Outside The Walls: Kosovo: Fighting Crime

Outstanding blog post on fighting crime in Kosovo:
As noted here before, there is certainly crime and smuggling in northern Kosovo, as there is in southern Kosovo. Interestingly, the one area in which Serbs and Albanians have always been able to cooperate fully is organized crime. Indeed, smuggling into the north is only really profitable because much of what enters “illegally” goes to the much larger market south of the Ibar. Busting up these organized criminal gangs would presumably pull in a fair number of persons of all ethnicities and maybe even some officials and police, south as well as north. Smuggling knows no bounds in Kosovo. [emphasis added]
