Serbian Blood Money?

Interesting... could the Liberal Party of Canada have unwittingly been in reciept of Serbian blood money?

The Yugoslavia-born Mr. Karic became a permanent resident of Canada in 1993 after he and his siblings founded Danjan International Inc., a company that has donated more than $13,000 to the federal Liberal party.

The immigration judge's ruling cites allegations that family-owned companies -- the BK Group and Astra Bank -- profited from privileges they enjoyed as a result of a close relationship with Milosevic.

"Clearly, the Serbian authorities in charge following the fall of the Milosevic regime concluded that the Karic or Astra Bank earned excess profits by virtue of its close proximity to Milosevic," the IRB ruling says.

"There are more than reasonable grounds to believe, therefore, that Mr. Karic was able to benefit personally from his position of remarkable proximity, including as a senior advisor, to Milosevic."
Remember, I did say "unwittingly"... I'm not pointing any fingers here or making any accusations of wrongdoing on the part of the Liberal Party... it's difficult for the Party to know where exactly donated money is coming from. I just find it interesting, that's all... and wonder to myself aloud what other kinds of "interesting" folks may be supporting them...

I mean, many of us have accused the Liberals of being a Party that can be bought, and that has a history of supporting some less than respectable groups... such as the Tamil Tigers, Hezbollah, and such. This story isn't the first time that such accusations have been made.

I must confess, however, that I'm not completely disinterested in seeing if there was any political influence in getting his Permanent Resident paperwork done...

    Liberals are comfortable working with all kinds of terrorist organizations and they're comfortable with stealing money - so it would be no surprise for Liberals to accept blood money.
