Anchor Lisa Mullins finds out more about the allegations from Michael Montgomery of the Center for Investigative Reporting.
It's never good when a friend is accused of serious crimes. And a US friend ï¿½ the new Balkan nation of Kosovo ï¿½ is about to face some very serious accusations. A report is due to be presented to the Council of Europe tomorrow that says the government of Kosovo is a mafia-like group. The report states that Kosovo's leaders have been involved in drug-trafficking, arms-smuggling, and even organ harvesting.
The US helped install and legitimize this government after the war with Serbia in 1999. A copy of the report was obtained by the British newspaper, The Guardian, and by the US-based Center for Investigative Reporting. Lisa Mullins talks with Michael Montgomery who is a journalist with the Center.
