Unparalleled crimes in the little Albania
There is no other place in the world where you can find facts as tragic as in Albania. Condemnation falls on all those who have anticommunist ideals and act as such. In the little Albania more than 25 400 people have been condemned of over 20 years of prison, during the dictatorship system of Enver Hoxha, without including the interned and those deprived of the most basic rights and frees. The communist system has fired out 153 only amongst priests, after 1967. The strangest thing is that the criminals were not condemned even after 1990, when the democracy came in Albania, until 1996, when the Democratic Party was forced to give up the power under the pressure of guns, murders and gangs. Obviously the Democratic Party had no previous experience, coming after a hard dictatorship, while the social-communists still on power, managing the anarchy and revenge, had the experience of the economic power. Many are the dead, violated, condemned, as victims of this government. 43 000 innocent people have been killed in Albania since 1997 on. The discriminating, revenging politics stroke the successors of the former political dissidents of Enver Hoxhas times. This was the same for the anticommunist Luan Pjetėr Shkreli from Shkodra, who was sought after to be eliminated by the groups of the security of state. A few years ago, the police shot on Senahi Gjeka, along with his wife and children, in their bed, and despite the protests of the anticommunist Association 2 Prilli 1991, the local authorities of Shkodra and Malėsi e Madhe, forcing to find out the authors, nothing was done, just silence. The former President of Republics, Rexhep Meidani has received lots of petitions, yet without answer, filling the folders of the criminal state.
During the funeral of Deputy Azem
The democrat Luan Shkreli, as well as many other young Albanians have been forced to leave Albania, in order to save their life, although their forerunners gave their lives, blood, properties and everything for this Albania. This is the little Albania of unparalleled crimes.
The crime in Albania has institutional basis
The crime phenomenon is part of the democratic society. But the paradox is that in the post-communist Albania, the states institutions are founded in crime. Lets remind of 1997, while the power was usurped by the battles of gangs, starting in Lushnja, following in Valona and so on all over Albania. Those who led the rebellions, murders and violence are these same power keepers of today. The independent and the oppositions press, no matter the troubles they went through, dared to mention the names of Fatos Nano, Skėnder Gjinushi, Namik Dokle, Gramoz Ruēi, Arben Imami etc. as organizers of armed groups. The politicians and the institutions of the state suffered no harm, but the Albanian democracy was heavily beaten, the fundamental rights and freedoms were severely touched, as well as the personal property and that of the state. It also was a knock down to the perspective and the trust of the western countries for the progress and the good intention of the Albanian politics to make Albania join the big European family.
The 203 policemen killed during their service in these last five years, and the missing of arrests and condemnations for this reason, speaks of the state managing the crime, for the policeman is the image of law.
The Albanians aspiring for democracy have been fired
out by the gangs of the state, they are imprisoned, beaten, or filling the
lists of death. We say this with a loud voice, with facts. The democrat Aldis Xhevat Sokoli, born on
Kujtim Ferhati, from dictatorship to dictatorship
The family of the Albanian democrat Kujtim Ferhati is a model for
suffering crimes. He was discriminated during the regime of Enver Hoxha. His uncle Osman Zeka escaped from Albania in 1950, and for many years, Kujtim Ferhati and his family
were named Enemies of the communist power. With the braking down of that
system in 1990, this family was involved in installing democracy. Kujtim Ferhati and his
relatives have spent a lot, even risking their life. Kujtim
himself was an active participant in the efforts to pull down the bust of
These communist beasts, that kill and terrorize the democrats every day, are still searching these persons and others, to condemn them, just because they are democrats. The honest Albanians are courageously facing the provocations. Those who see themselves near to the tomb, are forced to leave their country, their relatives and go abroad in western countries, and such is the case above mentioned. Ina few words, the true democrats who suffered violence during the regime of Enver Hoxha, are still noticeably facing violence.
The structures of the state chasing and persecuting the democrats of Malėsi
The sons of the former communists, violently back on power, after the armed Bolshevik revolution of 1997, are still chasing and persecuting systematically the democrats of Malėsi and all those who have different convictions. This is what happened to dozens of members and activists of the Democratic Party and the right winged forces in the area of Malėsi in these last 12 years of transition. Killed, tortured and obliged to leave their birthplace - this is the result of the discriminating politics of the new communists, especially in these last 6-7 years of government. This is what happened to the democrat Arben Dodė Haxhaj, from Bajza of Kastrat, born on September 19, 1975. He was born and grown in a family of patriots and opponents to the regime of Enver Hoxha. Arben and all the members of the family have joined the progressive forces, since the beginning of the democratic changes. During all that period, they have been helping and supporting the candidates of the Democratic Party either in local or parliamentary elections. As involved in the structures of the Democratic Party, as an activist with the youth of the village, Arben was put on the target of the special police structures of the state, since 1999-2000. They used every kind of pressure, in order to stop his political activity. Though having no motivation, on September 20, 2002, two vehicles of the police district of Koplik, have surrounded his house looking for guns and narcotic plants. Even though he didnt protest, but only asked the motive of the violent actions of the police, Arben was beaten by two plainclothes detectives, who were part of the special forces fighting crime, coming from the police district of Shkodra. With the excuse of inspecting for narcotic plants, they let the dog loose, which bit him on the left leg under the knee, causing him to faint. For a few days he had to cure the wound at the health centre of the village, but the sings of the bite are still on his leg. The provocations, anonymous letters and phone calls with death threats were increasing toward Arben and his family, especially toward his father Dodė Nikoll Haxhaj, his mother Luēe and his brother Leon.
As the psychological pressure was increasing,
especially the days after the inspection at the house and the threats that
made Arben feel more unsafe for his life, he found
as the only way out, the departure from Albania, going in an occidental
democratic country, where life and freedom is protected by law. Even today,
agents of SIS, police and other structures of the state still keep on doing
phone calls threatening Arben and the members of
his family, who still live in Albania, perhaps trying to make even them leave
their country, as they are known as definitely in opposition with the actual
governing forces. This is one of the methods, besides the murders,
imprisonments and inhuman tortures, the sons of the former communists use to
eliminate their adversaries and strengthen their criminal power in Albania. Arben and dozens of other from Malėsi
might never come back near by their families, as
their life in Albania is always threatened by the organized crime and the
Mafia that lays down the law in Albania of the new century. Arben and his family had much pressure, threatening
phone-calls, forcing him to leave the country, just to save his life. Rifat Ymeri
The persecution on the family Balaj
The neo-communist dragon is increasing the politic
revenge, the terror on democrat people who want a civilize society in the
post-communist Albania. Watch the picture of the family Balaj.
The three children of Fadil and Vjollca
Balaj are smiling and happy, but they dont know
that the Albanian politics has condemned their parents. They are condemned
not just discriminating them, but also menacing them of death. Alban, Ardit and Era are not able yet to understand the
sufferings of their parents and the consequences of the terror used by their
state! We dont want to mention again the persecution used by the regime of Enver Hoxha, neither want to
stop analyzing the sufferings of Fadil Balaj, who worked in
difficult sectors of geology from 1979 till 1990. On
There are many facts like this in Albania, and our journal, as a platform of the free intellectual Albanian opinion will constantly deal with them. We met the good Albanian Fadil Balaj in a western country, while the Albanians were having a cultural activity there. He and many others had tears of nostalgia for their country, and were very interested on the situation in Albania, giving no space to ask them anything. Something very interesting is noticeable: These emigrants are able to familiarize very soon to the conditions of the life in western countries.
Our question is: How long does it take to the Albanian politics to be educated with the spirit of parity and respect for the human rights?!
The young democrat Robert Lekaj forced to leave his country for his insecure life
By the end of 1950, because of the pressures on Prel Zef Lekaj used by the communist power of Tirana, Prel, along with his son Zef were forced to escape from Albania toward Yugoslavia and then in the USA were they died. Prels wife, Drande, was left alone with 4 children and one of them was Mark Lekaj. In July 1951 was born Antonjeta, the last child, while her mother was in prison. For 50 years the family of Prel Zef Lekaj suffered the most barbaric treatment. They were deprived of all their rights, with 50 years of imprisonments and internments, while their properties were sequestrated. This same treatment was for all the Albanian families who had their members escaped from Albania.
After 1990, with the democracy in Albania, the family of the late Prel Zef Lekaj was having some liberty to breath, helped by the Democratic Party.
With the proposal of the association of the political imprisoned, Mr. Mark Prel Lekaj is admitted in the police department of Shkodra as a police officer. The last two years he worked hard observing the law as the chief of antiterrorism and against drugs.
The people who were condemned for cultivating
drugs wanted compensation after Mr. Mark Lekaj was dismissed without any motivation, by the
social-communists, violently back on power in 1997. These irresponsible
people dare to threat the life to Mr. Mark Lekaj and his only son, Mr.
Robert Mark Lekaj. On
The KLA headquarters is searching those who deserted during the war
By some information we have, some of the former
highest leaders of the headquarters of KLA, some of whom work with the UNMIK
forces have made a list of those who deserted during the war. We come to know
that Pal Nik Doēi, born
Blood-feud is an enlarging plague
In the Albanian state the laws are not working. The
Canon is being observed, and the reconciling associations are doing the work
of the courts, prosecutors and investigators. The case of the citizen of Shkodra, Selim Bushati, is one of those. His family suffered the
blood-feud consequences. On
The politic murders and crime give a hard time to the life and future of Kosovo
Although two years passed since the establishment of
administration of Kosovo, the security there is still weak.
Over 11.000 are killed, 4.000 vanished, 550 massive tombs, 200.000 houses
destroyed and the fact of the growing political crime are discouraging. There
are people forced to leave the country because of the insecurity by the
Mafias groups acting against people and families who refused the military
Yugoslavian system during all their life. One of the many who left is Paulin Kaceli, born on
The democrats are still being arrested in Albania
Albania is still the country of big problems. The
Albanian politic mafia is increasing day by day. Many democrats well known as
unyielding anticommunists are being sought after by
the forces of SIS. Hilė Shllaku,
member of the DP, famous for his disagreement with the socialist system, was
under search. He had tried to emigrate. According to the information we have
as a journal, in these last days, a careful search is being done in the
Airport of Rinas, where the democrat Hilė Shllaku, from the village Darragjat of Shkodra, was
arrested. The Airports stuff has been changed many times, in order to
establish the people faithful to the system. Mr. Hilė Shllaku thus, coming for
the funeral of his mother, was arrested by the forces of SIS, as soon as he
stepped down from the airplane. Hilė Shllaku had participated in the anticommunist
association 13 Dhjetori, in the protests of
