Kosovo Albanian drug-boss admits friendship with al Qaeda leader

September 28, 2006 -- A Kosovo Albanian drug-boss, Princ Dobrosi, says that he is a friend of a Pakistani-born al Qaeda leader Arfan Qaeder Bhatti who was recently arrested in Norway on charges of planning to terrorize Israeli and American embassies in Oslo, Norway.

According to a Czech daily Mlada fronta Dnes, Bhatti has solicited operational help from a Kosovo Albanian drug-boss Princ Dobrosi in order to plan attacks on the Czhech capital, Prague.

"We got acquainted in the Ringerike prison in Norway a few years ago," Dobrosi admitted to the Czech daily Mlada fronta Dnes by phone from his home in Pec.

Dobrosi's drug empire was once based in Prague where he was arrested and subsequently escaped.

Dobrosi headed the strongest Kosovo Albanian drug mafia gang that was in control of the northern branch of the Balkan route headquartered in the Albanian dominated Serb province of Kosovo. Dobrosi's gang controlled the distribution of heroin and other drugs from Kosovo to Nordic countries via the Czech Republic.

Various Kosovo Albanian clans maintain distribution branches in other European cities. Dobrosi is the first of the ethnic Albanian drug bosses to admit direct links to al Qaeda.

Ethnic Albanians in Kosovo are predominantly Muslim.
