TIRANA, Albania: The Albanian government said Friday that it has seized assets of a man who allegedly worked with Osama bin Laden to provide support to terror networks in Albania.
The Finance Ministry said it ordered authorities to block four apartments, a house, four bars and shops, and more than 2 hectares (about 5 acres) of land belonging to Yasin al-Qadi, a Saudi businessman whom the United States accused of being a terrorist in October 2001 and who is on a U.N. sanctions list requiring all U.N. members to impose a travel ban on him and block his assets, according to Official Gazette.

Osama's associated had something going in Albania for quite awhile.
Yup. Most of the prime real estate in the capital was financed by Bin Laden's associates.
The EIJ were invited into Albania , and in return , investments , etc were made .
Selling your soul to the devil . All for a couple of concrete high rises .
( From the link )
"Some of the Albania's terror-led growth: A pair of buildings called the Twin Towers in Tirana, Albania, are owned by Yasin Al-Qadi, a Saudi businessman, who laundered money for Osama bin Laden through extensive business dealings in Albania."
But don't worry , cos the guy who let the EIJ into Albania was voted back into office recently .
Nothing to see , move on now .
"Albania...Albania...it borders on the Adriatic!"
From the original article , all it says is "a house, four bars and shops, and more than 2 hectares (about 5 acres) of land belonging to Yasin al-Qadi"
It's the same YASIN AL QADI that owns the centre of Tirana from the article I posted , so his holdings are obviously WAY more than a boozer and a couple of mud huts hinted at in the original article .
I think you could be right
