PACE: Kosovo's Prime Minister Hashim Thaci is a Criminal

16.12.2010 13:32

The story about the current Prime Minister Hashim Thaci?s Democratic Party?s victory in the parliamentary elections on December 12 in Kosovo was suddenly continued.

The joint statement by Catherine Ashton, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Štefan Füle, European Commissioner for Enlargement says that the Kosovo authorities have only to ?fix the results and investigate complaints and claims in accordance with relevant legislation and regulatory acts.?

However, curiously enough, it was the European Parliament that found ?the complaints and claims?. At the same time the Europeans do not query the legitimacy of the elections in Kosovo. It is the candidacy of the winning party?s leader and head of state - Hashim Thaci, one of the former war lords of the terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) that gives rise to doubt. A separate report of the Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe was dedicated to this theme.

It is worth mentioning that in 2008 Carla Del Ponte, the former chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague in her book ?The Hunt: Me and War Criminals? called Hashim Thaci a criminal and compared his crimes nothing less than to the atrocities of the Third Reich. In her book, Del Ponte describes how the people kidnapped by militants of the KLA and used as donors, begged to be killed. In addition, Carla Del Ponte directly accused Thaci of the creation of concentration camps, where one excised organs of the killed ethnic Serbs and Roma for sale to the Western hospitals.

However, all this damning evidence against the Kosovo prime minister Thaci as a criminal before humanity and ranking him together with Nazi thugs, was exposed by Carla Del Ponte when she was already a former chief prosecutor at the ICTY. ?Corporate ethics? then prevented the accuser of Serbian war criminals to timely make official statements on this matter - such statements could turn out to be too big scandals. It would turn out that ?ardent Albanian fighters for freedom and independence? are indeed thugs and international terrorists.

As an old Russian proverb goes: you cannot wash charcoal white. It is hoped that presently PACE will more fundamentally take up the investigation of crimes of Kosovo leaders, regardless of the results of recent elections in the country.

The PACE report prepared by an independent expert group headed by Swiss Senator and former prosecutor Dick Marty, says that the prime minister of Kosovo during the last 10 years was the head of a ?mafia-like? Albanian Drenica Group, which was engaged in smuggling weapons, drugs and human organs in Eastern Europe.

PACE investigation lasted almost two years. The final report uses epithets with respect to Tachi such as ?mafia boss?, ?drug dealer? and also states his complicity in the kidnapping and trafficking in human organs, what was mentioned by Carla Del Ponte in her book.

Thaci?s closest criminal associates figure in the report too: in particular, according to Dick Marty, the illegal trade in human organs was directly led by Chief Medical Officer Sharip Muju, who now serves as political adviser to Hashim Thaci.

The document sets out the facts of the capture by the members of the Drenica criminal network, headed by the prime minister of Kosovo, of ethnic Serbs, Gypsies, Albanians, as well as other nationalities, including Russians, for the removal of their vital organs. The dealers sold human organs to Europe, and as regards people, they simply thrown them into the street if not killed immediately.

In addition, Drenica was also marked in the traditional Albanian criminal business: in particular, by supplying through the Balkans large quantities of heroin, weapons and stolen vehicles.

There is already the first official reaction to the report by Dick Marty - the EU police mission in Kosovo has declared its readiness to start its own investigation as soon as it has given evidence of Hashim Thaci?s crime.

The reaction of the Russian Foreign Ministry is known too: the Head of Russian diplomacy, Sergei Lavrov during a meeting with Serbian counterpart Vuk Jeremic called on the Serbian Foreign Ministry not to conceal the crime of former prime minister of Kosovo. ?Information on trafficking in human organs appeared quite a long time ago. Now, I apprehend, a professional work has been carried out to investigate the relevant facts. This report should not remain a classified document,? said Sergei Lavrov.
