(ICITAP) US Mafia – Albania-Kosovo Highway Costs Soar To 2 Billion Euros – Frank Wisner, Tom Ridge, Christopher Dell,

Der US Polizei – und Justiz Aufbau (ICITAP) ist die wohl lächerlichste CIA Operation gewesen, welche man sich vorstellen konnte.Europa schweigt, zur Infiltrierung der Sicherheits Apparate von Albanien, Balkan, bis zur Ukraine und Mongolia. Man sucht nur korrupte Deppen, die dafür u.a. privaten Drogen- und Drogen Schmuggel organisieren dürfen, was lt. Albaner, von den USA geduldet wird.

Als Gadaffi, die Verträge mit Bechtel kündigte, nur noch in € abrechnen wollte, wurde er hinweg gebombt.

Die Betrugs und US Mafiöse Organisation “ICITAP”, Schutzschirm für kriminelle Geschäfte aller Art in der Welt

In Bosnien hatte man den langjährigen  ICITAP Leiter schon einmal aus dem Amte entfernt. ICITAP, dient der Absicherung von Weltweiten Betrugs Geschäften, der US Diplomaten und sonstigen Gangster.  Vieles wird erklärbar, wie Personen eines Hashim Thaci, Ramuz Haradinaj, oder Ilir Meta, den Bosnischen Banditen rund um Izbegovic. am 31.3.2015 wurde der US Albaner und Interpol … Die Betrugs und US Mafiöse Organisation “ICITAP”, Schutzschirm für kriminelle Geschäfte aller Art in der Welt weiterlesen

26 Milliarden $ haben die selben kriminellen Trotteln  mit ihrer Klientel Politik im Irak, für Polizei und Militär Aufbau ausgegeben: für Nichts. Es geht nur um den Verkauf von nicht bedienbaren  und überteuerten Militär Gütern im Irak und überall. Identisch Heckler & Koch, mit den Deutschen Politik Ganoven.

Wie die Princetown Universtität feststellte, sind die USA keine Demokratie und Paul Craig Roberts, Ex-stellv. Finanzminister sagt, das die US Regierung vollkommen korrupt ist. und Betrug zum System erklärt hat.

Deshalb ging Alles schief im Balkan, Irak, Afghanistan, weil man oft wie in der Ukraine, die übelsten Ja-Sager und  Gangster finanzierte. Wirtschafts Monopole errichten, gehört zum Betrugs System, wo das Deutsche Flugplatz Geschäft (AAEF ist auch beteiligt) dazu gehört.Partner die Prominenz der kriminellen Clans, oder sogenannte Oligarchen. Bestehende Gesetze, über Ausschreibungs Verfahren, werden ignoriert. Alles bekant auch durch eine US Kongreß Anhörung in 2003, das die USA ihre Gangster in den Balkan exportieren, als Partner von Politikern.*

“Freie Fahrt”, für Verbrecher – die illegalen “Immunitäts Gesetze” für Albanien Investoren

Man muss sich den CIA Sauhaufen heute so vorstellen, das es eine Abteilung „red“ und eine Abteilung „blue“ gibt, wobei „red“ die Gangster Truppe mit Terroristen und Kriminellen, für die übelsten Geschäfte Weltweit, steht. Man kauft Gestalten ein, die man über Abhör Aktionen kontrolliert und installiert das als Politiker. Im Gegenzug ist man Straffrei, wo Hashim Thaci, Fatos Nano, Salih Berisha, Ilir Meta heute deutlich sichtbar steht. Hinzu kommen diverse Aussenminister der EU, ja sogar Premier Minister.

Abteilung „Red“ erklärt ein Deutscher Ex-Minister:

Deshalb zerstörte man den EU Polizei Aufbau, weil man Kriminelle brauchte für Geschäfte, wie es üblich ist bei den ICITAP Programmen. Eines der übelsten Monopol Geschäfte für den Container Scann im Durres Hafen,

http://www.rapiscansystems.com/images/site/rapiscan_systems_logo.png

für die US Firma Rapiscan, wurde von der Regierung inzwischen storniert. Natürlich wie andere Lizensen im Hafen,  ohne jede Ausschreibung, mit der Sokol Olldashi Mafia. Eine bekannte Betrugs Firma der US Politiker, wie die Skandale in den USA zeigen. Identisch wie die Überwachungs Kamera in Tirana, der Polizei ein Bestechungs Geschäft war.

Das Geschäft von GE, mit Fatos Nano inklusive Casino Besuch in den USA und in Korfu, um die Elektrifizierung der Durres-Tirana Eisenbahn Strecke, plumpe Bestechung, die in einem Abitrage Gericht endete, wo Albanien 20 Millionen $ Schadens Ersatz leisten muss.

Neben einer Idiotie Polizei in Albanien waren die Folge  die Milliarden Betrügereien der Amerikaner vor allem mit Bechtel, bei dem Autobahn Bau, wo die US Botschafter eine sehr unrühmliche Rolle spielten, ja sogar Motor des Betruges wie im Kosovo mit Christopher Dell waren, der natürlich dann Chef Lobbyist für Afrika wurde bei Bechtel, nach seinem Ausscheiden als Diplomat. Standard Wissen: Baufirmen rechnen mit ihren Politischen Partnern Material Preise ab, die 3-700 % überhöht sind, ebenso wird die Asphalt Decke dann eben ein paar Zentimeter dünner, überall im Balkan. Man unerzeichnete sogar mit Saddam Verträge, für neue Chemie Fabriken für die Gift Gas Herstellung.

Viele Fragen an die  EU Geldgeber wie Diplomatie wie Pieter Feith, sind offen, wie man den Betrug überall nun seit Jahren finanziert, die lokalen Medien ignoriert und immer neue Millionen auch in eine vollkommen korrupte Kosovo Regierung, mit 50 Vize Ministern hineinpumpt. Warum schreibt Europa, über dieses kriminellen Treiben der Amerikaner, vor Ort?? Weil man selbst in „Camorra“ Art, versucht identisch abzuzocken.

Man will Geschäfte machen und will die Justiz und Polizei unter Kontrolle bringen, ein Modell der EU und Westlichen Werte Gemeinschaft, um eigene hoch kriminelle Geschäfte abzusichern: Frank Wisner ist dann bei den Amerikaner ein besonderer Sonderfall und diverse US Botschafter machten den Absturz in die Kriminalität, in Drogen und Waffen Handel in Albanien: William E. Ryerson, Marisa R. Lino (private Waffen Geschäfte), Josef Limprecht (eliminiert Mitte Mai 2002, als Haupt Drogen Küchen Bauer in Pakistan für die Afghanen und eigener Import von Heroin nach Albanien, wie Waffen Handel mit Terroristen), Marie Ries, Der neue US Botschafter Donald Lu, ist ein uralter Partner des Gangster Frank Wisner, schon in den grossen Betrugs Geschäften in Indien, mit ENRON oder der Folgen des Gift Gas Unfalles von Bhopal Partner war.  .Das Modell wird dann von korrupten Deutschen Entwicklungs Ministern auch nur Weltweit kopiert wird.

Super Skandal again: the US Mafia US Ambassador Christoph Bell and Marchie Ries (later Ambassador in Sofia)

Der gesamte Polizei Aufbau der Amerikaner mit den U.S. Department of Justice’s International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP) Programmen, war ein CIA Operation um private Geschäfte zu tätigen, abzudecken, weswegen eine Justiz unerwünscht war. Identisch der AAEF, USAID finanziert bis zur American Bank of Albania, als Geldwäsche und Betrugs Unternehmen. Das war im Detail auch jedem Bundeswehr Offizier in 2005 bekannt. Aber für die Geschäfte der Politik Kreise auch von Frank Walter Steinmeier und der Lobby Vereine unterwünscht, wie auch Griechenland vor allem zeigte.

Die gute EU und Deutsche Polizei Aufbau bis PAMECA II, wurde sabotiert für diese Art von Geschäfte. Der Justiz Aufbau der Deutschen und EU, wurde im Gefolge korrupter EU und Deutscher Zirkel ebenso verhindert und sabotiert bis heute.

Albania-Kosovo Highway Costs Soar To 2 Billion Euros

Cache of official documents detail for first time how lobbying, poor-planning, “uncompetitive tenders”, failure to set cost caps and “inflated” prices left Albanian and Kosovan taxpayers with a two billion euro bill for just 137km of road.

The ‘Patriotic Highway’ slices its way through one of the poorest and most remote corners of Europe, where many villagers still live on the breadline, struggling to make ends meet.

This four-lane, 137km stretch of asphalt connecting the Albanian and Kosovan capitals has drained in the region of two billion euros from the state coffers of both nations – diverting funds from other much-needed infrastructure projects, such as the building of schools, hospitals and minor roads, many of which remain unpaved.

Following a six-month investigation, BIRN is now publishing previously unreleased documents from Kosovo and Albania that detail the scale of mismanagement and spiralling costs that have so far sparked three investigations into alleged corruption, abuse of office and wrongdoing linked to the contract.

Built on the premise of creating wealth from increased trade and tourism, the final price tags for the road at least doubled in both countries from those initially quoted.

Trade between Albania and Kosovo has seen only a modest increase since the road opened last year, but it has not led to the queues of trucks commonly seen at other Balkan borders. Experts estimate the road is being used at just 10 per cent of its capacity.

On the other hand, construction firm Bechtel-Enka pocketed profits running into hundreds of millions of euros thanks in part, critics argue, to a contract “heavily weighted” in their favour, high pricing and tax rebates.

Fast-track tender

The contract to build the first stage of the highway – connecting Tirana with the Kosovo border – was awarded in 2006 in a fast-track procurement process, which the World Bank and others argued was uncompetitive and unlawful.

US construction giant Bechtel and its Turkish partner, Enka, won the contract to build a 60km mountainous section for 418 million euros.

The US Embassy helped override World Bank and IMF concerns over the handling of the Albanian tender process, arguing the road would boost the economies of both Kosovo and Albania.

In the end, costs escalated with Tirana eventually shelling out 950m euros for the road, according to a leaked email from the then Minister of Finance, Ridvan Bode.

The contract to build the Kosovo section was awarded in April 2010 to the same partnership, following lobbying by the then US ambassador to Kosovo, Christopher Dell.

Dell has since been hired by Bechtel as a country director in Africa, raising questions among observers about the probity of the deal.

A Bechtel spokeswoman Michael Michelle strongly denied any impropriety and insisted Dell had followed US State Department rules as soon as the company approached him with a potential job offer as he prepared to leave Kosovo, including recusing himself from any matters related to the firm.

But a senior diplomat, Andrea Capussela, who had been charged with supervising Kosovo’s economy, called for the State Department to review Dell’s support for the scheme in light of the former ambassador’s new job.

There is no suggestion Dell did not comply with US “revolving door” regulations. While there is a one-year “cooling off” period before former ambassadors can lobby the US government on behalf of a private firm, they are not prevented from taking a job in the private sector with a company they helped secure a contract for.

Costs in Kosovo escalated too after the government failed to heed its own legal advice and set a fixed price for the road. The cost rose from 400 million for 102km of highway to 838 millon euros for 77km.

Bechtel-Enka received more from the Kosovan public purse in 2011, 2012, and 2013 than any other ministry. At the same time, other infrastructure projects, including new schools, were put on hold.

BIRN has obtained key material gathered for the aborted prosecution of Lulzim Basha – the Albanian politician who signed the deal in Tirana – on charges of abuse of office related to the contract.

The documents reveal that Bechtel-Enka’s prices were known to be more than double that of local contractors, costing Albanian taxpayers an extra 191 million euros.

According to the prosecution papers, “all the prices submitted by the winning company are many times higher than the Albanian prices”. The figures were compiled by two state auditors who produced a 158-page report, until now unpublished, detailing problems with the highway contract.

The findings formed the basis of the prosecution’s case against Basha and two of his advisers, Andi Toma and Armand Telti. All denied any wrongdoing and the case was dropped in 2009 on a legal technicality.

‘No price limit, no plan’

The prosecution team argues that because the contract was signed off without an agreed cost limit or detailed construction plan, the price spiralled seemingly out of control.

Prosecutors also criticised the appointment of Ecorys, the Dutch consultancy firm hired to pick the winning bid, as “unlawful” because the firm’s role was announced before the council of ministers even approved the decision to appoint a consultant.

The fast-track tender process – in which four shortlisted firms were evaluated on their ability to do the job without having to provide a price – was described by prosecution investigators as contrary to national and international law.

Claims that Bechtel-Enka were given the contract despite the absence of an agreed construction plan or cost limits have also been made by Niko Naska, the only Albanian member of a five-man tender evaluation committee, in an exclusive interview with BIRN.

“My first question was: ‘Is there a project [plan], did anybody look at this carefully?’ But there was no project [plan] at all. How can you build something without a construction plan, especially such a big infrastructure project like that, that goes from 400m to almost one billion euros?

“How could I, an engineer with years of experience who has built power plants and ports, stoop to such a level and accept being a part of that tender?”

Naska told BIRN he was asked to take part in the evaluation with just one day’s notice, despite being unable to follow proceedings conducted in English. He quit after one day.

“They [the government] called me the night before telling me that I was chosen by Prime Minister Sali Berisha, who said a lot of good things about me … but I didn’t know anything about the tender so how could I be part of it?” he said.

He also said he had not been given access to any tender documents written in Albanian.

In the end, the four remaining members of the evaluation committee selected Bechtel-Enka and negotiations over a target price began.

The then transport minister Basha argued at the time that Bechtel-Enka was selected transparently and the fast-track method was needed as a year’s delay would cost 75 million euros – 60 million euros from the economic boost and 15 million euros in increased costs. No evidence was ever presented to justify these sums.

BIRN asked Basha, who is now leader of the opposition Democratic Party and mayor of Tirana, a series of questions related to the highway, but he refused to comment.

A US diplomatic cable, also published by Wikileaks in 2009, detailed the scale of poor logistical and financial planning.

According to the memo by an official at the US Embassy in Tirana, Bechtel had first estimated that seven million metric tonnes of earth would need to be excavated, that grew to 14 million when the contract was awarded in 2006 and stood at 32 million by April 2009 more than a year before the Albanian section of the highway was completed.

The cable noted that despite the cost increase, the road remained “very profitable for Bechtel”.

US smoothed way for Bechtel

INVESTIGATION FINDINGS – AT A GLANCE•    Costs doubled from initial quotes costing Kosovan and Albanian taxpayers around two billion euros•    Contracts in both countries were signed without set price limits or construction plans•    A series of international organisations – including the World Bank and senior EU diplomats – advised Tirana and Pristina against signing the deals•    Pristina signed despite warnings from its own legal adviser that the deal was “heavily weighted” in Bechtel-Enka’s favour and did not adhere to industry standard terms•    Bechtel-Enka received more Kosovo government funds from 2011 to 2013 than any single ministry•    The US ambassador who lobbied for Bechtel in Kosovo has since been hired by the firm•    The only Albanian appointed to assess the highway bids resigned after just one day because he believed the tender process was flawed•    Three investigations have so far been launched linked to the highway deal with the first, in Albania, dropped on a legal technicality

Bechtel-Enka’s proposal also drew sharp criticism from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, which eventually refused to back the project or help Tirana fund it.

In a diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks from 2006 entitled “Impediment to Bechtel’s bid to build key section of highway”, Marcie B. Ries, (later in Irak, and US Emmbassador Sofia- Bulgaria)  then US ambassador to Albania, said she would help the government overcome the World Bank’s objections as a new highway “would not only help Albania’s trade, but Kosovo’s as well”.

US involvement went beyond support from the embassy. Ries wrote that Basha had told her a former US homeland security secretary, Tom Ridge, was advising Tirana on the deal. Ridge had been brought in on a 40,000 dollar-a-month contract to advise the government on its bid for NATO membership and establish links with Washington DC.

According to the same memo, Orsalia Kalantopoulos, World Bank regional coordinator for South-East Europe, told the government in Tirana that she strongly opposed the four-lane project, that Bechtel’s selection was “non-competitive” and that the highway should be downgraded to two lanes to reduce costs.

Fresh claims of wrongdoing linked to the deal emerged two weeks ago in Albania, after Minister of Finance Shkelqim Cani announced a new investigation into the financing of the highway via a 250 million euro bank loan. 

Albania was not able to borrow from international financial institutions because both the World Bank and IMF had advised against the highway project. The country was forced to look to commercial banks, allegedly borrowing at above market rates.

This latest investigation is unrelated to the now-dropped prosecution of Basha and his advisers, which focused on the terms of the contract and soaring prices.

Socialist Party MP Erjon Brace, a long-term opponent of the Bechtel-Enka scheme, said his party did not oppose the construction of a new road to Kosovo, but the scheme was poorly planned and has left Albania’s economy in tatters.

“There was no tender, no plan at all and no price cap for it. Even the World Bank and IMF were against this kind of procedure, they said that the tender was carried out without the necessary funding being in place,” he says.

Brace called for the original case, dismissed on a legal technicality, into the terms of the contract to be reopened so the evidence can be tested in court. Despite regular stories in the Albanian press speculating on the case reopening, the Prosecutor General’s office told BIRN it had made no decision on the matter.

Kosovo costs doubled

Criticism and concerns over the deal are mirrored in neighbouring Kosovo, where the cost of the highway also more than doubled from the initial price quoted by Bechtel-Enka.

The Kosovo section, already expensive at 400 million euros for 102 km, eventually spiralled to 820 million euros for 77 km, according to an unpublished report compiled by highway supervisors Hill International and released to BIRN under Freedom of Information laws.

Figures from the Ministry of Finance suggest Bechtel-Enka was paid 838 million euro, more than Hill International reports, while the government had to find a further 128 million euros to acquire privately owned land.

Capussela, the Italian diplomat tasked with supervising Kosovo’s economy after its 2008 declaration of independence, told BIRN the signing of the contract between Kosovo and Bechtel amounted to a “political crime”.

“Picture the number of hospitals and schools and text books and computers and more useful roads that could have been built with that money spent on the highway,” he said.

Kosovan construction firms say the prices quoted by the US-Turkish consortium, and published for the first time today by BIRN, are also “two or three times” those offered by local firms.

Haziz Rysha, director of one of Kosovo’s biggest road builders Eskavatori, pointed out that 125 mm diameter PVC ducts cost around four euro per metre in Kosovo – while Bechtel charged Pristina 29 euros per metre, more than seven times the local market price.

Another company director, who asked not to be named, added the only section of the highway built by local firms cost Pristina two million euros per kilometre, compared to the 11.4m euros per kilometre that Bechtel-Enka charged.

A spokeswoman for Bechtel said: “We leave it up to our customers to discuss the costs of their projects. However, it is important to note that both motorways used a design-build approach meaning that construction began before the designs were completed.”

US ignored EU concerns

International diplomat Pieter Feith, tasked by the EU and the US with supervising Kosovo after its 2008 declaration of independence, told BIRN the US embassy and its ambassador, Christopher Dell, stopped him “from doing my job”.

Feith left Kosovo’s International Civilian Office (ICO) as it shut in 2012. He says that during his time in office, “Dell told me in very clear terms that I should not poke my nose into the Bechtel contract – that was none of my business and this was a commercial matter between the United States and Kosovo”.

Feith, who was also the EU’s highest representative in Kosovo, was worried the contract with Bechtel would wreck the young country’s fragile finances, and argued the money could be better spent on tackling Kosovo’s 45 per cent unemployment rate. 

“Information was withheld, and all of a sudden we were presented with a fait accompli of this contract being concluded and being a liability on the budget.”

Dell declined to be interviewed but has previously defended the highway selection process, claiming it was one of the most transparent in Kosovo’s history.

Pristina’s own legal advisers, UK firm Eversheds, urged the government not to sign up, arguing the contract was heavily weighted in favour of Bechtel-Enka.

The Evershed document, now published in full by BIRN for the first time, warned that signing the contract would be “extremely dangerous”.

The law firm identified numerous areas where the standard contract for major infrastructure projects – the Federation of Consulting Engineers’ Red Book – had been amended “in a completely one-sided way”.

It also argued that Bechtel had “simply ignored” the tender guidelines for a fixed price and suggested that the procurement process might have to be rerun. This advice was ignored.

Bechtel-Enka maintains its proposal did comply with government guidelines. The firm argues it saved the government hundreds of millions of euros by devising a new route for the road, avoiding costly tunnels. It added that the project would have “economic benefits [that] extend well beyond Kosovo”.

Eversheds’ advice was issued in January 2010 and while some changes were made before the final signing of the deal three months later, many of the controversial clauses were retained.

The Kosovo contract is now being investigated by prosecutors at the EU rule-of-law mission in Kosovo, EULEX. Sources close to the investigation say EULEX is scrutinising the government’s decision to sign the highway deal.

While the target of the inquiry has not been disclosed, it is believed to be focused on whether or not the contract damaged Kosovo’s economy. There is no evidence to suggest Bechtel, Enka or Dell are implicated in any of the current or past investigations.

Bechtel-Enka was also exempt from paying tens of millions of euros of Value Added Tax in both Albania and Kosovo.

Kosovo construction firm Eskavatori boss Rysha stressed that local firms are not afforded these tax breaks, which ensured Bechtel-Enka received a 113 million euro rebate in Kosovo alone. It is likely Bechtel-Enka received a similar figure in Albania.

Officials from the Prime Minister’s office and Ministry of Infrastructure in Pristina refused to answer questions about the scheme and its impact on the economy.

At the road’s opening ceremony in November 2013, President Atifete Jahjaga, described the road as “a national dream and is now a national reality”. Prime Minister Hashim Thaci said it would cut journey times by up to three-quarters and contribute to “our future economic and social growth”.

“The Highway Is Little Used”

As various institutions try to figure out how a 134 km stretch of motorway could end up costing so much, ordinary Kosovans and Albanians continue to suffer because funds were diverted to pay Bechtel-Enka.

While key players have bagged top jobs, and Bechtel-Enka have landed another huge infrastructure project – the 600 million euro Pristina to Skopje road – the highway has failed to deliver much in the way of economic benefits.

Despite the huge investment, trade between the two countries has not strengthened markedly.

According to Kosovo’s Agency of Statistics, 10.3 per cent of all Kosovo exports went to Albania in 2005, while the figure in 2011 had increased to just 10.8.

Official figures show that exports from Albania to Kosovo in 2005 accounted for only 1.6 per cent of Kosovo’s total imports. In 2011, the figure was 3.9 per cent.

“This road is working at just 10 per cent of its full capacity,” said Kosovo construction tycoon and politician Behgjet Pacolli. „Something has to change in our economic cooperation to make that road serve the country’s economy.”

Even the man put in charge of managing the highway admits its take-up has been poor.

Lahudin Myrtaj, head of highway supervision within the Ministry of Infrastructure, said the new highway was the best in the Balkans, but that it would not be well used until it is connected to other regional routes.

“The highway is little used because it is mainly used by citizens going for summer vacations in Albania,” he said.

“When the highway is connected with the region and goes up to Istanbul, then we plan to install tolls because it will be used more by the business community.”

Until then, the road will remain in the eyes of many little more than a luxury Kosovo and Albania can ill afford.

Höhepunkt der Mafiösen Klientel Politik, mit Idioten und um die Wahlen zu fälschen. Warum die Polizei als “malok” verschrieen ist, inklusive des Bujar Nishani und Flamur Noka, kann nicht verwundern. Es erinnert an 1996, wo bereits allgemein bekannt war, das Ziegenhirten und Analphabeten Polizei Chefs sind, im System Sali Berisha und extrem Kriminelle Innenminister, wie Agron Musaraj. Heute sind die Innenminister nur noch dümmer und ihre Polizei Direktoren. wikileaks:  Alles bekannt, wie korrupt die hohen Ränge der Albanischen Staatspolizei sind in 2009, 2007 im Desaster des Lügners und Betrügers Lulzim Basha, und einem Profi Gangster Bujar Nishani, der mit Vorsatz die Polizei zerstört, wie Flamur Noka, für eine Klientel Politik. wikileaks in 2009: Alles bekannt, man wurstelt weiter.

However, Post remains concerned about the Director of Intelligence, Agron Kulicaj, who was not moved in the shakeup. Sources claim Kulicaj is corrupt and international donors refuse to assist the Albanian Police due in part to his presence. The Ambassador has expressed our concern over corruption in the senior ranks of the State Police in general to Minister of Interior Basha, and Post’s ICITAP has expressed our specific concerns about Kulicaj to Burgaj. Burgaj has noted that Kulicaj is closely connected to Prime Minister Berisha, and any attempt to dismiss or reassign him must come from the PM’s office. End Summary.

Die Amerikanischen ICITAP – Polizei Ausbilder revoltierten, weil man Bewerbern aus Kukes vorab die Prüfungs Ergebnisse gab, willkürliche Verlängerung der Prüfungs Zeiten, weil die Bewerber, keine Kompetenz hatten und nur gekaufte Schulzeugnisse, aber von Flamur Noka unterstützt wurden. Wer dann im zweiten Nachprüf Termin durchgefallen war, erhielt gegen die Regeln nochmal eine Change, bis halt kein Amerikaner mehr da war, wurde nachgeprüft.

Jaresko’s arrival in Kiev was shortly followed by that of former Reno, Nevada assistant police chief Ron Glensor, who became an official adviser to the Ukrainian police with an initial posting at the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Khmelnytsky region. Glensor has been very active with the U.S. Department of Justice’s International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP). Glensor is also a former fellow of the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) in Washington, D.C. In August 1999, The Progressive magazine reported that «Janice Stromsen, a career employee of the Justice Department who served as ICITAP’s director, resisted the program’s takeover by CIA elements. In February [1999], Stromsen was relieved of her duties after complaining to the Justice Department Inspector General that ICITAP was being used by the CIA to recruit agents among foreign police officials».

Mostly outsourced to a favorite CIA contractor, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), ICITAP provided cover for the CIA to infiltrate police agencies around the world. After initiially blowing the whistle on ICITAP’s intelligence-related operations, Stromsen was joined by another ICITAP employee, Martin «Mick» Andersen, who charged that agencies other than the Justice Department were engaging in «illegal activities» in Haiti. Charles Allen, who worked for the Richardson, Texas police department and was assigned to ICITAP in 1995, said that the CIA would approach foreign police students enrolled in ICITAP training programs during off hours and weekends in an attempt to recruit them to be American spies. Other CIA recruitment of foreign police officers occurred during ICITAP training sessions at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.

ICITAP first began providing the CIA with «official cover» to infiltrate foreign police agencies in 1990 when it began its first operations in Panama after the U.S. military invasion. These operations were then expanded to Rwanda, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Georgia, the Eastern Slavonia province of Croatia, Serbia, Armenia, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Macedonia, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Albania, Liberia, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Thailand, South Africa, and Iraq. ICITAP and CIA operations were closely linked in counter-narcotics/insurgency operations in Bolivia, Costa Rica, Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize, Haiti, and Panama.

ICITAP grew out of a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) program started in the early 1960s that saw U.S. police officers assigned to foreign police agencies for the purpose of training. However, it soon became obvious that the CIA

Albania sacks chief of general staff

17/06/2008

TIRANA, Albania — The chief of the general staff, Lieutenant General Luan Hoxha, was fired on Monday (June 16th) over the series of deadly ammunition blasts in Gerdec in mid-March. He refused to talk to the media about the Gerdec case Monday, but thanked the armed forces for their work, highlighted by Albania’s invitation to join NATO in April.

Also Monday, parliament voted overwhelmingly to lift former Defence Minister Fatmir Mediu’s immunity. He left his cabinet post soon after the Gerdec explosions, which killed 26 and injured more than 300. Mediu is accused of abuse of power. „As defence minister, I respected the law [and] considered disposing of excess ammunition a national priority,“ he said during the parliamentary session.

In other news Monday, parliament rejected four of five nominees to the High Court of Justice. President Bamir Topi had nominated all five. It marked the first time the ruling Democratic Party (DP) opposed the wishes of DP member Topi. The coalition had warned him it would be scrutinising presidential decrees on High Court nominees.

After Munitions Explosion, Albanians Ask Why Danger Was Placed So Near
By NICHOLAS KULISH
GERDEC, Albania — Accidents happen. But when a factory has inexperienced villagers prying apart thousands of artillery shells a day with metal rods and their bare hands, it is hard to call the deadly catastrophe that follows simply an accident.The explosion of a plant in Albania last month carved out three yawning craters, the deepest over 100 feet, and killed 26 people. Witnesses likened it and the powerful shock wave that followed to the detonation of a nuclear bomb. “It felt like you were flying,” said Razije Telhai, 48, who said she had been thrown 60 feet by the force of the blast.

Was die deutsche Öffentlichkeit im Zusammenhang mit dem vom Parlament bewilligten Mandat über den Einsatz bis zu 850 deutscher Soldaten in der am 1.Januar 2015 begonnenen I.S.A.F.-Nachfolgemission “Resolute Support” dringend erfahren muss, sind die Lügen, die über die Notwendigkeit der Mission verbreitet werden.

*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.

By Dimitris Agrafiotis for Southeast European Times in Athens – 21/11/03

Organised crime in the Balkans has attracted the interest of the American law enforcement community and the US Senate. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) believes that crime from the Balkans, Eastern and Central Europe, and the former Soviet Union is expanding and will continue to expand.

„In the last year or two, European nations have recognised that Balkan organised crime is one of the greatest criminal threats that they face,“ Assistant Director of the FBI Criminal Investigative Division Grant D. Ashley said in an October statement before the Subcommittee on European Affairs of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

He added that European police organisations estimate that Balkan crime rings now control more than 70 per cent of the heroin market in some of the larger European nations, and are rapidly taking over human smuggling, prostitution and car theft rings across Europe.
………, Albanian organised crime has reached the United States, creating partnerships with the Gambino, Genovese, and Luchese families to facilitate specific crimes.……………….

  1. Ehemaliger stellvertretender Finanzministerder USA, sagt klar: Die USA Politik und Regierung ist vollkommen korrupt

    On the teetering economy and possible economic collapse, former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says, “We know something serious is wrong. The only provision of Dodd-Frank that has any teeth is the provision that says if the big banks are going to be casinos and gamble on derivatives, they cannot do that in the depository institution where depositors have their accounts. They have to farm it out into subsidiaries. So, if the subsidiaries get into trouble, the subsidiaries have no access to depositor’s money. This is the only real reform part of Dodd-Frank. Citigroup got put into the recent spending bill, the repeal of this, so banks can gamble on derivatives, and taxpayers and depositors are on the hook for the losses. Why would you do that unless you had a lot of derivatives trouble. It could easily be the oil derivatives. . . . The banks can gamble all they want and they are covered by the FDIC, which has no money. . . . This gives the banks access to depositor’s money. . . . This is sick, and it shows the United States government is the most corrupt government on earth, far more corrupt than Russia or China.”

    A US Navy official admitted on Tuesday to taking various bribes, including a prostitute and luxury travel, as well as sums reaching up to $120,000. He was involved in a massive scheme with a long-term Asian military contractor.

    Jose Luis Sanchez, 42, is the highest-ranking official to plead guilty in the case that has investigated the links between a Singapore-based company and US officers, who provided it with confidential information in exchange for luxury travel, prostitutes and other bribes, AP reported on Tuesday.

    His 24-page plea agreement lists bribes valued between $30,000 and $120,000 from 2009 to 2013, including a prostitute, $7,500 to travel from Asia to the United States and five days at Singapore’s luxury Shangri-La Hotel. The Navy official is facing a maximum penalty of 20 years behind bars.

    Sanchez admitted taking the money in exchange for classified Navy ship and submarine schedules and other internal information that he supplied to Leonard Glenn Francis, chief executive of Glenn Defense Marine, a company that managed port services for American ships in Southeast Asia.

    Sanchez, who served in Japan and Singapore before he was reassigned to Florida in 2013, remains on active duty in San Diego, according to the Justice Department statement. His sentencing is set for March 27.

    “Commander Sanchez sold out his command and country for cash bribes, luxury hotel rooms, and the services of prostitutes,” Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell said. “After today’s guilty plea, instead of free stays at the Shangri-La hotel, Sanchez is facing many nights in federal prison.”

    The first charges in the case, which involves four US Navy officers – Sanchez, Misiewicz, Beliveau and Wisidagama, – were filed in 2013.

    Francis, known as “Fat Leonard,” was arrested in September 2013 and has pleaded not guilty. His company has serviced Navy ships for 25 years, and since 2009 it has allegedly overbilled the US Navy by at least $20 million.

    “We continue to unearth the full scope of this pernicious fraud and bribery scheme, and we will pursue the evidence, wherever it leads us,” said US attorney for the Southern District of California, Laura Duffy.

    US military assistance contributes to Balkan armies‘ modernisation

    The US is assisting Balkan countries to equip their security forces, enabling them to better tackle security threats stemming from rising extremism and ensure regional stability, experts said.

    Last month, the US government provided Macedonia’s police with equipment and training worth nearly $1 million to increase its capacity and skills.

    The equipment includes night signalling instruments, shields, crowd control accessories, truncheons and obstacles for forced stopping of vehicles.

    „This donation is part of the wide and comprehensive co-operation in the spirit of strategic partnership between Macedonia and the US,“ Macedonia Defence Minister Zoran Jolevski said.

    Officials said the equipment will be also used by Macedonian security forces during their participation in peace operations with NATO, the EU and the UN.

  6. Korruptions Motor die Internationalen: Amerikaner und EU

    Selbstgerecht und oberlehrerhaft treten manche westliche Diplomaten auf, die Staatsaufbau in Krisengebieten betreiben. Die Einheimischen sollen im Eiltempo die Werte der freien Welt verinnerlichen, korrupte Politiker abwählen und Gesetze respektieren. Diese Ideale predigte auch Christopher Dell, nachdem er Mitte 2009 US-Botschafter in Kosovo geworden war. Er wies mit erhobenem Zeigefinger darauf hin, dass Bestechung und Machtmissbrauch in der Balkanrepublik endlich geahndet werden müssten.

    In der Praxis agierte Dell jedoch wie ein Kolonialgouverneur. Als der US-Konzern Bechtel sich für den Bau der Autobahn bewarb, die Kosovo heute mit Albanien verbindet, lobbyierte der Botschafter ohne Rücksicht auf Gesetze und diplomatische Gepflogenheiten für das amerikanische Unternehmen. Trotz Warnungen von EU-Diplomaten fädelte Dell den Deal – zusammen mit Regierungschef Hashim Thaci – hinter den Kulissen ein. Der Bau der Schnellstrasse werde «etwa 700 Millionen Euro» kosten, hiess es.

We ask these questions to a former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson,

    f The Police Assistance Mission of the European Community to Albania has drawn a detailed report sinking the Ministry of the Interiors and the State Police while belying all the propaganda of the power on the alleged success of the police in the fight against crime and trafficking.

    SOT newspaper is in possession of a copy of the full PAMECA report of more than 100 pages which analyses the failures and successes of the police. Differently from the utopian depiction of the old propaganda of the Ministry of the Interiors, the mission states eleven reasons why the Albanian police has failed.

    1. The lack of a data processing directorate to lead and control and take responsibility for the collection and control of intelligence;
    2. Lack of computers for all state police officers connected with Memex system;
    3. Lack of standard operational procedures to control police information;
    4. Lack of a logistic server based on geographic division;
    5. Insufficient knowledge on scientific evidence.
    6. Lack of consuming articles for the Directorate of the Scientific Police;
    7. Insufficient capacities for DNA tests;
    8. Unfair division of tasks among specialists (some bear the brunt);
    9. The failure of the police can be also attributed to the lack of willingness from the chiefs to ensure a consistent and increasing intelligence supply from the police officers as well as the inquiring structure experts.
    10. Lack of civil recruits knowledgeable in certain fields of science and technology;
    11. -The State Police can be intruded by the power in decision making processes.

    Risks:
    1-Budget caps hamper the efficient enlargement of Memex system
    2-Lack of funds to acquire the computer program for analysis specialists in districts
    3-Lack of coherent procedures in compliance with the European Convention for Human Rights to control and use intelligence and Secret Human Resources of Information
    4-Fund shortage in the Scientific police Department

    Albania for $ale: With a Little Help from Her ‚Friends‘

    (Giving someone the benefit of the doubt simply means to let Albania be New
    World’s guinea pig)

    by Gary Q. Kokalari

    Last February, virtually lost in the media attention over the Kosova crisis, a ceremony was held at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, DC. Commerce Secretary William Daley looked on while then Albanian Prime Minister
    Pandeli Majko and Dr. Chirinjeev Kathuria, the president of a Chicago-based company known as New World Telecom, signed an agreement to establish a joint venture between New World and Albtelecom, Albania’s state-owned telecommunications firm. The objective of this deal was to establish an exclusive joint venture for the development of a $300 million wireless
    telecommunication system in the Republic of Albania.
    The press releases were quite impressive – „U.S. telecom company to invest $300 million dollars in Albania.“ My first reaction was, „who is New World Telecom?“ But at that time, like most Albanians, I was preoccupied with the
    Kosova conflict, so New World faded from my radar screen.
    Fortunately, the Serb genocide machine was driven from Kosova, and at least here in the United States life returned to some semblance of normality. In August, after again reading on the news wires about New World Telecom in
    Albania, I decided to revisit this situation to find out who New World Telecom is and what this company is up to in Albania.
    So, I started to conduct research through normal channels – Wall Street research resources, news archives, Dun & Bradstreet, etc. What I found is that virtually no information about New World exists in the public domain.
    This seemed somewhat peculiar since this was a company that claims to have developed telecommunication systems around the world and has represented that it plans to invest $300 million in the development of a telecommunication
    system in Albania.
    After I had commenced my investigation, I discovered that several other Albanians were also questioning New World’s activities in Albania. One was Ismet Hamiti, an Albanian from Kosova who has thirty years of experience as a telecommunications professional. Mr. Hamiti is based in Thailand where he is the regional representative for the International Telecom Union. For twelve years he was head of the development and design department of Kosova PTT, and he is presently advising Kosova PTT in its efforts to rebuild the telephone system in Kosova. The other individual is Agron Alibali, an attorney from Albania who is now based in Boston. Together, we assembled what to us seemed a very disturbing picture about New World Telecom.
    Because this deal was being driven by the Commerce Department, which was the most aggressive promoter of New World Telecom, I contacted Commerce Department officials to discuss this matter. With the lobbying assistance of the State Department and the American Embassy in Tirana, I learned that the Commerce Department exerted enormous pressure on the Albanian government to
    select New World Telecom as a partner for Albtelecom. With this support, New World pre-empted several major, highly qualified, well known international telecom companies that were keenly interested in developing business in
    Albania.
    Upon discussing this matter with officials at the Commerce and State Departments, it appeared to me that the U.S. government had not completed an adequate level of due diligence to determine the capabilities of New World Telecom. Nor could the Commerce Department provide me with any information to substantiate New World’s ability to complete a project of the magnitude of the one proposed for Albania.
    The Commerce Department suggested that I speak with Dr. Kathuria to learn more about New World Telecom. I called Dr. Kathuria several times at what I was led to believe was New World’s headquarters using the telephone number listed on their web site. Each time I called either Dr. Kathuria answered the telephone or I reached a voice mail. Perhaps it means nothing, but I found it odd that the president of what is purported to be a international telecommunications company would be answering the phone on the company’s main number.
    Despite repeated requests, Dr. Kathuria has not provided me with any information to convince me that New World has the technical or financial ability to complete the proposed project. In quite grandiose terms he has described projects New World telecom is „working on“, and projects that his „partners“ have completed, but he has not been able to point to a single
    project anywhere that was successfully completed by New World that is comparable to the $300 million project he has proposed for Albania.
    In addition to contacting Dr. Kathuria, I wrote to President Rexhep Meidani, Secretary Daley and the State Department asking all of them to substantiate New World’s track record. As of the time of this writing, they have not provided the information that would indicate that New World has either the technical capability or the financial resources to develop a $300 million
    telecom system. It appears that through associating New World with major companies, ones with which relationships may or may not exist, Dr. Kathuria has developed a level of credibility that has enabled him to have the U.S. and Albanian governments do his bidding.
    I have requested investigations of this matter by Senator McCain’s and Senator Helm’s offices as they have oversight responsibility for the Commerce and State Departments, respectively. As a result, Senator Helm’s office
    forwarded information to me about New World Telecom. These documents, which consisted primarily of self-serving press releases, had been submitted to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by the Commerce Department because of my
    inquiry. After reviewing this material I wrote to Secretary Daley as follows:

    „In my opinion, there was one thing missing from this promotional material ñ evidence that New World Telecom has ever successfully completed the turn-key development of a telecommunication project anywhere in the world. If my
    interpretation is correct, then it appears that the Commerce Department, knowingly or unknowingly, influenced the government of Albania to entrust the development of its telecommunication system to, in the best case, a fledgling company.

    Mr. Secretary, I ask you, if you should decide to build a new home, will you hire a contractor who has never built a single house? Should the government of Albania be expected to entrust the development of a $300 million telecommunication system, a crucial link to the forward progress of the country’s economy, to a company that has never done this before?“

    Not surprisingly, Secretary Daley has not responded. This is the same William Daley who is a member of the Daley family political machine of Chicago which, by coincidence, is also the home of New World Telecom.
    Yet, the Commerce Department and State Department are now placing enormous pressure on the Albanian government to grant New World Telecom a license to develop one of Albania’s most strategic economic sectors. Quite frankly, something smells rotten in Tirana – and Washington.
    In September, Dr. Kathuria, U.S. Ambassador Limprecht and a Motorola „representative“, presided over a press conference in Tirana for the signing of a „letter of intent“ for Motorola to supply $50 million in telecom
    equipment for the Albanian government. One should not become overly impressed with this event because letters of intent are typically not worth the paper on which they are written, and it was obvious that the ceremony was staged for its public relations value rather than to commemorate a legally binding commitment on the part of Motorola.

    So I continued to press the Albanian and American government officials to provide me with rationale for promoting New World in Albania. To no avail, I requested a meeting with representatives of the Commerce and State Departments and New World Telecom to discuss this matter. I also requested meetings with President Meidani and Prime Minister Majko during their recent
    visits to the United States to discuss New World Telecom, but they were too busy. …But I can appreciate their reticence to see me – it’s quite obvious they didn’t want to hear what I had to say.
    After repeatedly badgering the State Department to justify their support of New World Telecom, in October I received this e-mail message from a State
    Department official:
    …………………….
    „The World Bank has followed the Albanian government’s plans for privatizing state owned enterprises in telecommunications with interest. We have conveyed our views to the government on various occasions over the last couple of years that both privatization and the issuing of licenses should be done on a competitive basis. Our experience from other transition economies shows clearly that only transparent and competitive procedures guarantee efficiency in the process and participation by reputable strategic investors with adequate experience. Such outcomes invariably encourage private sector
    activity and economic growth in the country concerned.
    Recently, we had discussions with the Albanian delegation to the World Bank’s annual meetings and have reiterated the above views at the highest level, including Prime Minister Pandeli Majko.“

    The statements from the World Bank raise several questions to which the State and Commerce Departments should respond. Was the selection of New World a transparent and competitive procedure? Should we view a company with no track record in developing a comparable telecom facility as a reputable strategic investor with adequate experience? I believe the answer to these
    questions is „no.“ But one thing is clear, the World Bank has far more experience in the development of telecom systems in „transition economies“ than the State and Commerce Departments combined.

    In my opinion, the process by which New World Telecom has gained a foothold in Albania appears to be little more than a highly sophisticated, intricately spun web of deception with the Commerce and State Departments serving as
    either accomplices or dupes.
    During my investigation of the New World Telecom deal, I discovered that two other companies are engaged in business development in Albania. Crys-Tel Telecommunications Inc. claims to have acquired media assets in Albania and also claims to be developing telecommunications related businesses there as
    well. The Albanian government has also announced that it has granted concessions to Metals Research Group to develop Albania’s copper resources.
    Supposedly, Metals Research will invest $75 million to develop these resources. As it turns out, Crys-Tel and Metals Research Group have several things in common.
    First, they are both traded on the Pinks Sheets. For those who are unfamiliar with the stock market, many companies that trade on the Pink Sheets have
    either been de-listed from major stock exchanges or are too thinly capitalized to trade on a major exchange. Although there are legitimate companies that trade in this manner, the Pink Sheets have been known to be the stalking grounds of many a stock manipulator. Interestingly, X-Stream Networks, an affiliate of New World Telecom, is also traded on the Pink
    Sheets.
    After completing additional research, I learned that Anthony Papalia Jr. is Vice President of Crys-Tel and that Robert Papalia is President of Metals Research Group. Robert Papalia is also listed as CEO and Anthony Papalia Sr., the father of Anthony Jr., is listed as President of yet another Pink Sheet listed company known as PAC Rim Information Systems.
    Upon further investigation I learned that Anthony Papalia Sr. and Robert Papalia are Italian born twin brothers who are well known to police in Vancouver, Montreal and London.
