A group of Australian criminals created a powerful international cartel trafficking in cocaine and MDMA (Ecstasy) that operates from bases in Montenegro, the Netherlands, and Spain, and has connections with Mexican and Colombian mafia, according to the Aussie press.

An investigation conducted by the media giant News Corps and published in their journals, among them "The Australian", pointed out that this Balkanic mafia, led by some of the most wanted Australian criminals, entered the drug through the ocean ports of the country.

"Organized crime in the Balkans is currently the greatest threat to Australia. (The mafia) is rooted and influences local communities, which poses a significant challenge," said a member of the Australian security forces.

According to "The Australian", the origins of the problem can be traced back to the 1980s and 1990s when several crime families infiltrated Australia, allegedly sponsored by former Serb leader Slobodan Milosevic.

The source added that the Australian authorities believe that many of the most feared criminals that they thought were removed from the illegal activities, such as 55-year-old Albanian Glass Ulic, currently lead drug trafficking from bases in Montenegro, Serbia and Spain.

Ulic's gang currently gets about six tons of drug per year to Australia, in addition to destinations such as South Africa, Europe, China and the Americas.

The Australian authorities also suspect that the Balkan-Australian mafia, which operates in the country with some biker gangs, has connections with Mexican, Colombian, and Asian cartels, in addition to South-African, Italian and Dutch mafias, the source added.
