Crackdown on organized crime. Radoncic has sold Dnevni avaz daily prior to Kelmendi investigation. Kelmendi and Gasi payed 30.000 euro for murder of Ramiz Delalic Celo.
Officers of the State Investigative and Protection Agency, SIPA, conducted an extensive action against few dozen persons who are under suspicion of being related to organized crime, including suspicions of several murders and attempted murders, major robberies and other illegal businesses.
Fahrudin Radoncic, the founder of Dnevni avaz daily, sold the company and the newspaper Dnevni avaz in mid-July, his attorney claimed, but the buyer remains still unknown. It is clear now why it was kept top media secret in the country, after Naser Kelmendi was arrested. Radoncic's daily, Dnevni avaz, was offering an alibi to Radoncic in the past few weeks, because he knew about the investigation on Kelmendi and he just prepared himself for that, because of his relations with the Kelmendi.
A source told Nezavisne daily that the first wanted, but fugitive, in the large police action on Wednesday, is Naser Kelmendi, one of the most famous narc-bosses in the world. The source also said that he is suspected, along with Muhamed Ali Gasi, already prisoned, of paying 30.000 euro for the murder of Ramiz Delalic Celo in June 2007.
