The democrats are forced to leave their country because of the insecure life
The insecure situation in our country made many
democrats leave their country, for with their activity they not only didn’t
find support in the state but even violence. One of them is Nexhmedin Riza Çoçja, born in Shkodra on
The inquisitors of the 21st century
The Albanian politics finds difficulty on walking
toward emancipation. The former Organizing Secretary of the Leading Committee
of the SP, Petro Koçi meant this when he declared
that although the question of his discharge was presented to the justice, by
a group of supporters, convinced that the leadership of the Party has broken
the law, breaking the status, yet he has no complaint and although he will
leave the SP, he shall still be a socialist. This shows that Petro Koçi is in on evil deeds, and with the money gathered as
well as all the other stealers of this state of stealers, can still live and
help to further the life of this state of dictatorship. The political
discrimination and the violence toward the opponents of communism, has caused
the socialists to be united. The communists have taken advantage of the
corruption, the stolen votes the inability of the opposition to pull down the
power of anarchy even when the human liberties and rights have been broken
seriously. Hundreds of activists of the opposition have been killed,
thousands have been tortured and imprisoned, many others have felt forced to
leave their country. This was the case of the well known
democrat Fiqiret Gavoçi.
In 1981 he was condemned with 10 years of political imprisonment, as he had
tried to flee abroad, but because of the amnesty, and for his fortune the
death of the dictator Enver Hoxha,
he suffered the half of the condemnation. With the political pluralism in
Albania, Fiqiret Gavoçi
joined those who wanted a free and democratic Albania. He participated in
protests, on January 14, 1990, when the bust of Stalin was pulled down in Shkodra, on December 13, 1990, when was the turn of the
bust of Enver Hoxha, on
April 2, 1991, when the democratic people of Shkodra
protested against the stolen votes and Ramiz Alia
killed four people and wounded 163 others. He gave as much as he could, as a
man with a large vision. These actions made of him a victim of the
communists, who put him on target. On
The social communists are inquisitors that can be easily compared with the period when Giordano Bruno, Galileo Galilei etc., were burned up, just because they defended their ideas, proving scientifically the natural phenomenon. In a few words the social communists, although in the 21st century, are doing the same with the democrats, as it is the case of Fiqiret Gavoçi and his family, being so a serious accusation. The former Prime Minister Ilir Meta, the socialist leader Fatos Nano, Skender Gjinushi or Neritan Ceka, for example are inquisitors, aren’t they? The daily press have mentioned them several times, accused for political discrimination and medieval violence toward the democrats.
We think and will keep on affirming that this kind of politics has lost its’ right to govern. The state that kills its’ citizens, just because they are political opponents, isn’t a state but inquisitor.
The Kosovars between the dreamed liberty and the threatened life
Although Kosovo realized the dream of liberty (without the barbaric Serbs), after 1999, this also thanks to the help of Europe and USA, today, instead of enjoying the liberty they missed for a long time, they are forced to watch their “mined” ground. Yet there is a difference, that after 1999 it is not all about fighting mines, but human mines, built up by the barbaric Serbs for many years, to be used just in these days that should had been happy and not sad, as they are all over Kosovo. Unfortunately these sad days are brought by those who have been claimed as the liberators of Kosovo, speaking in the name of the KLA. The KFOR is also trying to arrest those criminals amongst the KLA, who might be working for “everyone”, but not for Kosovo and its independence. The cases of threats, murders and massacres are so many, but they all have a name, that of “KLA”, as a revenge against all those who didn’t join the army for the liberation of Kosovo, or those accused as collaborators of the Serbs. To show, in some way, what is being prepared against the Kosovars, I’ll tell about a family from the village of Lubizhdë. I came to know this just occasionally, when I visited Prizren and its’ surroundings. I went there to prepare something for the journal “Shqipëria Etnike”, to give an image of the life and not the “death” that was being “sowed”. As soon as I visited Lubizhdë of Prizren, I met rubble and ash, and I thought it was a home destroyed by the war and left untouched now, without any particular story. When the inhabitants coming with me noticed that I was looking at it with some attention, they told me this was the house of the family Çulaj, now completely destroyed. Unfortunately this didn’t come from the Serbs, but the Albanians of Kosovo. The particularity of this family was that the Kosovar man had had a woman of color as his wife. This couple had two children, Eduart Çulaj and Jetmira Çulaj. The difficult life of this family started since the first appearance of KLA and the colored people supported in someway the Serb invader. The two young people of the family Çulaj, Eduart and Jetmira, were looked with doubt as coming from a colored mother. The KLA had the doubts that as they were not joining the KLA, were collaborators of Serbs, this because their mother was a colored woman. For this reason, (without fundamentals), according to the inhabitants of Lubizhdë, the KLA had visited this family several times by night, during the 1999, scaring them, pushing down the doors and asking them to show where they had hided the Serb soldiers and the staff used to spy, threatening to kill them all. They never found something like that, but the inspections and the physical mistreats went for a long time on, until the day the younger of the family Çulaj, Eduart and Jetmira decided to leave their home, Lubishda, Prizren and Kosovo, as feared for their life. They left home only their two parents who were mistreated by the KLA in the first visit they were found without their children. The KLA wanted them to tell where the two younger had gone, and they doubted that Eduart and Jetmira had joined the Serb army. These mistreatments occurred not only during the war, but after the liberation too. One night, some members of the KLA, after broke the door entering their home, broke and destroyed everything, mistreated the colored woman and took with them the husband in the night, telling her that her husband was a ransom until the return of the two children, accused as collaborators of the Serbs. If they were not back to be condemned as traitors she had no reason to wait for her husband… a few times later there came the news that Eduard and Jetmira’s father had died because of the tortures and massacres of the KLA. Later they had put the woman out and had burned up the house, leaving it in these conditions, as a symbol of the evil that still moves around. The inhabitants that told this story asked me not to mention them by names as they were afraid… However the inhabitants of Kosovo, as well as we as journalists believe that these crimes do not come from the KLA, but from its’ incriminated segments, obviously guided by the Serbs. Unfortunately they’re not stopped yet by the KFOR. The focus of this article was obviously the family that is inexistent now, but this tragedy should make sensible the Kosovar opinion and the international one, to stop this evil without end…
Kosovo, model of crimes on people
There are needed decades to understand that incomparable tragedy the Kosovar people suffered since 1981 now. The most touched was obviously the period of war. Its’ consequences are still visible and it will be difficult, for the international justice to solve them. These last days we were in charge from the journal, in the commune of Deçan. Everything there is destroyed and we wrote down many names of victims of the Serb terror and war, and also victims of the KLA. Many elderly had lost their parents and lived in vary bad conditions and anxiety. There we met an old man who had lost his leg by the tortures of the Serb beast during the wartime. His name is Haki Zyberi and he lived in a tent, although he had been an activist of the DLK and had fought for a free Kosovo. He had to be cured at home, to an Albanian doctor at the time he had his leg cut. His son Skender Zyberi, as many other young people, had suffered terror and because of this had left their country to go somewhere in the West, to safe his life, first of all threatened by the Serbs and later on by the KLA too. These paradoxes happen only to the Albanian community in Kosovo. During wartime, Skender Zyberi was called to join the Kosovo’s Liberation Army, but he didn’t want blood and had refused to fight, so he had left. Although he was tortured by the Serbs several times, he was also declared “traitor” by the KLA, accused to have collaborated with the Serbs. For this he was wanted to be fired as soon as they could catch him. There are many cases like this. Later on the DTK asked Skender to go and fight in Macedonia. His father Haki Zyberi suffered violence and pressures, in order to tell where his son was. The DTK using the same structures and methods of KLA is responsible for many evil deeds, so the people o Kosovo has been suffering a great terror, incomparable to any other place in the world.
In the other editions of this journal we’ll be bringing other cases of crimes on people.
The shadows of dictatorship
In the postcommunist Albania, the life of the democrats is menaced, just like during Enver Hoxha’s times. The shadows of dictatorship follow those who aspire for a free Albania. The wellknown democrat Artor Shtyllaku, has given a great contribution, since 1990. As a member of the Anticommunist Political Association “13 Dhjetori 1990”, has participated in many anticommunist activities. His life was several times menaced, after the uzurpation of the democratic state, in spring 1997. He was violated, tortured, shot and his house was robbed by forces of the security of state. Diana Lazri, Tonin Gjoni, Franko Kasneci, Bep Pali have also suffered rubber sticks, tortures and menaces of death. The mother of Artor Shtyllaku was wounded by the communists. In the beginning of 2000, at the house of Bep Pali there was put explosive stuff, by certain groups of the police, of course, as the police is still silent.
After 1997, the democrats are being violated and their life is menaced. Many have been shot, imprisoned for political motives and many others are leaving Albania, just like those mentioned in this article, in order to save their life. When is it going to finish?!
