The Chairman of the Democratic Party Lulzim Basha has condemned and denounced what he considered to be a smearing campaign carried out by Edi Rama and media under his control targeting the Head of the EU Affairs Commission Chairman at the Bundestag, Gunther Krichbaum.
In a statement at the Blue Headquarters, Basha named the names of Edi Rama, Sajmir Tahiri and Mayor Veliaj,as the masterminds of the campaign, describing it as nauseous.
The ugliest aspect of this campaign carried out during the last three days in the media is that it has been financed by dirty money coming from drugs, government-related corruption, directly tied to Rama, Tahiri and Veliaj.
"He (Krichbaum) is one of the most respected political figures in Germany and Europe and he is a man who loves and supports Albania but who wants to see it as a country where the rule of law and democracy prevail. That is why he has explicitly stated his criticism. His remarks have been made known to Rama by other EU governments as well as by the USA, but instead of reflecting on them, Rama has decided to launch a smear campaign against the chairman of EU related Affairs at the Bundestag", said Basha.
