Kosovo’s Prime Minister Hashim Thaci is facing a wide range of criminal allegations, including owning a harem with 52 female sex slaves, drug trafficking and the sale of human organs. The Prime Minister has been accused of criminal activity in several major European news sources; among them are Berlin-based daily Der Tagesspiegel, The Guardian, and MINA.
MINA (Macedonian International News Agency) is the source of today’s article about the suspected crimes of the controversial leader of Kosovo. According to the news agency, a Ukrainian woman escaped from Thaci’s harem and revealed damning information about sex slavery in Kosovo. The woman claims 52 female sex slaves are forced to work night and day to service the Prime Minister and his rich friends in business and government.
“None of the girls were from Kosovo, there were few from the Balkans, about ten from Russia, one from Cameroon, two Chinese women etc. Most of the people who arrive here are older, very few are younger. Many of them are foreign diplomats, including officers from EULEX and KFOR. The girls are not allowed to say “No.” One of the girls called Dolores from Colombia protested the conditions during our lunch time in the cafeteria. She was shot dead by Thaci’s bodyguards.”
The woman, who is remains anonymous for her protection, said Prime Minister Thaci only entered the harem when he was drugged or intoxicated. The woman also stated the sex slaves were kept under constant guard by five armed men and she was eventually able to bribe one of the guards to let her go by giving him money and sexual favors.
The accusations against Thaci have been under investigation for several years, dating back to his days as the head of the Kosovo Liberation Army. The Washington Times accused Thaci of financing his militia through the sale of heroin and cocaine in Western Europe.
A leaked confidential report from the German BND security agency in 2008 made several serious allegations against the Prime Minister.
“The key players (including Haliti, Haradinaj, and Thaçi) are intimately involved in inter-linkages between politics, business, and organised crime structures in Kosovo. The BND report also accuses Thaci of contacts to the Czech and Albanian mafias. In addition, it accuses him, together with Haliti, of ordering killings through the professional hit man ‘Afrimi’, who is allegedly responsible for at least 11 contract murders.”
The leader of Kosovo’s self-determination movement, Florin Krasniqi, believes that anyone who examines Thaci’s luxurious lifestyle will realize he couldn’t maintain it on the salary of a government minister.
“Thaci comes to Kosovo assembly sessions wearing Hermes ties that cost EUR 300 to 500. Only a criminal or a billionaire businessman can afford such ties. I think that Thaci belongs to the first category and the whole world knows that he is a plan criminal.”
Serbia also condemned Thaci and questioned if he is suitable to be Kosovo’s leader. Serbia’s foreign minister, Vuk Jeremic, called the reports “a signal for the civilized world community to stop turning their backs to the terrible situation in Kosovo; this report shows what Kosovo is and who is leading it.”
These are serious allegations that have been unresolved for almost 5 years. It is certainly time for the UN Human Rights Commission to do something besides constantly condemning Israel for defending itself against terrorist rockets, and conduct an honest investigation of Prime Minister Thaci and his associates in Kosovo.
