Three representatives of the Democratic Party, who published the audio recording against the Interior minister’s brother, have testified yesterday in front of the prosecution. After the testimony, each one of them has appeared in front of the cameras accusing the prosecution of being at the service of the government. Democrat MP, Enkelejd Alibeaj said that he has asked to be the representative of the Albanian “victims”, who, according to him, are being exposed to the traffic of drugs and that this process is being held to ransom by PM Edi Rama and Interior minister, Fatmir Xhafaj. Meanwhile, the other democrat MP, Ervin Salianji went even further, by saying that the DP has another audio-recording, which it will soon make public. According to him, this recording shows the connections that Agron Xhafa has with the traffic of drugs. On the other hand, the DP’s legal counselor, Gazmend Bardhi, has requested the prosecution to lead proper investigations. “Instead of summoning the Interior minister for his brother’s activity, the prosecution summons us, who denounce this affair. The prosecution is yet to summon for questioning the PM who said that the voice in the audio material does not belong to Agron Xhafaj and who does not offer any details on the examination of the material”, he accused.
Meanwhile, the Albanian opposition continues to demand the resignation of the Interior minister, Fatmir Xhafaj, claiming that his brother is involved in the traffic of drugs. This request has caused a debate yesterday in parliamentary committees, where democrat MPs have alluded that the government’s connections with the traffic of drugs are having an impact on the economy through the effects on the depreciation of the euro. But, according to the majority MPs, the fluctuations of the euro are normal.
