Exposed: how Kosovo Serbs were butchered for organs
Russia Today ^ | April2, 2008 | Staff

Former Chief Prosecutor at the International Court of Justice in the Hague has given details of suspected atrocities by ethnic Albanians in Kosovo in 1999. Carla Del Ponte's book 'The Hunt: Me and War crimes' claims that before killing Serbs and members of other ethnic communities, Kosovo Albanians removed their organs to sell for transplants.

According to Del Ponte, a one-time prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, the kidnapped Serbs were given a medical test. Those who passed were treated well, fed and looked after until they were brought under the surgeon’s knife.

From several concentration camps in Kosovo, they were then transferred to cities in the north of Albania. Their body parts were later flown to Europe.

General Mamir Stayanovich was head of the intelligence service of the Serbian army during the war.

He has no doubt that the claims in Del Ponte’s book will sooner or later be proven. The places she mentions as hidden operation rooms are in exactly the same location as the camps Albanians used for training soldiers.

“In these hospitals they decided amongst themsemselves what each commander of the KLA would have after victory. They decided who would make his money from drug dealing, who from weapons, and who from selling body parts. Hashim Thaci, the prime minister, was among them,” General Stayanovich claims.

There are more than 2,000 names on the list of missing Serbs. Sima Spasich is the leader of an organisation trying to discover their fate. He showed the pictures of body parts he filmed in 2003.

“Right after the war, when we understood that too many people had disappeared, I went to the K-For commanders and asked them where were the people, and they just shrugged their shoulders. Only after they saw Serbian people demonstrating and were afraid of their anger, they took me to some place,” Spasich said.

“I cannot explain what I saw there. It was a small mountain of pieces of bodies and the first thing I saw was a baby who’d been taken from his mother’s stomach, lying there. It was impossible to look. It was a massive grave they’d dug before. Today I know in this massive grave were 26 Serb bodies - also there was my brother Milosh,” Spasich added.

Families who once had a small glimmer of hope of finding their loved ones are now planning to sue Del Ponte. They claim she withheld this information for years - and in that way helped the criminals with their crime.

And the organs were probably sold to China.

The organs could have been sold anywhere, including China. But apparently Turkey is a go-to spot for illegal transplant procedures — and it is closer to Albania.

This whole thing makes me sick to my stomach.

Be careful or they'll take your stomach, too. Or is that halal?

Speaking that way about our dear, dear friends the Albanians! Be careful, around here you can be accused of being disloyal for casting aspersions on these special friends of the Administration.

What got me was when the mother of one of the kidnapped boys butchered for his organs, said, “How do I go on living, knowing this?”

"[The] United States of America and the Kosovo Liberation Army stand for the same human values and principles ... Fighting for the KLA is fighting for human rights and American values." (Sen. Joseph Lieberman quoted in the 'Washington Post,' April 28, 1999)

Re-reading this Lieberman quote, I am just speechless.

“Re-reading this Lieberman quote, I am just speechless.”

The evil our government elites, and it makes no difference from what party, supports and indeed has become identified with throughout the Christian east is astonishing and discouraging at the same time. But you know, BB, that’s the way the world has always been and why the wise man or woman chooses with Tsar Lazar.

And it’s my understanding that John McCain feels the same way.

I dread election day.

Go to Kosovo and meet some local Kosovar Albanians. Tell me what you think once you actually have a clue.

Poor, innocent Lurker.

He simply cannot believe, it's quite beyond his grasp, that a terror group with close links to Bin Laden, could do such things to Infidels.

You can just imagine Lurker, in the days following 9 11. Disbelief, that the his hero, Bin Laden, would do such a dastardly deed, and still pinning all his hopes that that beast and all round bounder, Mr Slobo, who'll be blamed.

Poor Lurker.

Hey, Lurker, feel better by putting on "Rambo 3" when Bin Laden and the Mujahideen were still the good guys. My, those were the days.

You're so right. Any bad news about Al Qaeda funded terrrorists simply has to be Putin propoganda.

It's the only answer.

Can you point out where Al Queda was mentioned in the article?

Thanks in advance.

As I said, more BS Putin Propoganda...

As far as I'm concerned we should nuke both sides and be done with it.

Neither one of them can be considered a civilized people.

Well it talks of the KLA who have very close links with Bin Laden. Sorry if it’s too obtuse for you.

As I said, let's just nuke the Serbs and the KLA.

They're both uncivilized murdering savages.

The world would be better off without any of them.

I think NATO should be attacking both sides. Neither one of them is fit for civilized Europe.

So it's alright for NATO to arm the KLA. NATO countries, primarily Germany, the UK and the US all but created the KLA. So why not nuke Germany, the UK and the US too?

At least be consistent.

You're not real bright, are you. I already said I wouldn't arm them, I'd kill them AND the Serbs. They're both a pox on the planet in general and Europe in particular.

I no more believe the BS that comes from the Kosovars than I do the Serbs or their Russian masters. They're all a bunch of terrorists and killers, one no better than the other.

Lurker:"I already said I wouldn't arm them, I'd kill them AND the Serbs"

So the KLA's crimes are sooooo bad that they should be nuked, so surely but surely there should be some punishment to the people who armed such beasts.

Surely.

Any suggestions? If KLA should be nuked perhaps their arms suppliers, the US, should be napalmed? Or cluster bombed? Or just random suicide terror attacks on defenceless civilian targets? You know, punished but not nuked. Sort of mini me nuked.

Any comments on why Israel was a huge arms supplier to the Serbs?

In your opionion, what does that make Israel? In your opinion should Israel be nuked too? Or napalmed? Or cluster bombed? Or just random suicide terror attacks on defenceless civilian targets?

Lurker:"You're not real bright, are you."

Ah, the irony.
