Quotes

Eric Icsel , President of Escalera International Co. , added: "Albanian Oil Rafinery is a well-established company with contacts throughout the Albanian affiliates and the oil and gas industry in Albania , making them an ideal partner for this JV. Most of Eastern Europe has a single supply of natural gas which has proven tenuous at times in recent years. Being on the leading edge of developing additional supply for the area is certainly an exciting opportunity. Both parties hope to complete due diligence early in the third quarter of this year and move forward with the JV."

"I thought this was a bad idea, and I told him so,” Feith said of his conversation with Dell. “I thought this would strengthen the impression of impunity and not help our efforts to combat corruption.” In the end, Dell’s proposal to remove Limaj from Kosovo was never enacted. The transport minister was later arrested, and he has faced a series of war crimes and corruption charges, but has yet to be convicted of any offences."
