Since yesterday, the Macedonian police is in action at various locations in Skopje, due to the tip it received for suspicious money transfer.
Our sources confirm, a Macedonian bank had tipped off the Authorities since January 2007 of suspicious money transfers. An Albanian, Bekir Halimi has been receiving 2,115 euros payments from Kuwaiti Organization "Revival Islamic Heritage Society".
"The Revival Islamic Heritage Society has been blacklisted by the United Nations because of their close ties to terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda", said Interior Ministry's spokesperson, Ivo Kotevski. The money transfer through a swift account was done via Kuwaiti and two German banks evnetually ending up on Halimi's account.
According to the Interior Ministry's counter terrorism unit, Bekir Halimi had central role in all activities in the financing of humanitarian organization Bamiresija.
Macedonian Police had entered Bamiresija's facilities to investigate. It entered the operational facility on Lazar Iliev street, the praying areas on Petre Gorgiev street #63, the publishing house Nun, on Lazar Tanev street as well as the Trade Organization "R-Orient" and Studio Facility on Pance Nedolkovski street.
For a humanitarian organization, there are certainly many facilities. According to our source who spoke on condition of anonymity, these "humanitarian" organizations are used primarily for financing terrorism as well as money laundering.
Macedonian police seized electronic equipment, financial information. No charges have been filed so far as the investigation is ongoing, however, Bekir Halimi may face charges on financing terrorism, unlawful financial work, money laundering. Connections are sought on a global level between Halimi's organization and others.
Our sources confirmed there are suspicion that Halimis' organization has been accepting money from other organizations as well. The annual funds Bamiersija has received surpass 4.5 milion euros.
It is thought, the groupations are connected through out the Balkans, in Kosovo, Albania, Sandzak, Bosnia, Montenegro, coordinated by very powerful organization at a global level.
Halimi's organization is contrary to the constitutional laws of Macedonia with their goal being the creation of sharia law in this country.
Which Macedonia? The area of Greece or the part of the former Yugoslavia?
The former Yugoslavia Macedonia. It’s capital is Skopje which is mentioned in the very first sentence. Did you even read any of the article or just the title?
We saved those kuwaiti a$$holes! It’s past time to start leaning on them heavily.
Story indicates something quite different from the headline. When are we going to start leaning heavily on those German "a$$holes!"
Amen brother! Germany has been pursuing it's aggressive foreign policy ever since it was reunified.
The EC was 11-1 AGAINST the breakup of Yugoslavia. They knew the blood would flow. Germany was the only one for it. After the arm twisting the EC was unanimous in favor. Their fingerprints are all over the Balkans.
Germany's Berlin to Baghdad dream continues!
We save their sorry behinds from Saddam. We end up in this Trillion dollar War on Terror, and Kuwait is financing Al Qaeda?
Okie Dokie, time to pull out our military and our people and flatten the area ...turn the area into parking lots...Enough! Enough! ENOUGH!!
I’ve supported this War but this did it! Get our Troops out of there. They’re surrounded by an enemy in which the State Department and the Pentagon expect our Military to fight a PC war? Get our military out now!
“An Albanian, Bekir Halimi has been receiving 2,115 euros payments from Kuwaiti Organization “Revival Islamic Heritage Society”.”
I’m not surprised, the protestations of the incumbent administration and the McCain crowd to the contrary notwithstanding; Albanians, the Islamofascist Somalis of the Balkans!
Many of us have come to this conclusion. Oil billions sent to the CARTEL on a daily basis are financing a world wide war on the non Muslim world.
We have already become their vassals - dhimmis - by being forced to live in fear in our own nation from the airport humiliations to our best and brightest being killed in Iraq.
