Spiegel: Spider's net of the Albanian Mafia in Germany
August 08, 1999

Bonn, 8 August, 1999 - During the NATO aggression on Yugoslavia, the West
received the distorted image on the Albanians. This image has its other
side,
stresses the Hamburg weekly Spiegel in its analytic article on the spider's

net which the Albanian Mafia has developed not only in Germany, but
throughout the whole Europe.

"Ethnic Albanians" (as the German police officially calls them), no matter
where they come from - Albania, Macedonia or Kosovo - created for a very
short time in the last decade of the century, a very powerful criminal
network, says Manfred Quedzuweit, director of the Police Department for
Fighting the Organized Crime in Hamburg. Here, it could be heard that they
are even more dangerous than Cosa Nostra.

The network is spreading from the Balkans over the eastern Europe, becomes
very dense in Greece and Italy, more dense in Switzerland and Germany, and
stretches even to Scandinavia. Some branches of this criminal Albanian
network even reach Spain, Portugal and the Great Britain, and even more -
the
United States.

It has never happened in the history that such a small ethnic group shows
so
much criminal energy in such a short time, the Spiegel comments.

In the last couple of years, the Albanians literally invaded the West as
they
found the best place for their illegal business there. In the Great
Britain,
for example, there were only 30 Albanians living there ten years ago. Now,
there are over 30,000 Albanians living in Britain, a thousand times more!
There are about 400,000 Albanians in Germany, 200,000 in Switzerland,
100,000
in Italy
and even 25,000 in small Belgium.

Tribal, patriarchal establishment among the Albanians is one of the most
important factors of successful creating the network of the criminal clans.

Everybody knows everybody, everyone is controlled where he goes and what he

does. Nobody can escape the long hand of Mafia, says Manfred Quedzuweit.

The members of the family form the core of a clan (in this case about 60
members of the Albanian family), writes the Spiegel. The average of another

150 relatives are tied to them, as well as their neighbours and friends,
sometimes a whole village is a clan. Such a system is ideal for introducing

into an organized criminal network, writes the Hamburg weekly.

The ethnologist of the University in Berlin Stephanie Schwandner-Sievers
says
those are the relics of an archaic tribal society, which she and her
colleagues call "immoral familiarity".

In Germany, the Albanians have completely took over the market of heroin as

they banished, in a spectacular fight five years ago, the Turks and Kurds.
For a short time, says Manfred Quedzuweit, they covered the market of
prostitution where they launch young Albanian girls of 16 and 17 years.

"Washing" of illegal money, armed robberies and stealing of jewelry and
money
from private houses, and organized transportation of white slaves and
desperate ones who seek their chance for life in the West, is only a part
in
their long list of illegal businesses in Germany.

Albanian "banks" in Germany are a special story. They are used for the
transfer of money from Germany which amounts to a billion of D-marks a
year.
One of these banks was discovered by accident by the Dusseldorf police when

they were checking a travel agency "Eulinda" owned by the Albanians.  We
haven't found a single catalogue or brochure for travelling at the agency,
computers were not
operating, nor the printer has been ever used. We found that "Eulinda" was
a
coverup for some other business, said high criminal counselor from
Dusseldorf
Rainer Bruckert.  Eventually we found out that "Eulinda" had already
transferred 150 million dollars to Kosovo - for "humanitarian purposes",
says
Bruckert. Money has been transferred by the
couriers in special waist belts with many pockets. So, in a single one way
trip, they can carry up to six million D-marks. We have proofs, says
Bruckert, that the money has been transferred under the cover of political
parties and humanitarian aid and through fictitious companies, to Kosovo
for
the purpose of financing the war which KLA is conducting there.

Police has lots of difficulties to catch any of those criminals and put
them
in jail, mostly because people are scared too much to testify, fearing for
their own lives and the lives of their families, says Manfred Quedzuweit,
who
asserts that this fear is without any ground since police has many ways to
protect the witnesses.  Even the suspects do not feel like talking. The
chances to find out anything at the hearing are equal to zero, says Josef
Geissdoerfer, director of the Department for Fighting Crime in Munich,
adding
that brutality in violence and silence is the main power of the Albanian
Mafia.
