UDBa COLD CASE - BLAGOJA SAMBEVSKI


















































40 years since the suspicious death or murder of Macedonian anti-communist and anti-Yugoslav dissident in Munich, Germany. Was he killed by UDBa, Yugoslav intelligence?

UDBa COLD CASE ? - BLAGOJA SAMBEVSKI
by Sasha Uzunov

In 1974 a Macedonian anti-Communist dissident Blagoja Sambevski, an opponent of Tito's Yugoslavia and Secretary of the emigre organisation DOOM (Movement for the Liberation and Unification of Macedonia), was found dead at the hotel he was working at as a night porter in Munich, West Germany. His head and body had been covered in blood with signs of blunt force trauma wounds to his skull...

It is speculated that Sambevski, assuming he had been murdered by Yugoslav intelligence (UDBa), had known his killer or killers; that the murder had been made to look messy and unprofessional in order not to arouse Bavarian State Police (German police force) suspicion, instead make it appear as a violent street crime.


Perhaps the killer or killers were also "pretending" to be dissidents or had even inflitrated DOOM and had gained the trust of Sambevski before killing him...




DEATH THREATS?


According to Makedonska Nacija (Macedonian Nation), DOOM's official newspaper, some threatening letters that were sent  Sambevski weeks  before his suspected murder by Yugoslav Intelligence (UDBa) 



It might be a crazy idea--and I'm not a forensics expert--but I was wondering is it possible to take a DNA sample from saliva licked on postage stamps 40 years ago? Probably not .

I suppose if the Bavarian State Police re-open the case, and if they have kept the evidence, the clothing etc, they could probably run DNA testing, if possible.



Sambevski, was found dead by a fellow staff member on the nightshift of July 31 / August 1, 1974,  a day before the Ilinden Uprising commemoration (2 August) - Macedonian national day- fairly symbolic gesture if you wanted to send a political message.


PROVOKATSIYA

Provokatsiya is a Soviet intelligence tecnhique, first invented by the Tsarist Russian secret police and later perfected by the Soviet Cheka/OGPU/KGB and later taught to Yugoslav intelligence (OZNA/UDBa/SDB and Miltary counter-intelligence KOS).

Yugoslav Communist ruler Josip Broz Tito (code name WALTER) spent the 1920s living in the Soviet Union and survived the various Stalinist purges by toeing the official party line.

Provokatsiya or False Flag Operations involves creating "false opposition groups" and then drawing in genuine dissidents before destroying them...One successful action from the 1920s was the TRUST Operations, which fooled Russian monarchist opponents.

See link for a detailed history by Dr John Schindler:

The TRUST OPERATIONS: Menzhinsky's success


The Cheka became the OGPU in 1922 with Vyacheslav Menzhinsky  as its successful Director in conducting the TRUST Operations. see link 


THE 1940 TROTSKY ASSASSINATION SIMILIAR TO 1974 SAMBEVSKI "DEATH?" 

Leon Trotsky, was one of the leaders of the Russian Revolution of 1917 but fell foul of political rival Josef Stalin and was forced into exile. In 1940 Soviet intelligence hatched an evil plan to finally "dispose" of Trotsky, living in Mexico.

Soviet Intelligence infiltrated a Spanish Communist by the name of Ramon Mercader who posed as a Canadian with the mispelt name of Frank Jacson [Jackson] and he was able to befriend Trotsky over a period of time until he attacked him with an ice pick and bludgeon Trostsky over the head who died later in hospital.


In 1974 a Macedonian anti-Communist dissident Blagoja Sambevski, an opponent of Tito's Yugoslavia and Secretary of DOOM (Movement for the Liberation and Unification of Macedonia), was found dead at the hotel he was working at as a night porter in Munich, West Germany. His head and body had been covered in blood with signs of blunt force trauma wounds to his skull...

It is speculated that Sambevski, assuming he had been murdered by Yugoslav intelligence (UDBa), had known his killer or killers; that the murder had been made to look messy and unprofessional in order not to arouse Bavarian State Police (German police force) suspicion, instead make it appear as a violent street crime.

Perhaps the killer or killers were also "pretending" to be dissidents or had even infiltrated DOOM and had gained the trust of Sambevski before killing him...

Mercader was captured and spent many years in jail before being released and awarded a "Hero of the Soviet Union" medal. Sambevski's killer or killers are still officially unknown and have never been brought to justice.

We can only speculate but the killer or killers of Sambevski would have enjoined state honours, medals, awards and privileges from SFR Yugoslavia and probably is or are still being protected by the authorities of the Republic of Macedonia, one the successor states of Yugoslavia and ironically what Sambevski was responsible for.

So Sambevski's death or murder did not stop Yugoslavia from falling apart internally.
In 1977 - DOOM leader Dragan Bogdanovski was alleged to have been kidnapped by UDBa whilst in Paris and smuggled back to the Socialist Republic of Macedonia, then a part of SFR Yugoslavia to face trial for "anti-Yugoslav" activities, for which he was given over 10 years jail until released to found in 1990 one of the major political parties operating now in the independent Republic of Macedonia, VMRO-DPMNE.


Bogdanovski's opponents have accused him of being a "double-agent" for UDBa, with documents purporting to show his activities. But some have cast doubt on the authenticity of these documents produced during the Lustration Commission, established in post-communist Macedonia to discover who the informers were. 

The irony of all of this is no politician or  UDBa senior commander or operative has ever been revealed nor who gave the orders to kill Sambevski and who the hit man or men was/were.

Hi Sasha,
i always wanted to thank you for your brave website
i can see that you don't get nearly enough attention for what you are trying to expose,however that does not come as a surprise considering the Australian govts complicity in UDBA crimes.My Father was also on the UDBA hitlist which was released in the 90s.I hope your patience continues and one day the Croatian six or at least the surviving members families will get an apology but I'm not holding my breath.Maybe there is such a thing as Karma.

Thanks
Mate
