The drug trafficking mafia of ethnic Albanians in Kosovo is increasing using Kosovo Serbs for smuggling narcotics, according to the Serbian service for combating organized crime.
The Serbian police services are investigating the information that the Kosovo mafia is cooperating with organized crime groups from Serbia, using Kosovo Serbs as intermediaries, reported the Serbian newspaper Blitz.
The Serbian drug traffickers are reported to have very strong connections with the Croatian and Bulgarian drug dealers. Their cooperation with the Albanians, however, is generally believed to be much weaker, and there has been very little mutual penetration between Serbian and Albanian mafia groups in general, says a source from Serbian police.
