CIA Chief Sees Unrest Rising With Population

Swelling populations and a global tide of immigration will present new security challenges for the United States by straining resources and stoking extremism and civil unrest in distant corners of the globe, CIA Director Michael V. Hayden said in a speech yesterday.

The population surge could undermine the stability of some of the world’s most fragile states, especially in Africa, while in the West, governments will be forced to grapple with ever larger immigrant communities and deepening divisions over ethnicity and race, Hayden said.

Hayden, speaking at Kansas State University, described the projected 33 percent growth in global population over the next 40 years as one of three significant trends that will alter the security landscape in the current century. By 2050, the number of humans on Earth is expected to rise from 6.7 billion to more than 9 billion, he said.

“Most of that growth will occur in countries least able to sustain it, a situation that will likely fuel instability and extremism, both in those countries and beyond,” Hayden said.

With the population of countries such as Niger and Liberia projected to triple in size in 40 years, regional governments will be forced to rapidly find food, shelter and jobs for millions, or deal with restive populations that “could be easily attracted to violence, civil unrest, or extremism,” he said.

European countries, many of which already have large immigrant communities, will see particular growth in their Muslim populations while the number of non-Muslims will shrink as birthrates fall. “Social integration of immigrants will pose a significant challenge to many host nations — again boosting the potential for unrest and extremism,” Hayden said.

The CIA director also predicted a widening gulf between Europe and North America on how to deal with security threats, including terrorism. While U.S. and European officials agree on the urgency of the terrorism threat, there is a fundamental difference — a “transatlantic divide” — over the solution, he said…………..

Deutsche und Amerikanische Soldaten sichern die Heroin Plantagen in Afghanistan

Mai 12th, 2008

Amerikanische Marines müssen in Afghanistan die Heroin-Plantagen der Taliban bewachen

Es ist bekannt, dass die im Norden Afghanistans stationierten deutschen Soldaten die Mohn-Plantagen der afghanischen Bauern nicht zerstören dürfen. Der Auftrag der deutschen Soldaten lautet schlicht, die öffentliche Ordnung zu gewährleisten. Von Rauschgiften und Mohnplantagen steht nichts in ihrem Auftrag. So schauen die deutschen Soldaten denn weg, wenn sie riesige Mohnfelder sehen. Bei den Amerikanern war das bislang anders. Aber auch das hat sich nun nach offiziellen Angaben geändert …

Amerikanische Soldaten bekämpfen in Afghanistan nicht nur den Terror. Auch die riesigen Mohnfelder weckten in der Vergangenheit ihr Interesse. Denn ein großer Teil der Mohnernte wird zu Heroin verarbeitet – und landet auf dem amerikanischen Markt. Vor diesem Hintergrund haben die Amerikaner in den vergangenen Jahren auch immer wieder große Anbauflächen von Mohn in Afghanistan vernichtet.

Nun gibt es im Internet eine Plattform, auf der amerikanische Soldaten sich austauschen und Neuigkeiten vorwiegend über Waffengattungen abrufen können. Military.com heißt die Seite. Zum Erstaunen vieler erfahren die amerikanischen Soldaten nun dort in diesen Tagen, dass selbst amerikanische Eliteeinheiten wie die Bravo Company’s 1st Platoon der Marines inzwischen neben den Mohnplantagen in Afghanistan schlafen, diese betrachten – aber nicht vernichten dürfen. Mindestens 100 Millionen Dollar kassieren die Taliban pro Jahr an »Zöllen« von den afghanischen Rauschgift-Bauern – es ist Geld, das die Taliban verwenden, um Waffen zu kaufen. Und mit diesen ziehen sie dann in den Krieg gegen die amerikanischen Soldaten. Viele amerikanische Soldaten kratzen sich nun vor Ort in Afghanistan verwundert am Kopf: Denn die Kommandeure haben ihnen gesagt, das es zur Verstimmung der einheimischen Bauern führen können, wenn man ihre Rauschgift-Felder mit dem Mohn vernichte. Und das müsse man schließlich respektieren.

93 Prozent des Heroins der Welt kommen aus Afghanistan. Ein in Afghanistan stationierter Soldat aus Ohio sagt, die Mohnfelder in Afghanistan seien wie die Kornfelder in Ohio. Man erntet auf den Feldern – und die Bauern brauchen keine Kalaschinkow bei der Arbeit zur Eigensicherung. Denn die amerikanischen Soldaten haben sich mit ihnen arrangiert. Man hat eben inzwischen Verständnis dafür, dass der Heroinhandel die einzige Möglichkeit für die afghanischen Bauern ist, Geld zu verdienen …

Der Auftrag der deutschen Soldaten lautet schlicht, die öffentliche Ordnung zu gewährleisten = Absicherung der Drogen Produktion damit im Kosovo die Heroin Labore einen gesicherten Nachschub haben, von den mit Deutschen Waffen installierten Verbrecher Systemen, War Lords und Schlächtern wie General Dostum in Afghanistan. Alles unter Kontrolle der NATO, damit die Welt mit Drogen versorgt werden kann über den Kosovo mit dem Produktions Land Afghanistan. Haupt Aufgabe der NATO ist die Absicherung der Drogen Produktion und Verteilung in der Welt.

Abchasien das Kosovo auf dem Kaukasus

GEORGISCHE PROVINZ ABCHASIEN

Kosovo auf dem Kaukasus

Von Uwe Klußmann, Moskau

Auf dem Kaukasus spitzt sich die Lage zu: Georgien und Russland könnten bald Krieg um die Provinz Abchasien führen. Der historische Konflikt in der Region wirft eine zentrale Frage auf: Ist es rechtmäßig, den Abchasen die Unabhängigkeit zu versagen, die das Kosovo erst kürzlich bekommen hat?

John McCain hat ein neues Thema: “Wir müssen Russland zeigen, dass es keine freie Hand hat, eine Politik zu betreiben, die Georgiens Souveränität untergräbt”, sagt der Präsidentschaftskandidat der US-Republikaner und frühere Frontsoldat. Was er meint: Abchasien, eine international nicht anerkannte Republik in einer bergigen Küstenregion am Schwarzen Meer.

Russische Soldaten in Abchasien (2000): Scheinautonomie innerhalb Georgiens

Die Lage in Abchasien hat sich in den letzten Monaten immer mehr zugespitzt: Ein georgischer Minister spricht bereits von einem drohenden Krieg zwischen Georgien und Russland. Auch die USA warnen Moskau vor der Eskalation. Das russische Militär hat seine Präsenz in den abtrünnigen Regionen verstärkt.Das Gebiet, rund elfmal so groß wie Hamburg, gehört nach Auffassung der Vereinten Nationen zu Georgien. Doch von Georgien ist nichts zu sehen für den, der die Grenze zwischen Russland und Abchasien am Flüsschen Psou überquert. Die Grenzer auf der abchasischen Seite sprechen russisch, ihr Gehalt bekommen sie in russischen Rubeln und nicht in georgischen Lari ausgezahlt. Über ihren Köpfen weht eine Fahne, die neben grün-weißen Streifen eine weiße Hand auf rotem Grund zeigt. “Ein Symbol eines Grußes an Gäste und Freunde”, wie Abchasen sagen.

De-facto-Staat aus der Stalin-Ära

Die Republik Abchasien hat alles, was einen Staat ausmacht, von Staatsvolk, Hymne und Verfassung über Polizei, Armee und Geheimdienst bis zu staatlichen Schulen und einer Universität in der Hauptstadt Suchumi. Nur Botschaften anderer Länder beherbergt sie nicht.

Entstanden ist der De-facto-Staat ähnlich wie das jetzt von zahlreichen westlichen Staaten anerkannte Kosovo. Bis zum Ende der Sowjetunion war Abchasien eine “Autonome Republik” innerhalb der Georgischen Sowjetrepublik, eine Konstruktion, die Stalin geschaffen hatte, der massiv Georgier in der Region ansiedeln ließ.

Nach der russischen Oktoberrevolution war Abchasien zunächst eine eigene Sowjetrepublik. Doch die Scheinautonomie innerhalb Georgiens sorgte schon bald nach Stalins Tod für Proteste der Abchasen. Als die Georgier sich ab 1989 von der Sowjetunion und damit von Russland trennen wollten, eskalierte der Konflikt. Die abchasische Bevölkerung – und mit ihnen zahlreiche Armenier – wollten in einem multinationalen Staat mit Russland verbleiben. Die Georgier hingegen betrachteten die Region als unverzichtbaren Teil ihres künftigen Staates.

Im Juni 1992 nahmen die Vereinten Nationen Georgien als Mitglied auf – in den sowjetischen Grenzen.

Georgischer Einmarsch führt zum Krieg

Am 14. August 1992 ließ die georgische Führung Truppen nach Abchasien einmarschieren, die sofort auf massiven bewaffneten Widerstand der Abchasen stießen. Die Georgier in ihrer Selbstüberschätzung hatten diese Reaktion nicht erwartet. Mit äußersten Fanatismus mobilisierte Abchasien Männer, Jugendliche und auch Frauen zum Widerstand. In eiskalten Gebirgsbächen stehend transportierten Abchasinnen Waffen in die Berge zu den Partisanen.

In einem einjährigen Krieg gelang es dem zähen Bergvolk, die georgischen Interventen zu besiegen. Unterstützung erhielten die Abchasen von den Russen und von Freiwilligen aus dem Nordkaukasus. Die Kämpfe dauerten bis Ende September 1993 und forderten mehrere tausend Tote auf beiden Seiten. Auf beiden Seiten kam es zu Morden und Plünderungen, das Verhältnis zwischen Abchasen und Georgiern war bald vergiftet.

Das Land, vor allem die Hauptstadt Suchumi, wurde weitgehend zerstört. Mehr als 200.000 Menschen, darunter die Mehrheit der georgischen Bevölkerung Abchasiens, flüchteten nach Georgien.

Seit 1994 sichern russische Friedenstruppen mit einem von der Uno unterstützen Mandat der Staatengemeinschaft GUS einen brüchigen Waffenstillstand. Unter der Präsidentschaft Wladimir Putins bekamen rund 90 Prozent der Abchasen russische Pässe – das einzige Mittel, das kleine Land zu verlassen. Die Russen verhinderten so nicht nur ein Blutvergießen. Sie sicherten auch den Status quo und damit faktisch die sich verfestigende abchasische Staatlichkeit, was Georgiens Politiker in Rage brachte.

Viele Flüchtlinge kehrten nie zurück

Nur etwa 45.000 georgische Flüchtlinge sind nach Schätzungen der Vereinten Nationen nach Abchasien zurückgekehrt, die meisten davon in den Bezirk Gali im Südosten. Denn die Abchasen lehnen eine massenhafte Rückkehr von Flüchtlingen ab, sie fürchten, die Mehrheitsverhältnisse in ihrer Republik könnten zu Gunsten der Georgier kippen.

Um diese Argumentation zu untermauern, verweisen die Abchasen listig auf das Beispiel eines vor 60 Jahren gegründeten kleinen Landes, dessen Regierung sich bis heute hartnäckig und mit Erfolg weigert, die Rückkehr von Flüchtlingen zu gestatten: Israel.

Gerade auf das Überstimmen der Abchasen aber zielt die Politik der georgischen Regierung, die der Region vage eine “weitgehende Autonomie” verspricht – bei der die Abchasen dann eine missachtete Minderheit im eigenen Land wären. Was der autoritär regierende georgische Präsident Micheil Saakaschwili von autonomen Provinzen hält, demonstrierte er im Sommer 2004. Da ließ er die Autonomie der Provinz Adscharien kurzerhand abschaffen.

Mal “Brüder und Schwestern”, mal “Barbaren”

Denn die vom Chauvinismus durchtränkte georgische Führung kann ihre Verachtung gegenüber den Abchasen nur schwer verhehlen. Zwar wendet sich Saakaschwili gelegentlich öffentlich an die “Brüder in Schwestern” in Abchasien, denen er bei solchen Gelegenheiten eine “große Kultur” bescheinigt. Die wolle er in einem “wiedervereinigten” Georgien schützen. Wie ernst solche Versöhnungsgesten gemeint ist, zeigt seine Rede vor georgischen Veteranen des Abchasien-Krieges Ende Februar.

Russischer Panzer in Abchasien (2007): Territoriale Integrität als Fiktion

Russischer Panzer in Abchasien (2007): Territoriale Integrität als Fiktion

Georgien habe die Kontrolle über Abchasien nur durch “Unfähigkeit und Verrat” verloren, tönte Saakaschwili damals – kein Wort des Bedauerns, das die von ihm umworbenen abchasischen “Brüdern und Schwestern” von der georgischen Zentralmacht mit Krieg überzogen wurden. Er werde Georgien innerhalb der nächsten fünf Jahre “wiedervereinigen”, versprach Saakaschwili. Das hatte er schon im Januar 2004 für seine erste Amtszeit versprochen.Die von den Abchasen gewählte Regierung beschimpfte er als “separatistische Führung”, die “für viele kriminelle Handlungen verantwortlich” sei. Vor jungen “Patrioten”, einer staatlich gelenkten Jugendorganisation, sagte Saakaschwili unlängst gar: “Suchumi sei “von Barbaren einkassiert” worden.

Georgiens politische Elite will nicht erkennen, dass sie in der Folge des Krieges Abchasien verloren hat – ähnlich wie Deutschland nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg seine östlichen Provinzen Schlesien und Ostpreußen einbüßte. Abchasien schlägt vor, über einen gegenseitigen Gewaltverzichtsvertrag zu verhandeln, um einen künftigen Krieg auszuschließen. Georgien ist dazu nicht bereit.

Territoriale Integrität als Fiktion

Georgiens Präsident sieht im abchasischen De-facto-Staat keinen gleichberechtigten Partner, sondern so etwas wie einen Wegelagerer. Dass unbemannte georgische Spionageflugzeuge über Abchasien fliegen, hält er für normal, da dies “über unserem Territorium” geschehe. Dabei verbietet ein Waffenstillstandsabkommen militärische Aktionen in der Grenznähe.

Im August 2006 ließ er gleichfalls unter Bruch der Waffenstillstandsvereinbarungen Truppen in den oberen Teil des Kodori-Tals im Nordosten Abchasiens einrücken, ein potenzielles Aufmarschgebiet für einen Angriff auf Abchasien. Für Saakaschwili kein Problem, gehört doch Abchasien aus seiner Sicht ohnehin zu Georgien.

Bei den Abchasen hat sich der Eindruck verfestigt, Saakaschwili wolle “Abchasien ohne Abchasen”. …………

Kosovo auf dem Kaukasus

Während die offizielle Politik der EU im Abchasien-Konflikt noch die Flagge der “territorialen Integritität” für Georgien hoch hält, die man im Kosovo schon eingeholt hat, denken manche Experten im Westen schon weiter. Die International Crisis Group kommt in einer Studie zu dem Schluss: “Die Abchasen empfinden, dass Georgien ihre Sicherheit nicht garantieren kann.”

Der deutsche Diplomat und Kaukasuskenner Dieter Boden, früherer Vertreter des Uno-Generalsekretärs für die Regelung des georgisch-abchasischen Konfliktes, kritisiert, Saakaschwilis Politik berge die “Gefahr eines neuen bewaffneten Konfliktes” in sich.

Kritisch sieht Boden auch die “doppeldeutige Rolle Russlands”, das einerseits Vermittler sein will, aber zugleich politisch starken Einfluss auf die abchasische Seite nimmt. Und der Diplomat stellt eine Frage, die in die Zukunft weist: “Ist es rechtmäßig, den Abchasen zu versagen, was die Kosovaren bekommen?”


 

 

Gefährlich sind halt die echten Kriegstreiber im Hintergrund wie der von der Albaner Mafia bezahlte John McCain und die dubiosen Gestalten von Georg Soros um den ICG! Und wenn die NATO wieder einen Krieg braucht, werden die schon Gründe wieder inzenieren und zusammen fälschen.

Die Geldwäsche auch in Kroatien über Immobien und Baufirmen

Mai 9th, 2008

Auch in Kroatien ist vor allem der Immobilien und Baufirmen die Drehscheibe für Geldwäsche auch aus Terroristischen Quellen.

Trotzdem sollte die EU eher mal in der eigenen Haustüre kehren, u.a. in Bulgarien, Rumänien im Kosovo Protektorat, wo es um wesentlich höhere Geldsummen der Geldwäsche geht.

Und in Albanien wurden 18.5 Milliarden € Geld gewaschen im Immobilien Sektor und trotzdem stoppte lange Zeit die EU nicht die Entwicklungs Gelder, wobei die meisten Aufbau Gelder sowieso von einer EU Beratungs und Aufbau Mafia unterschlagen werden.

Council of Europe reports on Croatian anti-money laundering measures

09/05/2008

Real estate and the construction industry are easy targets for those seeking to launder money, a Council of Europe committee warns.

By Natasa Radic for Southeast European Times in Zagreb — 09/05/08

“Croatia will do everything necessary to adopt and implement the European legal framework, especially in anti-money laundering cases,” Prime Minister Ivo Sanader said. ]

The Council of Europe’s (CoE) Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures and the Financing of Terrorism (MONEYVAL) has published its third-round evaluation report on Croatia. It evaluates the implementation of international and European standards in combating money laundering and terrorist financing.

The government received a detailed assessment, discussing each finding along with the suggested course of action in areas where progress has been inadequate.

According to CoE experts, Croatia’s legal framework lacks concrete implementation measures. “There is a lack of efficiency and willingness to trace the roots of ‘dirty money’, and punish those trying to legalise illegally obtained money,” the report says.

“Croatian authorities do not pay enough attention to money laundering, which is used for different purposes,” it adds. “The grey zone of real estate and construction industry are easy targets for such operations. Though Croatian institutions delivered anti-money laundering laws ten years ago, there have been only two such trials.”

Two factors — overloaded courts and a lack of expertise – are cited as possible reasons for the long delays. Both problems “appear to be remediable through appropriate training of the judiciary and prosecutors”, the authors say.

The CoE experts estimate that in 2005 Croatia lost 500,000 euros to organised crime, while economic crime in general cost the country about 170m euros.

Efforts to crack down on funding for terrorists also fall short, the experts warn. “Croatia will have to do more to tackle terrorist financing in a satisfactory manner. Financing of terrorism is only to a very limited extent provided for as an autonomous offence, and moreover, the preventive law currently addresses the prevention of terrorist financing in an insufficient way,” the report says.

The Croatian media has been reporting on portions of the document, with sensational headlines describing Croatia as a “safe haven for money laundering”. The government has yet to issue an official response. Prime Minister Ivo Sanader, however, says generally that Croatia “will do everything necessary to adopt and implement the European legal framework, especially in anti-money laundering cases.”

Rector Kule, Dean Stringa, Distinguished guests,
I have spoken here in Albania on a number of issues. Most of them have been topics that make me very happy. Albania’s NATO invitation, the independence of Kosovo, even a little bit on Albanian culture and history. Today’s subject unfortunately is not one of those happy subjects; today’s subject is corruption.
Today we are releasing the findings of a USAID-funded survey, conducted by Director Pasha’s institution, on corruption in Albania. The survey tracks both the perception and experience of corruption by ordinary citizens. The news unfortunately is not good. According to the survey, 92% of Albanians says corruption is widespread among public officials and that is a decline of 8 points form a year ago. The report shows no progress in bribery indicators. Nearly 70% of people surveyed report paying a bribe for medical treatment. Nearly 60% have little or no trust in the judicial system. By a 3 to 1 margin, Albanians do not think the judges are impartial when conducting trials.

U.S. Ambassador to Albania John L. Withers

“The political elite of this country must take charge in fighting corruption in a meaningful way not just through speeches and words,” said ambassador John L. Withers.

“One important straightforward step that can be done is to change the immunity law, which protects senior officials in courts, in Parliament and in other offices from prosecution,” Withers added.

“They should be as liable to prosecution as any Albanian citizen,” he said.

Withers asked the political leadership to empower the institutions that seek justice; empower the prosecutors who go after the criminals; and, should make clear that whoever the suspect is, regardless of wealth, regardless of family ties, regardless of political connections, is subject to prosecution.

At the end of last month, Albania’s Prosecutor General asked Parliament to lift the immunity of former Defence Minister Fatmir Mediu amid a probe into March’s deadly army depot blasts outside Tirana. Read more: http://balkaninsight.com/en/main/news/9711

HONORING OUR HEROES

Remarks by Shirley Cloyes DioGuardi at the Ded Gjo Luli Celebration

Bronx, New York, April 5, 2008

We are gathered here tonight in the name of Ded Gjo Luli, one of the great Albanian revolutionary heroes in the fight for Albanian freedom. And we are gathered here just a few days after another great Albanian hero, Ramush Haradinaj, was released from jail.

It is important to honor our heroes. But if we really want to honor our heroes, I think that we must be careful not to get trapped in talking about them and in talking about the past. Instead, I think that we need to get energized about talking about our present and the challenges that lie ahead of us. And, after that, we need to get beyond the talk and begin working to address the problems that must be resolved to fulfill the national cause.

I am sure that everyone in this room would agree with me that one of the biggest challenges that we face is that Albanians in Montenegro are not free. In 2001, after Slobodan Milosevic was safely in The Hague, I made the decision that the Civic League had to enter Montenegro. (We could not think about this before the indictment and extradition of Milosevic, because Joe [DioGuardi] had been banned by Serbia.) I knew that the problems faced by Albanians in Montenegro, like the problems faced by Albanians anywhere else in the Balkans, could not be solved without help from the U.S. government, specifically from the U.S. Congress. I also knew that, because no one in Congress in 2001 knew anything about the realities of Albanians in Montenegro, we had to start by educating Members of the House and Senate and our media about the subjugation of Albanians in Montenegro and their century-long struggle to overcome waves of expulsion, genocide, forced assimilation, and economic and political marginalization at the hands of hostile Slavic-dominated regimes.

There is no time to go into detail tonight, but what ensued were five years of work (and by the way, the Civic League works on a completely volunteer basis; no one gets paid) that included writing articles, lobbying Members of Congress, organizing and sending two Civic League-sponsored Congressional delegations to Albanian lands in Montenegro (one with Congressman Tom Lantos in 2003 and another with Congressman Dana Rohrabacher in 2005), a Congressional hearing on “The Future of Albanians in Montenegro,” followed by a vigorous effort, with Congressman Lantos, to fight, albeit unsuccessfully, the passage of the Capital City bill and to restore the communal status of Tuzi.
…………….
And that battle continues to be played out in our struggle to free the fourteen Albanians who were arrested, tortured, and jailed in Montenegro in September 2006. Regrettably, our State Department appears to be acquiescing to Montenegro, even though four of the prisoners—Kola Dedvukaj, Rrok Dedvukaj, Sokol Ivanaj, and Doda Lucaj—are Americans.

Our job is not yet done. And Albanian Americans have a special opportunity to help, because none of us have the power to solve the problems of Montenegro on the ground in Tuzi, Ulqin, Ana e Malit, Kraja, and Plave-Guci, but we do have the power to influence the U.S. government, without which Kosova would not be independent today and Albania would not be joining NATO. Each of us has the power to make a difference, and no struggle for freedom can succeed without each of us revealing this power everyday. This is the best way to honor Ded Gjo Luli and all of our heroes.

Arrest of “Terrorists” Sows Discord in Montenegro

16 11 2006 Claim that Albanians plotted revolt ends political honeymoon with minority.

By Petar Komnenic in Podgorica (Balkan Insight, 16 Nov 06)

A high profile case has cast a shadow over relations between Montenegro and its Albanian minority, since police arrested a group of Albanians on September 9 on terrorist charges.

The chief prosecutor Vesna Medenica last week said the men had set up a secret organisation, The Movement for
Ethnic Albanian Rights in Montenegro, with the help of former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters, to create an autonomous Albanian region in Montenegro using force.

Medenica claimed the 14 suspects – 11 of whom are in detention, the other three are on the run – planned to carry out terrorist outrages in the mainly Albanian
Malesija area using arms smuggled in from Kosovo.

Their defence lawyers deny the charges, saying the authorities lack evidence for their claims and that the suspects made incriminating statements under duress in police custody. Albanian political leaders are also sceptical.

The 11 suspects in custody have been named as Anton Sinistaj, Sokolj Ivanovic, Djordje and Kolj Rok, Pjetro Dedvukaj, Djona Dedvukovic, Viktor Sinistaj, Zef Berisaj, Vaso Koljcevic, Viktor Dresevic and Maljota Bojovic. The other three are Doda Ljucaj, Vaselj Dedvukaj and Djon Ljucovic.

The Albanian community numbers about 40,000 out of a total population of about 620,000. Most live in the resort of Ulcinj, on the border with Albania, while around 12,000 live in Malesija. Many work abroad in Western Europe and the United States.

Historically, relations between the Albanians and Montenegrins are good and Albanian parties strongly supported the republic’s successful drive for separation from Serbia.

Hitherto, Albanian parties have limited their demands to the field of minority rights as opposed to territorial autonomy or border changes.

Attempts to stoke separatist agitation among Albanians have fallen flat. A movement launched in 2004 to demand special status for an Albanian region including Malesija, Tuzi, Ulcinj, Plav and Gusinje drew little response.

As a result, the chief prosecutor’s claim that a secret society aimed to use violence to create an Albanian region in Montenegro has caused some surprise.

In a statement last week, Medenica said that “intensive communications in the areas of Malesija, Albania and Kosovo suggested this organisation persisted in its intentions… to procure significant amounts of weapons, ammunition, military equipment and counterfeit documents, to carry out violent terrorist acts.

“In September 2006, a decision was made to launch a campaign of violence… in ….the area of Malesija, aimed at intimidating the non-Albanian population and seizing vital facilities in the Tuzi area.

“Their estimate was that the most convenient moment to spring into action was immediately after the closure of polling stations on the day of parliamentary elections held on September 10.”

The arrests took place in the early hours of September 9, a day before the parliamentary elections in Montenegro, when police stormed houses in Tuzi and Malesija and arrested the 14 people. Just days after the arrests, local media reported of possible police abuse when the arrests were made.

Dragan Prelevic, the lawyer for Kolj and Rok Dedvukaj, both US citizens, told Balkan Insight the allegations were “exaggerated and contrary to the collected evidence”.

November 1988. DioGuardi with President Regan, Congressman Rinaldo and National Security Adviser Poindexter in the Oval Office discussing U.S. foreign policy in Balkans.

IN 2011

Im Moment verbreitet der Gangster, diese Parolen für die Albanischen Terroristen und Verbrecher Kartelle. Er ist ja praktisch aus der US Politik draussen und überall abgewählt und dann kann man viel Unfug wieder verbreiten. Zu den verhafteten Terroristen, welche sogar Mörser Granatwerfer damals in 2006 hatten, verdreht er vollkommen die Fakten, wie bei dem Non Stop Land Diebstahl auch in den Albanien durch die Mafia.
böse böse
In 2005, the Civic League brought Dana Rohrabacher to Ulqin to discuss the confiscation of the most valuable Albanian property by the Montenegrin government and to Tuzi for a strategy meeting about how to oppose the Capital City bill, which was intended to place the Albanian-majority area of Tuzi within and under the complete control of Podgorica. Montenegro would become independent the following year due to a high percentage of Albanian votes, but instead of rewarding Albanians, the government would tighten the noose even further.

On September 9, 2006, the government tortured, arrested, and jailed 14 Albanians, including three Albanian Americans, Kola Dedvukaj, Rrok Dedvukaj, and Sokol Ivanaj. The Civic League would spend the next three years trying to get them out of jail, and then another year working with one of the best lawyers in London, who in January 2010, at our request filed a lawsuit in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg against the Republic of Montenegro. That suit is still pending in court, and through it we hope to provide a window into the suffering that Albanians endure in Montenegro and to demonstrate why the Western claim that Montenegro is a democracy is more an illusion than reality.

And so, where are we at the end of 2011? Land confiscation has been taking place in Plav, and Mayor Nikol Gegaj is flying a Bosnian flag in Tuzi. (Ulqin Mayor Nazif Chungu is apparently doing a good job, and let us hope that he continues to do so.) The diaspora remains fractured. The leadership in Kosova and other parts of the Balkans has never reached out to Albanians in Montenegro. There are now five Albanian parties in Montenegro, which is exactly the kind of divided political reality for Albanians that the Slavs want.

Die Fakten!

Albanians to Montenegro: End the Terror Trial Against 18 Albanians, including 4 “Americans”
Posted by Julia Gorin

While trying to figure out who the thug is here — the accused Albanians, or Montenegro — in addition to keeping in mind the Albanian track record for violently usurping land, please note that no one in the world would piss off Albanians if they didn’t have to.

Montenegro Albanians urge end to terrorism trial against 18 fellow Albanians

Four Michigan residents were among 12 ethnic Albanians convicted Tuesday of plotting a rebellion to carve out a homeland within the tiny Balkan republic of Montenegro.

The Americans of Montenegrin origin were part of a group arrested in September 2006 on the eve of a key parliamentary election in Montenegro which had just become independent of Serbia. Authorities alleged they were planning attacks on institutions in a predominantly ethnic Albanian-populated eastern part of Montenegro with the aim of creating an autonomous region.

Three of the Americans, Sokol Ivanaj and cousins Kola Dedvukaj and Rrok Dedvukaj, had lived for decades in Michigan but were on a visit to Montenegro when apprehended. A fourth American, Doda Ljucaj, was the alleged mastermind of the plot. He was born in Montenegro but lived in the United States and was arrested in Vienna, Austria, later in 2006.

The court also convicted five other members of the same ethnic Albanian group of possessing illegal weapons. The 17 were sentenced to prison terms ranging from three months to 6 1/2 years and the Americans received some of the toughest sentences.

Nr. 4: Doda Ljucaj, was a criminal CIA Mann and no news over this criminal again

Salzgitter steigt wieder in ein Albanisches Projekt ein und zwar die Kanalisation von Vlore. Allein die merkwürdige Konstruktion, als Supervisior, Italienische Firma und einer Firma aus Fiere, zeigt, das nur wieder Unterschlagungs Instrumente organisiert werden.

Absolut Alles, lassen die sich von der KfW oder der EBRD Bank finanzieren.

Zuvor ist bereits die halb staatliche Firma Berlin Wasser mit der Kanalisation von Durres-Golem-Kavaje gescheitert und der Vertrag wurde 2006 gekündigt, wegen Untätigkeit und Planlosigkeit. Der gesamte Tender war einfach damals vollkommen gefälscht und getürkt von der GTZ um Millionen mit Rodeco, Salzgitter und Berlinwasser zu unterschlagen, wie der Bürgermeister Aqif Haveriku über die Vorgänge von 2006 erklärt.

European Commission to help Albania implement reforms

06/05/2008

BRUSSELS, Belgium – The EU gave its full support to Albania Monday (May 5th) to complete reforms aimed towards integrating the country into the Union. European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso told Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha in Brussels that he needs to do more if his country wants to start negotiations to join the EU. “I assured [Berisha] of the European Commission’s help financially and in other fields,” Barroso said, adding that it is too early to set a date for Albania’s accession negotiations.

Albania, Croatia to send joint letter to NATO member states

06/05/2008

TIRANA, Albania – After receiving invitations to join NATO last month, Albania and Croatia are working together to agree on moves that will help them advance to full membership. On a visit to Tirana Monday (May 5th), Croatian Parliamentary Speaker Luka Bebic proposed to his Albanian counterpart Jozefina Topalli that they send a letter to the parliaments of NATO’s 26 member countries regarding Albania’s and Croatia’s accession aspirations. “This will help us move faster towards ratification of the agreement and to receive full membership,” Topalli said. Bebic said that they could improve relations between the two countries and “speed-up the ratification of the agreement”. (BallkanWeb, TopChannel – 05/05/08)

Kosovo: Investigate Postwar Abductions, Transfers to Albania

Kosovo/Albania: Investigate Postwar Abductions, Transfers to Albania

Official Dismissals Premature

(New York, May 5, 2008) – Additional information has emerged that bolsters allegations of abductions and cross-border transfers from Kosovo to Albania after the 1998-1999 Kosovo war, Human Rights Watch said today. The Kosovar and Albanian governments should open independent and transparent investigations to help resolve the fate of approximately 400 Serbs who went missing after the war.

The Prishtina and Tirana governments can show their commitment to justice and the rule of law by conducting proper investigations.

“Serious and credible allegations have emerged about horrible abuses in Kosovo and Albania after the war,” said Fred Abrahams, senior emergencies researcher at Human Rights Watch, who investigated human rights violations in Kosovo and Albania for the organization from 1993-2000. “The Prishtina and Tirana governments can show their commitment to justice and the rule of law by conducting proper investigations.”

The allegations became public recently in a new book by Carla Del Ponte, former chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Human Rights Watch has obtained independent information and documentation that provides credibility and corroboration of much of what Del Ponte writes about postwar abuses in Kosovo. Del Ponte’s Italian-language book is titled “The Hunt: War Criminals and Me.”  

Human Rights Watch wrote letters to Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci and Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha on April 4 to request that they open investigations into the allegations, but by May 2 neither government had replied, Human Rights Watch said. Top officials in both places publicly rejected the claims as unsubstantiated and libelous.

According to Del Ponte, the ICTY received information from “credible journalists” in 2003 that individuals in Kosovo had abducted and transported between 100 and 300 persons from Kosovo into northern Albania after June 12, 1999, when NATO forces entered Kosovo. The information was consistent with and corroborated what the tribunal had developed in house.

Human Rights Watch viewed the information the ICTY obtained from the journalists and considers it well researched and credible: seven ethnic Albanians who served in the Kosovo Liberation Army, interviewed separately, gave details about participating in or witnessing the transfer of abducted Serbs and others prisoners from Kosovo into Albania after the war.  

According to the journalists’ information, the abducted individuals were held in warehouses and other buildings, including facilities in Kukes and Tropoje. In comparison to other captives, some of the sources said, some of the younger, healthier detainees were fed, examined by doctors, and never beaten. These abducted individuals – an unknown number – were allegedly transferred to a yellow house in or around the Albanian town of Burrel, where doctors extracted the captives’ internal organs. These organs were then transported out of Albania via the airport near the capital Tirana. Most of the alleged victims were Serbs who went missing after the arrival of UN and NATO forces in Kosovo. But other captives were women from Kosovo, Albania, Russia, and other Slavic countries.  

“The information on organ trafficking
is suggestive but far from complete,” said Abrahams. “But the fact remains that hundreds of people, most of them Serbs, are reported to have gone missing after the war. The Kosovo and Albanian governments should try to determine the fates of these people by launching serious investigations with adequate witness protection.”

According to the information obtained by the ICTY, the bodies of some of the abducted individuals were buried near the yellow house and a nearby graveyard about 20 kilometers south of Burrel. Investigators from the tribunal and the UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), accompanied by an Albanian prosecutor, inspected the house in February 2004. The house had been painted white but, in a photo of the investigation site viewed by Human Rights Watch, a yellow strip was visible at the house’s base.

According to Del Ponte, near the house investigators found medical equipment used in surgery – syringes, gauze, drip bags, and medicine vials for muscle relaxant often used in surgery. Using a chemical spray, the team found evidence of significant blood stains on the walls and floor of one room, except for a clear six-foot by two-foot rectangle on the floor.

Human Rights Watch spoke separately with two people who were present during the visit of the ICTY and UNMIK investigators to the house near Burrel. Both people corroborated the story as told in Del Ponte’s book.  

Human Rights Watch also obtained a copy of UNMIK’s official report from the February 4-5, 2004 investigation, titled “Forensic Examination and Assessment in Albania,” which largely corroborates Del Ponte’s claims. The chemical spray called Luminol, the report says, revealed traces of blood in two rooms, including one spot at a right angle on the floor, which “would indicate that there may have been by [sic] a rectangular item covering this area.” In a stream bed next to the house, investigators found an empty intravenous bag, syringes, and empty bottles of medicine, which they collected as evidence.  

A tribunal spokeswoman confirmed on April 16 that ICTY and UNMIK investigators had looked into the allegations and visited the house near Burrel, but that they “could not substantiate the allegations and had no further basis on which to proceed in relation to [the tribunal’s] jurisdiction.” In response to a question, the spokeswoman said the investigators found “no reliable evidence” to substantiate the allegations.

“Collecting reliable evidence to launch a criminal prosecution and collecting evidence that adds weight to assertions are two different things, and the evidence found near Burrel clearly adds weight to the assertions,” Abrahams said. “The tribunal mandate also only covers crimes committed during the armed conflict, which ended on June 12, 1999. The alleged kidnappings and other crimes took place after that date, so that was a further obstacle to pursuing an investigation.”  

Last week, Albanian Foreign Minister Lulzim Basha dismissed Del Ponte’s allegations as “immoral” and “libelous.”

“Minister Basha should take the allegations more seriously because he knows from his own experience that there is credible evidence of cross-border transfers,” Abrahams said. “He worked for the tribunal and the Justice Department at UNMIK after the war, and personally investigated reports of detention facilities in northern Albania.”  

Human Rights Watch said it had not conducted its own investigation into the reports, beyond viewing the material presented to the ICTY, obtaining the UNMIK investigation report and speaking with two people who were present during the investigation in Burrel. But it noted the large number of persons missing from the Kosovo war – Albanians, Serbs, and other ethnic groups.
