UN protects Balkan Sex Industry. (Insider Report).

Ben Johnston, a former employee of DynCorp (a Virginia-based defense contractor), was fired from his aircraft maintenance job in Kosovo after filing complaints against what he described as the "perverse, illegal and inhumane behavior" of the firm's employees.

A Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) lawsuit filed on behalf of Johnston alleges that DynCorp employees working as part of the ongoing UN-commanded occupation of Bosnia and Kosovo have purchased "illegal weapons, women, forged passports and [participated in] other immoral acts. Johnston witnessed coworkers and supervisors literally buying and selling women for their own personal enjoyment, and employees would brag about the various ages and talents of the individual slaves they had purchased." Some of the "sex slaves" were allegedly as young as 12 years old.

"Rather than acknowledge and reward Johnston's effort to get this behavior stopped, DynCorp fired him, forcing him into protective custody by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID), until the investigators could get him safely out of Kosovo and returned to the United States," reports the February 4th issue of Insight magazine. According to Johnston, DynCorp is "as immoral and elite as possible, and any rule they can break they do." But the vices described by Johnston have flourished amid the UN-supported culture of corruption that has enveloped the Balkan "peacekeeping" occupations.

"The United Nations quashed an investigation earlier his year into whether UN police were directly involved in the enslavement of Eastern European women in Bosnian brothels," reported the December 27th Washington Post. David Lamb, a former Philadelphia police officer who worked as a human rights investigator in Bosnia, alleges that Romanian, Fijian, and Pakistani officers attached to the UN's International Police Task Force have been involved in the sex slave trade; the Romanians were specifically accused of recruiting Romanian women, obtaining false documents for them, and selling them to the owners of Bosnian brothels. "I have to say there were credible witnesses, but I found real reluctance on the part of the United Nations ... leadership to investigate these allegations," declared Lamb.
