UN knew about Kosovo organ trafficking, report says
By FRANCE 24 ^ | 16/02/2011

Posted on 02/16/2011 7:57:43 PM PST by DeaconBenjamin

A classified document obtained by FRANCE 24 suggests the United Nations knew about organ trafficking in postwar Kosovo as early as 2003, five years before prosecutors in The Hague first raised the issue.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was expected to deliver a report on the situation in Kosovo to the Security Council in New York on Wednesday, reaffirming UN support for investigations into human organ trafficking during Kosovo’s postwar period.

But a classified document obtained by FRANCE 24 indicates the UN knew of trafficking well before the issue was first raised by Carla del Ponte, a former prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, in her memoirs published in 2008.

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE CONFIDENTIAL UN DOCUMENT The report, dating from 2003, is an incomplete compilation of investigations carried out by UNMIK, the UN mission in Kosovo. It describes organ trafficking that took place from 1999 to 2000, immediately after Kosovo's NATO-backed independence war.

The document, also obtained by the Italian news agency TMnews, details how senior commanders of the guerilla Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) obtained and trafficked organs out of Kosovo and Albania.

The alleged victims were mostly Serbian men, but also included young women from other Eastern European countries. They were taken to clandestine detention centres and private homes in Albania where their vital organs were extracted, leading to their death, the report says.

The classified document also describes cases of torture, execution and burial of Serbs as retribution for crimes committed against ethnic Albanians.

Withholding information?

The 2003 document has never been presented to the European Union’s police and justice mission in Kosovo (EULEX), which is in charge of investigating crimes committed during the war.

The first public allegations of organ trafficking by del Ponte gained little notice. But a report commissioned by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) – a prominent European human rights body – and authored by Swiss lawmaker Dick Marty in late 2010 gained much more attention.

At the time these crimes were allegedly happening, tens of thousands of troops were deployed in Kosovo by the UN, as well as the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and NATO, to ensure the security of civilians.

course they knew like they knew that ethnic Albanians were cleansing serbs before the Serbs went in and even now.

I know becauase I was serving over there in Pristina etc and saw the Serbs under attack from these animals but of course our disgusting media and especially Christian Ammanpour was telliing lies and on the border giving only one side of the story.

Oh wait that’;s a bit like Egypt too.

Biggest lie ever told and just shows how stupid journalists are. All these ‘witnesses’ that were so specific were shown to be liars, by Dick Marty too, but journalists no longer read. The dirty, run house this supposedly happened is 4-5-6 hours by suv from the airport—which was under NATO total.

Thanks for posting, Deacon. The PDF of the original report linked in the article is a real stomach-turner. Prayers for the dead and for their families.

manc: Thank you for your service. I’m glad you’re home safe and sound with your family now.

Sadly this fits with the sex crime charges against the UN blue helmet “peacekeepers” in Kosovo and the experience the Italian Navy has with Albanian white slavers, drug runners and kidnap for extortion gangs. Favorite tactic: throw kids overboard so the Italians stop pursuit to rescue the kids.

There are and were no “blue helmet” peacekeepers in Kosovo. All NATO and under NATO (not UN) command. There was also a UN Mission (UNMIK), but it was strictly civilian.

Don’t ruin it for him, let him think that.

-—”The report, dating from 2003, is an incomplete compilation of investigations carried out by UNMIK”

Read the last page of the PDF and see what this is, it’s NOT an investigation, it’s what a journalist “the credibility of whom is untested” heard from some people. And UNMIK and EULEX went to house twice and found zilch, or they would filed charges. Dick Marty who said it happened but I can’t tell you details said that these witnesses were lying, since it supposedly happen in a different town, near Tirana. So many versions of the same lie. You cannot extract organs like that, even if you wanted to, any doctor will tell you.

End of the road for Kosovo organ claims?
By Nick Thorpe BBC News, Pristina, Belgrade and Tirana

For years rumours have circulated about Serbs abducted and killed for their organs in the months following the Kosovo war.

Three parallel international investigations, by war crimes investigators from Serbia, the European Union, and the Council of Europe, have failed to uncover any evidence that the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) trafficked the organs of captives, according to sources close to each investigation.

Dozens of predominantly Serb captives were allegedly taken to a “yellow house” near Burrel in central Albania from June 1999 to May 2000, where their organs were systematically removed and sold, according to accounts presented by Carla del Ponte, former war crimes prosecutor at The Hague Tribunal in her 2008 autobiography.

But the failure to find either the original sources, or any new evidence since 2004, may mean that the story was unfounded.

The Council of Europe report, due to be published next month by investigator Dick Marty, is expected to focus rather on political demands to the governments involved, rather than to uncover new facts.
Distraction

“The fact is that there is no evidence whatsoever in this case,” said Matti Raatikainen, head of the war crimes unit of Eulex, the European Law and Justice Mission in Kosovo.
Matti Raatikainen, head of the war crimes unit of Eulex Matti Raatikainen says the scandal has distracted from the search for remains

“No bodies. No witnesses. All the reports and media attention to this issue have not been helpful to us. In fact they have not been helpful to anyone.”

The main problem, he said, was that the scandal created by the allegations has distracted attention from the real work of finding the remains of 1,861 people still missing from the war and its aftermath, and prosecuting their killers - in Serbia, Kosovo and Albania.

We talked in his makeshift office in a cluster of containers at the Alpha-Bravo base near Pristina airport, as the latest May storm battered the roof.

Burly policemen came and went, surprised to find their boss talking to a journalist. Mr Raatikainen, a quiet Finnish policeman, is not known for his love of the media.
Loose ends

In 2009, a special BBC investigation found evidence of KLA detention camps in Albania, especially in the north-east Albanian town of Kukes. Earlier this month, Eulex made the first arrest in connection with that case.

Details have also emerged that Albanians suspected of disloyalty to the KLA were interrogated in a hotel in the Albanian coastal town of Durres, and transferred to Kukes.

But constant revelations in the Serbian press that new evidence, or new witnesses have emerged for the organ-trafficking allegations, have all proven either false, or unsubstantiated.

After the war in Kosovo, American journalist Michael Montgomery came across former KLA soldiers who said they had transported Serb and Albanian prisoners, dead and alive, across the border from Kosovo to Albania.

Three of his seven sources referred to the possibility of organ-trafficking, and identified the house near Burrel. But Montgomery was unsure, and handed a summary of his research over to the Office of Missing Persons and Forensics (OMPF) at the UN Mission in Kosovo.
Sources vanished

A team of UN and Hague Warcrimes Tribunal (ICTY) investigators, led by Matti Raatikainen, visited the house in February 2004.

A chemical spray, used in a downstairs room, found widespread traces of blood, of uncertain provenance, on the floor. Family members offered contradictory explanations.

Medical equipment appropriate for surgical interventions was found on the rubbish dump.

Some investigators wanted to pursue the case. Others felt the evidence, even then, was too thin.

Most serious of all, Montgomery’s original sources had disappeared. One was dead, killed in a supposedly unrelated case. The others could not be found.

Even the Serbian authorities, who have propagated the tale of the yellow house most consistently, have their doubts today.

“I still believe something happened there,” said a Belgrade source, close to the war crimes court, “but nothing on the scale of what has been suggested... and possibly not even connected to the KLA”.
Mass graves

Considering the apparent lack of evidence, experts suggest the Albanian government could help kill off a damaging story if only it were more open.
Pictures of missing Kosovan Albanians Investigators are still searching for the remains of hundreds of victims

UN special rapporteur Philip Alston said in February that “none of the efforts to investigate have received meaningful co-operation on the side of the government of Albania”.

“In order to get rid of this issue,” he urged Albania, “make available a proposal for an independent investigation and offer genuine co-operation.”

The end of the “fairy-tale” of organ-trafficking, as one Eulex prosecutor calls it, would still leave war crimes investigators with plenty to do.

This month, a mass grave was found near the southern Serbian town of Raska. Three lorry-loads of bodies - around 250 in total - believed to be Albanians killed by Serb forces in Kosovo, were reburied there in early June 1999.

The red soil encasing the bodies, according to eye-witnesses, suggests the bodies were originally buried in the Drenica valley in Kosovo, and moved to Serbia to destroy the evidence.

Prosecutors say they believe the Serbian military were responsible. Excavations at the same site two years ago failed to find the grave, which is now believed to lie beneath a car park and office building.
Revenge killings

Missing Serbs are also being found in Kosovo. The exhumation of up to 25 Serb victims of the KLA is due to start later this year in a coalmine in the town of Obilic/Obiliq. The coal was set on fire, and the mine shaft destroyed, to hide the evidence.

But the effort to find other victims is proving difficult.

“A lot of potential informants left,” said Alan Robinson, joint head of the OMPF.

“Other persons, who may know the whereabouts of the missing, may not be willing to talk... out of fear, or lack of interest.”

According to Eulex, 2,244 bodies have been identified in Kosovo since 2001. Of these 301 were “non-Albanian”, meaning Serb, Roma and others.

Some 228 were the bodies of Serbs who went missing after 10 June 1999, the end of the war, at a time of revenge killings by Kosovan Albanians. In total, around 13,500 are now believed to have been killed during the conflict, or immediately after it.

Dick Marty’s investigation for the Council of Europe into the organ-trafficking allegations is due to be published in late June. Exhumations at Raska will begin in August.

Tell me what she wrote and why didn’t she file charges? She wrote exactly what this report from a journalist said and magically all the 8 ‘credible witnesses’ disappeared before they could be questioned. What she and this report said has already been proved a major lie and laughed at. So there it goes, 8 ‘credible witnesses’ lied through their teeth.

#1 hint was that the house is so far from the airport that any organs would have ‘died’ before getting to the destination. And there’s no road to that house. Or electricity. Or water. Or phone. And it was supposedly done in the summer. And the owners are still living even though they know this big secret. And supposedly prisoners had one kidney removed and then sewn up to wait so the other would be taken later, in a barn. Sorry, but this is a bad SAW movie. Ask a transplant doctor about this and what it takes and see what he /she tells you. Human organs aren’t like watches or sweaters.

Recent coverage of this issue in UK paper

"Blair's Kosovo triumph turns sour"

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/kosovo/8211605/Blairs-Kosovo-triumph-turns-sour.html

By Tim Judah, Pristina 8:00AM GMT 19 Dec 2010

Dick Marty, the bespectacled and bearded Swiss senator who has been investigating some of the darkest corners of recent European history

He is a Swiss Senator and a Council of Europe investigator, not a journalist

pic here: http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01788/marty_1788589c.jpg

Switzerland's Council of Europe investigator Dick Marty speaks during the news conference

Actual Report is here: http://assembly.coe.int/ASP/APFeaturesManager/defaultArtSiteView.asp?ID=964

----

Another recent article is here:

"Kosovo leader implicated in organ trafficking: report

http://www.savekosovo.org/default.asp?p=6&leader=3

EULEX said in October it had charged five people, including doctors and a former senior health ministry official, for trafficking in human organs, organised crime, unlawful medical activities and abusing official authority.

Marty specifically named Thaci, one of the KLA leaders during the conflict with Serb security forces in 1998-1999, in his report.

Thaci, he said, was "the boss" of the Drenica Group, a "small but inestimably powerful group of KLA personalities" who took control of organised crime in the region from at least 1998.

... Claims of organ-trafficking in Kosovo first arose in the 2008 memoirs of former UN chief war crimes prosecutor Carla Del Ponte, prompting the Council of Europe investigation.

----

First I have watched this a long time and am convinced that the defenders of the KLA and Thaci on this issue know better, but are practising "dis-information" for the Muslim regime in Kosovo. The kind of "dis-information" that was practiced at the time of the Balkans War by the Croats and the Muslims. They won the Balkans War by that method. Lies.

Of course not! I actually appreciate fact checking and feedback, as I occasionally make mistakes, transpose digits, improperly co-relate UN and NATO and when referring to "Fort" anything, get the one nearby, but not the one I meant.

I also agree that accuracy is of utmost importance. The left, MSM, and Islamicists thrive on inaccuracy and created inaccurate public perception, the living examples of Goebbels law.

Bad Bad people in KLA.

Somebody over at Balkan blog sent me the link to this PDF file yesterday. I haven't had a chance to read it all and analyze it, but it appears to be an authentic report to KFOR, US and NATO from 2004. It isn't directly about the organ trafficking, it is however background on the kind of thugs we are dealing with in Kosovo and who and what their linkages are to other countries, to Islamic orgs and to organized crime.

We knew full well what we were dealing with -- as Texas Fossil said -- we've been propagandized with lies.

Ammanpour did her propaganda standing on that border with Albania and she never once told the facts of how the Serbs went in because it was to protect the Serbs.

Amanpour made her entire career on whipping up hatred toward the Serbs. That witch has more blood on her hands than al qaeda does. No one seemed to notice that she was born in Iran and was married to Clinton press secretary Jamie Rubin, making her the perfect propagandist. To this day, I can't stand looking at her.

Thank you for your service, and for telling us about what you did. Because for years, I used to see articles about our guys going over there to serve and cringe, thinking what kind of horrible system are we expecting our soldiers to support.

A few years ago, Julia Gorin talked about an officer returning from Kosovo who refused to wear his bars denoting his service in Kosovo for exactly the reasons you are talking about. It broke his heart, because he was long serving military.

I knew for sure that something was really, really wrong in Kosovo in 2000. We were in Greece and met a New Zealander on leave from the UN Judicial Mission in Kosovo -- he was a sweet man who burst into tears when he talked about Kosovo, pleading, "I didn't know. I didn't sign up for this. I really didn't know!" We hadn't argued or given him the least bit of a hard time about it; we had only mentioned the fact that Greeks gave us an extra discount on things when they saw our Montenegrin Serb last name. And from that point on this poor man started begging for our forgiveness for what he was doing. I knew that it was rough, this was less than a year after the NATO Bombing, but I had no idea how bad it was for Kosovo Serbs at that point. In fact, hundreds of thousands of them had fled or been driven out, and a substantial number had been murdered with impunity, but there was virtually nothing about it in the news back then.

BJ says, "Thank you for the statue, thugs!" While statues of dictators were getting torn down in Eastern Europe, the Albanians in Kosovo put this one up. The "decree" in Clinton's hand has the date that the NATO Bombing of Yugo began, just before the Albanians started gutting Serbs to sell their organs. Doesn't it just make us all proud?/s

You aren't alone in this whole thing "making you ill" -- it's what even the idea of this organ-trafficking does to a normal person -- further proving that anyone who would do such a thing or defend it, isn't normal at all.

All is fair when Serbs are the target according to NATO because NATO created the target.

The fact of the matter is “journalists” are part of the military machine. They are the tip of the spear for ALL military operations for global and domestic political interests.

Truth is the first victim in any such situation. “Journalists” make sure all information is used to further the military/political interests they are assigned to defend. Sure they will argue but that's all show. The end must be reached by whatever means necessary. Heritage does not matter, truth does not matter, ethnicity does not matter, religion does not matter, justice does not matter.....everything is for sale.

In the end, I always remind people that there is a judge who is not on the UN, NATO payroll. Truth will win. Have faith in Him and there isn't a court in the world that will be able to imprison your soul. Injustice will become justice and all the things that evil men do will be revealed for all to see.

You can tell that the guy is more used to riding a donkey, because that's how he's sitting the horse. He has no clue how to ride a horse.

The decoration between the horse's eyes could be fatal in battle; if he had to whip around quickly, it would hit the horse in the eye.

This guy might as well have, "I'm stupid. Kill me." written on his forehead --but maybe he won't need to, as the horse will probably take care of it for him!

I'm laughing myself silly now. Yep, he was probably one of those donkey jockey drugsNguns mules back in the day, and that's how he got rewarded with his fancy outfit. Remember way back before Operation Allied Farce when the late not-so-great Holbrooke said the KLA were a bunch of "terrorists" and "Che Guavera wanna-bes"? This guy sure fits the bill. The only smart one in the picture is the horse. He seems to know the score and may well throw that idiot off his back in the end. Again, thanks for the mention of the Balkan blog.

the guy was correct.

Ammanpour told a bunch of lies , used her husband to defend the ethnic Albanians to wage war on the Serbs.

When we got there we started to see how we was lied to , how it was the Serbs under attack in their homeland.

It's still like this today and what did we do?
We helped to ethnic cleanse them from their homeland, helped radicals take over an area and ruined a country as well as killing so many .

Clinton lied no one died, yea right I guess they forget that war, Iraq , Africa,etc
Ammanpour has blood on her hands and she was stoking the fires again over Egypt

I agree, but anyone who purposefully lies about it, is a bigger savage. Take your meds before posting next time, it’s OK.

That statue the koranimals put up for the Impeached One is a narcissists’ wet dream come true.

You should definitely post that more often, BB.

I know becauase I was serving over there in Pristina etc and saw the Serbs under attack from these animals but of course our disgusting media and especially Christian Ammanpour was telliing lies and on the border giving only one side of the story.

Thanks for your service and for shedding light & verifying what we knew was happening as true

But Hillary keeps up "the good work":

US congratulates Kosovo on independence day

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton congratulated Kosovo Thursday on the third anniversary of its declaration of independence, saying the United States was committed to its future......

Makes me crazy thinking that my tax dollars are supporting this!

FormerLib: Indeed, a good day that was. Remember when vooch caught RBJ out on this thread for claiming he saw stuff cited in Misha Glenny's book? (See posts 128 and 129.) Poor RBJ was seriously unhinged.

montyspython: Yes indeedy. Good one. I've missed your wicked wit.

Nice to "see" both of you again!

mewy-—Your points are unsustainable on many levels: proof, evidence, bias, etc.

The evidence has become available to all - too late to stop the formation of this criminal narco state - and documents all show what was done to the Serbian people by the savage Muslim Albanians...who have been committing savageries for a long time.

Advice: You need to educate yourself if you are truly interested in facts. Otherwise you betray your bias in favor of Muslim goons.

You’re absolutely RIGHT!!!!

But he kept coming back, over and over again, in different disguises.

I hope that the current idiot troll is not Ronly Bonly Jones in a new disguise. He’s not using the trademarked RBJ language—yet.

Besides that, his timing is off.

Haven’t seen you around on many of the Balkan threads, welcome to the meat grinder. You’ll notice there are plenty of so called “conservatives “ here on FR who will quickly turn up the apologetics for muslim filth when discussing Balkan topics. Quite sad really.

Look forward to your contribution.
