“Black” transplantology in Kosovo: international investigation needed
Serbia’s proposal for the establishment of an independent investigative body with a mandate of the UN Security Council is expected to be considered in New York in the middle of May. The new body will tackle the cases of human organ trafficking in Kosovo. The Serbian side came up with this proposal after consultations between Serbia’s Foreign Minister Vuk Yeremic and Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. During his visit to Belgrade on April 19th he said that regarding this issue, Moscow would offer Serbia its support.
Despite the loud words – just although – of the international community to the effect that criminals have no nationality, it is very hard to deny the fact of the 10-year-long “demonization” of the Serbs by Western media. What appeared as a result was Dick Marti’s report about the “black” transplantology in Kosovo and about the involvement of the current Kosovo ruling clique in this dirty business, which came as a bombshell.
In an exclusive interview for the Voice of Russia correspondents, who visited Serbia during their business trip, Serbian Deputy Prosecutor Bruno Vekaric answered a few questions concerning this subject.
“What is meant here are several people having information about human organ trafficking in Europe of today. That is why if we start divulging the details just now, this may hamper the on-going developments in the investigation. However, there’s still one thing we should stress here – that many people tried to give a political colour to this matter while we are sure that this is a classical example of a criminal business.”
The Belgrade politologists fear that after the shocking information concerning the human organ trafficking in Kosovo came to the surface, the members of the world community will do their utmost so that the investigations dedicated to all these facts will remain deeply hidden.
“Let’s proceed from the analysis of the current state of affairs in Kosovo. The so –called “grey zone” accounts for approximately 60 per cent of business there. And we start believing that trafficking in human organs is a profiting type of business, in which some people in Kosovo were engaged earlier and that there’re people who remain engaged in it now too. Such crimes were committed during the conflict with NATO, and the majority of people disappeared exactly at that period of time – according to our information, 300 to 500 people are listed missing, who – again according to our information, disappeared in the north of Albania.”
So why do the Albanian prosecutors refuse to take part in the investigation?
“For political reasons, I believe”, Bruno Vekaric says, adding the following: “We have an agreement on cooperation with the Albanian prosecutors, which was signed back in 2005, and we would like to conduct a joint investigation on its basis. Had such an investigation been carried out at that time, there’s reason to believe that Marti’s report would have never appeared. We have proved that that there were camps of the Kosovo Liberation Army in the north of Albania and that there were special medical centres in the four of them, where surgical operations, possibly, were performed. Western channels showed witnesses in this case. And after all, Dick Marti’s report does exist. Therefore, we should not turn a blind eye to that. The Albanian side refuses to cooperate in this issue. Albania even did not allow Dick Marti to check some facts on its territory.
And as regards Kosovo and Metohija, it is in the interests of the Albanian leader Hashim Tachi that the investigation should be completed since he says that he was not involved. Because otherwise, he will remain suspected in committing crimes unprecedented in their cruelty.
