The former-Minister of Interior, Sajmir Tahiri convened a press conference on Tuesday claiming his complete innocence in relation to the charges for ties with international drugs trafficking. He presented to the journalists a document obtained by him in Catania's Prosecution which proves that no penal proceeding is underway or has ever been conducted on his person.
"I could not care less about the political debate or the public debate related to this issue. On the other side I am more than ready to pay any price for the truth. Despite the fact that I am nothing more than a common citizen it took me only one day to obtain this document from Catania prosecution. It proves that the citizen Sajmir Bashkim Tahiri has never been subject of inquiry by this prosecution. This means that Catania's prosecution has never tied my name with this inquiry. On view of these facts how it is possible for the Serious Crimes Prosecution in Albania to ask for my arrest within only 48 hours through publicly presented documents?," stated Tahiri.
Referring to the political attempt to defame his name he expressed the readiness to cope with this campaign.
