Former UNMIK head Bernard Kouchner had been regularly informed and must have known about organized crime in Kosovo, one of former heads of UNMIK police Stu Kellock has stated.

Former UNMIK head Bernard Kouchner had been regularly informed and must have known about organized crime in Kosovo, one of former heads of UNMIK police Stu Kellock has stated.

Hasim Taci and his associates controlled the entire Kosovo, including the police and the borders, Kellock said in a statement for the Radio and Television of Serbia (RTS). The Americans elected Taci leader and everything was allowed for him. His associates enjoyed an ambassador status, he pointed out.

Unless the international community adequately responds to the allegations from the report of Council of Europe (CoE) rapporteur Dick Marty, it will be accused of having done absolutely nothing to stop the tyranny and of trying to cover up another war criminal.

The credibility of numerous organizations is in question and I hope that they will do the right thing - order a complete and unbiased investigation on Taci, his associates and how he managed to get hold of the power, Kellock stressed.

Captain Stu Kellock, former head of UNMIK's Regional Serious Crime Unit, claims that Kouchner must have known the details about organized crime in Kosovo, but added that Hasim Taci was among the untouchables as he had already been elected leader of Kosovo Albanians.

I cannot confirm that Kouchner knew about organ trafficking, but it is absolutely impossible that he had no information about organized crime in Kosovo. The police commissioner informed him on a regular basis, and Kouchner visited the scenes of crime where he tried to draw the attention of the media, Kellock stated for RTS.

Kellock, who was head of UNMIK's Regional Serious Crime Unit from 2000-2001, explained that, after the arrival of UN officers and NATO troops, the mafia came to Kosovo as well.

The rumours on organ trafficking started back when I was in UNMIK, but were not confirmed. There were rumours on a hospital in Pristina and criminal activities that go on there, but at the time there were many other, urgent priorities. I had too few men to be able to investigate rumours, Kellock underscored.
