Die Sache ist nicht neu und jeder wusste es!

Deshalb noch eine kleine Ergänzung.

9.000,-- DM bezahlte damals die Caritas den Bundes Offizieren (pensioniert), für eine One-Way Fahrt in den Kosovo oder Albanien in 1999. Die LKW's wurden dann illegal dort verkauft.

Dies zu den Caritas Geschäften! Die tranportierten von Hamburg Mehl in den Balkan, obwohl z.B. in Durres das Mehl viel billiger war, nämlich zu Weltmarkt Preisen erstanden hätte werden können.

Die Transport und Lohn Kosten, überstiegen bei weiten den WAren Wert.

The Vatican’s ‘CARITAS’ charity trafficked NATO weapons to the KLA

Andy Wilcoxson


Caritas is an old, and well known Roman Catholic charity based in the Vatican. It has branches all over the world and has been active in the Balkans for some time.

This paper will answer the following question: Is Caritas a legitimate humanitarian organization, or is it engaged in more nefarious activities, such as arms trafficking?

This paper will look into possible connections between Caritas and Iranian weapons smuggling in Bosnia. It will also explore an incident that occurred in 1999 when a Caritas convoy was caught, by Italian customs officials, smuggling 30 tons of weaponry to the Kosovo Liberation Army.


In 1934 Croatia's Catholic Archbishop Alojzije Stepinac established the Croatian branch of Caritas. [1] Stepinac has been dubbed "the patron saint of genocide" because of the role he played in the genocide committed by Croatia's World War II-era fascist regime. [2]

During the war, Caritas was active in Croatian concentration camps. The organization was tasked with forcibly re-baptizing and converting Orthodox Christians to Roman Catholicism. [3]


In March of 1993 the Bosnian Serb Army commander, General Ratko Mladic, first accused Caritas of supplying weapons to Croat and Muslim fighters in Bosnia under the guise of humanitarian assistance. [4] [5] Gen. Mladic isn’t the only one to claim that weapons shipments were disguised as humanitarian aid. According to a report issued by the U.S. congressional subcommittee set-up to investigate Iranian arms transfers to Croatia and Bosnia "the humanitarian aid flow to Bosnia consisted primarily of convoys, organized by Muslim humanitarian organizations that later played a significant role in the Iranian arms pipeline to Bosnia." [6]

According to the Congressional report, the leader of the Islamic community in Croatia, Imam Sevko Omerbasic, was the "linch-pin figure in the establishment and operation of the Iranian arms pipeline." [7] Caritas, although not an Islamic charity, was linked directly to Omerbasic by a witness at the Hague Tribunal. Sefkija Djidic, a witness at the Blaskic trial testified that Omerbasic led a Caritas convoy to the Croatian stronghold of Vitez during the war. [8] The effectiveness of Caritas as a humanitarian agency is called into question by the testimony of another witness at the Blaskic trial. A protected witness testified that nobody dared go to Caritas to seek assistance. The witness, a Muslim from Kiseljak, said that if they tried to obtain any help from Caritas that they would suffer reprisals at the hands of the Croatian army. The witness said, "people preferred to go hungry than go to Caritas to get some aid from them." [9] Caritas’s activities outside of the Balkans may also be dubious. In 1993 UN peacekeeping troops found a weapons cache at children’s hospital linked to Caritas, in Mogadishu, Somalia. [10]

So far the case against Caritas with regard to arms trafficking has been circumstantial. Nobody reported seeing Caritas delivering weapons to the children’s hospital in Somalia. Gen. Mladic didn’t provide any explicit examples of where Caritas was caught trafficking weapons in his interviews, and we don’t know if the Caritas convoy to Vitez
contained weapons or not, even though the convoy was led by Sevko Omerbasic, the man identified by the U.S. Congress as the "linch-pin" in the Iranian arms pipeline.


On April 12 1999, a huge haul of arms and ammunition, destined for the KLA, was found in the Italian port of Ancona aboard trucks leased by Caritas. [11] The cargo had officially been declared as a German Caritas humanitarian aid shipment for Kosovo refugees. [12] The trucks were loaded at the Caritas center in Sarajevo. [13] The customs officials, who searched the trucks, found 30 tons of war material, including anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles, rocket launchers and machine guns. [14]

Most of the arms were of Russian or East European origin, but many bore NATO markings. More than 1,000 mortars said to have been "stolen" from a NATO arsenal in Germany were found onboard the trucks. [15]

There was some legitimate humanitarian aid onboard the trucks, but it was of poor quality, much of the food had already passed its expiration date. [16]

Italian customs officials arrested three drivers, Robert Buellesbach, Sead Klakar, and Drasco Kovacevic. [17]

The Italian authorities claimed that Buellesbach had links to German intelligence. [18] On that basis one could speculate that he’s the one who "stole" the mortars from the German NATO base. The 15-meter-long trucks had been rebuilt to transport illegal cargo. [19] One truck was fitted with a double floor, while another one had a
secret closet behind the driver's cabin big enough for six people [20]. Italian authorities said that the arms were destined for a training camp of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in Scutari in northern Albania. [21]

The name of the consignee on the export documents, was one Father Luciano Augustino, a parish priest in Scutari. [22] General Alberto D'Amico, the military commander in charge of customs for the region that includes Ancona, confirmed claims by Italian security sources that it was impossible that British and American intelligence could have been unaware of the smuggling. [23]

A NATO spokesman said that while the Alliance had no contact with the KLA. "Some individual countries which are member countries of NATO may have some contacts. Of course that is not a guarantee that such things are not happening, smuggling and so on." [24]

Caritas denied that it had any role in the arms smuggling. It issued a statement saying, "These trucks are not from Caritas, even if the logo (on the trucks) is the same." [25]


The trucks were leased by Caritas, and loaded at the Caritas center in Sarajevo, and we’re supposed to believe Caritas when it says that it had nothing to do with this? Just like were supposed to believe that somebody managed to walk onto a German NATO instillation and steal over 1,000 mortars?

The conclusion is obvious. The Vatican was using its Caritas "charity" to provide a cover for NATO, or at least German, arms smuggling to the KLA. They may also have provided Iran, the world’s leading terrorist state, with the same cover in Bosnia when Omerbasic led the Caritas convoy to Vitez.

The Vatican’s goals are the same now as they were when Stepinac founded the Croatian branch of Caritas, and had it forcibly convert Serb inmates held in Croatian concentration camps to Roman Catholicism. The best proof of this is the fact that Pope John Paul II, rather than distancing the Catholic Church from Stepinac, did the opposite. The
Pope beatified Stepinac on October 3, 1998. [26]


Etliche Chefs von Hilfs Organisationen sind in Italien im Gefängnis, weil sie teilweise die Waren und LKW's selbst aktiv stahlen.

In Deutschland wo die Hilfs Güter Verbrecher, weiter unbestraft hausen, kann weder die Caritas noch das Rote Kreuz, eine einfache Mittel Verwendung belegen, mangels Controlling.

ROME, May 3 (AFP) - Arms and ammunition seized April 12 in the
Adriatic port of Ancona from a humanitarian aid shipment were found on
trucks leased by the Catholic charity Caritas, Il Corriere della Sera
reported Monday.
Caritas later issued a statement denying any involvement with the
trucks or the aid shipment.
"These trucks are not from Caritas, even if the logo (on the trucks)
is the same," the statement said.
Customs officials searched the trucks at Ancona port and found 30
tonnes of weapons, including grenade- and missile-launchers, as well as
munitions believed meant for the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).
The newspaper said the trucks had started their journey at a Caritas
center in Sarajevo and passed through a Croatian port before landing at
Ancona, from where they were to be sent to the Shkodra refugee camp in
The weapons were found in secret compartments under the trucks,
driven by three Bosnians.
Il Corriere said that a priest from Kosovo, who was scheduled to
receive the shipment, was being sought in connection with the seizure.
