ТРГОВИНА СМРТИ

Унутрашња прича о томе како су бруталне албанске банде порасле од највећих британских трговаца људима до трговаца кокаином

АЛБАНСКЕ банде кријумчариле огромне пошиљке кокаина директно из Европе промијениле су изглед британског тржишта дроге.

Дрога је најјефтинија од деведесетих година прошлог века и чистији него што је то била деценијама раније, док албанске банде користе законе тржишта да преузму скоро потпуно британско тржиште кокаина од 5 милијарди фунти.

Олси Бехелули, позирајући са 240,000 фунти готовине на Твиттеру, осуђен је на 11 година затвора у 2015. након што је више од 4 милиона фунти кокаина и хероина одузето од његове албанске банде у северном Лондону

Хиљаде Албанаца стигло је у Велику Британију крајем деведесетих и почетком 2000. године током избегличке кризе.

Међу њима је било много Албанаца који су тврдили да су косовски у ономе што је од тада описано као “највећи случај пребацивања држављанства” у скоријој историји имиграције у Великој Британији.

Укључили су и малу, тврдокорну групу ратних ветерана која је жељела да оствари свој печат у Британији.

Многи су се запослили као чувари у срцу лондонске трговине сексом у Сохо – тада је ту доминирала малтешка мафија – гдје су први пут дошли до пажње јавности.

Албанци су почели да раде заједно са макроима – пре него што су преузели лондонско подземље рекета и проституције.

За полицајце на терену је била фасцинантна способност Албанаца да користе брутално насиље, посебно против сопствених жена које су биле жртве трговине људима, што је уздрмало трговину људима у подземљу.

Пол Холмс, бивши полицијски инспектор и шеф јединице за сексуалну трговину у Шкотској, описао је како је бруталност Албанаца шокирала његов тим официра.

Он је рекао: “Са Албанцима би вас могли оставити збуњеним због тога што користе такве нивое насиља над женама када им то није било уопште потребно.

“Било је то скоро ствар статуса. Имали смо приче о женама које су тешко повређене без икаквог разлога – и то на лудачки начин.”

“Већина организованих криминалних група које воде жене у проституцији би нанеле насиље женама у ономе што бисмо назвали “макро премлаћивањем “, тако да ниједна повреда није утицала на њену способност продаје сексуалних услуга.

“Ударили су се по торзу који је могао бити прекривен сликама или претучен на доњим ногама, које би могле бити покривене чарапама.”

“Али Албанци су само батинали жене без рационалног разлога – били су веома, веома насилни.

“Лондонска трговина сексом је тако велико тржиште – наш страх тада је био да би рекли” могли бисмо исто тако поновити исти модел, али у другим областима криминала “- очигледно да је то тржиште наркотика.”

Употреба кокаина је достигла ниво епидемије у Великој Британији, а Велика Британија је проглашена „кокаинским престоницом“ Европе. Верује се да је више од десетине одраслих Британаца пробало кокаин, а код младих је бројка још гора. Запањујућа један од пет младих од 16 до 24 године узела је кокаин у прошлој години. Све су то искористиле албанске банде да преузму тржиште кокаина.

The inside story of how brutal Albanian gangs rose from the UK’s premier sex traffickers to kingpin cocaine dealers

ALBANIAN gangs smuggling huge shipments of cocaine direct from Europe have changed the face of the UK’s drug market.

The drug is at its cheapest since the 1990s and purer than it has been for a decade as Albanian gangs use the laws of retail to pull off a near total takeover of Britain’s £5bn cocaine industry.

Thousands of Albanians arrived in the UK in the late 1990s and early 2000s during a refugee crisis.

Among them were many Albanians claiming to be Kosovan in what has since been described as “the biggest case of nationality switching” in recent UK immigration history.

They included a small, hardened band of war veterans keen to make their mark in Britain.

Many took jobs as door staff in the heart of London’s sex and vice trade in Soho – then dominated by the Maltese mafia – where they first came to national attention.

The Albanians began working alongside the sex dons – before it is claimed they quickly took over London’s prostitution rackets.

SEX TRADE TAKEOVER

For police officers on the ground it was the Albanians’ ability to use brutal violence, especially against their own trafficked women, which shook the underworld sex trade.

Paul Holmes, a former police inspector and head of Scotland Yard’s sex trafficking unit, described how the Albanians’ brutality shocked his team of officers.

He said: “With the Albanians they could leave you perplexed as to why they were using such levels of violence on women when they didn’t need to.

“It was almost a status or a power trip. We had stories of women who were severely injured for no reason whatsoever – and in a crazy way.

Paul Holmes, ex-head of Scotland Yard sex trafficking unit

“Most of the organised crime groups running women in prostitution would inflict violence on women in what we would call a ‘pimp beating’ so any injuries didn’t affect her sale-ability.

“Beaten on the torso which could be covered by a basque or beaten on the lower legs which could be covered by stockings.

“But the Albanians were just handing out beatings all over – they were very, very violent.

“The London sex trade is such a huge market – our fear then was that they would say ‘we might as well replicate the same model but in other areas of crime’ – the obvious one being narcotics.”

End Of The Line

Cocaine use is reaching epidemic levels in Britain, with the UK branded the ‘Coke capital’ of Europe.

More than one in ten British adults are believed to have tried it, and with young people the numbers are even worse.

A staggering one in five 16 – 24-year-olds have taken cocaine in the last year.

That’s why The Sun has launched its End Of The Line campaign, calling for more awareness around the drug.

Cocaine use can cause mental health problems such as anxiety and paranoia, while doctors have linked the rise in cheap, potent coke to an increase in suicide rates.

People from all walks of life, from builders and labourers to celebrities like Jeremy McConnell – who is backing our campaign – have fallen foul of its lure.

It’s an issue which is sweeping the UK and, unless its tackled now, means a mental health crisis is imminent.

In 1999, asylum applicants categorised under Yugoslavia (Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro) were the highest at 17 per cent of 91,200, and then eight per cent of 98,900 in 2000.

Tony Smith, former director general of the UK’s Border Force, explained how immigration officials believed Albanians were claiming to be Kosovans on a large scale during that period.

He said: “It was record numbers and a lot of them were Kosovans, or at least said they were.

“The immigration service were completely swamped at Dover, getting ferry-loads of these, even camping on the beaches at Dover.

Probably the biggest case of nationality switching we had seen

Tony Smith, former director general of UK Border Force

“We didn’t have the time or even computers back then to process them properly. It was probably the biggest case of nationality switching we’d seen, that was the beginning.

“It’s really hard to dis-prove that stuff, then more likely they will put down roots making removals very difficult and they stay by default.”

The brutally violent criminals, trading on their reputation as veterans of the Balkan Wars, soon moved from smuggling people to guns and drugs into the UK.

In Europe they became allies of the Turkish and Italian gangs as enforcers, hitmen and traffickers of heroin from Afghanistan.
