Arrow NATO intervention in Bosnia

The NATO intervention in Bosnia consisted of a series of actions undertaken by NATO to establish and then preserve peace during and after the Bosnian War. NATO's intervention began as largely political and symbolic, but gradually increased to include large-scale air operations and the deployment of approximately 60,000 soldiers under Operation Joint Endeavor.

NATO's first involvement in both the Bosnian War and the Yugoslav wars in general came in February 1992, when the alliance issued a statement urging all the belligerents in the conflict to allow the deployment of United Nations peacekeepers. While primarily symbolic, this statement paved the way for later NATO actions...

Largely as a result of the bombing under Operation Deliberate Force and changes in the battlefield situation, the belligerents in the Bosnian War met in Dayton, Ohio in November 1995, and signed the Dayton Accords, a peace treaty. As part of the accords, NATO agreed to provide 60,000 peacekeepers for the region, as part of the Implementation Force (IFOR). In December 1995, under Operation Joint Endeavor, NATO deployed these forces. These forces remained deployed until December 1996, when those remaining in the region were transferred to the Stabilization Force (SFOR). SFOR peacekeepers remained in Bosnia until 2004.


A mercenary is a person who takes part in an armed conflict, who is not a national or a party to the conflict, and is "motivated to take part in the hostilities essentially by the desire for private gain.


Leonardo da Vinci's Il Condottiero, 1480.

There is a blur in the distinction between a "mercenary" and a "foreign volunteer", when the primary motive of a soldier in a foreign army is uncertain. For instance, the French Foreign Legion and the Gurkhas of the British and Indian armies are not mercenaries under the laws of war, since although they may meet many of the requirements of Article 47 of the 1949 Additional Protocol I, they are exempt under clauses 47(a)(c)(d)(e)&(f); some journalists describe them as mercenaries regardless.


Wayne Edwards from Cefn Mawr near Wrexham joined the Royal Welsh when he was 18. The lance corporal was shot in the head and killed eight years later aged 26.



"He was killed by a sniper, he was escorting an ambulance with three ladies in, two were pregnant and the sniper had him through the slit of the tank and hit him in the head," she recalled.



Art 47. Mercenaries

1. A mercenary shall not have the right to be a combatant or a prisoner of war.
2. A mercenary is any person who:

(a) is especially recruited locally or abroad in order to fight in an armed conflict;
(b) does, in fact, take a direct part in the hostilities;
(c) is motivated to take part in the hostilities essentially by the desire for private gain and, in fact, is promised, by or on behalf of a Party to the conflict, material compensation substantially in excess of that promised or paid to combatants of similar ranks and functions in the armed forces of that Party;
(d) is neither a national of a Party to the conflict nor a resident of territory controlled by a Party to the conflict;
(e) is not a member of the armed forces of a Party to the conflict; and
(f) has not been sent by a State which is not a Party to the conflict on official duty as a member of its armed forces.

Has anybody ever asked the question why NATO was not disbanded after the Cold War ended? Or is it just too dumb a question (U.S. does not relinquish power).

The end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact in 1991 removed the de facto main adversary of NATO. This caused a strategic re-evaluation of NATO's purpose, nature and tasks. In practice this ended up entailing a gradual (and still ongoing) expansion of NATO to Eastern Europe, as well as the extension of its activities to areas that had not formerly been NATO concerns....

Arrow Warriors


Made for BBC1, winner of Best Drama Serial Bafta and starring (Lt Neil Loughrey) Damian Lewis,Pte Alan James/ ( Matthew Macfadyen) and Lt John Feeley (Ioan Gruffudd) , Warriors traces the lives of young soldiers on a peacekeeping mission in Bosnia. On returning home, they find it impossible to readjust to civilian life in the UK.


During Europe's most bloody conflict for 50 years, a Battalion of the British Army, never defeated in battle, are forced to stand and watch the destruction of innocent communities, their hands tied by a UN mandate forbidding direct intervention. Based on extensive research into real events but with a cast of fictional characters, Warriors tells the story of Central Bosnia in the winter of 1992-93. British soldiers, trained for combat and equipped with Warrior armoured vehicles, are employed by the UN to escort aid into an enclave cut off by the Bosnian Serb advance.


The soldiers arrive full of confidence, certain that the experience will not touch them. Warriors is the story of how they become involved, physically and emotionally - and how they end up risking their lives in someone else's war. It is a film about the changing face of soldiering and about the perils of attempting to keep the peace in an unsafe world...

Arrow FV510 Warrior

The Warrior tracked vehicle family is a series of British armoured vehicles, originally developed to replace the older FV430 series of armoured vehicles. The Warrior started life as the MCV-80 project that was first broached in the 1970s, GKN Sankey/Defence winning the production contract in 1980. GKN Defence was subsequently purchased by BAE Systems (via Alvis plc). A total of 789 FV510 and variants were manufactured for the British Army, and 254 of a modified version (Desert Warrior) were produced for the Kuwaiti Army.

United Nations duties in Bosnia with the UNPROFOR..


Operation Telic (2003 invasion of Iraq)
Operation Herrick (Afghanistan with ISAF)

The protection against small arms, missiles, rocket-propelled grenades and anti-tank mines was shown during the UN operations in Bosnia. Two Warriors were destroyed during the First Gulf War, with nine soldiers killed, in a friendly fire incident when hit by an AGM-65 Maverick launched in error by an American A-10 Thunderbolt II.

As of 17 November 2008, 22 soldiers had been killed while travelling in Warrior IFVs in Afghanistan or Iraq...

Diarrhea (from the Greek διάρροια meaning "flowing through"poisoned in the desert, also spelled diarrhoea, is the condition of having three or more loose or liquid bowel movements per day. It is a common cause of death in developing countries and the second most common cause of infant deaths worldwide. The loss of fluids through diarrhea can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. In 2009 diarrhea was estimated to have caused 1.1 million deaths in people aged 5 and over and 1.5 million deaths in children under the age of 5. Oral rehydration salts and zinc tablets are the treatment of choice and have been estimated to have saved 50 million children in the past 25 years...

Arrow Depleted Uranium

Depleted uranium (DU; also referred to in the past as Q-metal, depletalloy, or D-38) is uranium with a lower content of the fissile isotope U-235 than natural uranium (natural uranium is about 99.27% uranium-238 (U-238), 0.72% U-235, and 0.0055% U-234). Uses of DU take advantage of its very high density of 19.1 g/cm3 (68.4% denser than lead). Civilian uses include counterweights in aircraft, radiation shielding in medical radiation therapy and industrial radiography equipment, and containers used to transport radioactive materials. Military uses include defensive armor plating and armor-piercing projectiles.


Most depleted uranium arises as a byproduct of the production of enriched uranium for use in nuclear reactors and in the manufacture of nuclear weapons. Enrichment processes generate from the uranium feed a small fraction of uranium with a higher-than-natural concentration of lower-mass uranium isotopes (in particular U-235, which is the uranium isotope supporting the fission chain reaction) with the bulk of the feed ending up as depleted uranium, in some cases with mass fractions of U-235 and U-234 less than a third of those in natural uranium. U-238 has a much longer halflife than the lighter isotopes, and DU therefore emits less alpha radiation than the same mass of natural uranium: the US Defense Department states DU used in US munitions has 60% the radioactivity of natural uranium


Approximate area and major clashes in which DU bullets and rounds were used in the Gulf War...


Increased rates of immune system disorders and other wide-ranging symptoms, including chronic pain, fatigue and memory loss, have been reported in over one quarter of combat veterans of the 1991 Gulf War. Combustion products from depleted uranium munitions are being considered as one of the potential causes by the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses, as DU was used in 30 mm and smaller caliber machine-gun bullets on a large scale for the first time in the Gulf War. Veterans of the conflicts in the Persian Gulf, Bosnia and Kosovo have been found to have up to 14 times the usual level of chromosome abnormalities in their genes. Serum-soluble genotoxic teratogens produce congenital disorders, and in white blood cells causes immune system damage...

Sites in Kosovo and southern Central Serbia where NATO aviation used depleted uranium during the 1999 Kosovo War...


In 2001, doctors at the Serb-run hospital in Kosovska Mitrovica say the number of patients suffering from malignant diseases has increased by 200% since 1998. In the same year, the World Health Organization reported that data from Kosovo was inconclusive and called for further studies.


A 2003 study by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina stated that low levels of contaminate were found in drinking water and air particulate at DU penetrator impact points. The levels were stated as not a cause for alarm. Yet, Pekka Haavisto, chairman of the UNEP DU projects stated, "The findings of this study stress again the importance of appropriate clean-up and civil protection measures in a post-conflict situation."

A kinetic energy penetrator (also known as a KE weapon) is a type of ammunition which, like a bullet, does not contain explosives and uses kinetic energy to penetrate the target.

Armour-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot...


The modern KE weapon maximizes KE and minimizes the area over which it is delivered by: being fired with a very high muzzle velocity concentrating the force in a small impact area while still retaining a relatively large mass maximizing the mass of whatever (albeit small) volume is occupied by the projectile—that is, using the densest metals practical, which is one of the reasons depleted uranium is often used...


This has led to the current designs which resemble a long metal arrow.

Question Why Is NATO Selling Arms to Dictatorship's

On December 29, the White House announced that it was sending nearly $30 billion worth of F-15 fighter jets to Saudi Arabia, part of a $60 billion package—the largest arms deal in history. President Obama has come a long way since his 2008 declaration that “nothing is more important than us no longer borrowing $700 billion or more from China and sending it to Saudi Arabia.” Apparently it was the borrowing part that really irked him—not the arming of a gender-apartheid, theocratic dictatorship.


The justification for the arms sale is simple. The deal will provide at least 50,000 jobs to Americans—good PR at a time of great economic distress. More importantly, it is intended to counter the very real threat of Iran, a regional menace that has brutally repressed its own people and sponsored terrorism worldwide. But arming one theocratic dictator to stop another is not only bad policy, it is profoundly immoral.

Despot Deals: UK openly selling arms to dictators...

White House announces arms sale to Saudi Arabia...



WASHINGTON, Dec. 29 (Xinhua) -- The White House announced on Thursday a major arms sale deal to Saudi Arabia worth around 29.4 billion dollars.

"The United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have signed a government-to-government agreement under the Foreign Military Sales program to provide advanced F-15SA combat aircraft to the Royal Saudi Air Force," White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Joshua Earnest said in a statement.

The agreement includes production of 84 new aircraft and the modernization of 70 existing aircraft, as well as munitions, spare parts, training, maintenance and logistics, according to the statement.

"This agreement reinforces the strong and enduring relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia, and demonstrates the U. S. commitment to a strong Saudi defense capability as a key component to regional security," it said.

The deal was part of an arms sale package the Obama administration announced more than a year ago. In October 2010, the White House said it planned to sell 60 billion dollars of military equipment to Saudi Arabia over 15 to 20 years, which would be the single largest military sale in U.S. history.

The oil-rich Arab leaders have a growing influence over the western media.

A good chunk of AOL Time Warner is owned by Prince Alwaleed Ibn Talal the Saudi billionaire. It is well known that Prince AlWaleed is a front for the Saudi royal family. All of the oil money that is swindled from Aramco the Saudi oil company is "invested" by Prince Al Waleed and his company.

The Saudis and other oil-rich Arabs are busy buying influence over what Westerners hear about Islam.

Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud, a member of the Saudi Royal Family, is an international investor currently ranked among the ten richest persons in the world.

He is known in the USA for a $10 million check he offered to New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani in October 2001 for the Twin Towers Fund. Mayor Giuliani returned the gift when he learned that the prince had called for the United States to "re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance toward the Palestinian cause."

Prince Talal is also creating a TV channel, Al-Resalah, to target American Muslims. He already broadcasts in Saudi Arabia. In 2005, Bin Talal bought 5.46% of voting shares in News Corp, the parent of Fox News.

Al-Resalah (Arabic: قناة الرسالة‎; The Message) is an Arabic language satellite television channel "to present true Islam".

It is funded by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, recorded in all over the United Arab Emirates to Morocco and Kuwait, and broadcast from Cairo. Al-Resalah has slots on the Arabsat and Nilesat satellites, serving primarily the Middle East, but North Africa and Europe as well.


In December 2005 he boasted to Middle East Online about his ability to change what viewers see on Fox News. Covering the riots in France that fall, Fox ran a banner saying: "Muslim riots." Bin Talal was not happy. "I picked up the phone and called Murdoch [...] [and told him] these are not Muslim riots, these are riots out of poverty," he said. "Within 30 minutes, the title was changed from Muslim riots to civil riots."

Recent studies suggest Afghanistan may be home to massive rare earth deposits, worth over $1 trillion. The precious mineral resources have the potential to completely transform the nation's economy. But security concerns and the historic heritage's preservation pose many challenges to the Afghan government.

Exclamation NATO Review - India and NATO: size no problem

The last conference in India was held in New Delhi in the year 2002. This will be the second time that India is hosting the world conference of the free masons.



Fifty grand lodges and 500 masons from all over the world are expected to take part in this conference. Invitations to the conference have been sent to 140 grand lodges across the globe, which will be held across two days.

Dr Balaram Biswakumar, grand master, the grand Lodge of Ancient free and Accepted Masons (AF & AM) of India said, “We are looking forward to participation from the grand lodges of Paraguay, South Africa and Germany.”

The motive behind the conference will be to identify the role of Freemasonry in peacekeeping activities around the globe. Apart from the main address, there will be relevant sub-themes and associated with the geographies of the grand lodges. Masons will present papers related to the theme and the presentations will be held with discussions.

The latest Balkan wars were actually installed by NATO, hence I do not give any reckognition to their intervention because they agreed with Alija Izetbegovic, predisent of Bosnia at the time, to sacrifice nearly ten thousand men in Srebrenica in order to have a reason to interfeer.

Not only did they destroy the Yugoslav spirit and grace, but they also installed islamism into the ranks of the Bosnian army in the early 90s, by bringing in Syrian and Arabian moujahedeen into the ranks of the army. This was followed by the 'Islamic declaration' and there we go; an unstable Bosnia arose. I won't go further into the acceptance of Crotia into NATO and the independence of Kosovo, because those were key moves in putting a larger plan into motion.

With Tito's death, everything changed - to worse.

Arrow 66


The M72 LAW (Light Anti-Tank Weapon, also referred to as the Light Anti-Armor Weapon or LAW as well as LAWS Light Anti-Armor Weapons System) is a portable one-shot 66 mm unguided anti-tank weapon, designed in the United States by Paul V. Choate, Charles B. Weeks, and Frank A. Spinale et al. while with the Hesse-Eastern Division of Norris Thermadore, currently produced by Nammo Raufoss AS in Norway. United States production of the weapon began in 1963 and it terminated in 1983.

Lightbulb Crime Watch

The Browning Hi-Power is a single-action, 9 mm semi-automatic handgun. It is based on a design by American firearms inventor John Browning, and completed by Dieudonné Saive at Fabrique Nationale (FN) of Herstal, Belgium. Browning died in 1926, several years before the design was finalized. The Hi-Power is one of the most widely used military pistols of all time, having been used by the armed forces of over 50 countries...


Browning Hi-Power pistols were used during World War II by both Allied and Axis forces. After occupying Belgium in 1940, German forces took over the FN plant. German troops subsequently used the Hi-Power, having assigned it the designation Pistole 640(b) ("b" for belgisch, "Belgian"). Examples produced by FN in Belgium under German occupation bear German inspection and acceptance marks, or Waffenamts, such as WaA613. In German service, it was used mainly by Waffen-SS and Fallschirmjäger personnel...The pistol was popular with the British airborne forces as well as covert operations and commando groups such as the Special Operations Executive (SOE), the U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the nascent British Special Air Service (SAS) Regiment. Inglis Hi-Powers made for Commonwealth forces have the British designation 'Mk 1', or 'Mk 1*' and the manufacturer's details on the left of the slide. They were known in British and Commonwealth service as the 'Pistol No 2 Mk 1', or 'Pistol No 2 Mk 1*' where applicable. Serial numbers were 6 characters, the second being the letter 'T', e.g. 1T2345...Former Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi carried a gold-plated Hi-Power with his own face on the design of the grips which was waved around in the air by Libyan rebels after his death...The Beretta Cheetah has also been marketed by Browning under the name BDA 380...The Detective is a short-slide HP produced by FM. The Detective slide group was also available without the frame, and is interchangeable with other FM and FN Hi-Power P35s. The pistol and slide group have not been available for North American sales since the late 2000s, but can be found in resale outlets.


Soon after the killing some commentators identified the possibility of a Yugoslav connection...

At B G's first trial his defence barrister, Michael Mansfield QC, quoted from a National Criminal Intelligence Service report which stated that the Serbian warlord leader, Arkan, had ordered her assassination in retaliation for the NATO bombing of the Radio Television of Serbia headquarters on 23 April 1999, which had resulted in the deaths of several well-known Yugoslav TV presenters. Mansfield suggested that Dando's earlier presentation of an appeal for aid for Kosovar Albanian refugees may have attracted the attention of Bosnian-Serb hardliners. Dando's picture was on the cover of the Radio Times (edition 24 to 30 April 1999) in the week of her killing.

Jill Dando Death ITN Evening News 26 April 1999 ...

The former communist regime in Yugoslavia had a history of assassinations directed against its opponents. It has been claimed that between 1946 and 1991 the Yugoslav Secret Service (UDBA) had carried out at least 150 assassination attempts against people living outside Yugoslavia. The victims were mostly Croatian émigrés, although others were targeted. The attacks were usually carried out by small teams consisting of a trigger-man supported by a spotter and were always carefully planned. The attacks were often made as targets entered or left their homes since this was the point at which they were most vulnerable and where a case of mistaken identity was least likely...The last known UDBA hit in the UK took place on 20 October 1988 when Nikola Štedul, a 51-year-old Croatian émigré, was gunned down outside his home in Kirkcaldy.

Bob Woffinden, a journalist who specialises in miscarriages of justice has stated "Claims of responsibility" are made by groups such as the IRA or ETA. In 60 years, there has not once been a claim of responsibility for an assassination carried out by East European secret services." Woffinden advanced the view that a Yugoslav group was behind the Dando killing and in various newspaper articles he contested all the grounds on which the police had dismissed this possibility...Discredited links with Yugoslavia include the case in which a West Midlands petty criminal of Serbian descent was said to have boasted of the killing in a bar in Belgrade in September 2001. A jailed former cargo aircraft captain as well as two other witnesses stated they were present in the bar at the time of the alleged confession...Slavko Ćuruvija (a Serb journalist and critic of the then Jugoslav government) was shot in the head outside his Belgrade home just 5 days before the killing of Dando. In March 2012, his widow Branka Prpa claimed that both her late husband and Dando were ‘executed’ by a Serbian hitman in revenge attacks.

'Kosovo Crisis' DEC Appeal, Jill Dando, 1999, BBC...

Forensic study indicated that Dando had been shot by a bullet from a 9 mm calibre automatic pistol, with the gun pressed against her head at the moment of the shot. Richard Hughes, her next door neighbour, heard a surprised cry from Dando "like someone greeting a friend" but heard no gunshot. Hughes looked out of his front window and, while not realising what had happened, made the only certain sighting of the killer—a 6 foot (1.80 metre) tall white man aged around 40 years old, seen walking away from Dando's house...

Within six months, the murder investigation team had spoken to more than 2,500 people and taken more than 1,000 statements. With little progress after a year, the police concentrated their attention on B G, who lived about half a mile from Dando's house. He had a history of stalking women, sexual offending and other anti-social and attention-seeking behaviour...George was put under surveillance, arrested on 25 May and charged with Dando's murder on 28 May.

The late lovely Jill Dando presenting the BBC 1 Xmas news in 1990...

George was tried at the Old Bailey, convicted, and on 2 July 2001 he was sentenced to life imprisonment.Concern about this conviction was widespread on the basis that the case against George appeared thin...Dando's family and her fiancé Alan Farthing did not ask the police to reopen the investigation. George's family and supporters were jubilant at the outcome, claiming that there had never been any worthwhile evidence against him...

Lightbulb Spycatchers



Spycatcher: The Candid Autobiography of a Senior Intelligence Officer (also Spycatcher), is a book written by Peter Wright, former MI5 officer and Assistant Director, and co-author Paul Greengrass. It was published first in Australia. Its allegations proved scandalous on publication, but more so because the British Government attempted to ban it, ensuring its profit and notoriety...

Some sources report that the 3rd-century Chancellor (China) Zhuge Liang of the Kingdom of Shu in China invented a land mine type device. This claim was made by Jiao Yu in his Huolongjing Quanzhi (Fire-drake Manual in One Complete Volume), his preface written in 1412 AD (although the book was originally published in the mid 14th century), and that Zhuge had used not only "fire weapons" but land mines in the Battle of Hulugu Valley against the forces of Sima Yi and his son Sima Zhao of the Wei Kingdom..However, this claim is dubious, considering that gunpowder warfare did not exist in China until the advent of the flamethrower (Pen Huo Qi) in the 10th century, while the land mine was not seen in China until the late 13th century.Land mines continue to kill nearly 20,000 people every year, even decades after the ends of the conflicts for which they were placed...

In Funing county of Wenshan prefecture, Yunnan province, one to two people are still hurt every year by landmines, despite many mine clearance projects and warnings and fences set up around mine fields in recent years.Tianpeng village, 600 meters from the China-Vietnam border, was once known in China for its "87 villagers with only 78 legs." Only four of them are still living.The victims can get allowances of 360 yuan ($55) to 5,160 yuan each year, according to the provincial civil affairs bureau. "That is too little for these special groups," said Li Liansu from the civil affairs bureau of Funing county."Despite our efforts in helping them get artificial limbs and with their daily life, we still need to do much more," Li said.

There are 50 states in the United States of America. The TV show Hawaii Five-O and its reimagined version, Hawaii Five-0, are so called because Hawaii is the last (50th) of the states to officially become a state..The fifth magic number in nuclear physics.The atomic number of tin.

The Browning Hi-Power is a single-action, 9 mm semi-automatic handgun. It is based on a design by American firearms inventor John Browning, and completed by Dieudonné Saive at Fabrique Nationale (FN) of Herstal, Belgium. Browning died in 1926, several years before the design was finalized. The Hi-Power is one of the most widely used military pistols of all time, having been used by the armed forces of over 50 countries...

Pistol Shooting Browning Hi-Power - YouTube

Browning Hi-Power pistols were used during World War II by both Allied and Axis forces. After occupying Belgium in 1940, German forces took over the FN plant. German troops subsequently used the Hi-Power, having assigned it the designation Pistole 640(b) ("b" for belgisch, "Belgian"). Examples produced by FN in Belgium under German occupation bear German inspection and acceptance marks, or Waffenamts, such as WaA613. In German service, it was used mainly by Waffen-SS and Fallschirmjäger personnel...The pistol was popular with the British airborne forces as well as covert operations and commando groups such as the Special Operations Executive (SOE), the U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the nascent British Special Air Service (SAS) Regiment. Inglis Hi-Powers made for Commonwealth forces have the British designation 'Mk 1', or 'Mk 1*' and the manufacturer's details on the left of the slide. They were known in British and Commonwealth service as the 'Pistol No 2 Mk 1', or 'Pistol No 2 Mk 1*' where applicable. Serial numbers were 6 characters, the second being the letter 'T', e.g. 1T2345...Former Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi carried a gold-plated Hi-Power with his own face on the design of the grips which was waved around in the air by Libyan rebels after his death...The Beretta Cheetah has also been marketed by Browning under the name BDA 380...The Detective is a short-slide HP produced by FM. The Detective slide group was also available without the frame, and is interchangeable with other FM and FN Hi-Power P35s. The pistol and slide group have not been available for North American sales since the late 2000s, but can be found in resale outlets.

Soon after the killing some commentators identified the possibility of a Yugoslav connection...

At B G's first trial his defence barrister, Michael Mansfield QC, quoted from a National Criminal Intelligence Service report which stated that the Serbian warlord leader, Arkan, had ordered her assassination in retaliation for the NATO bombing of the Radio Television of Serbia headquarters on 23 April 1999, which had resulted in the deaths of several well-known Yugoslav TV presenters. Mansfield suggested that Dando's earlier presentation of an appeal for aid for Kosovar Albanian refugees may have attracted the attention of Bosnian-Serb hardliners. Dando's picture was on the cover of the Radio Times (edition 24 to 30 April 1999) in the week of her killing.

The former communist regime in Yugoslavia had a history of assassinations directed against its opponents. It has been claimed that between 1946 and 1991 the Yugoslav Secret Service (UDBA) had carried out at least 150 assassination attempts against people living outside Yugoslavia. The victims were mostly Croatian émigrés, although others were targeted. The attacks were usually carried out by small teams consisting of a trigger-man supported by a spotter and were always carefully planned. The attacks were often made as targets entered or left their homes since this was the point at which they were most vulnerable and where a case of mistaken identity was least likely...The last known UDBA hit in the UK took place on 20 October 1988 when Nikola Štedul, a 51-year-old Croatian émigré, was gunned down outside his home in Kirkcaldy.

Bob Woffinden, a journalist who specialises in miscarriages of justice has stated "Claims of responsibility" are made by groups such as the IRA or ETA. In 60 years, there has not once been a claim of responsibility for an assassination carried out by East European secret services." Woffinden advanced the view that a Yugoslav group was behind the Dando killing and in various newspaper articles he contested all the grounds on which the police had dismissed this possibility...Discredited links with Yugoslavia include the case in which a West Midlands petty criminal of Serbian descent was said to have boasted of the killing in a bar in Belgrade in September 2001. A jailed former cargo aircraft captain as well as two other witnesses stated they were present in the bar at the time of the alleged confession...Slavko Ćuruvija (a Serb journalist and critic of the then Jugoslav government) was shot in the head outside his Belgrade home just 5 days before the killing of Dando. In March 2012, his widow Branka Prpa claimed that both her late husband and Dando were ‘executed’ by a Serbian hitman in revenge attacks.

Forensic study indicated that Dando had been shot by a bullet from a 9 mm calibre automatic pistol, with the gun pressed against her head at the moment of the shot. Richard Hughes, her next door neighbour, heard a surprised cry from Dando "like someone greeting a friend" but heard no gunshot. Hughes looked out of his front window and, while not realising what had happened, made the only certain sighting of the killer—a 6 foot (1.80 metre) tall white man aged around 40 years old, seen walking away from Dando's house...

Within six months, the murder investigation team had spoken to more than 2,500 people and taken more than 1,000 statements. With little progress after a year, the police concentrated their attention on B G, who lived about half a mile from Dando's house. He had a history of stalking women, sexual offending and other anti-social and attention-seeking behaviour...George was put under surveillance, arrested on 25 May and charged with Dando's murder on 28 May.

George was tried at the Old Bailey, convicted, and on 2 July 2001 he was sentenced to life imprisonment.Concern about this conviction was widespread on the basis that the case against George appeared thin...Dando's family and her fiancé Alan Farthing did not ask the police to reopen the investigation. George's family and supporters were jubilant at the outcome, claiming that there had never been any worthwhile evidence against him...
