashim Thaci, has complained about Brussels‘ approach towards the country’s European Union aspirations, saying that Kosovo is not being judged by the same standards used with other countries in the region.

Speaking on Monday, Thaci said that EU delays and the non-recognition of the country by five EU member states – Spain, Romania, Greece, Slovakia and Cyprus – were not justifiable.

“The delays by Brussels are unjustifiable,“ he said. „Kosovo is not asking for a privileged treatment or for an accelerated processes [of EU integration]. We simply ask for equal treatment to the rest of the Western Balkans countries,” Thaci said.

On March 27 the EU launched a study to determine whether Kosovo is ready to sign a Stabilization and Association Agreement, the first step on the long road to Brussels.

The study will make an inventory of where Kosovo stands in terms of its political, economic and legal environment, and will assess what Kosovo needs to achieve to negotiate and implement an SAA.

Thaci on Monday handed ministers a set of 450 questions from the EU for the Feasibility Study. He asked them to answer the questions by May 21, so they can be handed over to the European Commission by June 8.

Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008 and has been recognised by 89 countries, including the US and 22 EU member states.

Thaci said that since the country declared independence, Kosovo had worked hard to approach European structures but “unfortunately the response of Brussels was cold and the processes have been lengthy.

“The EU should not tolerate any black holes in the European continent. The principle of freedom of movement is an asset upon which the EU has been built, and we are not asking for anything other than the free movement of people, goods and ideas and equal treatment,” he said.

All Western Balkans countries, except Kosovo, have been granted visa-free travel to the EU. But when launching the EU-Kosovo visa-liberalization dialogue, Enlargement Commissioner Stephan Fuele said that the success of the process depended on Kosovo’s performance in the areas of trade, reform of public administration, rule of law, and the integrations of the Serbian minority in the north.

The European Commission will send  a team to Pristina on June 18 on a fact-finding mission to verify the answers it received from the questionnaire it handed to Kosovo.


A damning report alleging Kosovo’s Prime Minister was a mafia kingpin linked to organised crime and organ trafficking , has received the unanimous backing of The Council of Europe’s Legal Affairs Committee. Western nations are also accused in the document of knowing about the alleged activities of Hashim Thaci. But it’s only now that the EU-backed police force in Kosovo says it’s ready to look into the claims.

Kosovo president rejects code that criminalises libel

09/05/2012

Two controversial articles of the Kosovo penal code that threatened media freedom created significant domestic and international opposition.

By Safet Kabashaj for Southeast European Times in Pristina — 09/05/12

After a sustained protest from journalists and media watchdogs, Kosovo President Atifete Jahjaga on Tuesday (May 8th) rejected a proposed law that would have criminalised libel and allowed journalists to be jailed if they didn’t reveal their sources.

In a statement, Jahjaga called the proposals contrary to Kosovo’s Constitution. She sent the proposed penal code back to parliament for review and changes.

Journalists welcomed the decision.

„The parliament of Kosovo has always had one point in mind: legal regulations should support the work of journalists,“ Oliver Vujovic, secretary general of the Vienna-based South East Europe Media Organisation, told SETimes.

„Journalists are a strong power for the democratic development of Kosovo, and politicians in parliament should understand it. This draft was a small mistake by the parliamentarians, and mistakes are part of the work, and I believe that the parliament of Kosovo will now work on a better document.“

Arben Ahmeti, head of the Association of Professional Journalists of Kosovo (APJK), commended journalists and international organisations for resisting the proposed law. „APJK assesses that with such a decision, press freedom in Kosovo is saved, which was seriously jeopardised by the content of actual code,“ he told SETimes.

Violations under the proposed code were punishable by a prison sentence of at least three years. That provision, and the requirement that journalists reveal their sources, was strongly criticised by local journalists, civil agencies, the Association of Professional Journalists of Kosovo, as well as SEEMO and the international media watchdog Reporters Without Borders.

The government proposed the laws despite warnings by journalists and media watchdogs that it would significantly erode the already precarious media freedom in Kosovo.

Kosovo journalists boycotted news of state institutions on May 3rd, World Press Freedom Day. Daily newspapers published „Stop Playing“ on their front pages in a traffic-like sign and did not cover the institutions‘ activities nor broadcast them.

„If this law were effective two months ago, I would be obliged to reveal the source of my story, something that would be against the principles of a free press,“ freelance journalist Kastriot Jahaj told SETimes.

An official sued him for defamation after he exposed the official’s corrupt practices, but a Pristina court found Jahaj not guilty.

In an attempt to prevent the revised law from taking effect, media representatives met with Jahjaga and asked her not to sign it nor return it to parliament.

Justice Minister Hajredin Kuqi sent a letter of support to the media calling on Jahjaga to send the law back to parliament and promised to lobby there to reject the two controversial articles. Kuqi promised to resign if the law had gone into effect, even though his ministry sponsored the proposal in parliament.

Ahmeti says he was not convinced that Kuqi can deliver the draft law without the articles directed against journalists.

„The journalist community will itself continue the fight against attempts to limit press freedom,“ he said.

The electoral board members told B92 that the voting would continue since the incidents happened outside the polling station and that the election process was not jeopardized.

“Police intervened in another polling station in Novi Sad where an electoral board member smashed a ballot box,” City Electoral Commission (GIK) President Predrag Zagorčić told reporters.

He added that the incident occurred in the Novi Sad’s neighborhood of Vidovdansko naselje and that the voting continued soon after.

Opening of seven polling stations in Novi Sad was delayed for about an hour due to technical problems, GIK told Beta news agency.

Albanian University Quizzed Over Bossi Diploma

Questions are growing over the diploma that the son of the Italy’s right-wing Northern League leader, Umberto Bossi, received from an Albanian university.

Renzo Bossi, a.k.a ‚the trout‘

Doubts have emerged over the business management degree obtained by Renzo Bossi from Tirana’s Kristal University.

The issue of the questionable diploma has emerged as Italian prosecutors investigate his politician father for alleged abuse of party funds.

According to the Italian daily La Repubblica, Renzo’s degree was found in the safe of the treasurer of the Northern League, Francesco Belsito, in a folder named “the family.”

Umerto Bossi, founder of Northern League, resigned as party leader last month after a corruption scandal hit the party.

Based in the wealthy north, the Northern League is known for its hostility to southerners and foreign immigrants. Albanians living in Italy have been frequent targets.

But antipathy towards Albanian immigrants seems to have not stopped Bossi’s son from seeking a degree in Albania.

According to the Italian media, Renzo took his degree from Kristal University on September 29, 2010, passing 29 exams.

Doubts have been raised about how he managed to be admitted to the college and finish his three-year-degree, having only obtained his Italian high school diploma a year earlier.

Renzo Bossi had earlier failed his high school final exam in Italy several times, leading his father to complain that he was being discriminated against for his political ideas.

There is also no record that Renzo ever attended Kristal University.

In a statement to the media on Thursday the college denied that the diploma was a fake and said Bossi’s admission had met the requirements of Albanian law.

“Renzo Bossi was admitted on the basis of the documents that he presented during the academic year 2007-2008, in accordance with Albanian legislation,” the university said.

    In Albania, Can a U.S. Diploma Deliver?

    TIRANA, ALBANIA — Rising above the dingy back streets of the Albanian capital, the silhouette, instantly recognizable, shines out like a promise: the Statue of Liberty, symbol of America, land of opportunity — and also the logo of the University of New York, Tirana (U.N.Y.T.), where students pay more than $32,500 for what a sign in the lobby describes as “the only real European and American education” in the country.

    On its elaborate Web site, U.N.Y.T. paints a glowing picture of students enjoying a typical American university experience — complete with student union, college sports, and campus social life — without having to ever leave Albania. Although known locally as “New York University-Tirana” — the name listed on its official charter from the Albanian government — the school has no connection with the campus in Greenwich Village. Nor does it have a dining hall, dormitories, gym, or stadium — the Web page covering sports has been “under construction” for more than a year. The photograph of a library, featured on the cover of the school’s handsomely printed brochure, was in fact taken elsewhere, school officials concede.

    But the classes are in English. And thanks to an arrangement with the State University of New York this private Albanian institution does offer its 650 students the chance to acquire an American diploma. By paying the for-profit U.N.Y.T. an extra $100 per credit, for the first three years plus an additional $5,000 for the final year, students can graduate with a degree from Empire State College, a division of SUNY based in Saratoga Springs devoted to adult education and nontraditional learning.

    Known by various labels — “validated” or “franchised” degrees, “supported programs,” or branch campuses — such arrangements between universities in the United States, Britain or Australia and various private providers in the developing world have become increasingly common.

    While students in Tirana seem satisfied, critics say that with a revenue structure based on tuition fees, and an admissions process subject to the need to recruit paying customers, all too frequently these arrangements deliver the form, but not the substance, of an academic education.

    Armand Kapllani, a 2007 Empire State/U.N.Y.T. graduate now studying at Southern Methodist University in Dallas said that many of his courses were pitched at the level of an American high school. “We didn’t even learn how to use a financial calculator. You are graduating with a degree in finance and you don’t know how to use the calculator,” he said.

    But Gavin Lowder, director of international programs at SUNY Empire State, says U.N.Y.T. is held to “the same academic guidelines as the rest of the college. There are no separate standards for our Tirana program.”

    Konstantine Giakoumis, U.N.Y.T.’s deputy rector, said in an interview that “the curriculum is jointly drafted and approved by committees of both universities.”

    On a recent visit to the Albanian campus, SUNY’s influence seemed more like a label than an active presence. The overwhelming majority of courses are taught by local faculty members hired without any input from SUNY, who also have little say over the content. Of 15 Empire State courses offered in the autumn 2011 catalogue, only three appear to be taught by instructors with doctorates. “Our teachers are not SUNY faculty. Not directly,” said Mr. Giakoumis. Empire State College, he added “does not have centrally managed exams.” Instead exams are set and marked by the faculty in Tirana.

    Faculty members teaching SUNY courses “are expected to be approved by the program director,” Mr. Lowder said in an e-mail. “As part of the approval process, résumés are reviewed and approved. Where possible, faculty are interviewed prior to the semester,” he said. But he admitted that faculty teaching U.N.Y.T. courses “are not subject to Empire State review or approval.” For example, Mr. Giakoumis holds a bachelor’s degree from Athens University and a doctorate from the Center for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies at the University of Birmingham, yet teaches both U.S. History and Diplomatic History.

    Asked about the claim that the school offers an “American education,” school officials said that “the description is echoing the university’s concerned and concentrated efforts to adopt the best models from well-established American universities.

    Mr. Kapllani said a group of three to four faculty members from SUNY visited the campus “once — or maybe twice — a year.”

    According to Mr. Lowder, a team from Empire State last visited Tirana in October; the second visit this year is scheduled for the end of February. “Because of budget constraints, the program director does not make visits outside of the team visits unless absolutely necessary,” he said.

    To students, what matters is the credential the prestige of an American degree. And on that score Mr. Kapllani had no complaints. “I had a wonderful time there when I was a student. A degree from U.N.Y.T. is quite respectable and it opens many doors in Albania,” he said.

    Anisa Vrenozi, currently a junior, said “My studying experience in this university has been an excellent one, and I think I have made the best choice choosing this university.”

    But Philip Altbach, director of the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College, says student satisfaction may not be the right measure. The demand for American or British credentials is so high, regulation so lax, and the opportunity for profit so tempting that when universities “balance their educational missions against their business interests” education often loses, he said. American universities, he said, had “a special responsibility to make sure we live up to our own standards” in any overseas venture.

    On paper, the 13-page Memorandum of Understanding between SUNY and the University of New York, Tirana, supplied on request to a reporter, appears to spell out high standards. Although students can take as many as 96 credits, or about three years’ worth of courses, from U.N.Y.T. and need only 32 SUNY credits to graduate, all students “must fulfill the specific requirements set forth in the E.S.C. guidelines for the degree and the specific major.”

    These include SUNY’s general education requirements and all pre-requisite courses for a student’s chosen major. Albanian faculty members teaching E.S.C. courses appointments are subject to joint approval by both institutions. Student progress is also monitored by both institutions, and Empire State’s Academic Program Director is “authorized to review grade distribution in all courses and for all faculty.”

    On the ground in Tirana the picture is less reassuring. Although the memorandum describes both schools as “partners,” the precise nature of the relationship between SUNY and U.N.Y.T. is difficult to pin down. U.N.Y.T. is itself part of the New York College Group — logo: the Statue of Liberty in blue silhouette over the initials NYC — a Greek company with outposts in Athens and Thessaloniki and other branches in Prague and Belgrade.

    William Lawton, director of the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education, a London-based research institution that monitors academic exchange, said “there are different levels of control, from validation and franchising up to branch campus. Basically in franchising the home institution provides the curriculum; in validation they don’t.”

    ……..

    But in the past year “validation” has become a badge of dishonor in British academic circles because of a series of scandals at the University of Wales, which was shown by the BBC to have validated bogus degrees at Fazley International College, a university named after its founder, a Malaysian pop star, and to have allowed students at Rayat London College, a private school offering University of Wales M.B.A. courses, to pay for qualifications. The damage to its reputation was so great that the university, founded in 1893, closed its doors in October.

    According to Judith Eaton of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation in Washington, U.S. universities “do not have the legal authority to accredit or otherwise sanction (‘validate’) the awarding of a degree by another institution.” Any joint arrangements “would come within the purview of accrediting organizations” that review the home campus, she said.

    Empire State College, like the rest of SUNY, is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, based in Philadelphia. Richard Pokrass, a spokesman for the organization, said in an e-mail, “SUNY/Empire State College is accredited by our Commission, but University of New York, Tirana, is not. UNY-Tirana is approved by our Commission as an ‘other instructional site‘ for SUNY/Empire State College.”

    Asked whether the accreditors had ever seen his campus, Mr. Giakoumis said “I believe inspectors travelled to Greece and Prague, but not to Tirana.” Mr. Pokrass later confirmed that “‘Other instructional sites’ are typically not visited.”

    On a brief visit at the end of January, a reporter watched Keler Gjika listlessly take a class on Advanced Finance through practice questions from Damodaran online, a popular Web site maintained by Aswath Damodaran, a professor at the Stern School of Business at New York University.

    As students stared inertly at the projected screen images, the exercise seemed a long way from an American classroom — and also in striking contrast to the atmosphere at the European University of Tirana, another private college on the other side of the city. All the classes there were in Albanian, but the lively discussion in classrooms and cafeteria, and the well-stocked — and busy — library suggested an institution where curiosity was as important as credentials.

    Despite its offering only an Albanian degree, the rector, Tonin Gjuraj, said the school had no trouble filling its 2,500 places. “Albania was a poor countsaid Mrry. An isolated country. People are eager to get ahead,” . Gjuraj, a former Albanian ambassador to Israel.(Albanian Diplomat Mafia) Darjel Sina, who teaches law, described the school’s tuition of $3,300 a year — or $7,900 for a three-year course for those who pay in cash — as “not cheap. But it’s not expensive.” For popular fields like medicine, law or finance, the competition at Albania’s public universities, where tuition is $200 to $530 a year, is intense. The large number who fail to secure a place guarantees a demand for private providers.

    Kevin Kinser, an expert on cross-border education at SUNY Albany (which is not connected to E.S.C.), said the U.N.Y.T. connection with Empire State College “is a way of developing legitimacy — a branding issue. The conflict comes into it when the public institution asks, why should we devote any attention to serving individuals outside our constituents? What we’ve found in our research is that if it’s out of state, it’s out of mind.”

    Although both Mitch Leventhal, SUNY’s vice chancellor for global affairs, and Gavin Lowder, the director of Empire State College’s international programs, declined to be interviewed, Mr. Lowder did answer questions by e-mail. “This program is not funded by taxpayer dollars,” Mr. Lowder said. “It is a self-funded program. In addition, the program provides opportunities for Empire State College faculty to have international experience, which enhances teaching and learning.’‘ He insisted that faculty “are hired only in consultation with E.S.C.” and that the curriculum “is in accordance with college guidelines.”

    It is also profitable. For every four-credit Empire State course offered at U.N.Y.T. collects $1,200 — the price is fixed in dollars — of which it keeps $384. The balance is passed along to SUNY, along with 68 percent of portfolio fees ($315), orientation ($50), telecommunication ($100 per term) and an assessment fee for transfer credits of as much as $1500. This year, U.N.Y.T. enrolled 111 students in Empire State courses; there are similar arrangements for New York College’s campuses in Greece and the Czech Republic.

    With no investment needed for buildings or teaching staff, and the promise of regular returns, such arrangements are increasingly popular with cash-strapped Western universities. In Albania, a country still emerging from long years of isolation under the Stalinist dictator Enver Hoxha, U.N.Y.T.’s promise of “a guarantee for your future” will always find plenty of takers. But as Mr. Lawton, of the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education, warns, “the financial risk is inverse to the risk to reputation.”

    “SUNY is at the leading edge of commercialization, but in these days of financial pressure others will be close behind,” said Philip Altbach. By relying on self-assessment, he warns, “American accreditors are leaving the fox to regulate the chicken coop.”

    Kosovo: Americans first to withdraw their soldiers from KFOR

    Americans first to withdraw their soldiers from KFOR

    At the moment there are about 6,000 soldiers in Kosovo/Metohija. In countries that they are coming from, there is pressure that they return home. The strongest criticism is in Germany, the country that presently has 1,900 of its soldiers deployed in KiM. The reason for cutting of contingent is in the costs. The American contingent shall most like be cut to minimum during next year.

    However, permanent political and security instability is reality in Kosovo/Metohija and that is why the local Serbian population is of the opinion that cutting of the number of soldiers is a dangerous process. For example, there were almost no incidents in the Village of Osojane during presence of the Spanish contingent there. After the Spaniards left in 2008, thefts and attacks have become permanent. Few months ago a local Serb was killed.
    The truth is that the KFOR remained in Kosovo/Metohija longer than initially planned. This UN mission is assigning its authorities in continuity onto local security bodies. The latest example is the case of the Devic Monastery earlier guarded by the French soldiers and today by Kosovo police.
    ‘There is permanent criticism that KiM costs more than it should. On the other hand the mission might turn out to fail since peace is not guaranteed here. Additional problem is that the present engagement of this number of soldiers is higher than it should be’, ‘Blic’ source from the mission says.
    The question of engagement of the German soldiers is presently on agenda of the German Bundestag. In one of the most recent letters there is written that a part of German soldiers is under huge pressure because they have been deployed there for more than a year and a half. Kosovo Albanians do not hide that they would like the complete KFOR leave except the Americans whom they see as a guarantee for their safety. At the moment the American contingent has 600 soldiers and there is no doubt that their presence shall be cut to minimum.
    ‘The American contingent is not interested in taking part in daily activities of the KFOR. On the other hand however, Americans would like to keep their presence in Kosovo. Nevertheless, cutting of the number of soldiers can be expected next year after election of new administration’, Blic source says.
    To Brussels there is another fact is far more important and it is that the EULEX mission has turned out to be unsuccessful. Also the communication between the KFOR and the EULEX is not at a desired level. As Blic learns, the KFOR does not restrain from sending such information in messages to its command….

    Albanian Secret Service Chief Fatos Klosi in 16.5.1998 in der “Albania” durch den Albanischen Geheimdienst Chef Fatos Klosi: KLA (UCK) is financed by Bin Laden

    Foreign Intelligence Services Have Information For Connection Of Ex-Leader Of Army For Kosovo Liberation Hasim Taqi With Osama Bin Laden Belgrade, February 11, 2002 – Foreign intelligence services, including the US one, have information for the connections of the ex-leader of the Army for Kosovo Liberation /AKL/ Hasim Taqi with Osama bin Laden, the today’s edition of Glas javnosti daily says. The
    ex-chief of the Albanian National Intelligence Service Fatos Klosi
    confirmed bin Laden has been in Albania in the 90-ies where he had
    organized training camps for the AKL fighters.

    The candidate for President of Kosovo and leader of the Democratic
    Union of Kosovo Ibrahim Rugova also has information in regard of the
    connections of Taqi with bin Laden. After the announcement of the
    election results Rugova promised to make public the evidences for the
    terrorist activity of its political opponent.

    The “friendship” between Taqi and bin laden has begun in 1996.
    According to the sources of the daily, in the period 1996-2001 bin
    Laden has invested some USD 200 M in activities, related to different
    criminal deals in Kosovo.

    Story of the Day 2001-10-24       Interpol has information that the Albanian terrorists have links with Al Qaida organization and its leader Osama Bin Laden, London-based newspaper the Independent reads. The Independent reports that Interpol’s investigation team was claiming that Osama Bin Laden was related to the Albanian criminal gangs, which have wide network of trafficking in weapons and people, prostitution and racketeering throughout Europe. Interpol also has information that recently people from the Albanian criminal circles met with leaders of the Algerian terrorist organisations. The Albanian police reported that Osama Bin Laden was also present at that meeting. According to information from Interpol, one of Bin Laden’s military commander was appointed for head of the elite terrorist units of the Kosovo Liberation Army, during the Kosovo conflict in 1999

    http://www.southeasteurope.org

    A combination of chaos and poverty in Albania paved the way for Bin Laden to move in. The Times of London quoted Fatos Klosi, the head of the Albanian intelligence service, who said that bin Laden sent terrorists to Kosovo. Using the front of funding a “humanitarian agency,” bin Laden muscled into Albania as far back as 1994.

    Kosovo Terror Training Camps Re-Open for Syrian Rebels

    by grtv

     

     

    A delegation of Syrian rebels has made a deal with Pristina authorities to exchange experience of partisan warfare. Syrian opposition is sending militants to Kosovo for adopting tactics and being trained to oust President Bashar Assad’s regime.

    On April 26, a delegation of Syrian opposition members made a stop in Pristina on their way from the US to hold talks on how to make use of the experience of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in Syria, reports Associated Press.

    So far, a poorly-organized Syrian opposition has proven unable to self-organize and form a steady front against the forces of President Assad. Terror tactics used by militants allow them to kill military and governmental officials, but do not help to hold positions against a regular army.

    “We come here to learn. Kosovo has walked this path and has an experience that would be very useful for us,” says the head of the Syrian delegation Ammar Abdulhamid, a Syrian-born human rights activist and dissident. “In particular, we’d like to know how scattered armed groups were finally organized into KLA.”

    Syrian opposition leaders have promised to immediately recognize Kosovo once they seize power in the country.

    “We’re in vital need of joint actions as a coalition opposition,” stressed Ammar Abdulhamid, a long-time opponent of the Syria’s President Bashar Assad. In 2005, he left Syria to settle in the US.

    The training camp on the Albanian-Kosovo border that has welcomed Syrian attendees was originally organized by the US to help the KLA train its fighters.

    The Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) was considered a terrorist organization by the US, the UK and France for years until, in 1998, it was taken off the list of terrorists with no explanation given. The KLA used to have up to 10 per cent of underage fighters in its ranks.

    There were numerous reports of the KLA having contacts with Al-Qaeda, getting arms from that terrorist organization, getting its militants trained in Al-Qaeda camps in Pakistan and even having members of Al-Qaeda in its ranks fighting against Serbs.

    The same horrors that were witnessed during the war in Kosovo are now apparently being prepared for the multi-confessional Syrian population by Islamist Syrian Liberation Army trained in Muslim Kosovo in the middle of Europe.

    The Syrian Liberation Army group that actually formed the delegation to Kosovo has been fighting with the Syrian government for over a year now. This stand-off has claimed well over 9,000 lives, about half of them Syrian servicemen, law enforcers and officials.

    Lately, the militants have been squeezed out of the Syrian cities and their positions along the Syrian-Turkish border. Being unable to turn the tide independently, the Syrian Liberation Army has been addressing to its foreign sponsors to start a military intervention into Syria to topple President Bashar Assad.

    However, researcher and GlobalResearch.ca contributor Benjamin Schett told RT the Syrian rebels would not learn much in terms of military tactics from the KLA.

    “The so-called Kosovo Liberation Army – this terrorist group – had in fact already been defeated by the Serbian army in 1998.”

    Schett says that once Serbia agreed on a ceasefire, pulled back troops, and let in OSCE observers, the KLA used this situation to intensify their attacks so as to provoke a military reaction.

    He continued that by presenting themselves as freedom fighters and victims to the Western media, the KLA secured a Western intervention in March 1999 after they staged a fake massacre in Račak.

    Schett believes the Syrian rebels would go to Kosovo for knowledge in public relations techniques. He says despite their lack of military prowess, they were adept at making the Western public believe they were fighting for a justified cause amid reports they had committed a slew of war crimes and human rights abuses.

    Marauder and ethnic-cleansing tactics

    Wiping out local minorities after an extensive NATO air-strike were the only combat tactics the KLA had mastered and the only thing the Syrian opposition can really learn from them, foreign affairs editor for the US-based Chronicles magazine, Srdja Trifkovich, told RT.

    RT: Just what might the Syrian opposition learn at these camps?

    Srdja Trifkovich: Well, first of all I don’t think they can learn much from the KLA veterans in terms of combat efficiency because the KLA was singularly unsuccessful in its rebellion against the Serbian security forces until the NATO bombing. They started their terrorist ambushes in 1997. They intensified their activities in 1998. But all along it was atrocity management that they wanted, for instance, the famous case of Racak where the combat victims were presented as innocent civilian dead slaughtered by the Serbs.

    But even during the bombing the Serbian forces maintained full control of all of the key population centers and they even kept the roads open. It’s only that the KLA came in after the Serbs started withdrawing under the terms of the ceasefire with NATO. And even then they were not engaging in combat, they were acting as marauders ethnically cleansing non-Albanians. So the first point is that there is nothing to learn in terms of combat efficiency and in terms of actually organizing a successful guerilla force.

    RT: Words that have been associated with the KLA – assassination, terror, bombings – is that really the kind of thing that the Syrian opposition wants to be associated with?

    ST: It seems that they don’t care, because I understand that Ammar Abdulhamid, one of the Syrian opposition leaders who came to

    Macedonian police have pressed terrorism charges against five people for the gruesome murders of five people in Skopje on April 12, three of whom have been arrested.

    Police Minister Gordana Jankulovska said on Wednesday that the authorities have charged five men for the brutal murders on the outskirts of Skopje, three of whom have been arrested.

    The three men, all ethnic Albanians, were seized during yesterday’s police raids.

    “Two of them are at large” and are believed to have fled to neighbouring Kosovo, the minister said.

    Police believe that three of the men carried out the killings and two helped them escape from the crime scene.

    Not revealing the identity and ethnicity of the alleged murderers, Jankulovska only said that two were brothers from Skopje aged 32 and 33 and one other was 27. Local media reported that the suspects are Alil Demiri, Afrim and Agim Ismailovic.

    The European Union delegation to Macedonia on Wednesday urged the authorities to bring the killers to justice “regardless of the ethnic or religious background of the victims and perpetrators”.

    The bodies of Filip Slavkovski, Aleksandar Nakjevski, Cvetanco Acevski and Kire Trickovski, all aged between 18 and 20, were discovered on April 12 near Zelezarsko Ezero on the northern outskirts of the capital, a popular fishing destination.
    The bodies had been lined up and appeared to have been executed with firearms.

    The body of 45-year-old Borce Stevkovski was a short distance away from the rest.

    The news of the killings raised tensions in the ethnically divided country after rumours spread that the killers were ethnic Albanians.

    On Tuesday police rounded up 20 allegedly radical Muslims in an operation in several villages around the capital. During the raids they seized firearms and other weapons, some of which they believe were used in the murder.

    Those not directly implicated in the Skopje killings will now face lighter charges for illegal possession of weapons.

    Macedonia’s head prosecutor, Ljupco Svrgovski, said his office will demand the severest penalties for the murder suspects. “When it comes to such grave crimes the law prescribes life in prison,” Svrgovski said.

    All main political parties have expressed support for moves to solve the case.

    The country’s junior ruling party, the Democratic Union for Integration, DUI, said that ethnic Albanians should not be collectively blamed for the murders.

    Macedonian police have asked Interpol to step in after two of the five suspects it believes killed five persons near Skopje fled the country.

    Police arrested three of the men in raids this week, namely Agim Ismailovic, 32 Fejzi Azirij, 54, and Rami Sejdiu 24.

    But Interpol’s help may be needed to track down Alil Demiri, 27, and Afrim Ismailovic, 33, both from Skopje.All five are ethnic Albanians.

    The earlier three were arrested in Tuesday’s police operations around the capital and now face murder and terrorism charges.

    An investigative judge in Skopje has meanwhile detained for 30 days nine of a group of 20 alleged radical Islamists, all ethnic Albanians, whom police arrested on Tuesday in relation to the murders.

    A woman in whose house the police found an arsenal of weapons was released the same day while the court released the other ten arrested men after 48 hours.

    The brutal slaying of five men near the capital on April 12 raised ethnic tensions between Macedonians and the large Albanian minority after rumours spread that the killers were Albanians.

    Police discovered the bodies of Filip Slavkovski, Aleksandar Nakjevski, Cvetanco Acevski and Kire Trickovski, on the northern outskirts of the capital at a popular fishing destination.All the victims were aged between 18 and 20.

    The body of 45-year-old Borce Stevkovski was a short distance away from the rest.

    On Thursday police minister Gordana Jankulovska said that they had determined all the circumstances about the murders but would wait for the trial before revealing details.

    Presheva, protest against arrests

    Presheva, protest against arrests

    Thousands of Albanians from the Presheva valley gathered to protest against the arrests undertaken by the Serbian Police.

    The protesters held slogans against the arrests made on what they called mounted charges for terrorism or war crimes.

    “The propaganda in Belgrade is that every Albanian is a terrorist, hence we say that we are all terrorists”, declared one of the organizers.

    The Serbian Police has arrested eight Albanians at the Presheva Valley, five of whom on war crime charges and three others of petty crimes. The Serbian Interior Minister, Ivica Dacic, warned that the arrested people are related with the 2001 war of the Liberation Army for Presheva, Medegia, and Bujanova (UCPMB).

    Official Tirana reacted after the arrests at the Presheva Valley. The Albanian Foreign Ministry condemns the arrests:

    “Returning the rhetoric and accusations during the campaign, for the so called war crimes in Kosovo, only for political benefits, damages the democratic standards and the inter-ethnic coexistence in the country”, the reaction says.

    This Friday, the Prishtina government considered the arrests as something that damages peace and stability in the entire region.

    The three fishermen who testified told the court hat they were near the murder site at the Smiljkovsko Lake on the night of April 12, 2012, when five people were killed.

    They said they saw armed men approaching them.

    “When it started to get dark, we headed home… A man appeared dressed in black, [wearing a] bullet vest and [holding] a gun in his hands. He asked us our names and told us to run or he would kill us,” Ahmet Bekir testified.

    Another fisherman, Kemal Nesim told the court that while they were running, he heard gunshots coming from the lake.

    The prosecution claims that the killings were a terrorist act intended to provoke ethnic turmoil and the case has raised tensions in the country.

    So far, four of the six defendants, Agim Ismailovic, Fejzi Aziri, Rami Sejdi and Haki Aziri, have pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges.

    They were held when police arrested 20 allegedly radical Muslims during an operationlast May in several villages around the capital.

    The two other suspects, Alil Demiri and Afrim Ismailovic, remain at large.

    When discovered, the bodies of Filip Slavkovski, Aleksandar Nakjevski, Cvetanco Acevski and Kire Trickovski, all aged between 18 and 20, were laid out in a line and appeared to have been executed.

    The body of 44-year-old Borce Stevkovski was found a short distance from the others.

    The fishermen said they saw other armed men at the site but failed to recognise any of the four defendants in the courtroom…….
