Moscova, 1999. Tot cu Basescu la Transporturi   octombrie 29th, 2009

 

ArtilerieIn ajunul vizitei premierului Radu Vasile la Moscova de la inceputul lunii noiembrie 1999, vamesii rusi au depistat, in cala de bagaje a unui avion care avea destinatia Tbilisi/Georgia, cinci containere continand bunuri periculoase (conform reglementarii Organizatiei Internationale a Aviatiei Civile – Anexa nr.18 a Conventiei de la Chicago). In acele containere se gaseau cinci piese de artilerie (brandt), munitia aferenta si cateva veste antiglont.

Cercetand documentele de transport, oficialii rusi au constatat ca cele cinci containere au fost imbarcate pe aeroportul Bucuresti Otopeni la bordul cursei regulate de pasageri a companiei British Airways. Odata ajunsa aeronava engleza la destinatie, containerele au fost transferate pe aeroportul Gatewick (Londra) la bordul altei aeronave, cu destinatia finala Tbilisi. Povestea are multe similitudinni cu cea a proiectilelor taiwaneze. Deci a scandalului munitiei, cercetat in prezent de Comisia de Aparare a Parlamentului.

Atat comentariile, cat si ping-urile sunt inchise.

Domnule Traian Melescanu
In Romania functioneaza o mafie a armamentului exrem de periculoasa care este acoperita si sprijinita de diferite instititii ale statului. Aceasta organizatie criminala il are in frunte pe Traian Basescu. Daca romanii nu vor sau nu pot sa se ocupe de el se vor ocupa altii.
Am trimis acum cateva saptamani aceasta scrisoare cerand sprijinul autoritatilor italiene
in investigarea acestei organizatii criminale.

tarile din rasaritul Europei. Fac referinta la doua actiuni ale autoritatile italiene indreptate impotriva teroristilor
proveniti din Romania si o incercare de transport ilegal de armament romanesc catre USA.
Actiunile serviciilor speciale italiene au atras atentia mediei mondiale. Indraznesc sa va deranjez cu o
rugaminte. Va rog sa ma ajutati sa gasess documente despre aceste actiuni si posibilitatea de a discuta cu specialisti italieni in cunostinta de cauza. Va multumesc anticipat.

BASESCU -BOUT CONNECTION

Documents provided ROBERT HORVATH by the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York provide additional details about the case against alleged arms trafficker Viktor
Background

Viktor Bout and an alleged associate, Andrew Smulian, were arrested in Thailand in March 2008 after an elaborate international sting operation organized by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Bout and Smulian have been accused of, among other offenses, conspiring to sell thousands of weapons to three “confidential sources” (CS) working with the DEA who were posing as representatives of the FARC, a Colombian terrorist group. Since his arrest, Bout has been the subject of an international legal tug-of-war between Washington, which is seeking his extradition to the US, and Moscow, which is demanding that he be returned to Russia. In August, Thai courts denied US extradition requests. Prosecutors appealed the ruling and are currently awaiting a decision on the appeal.

The Documents

The documents obtained by the ROBERT HORVATH after his his arrest. These documents include:

MISSILS FROM ROMANIA.
This document is particularly important in regards to the 100 shoulder-fired, surface-to-air missiles, , have been the focus of an international control campaign for nearly seven years because of the threat they pose to military and commercial aircraft. Confirmation that Bout had access to the missiles would suggest the need for renewed vigor in the global fight against shoulder-fired missile proliferation. . According to Kassar’s indictment, he invited a DEA informant to “travel to BULGARIA and ROMANIA where the weapons were being manufactured”. Investigating these claims is important because, if entities in ROMANIA are indeed offering to sell missiles and the other weapons to arms traffickers, immediate action should be taken to identify them and shut down their operations.

OPERATIE SECRETA A FBI
DESCOPERA
CONTRABANDA DE ARME ROMANESTI

DAVID N. KELLEY, the United States Attorney for
the Southern District of New York, PASQUALE D’AMURO, the
Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Office of the FBI,
and RAYMOND W. KELLY, the New York City Police Commissioner,
announced today the unsealing of a complaint in Manhattan federal
court charging 18 individuals with various weapons trafficking
offenses, including a scheme to smuggle rocket propelled grenade
launchers (“RPGs”), shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles
(“SAMs”), and other ROMANIAN military weapons into the United
States for sale. In addition, the defendants are also charged
with conspiring to traffic in machineguns and other similar
assault weapons, and in fact sold eight such weapons during the
course of the investigation.
SOLOMONYAN and SPIES were arrested after
meeting one last time with the CI to finalize their plans to
travel to Eastern Europe to arrange the importation of the
military weapons. The FBI arrested them before they could travel
outside of the U.S. to obtain the weapons.
According to the Complaint, while SOLOMONYAN and SPIES
were actively arranging the importation of the military weapons
from Eastern Europe, they also sold machineguns and assault
weapons to the CI. Utilizing the services of various weapons
traffickers in New York City, Los Angeles, and Florida, the
defendants provided the CI with eight weapons and conspired to
sell the CI many more. As alleged in the Complaint, each weapon
was delivered by the defendants to storage facilities rented by
the FBI on the CI’s behalf. On several occasions, SOLOMONYAN or
SPIES was surveilled delivering the weapons to various storage
locations. Of the eight weapons, three were delivered in New
York City, three were delivered in Los Angeles, and two were
delivered in Fort Lauderdale. The weapons sold to the CI include
an SKS fully-automatic assault rifle;
AK-47; MA-90 Sporter; an AK-47 made by GN
Romarm SA/Cugir; and an AK-47, BA 36 0543, Arsenal, as well as two conversion kits intended to convert both AK-47’s into fully-
automatic machineguns.

FRANCE -AMERICA MAGAZINE du samedi 31 Octobre reprend, sous le titre « le commandant joueur », les accusations formulées dans un article paru le ZIUA ROSCA STANESCU BLOG ( Robert Horvath ) mettant en cause Traian BASESCU en sa qualité de commandant d’un navire roumain qui aurait provoqué pendant l’hiver 1981/1982 un grand incendie dans le port de Rouen, sur la Seine. L’article, citant les déclarations de M. Basescu, l’accuse d’avoir été le responsable de cet incendie et d‘avoir induit en erreur les autorités françaises afin de les empêcher de prouver la culpabilité du navire roumain qu’il dirigeait.

ROUMANIE • Comment le président roumain a berné les Français… il y a vingt-sept ans

PRESIDENT
TRAIAN BASESCU ancien capitaine de marinemarchande, ce dernier est à l’origine d’un incendie mémorable dans leport de Rouen. Un accident dont les circonstances restent plus quetroubles… Nicolas Sarkozy et son homologue roumain Traian Basescu, Bucarest le 4février 2008
AFP Cela s’est passé il y a exactement vingt-sept ans [en décembre 1981].L’actuel président de la Roumanie, Traian Basescu, en était à sonpremier périple en tant que capitaine de vaisseau. A peine trois moisaprès l’obtention de son brevet de capitaine de la marine marchande, ilavait reçu le commandement de l'”Arges”, un navire transportant dupétrole. Un voyage marqué par la poisse. Dans le port de Rouen, àl’embouchure de la Seine, l'”Arges” a pris feu lors du déchargement.L’incendie s’est propagé à 37 autres navires, et le cours de la Seine aété pollué par des hydrocarbures. Rapidement, les Français ontidentifié d’où était parti le feu et ouvert une enquête sur cetincident qui, par son ampleur, est resté dans les annales de l’histoirede la marine moderne.

La procédure judiciaire a durévingt-huit jours. „La justice française faisait son travail.C’est-à-dire que ce n’était pas à moi de prouver que la pollution nevenait pas de moi, mais aux autorités françaises de prouver que lapollution venait de moi”, témoignait Basescu le 23 juin 1998, dans uneinterview accordée à la chaîne de télévision Prima TV. C’est la seuleest unique fois où il est revenu sur cet épisode controversé de sacarrière de marin. „Le feu s’est rapidement propagé sur tout le bassindu port de Rouen, on voyait la colonne de feu depuis des kilomètres.Les enquêteurs se sont orientés vers notre navire parce que c’était leplus grand et que nous déchargions du brut au quai de la raffinerieShell, a-t-il raconté. J’ai dû m’expliquer tous les jours au tribunal,pendant presque un mois. Au final, la justice a été incapable deprouver la responsabilité de l'”Arges” dans cette affaire.”

Traian Basescu est autorisé à repartir en Roumanie, malgré des dégâtsévalués à quelque 12 millions de dollars. „A l’époque, nous étions toussous la surveillance de la Securitate, surtout les marins quivoyageaient à l’étranger”, a encore expliqué l’actuel présidentroumain. „A mon retour, j’ai dû longuement m’expliquer sur ce quis’était passé. Et maintenant je peux le dire : avant que les enquêteursfrançais ne montent sur le bateau, j’ai dissimulé les preuves de laresponsabilité de l'”Arges” dans l’incendie. A l’époque, beaucoup ausein de l’équipage étaient au courant. A Bucarest, nous avons même étéfélicités de notre attitude”, concluait Traian Basescu en 1998.

Pour d’autres, Traian Basescu ne s’est pas contenté de „berner lesFrançais” sur cette affaire. Tudor Danila, un ancien marin émigré auCanada dans les années 1980, a de nombreux doutes sur son parcoursainsi que sur la véritable mission de l'”Arges” à cette époque. „Dansla Roumanie communiste, pour partir à l’étranger juste après avoirobtenu son brevet de capitaine, il fallait avoir de solides appuis ausein du Parti communiste”, remarque-t-il.

TraianBasescu a reconnu à demi-mot que, durant sa carrière de commandant denavire, il avait effectué des „transports spéciaux”, sans s’étendre surleur nature. Selon Danila, il ne pouvait s’agir que du trafic d’armes :”Dans ce cas d’espèce, les ordres venaient directement de la Securitateet nous étions sous étroite surveillance tout le long du voyage.” Unechose est sûre, selon l’ancien marin : on ne saura jamais ce qui s’estvraiment passé à Rouen en 1981, ni ce que transportait exactementl'”Arges” à cette époque.

ROUMANIE
Comment le président roumain a berné les Français… il y a vingt-sept ans
En visite à Bucarest le 4 février, Nicolas Sarkozy a rencontré son homologue roumain, Traian Basescu. Ancien capitaine de marine marchande, ce dernier est à l’origine d’un incendie mémorable dans le port de Rouen. Un accident dont les circonstances restent plus que troubles…

REUTERS:
” PRESIDENT OF ROMANIA SUSPECT OF CRIME ”
While a ship commander, Traian Basescu was suspected to be the origin of fire on several ships harbored in Rouen, France, on the Seine in 1982.

The fresh commander of the „Arges” ship prevented investigators’ access aboard until deleting the traces. He explained: „We changed something on the device before allowing French authorities access aboard, which made our guilt impossible to prove.” Basescu lied to the French, but not to the ex Securitate (Communist Secret Service in Romania). The commander recounted: „I explained to the Securitate officials what had happened to us there. (…) When getting home I couldn’t hide it. I had to tell at least the ship owner, I couldn’t lie to him and in the crew there were enough who knew what had happened.”

The Romanian ship left Rouen, but leaving behind an incident involving the Romanian state, a $ 12 million accusation against the ship, effecting from the fire that had caught 32 ships.

After the incident when Basescu had tried a bluff and won, in 1984 he got promoted on ‘Biruinta’, the admiral ship of the Romanian fleet. Therefore his changing his mind about resigning as President is no news, but only a bluff. (…) (A.M.)

The accident is still part of the history of the modern marine. 37 ships have been set on fire in the French Harbor Rouen and the Seine had been polluted by the ship led by the current Romanian President. Basescu is quiet about this event in his carrier, even though there has been a moment in time when he recognized the accident and admitted he had lied to the French authorities.

„In other words, even though craven gun manufacturers tried to evade the ban, those copycat guns did not replace banned guns in equal numbers, at least when traced to crimes. I want to spend a couple of minutes and explain to you about a shipment that was recently found by Italian customs. Some 8,000 AK-47 assault rifles were on their way from the Romanian port of Constanta to New York City, according to press reports and BATF information, apparently bound for a gun store in Georgia by the name of Century International Arms. These guns had a value of more than $7 million — 8,000 AK-47s.
. Though this shipment may very well have been illegal in any case under a 1989 Executive Order, think of one gun store buying 8,000 AK-47s in anticipation of 5 days from today.
Think of where guns like these are going to go. Some are going to go to legitimate gun owners. Others are going to go to gang bangers. They are going to be sold out of the backseats of automobiles and on street corners to criminals. They have become the weapon of choice for those who go up against the police. Mr. President, that is 8,000 AK-47s in one shipment coming into the United States.”

Italy Seizes 8,000 Kalashnikovs Headed to U.S.

– ROMARM AS CUGIR-
ROME (Reuters) – Italian customs officers seized more than 8,000 Kalashnikov assault rifles and other weapons on a ship headed to the United States, officials said Tuesday. The arms, worth about $7.15 million, were discovered aboard a ship arriving from Romania that pulled into the southern Italian port of Gioia Tauro on its way to the United States, Italy’s customs said in a statement. According to the travel documents, the arms belong to a large U.S. company with headquarters in the state of Georgia.
“We know that the destination was North America, but we don’t effectively know if that’s where the arms were going,” a customs official told RAI state television.
The arms were found inside three containers during a routine customs check earlier this week. They were confiscated due to discrepancies in the customs forms, but the news was only made public Tuesday.
The customs office said the weapons had been described as “common guns” instead of assault rifles and longer-range combat arms in the travel documentation. ($1-.8390 Euro)
