UN Berichte und wie man das OK-Reporting im Kosovo Mafia Staat betreibt

Juni 7th, 2008

Man beachte wie laecherlich die UN Reports unveraendert faelscht und verantwortlich die der Chef der kriminellen Bande im Kosovo: Joachim Rueckers – SPD Er hat wie bewiesen ist, einen UN Bericht unterzeichnet, indem im Kosovo die Korruption gering sei! Gehts noch laecherlicher Herr Rueckers!

Hauptroute für Heroinschmuggel

Der Chef des UN-Büros für Drogen und Verbrechen, Antonio Maria Costa, sagte in Brüssel, der Balkan lasse die Ära hinter sich, in der Demagogen, Geheimpolizei und Schurken vom Schmuggel von Waffen, Drogen und Menschen gelebt hätten. Es zeige sich, dass die Region in den letzten 15 Jahren nach dem Zusammenbruch des Kommunismus und der Bürgerkriege beim Zerfall Jugoslawiens einen dramatischen Wandel durchgemacht habe. „Dadurch hat organisiertes Verbrechen um sich gegriffen. Konventionelle Straftaten gegen Eigentum oder Gewalt gegen Personen sind erheblich zurückgegangen. Es bleiben ernste Probleme wie Korruption und Verbindungen zwischen Politik und organisiertem Verbrechen. Wir sind aber zuversichtlich, dass die Annäherung an die EU diese Straftaten verringern wird”, so Costa. Trotzdem gebe es immer noch Bedrohungen für die Stabilität der Region, heißt es in dem UN-Bericht weiter. Der Balkan sei immer noch eine Hauptroute für den Schmuggel von Heroin aus dem Nahen Osten nach Westeuropa. Die rund 80 bis 100 Tonnen Heroin, die jedes Jahr über diese Route kämen, hätten einen höheren Wert als das Bruttoinlandsprodukt mancher Kleinstaaten am Wege.

Epizentrum für Menschenhandel

Olli Rehn, der Erweiterungskommissar der EU, kritisierte, dass die Statistiken, die die Vereinten Nationen verwendeten, nicht alle der Lebenswirklichkeit entsprechen. Positive Zahlen bei einzelnen Delikten seien schön und gut, so Rehn, aber “das ist natürlich kein Grund zur Nachlässigkeit, denn das organisierte Verbrechen ist ein ernstes Problem auf dem Balkan. Seine Nebeneffekte wie Korruption bedrohen sowohl die Wirtschaft als auch die öffentliche Sicherheit.” Polizeibehörden in der EU sähen den westlichen Balkan als Epizentrum für Drogenschmuggel und Menschenhandel in Europa. Olli Rehn sagte weiter: „Die EU und die öffentliche Meinung sind besorgt über die Verbrecher aus dem westlichen Balkan. Sie müssen überzeugt werden, dass ausreichende Maßnahmen gegen organisiertes Verbrechen angewendet werden.” Doch selbst bei den EU-Mitgliedsstaaten Bulgarien und Rumänien gibt es daran noch erhebliche Zweifel. Dort sei Korruption nach wie vor ein großes Problem, schreiben die Vereinten Nationen in ihrem Bericht.

Querverbindungen zu politischen Eliten

Das organisierte Verbrechen auf dem Balkan nehme ab, aber es gebe noch viele Kriegsgewinnler und Unterweltbosse aus vergangenen Zeiten, die heute versuchten, ihre illegal erworbenen Vermögen und ihren Ruf rein zu waschen. Es gebe immer noch zahlreiche Querverbindungen zu politischen Eliten, meint Monica Macovei. Sie war bis 2007 Justizministerin in Rumänien und wurde entlassen, weil sie Korruption in höchsten Staatsämtern verfolgen wollte. Macovei sagte: „Der Kampf gegen politische Korruption bedeutet, dass man die politische Klasse ändern muss. Die wehrt sich natürlich, wie in meinem Falle. Das passiert immer wieder. Sie schlagen zurück, denn sie haben ja Gesetze und Macht in ihrer Hand. Das ist sehr schwierig, vielleicht eine unmögliche Aufgabe.” Heute berät Monica Macovei die Regierung in Mazedonien beim Kampf gegen Korruption. Sie empfiehlt eine weitere Annäherung der Balkanstaaten an die EU, verlangt aber auch, dass die EU harte Kriterien anlegt und nicht wie im Falle Rumäniens und Bulgariens nachlässig über Mängel bei der Korruptionsbekämpfung hinwegsieht.

Der Grad an Korruption ist nach Angaben der UN in den verschiedenen Ländern sehr unterschiedlich. Höchste Werte ergab die Untersuchung für Albanien, die Republik Moldau und Rumänien, während die Korruption in Serbien oder Kosovo relativ niedrige Werte erreicht. In Albanien gaben zwei Drittel der Befragten Bürger an, im Jahr 2006 Bestechungsgeld gezahlt zu haben. In Serbien waren es 13 Prozent. Der Durchschnittswert für Bestechung liegt in Westeuropa allerdings nur bei zwei Prozent.

Das Original UN Report

Greater stability in the Balkans is lowering crime, reports UNODC

The Balkan area is, surprisingly, one of the safest in Europe. The report Crime and its Impact on the Balkans by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) belies enduring stereotypes of the region as a hotbed of organized crime and violence. People are as safe, or safer, on the streets and in their homes as they are in most parts of the world. ….

“Ethnic Albanian organized crime groups have established themselves in many European Union Member States and beyond… ethnic Albanian crime groups are found to extend their role from facilitators to achieving full control in certain crime areas. They adapt without difficulties to local or changing situations.”
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.

Efraim Diveroli talks with Kosta Trebicka

“n the audio recording, Diveroli is speaking to Kosta Trebicka, an Albanian businessman, about Ylli Pinari, director of an Albanian agency in charge of arms exports.

Diveroli says he “can’t play monkey business with the mafia … and all those fucking guys in Albania” because his contract is with the US government and “everyone is watching me.”

Trebicka, who was acting as a middle man for the deal, said “Pinari and his mafia guys … will create lots of problems,” but he tried to calm the young AEY president.

“Probably I will be invited in Washington DC from the CIA guys and from my friends over there,” Trebicka tells Diveroli in the conversation recorded June 11, 2007. “Two weeks from now I will come to Florida to shake hands with you and discuss future deals.””

The way AEY’s business was structured, Mr. Diveroli, at least officially, did not deal directly with Albanian officials. Instead, a middleman company registered in Cyprus, Evdin Ltd., bought the ammunition and sold it to his company.

The local packager involved in the deal, Mr. Trebicka, said that he suspected that Evdin’s purpose was to divert money to Albanian officials.

The purchases, Mr. Trebicka said, were a flip: Albania sold ammunition to Evdin for $22 per 1,000 rounds, he said, and Evdin sold it to AEY for much more. The difference, he said he suspected, was shared with Albanian officials, including Mr. Pinari, then the head of the arms export agency, and the defense minister at the time, Fatmir Mediu.

(Mr. Mediu resigned last week after the ammunition depot explosions; Mr. Pinari was arrested.) The Albanian government has been infuriated by Mr. Trebicka’s allegations. Sali Berisha, the prime minister, Mr. Mediu and Mr. Pinari all denied involvement in kickbacks. But Mr. Trebicka said that after he raised his concerns about Evdin with the Defense Ministry, his company was forced from the repackaging contract.

On June 11, 2007, Mr. Trebicka and Mr. Diveroli commiserated by phone about problems with doing business in Albania. Mr. Trebicka surreptitiously recorded the conversation, and later gave the audio files to American investigators.

The conversation, he said, showed that the American company was aware of corruption in its dealings in Albania and that Heinrich Thomet, a Swiss arms dealer, was behind Evdin.

In the recordings, which Mr. Trebicka shared with The Times, Mr. Diveroli suggests that Mr. Thomet, called “Henri,” was acting as the middleman.

“Pinari needs a guy like Henri in the middle to take care of him and his buddies, which is none of my business,” Mr. Diveroli said. “I don’t want to know about that business. I want to know about legitimate businesses.”

Mr. Diveroli recommended that Mr. Trebicka try to reclaim his contract by sending “one of his girls” to have sex with Mr. Pinari. He suggested that money might help, too.

“Let’s get him happy; maybe he gives you one more chance,” he said. “If he gets $20,000 from you … ”

At the end, Mr. Diveroli appeared to lament his business with Albania. “It went up higher to the prime minister and his son,” he said. “I can’t fight this mafia. It got too big. The animals just got too out of control.”

TOP Video Ausstrahlung in Albanien mit Trebicka, welcher die Mafia Geschäfte der Albanischen Politik erklärt mit ihren Kick Back Geschäften.

Sämtliche Geschäfte dort über die rein kriminell agierende Deutsche Botschaft in Tirana, den Mafia Umtrieben der BMZ – GTZ und die seit Jahren für jeden ersichtliche enge Zusammenarbeit mit der Albanischen Mafia haben den Ruf der Deutschen Politik ins Bodenlose stürzen lassen im Balkan. Humantiäre Hilfe aus Deutschland, Beratung usw. führte immer automatisch in den Sumpf krimineller Deutscher Politiker seit 1999 und ein Mafiös aufgebauten Deutschen Aussenpolitik, wobei die hier aufgeführten Fakten und Zusammenhänge man auch durch Namens Austausche direkt mit Steinmeier, Joschka Fischer, Rezzo Schlauch und diversen armseligen Gestalten welche sich Botschafter dort nennen koppeln könnte.

Jeder Deutsche Partei erhält am Fake Aufbau im Ausland und einer erfundenen Humanitären Intervention und Aufbau von Verwaltungen seinen Mafiösen Anteil über das BMZ verteilt inklusive natürlich auch den FDP Horden, oder wie in diesem Falle der CDU deren dubiose Partei Mitglieder mit Haftbefehl gesucht sich auch schon mal in Albanien tummelten. Unvergessen sind die Spuren des gesuchten Gerhard Haag und deren Rekord verdächtige Betrugs Veranstaltungen mit einem Münchner
Anwalt, welche über eine Fake Bau Firma und der Gründung der Scientogly Zentrale in Albanien, ebenso besondere kriminelle Energie entwickelten und das schon in 1993! Seitdem ist auch der Ex-Minister Warnke untergetaucht!

Warnke stieg damals aus der Kanzlei aus, weil er mit der Scientolgy Sache Nichts zu tun haben wollte.

Das Österreichisch – Russische Unternehmen „Deko-Metal“ und ihr Todes Bergwerk in Albanien!

Vor 7 Monaten, wurde der Vertreter, dieses Mafia und Korruptions Unternehmen aus Oesterreich entlassen.

Das österreichisch-russische Konsortium „Deko-Metal“ entlässt den Bergwerksdirektor Eduard Keta nach heftigen Protesten gegen die unzureichenden Sicherheitsvorkehrungen in der Eisen-Chrom-Mine in Bulqiza.

Aber die Todes Rate, geht sogar nach oben, denn das sind die extremen Bestechungs Geschaefte von Auslaender mit Politischen Hintergrund. Und die Oesterreicher sind wie bekannt die Weltmeister im Visa Handel auf dem Balkan zusammen mit den Griechen.

Another death in the chrome mine

06/06/2008

Albanian bloggers reflect on an ongoing safety problem.

By Klodjan Seferaj for Southeast European Times in Tirana – 06/06/08
d

The mine in Bulqiza has been the site of several fatal accidents.

Albania’s ferrochrome mine at Bulqiza has taken on a grim nickname — people now call it the “mine of death”, due to the several lives it has claimed. In May, 24-year-old Novruz Gjoka became the ninth person to die there.

Prior to that, in February, 53-year-old Njazi Aliu died after a massive pile of dirt caved in on him.

After each new incident, pledges to improve safety conditions come from the government and the contractors running the mine. Yet the accidents continue. Blogging at briskut, Blendi discusses the tragedy.

“Another person has died in the mine of death,” Blendi writes. “It seems as though the life of a Bulqiza miner is not worth more than his weight … in chrome.”

According to an Albtoday article posted on the blog, a miners’ union has twice gone to the authorities to report on the dangerous conditions. But the official reaction has been “really weak”, it says, because the government sold off Albania’s mines as concessions to various companies, foreign and local.

Perparimi comments: “I followed with deep heartache the tragedy of those people, and I am getting nervous with this government but also with the opposition, which is still sleeping. Those lives are being lost in such a silly and casual way — it reminds me of a couplet by Fan Noli: they leave as easily/as a man touches his ear.

Writing at peshkupauje, meanwhile, Kaso chides Albania’s political leaders for their handling of recovery efforts after the Gerdec munitions blast. While crews rebuild homes, refugees shuttle from one temporary place to another.

“Not for the first time, our political class is showing to the world that it doesn’t demonstrate the highest ethical standards but rather is below the average level of the people,” Kaso writes. “Instead of trying to build the rule of law and functioning at the service of the people, it is demonstrating disregard for the law.”

“For it, citizens represent some amorphous species that is needed only for electoral meetings, applause and the ballot box,” he concludes.

Commenting on the post, Anonim poses a question. “Can you explain why this old nation, with all its unique qualities, can’t create the conditions for a comfortable life? Why do we have these kinds of politicians? We don’t want to believe they are what we deserve.”

Der US Botschafter in Tirana John Withers und die Generalstaatsanwälting forcieren die Ermittlungen im Falle Gerdec

Juni 4th, 2008

Mit allen Mitteln versucht die Politische Mafia, welche in einem tiefen Sumpf steckt, die Ermittlungen im Falle der Kathastrophe von Gerdec und den gesamten Waffen Handel um die Staatsfirma MEICO zu verhindern. Vor allem stecken tief darin wohl alle bisherigen Premier Minister von Albanien. Vor allem wird mit allen Mitteln auch die Aufhebung der Immunität von Ex-Minister Mediu versucht zu verhindern, der praktisch nur ein verlängerter Arm der Mafia um Sabri Godo ist, dem Ex-Botschafter Josef Limprecht und der Drehscheibe der Mafia und des Bin Laden Financiers Yassin Kadi: die American Bank of Albania.

US Slams Albania Govt on Blast Probe

Ina Rama and John Withers

Ina Rama and John Withers

04 June 2008 Tirana _ The U.S. ambassador in Tirana has condemned Albanian’s Premier and Parliament speaker for stalling a probe into the March 15 army depot blasts.

“The American government will view with disappointment and alarm any effort to subject this investigation to any outside influence whatsoever,” said John L. Withers after a meeting with Prosecutor General Ina Rama.

Parliamentary Speaker Jozefina Topalli has repeatedly delayed a decision to put to vote the immunity of former Defense Minister Fatmir Mediu, while Prime Minister Sali Berisha has remained silent on the issue, though formerly promising that no official of his government would hide behind parliamentary immunity.

Prosecutor General Ina Rama has asked parliament to lift Mediu’s immunity. The former defence minister resigned from government in the days following the blasts which killed 26 people and left more than 300 injured.

“The violation of the laws and procedures of security and ammunition storage and the mismanagement of the disposal process caused the sparks that set off the massive explosions,” Rama stated in her request for Mediu’s immunity to be lifted.

She added that “a flagrant violation in this process has been the employment of children.”

Rama accuses the former defence minister of abuse of power. As a member of parliament, however, he enjoys immunity from formal charges and cannot be formally placed under investigation.

“It is the Prosecutor General’s constitutional duty, not that of any other body of government, to conduct her work without interference; and for this to take place, it is essential that Parliament immediately address the question of parliamentary immunity,” Withers said.

“The American government and people will be deeply concerned if any political faction, party, or leader makes statements or takes actions that in any way inject a political agenda into what must be an impartial and independent investigation based on the rule of law,” he added.http://balkaninsight.com/en/main/news/10718/

US ambassador to Albania calls for independent investigation into depot blasts

04/06/2008

TIRANA, Albania — US Ambassador to Albania John Withers said on Tuesday (June 3rd) that Washington remains committed to an independent investigation of the March 15th explosions at the ammunitions depot in Gerdec. During a meeting with Chief Prosecutor Ina Rama, Withers stressed that any attempt to influence the investigation from outside would disappoint Washington. “It is a constitutional right of the prosecution to carry out this investigation and not of any government organ,” Withers said, adding that to resolve the issue parliament must settle the issue of immunity for members as soon as possible.

Separately Tuesday, Parliament Speaker Jozefina Topalli urged Rama to provide the assembly with additional documents regarding the lifting of former Defence Minister Fatmir Mediu’s immunity. He has been implicated in the deadly Gerdec blasts. (Koha Jone, Shqip – 04/06/08; VOA, TVSH, Klan, BalkanWeb – 03/06/08)

INTERVIEW WITH AFGHAN PRESIDENT HAMID KARZAI

SPIEGEL INTERVIEW WITH AFGHAN PRESIDENT HAMID KARZAI

‘I Wish I Had the Taliban as My Soldiers’

President Hamid Karzai has come under fire for not doing enough to stem corruption in Afghanistan. He speaks to SPIEGEL about the coalition forces’ ties with warlords, rumors about his family’s influence and why he believes dirty deals are sometimes necessary.

Taliban militants are a resurgent force in Afghanistan.

AP

Taliban militants are a resurgent force in Afghanistan.

SPIEGEL: Mr. President, much has been written about the failures of the international community in Afghanistan. But a good part of the so-called insurgency in the south and east of your country appears to have more to do with a protest movement against a bad government and corrupt elite. It doesn’t seem like much of an exaggeration to talk about a resurgence of the Taliban. Is it not true that many Afghans are only joining the Taliban because they don’t consider them to be corrupt? Hamid Karzai: I disagree. That is absolutely wrong.

SPIEGEL: Some Afghan people say that the president himself, who is appointing high-ranking officials in Kabul and in the provinces, is fueling the insurgency with these personnel decisions. Is that there any truth in that?

Karzai: Governance has improved immensely in Afghanistan. For the first time in six years, the Afghan budget has become transparent, there are no longer any secret funds. Before, the governors did whatever they wanted. Now there is a reporting requirement and there are former governors who were criminal or corrupt who are now in prison, like the former governor of Baghdis province. Of course the country needs more time, but the problems we have in the south and east are not because of bad governance.

SPIEGEL: Then what are the reasons for the difficult situation there?

Karzai: There is a lot of interference from abroad. The south part of the country has always been the center of the Taliban activity; they came from there. And there are also traces of the mujahedeen’s decades-long battle. These are all factors.

SPIEGEL: Some of your closest aides are suspected of stealing land, drug smuggling and having illegal militias, among them respected governors and police chiefs. Your attorney general, Abdul Jabar Sabet, just named a few of them, including the governor of Nangarhar. Why do you still protect these people?

President Hamid Karzai in Kabul.

DER SPIEGEL / Tina Hager / Agentur Focus

President Hamid Karzai in Kabul.

Karzai: I am not protecting anybody. We are trying to govern Afghanistan and bring peace and stability. I know about the problems with the police. The international community finally agreed after two years of very intense and angry negotiations that the police are a problem and in the middle of 2007 they began to work with us. The checkpoints on the roads, for example, were developed during the years of the Soviet invasion, a time when the country became lawless and each local commander set up his own checkpoint to collect money. SPIEGEL: During the Taliban times there were no checkpoints at all.

Karzai: That was the best aspect of the Taliban. They did a lot wrong, but they also did a few things right. I wish I had the Taliban as my soldiers. I wish they were serving me and not people in Pakistan or others. When we came back to Afghanistan, the international community brought back all those people who had turned away from the Taliban …

SPIEGEL: … you mean the brutal commanders who fought in the civil war …

Karzai: … who then became partners with the foreign allies and are still paid by them today for their support. It is not always easy for me to find a way that can enable Afghanistan’s administration to function.

SPIEGEL: Dirty deals are still necessary for the stability of Afghanistan?

Karzai: Absolutely necessary, because we lack the power to solve these problems in other ways. What do you want? War? Let me give you an example. We wanted to arrest a really terrible warlord, but we couldn’t do it because he is being protected by a particular country. We found out that he was being paid $30,000 a month to stay on his good side. They even used his soldiers as guards …

SPIEGEL: That sounds like the story of Commander Nasir Mohammed in Badakhshan, a province where German soldiers are based.

Karzai: I don’t want to name the country because it will hurt a close friend and ally. But there are also many other countries who contract the Afghan militias and their leaders. So I can only work where I can act, and I must always calculate what will happen before doing anything.

SPIEGEL: There is a list of high-level drug lords and smugglers, and a number of well-known figures in the establishment. Some are your advisors and some are even alleged to be part of your cabinet. Why haven’t we seen the trial of a single prominent person?

Karzai: This list is a myth. I have never received such a list. I have asked the international community to deliver this supposed list to me, but it has never been presented.

SPIEGEL: Your former interior minister, Ali Ahmad Jalali, claimed to possess such a list.

Karzai: Then you would have to look for that in the archive of the Interior Ministry. It is also incorrect what you say: A lot of drug smugglers have been taken to court. Why are you quoting Mr. Jalalai as having this list?

SPIEGEL: Because he once publicly stated he did. Are you doubting his credibility because he was one of the ministers who became entangled in a corruption scandal surrounding the appropriation of land for construction in Kabul?

Karsai: Some members of the international community are strongly connected to corrupt elements and use them as their sources. Let me tell you about another case: One of our allies in the coalition gave a commander in another part of the country land and money for his loyalty. Should I bring him to trial? Should I bring Mr. Jalali to trial?

SPIEGEL: Why not?

Karzai: You cannot expect us to punish an Afghan who has lived his whole life in this country, who has suffered, sacrificed his family, given blood for this country, for having committed a little crime or a little corruption. And then the person who had long been away and first came back with the international community and loots the country can get away with it? This cannot be allowed to happen.

SPIEGEL: Since you became president, your family has become highly successful in the business world and also in politics. Your brother Mahmoud Karzai is currently CEO of a cement plant in Pul-i-Khumri in the northeast that was the envy of many competitors. Two other brothers, Qayum and Ahmed Wali, are powerful politicians in the southern part of the country. Many there say that no decisions can be made without the approval of the Karzais. Is there a grain of truth to that?

Karzai: This is really a lot of rubbish. Ahmed Wali has been accused of drug dealing. I have thoroughly investigated all these accusations, and of course none of them are true. Mahmoud was a businessman for a number of years in the United States, he even has an American passport. He was very successful there and made a lot of money. He returned when the US came to Afghanistan. Now he has become the CEO of a factory and there is nothing wrong with that.

SPIEGEL: He is also the head of a large group of investors that is doing big business in Afghanistan. Is it helpful to be a close relative of the president?…………..

Bosnia Plans to Expel Arabs Who Fought in Its War

Bosnia Plans to Expel Arabs Who Fought in Its War

SARAJEVO, Bosnia and Herzegovina — When Fadhil Hamdani first came to Bosnia from Iraq in 1979 he had no idea he would stay so long. But after prolonged studies, marriage to a Bosnian woman, the birth of five children and citizenship, the years turned into decades.

Now he says he feels more Bosnian than Iraqi.

But the Bosnian government does not agree. It views him as a threat to national security and is putting Mr. Hamdani and other foreign fighters who have lived in Bosnia for many years on notice of deportation.

Arabs, the largest group among hundreds of foreign fighters, fought alongside the Bosnian Muslim Army during the war here, from 1992 to 1995, against Serbs and Croats. In return, they were given Bosnian citizenship.

Most left after the war, which tore apart Muslim, Serbian and Croatian communities and cost around 100,000 lives. But a number stayed on and settled down.

Bosnian officials say their policies are merely reversing decisions that were illegally made at the war’s end. But Bosnian politicians and international officials say that the reversals are primarily motivated by a broader concern: that Bosnia should not be seen as a haven for Islamic militants.

Western officials and local politicians, mostly the Muslims’ former opponents, have accused the former fighters of promoting radical Islam and damaging Bosnia’s reputation in the process.

“Some of their structures have been very active in promoting radical activities in the form of Wahhabism,” said Dragan Mektic, Bosnia’s deputy security minister, in a recent interview, referring to a strict form of Islam. “The public feel endangered.”

Western governments have been encouraging the move.

Miroslav Lajcak, a Slovak diplomat who is the high representative of the international community in Bosnia and the senior international official here, has increased pressure on the government to move ahead with the deportations. So far, only two former combatants have actually been expelled, both last year.

“The presence of foreign fighters isn’t particularly useful for building a modern democratic state,” said a Western diplomat closely involved with the review, who spoke on the customary diplomatic condition of anonymity.

While many former fighters who stayed have managed to fit into Bosnian society, others stand out. Imad al-Hussein, a former medical student from Syria with a thick beard, became the public face of the Muslim fighters, or mujahedeen, after the war. He is one of six former fighters the government wants to expel first. The government has not publicly outlined its case against him.

His views do lie outside the norms of most Muslims here. For instance, he says that suicide bombings are justifiable but only within Israel. He said in a long interview that he and his former comrades had always acted within the law in Bosnia. But in response to the threat of being removed from his family’s home by force, he said: “I keep asking myself, will I be able to contain my instincts. If you defend yourself on your doorstep you become a martyr. And that is a great temptation.”

Other veterans are tensely biding their time, and they contend that there is nothing to connect them to any form of illegal activity. “If there was any evidence against us, then why have they let 12 years pass without prosecuting us,” said Raffaq Jalili, a Moroccan wounded in the war.

Bosnia is still recuperating from the war, and international officials who play a large role here are working to resolve stark differences among the Muslim, Serbian and Croatian populations. The high representative — currently Mr. Lajcak — still has the power to make laws and fire local politicians.

Both Saudi Arabia and the United States say that Islamic extremists have used Bosnian passports to travel between the Middle East and Europe; some Bosnian government officials say that has been impossible to confirm.

Western intelligence services and their Bosnian counterparts also claim they have uncovered two major plots in the past six years by Islamic extremists in Bosnia to attack Western targets.

In October 2001, six Algerians were arrested by the Bosnian police and later were sent to prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. In 2005, a Swedish man of Bosnian heritage and a Turk who had lived in Denmark were accused of possessing explosives and vests for making a suicide bomb. They were convicted and sentenced to prison in January.

It is not known how many foreign fighters remain in Bosnia — estimates vary wildly from more than a dozen to several hundred. The government says that a commission reviewed a list of more than 1,000 names and has revoked citizenship for about 420 people so far. Mr. Hamdani was the first to be notified by the commission, a year ago.

From 1996 to 2001, many of the former fighters occupied Bocinja, which had been a Serbian village in central Bosnia. The fighters lived there under Islamic Shariah law until they were evicted by the government, and they dispersed throughout central Bosnia.

Mr. Hamdani came to Bosnia when he was 18 and studied engineering in Zenica. By the time the conflict in Bosnia broke out in 1992, he was married and had two children.

It was only natural to fight for his adopted country, he said, as Bosnian Serb forces, backed by neighboring Serbia, attacked Muslims across the country. In February 1995, nine months before the end of the war, he was granted citizenship…………….

Demokratie auf Albanisch in Mazedonien: Mit der Waffe mehrfach wählen

Juni 1st, 2008

Da gehen die Albaner Banditen um die DUI mit der Waffe zum wählen und dann gleich mit mehreren Stimmzetteln. Und als man dies unterbinden will, wird zur Waffe gegriffen.

Derartige Vorgänge kennt man auch aus dem Kosovo und Nord Albanien. Die besondere Art der Demokratie Vorstellung der Albaner eben und besonders der Extremen Mafia Clans der Albaner.

Die oppositionelle albanische Demokratische Integrationsunion (DUI) hatte schon Stunden zuvor den Tod eines Parteimitglieds in Aracinovo bekannt gegeben. Nach Angaben der Polizei wurde Naser Ajvazi in einer Auseinandersetzung mit der Polizei in einem Wahllokal getötet. Laut dem Polizeisprecher wollte Ajvazi für mehrere Personen die Stimme abgeben. Als ihm dies nicht ermöglicht wurde, zog er eine Pistole hervor. Der Präsident der Wahlkommission bat daraufhin die Polizei um die Hilfe. Diese habe eingegriffen und in Richtung Ajvazis geschossen, erklärte der Polizeisprecher. Bei diesem Zwischenfall seien mindestens fünf Personen verletzt worden, sagte der Sprecher. Keiner davon sei ein Polizist gewesen.

Schießerei
Die Polizei bestätigte unterdessen, dass im Dorf Grusino eine Person bei einer Schießerei in einem Wahllokal verletzt wurde. Dort hatte ein Albaner für mehrere Familienmitglieder die Stimme abgeben wollen. Als ihm dies verweigert wurde, habe er eine Pistole gezogen. Er wurde von mehreren bewaffneten Personen begleitet.

Und wenn man nicht wählen darf, dann lässt man die Wahl Urnen verschwinden und bringt Selbige dann mit gefälschten Wahl Zetteln wieder zurück. 19 Wahl Lokale mussten wegen der besonderen Art von Demokratie Vorstellung heute in Mazedonien geschlossen werden. Und natürlich wieder das Verbrecher Nest: Aracinovo und diese Mafiöse Partei des Ali Ahmeit DUI!

Wer schneller schiesst und bombt der gewinnt!

Original arachische Blutrache Banden Kämpfe um die Vorherrschaft von Drogen- Waffen- Auto- und Menschenschmuggler Geschäften und das Resultat, wenn Deutsche Politiker dort Demokratische Parteien aufbauen.
DUI’s Headquarters in Tetovo Attacked

In der Geschichte ist längst der Terror Banden Krieg des Ali Ahmeti von 2001 und im Auftrag von Bin Laden, als reiner Pfründe Krieg der Albanischen Mafia eingegangen, angestiftet von der US Mafia aus dem www.aacl.com und der US Mafia Nr. 1 dem Gambino Clan.

Genau wie wir schon vor einer Woche vorhersagte, rutschen die Albaner Banden Kriege nun in 2008, in einem reinen Banden Krieg ab.

Und wer erinnert sich noch an diese dreisten Aktionen der Verbrecher Organisation MPRI in Aracinovo in 2001, als man für Mörder und Terroristen als Dirigent und Ausrüster agierte.

When the 1991 UN arms embargo prevented the Clinton Administration from helping Croats and Bosnian Muslims directly, MPRI was engaged to do all that the U.S. government preferred not to do openly. In 1994 it referred MPRI to Croatia’s visiting defense minister Gojko Susak, who duly contracted the company to train and equip its forces. According to U.S. Army War College Quarterly, with the explicit consent of the U.S. State and Defense Departments the firm undertook to modernize and retrain the Croatian army, including the general staff. In the summer of 1995, thanks to such assistance, the formerly inept Croatian army mounted Operation Storm,aus globalresearch.ca

Wie auch in Afghanistan und dem Kosovo, sind die Partner von Solana, Deutschen Politikern und US Militärs ganz einfach die grössten Verbrecher. Man bezahlt diese Leute und bildet sie aus und so werden Verbrecher Partner der durchgeknallten Deutschen Politiker und dem anderen Abzocker Gesindel, was sich heute als Berater und Experte beim Zivilen Aufbau verkauft.

FBI: Albanian mobsters ‘new Mafia’

From Justice Producer Terry Frieden

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Thousands of Albanians and others who fled the Balkans for the United States in recent years have emerged as a serious organized crime problem, threatening to displace La Cosa Nostra (LCN) families as kingpins of U.S. crime, top FBI officials said Wednesday.

FBI Weighs in on Balkan Organised Crime

21/11/2003

An FBI statement before a US Senate Committee in October assessed the organised crime situation in the Balkans.

……………….

Albanian organised crime has reached the United States, creating partnerships with the Gambino, Genovese, and Luchese families to facilitate specific crimes.

In Italy, meanwhile, Mafia groups have reportedly taken advantage of the country’s geographic proximity to Southeast Europe to align themselves with Balkan organised criminal groups engaged in arms and cigarette smuggling, trafficking in humans and smuggling of aliens.

In order to confront this growing problem, Ashley said, the FBI has established the Balkan Organised Crime (BOC) initiative, which is focused on criminal activity emanating from Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia-Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, and Greece. The BOC is a high profile endeavour on the part of the FBI’s Organised Crime Section and the US Department of Justice’s Organised Crime and Racketeering Section, he noted.

Das ist bekanntlich Alles der Politische Murks von Joschka Fischer, dem Amts Versager, der solche Leute auch noch als Politik Partner anerkannte.

Es ging immer nur um Posten, welche man verkaufte bzw. an Verwandte weiter reichte! 

Die Albaner wählen traditionell „ihre“ Parteien, von denen sie im Gegenzug nach den Wahlen Unterstützung erwarten: Einen Posten für den Neffen in der Verwaltung, die lange fällige Teerung der Zufahrtsstraße zum Dorf, die Finanzierung eines neuen Kreißsaals im örtlichen Krankenhaus.

Dieser Klientelismus ist zwar kein Alleinstellungsmerkmal Mazedoniens auf dem Balkan, gilt dort aber schon deshalb als besonders ausgeprägt, da seit dem Ende der fast zu einem Bürgerkrieg ausgearteten Kämpfe des Jahres 2001 alle staatlichen Posten nach ethnischem Proporz verteilt werden. Das gilt für die Parteien der slawischen Mazedonier auch, ist aber bei den auf dem Lande weiterhin in Clanstrukturen organisierten Albanern noch deutlicher ausgeprägt.

Stimmabgabe in Mazedonien: Die Albaner wählen traditionell “ihre Partei”

Wer nichts zu verteilen hat, verliert

Somit bedeutet eine Wahlniederlage für eine albanische Partei in Mazedonien eine fast existenzielle Bedrohung: Wer nichts zu verteilen hat, verliert. In diesem Wahlkampf sahen sich beide albanischen Parteien Mazedoniens bedrängt. Die BDI Ahmetis lag zwar in allen Umfragen vorn, musste aber dennoch fürchten, bei der Neuverteilung der Macht in Skopje zu kurz zu kommen. Regierungschef Gruevski, der einem sicheren Wahlsieg entgegensah, versucht eine Zusammenarbeit mit dem ehemaligen Freischärlerführer Ahmeti unter allen Umständen zu vermeiden.

Er will lieber seine Koalition mit der kleineren PDSh von Thaçi fortsetzen. Thaçi, der nicht mit dem kosovarischen Ministerpräsidenten gleichen Familiennamens verwandt ist, gilt ebenso wie Ahmeti als skrupelloser Machtpolitiker mit Verbindungen zur Unterwelt, ist aber politisch geschwächt und schon deshalb ein pflegeleichterer Koalitionspartner für Gruevski.

Der ITCY: BEHIND CURTAINS OF INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE

Juni 1st, 2008

BEHIND CURTAINS OF INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE – October 11, 2007

   

  

- interview with Mrs. Florence Hartmann, former spokesperson

of the U.N. International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia in the Hague and author of the book “Peace and Punishment” in which she describes the mechanisms and politics influencing the international criminal justice system.

 

Sebastian Aulich: Why did you decide to write your book? What made you to write it?

 

Florence Hartmann: International justice finally exists but is still fragile and may be even in danger in this new century. The hopes given to humanity by creating the first ever established judicial bodies to implement international humanitarian law

should not be destroyed. The ICC is the best gift we have from

the bloody XX century. International justice is not prefect, it has deficiencies, it doesn’t work as we wish, we have not succeeded

to put an end to impunity but the process is on and should be sustained. Therefore, I believe it was necessary to learn from

the experience of the first international criminal court established since Nuremberg and Tokyo. With ICTY we have almost 15 years of experience of how an international judicial body works, what gave us important information about the problems, deficiencies and negatives, which were part of the ICTY experience. I also believe it would be very useful for others to better understand what was going on in the ICTY, what was not functioning properly, why there is some frustration about international justice system. It isn’t easy for somebody from the outside to figure those things out, identify and understand them. Therefore I wanted to write about all those difficulties, how they were overcome or how they failed to be overcome, about what was going right and what was going wrong. I believe it is something very precious and we need to assist international justice. I wanted to explain that the problem was not primarily with the international justice but with some external factors. It will take time for international justice to become independent and it was important to write about political influences on the ICTY in order to protect it from such political pressures in the future. The book’s purpose is to identify the problem, not to generalize it. I am a journalist. I worked as a journalist before I started to work at the Tribunal, therefore I believe in a necessity to inform. In this case there were many things, which appeared to be necessary to write about, the things related to ICTY but also some elements related to the conflict in former Yugoslavia. I have been covering the Balkans’ issues since 1987. Do you think it is wrong to write such a book?

 

SA: Not at all. I think it is good you published your book because it gives us better understanding of what is going on inside the Tribunal…

 

That was my goal. It was not a kind of a story I should be keeping only to myself.

 

SA: What did you want to suggest by naming your book “Peace and Punishment”?
