Kosovo James Bond auf Afghanistan Mission: Behgjet Pacolli

 Die Erlebnisse von Behgjet Pacolli mit der UN in Afghanistan sind identische wie von Leuten wie Chr. Hörstel, Todenhöfer usw..

Der Kosovare Behgjet Pacolli weiß doch wie jeder im Balkan und in Asien genauso, das die UN ein inkomptentes Etwas von Nichts ist, wo sich Unfähigkeit, Unterschlagung und Betrug zum Standard gehört. Die Kosovaren haben diese Betrugs Truppe ja 10 Jahre schon live erlebt, als Partner von Westlichen Betrugs Experten, die nicht einmal wissen, warum sie eine Existenz Berechtigung haben.

 

UN ‘did nothing to help hostages’

April 2nd, 2009

 

[Original article]

THE millionaire Kosovan businessman who negotiated the release of Annetta Flanigan in Afghanistan has criticised the United Nations for ignoring her plight Behgjet Pacolli, who offered $1.5m (€1.13m) to the kidnappers in the days before the release of Flanigan and two other UN workers, said that the organisation had been extremely passive, and had effectively deserted Kabul during their captivity  Flanigan, from Richhill, Co Armagh, is still in the Afghan capital being debriefed and recuperating. She will fly to Dubai with her husband Jose Aranaz for a holiday within days. Friends say the couple hope to spend Christmas with her mother in Northern Ireland.

There is a deepening mystery about the manner of her release and a fear among some western officials that a ransom may have been paid.

The UN is maintaining its security status in Kabul at the same level as at the time of the kidnapping.

Last night Pacolli refused to comment on a ransom. He described the kidnappers as “dilettantes” and “bandits” who held the captives only “a few metres, a kilometre at most” from where they had seized them in Kabul.

Flanigan and her fellow captives — Angelito Nayan, a Philippines diplomat, and Shqipe Hebibi of Kosovo — told the UN that their experience was by turns terrifying and surreal.

They played cards with their captors to build up friendships. They gave their captors nicknames according to the length and colour of their beards. At night they were sometimes moved on foot to new houses and often feared they were about to be killed as deadlines were set by the captors for their demands to be met.

Speaking from his home in Switzerland, Pacolli said: “The United Nations was a very passive organisation in this case. For the festival of Eid (when hostages are traditionally released) many staff from the UN had gone out of the country. People who were in charge of the security were not in Kabul. Three hostages were in the hands of bandits and nobody was in the UN.”

Afghans hopeful on hostages

Behgjet Pacolli, a businessman from Kosovo who says he is a relative of Hebibi’s, told The Associated Press that Hebibi made a satellite telephone call to a friend in Kosovo on Monday. The message was passed to her family, he said.

“She said she feels good and she will be soon with them in Kosovo,” Pacolli said.

Pacolli, who met former President Burhanuddin Rabbani on Monday, said he conveyed a message to the kidnappers via “influential people” and received an answer. He said that he expects “success” but that no ransom is being offered.

The kidnappers of three U.N. workers in Afghanistan said the government agreed terms for their release on Wednesday, but there was no confirmation and a top U.S. official said a deal would encourage hostage taking.

The kidnappers from a Taliban faction have threatened to kill Annetta Flanigan from Northern Ireland, Shqipe Hebibi from Kosovo and Filipino diplomat Angelito Nayan unless 26 Taliban prisoners, some of whom may be in U.S. custody, were freed.

Mullah Sabir Momin, one of several men claiming to speak for the Jaish-e Muslimeen (Army of Muslims), told Reuters the group had talks with the government and U.N. officials via intermediaries on Wednesday.

“The intermediaries told us that the government has accepted our demands. [… read more]

Kommentar: Wo sind nun wieder die 3 Millionen € geblieben aus der BMZ Betrugs Kassen, für diese Universität! Herr Oke Frahm-Reindell, war nur ganz kurz für wenige Monate in Durres und ist schon lange wieder weg!

Grosse Ankündigung und wieder wird es Nichts mit der Betrugs Show der sogenannten Deutschen Entwicklungs Hilfe des BMZ!

Peinlich wird es dann, wenn 3 Millionen € angeblich an die Uni für eine GTZ Kooperation gingen! Angekommen ist dort nämlich praktisch Nichts!

Das Vorhaben “Postsekundare Berufsausbildung, Berufsakademie’” unterstützt den Aufbau einer Berufsakademie an der Universität in Durres. Der Begriff “postsekundar” bedeutet, dass bei dieser Ausbildungsform auf eine berufliche Erstausbildung aufgebaut wird. Das Programm ist Teil des Förderschwerpunkts Nachhaltige Wirtschaftsentwicklung.

3 Millionen € und davon 2,9 Millionen € direkt in die eigenen Taschen umleiten ist dann so eine Art Vorbild Funktion der Tätigkeit der GTZ.

Die Kosten für den verantwortlichen Leiter dort Herrn
Oke Frahm-Reindell, können ja wohl mit Sicherheit nicht 3 Millionen betragen!http://www.bmz.de/

Bei dem angeblichen Universitäts Aufbau der Uni Phristina, welche im Desaster endete, wurden ja auch Millionen an einen Deutschen Professor überwiesen mit dem Erfolg: Der gute Prof. nahm gern die Geschencke und den Service der Albanischen Mafia an und das Projekt wurde dann beendet, weil der hoch dotierten Voll Idiot mit Deutschen Professoren Titel die Region verlassen musste, nachdem die Visa Beschaffung für die Albaner Mafia in Phristina zum Haupt Geschäfts Zweig der Deutschen Berufs Verbrecher wurde.

New York Times: “Albanians were selling their sisters for money,”

On Speedboats, Albania’s Sex Trade Could Flare


Matt Lutton for The New York Times

An abandoned fishing boat on a beach in Vlore, Albania, a city known for being a hub for human trafficking across Europe.

VLORE, Albania — It was only after her trafficker sealed her mouth with electrical tape, drugged her and threatened to kill her family that the childlike woman, now 27, says she realized that the man she had planned to marry had seduced her with a terrible lie.

Her journey at age 18 from an Albanian village to a London brothel, where she said she spent five years working as a prostitute, began with a gold engagement ring, the promise of a better life abroad and — like many before her — a speedboat trip to Italy under the cover of night.

So many women, men and children had been trafficked abroad to work as prostitutes, forced laborers or beggars that the Albanian government three years ago barred all Albanian citizens from using speedboats, the favored transportation used by traffickers to get people out of the country.

This drastic measure, coupled with stricter border controls and revenge killings of traffickers by victims’ families, had a significant effect, reducing trafficking by more than half and all but ending Albania’s role as a major transit point for people trafficked to Western Europe from eastern and southern parts of the Continent, say experts who follow trafficking.

But the ban prompted loud protests from fishermen and people in the tourism industry, and in May it was reversed. Law enforcement and human rights officials are concerned that as a result, human trafficking may explode anew — at an especially difficult time.

The financial crisis, many experts said, could increase human trafficking around the world. A United States State Department report in June warned of the potential risk, saying that the crisis is causing “a shrinking demand for labor and a growing supply of workers willing to take ever greater risks for economic opportunities.”

In the case of Albania, a poor, southern Balkan country that joined NATO in April and seeks to join the European Union, the government’s ability to fight trafficking is viewed as a critical test.

For victims like the woman from the small village, ensnared by the false promises of her trafficker, that fight is a matter of survival.

“I was in love with him, I dreamed of living my life with him, but it was all a big lie,” she said in a recent interview at a shelter for trafficking victims. “I wanted to run away, but in the eyes of the law, I was a prostitute with fake documents. Where was I to go?”

She said the man who abducted her had gained her trust over months, then locked her in a room and took her passport and cellphone. She said he beat her and cut her with a penknife, a warning of what he would do if she tried to escape. She said she was forced to be a prostitute in London and in Antwerp, Belgium. To cover their tracks, the man’s family had called her parents and said that the couple had moved to neighboring Kosovo.

The woman would not provide her name for fear of retribution from the trafficker, making it impossible to corroborate her story with the police report she said she had filed against the man. But the coordinator and director of the shelter where she is staying have reviewed the details of her case and vouched for her credibility.

At the height of the trafficking, experts estimate, thousands of women, men and children were taken to nearby Greece and Italy and elsewhere for sexual exploitation or forced labor.

The United Nations estimates that 12.3 million people globally are employed in sexual servitude or forced labor. Many are lured by fake engagements, real marriages or false job offers. In some cases, victims have been sold by their families. Others go voluntarily.

Even with the speedboat ban last year, the State Department said in its June report that in 2008, Albania did not comply with “the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking,” although it made “significant efforts to do so.” The report said corruption remained pervasive.

In June 2007, the Ministry of Interior arrested 12 police officers accused of human trafficking in three cases, including six officers with direct responsibility for anti-trafficking enforcement.

Albanian law enforcement officials say that help from other countries in getting evidence to convict traffickers is often lacking. Iva Zajmi, the anti-trafficking coordinator at the Ministry of Interior, stressed that as a result of legal or tolerated prostitution in countries like Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, many trafficked women were not identified as victims in those countries.

“The legalization of prostitution has created a wall behind which traffickers can hide and repress victims,” she said.

Trafficking took root in Albania in 1991, in the aftermath of the fall of Communism, and for nearly 10 years, traffickers worked with impunity in the absence of trafficking laws. The problem peaked in 1997 as a financial pyramid scheme shook Albania and pushed the country to the brink of civil war.

“Albanians were selling their sisters for money,” said Ilir Yzeiri, an Albanian writer who made a documentary on human trafficking.

In 2004, the government created courts to try trafficking cases and passed tough trafficking laws, including prison sentences of up to 15 years for traffickers.

But human rights experts say prosecutions are too rare, partly because many victims are afraid to testify. Last year, 22 trafficking cases were prosecuted, according to the State Department report, fewer than half the number prosecuted in 2007.

Brikena Puka, the executive director of Vatra, an outreach group that has helped trafficking victims, said prosecutions were scarce partly because many victims were being tried for prostitution. In some cases, women are jailed after having been deported from other countries.

“Trafficked women are being victimized twice,” she said. “First by the traffickers, then by the Albanian justice system.”

Even if they want to press charges, trafficked women who were interviewed say it is extremely difficult to escape from their captors, who are part of an organized international network.

The trafficking victim who shared her tale recalled that her trafficker had contacts in each city they visited. She said the trafficker also employed a forger, who provided fake documents.

She thought she would finally be freed when her trafficker was arrested in London in 2006 and deported to Albania. Instead, she said, his brothers and their wives, who were in London, put her back to work in the sex trade. She said at times she would make more than 1,000 euros daily, about $1,400, but was never allowed to keep it….

Schiesserei mit Wahhabiten in Mostar

17. Juli 2009, 12:36

Offenbar bosnische Wahhabiten verwickelt – Laut Augenzeugen prügelten Jugendliche und eine Wahhabiten-Gruppe aufeinander ein – Ein Mensch in Lebensgefahr

Sarajevo – Bei einer Massenschlägerei in der herzegowinischen Hauptstadt Mostar, in die offenbar Wahhabiten verwickelt waren, sind fünf Personen verletzt worden, eine davon lebensgefährlich. Laut Augenzeugen brach der Streit und die anschließende Schlägerei in der Nacht auf Freitag zwischen einer Gruppen von ultrareligiösen muslimischen Wahhabiten, die aus der naheliegenden Moschee kamen, und Jugendlichen vor einem Cafe im Stadtviertel Luka aus. Die Polizei bestätigte die Involvierung der strenggläubigen Sunniten zunächst nicht.
Der Wahhabismus ist eine vor allem in Saudi-Arabien starke puritanische Auslegung innerhalb des sunnitischen Islam, die u.a. die Unterteilung der Welt in „Ungläubige“ und rechtgläubige Muslime predigt. Die Präsenz der Wahhabiten in Bosnien wird vor allem mit dem Krieg (1992-95) in Verbindung gebracht, als auch viele islamische Freischärler aus dem Ausland ins Land kamen, um in den Reihen der vorwiegend bosniakischen (muslimischen) Armee zu kämpfen.
Geteiltes Mostar
Mostar ist seit dem Bosnien-Krieg 1992-95 de facto geteilt: Im Osten leben Bosniaken, im Westen katholische Kroaten. Die Stadt war in der ersten Hälfte der 1990er Jahre Schauplatz schwerer Kampfhandlungen. Im kroatischen Stadtteil befand sich der Regierungssitz des illegalen Separatstaates „Herceg-Bosna“, auf den die Kroaten im Dayton-Abkommen verzichten mussten. Von den rund 75.000 Einwohnern Mostars sind etwa zwei Drittel Bosniaken.
Die zum UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe gehörende Alte Brücke (Stari most) von Mostar, im 16. Jahrhundert im Auftrag von Sultan Süleyman II. („Soliman der Prächtige“) vom berühmten Baumeister Hayrudin über der Neretva erbaut, wurde 1993 von kroatischen Militärs zerstört und inzwischen wiederaufgebaut. Die Stadt, die vor dem Krieg den höchsten Anteil an ethnisch gemischten Ehen in ganz Jugoslawien aufwies, wurde als Symbol des Tito-Vielvölkerstaates von den Kriegsherren erbarmungslos beschossen.

Nine Serbian Tourists Killed in Egypt

Nine Serbian Tourists Killed in Egypt

Belgrade | 16 July 2009 |

 


Nine Serbian tourists were killed and eight others injured in a bus crash early on Thursday morning near the town of Safaga in Egypt, the Serbian ambassador to Egypt, Dejan Vasiljevic, confirmed.

„Our embassy in Cairo was notified by local officials that 17 Serbian passengers were on the bus, 14 adults and three children,“ Radio Television Serbia quoted Vasiljevic as saying.

The injured have been transferred to the Ali Ahli Benk hospital in the Egyptian capital Cairo. The hospital director, Serif Makawi, told reporters all eight patients were in stable condition.
The Serbian tourists were travelling with Perla tours from the town of Novi Sad. A Perla tours spokesperson, Jelena Djukic told Balkan Insight that they have been requested not to give any information about the accident but that they are in touch with Serbian consulate in Egypt and will have more details soon.

According to Agence France Presse, more than 8,000 people lost their lives in road and rail accidents in Egypt during 2008 due to lax traffic regulations and poor road conditions.
Serbian President Boris Tadic visited the wounded after the Non-Aligned Movement summit which took place in Egypt.

The Serbian government has declared a day of mourning.
