Yugoslavia: Giant Cocaine Bust Linked To Milosevic Underworld

Sun, 29 Oct 2000 07:00:00 GMT

Sunday Times, 29 Oct 2000 - A YUGOSLAV intelligence official has been caught trying to smuggle cocaine with a street value of up to UKP4m out of Venezuela. Diplomats say the case reveals a murky world of multi-million-pound drug smuggling that helped to prop up the regime of Slobodan Milosevic, the former president. Officers of Venezuela's Policia Tecnica Justicia (PTJ) tried to seize Miloslav Markovic as he headed for Caracas airport on September 28, a week before Milosevic was ousted.

Yugoslavia: With Few Police To Stop It, Crime Flourishes

Sat, 23 Oct 1999 07:00:00 GMT

Washington Post, 23 Oct 1999 - JAZINCE, Yugoslavia--A silver truck with two large trailers pulled up to this border crossing with Macedonia recently, and Hasan Koshtanjevci leaned out the window to tell customs officials that he was carrying clothing meant for destitute ethnic Albanians in Kosovo. But when the two U.N. policemen who patrol the crossing peeked beneath a canvas tarp at the rear of the truck, they found a Volkswagen Golf and a Mercedes-Benz, both headed north into the chaotic and crime-ridden environment of post-war Kosovo. The U.N. police ordered the truck back to Macedonia.
