The President of the Republic Ilir Meta, in an interview with journalist Cim Peka commented on the resignation of Visho Ajazi Lika as the Secret Service head, SHISH. Asked if the President had decreed the appointment of the new director of SHISH, Meta said there was no urgency for his decree.
"The resignation of Ajazi was unexpected. It is in my nature as always, at the helm of institutions, I have respected the principle of institutional cooperation; even more so in the concrete case, which is about an institution of particular importance. I am convinced that continuity is always positive. A week ago I guaranteed Mr. Ajazi that he would have my full support to continue his duty in the fight against organized crime. He thanked me for the trust and this communication was simply to confirm the continuity. I gave a guarantee and support, but I cannot hold anyone unwillingly in his functions,” the President said.
Asked about whether he will decree the new name proposed by PM Rama as the SHISH chairman, the President stated he is “in no hurry and I will consider it calmly”.
