Kosovo Albanian implicated in Norway terror

September 27, 2006 — One of the four suspects arrested in Norway on terrorism charges last week was in contact with Princ Dobrosi, a Kosovo Albanian mafia boss that formerly ran the largest European heroin empire from Prague.

According to the Norwegian daily Dagbladet, Dobrosi has established connections with one of the Oslo detainee, Pakistani Arfan Qadeer Bhatti, who headed a four member al-Qaeda group planning attacks on the Israeli and US embassies in Oslo.

“Dobrosi had contacts with one of the people who have been detained in Norway in connection with allegedly planned attacks on Jewish targets,” Gunnar Hultgreen, reporter of the Norwegian daily Dagbladet, said citing his sources from the police and intelligence.

Arfan Qadeer Bhatti visited Dobrosi in Pristina, Kosovo, this summer. It is not clear what the reasons for the visit was but unconfirmed reports suggest that the two may have been plotting attacks on Jewish targets in Prague.

Jiri Komorous, head of the Czech anti drug squad, confirmed on Monday that Dobrosi recently spent several weeks in Prague but did not want to comment whether Dobrosi is tied with terrorists.

“We don’t have information that he would continue pursuing drug business,” Komorous said. 

Norwegian police has been pursuing Dobrosi since 1996 because he escaped from a local prison after bribing a ward who smuggled him out in a van with dirty linen. Fugitive Dobrosi underwent a plastic surgery in Croatia
