Mr. Minister,
The old tactics of Sultan to reward certain albanian ter-

Of their terrorist acts, six villages in Podgorje are most severly af- flicted, Ljubižda, Koriša, Mušutište, Dvorane, Popovlavle and Movlalje. in those villages, land is mostly owned by Serbs, or at least Serbs till their land, so the mountains’ albanians, taking advantage of the absolute anarchy in that area intend to drive our population away and seize the fertile soil in the plains.
