Speculation Surrounds Case of Albanian Whistle-Blower Kosta Trebicka's Death, Miami Arms Dealer Efraim Diveroli and links to the Albanian Mafia !

Oct. 8th 2008, The investigation into the death of a whistle-blower Kosta Trebicka in Albania appears to be nearing its conclusion, but with little hope of quelling the suspicion and speculation surrounding the case.

Kosta Trebicka, a witness in an inquiry, died (possibly murdered) last month, 9/12/2008. The whistle-blower, Kosta Trebicka, uncovered evidence of public corruption in the export of ammunition from the Communist era in Albania . His accusations were followed by arrests in Albania and charges against the employees of an arms-dealing company (AEY Inc) in Miami Fl, United States, but only after an explosion at a munitions facility in the town of Gerdeci Albania killed 26 people, including children.

Mr. Trebicka, 48, a witness in the investigation into the explosion, a national tragedy in Albania, was found dead on a rural roadside near his car (see video click here). According to "News 24 TV" Albania , Trebicka was linked with the American intelligence service CIA about the investigation of trafficking weapons by the Albanian army and Albanian mafia and he was the top person who knew everything about the Gerdeci Blast scandal of Albania last March 2008.

Albania's government said on Friday Sept 12 2008 it was looking into the sudden death of an arms industry figure who was helping prosecutors investigate a weapons sale to the United States and an explosion that killed 26 people. Television pictures (see video click here) showed businessman Kosta Trebicka, his head covered in blood, sprawled on his back on a dirt road in a remote area of eastern Albania, where he had been hunting. His off-road car was nearby, and appeared to be damaged. Trebicka was involved in repackaging ageing Chinese ammunition that was being sold from Albania to AEY Inc (Efraim Diveroli), a U.S. firm contracted by the Pentagon to supply the Afghan army.

Sound clip 1 Audio ................................................
Trebicka: What’s happening with your pal Pinari?
Diveroli: I don’t know, you tell me, did you make a deal with him with the boxes?Trebicka: I don’t want to make a deal with him, you know that he is a crook, you told me before that he’s a mafia guy, didn’t you?
Diveroli: I think he is, either he’s the (Albanina) mafia or the (Albanina) mafia is controlling him. Either way he’s a problem. The problem is, I don’t have a choice. I have to deal with him. The U.S. government is expecting the products. I have no decision to make.

Sound clip 2 Audio.....................................
Diveroli: What’s going on with the whole friggin’ thing here, …(inaudible conversation about Pinari….) OK, Kosta, the company that’s doing the packing might want to buy your packing material, I’m going to broker the deal…
Trebicka: Which one is the company, is it still Delijorgji?
Diverolli: I have no fxxking idea, we’re waiting for Pinari to give us the details of this company. I will push this sale very hard to go through.

Sound clip 3 Audio.................................
Diveroli: ……….(Some talk about services Trebicka is still supposed to do for Diveroli.) I’ve been 100% with you. I did not remove you from this job. You understand that? I have nothing to do with this. Even though Pinari asked me to, and he’s forcing me to, I have never supported this decision. I’m very, very upset, I’m very concerned.
Trebicka: Is he still working with Henry Thomet?
Diveroli: I think he’s still working with Henry. I’m still working with Henry. I have to work with Henry. I’m working with Henry.

Sound Clip 4 Audio......................
Diveroli: …I’m different than Henry, I can’t play monkey business with the (Albanina) mafia and Delijorgji and all those fxxking guys in Albania….. I’m a U.S. company, I’m working for the government, everyone is watching me. Pinari needs a guy like Henry in the middle to take care of him and his buddies (Albanian Mafia), which is none of my business. I don’t want to know about that business, I want to know about legitimate businesses. That’s my feeling, that’s my feeling on the situation, that’s my idea, that’s my opinion.

Sound clip 5 Audio .................................
Some small talk, discussion about George Bush visit to Albania…
Trebicka: ….but I think with Pinari and his (Albanian) mafia guys and Delijorgji and Henry, it will be difficult for you to go ahead because they will create lots of problems …. Probably I will be invited in Washington DC from the CIA guys and from my friends over there. .. two weeks from now I will come to Florida to shake hands with you and discuss future deals.
Diveroli: I like that. Let’s do that.

Sound clip 6 Audio.......................
Diveroli: I have a good deal going on in Serbia right now that I might need some financing for…. Kosta, Kosta, I have an idea, maybe, you could finish packing, for example, the two and half million you owe me. And Pinari and Delijorgji will see your operation is already moving smoothly and they’re not going to want to disrupt it, so they’ll buy the material from you. They don’t have to go around and drive to Macedonia and schlep around. Maybe this is a good idea, I think. Do you think Pinari is actually going to do the job?

Sound clip 7 Audio .....................
Trebicka: I found good partners and I think I can continue the job. I don’t know about Pinari, Delijorgji and his (Albanina ) mafia…if they want to still work with me… I will not talk, I will not open mouth, I will do whatever you tell me to do.
Diveroli: I understand…. I’m just telling you… I protect you, you protect me type of thing. Let me speak with Pinari. Pinari knows he has to do the packaging.

  1. Der entlassene General Stabs Chef, Ylli Pinari: alle sagen ganz klar das Famir Mediu der Architekt des Geschäftes ist und damit die Verantwortung hat.
