Blic: Bulgaria Bases Serbian Mafiosos
Serbian underworld chaps see Bulgaria mainly as a transit area on the path to Afghanistan and a temporary shelter for criminals seeking to escape justice in their country, the newspaper said quoting an anonymous police source of Serbia.
Blic dwells on the illegal channels connecting the two neighbouring countries, which became more transparent after the assassination of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djundjic in March 2003.
The so-called Zemun Klan, suspected to have masterminded the premier's killing, used Bulgaria as the main source of drug supplies, Blic reads.
According to the newspaper, at the moment Bulgaria is informally vested with the leading role in drugs and human trafficking, illegal synthetic drugs manufacture, forgery of money, cheques, credit cards, and cigarette and oil smuggling.
