Deepens the scandal with the concession of 128 million euros/ Other documents revealed



A group of investigative journalists, were able to obtain a complete document yesterday regarding the company Geogenix BV, which is in fact Integreted Energy BV, the 100% shareholder of Integreted Energy BV SPV, which is the incinerator concessionaire of Tirana, worth 128 million euros, for 30 years.

In this document provided by us, it is once again clear that the company Integreted Energy BV in February this year, immediately after the publication of the scandal, of a company EM Capital Group, founded in Bulgaria by Klodian Zoto, Mirel Mërtiri and Eva Blushi, the wife of Top Channel director Ben Blushi, changed her name.

According to official data from this company, it turns out that it was established in 2016. In 2017, i.e in the year when it signed the concession of 128 million euros, the company had zero activity. So turnover and profit have been almost non-existent.

On the other hand, in 2018, the company has a turnover of 920 thousand euros. In 2019, according to these data, this turnover amounts to 1.1 million euros. So, a company set up from zero, as soon as it signed the concession in 2017, start circulating millions of euros.

Meanwhile, official data provided by journalists, show the management of the company, which today has a 78-years old in its direction, which has taken the lead since December 2019, and also continues the company Almares Menagment BV, which has signed, as we have shown in other writings, the co-management of the company, where one of the directors of Almares is a Russian citizen.

Also, named in the documents are the last three directors, one of whom is Mr.Giusepse Ciafaglione, who is currently one of the managers of Integreted Energy BV SPV, and Klodian Zoto, born in 1976, who ran the company from 2016 until on March 20, 2019. So, from its establishment, until shortly after it signed the concession of 128 million euros in Tirana.

Further, the data collected by journalists show the history of the name change, which has happened in February of this year. Also, the document show the three projects launched by this company, which are Albania, Gana and Zimbabwe. This third was also involved in a scandal, reported in the media.

On the other hand, it is shown who are some main partners of this company, among which is “De Mare srl”, which is the company that won with direct procurement 15 million euros for the cleaning of Porto Romano, the risk zone waste of Durrës.

Which in fact was in collaboration with another Albanian company, such as Viktoria Invest, but apparently the latter has been simple and only facade, and everything there will be done by Klodian Zoto himself and his partners.

Furthermore, was able to provide other data related to this company, built only a short time before winning a tender of 128 million euros in Albania. A company with no experience, which appeared from nowhere and earned some bags of money.

It was advertised by the mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, as a success story that would employ many people. But it was actually a company, that was born out off shore shell. Furthermore, Top Channel also appears in favor of this company and incinerators, where in some reports has also provided the partnership of the owners of the incinerators with Ben Blushi’s wife. Today, after more than 10 denunciations, the institutions have not yet reacted. The Prosecution has not launched any investigation, but it is expected that in the coming days, with the documents and facts brought by, no one will remain silent. It cannot be passed without revealing a truth, that will cost Albanians citizens hundreds of millions of euros./

Why should be arrested Edmond Haxhinasto / He changed the project 21 times, with a cost of $ 145 million




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. 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./



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, 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, 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, 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, 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./
