The Socialist Movement for Integration (SMI) MP, Kejdi Mehmetaj accused Prime Minister Edi Rama for hiding Sajmir Tahiri’s ties with drugs trafficking.
“Premier Rama, someone that makes a comment on everything, that organizes public trials for simple employees only because their figure does not coincide with aesthetic tastes, has not said a single word about the drug trafficker Moisi Habilaj and his cousin, the former-Minister of Interior Sajmir Tahiri. The Italian inquirers and the media have largely spoken about the huge quantity of drugs produced and smuggled from Albania to Italy. They have also unveiled the traffickers’ ties with the State police, the Minister of Interior and Albanian Prime Minister,” said Mehmetaj.
In conclusion the SMI MP, Mehmetaj quoted the Italian media as a clear proof of Habilaj’s ties with his cousin, the former Minister of Interior Sajmir Tahiri.
“Moisi Habilaj tells to the owner of a gas station in Lentini commune that ‘If you come to Albania you will see that police is corrupted, and sometimes even the chief of police help loading the cannabis bags. In one of these meetings he speaks about his cousin involved in politics by saying ‘I have to give a sum of EUR 30.000 to Sajmir’,” the Italian media reported.
“The Prime Minister has fallen! Let him resign as soon as possible, otherwise it will be the people that will bring him down of that chair which he occupies thanks to drugs and crime,” stated Mehmetaj.
