Albanian Organized Crime in UK and Mainstream Media

The anti Serbian hysteria, ignorance, corrupted officials, media and  public is something the British have to take consequences for.  The consequences are: blooming criminal,  narco business, robberies, theft, prostitution, kidnappings, radicalism, terrorism and other criminal officially supported (and) by Great Britain activities. But only while on Serbian soil. The Serbs were not allowed to defend their state form the criminals; there were NATO bombs to support Neonazi regime(s) in Croatia, radical Islamists in Bosnia and Islamofascists Albanian quasi state Kosovo, built on drug trade, prostitution and Serbian harvested organs.

Since Albanians were not happy with ‘Kosovo’ state anymore, and after they destroyed all what Serbia and Yugoslavia have been building and finansing during more than half a century, they decided to go to their confirmed friends and patrons, whose personification became former UK PM Tony Blair, whose name became extremely popular among young Albanian parents: Tony Blair (or Tonibler, Albanian ‘version’).

So they went to UK.

After arriving to UK, they continued  with the same type of ‘business’ they developed in ‘Kosovo’ and Albania.  Means, they behave the same way they did in Serbia and Yugoslavia (Except didn’t ask for independence, but, hey, since they flee ‘Kosovo’ en masse, it’s only a question of time).

But what happens now?

Manchester Evening News reports:

Police investigating suspected Albanian drug gang raid 17 homes across Greater Manchester  – 

Police investigating a gang of Albanians suspected of cocaine dealing have raided 17 homes across Greater Manchester this morning.

They executed search warrants at addresses in Manchester, Salford and Traffordbefore dawn.

It is believed a number of arrests have been made.

The investigation centres on a group of mostly Albanian nationals suspected of trafficking cocaine into the north west.

Officers from Greater Manchester Police carried out the raids along with immigration officials from the Home Office, etc.

This is a few days old express.co.uk report concerning organized crime. And looks who’s there again – the Albanians.

“Gang of Albanians held on suspicion of cocaine smuggling and trafficking after drugs raid – A GANG of 21 Albanians were in custody last night on suspicion of cocaine smuggling and human trafficking.”

The last paragraph is significant: “This week it was revealed that taxpayers are footing a £110million bill to house a record number of eastern European criminals in our jails.”

Albanian nation is impossible to separate from crime. Another article about Albanian contribution to UK society (almost)  hits the nail:

“But it is Albanian gangs – known as the Mafia Shqiptare – that are causing particular concern. The gangs are said to have been brutalised by the conflicts in the Balkans in the 1990s and sit on worldwide trade routes for guns, drugs and women. The Mafia Shqiptare are believed to have taken over the sex trade in London’s Soho district and even reduced the power of the feared Italian Mafia in their own areas”.

Stephen Whitelock, a Detective Chief Superintendent with the SCDEA, said: “We are noting the emergence of a number of crime groups from other countries operating in Scotland. “The Albanians are here now. Some of the individuals concerned are known to be capable of extreme violence.”

“Albanian serious and organised crime groups have been know to be involved in prostitution, arms and drugs. They have been flagged up in our mapping exercise.”

He added: “We have a list of the top 20% most serious organised crime groups and, each of which is in the ownership of one of the forces or the agency. The Albanians are on that list.”

It is thought Albanian crime families arrived in the UK in the aftermath of the 1999 Kosovo war. The families are relatively small but strongly bonded by a code of honour and blood feuds.

 

Police raid in UK against Albanian narco mafia

As long ago as 2003, Luan Plakici, an Albanian from Montenegro, was jailed in Scotland for 10 years for trafficking women from Moldova.

Former SCDEA boss Graeme Pearson, now a Labour MSP, said: “The Albanians are a bit of a challenge because they have a military background in their homelands and their criminal elements have a very violent history. They are very difficult groups to penetrate.”

(source:  http://www.deadlinenews.co.uk/2012/01/15/albanian-crime-gangs-top-list-of-most-feared-foreign-gangsters/)

Not to mention the last year’s  case when the Albanian gang members  set up a cocaine hotline for drug addicts, what brought them  more than £4million profit from 100,000 calls in just one year (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2564848/Pictured-Albanian-drug-gang-ran-call-centre-sell-4million-worth-cocaine-YEAR-clients-received-staggering-100-000-calls.html).

Or last November case, when Albanian drugs gang attempted to flood London and the south of England with £40m of cocaine and heroin.  After the arrest, they have been jailed for a total of 157 years. And UK pays for it (http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/gangland-london-40m-heroin-cocaine-bust-lands-albanian-gang-157-years-prison-1475662).

One of the greatest Albanian achievements and contribution to UK society certainly occurred in 2006. It has been  known as the world’s largest-ever cash robbery, with £53m stolen from a Securitas cash depot in Tonbridge, Kent, by a gang dressed in latex masks and police uniforms. The inside man for this robbery was Ermir Hysenaj, an Albanian who entered the UK as a teenager in 1999, claiming to be a ‘Kosovan’ refugee. He moved to Hastings and remained in touch with a childhood friend from Albania, Jetmir Bucpapa, a wide boy who had paid money to a smuggler to take him across the Adriatic sea in a speedboat and had made his way across western Europe, also posing as a Kosovan refugee.

As Howard Sounes recounts in his book on the case,  Bucpapa met a small-time local villain, Lea Rusha, who in turn introduced him to the man regarded as the robbery’s ringleader, Lee Murray, a cage-fighter. The plot was hatched. Hysenaj signed up with a recruitment firm that had the contract to supply staff to Securitas’s nearby depot. He was interviewed for a job as cash administrator and, six days later, having passed the security checks with false name and birth-date, became the inside man.

Confident that no one could understand him, Hysenaj spoke in Albanian on his mobile phone to Bucpapa, passing on details of the depot’s security weaknesses. But the robbery was a sloppy one. Hysenaj, no longer working in the depot but easily traced, was picked up soon by Kent police. His mobile phones linked him to Bucpapa. At the end of an Old Bailey trial in 2008, both were jailed along with the other robbers.

(This is the most significant part: “The involvement of two eastern Europeans alongside British villains was seen as significant by police and criminals alike, in that such a spectacular crime would normally have only been undertaken by a homogenous crew.” Wait a second, Eastern Europeans would have been ok, if their exact nationality was unknown. Seems like Brithish media prefers to accuse all east Europeans than an Albanian gang?).

And more of Albanian activities:

“In the same year, there was a fatal shooting in an Albanian/Kosovan social club in Acton, west London. A gunman had opened fire, killing one man and wounding two others. The reason for the shooting? A turf war over which Albanian gang was entitled to steal from the parking meters of Westminster. Using skeleton keys, small teams of Albanian-speaking Kosovans, Montenegrans and Albanians had been supping heartily from one of Westminster council’s most reliable revenue streams.”

To the police, it was a puzzle. Robbing parking meters was not one of organised crime’s portfolios. Who would put so much effort into something so painstaking – all those sacks of coins – that yielded such relatively small sums? But to those involved, a share of the £1,243,000 that was stolen in one year alone in Westminster was worth the bother, not least because no home-grown criminals seemed interested in the franchise – and because coins, unlike banknotes, are untraceable. So if someone tried to trespass on this territory, they had to be chased off. The gunman, Herland Bilali, fled to Denmark, was tracked down, extradited and is now serving a life sentence with a 34-year tariff; a co-defendant, Timi Spahiu, protests his innocence. Another Albanian parking-meter turf war murder in Golders Green in 2008 remains unsolved.

A couple of years earlier, Luan Plakici, an Albanian “immigration expert”, as he described himself without irony, was jailed for 23 years. He had smuggled around 50 Eastern European women, mainly from Moldova and Romania, into Britain for prostitution. He entered the country as an asylum seeker in 1999 and worked for law firms as an interpreter. His trial at Wood Green crown court was a rarity. Usually, the witnesses are too frightened of what might happen to their relatives at home to appear. This time, some brave young women gave evidence against him.

Albanian drug gangsters from UK

And of course, there are always corrupted journalists to ‘clean’ the immage of Albanians (and fool the UK public): Thus Muhamed Veliu, an Albanian ‘investigative journalist’, states that (quote):

“Only a small minority are involved in organised crime but the tabloids have created a stereotype of Albanians as the new gangsters. In the past 12 years in Britain, I have read only one positive story about an Albanian – a barrister, in Time Out – but there are Albanian doctors in the NHS, Albanian LSE lecturers, Albanians in the restaurant business. The success stories are never reported.”

But the good man Veliu couldn’t hide what he was actually proud of:

“However, he added, the Securitas robbery was regarded with some national pride in Albania: “It was ‘the crime of the century’, it was seen as very different from making money from prostitution, which is the lowest form of crime. It is wrong, of course, but they did need bravery to get involved and at least they went for a bank, that was the feeling in the Albanian community. The British media are now trying to stereotype the whole Albanian community.”

So it’s British media who’s stereotyping the whole (actually innocent, honest ) Albanian nation. As seen in Kosovo ’90 -ies: Albanians are victims! Again. 

The UK media was easy to convict, so this report doesn’t end speaking about ‘Eastern European’ gangs. Instead media pushes Albanian crime behind crime as global phenomena, ”that can be found everywhere” (!?).

This is now The Guardian ( Guarding the Albanian criminals?)  report ended:

“Crime has always been an import-export affair and in many ways mirrors “legitimate” business. As old family firms in Britain have been replaced by multinationals so, too, have the family-based gangs in Britain (the Krays, Richardsons, Arifs, Adams) been overtaken by multinationals, where different nationalities co-operate in the pursuit of higher profits. This is a two-way street. Many British criminals have moved abroad, most famously establishing themselves on the Costa del Crime. Many still operate there, making money from everything from bent time-share deals to drugs smuggled in from Morocco; more than 2,000 Britons had their collars felt in Spain last year alone. British criminals also made themselves at home everywhere from Thailand to Florida. The police may well be right when they say that the Games will attract villains from the east but, if there was to be an Olympics for crime, homegrown Britons would still be going for gold” (quote from: http://www.theguardian.com/uk/2012/jun/25/eastern-european-immigration-crime-britain).

Europe’s “Little Guantanamo”: Why the U.S. Wants Serbia to Give Up Kosovo
The U.S. military base in Kosovo was constructed in 1999 without consulting with the government of Serbia and is the largest U.S. military base built outside of the U.S. since the Vietnam War.

Russophobia – Symptom of US Implosion
There was a time when Russophobia served as an effective form of population control – used by the American ruling class in particular to command the general US population into patriotic loyalty. Not any longer. Now, Russophobia is a sign of weakness, of desperate implosion among the US ruling class from their own rotten, internal decay. This propaganda technique worked adequately well during the Cold War decades when the former Soviet Union could be easily demonized as «godless communism» and an «evil empire». Such stereotypes, no matter how false, could be sustained largely because of the monopoly control of Western media ...

Did U.S. and Allies Commit War Crime by Bombing Syria on April 14th?
INTRODUCTION Bombardment (or other military invasion) of a country that has not invaded nor threatened to invade the attacking country(s) is “aggression” under international law, and is the chief crime that the Nazis were hanged for at Nuremberg after World War II. The U.S. and its allies have routinely committed aggression, in places such as Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen. A particular instance of it, to be discussed here, could be especially prosecutable, because the alleged ‘cause’ for the invasion could turn out to have been a provable lie, an intentional fabrication which had been concocted by the perpetrators so as to ...
