Skip to comments.(Kosovo Albanian) Pacoli is paying 60 lobbyists in Washington (for Kosovo Independence)

Bexhet Pacoli, the richest Kosovo Albanian in the world from whose telephone, according to BND findings, a transaction in the amount of two million euros was arranged from a Swiss bank to one in Cyprus in the name of Kosovo special envoy Martti Ahtisaari, openly claims that he is paying 60 people just in Washington who are lobbying for the independence of Kosovo.
"In Washington I am paying a team of 60 people who are lobbying for Kosovo in the administration of president George Bush and in the U.S. Senate and Congress," said Pacoli in a recently published interview. He added that he is also good friends with former U.S. president Bill Clinton.
This billionaire came under media scrutiny eight years ago when he was suspected of having bribed Russian president Boris Yeltsin.
Current chief prosecutor of the Hague tribunal Carla del Ponte, then Swiss federal prosecutor, burst into the facilities of the Mabetex company in Lugano at the request of Russian federal prosecutor Yuri Skuratov.
Bexhet Pacoli, originally from the village of Marevac near Pristina, is the owner of the general contracting and engineering company Mabetex, which is based in Lugano, whose assets are estimated at between two and three billion dollars and which employs approximately six thousand people in 18 branches located throughout the world.
In terms of financial power Mabetex is among the 70 strongest companies in Switzerland, with representative offices in the USA, Austria, Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, China, Russia, the Ukraine, Moldava, Kazakhstan, Slovenia and elsewhere.
He has a daughter in Bosnia-Herzegovina who is also involved in project design and registered under the same name, Mabetex DOO, in Sarajevo.
His decision to make his economic empire work for political purposes is confirmed by the newly founded organization of Kosovo Albanians in the USA called the Alliance for a New Kosovo, which he finances directly, and the newly founded political party called New Kosovo Alliance, through which Pacoli hopes to see himself as the premier of an independent Kosovo.
The Alliance for a New Kosovo is headed by two lobbyists from the U.S. offices of Jefferson Waterman, former vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council Samuel Hoskinson and former deputy assistant secretary for East-West trade in the State Department Kempton Jenkins.
This lobbying group will also act through its advisory body, which includes former U.S. secretary of defense and deputy CIA director Frank Carlucci, who served as secretary of defense in the Reagan administration and the long-time president of the Carlyle Group, a powerful military-industrial corporation.
Among the senior advisors of Carlyle is former U.S. president George Bush, and until the September 11 attacks its executive board also included the Bin Laden family.
Upon arriving in Kosovo, BND agents uncovered a clear and frequent relationship and communication between the leading figures of the Albanian mafia, their intermediaries and Martti Ahtisaari.
According to what the agents uncovered, several calls were made to the building of the special envoy for Kosovo, Martti Ahtisaari, from numbers known to belong to Albanian billionaire Bexhet Pacoli.
The content of the conversation from this number related to an unknown monetary transaction in the amount of two million euros from a Swiss bank in Basel, from account number 239700-93457- 00097, protected as an offshore sub-account under the code XS52-KOLER, which is owned by Exhet Boria, the right hand of the head of the Albanian mafia, to account number 3459346699004533, account code VOLANND, at the Bank of Cyprus.
Kosovors / Albanians ...who are the good guys again?
When hasn't it been for sale when it comes to congress and the need to have funds for reelection.
Kosovo needs to be left to the EU. That’s what the EU was formulated for. We need to be out of there and let the EU handle their own problems.
The Serbs are the ones fighting the Moslem Albanian Jihadists.
And we’re the ones trying to give the Jihadists the Serbian province of Kosovo so that Moslems all over the world will start liking us. It’s that masterful “appeasement” strategy that worked so well at stopping Hitler in 1939.
Neither; the Serbians are..unfortunately we are on the wrong side in this (started by Clinton continued under Bush)@.
That is what constantly confuses me about this area of conflict.
You betcha, we've got the best government money can buy!
Can we call the KLA terrorists again?
For year the Albanians were driving the Serbs and non-Albanians out of Kosovo. Just look back to US articles on the subject back in the 1980's.
A combined force of illegal immigration to Kosovo from Albania, Albanians having the highest birthrate in Europe in the 1980's and Albanians driving all the non-Albanians out of Kosovo, eventually Albanians became the majority in Kosovo. Through a combination of the Yugoslav central government cracking down on Albanian ethnic cleansing behavior and Albanian organizing, an Albanian insurgency movement to make Kosovo "independent" grew. Eventually, the Kosovo Albanians wanted to rip Kosovo off of Serbia and make it independent. An Albanian mafia that started even back in the old 1970's and 1980's Yugoslavia, used a growing business in drugs, guns and sex slavery to finance their efforts --and that Mafia flourished after the UN took over Kosovo in 1999 . The Kosovo Albanians also found other outside financial and political backers to help them. First it was guys like Pacoli, bin Laden (virtually all of the Kosovo Albanians are Moslem) -- and eventually even the US.
No, JSDude1, "Serbs are" NOT "on the wrong side of this". Kosovo is sovereign Serbian land, and we have no right to steal it from them for our little Muslim "Albanian pets" -- anymore than someone would have the right to steal California and give it to Mexicans for "all the wrongs previously done to Hispanics in the US"! Serbia has as much a right to its sovereignty as we do to ours.
Excellent reading on the subject from an American point of view can be found in Julia Gorins "Ending the Balkan Quagmire" article.
Sorry about that, the “Ending the Balkan Quagmire Article is here: http://www.americanthinker.com/2007/07/ending_the_balkan_quagmire_at.html
For the most part, the EU really wants nothing to do with an "independent Kosovo". The US is the one driving this "Kosovo Independence" policy, and twisting arms to do it. It's insane!
Sounds like exactly the kind of people Billy Jeff Clintoon and his lovely WINO would have launched a war to help them take over land they had illegally squatted on. How shameful.
“You betcha, we’ve got the best government money can buy!”
And in the case of amnesty, we used billions of our OWN money to sell the government : )
You mistake me, I said “we” as in the USA, not Serbia.
Very sorry, JSDude1. You are right, I did misread it!
And still we've learned nothing.
I'm not sure if you are being facetious, but Kosovars are ethnic Albanian Muslims.
Who is the trouble-maker?
Which side we are on and why?
The Kosovars are the ethnic Albanian Muslims who started the battle with the Serbs. Milosovic took over as head of Serbia and took the fight to Kosovo. The Kosovars have been trying to take over Kosovo for years, but screamed when Milosovic went on the offensive. We were defending the Muslims, as usual. But they show no appreciation of any of our efforts, like always.
It’s a toss up as to which side was right in this one. Milosovic was bad, but so were the ethnic Albanians.
Still the best advice for assessing most anything, but especially government: Follow the money..."
True. But Milosovic is dead and the ethnic Albanians are still bad.

Evidence That UN Special Envoy for Kosovo Marti Ahtisaari
Received Albanian Mafia Bribes for Kosovo Independence
Analysis. By Valentine Spyroglou, GIS Station Chief, South-East Europe. On July 8, 2007
the KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army, Ushtria Çlirimtare e Kosovës or UÇK) war veterans issued an
announcement warning the international community and especially the United Nations (UN) not to
interfere the process of recognizing Kosovos independence. The KLA announcement specifically
said that the Albanian leaders of Kosovo should not accept more suspensions (delays) or new
negotiations because these would lead to new hostilities. If their demands were not accepted,
then the KLA veterans warned that they would have to take action as KLA soldiers and honor the
oath of their national heroes.
The announcement came while the UN Special Envoy for Kosovo, former Finnish President Marti
Ahtisaari, was publicly accused of having connections with the Albanian mafia in Kosovo.
Kosovo under the KLA, and George Soros had already developed commercial arrangements with the KLA to obtain concessions in Kosovo resources and utility companies, etc.
