Posted on 03/09/2009 12:06:46 PM PDT by nameless-fool
SKOPJE -- Skopje has no official information on the claims that there was trafficking of Albanians' organs through Macedonia during the Kosovo conflict.
Albanian language media in Kosovo recently picked up articles in Macedonian papers in Albanian that the organs of Kosovo Albanians listed missing were "harvested and sold to Russians by Serbs".
The Macedonian Interior Ministry (MUP) told the Beta news agency that this is the first time they have heard these allegations, and that there have been no demands for investigations.
A similar statement was given by the Macedonian Foreign Ministry as well.
The Albanian language daily Lajm, printed in Skopje, stated that there are suspicions that the bodies of 20 Kosovo Albanians are buried in a Skopje cemetery, which the administration of the Butel cemetery is denying, telling Beta that every funeral is registered in its book-keeping.
Serbian War Crimes Prosecution Spokesperson Bruno Vekarić said that the story is a political reaction to an investigation into KLA crimes against Kosovo's Serbs, adding that the prosecution is prepared to investigate that case as well if it is true.
We do not deal with politics, we keep to the process matters. If all this is true, we are ready to investigate it to the end, Vekarić said, adding that the Serbian prosecution expects the same stance from the Albanian prosecution when it comes to the Serb victims.
Serbia has opened a probe into the case of missing Kosovo Serbs after former Hague Chief Prosecutor Carla Del Ponte wrote in her book that there were investigations of suspected organ harvesting operations in North Albania.
The case of the kidnapped Serbs who are believed to have been killed in northern Albania in 1999, after their vital organs were harvested, is also investigated by Council of Europe rapporteur Dick Marty, who is due in Belgrade at the end of the month.
I’m not sure but is Hammond still making them in Indiana?
The dark side of socialized medicine.
More Albanian (muslim) victimhood. Like the non existant mass graves, and the little Albanian (muzzie) boy who was drowned in the river by Serb thug-boys, which sparked a gang of will armed Armainian “victims” to march over and shoot at unarmed old Serb Baba’s and burn down their churches.
As we’ve all seen, the story is that KLA thugs were harvesting the organs of captured Serbs for export.
Of course there’s no evidence of the opposite of reality occurring!
What are you talking about? Please elaborate. What constitutes a "mass grave" to you?
Who has seen it? There have been accusations and and a ICTY investigation that yielded no results, just claims hoping to sell a book. Now it's time to investigate these claims as well, they are 2000 Albanians still missing.
So the fool is back...let me help you.
The Skopje govt propaganda machine in bed with the KLA is making a statement about organs - And Kim Il Sung proclaims that all children are well fed and healthy in North Korea.
That clears everything up /SARC/
do Skopians (?) beat their wives as well, unlike the Serbs?
For the record, FYROM-ans are Orthodox Christians as well. Do they count? I know the Georgians are bad because they are sucking up to the mortal enemy—the East.
Talking about lies and denial:
“I asked him why he had had the famous Sarajevo National Library burned down. Given that he himself wanted to be known as a psychiatrist and a poet, was he afraid of books and their human and humanist truth?
Red-faced with anger, pounding the table, he claimed it was the Muslims themselves who had burned down the building from the inside.
I objected. I had seen the library in ruins: the damaged walls, the artillery scars. The building had been attacked from the outside.
No point in arguing - the pigheaded Karadzic denied it all.”
That’s Elie Wiesel recounting his meeting with Karadzic.
More nonsense for the newbie, thanks for the laugh.
You are a fool.
Like a open mouthed fish swimming through murky waters you swallow the liberal press lies that are fed to you like so many pellets.
Mr Wiesel is probably a decent man but like so many other decent and smart people he was swindled by Bernie Madoff as well as by the anti Semite Tudjman and the Muslims.
He says that he cannot forgive Madoff over the loss of all his funds - he trusted him you see - but a person like him of a higher sense of justice should be willing to accept the responsibility of being deceived by his Muslim and fascist friends.
Does anyone have details on this “Kosovo re-Christianization” plan I’ve been hearing about? I don’t have much in the way of details, but an old Serb-Canadian friend of mine, said that a large group among the millions in the Serb Diaspora— Serb-Canadians, Serb-Americans, Serbs in Britain, Serb-Australians— is organizing an effort to bring Christians from the Serb Diaspora back into Kosovo, to build churches there (throughout Kosovo) both in areas where churches were razed and otherwise.
It’s a peaceful effort, though obviously with armed guards in the more tense areas, but since the Serb diaspora in these countries still have citizenship rights in Kosovo (which is still within Serbia under international law), they have the right to build churches within Kosovo. So that’s what they’re doing. And since arrogant Britain (one of the anti-Christian leaders of the hate-Serb group in the West, right behind Bill Clinton himself), Canada and Australia (one of the early recognizers of Kosovo) are all Dhimmified already, I have no qualms about Serb Diaspora leaving them to help bring Christianity back to Kosovo. The Muslim Kosovars would be welcome in Dhimmified Britain, Canada and Australia anyway.
Also, word is it that this is one of the first examples of Serb-Croatian cooperation, since this organization (whatever its name) was founded in part by a Croat expat, who sees the threat of Muslim Dhimmitude within Kosovo— with participation also by Macedonians, Montenegrins and Bosnians.
Anyway, sounds like a great idea to me, but I haven’t been able to get further details on it. Anyone here know more about this effort?
Pinging for input
Yeah, just as more information comes out that Organ Snatching DID occur, you find some BS article like that one!:
More than one organ snatching location?
2 March 2009
In Albania, in addition to the yellow house, there could be at least three more similar locations.
They are suspected to be sites where vital organs were taken from kidnapped Kosovo Serbs and other non-Albanians.
A B92 TV investigative team traveled to Albania on the basis of new evidence and information revealing that in, in addition to the yellow house described in former Hague Chief Prosecutor Carla Del Pontes book, there were at least three similar locations.
Hundreds of Kosovo’s Serbs went missing during and after the 1999 war in the province. The Serbian War Crimes Prosecution is investigating claims that Kosovo Albanian KLA had taken them to northern Albania in order to remove their vital organs, later sold in the black market.
A broadcast based on the teams investigation airs tonight, containing exclusive footage taken in Albania and interviews with doctors from the transplant division at Mother Theresa University Hospital in Tirana, where 75 patients were transferred in 1999 due to failed kidneys.
Looking at Del Pontes claims, the investigative team attempted to verify information from the War Crimes Prosecution that just as NATO was attacking Serbia several kidney transplants were conducted for Kosovo patients, with organs taken out of the kidnapped Serbs.
The team spoke with doctors from the Skopje University Hospital in Macedonia, where 70 patients were transferred from Kosovo during the same period.
Officials in Skopje say transplants did not take place at that time.
Nevertheless, in contrast to his Albanian colleagues, a Skopje nephrologists who spoke with the team said he believes Del Pontes claims.
The Serbian prosecution is also investigating whether the Hague Tribunal had destroyed material evidence found in the Albanian town of Burrel during a probe conducted in 2004.
In an exclusive interview, one of UNMIKs investigators in Burrel said he was “taken aback” by such information.
The investigator will discuss the importance of this evidence, found in 2004 in the yellow house.
In addition to exclusive interviews and footage from Albania, the show contains information about 11 people suspected of having been murdered in the vicinity of the yellow house in central Albania after being kidnapped.
Evidence? Where is it? The slav doctor in FYROM believing the allegations? I thought the organs were sold, now we are supposed to believe that as 700,000 people were thrown out, with many beaten wounded and raped, Albania’s third world doctors found the time to perform organ transplants with ‘stolen’ Serbian organs on 70 Kosovo patients?
Since Serbia is asking for an investigation, Albanians should ask for one too. At least with Serbia there is a starting point to look at: are the Albanian victims buried in mass graves missing any organs?
So the Albanians are now just trying to muddy the waters with these new allegations. It's BS!
Organ trading, like the one that goes on in virtually every country in the world? http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=5go&q=illegal+organ+trading&btnG=Search
There is no need to muddy the waters for the serbs and Russians, it’s dark enough already. Are the Serbs, after being found guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity trying to smear others? Claiming victimhood is a Serbian trademark http://www.google.com/search?q=serbian+victimhood&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
Serbs even claimed that genocide was committed against them in Kosovo.
No, it goes on in "hubs" and Albania is one of them, which is why the Council of Europe singled it out. And unlike Albania, nmost don't involve ripping the organs out of living children. If you'd do that to your own kids, you'd do it to anyone!
Claiming victimhood is a Serbian trademark And "blaming the victim" is a "Muslim trademark". Gee, did that PR agency you & the Bosnian Muslims & Croats hired years ago, decide to recycle that for use on the Christian Serbs?
