Propozimi për ambasadoren e re në Athinë/ Bushati ashpërson tonet: Po shkelet ligji që kemi miratuar vetë

By Ditmir Bushati

Nothing is true, everything is possible!
This is the title of one of the most widely read books of our time, written by Peter Pomerantsev, which explains the elimination of truth by so-called “political technologists” in the service of their masters. The book shows how political technologists, in the service of the latter and the predatory oligarchs combined in unison, are paid to create a false reality.

The same story is happening in Kosovo since the Special Court for the alleged crimes appeared on the horizon. Encouraged by the principle “the personal destiny of the masters over the destiny of the people”, political technologists set out to explain the “big plans”, both in state offices and in television studios with maps in their hands. In some cases speaking on behalf of Kosovo’s strategic allies with their characteristic ignorance, and in other cases speaking with nostalgia on behalf of Serbia. With a chilling ignorance, as if it is being talked about the quality of Serbian flour imported to Albania, or the need to transfer to Albania the Kosovo experience in vehicle homologation, and not about the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Kosovo!

During the years of designing the “new” reality in Kosovo, governments have collapsed, lobbyists have been paid to bring dusty topics to Serbia’s archives to the negotiating table and the media, but the problems have only deepened. Meanwhile, the citizenship project is at a standstill and the governing project, which received widespread popular support on October 6, 2019, has been undermined.
We are now entering the final phase where a reality is projected according to which the grand plans of amnesty for Serbia’s crimes in Kosovo, the dissolution of the Special Court and a territorial fragmentation in northern Kosovo must be turned into a “historic agreement”.

An Albanian-speaking minority is turning Kosovo’s state project from the principle of equality of sovereign nations, which implies first of all Serbia’s reciprocity and good neighborliness and state responsibility for crimes committed in Kosovo, to amnesty for crimes committed by it ( war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, torture, slavery, etc., which according to international law, have gained the status of jus cogens norm, which is the highest category of rules in the hierarchy of international law. These norms are not prescribed or derogated by no bilateral agreement or international treaty. On the contrary jus cogens norms create erga omnes obligation for states).
From the belief that international justice should uncover any accusation of alleged crimes in Kosovo, by not tarnishing at all the fair liberation war of the Kosovo Liberation Army sons, by establishing equality in crime between Serbia and Kosovo and their amnesty.

From a final agreement based on rights and opens the perspective for the process of reconciliation and EU membership of Kosovo and Serbia, in a territorial fragmentation that enjoys neither the support of the people nor of the strategic allies of the Albanian people.

Pse duhet arrestuar Edmond Haxhinasto/ Ndryshoi projektin 21 herë, kostoja 145 milion dollarë

In recent days, a scandal has erupted regarding the financing of the Tirana-Elbasan road, which has had three segments. The first of which has been Sauk-Tunel, and the third segment, Tunnel-Elbasan.

CNA.al has been able to provide official data from the General Directorate of Roads. The data show that from 2013 onwards, during the time when the ministry was headed by Edmond Haxhinasto, 21 changes were made to the project.

According to official data, it turns out that the construction contracts are of the FIDIC type and in principle unchanged, after they were tendered and this contract was signed. For the first segment of the Tirana-Elbasan road, 14 changes have been made.

Rruga Tiranë-Elbasan

As for the third segment, seven changes have been made, thus increasing the cost of road construction to a value of 80 million euros, or about 95 million dollars. They have been these changes that subsequently led to disputes and enabling the”Aktor” company to go to arbitration and win a sum of 44 million euros.

So, about 80 million euros additional costs after 21 changes, mainly proposed by the “Actor” company, and all after the coming to power of the Renaissance, and Minister of Transport Edmond Haxhinasto.

Road costs, official data

The Tirana-Elbasan road, according to official data provided by National Road Authority, has cost about 450 million dollars. Of which about 14 million dollars, or 12 million euros, has been the value of one kilometer, for 29 kilometers of total road of this project, from Tirana to Elbasan.

The tunnel has cost about $ 105 million. The first segment of the road, the Sauk Tunnel, cost about $ 220 million for 12 kilometers. We emphasize that this segment has not yet been taken over by the Albanian government. And the value of one kilometer in this segment goes to nearly $ 17.2 million.



The third segment, the Tunnel-Elbasan, cost about 125 million dollars, for a length of 11.5 km. At a cost of about $ 11 million per kilometer. So the first lot still undelivered, had a value almost 50 percent more expensive than the third segment.

These costs came after the changes in the project, requested by the “Aktor” company and approved, noting that it is the latter that is responsible for these changes. But, in fact it is the Albanian government which has paid about 80 million euros, or about 95 million dollars. Revenue costs due to changes in the project.

So, as we pointed out above, and from official data, it turns out that the total value of the road is $ 450 million. The first segment worth nearly $ 220 million, and the third lot nearly $ 125 million, given the fact that the tunnel also cost about $ 104.6 million.

The average value per kilometer along the entire length is about 14 million dollars, or about 12 million euros. But, there is a very big difference, between the first lot and the third lot. Where the first lot has cost about 50 percent more expensive than the third.

Facts and arguments

These are all facts with concrete figures for each lot, for the damage caused for each lot and total cost. With 21 changes in the project, with certain points of the amendments which have also left space for the “Aktor” company beyond around 80 million euros, or 95 million dollars additions due to changes in the contract, add at least another 44 million euros fine by the Arbitration.

So, it is not the declared amount of 130 million dollars, as an addition to the total cost together with the Arbitration fine, but it goes around 145 million dollars in total. And here everything has to do with the first and third segment of the road.

So, 145 million dollars are the additions and fines after the changes in the contract due to these two road segments, excluding the tunnel, which has cost about 105 million dollars, and is not included at all in this data./ CNA.al

The scandal with the 100 million car/ Sander Lleshaj cannot put in his pocket the luxurious BMW

The scandal with the 100 million car/ Sander Lleshaj cannot put in his pocket the luxurious BMW

About two weeks ago, CNA.al reported on a scandal involving Interior Minister Sander Lleshaj. It is about the purchase of a luxurious car by the State Police, for the Contact Officer at the Albanian Embassy in Berlin. But then the vehicle was brought to Albania, and is in use by Minister Sander Lleshaj.

As can be seen from the photos below, the vehicle with German license plates was initially parked at the General Directorate of Police.

 

Albanian license plates were then placed on the vehicle, and it was sent to the Ministry of Interior.

Also, a few days ago, CNA.al published photos of Sander Lleshaj in Korça, where of course stood out the luxurious vehicle.

Also, in the parliamentary session on Monday, Sander Lleshaj left the deputies with “open mouth”, after appearing before the Assembly with the 100 million BMW.



But, beyond all these, CNA.al has further investigated, regarding the scandal in question. From the investigation we have learned that the vehicle used by Sander Lleshaj is not registered in any of the Vehicle Insurance Agencies.
Also, CNA.al revealed that the vehicle in question has fake license plates. We remind that there have been fierce debates about the purchase of this tool. The Albanian Embassy in Berlin and the Foreign Ministry have opposed the purchase of the vehicle.

Also, former deputy director of the State Police, Aida Hajnaj, which is actually at the top of National Bureau of Investigation, has hotly debated and contested acquisition of the vehicle. But the scandal lies in some details as well. The huge amount of money that was used to buy it during the pandemic is one of the issues that makes you scream.

When in Albania there are no respirators, when the situation in hospitals is catastrophic, when the economic crisis is plaguing the country, after the tragic earthquake of November 26 and the Covid-19 pandemic, instead of spending money on respirators or fixing houses, Sander Lleshaj orders the State Police to buy him a car worth 100 million Lek.
With that much money, dozens of respirators could be bought for hospitals, and could be reconstructed some houses damaged by the earthquake. While Lleshaj gets a luxury car, with German license plates, which circulates without insurance and with fake license plates, just because the Minister of Interior is looking for luxury. The car he had been not enough for him, and he wants another car./CNA.al

And on the day that ONE Telecommunications is offcially announced, its technical experts confirm that a downlink speed of 1.2 Gpbs has just been recorded in a real-life environment. In front of the “Arena Kombetare” in Tirana, during the morning hours, a technician used a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for a speed test. This unprecedented result with 4G+ in Albania, comes from the aggregation of three frequency bands, simultaneous communication in four channels between the base station and the handsets, and a signal modulation of 256 QAM.

These shops are remodelled to provide a better customer service making them a user-friendly space and a point of reference for everything related to communicatoin. As the slogan of the company says, ONE Telecommunications promises to become Better Every Day for all Albanians.
