Analysts: Burgas terror attack exposes security holes

20/07/2012

Bulgarian national security experts and analysts say that the terrorist attack in Burgas on Wednesday showed that the country was not prepared to deal with a challenge of this type.

Bulgarian authorities are under fire from local analysts over their failure to thwart Wednesday’s suicide bombing attack in the country’s Black Sea resort city of Burgas that killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian national.

„This was a tragic incident for Bulgaria,“ Professor Yuliy Abadjiev, a Bulgarian national security and anti-terrorism expert, told SETimes on Thursday (July 19th).

„It was a criminal act against the Bulgarian state with a very serious economic impact. It also came to prove that terrorists will show no mercy to any country in the pursuit of their goals, which were related to Israel in this case,“ added Abadjiev, who heads the Union of Bulgarian Commandos and the International Academy Commandos, a Sofia-based not-for-profit organistion. „The Bulgarian security forces must wake up and realise that they must be vigilant when there is a large group of Israelis in one place, and that preventive security measures must be boosted.“

Given the weaknesses in the country’s intelligence sector, the security service should focus on improving their capacity in the prevention area, Abadjiev said.

The incident occurred less than an hour after a charter flight from Tel Aviv, with 154 people on board, landed at the Sarafovo airport outside Burgas on Wednesday. About 40 of the Israeli tourists were boarding a bus that was supposed to take them to the Sunny Beach resort, when the vehicle was blown up in a suspected suicide bombing attack. Aside from the five tourists and the Bulgarian bus driver, who were killed on the spot, another 31 Israelis and a representative of the Bulgarian tour company were wounded in the explosion.

„The suicide bomber, who blew up himself, or was blown up, did not act alone,“ Abadjiev said. „Keep in mind that those people never act alone. They have to get the bomb, or explosive materials, from someone inside the country.“

Retired General Atanas Atanasov, a lawmaker of the right-wing Democrats for a Strong Bulgaria (DSB) and a former head of the country’s security services, said that Wednesday’s incident showed the security forces „complete failure“ ‚to deal with terrorist attacks….

Albania, Kosovo: Macedonian Politics Blamed for Failed Election of Judges

Macedonian Politics Blamed for Failed Election of Judges

Macedonia has failed to elect new judges, including the head of the Supreme Court, after disagreements within the ruling coalition over which candidates to support.
Sase Dimovski

Skopje

The Judicial Council, a body that elects and dismisses judges in Macedonia, failed to elect four judges to the Supreme Court and the president of the court, because none of the candidates received enough votes.

The reason, those involved say, was the lack of political agreement between the main ruling centre-right VMRO DPMNE party and its junior partner the Albanian Democratic Union for Integration, DUI. Their disagreements have already delayed a session of the Judicial Council dedicated to the election of judges for two months.

”Until the two ruling parties agree who should be elected, we cannot elect judges and the president of the Supreme Court”, said a member of the Judicial Council, who asked to remain anonymous.

The problem, according to members of the Council, appeared when the DUI insisted on the appointment of Shpend Devaja, a lawyer from Skopje, as a Supreme Court judge. Devaja is the husband of the Deputy Prime Minister Teuta Arifi, who is responsible for European integration in the Macedonian government.

Devaja argues that there is no conflict of interest, because although his wife is a senior government minister, she does not directly participate in the selection of judges.

“Divisions and disagreement between VMRO DPMNE and DUI have resulted in the cancellation of judicial appointments. It is clear that the judiciary is a hostage to politics. The Judicial Council should openly admit why it has not selected any judges,” says Ana Pavlovska Daneva, the Vice President of the opposition Social Democrats.

There were three candidates for the post of President of the Supreme Court. The outgoing President, Jovo Vangelovski, withdrew his candidacy at the last minute. Judges Lidia Nedelkova and Risto Katevenovski did not receive sufficient votes.

” We need to select a President of the Supreme Court with both moral and professional qualities”, said Bojan Eftimov, a member of the Judicial Council.

The selection of judges is made by the Judicial Council, a body of 15 members, 8 of whom are judges. The remaining 7 members are representatives nominated by the political parties and the President of the State, whose appointment to the Council must be approved by the Parliament.

Until a new President of the Supreme Court is chosen, an acting president, appointed from among the existing judges, will lead the court.

After the failure of the election process, there is speculation that the DUI is now aiming for the post of the President of the Supreme Court. The prevailing opinion is that the DUI will back the current Ombudsman Ixhet Memeti for the post.

Memeti confirmed for Balkan Insight that he had indeed been approached with the offer a move to the Supreme Court.

“My mandate as Ombudsman ends in September. I was asked to become a judge and Vice President of the court. I will think it over,” said Ixhet Memeti.

In its annual reports on Macedonia, the European Commission has frequently identified political interference and the inefficiency of the judiciary as one of the country’s major flaws on its path to EU membership.

Due to summer vacations, new elections to the Supreme Court will be announced in September.

just criminals: Opposition admits blame for Thaçi government’s long life

No “Freedom Fighters”, Just Criminals and Thugs On the preceding pages, the latest Drugs & Crime UN report offers a rarely accurate analysis of the situation among the ethnic Albanians (both next door to Serbia, in neighboring Albania, and in Serbia itself, mainly in the southern Kosovo province), which led to formation of the Albanian terrorist KLA (UCK) and to the terrorist attacks in Serbia — an unusually honest glimpse at the root-causes of Albanian insurrection and occupation of part of Serbia, impossible to find in the tons of worthless junk produced daily by the Western mainstream media. The following excerpt effectively dismantles the pompous claims of heroic “struggle for freedom and independence” and disingenuous references to the “self-determination” of an ethnic group which has already exercised its right to self-determination with the formation of state of Albania. No, it has nothing to do with “freedom”, “independence” or “self-determination”, it is all about illicit trade, crime without punishment, lawlessness, thuggery and insatiable greed. Criminals, Terrorists or Politicians? In Kosovo-Metohija, all Three. Excerpt from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime report for March 2008 [pg 52] According to an Interpol statement made before the U.S. Congress in 2000: http://www.unodc.org/documents/data-and-analysis/Balkan_study.pdf aus Balkan-Spezial

Kosovo Media Highlights

Opposition admits blame for Thaçi government’s long life (Koha Ditore)
Koha Ditore reports on the front page that at the end of the spring session of the Kosovo Assembly, the ruling coalition is left with only 59 faithful MPs. The Thaçi government is left to hope that the opposition will not join forces, otherwise it will have a difficult time governing the country until the end of its mandate. Opposition parliamentary groups have only 51 MPs. Together with MPs that don’t have parliamentary groups and some revolted MPs from the ruling coalition, however, they can form a majority in Parliament. There are already 10 MPs that don’t have parliamentary groups.

“If the opposition had been unified, this government would have had a much shorter mandate,” said AAK MP Donika Kada-Bujupi. “The resignation of this government would be good news for Kosovo. I blame our parliamentary group too for the fact that there is still no good news. But we will bring this good news for Kosovo once our leader Ramush Haradinaj returns and we will enter the autumn session [of the assembly] with a new agenda for Kosovo.”

On the same issue, LDK MP Lutfi Haziri told the paper: “It is very seldom in other countries for political minorities to govern with stability”. Haziri too blames the opposition for the fact that a minority government continues to govern Kosovo. “The government of this political minority will depend completely on how much the opposition will be unified and strong,” Haziri added.

Ban: Balkans are important for the entire world (Epoka e Re)
Ahead of his visit to the Balkans, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is quoted as saying that the region has undergone substantial transformation and has an important role not only for Europe but the whole world. The paper writes that Ban will be the first senior official of United Nations to visit Kosovo since it declared independence in 2008. According to UN Spokesperson Martin Nesirky, the Secretary General will visit the UN mission in Kosovo and will meet President Atifete Jahjaga, Prime Minister Hashim Thaçi and Assembly Speaker Jakup Krasniqi. Ban also plans to visit the Deçan monastery and Prizren.

Issue of Albanians in Preshevo to be included in Ban’s agenda (Kosova Sot)
Representatives of Albanian community in Preshevo Valley have called on UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to also visit them whilst on his Balkans tour. Analyst Refik Hasani said the community believes Ban should be acquainted with the discrimination they face from Serbian authorities.

Rohan: Decentralisation, minority communities now priority (Koha Ditore)
Former UN deputy special envoy for Kosovo status, Albert Rohan, said in an interview for Koha Ditore that there are three preconditions to resolving the situation in the north: border control, persecution of criminals in the north and Kosovo society reaching out to the population in the north. “Solution for the north can be found only based on the comprehensive status proposal,” he is quoted as saying.

He added that the focus should now shift to decentralisation and the full respect of the minority communities’ rights. “In this context, I strongly condemn repeated physical attacks on members of the Serb community, including those against returnees and visitors,” said Rohan.

Kurti: The government, a criminal structure (dailies)
Several dailies report that Vetëvendosje leader Albin Kurti accused the Kosovo Government on Sunday for mismanaging the country, for a childish position in face of international pressure, and for making compromises to the detriment of the country and its people.

“Their dirty deals are now very apparent. Never before did we have such unbelievable lies as we are seeing lately, from the so-called suicide of Dino Asanaj all the way up to the protection of Greek products. It has become very difficult to unmask the regime in Kosovo. Not because it has a big mask but because it has fallen off,” Kurti said during the fifth meeting of Vetëvendosje’s General Council.

Zëri quotes Kurti on the front page as saying that the government lied about the suicide of Dino Asanaj, former head of the Kosovo Privatization Agency.

Express reports that Kurti has called on the European Union to change its approach vis-à-vis Kosovo and no longer condition it into further talks with Serbia.

Salvation lies with internationals (Express)
Express reports in one of the front-page stories that the Kosovo Assembly is not expected to vote on constitutional amendments regarding the competencies and election of the President before the end of President Jahjaga’s mandate. Meanwhile, political parties are expecting assistance from internationals in order to continue with election reforms. Unnamed sources told the paper that the bigger parties, except Vetëvendosje, have requested the assistance of Quint ambassadors to push forward election reforms.

The Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK), the biggest opposition party, has already made it clear that it will not vote on constitutional amendments that will further strengthen the role of the current president.

Express recalls that the blockade in constitutional and legal amendments came after a ruling by the Constitutional Court that turned down an article limiting the mandate of the President.

An international official involved in the process of election and constitutional reforms told the paper that eventually all parties will agree that the ruling of the Constitutional Court must be respected. “Depending on the positions of parties, we will be ready to facilitate the continuation of election and constitutional reforms. The debate over the president’s mandate will be over by that time,” he added.

Pantic: Nikolic has a plan for Kosovo (dailies)
Illegal mayor of Mitrovica north and member of the Serbian Progressive Party, Krstimir Pantic, said his party has a plan for Kosovo but will not disclose it until a consensus between all political parties is reached. Pantic told Serbian media that since being elected, Serbia’s new President Tomislav Nikolic has discussed Kosovo in all meetings he had with international officials. “There is a plan for Kosovo but Nikolic has said he will not make it public without reaching a broad consensus from all political actors in Serbia,” Pantic said.

Serbian Ministry for Kosovo to be shut down? (dailies)
Several dailies report that Serbia’s Prime Minister-designate Ivica Dacic has indicated that the Serbian Government’s Ministry for Kosovo could be shut down. Dacic said a decision on the matter would be made soon after the need for such a ministry is reviewed.

“There are different opinions if there is really a need to have a special ministry for Kosovo, because now every ministry is handling the Kosovo problem and there is no need to say that the province is part of Serbia,” Dacic told reporters in Belgrade.

Hoxhaj: Intervene in Syria (dailies)
Kosovo’s Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj has condemned the bloody campaign of Assad’s regime against the people of Syria, where violence recently escalated with the latest massacre in the province of Hama, killing over 200 people. Hoxhaj said Syria cannot be a peaceful, stabile, and democratic nation until Assad leaves the country. He called on the international community to intervene in order to stop the bloodshed and help launch the process of the democratization of Syria.

Gërxhaliu: Prime Minister to lift cement tax measure (Zëri)
Head of the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce Safet Gërxhaliu said that since the members of the Assembly failed to agree on removing the tax on cement import, this should nevertheless be done very soon by Prime Minister Hashim Thaçi. Gërxhaliu said Thaçi should immediately lift the measure as there is an increased demand for cement during the summer months.

Balkan: Region in centre of international organ trafficking

Region in centre of international organ trafficking

14/07/2012

One consequence of the economic crisis is the sale of body parts, despite a legal ban on it.

By Katica Djurovic for Southeast European Times in Belgrade — 14/07/12

 

photoThe market for organ trafficking is shifting from the Far East and South America to Europe. One recent high profile case involved a young Macedonian who says he was drugged on the Greek island of Mikonos, only to awaken and find his kidney stolen. [Reuters]

The financial crisis in Europe has sparked an increase in the trade of human body parts, as families and individuals scramble to put food on the table. More and more people in the region are opting for this route: online classifieds are full of ads about body parts for sale, despite bans on this kind of trade.

„I am healthy, no hereditary illness, blood group 0+. I offer my kidney for financial substitution,“ read an ad on a Bosnian news portal posted by Danijel S., 33, at the end of June.

„If I sell my kidney it is going to be an investment in my future. I don’t work, my wife doesn’t work and we have a small child. With this money, I can have a normal life,“ he told SETimes.

His story is far from unique. In most ads, people state financial difficulties as the main reason for selling body parts. Harvesting a kidney poses few risks to the donor.

The New York Times brought the issue of illegal organ trafficking into sharp focus when it reported on the shift in market from the Far East and South America to Europe, especially Serbia, Kosovo, Greece and Moldova.

Though authorities in each country categorically deny the possibility of illegal organ transplantation, no one denies that people may be travelling elsewhere for surgery.

„It is possible that people travel abroad in order to meet the buyer and do the surgery over there, but in Serbia it is impossible, because of the law and because of the medical, technological and bureaucratic procedures,“ Danica Mihajlovic, of the Directorate of Biomedicine at the Ministry of Health, told SETimes. In Serbia, the penalty for selling organ is up to ten years imprisonment.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the illegal trade in kidneys is sharply expanding worldwide, and has risen to an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs, or one per hour. The UN estimates that 5% to 10% of kidney transplants performed each year are the result of organ trafficking.

Kosovo gained notoriety after an organ trafficking ring was discovered few years ago. Seven Kosovars accused of participating in this trade are on trial, accused of luring people from formerly Communist countries to Pristina, with false promises of payments up to 15,000 euros.

Montenegrin citizen Izet Luboder was arrested late last year for organising a trade of organs in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The buying and selling of organs is big business in Europe’s poorest country, Moldova. A key supplier to the world organ trade, Moldova’s kidneys are the cheapest in Europe. According to the NGO Renal Foundation, which combats organ trafficking in Moldova, a kidney costs 1,500 to 5,000 euros.

Last year, Romanian journalists discovered a network of organ sellers and buyers among medical professionals and some top hospitals. The price of a Romanian kidney is around 13,000 euros.

Not everybody thinks that the organ trade should be illegal.

Djukan D., 60, of Podgorica battled kidney failure more than ten years ago, but in Yugoslavia at that time, the waiting list was huge and prospects for survival until a donor was found were grim. That’s why Djukan went to India in 2000 where he bought a kidney and underwent transplant….

Robbers kill 8-year-old

An eight year old boy has been killed in the first hours of this morning in Vlore.

The child, his father and his brother were sleeping in the porch, when two armed persons broke in.

It was 2:30 am when the father heard the noises in the surrounding wall of the house, and found the two criminals. Not wanting to leave any witnesses behind, the criminals shot towards the father for killing him and ran.

The father says that they were both at their early twenties. After the entire family woke up, they noticed that the youngest boy was still in his bed. The father checked his son only to find out that he had taken a bullet in his head.

The family says that they had no conflict, while the police has started the investigation for finding the authors.

Corruption, a serious crime
13/07/2012


Corruption, a serious crime

The EURALIUS mission proposes essential changes in the legislation for the Court of Serious Crimes, among which is the competency of this court for treating money laundering cases and corruption, when related.

 The EURALIUS expert, Pietro Spera, underlined that the money laundering can be divided in two categories: the money laundering in mitigating and aggravating circumstances and it cannot be investigated by a usual prosecution, but by the serious crimes.

“I would make a simple proposition. If you can, you can include the money laundering and corruption in the competency of serious crimes, because it results in many cases that corruption favors money laundering. We cannot think of an efficient war in this area if we don’t include corruption together with the money laundering crime at the Court of Serious Crimes. At this point maybe it will be possible to include some articles, and if this is related with the political will, then let us see the most serious corruption forms”, declared Pietro Spera, EURALIUS expert.

As regards the amends that should be made for the competences of the Court of Serious Crimes, the Head Prosecutor of Serious Crimes, Olsian Cela, declared that they should start initially with the name of this court.

“My opinion has been that the name of this court must change. It should be a Court for the Organized Crime, because this was the profile that it has had in the last 8 years. The organized crime keeps being a problem for the Albanian society, and it will still be a problem for our society, as for any other society in the world. These are problems related with development and that derive from many reasons. As such, the organize crime demands maximal attention and dedication. It requires specialized people and many instruments at its disposal”, Cela declared.

“We must give to the structures and institutions the real shape that they have. The Court of Serious Crimes and the Prosecution of Serious Crimes are committed today in the war against organized crime, and there is nothing wrong in this kind of name. At first glance it seems that nothing changes. It’s not only that, because from this derive many other duties and commitments. There could be many new concepts for the cooperation method”, declared Edmond Rizai, director of the Directory against Organized Crime.

Where is the money? EU audits funds allocated for Kosovo

EU audits funds allocated for Kosovo

The EU has supported Kosovo with about 3 billion euros since 1999.

The European Court of Auditors (ECA) is auditing the management of EU taxpayers‘ funds allocated for Kosovo from 2007 to 2011, including the budget of the costliest European mission, EULEX. The Mission has a budget of about 150m euros annually, according to Europolitics.

The court was established in 1975, conducting the audit of EU finances as an external auditor that „acts as the independent guardian of the financial interests of the citizens of the Union.“

„This audit, like all other ECA audits, is in line with our mission to audit the EU budget, that is, to audit expenditure made through the EU budget. The audit …started in the summer 2011, and is likely to be published in early 2013,“ Aidas Palubinskas, court communications officer, told SETimes.

The Kosovo EU office said audits should be expected given the amount of EU money spent in Kosovo.

„The EU has supported Kosovo with around 3 billion euros since 1999, including the UNMIK, EULEX, and ICO structures. EU financial assistance to Kosovo has been subject to normal EU financial control and audit procedures,“ Fjolla Ceku, information and communication officer at the EU Kosovo, told SETimes.

The Kosovo daily Koha Ditore reported audit details on Wednesday (July 4th), stating that the EP is asking EULEX to be more dedicated in investigating what happened with millions of euros donated to Pristina airport and KEK, the Kosovo power company.

Radio Kosovo quoted James Duch, EP spokesperson, as saying there is a report on these two cases and others, dating since the time Kosovo was run by UNMIK, which have not been financially clarified yet.

Koha Ditore reported that EP officials talked about at least 27 corruption cases that have not been investigated, out of which are 12 serious corruption cases, including millions of misused euros.

Avni Zogiani, head of Cohu, Kosovo’s anti-corruption organisation, said a good part of the EU funds ended up in the energy sector.

„We found out that tens of millions of euros were given to some companies that have connections with politics. There was a time when these companies were selling to KEK refurbished scrap for new equipment. The equipment worked for a few days, or not at all,“ Zogiani told SETimes.

He said that even though these companies did not respect the contracts, they continued to receive tenders in the energy sector.

„I think Kosovo people should know what was spent for assistance in different sectors for their sake. It would be good to have a serious investigation of these funds,“ Zogiani said.

Balkans embraces asset forfeiture to fight organised crime

Balkans embraces asset forfeiture to fight organised crime

06/07/2012

The European Commission estimates hundreds of billions of euros end up in the pockets of criminal gangs and mafia every year in Europe. Thwarting that requires a good legal framework for confiscating criminal assets.

By Linda Karadaku for Southeast European Times in Pristina — 06/07/12

On the heels of new rules proposed by the European Commission (EC) to enable the confiscation of assets transferred to third parties and assets of a suspect who has fled, Albania swung into action last week.

Authorities seized the assets of two people on June 26th: Shpetim Kadani, who was arrested on drug trafficking charges, and Vasil Bajraktari, who was convicted of exploitation and prostitution. A joint investigation by Albania and Italy and a police operation code-named Cezar 1 led to the seizure of 4m euros in assets, including luxury hotels, land titles, businesses and apartments.

Overall, however, implementing laws on forfeiture and actually seizing properties owned and obtained through criminal activity remains a challenge in the region.

One solution, Drew Sullivan of the non-profit Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project told SETimes, is to reinvest seized assets in the law enforcement effort itself, in effect filling the war chest to fight crime. „The more they seize, the more tools they have to fight criminality. It can work very effectively,“ he said.

Kosovo does not have yet a law on the confiscation of such properties.

„The Law on confiscation of property obtained through criminal offenses is being drafted … while the confiscation of illegally obtained properties is supported by the Criminal Code,“ Astrit Kolaj, director of the press office at the justice ministry told SETimes.

Seb Bytyci, executive director of the Balkan Policy Institute, told SETimes there has been no political will for the fast approval of such a law in Kosovo. „There are some cases of confiscation of illegal assets but they are of little value. It involves mainly seizures of contraband from people living around the border areas. Many of them live below the poverty line. Therefore Kosovo’s justice system punishes the poor but does not affect the politicians becoming rich overnight.“

In 2008, neighbouring Serbia approved a Law on Seizure and Confiscation of the Proceeds from Crime. And it has worked, leading to the confiscation of properties worth an estimated 350m euros so far. The seized properties include apartments and houses, hotels, restaurants, offices, companies, cash, motor vehicles and artwork, according to Serbia’s tabloid Press.

Croatia allows the seizing of criminal assets as soon as a verdict is issued. Macedonia has amended its Criminal Code to allow the seizure of criminal assets by a larger group of people, involved in criminal activity.

Albania has approved an anti-mafia law to allow asset forfeiture through civil proceedings. In May, the Bulgarian parliament passed a law on the confiscation of assets acquired through criminal activity. It will take effect in November.

Law Breakers Turned Law Makers
——————————

¶2. © Some of the more noteworthy MPs with ties to organized
crime are:

– Tom Doshi: An SP MP from Shkoder, Doshi, singled out in
the Human Rights Report for physically assaulting a
journalist in the Sheraton Hotel, was a key figure in
financing SP electoral efforts. He is known as the richest
MP, with a declared fortune of more than $15 million and is
also suspected of trafficking narcotics. Doshi served in the
previous parliament as a DP MP, before switching sides to the
SP shortly before the election.

– Lefter Koka: Representing LSI from Durres, Koka is a
member of perhaps the most notorious organized crime family
in Albania, with ties to narcotics and human trafficking and
other illicit activities.

– Sokol Oldashi: Olldashi, the current Minister of Public
Works, Transport, and Telecommunication and DP MP from Fier,
is suspected of smuggling goods and narcotics.
Circumstantial evidence links Olldashi and Fatmir Kajolli in
Fier to Minister of Justice Enkelejd Alibeaj in a scheme to
release prisoners from jails to act as electoral bullies.

– Lulzim Basha: According to one SP source, FM Basha, who
represents the DP in Elbasan, was involved in facilitating
the release from prison of a notorious criminal in Elbasan in
return for support from the criminal’s family. Relatives of
the criminal promised to „organize“ people in Elbasan to
support Basha. The criminal was released on June 29, the day
after the elections.

– Paulin Sterkaj: The 48 year old DP MP from Shkoder is a
former professional wrestler with little to no formal
education. Sterkaj was previously in the SP and has been
accused by a former friend of murdering a politician in
Shkoder a few years ago. Sterkaj claims to have business
interests in oil, restaurants, and construction, but little
is known about his activities.

– Gramoz Ruci: SP MP and party General Secretary, Ruci has
long-standing ties to narcotics traffickers and organized
crime. Ruci has also been banned from entering the U.S.
since 2005 due to a permanent visa ineligibility.

    Albania Minister Vows War on Drug Barons

    New Minister of Interior Flamur Noka on Thursday admitted that stopping the cultivation of drugs was a challenge – but promised a war without tolerance or compromise.

    “The cultivation of narcotics in the country remains one of the key challenges facing the state police and the community,” Minister Noka told the general directorate of police.

    “This should be a war without tolerance or compromise until Albania vanishes from narcotics cultivation maps,” he added.

    Noka took office only a few days ago, following a government reshuffle after the election of ex-Minister of Interior Bujar Nishani as Albania’s President.

    In the last six months alone, police in the southern region of Gjirokastra, which borders with Greece, have sequestered 2.4 tones of cannabis grown in the village, while they have seized at least five times more at border crossings.

    Most of the seized cannabis comes from the village of Lazarat, known as Albania’s drug capital and a place notorious for its general lawlessness.

    According to the 2011 US State Department International Strategy for Narcotics Control report for Albania, the country’s Adriatic Sea ports, porous land borders and under-financed and poorly managed counter-narcotics measures make the country an attractive transit point for drug-trafficking.

    Law enforcement in Albania is also under-equipped and vulnerable to corruption.

    Cannabis production for the European market continues in the remote mountain regions of Albania, according to the report.   http://www.balkaninsight.com/en/article/drug-cultivation-in-albania-a-problem?utm_source=Balkan+Insight+Newsletters&utm_campaign=445c132d67-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email
     

    Funny Serbian Jokes: „Gendarmes‘ new oath focuses heavily on Kosovo“

    Gendarmes‘ new oath focuses heavily on Kosovo
    SOURCE: B92
    BELGRADE — The largest unit of the Serbian police (MUP), the Gendarmerie (Žandarmerija) has a new oath, that its members take as they start their service.

    (Tanjug)

    (Tanjug)

    The text of the oath is almost entirely centered on the importance and defense of Kosovo.

    The unit’s commander, Bratislav Dikić, is its author. Its representatives explain that the oath contains metaphors „in the spirit of Vidovdan“ – St. Vitus Day, which was on Thursday marked as the unit’s day.

    „This is a pure metaphor. We wished to, in the spirit of Vidovdan, return to history and remember the Kosovo heroes, and that day as the day of the Kosovo heroes, and in line with that, it was said, ‚either we will win or die‘. It has nothing to do with the change of government. Kosovo has always been important to this unit, since it was formed until this day,“ Gendarmerie PR Stanica Puzović was quoted as saying. 

    As far as the author of a film about the now disbanded Special Operations Unit (JSO) Filip Švarm is concerned, the oath is a „clumsy attempt at creating unity and solidarity“: 

    „I think this is now an indicator of patriotism, especially in this political moment that has been created in Serbia. In other words, we are patriots, we will never recognize Kosovo, we will stick to the Constitutional preamble and stress the mythical, poetic importance of Kosovo.“ 

    However, Milan Antonijević, a lawyer and a human rights activist, was unpleasantly surprised for two reasons: the focus on belonging to and fighting only for the Serb people, and the mentioning of Kosovo as the only thing that matters. 

    „That is worrying especially when you see that this unit will be deployed also in multi-ethnic areas, that it will come in contact with other nations, that it must function in Serbia such as it is, that Serbia is not only Kosovo. The Constitution speaks about how Serbia is arranged, that there are other nations that live here, and we cannot rely only on that preamble when we are creating an oath for the people who will defend this country in way they should,“ said Antonijević. 

    Meanwhile, the Gendarmerie has some 3,000 heavily armed officers in its ranks, who are under effective command of one man. Some 600 of them belong to a special detachment that is in its structure and organization more similar to the military than the police. 

    The unit was established in 2001, and draws on the tradition of the pre-WW2 Gendarmerie. 

    Below is the full text of the new Gendarmerie Oath: 

    Kosovo is my mother
    My origins are in Kosovo
    My ancestors come from Kosovo
    My history is in Kosovo
    My Serb nation was born in Kosovo
    My Serbia was created in Kosovo 

    Without Kosovo, I have no mother
    Without Kosovo, I have no origins
    Without Kosovo, I have no ancestors
    Without Kosovo, I have no history
    Without Kosovo, my Serb nation does not exist
    Without Kosovo, my Serbia does not exist 

    To the Serb people, to my brothers and sisters
    I vow, before God
    I will either be victorious, or meet honorable death
    For my honor
    For my origins
    For my family
    For Serbia. 

    With faith in God, for the Honorable Cross and Mother Serbia.
    Long live Serbia! http://www.b92.net/eng/news/society-article.php?yyyy=2012&mm=06&dd=29&nav_id=81027
