The concession company of 128 million euros, Integreted Energy BV SPV, which has taken over the Sharra landfill and the Tirana incinerator, has single shareholders Integreted Energy BV, a company registered in the Netherlands, a chain of shell companies, which tried to hide their names.

But, CNA.al has revealed with exclusive documents, which you can read here, which was originally built by Klodian Zoto and the italian citizen Ernesto Granelli. Then, we found out in detail what was the company’s activity, what are it advertises on the official website, how it tries to erase the traces, and how it is involved in the co-management and co-administration of a company that has a Russian citizen as its co-director. (Read here)

After an investigation of a wide network of journalists of an investigative network from several European countries, Integreted Energy BV at one point disappeared, and did not appear anywhere. But we were able to find out, even with the help of our colleagues, that Integreted Energy BV, the company that has 100% of the shares of the company that has the concession of the incinerator in Tirana, had changed its name to Geogenix BV.(Read here)

This happened exactly one day after CNA.al reported about another company in Bulgaria of the owners of incinerators in Albania, Klodian Zoto and Mirel Mërtiri, with Eva Blushi, the wife of the director of Top Channel, Ben Blushi.

And then there was the same Bulgarian company, EM Capital Group, which had bought in Albania 51 shares of “Valtelina Coffee”, which bears the trade name Lori Coffee, and now the owners of the incinerators had become co-owners with the shareholder of Top Channel, Vjollca Hoxha.

Following the discovery of this document, the name of the company Integreted Energy BV was changed in the Netherlands, to Geogenix BV, which you can read here. Today, more than two months after the name change in the Netherlands, the company is embroiled in another scandal. A scandal that could cost even the concessions.

The name of the sole shareholder in the Netherlands, is changed and no official report is made to the responsible institutions in Albania. Within the day, he registered the firm and signed the contract with the Ministry of Environment, and it has been 2 months since the name was changed, and no one knows anything.

Sot, let’s look at the chain. According to a NRC extract issued today, the sole shareholder of the company Integreted Energy BV SPV, turns out to be after two months still the company Integreted Energy BV, although this company no longer exists, but has changed its name.

The company registered in the Netherlands is called Geogenix BV, it retains the same fiscal code but has changed its name. In order to change the name of a concession company minimally, according to the laws of the Albanian state, you must seek the approval of the relevant ministry or institution, that has given you the contract or concession permit.

We asked the Ministry of Environment yesterday, and they told us that there is no request or document submitted by the company Integreted Energy BV or Integreted Energy BV SPV to change the name.

The same answer was given to us by the National Water Supply and Sewerage Agency. According to NWSA, no official document had been sent to these institutions until yesterday by the 100% shareholder and sole shareholder of the company, that won the landfill and incinerator concession of Tirana.

So, not its changed not only the name, but was is ignored every institution. The plenipotentiaries of this concession, doesn’t care about anyone. They go and build a company in the Netherlands, after coming to Albania they receive a concession of 128 million euros and today, almost three years after the signing of this concession, they receive money from businesses and the municipality of Tirana, earn tens of millions of euros, but do not respect one single legal procedure.

First of all, there is no single official report for this change to the relevant institutions, and in this case the change is essential, and does not appear anywhere. Albania, its government institutions, have given a concession to a company that no longer exists today, and the Albanian state does not know this.

With the documents that we possess, it is very clear that the company Integreted Energy BV does not exist, it has changed its name to Geogenix BV, and the Albanian state, the government and the responsible institutions, do not have any documents and these facts hasn’t’ been reported nowhere./ CNA.al

The scandal deepens/ The company of 128 million euros concession is without experience, it started in Albania

In several articles published in recent days, CNA.al has showed with facts and exclusive documents, who is after the Integreted Energy BV company, which has received a concession contract of 128 million euros, for the 30 years concession of Sharra landfill and incinerator in the capital, Tirana.

The company was advertised quite strongly, and was said that he is full of experience, that will open new jobs’ etc. But, we showed with documents, that the company has not any experience. Energy Integreted BV, established in 2016, you can read here, by Klodian Zoto, the same person that appear in the incinerator of Fier, in collaboration with other person involved in this scheme, where appears the partner Mirel Mërtiri, the cohabitant of the latter, Stela Gugalla, as well as an italian citizen Ernesto Granelli.

CNA.al has only one other observation and today with concrete facts we will make an advertisement of Integreted Energy BV. Beyond the documents you read in the scriptures above, we are bringing another fact today.

This company has no experience. So, out of nowhere, it was registered in the Netherlands, now in Albania, and it receives 128 million euros in concession contracts from Albanian taxes. (Read here)

Beyond these maneuvers, shareholders and names of valuation, establishment, letters, contract with the Ministry of Environment, extracts submitted by the National Business Center, and official contracts, we are today setting up a simple direct observation of the company.

The official website of Integreted Energy BV, shows only that there are three projects. They are situated in Albania, Ghana and Zimbabwe.

In the case of Zimbabwe, there was also a public scandal reported in the media, and the project was not implemented. Meanwhile, Integreted Energy BV states that there are two projects in Albania and Ghana. And nothing else to report or advertise as work or any engagement in business.

So, what was claimed as a greater experience in the Netherlands, as a large company ect, is demonstrated now from the official website of Integreted Energy BV company, that the experience is zero. Is this company, which is registered in an open offshore network in the Netherlands, around two months ago, when CNA.al revealed the first online scandal with a company of Klodian Zoto and Mirel Mërtiri in co-ownership with Eva Blush, the wife of Top Channel director Ben Blushi, founded in Bulgaria, that changed his name from Integreted Energy BV to Geogenix BV. ( Read here)

But apparently the name change has been done only for the Netherlands, because in the official websites nothing has changed. But the thing remains the same. And here it is read very clear, and it is understood that this is a company founded with rush and only to operate in Albania, where she has been advertised as a new success story.

LEXO EDHE:  The scandal deepens/ The company of 128 million euros concession is without experience, it started in Albania

In fact, history begins with Albania. Everything is said in media, everything is reported by the government, everything it is said by the mayor of Tirana, are just lies for public opinion to justify 128 million euros, with a dubious procedure, a corrupting affair supported by politics, where you can find a chain of politicians, that shamefully are not investigated, and not being verified by any law enforcement representative in the country./ CNA.al

In an investigation conducted for several months, CNA.al brought in recent days full materials regarding the 128 million euro concession of the Sharra landfill, and the incinerator that will be built there. A concession, that comes after the issuance of two incinerators in Elbasan and Fier in the amount of 50 million euros.

Where in the schemes appear the citizens Klodian Zoto, Mirel Mërtiri, Stela Gugallja and an italian citizen, Ernesto Granelli. CNA.al with exclusive and official documents, has revealed what happened in Elbasan. Also in Fier, which you can read here.

But, in the investigations for Tirana, who is the “ghost” company in the Netherlands, how does Klodian Zoto appear, who are the co-managing companies, how are they related to some Dutch companies, which have the same address.

So in the same a street, same building, same office. A network of representative companies that manage and signed in cooperation with Integreted Energy BV. This company is led by Klodian Zoto and the italian Ernesto Granelli, who has signed contracts for the construction of key incinerators in Fier and Elbasan.

But, this time the incinerator of Tirana, did not come to Albania from the local company, but the scheme was found in the Netherlands. The ‘mother company’ is Residence Corporate BV, which as you can see in the following document, is the one that has the ‘daughter’ Almares Menagment BV.

This company has a director, a Russian citizen and another citizen Marc Lappat, whom in the following document you will see that he signs as a co-director for the company Integreted Energy BV, which is the company that has won the concession 128 million euros, for 30 years, for one amount of 4.3 million euros per year from Albanian taxpayers.

But as soon as the scandal broke out in Albania and CNA.al reported that it would bring the full investigation file, and began to report on the concessions of incinerators, the company Integreted Energy BV, which is the sole shareholder of the company Integreted Energy BV SPV, and won the concession in Albania, changed its name in February.

Meanwhile, CNA.al, on February 12 and 13, published the first articles, which revealed an extract of the company EM Capital Group AD in Bulgaria, which had as owner Klodian Zoto of the incinerator of Fier, Mirel Mërtiri, his co-partner, and Eva Blush, the wife of Top Channel director Ben Blushi.

As soon as CNA.al published this document and the scheme of how this company, namely EM Capital Group from Bulgaria, which you can read here, had bought “Valtelina Coffee”, which bears the trade name Lori Coffee, the company in the Netherlands changes its name. (Read here)

On February 14, according to the following document, two days later in the Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands, the name of the concession company of Tirana was changed. So, Integreted Energy BV becomes Geogenix BV, and this is shown by the following document. According to Almares, the co-signer, it is clear that Geogenix BV is Integreted Energy BV.

According to the two documents above, Residence Corporate Service and Geogenix BV, have the same address in Amsterdam.

In line with to this other document you can see that the stamp of Integreted Energy BV and the trade code is the same as Geogenix BV, but another document, which you will see below, clearly states that the company Integreted Energy BV had changed its name.

After our investigation in February about the concessionaire company of incinerators and the Bulgarian company, which comes in Albania and become co-partners with the shareholders of Top Channel and Vjollca Hoxha, but also with Ben Blushi’s wife, the company in the Netherlands changes its name.

And our staff, and a network of investigative journalists in Europe who are involved in this investigation, spared much time because finding the data appears to be quite difficult. But, over time, with the official publication of the documentation, we clearly discovered that immediately after the publication of the document of the Bulgarian company that “Lori Coffee” had bought, and had become a co-partner with Vjollca Hoxha and Ben Blushi, the only joint stock company of the Sharra Landfill had changed the name.

Yesterday we found out in detail how Almares Menagment BV, the co-directing company of the concession with Integreted Energy BV, had a director a russian citizen. Also, the day before we showed how Klodian Zoto, together with the Italian Granelli, and the current administrator of the company in Tirana had carried out the movements in the Netherlands. (Read here)

Today, with the above documents and other materials that we will publish in the following days, we show a clearly strong connection not only with politics-concessions, but also with the media. And how the concessionaire has tried to hide again. So to eliminate traces through name changes or turnovers in these shell companies, which represent shareholders.

Perhaps Klodian Zoto thought that changing the name, would eliminate everything and that revealed the network of investigative journalists, with the voluminous file on incinerators in Albania. But one move is enough, and “the devil is in the details”.

It is already clear. A company created in the Netherlands in 2016, comes to Albania in 2017, receives a concession of 128 million euros for 30 years. After, hers was joined a management company, Almares Menagment, where other shareholders are hiding, and then a scandal broke out about a company called Em Capital Group, which again has partners Klodian Zoto, Mirel Mërtiri and Eva Blushi, Ben Blushi’s wife, the mother company in the Netherlands changes its name.

But the trading number and code remain the same. The landfill and incinerator company in Tirana is involved in another scandal, because it has aroused some other problems, which CNA.al will publish tomorrow and in the coming days. Because as we have said in both articles previously, the file is voluminous and the materials are being published day by day, to be clearer and more accurate for public opinion. Continued…

128 million euros concession/ Companies in the Netherlands with Russian directors revealed

Nga

CNA.al announced a few days ago the publication of the scandal 128 million euros with the incinerator of Tirana, after the publication of the affair with the incinerator of Elbasan, 22 million euros, and 28 million euros of the incinerator of Fier.

CNA.al showed with concrete documents and facts, that after the company Integreted Energy BV SPV, registered in Tirana on August 31, 2017, on the day of signing the contract with the Albanian government and the then Minister of Environment, Lefter Koka, was a company that had sole shareholder Integreted Energy BV, which was a dutch company.

But contrary to what was advertised, so what was said by the government and the mayor of Tirana that it was a dutch company, indeed behind it stood Klodian Zoto, the incinerator of Fier and Elbasan, together with Ernesto Granelli.

The latter an italian citizen, who was involved in the construction of incinerators in Fier and Elbasan and also another name, Giuseppe Ciafaglione, who is the administrator of the company in Tirana, and in the Dutch representation, of Klodian Zoto. (Read here)

But CNA.al will bring today other exclusive documents. We made it clear yesterday, that Integreted Energy was a company where Klodian Zoto was hiding behind it, and it was registered at Delflandlaan 1 Queens Tower in Amsterdam, as part of a group of companies where traces were lost.

But these were dozens of companies with the same address, and they were part of the mother company, Residence Corporate Services BV, where inside was involved Almares Menagment company, which is co-director of Intgreted Energy BV company.

But what happened?

We will bring with documents, how Klodian Zoto signed with Almares’representatives, which show that he is a co-shareholder. Below we will bring some decisions of different dates, which are of 2018, 2019 and 2020.

In January 2018, Klodian Zoto signed for the board of Integreted Energy, and Hans Wenner signed for the second director, and the seal of the company Integreted Energy BV in the Netherlands, which bears the number 666 71 752.

This is a document, called the decision of the board of directors, who have signed with what is called Shehholder, ie the sole shareholder of the Dutch company, Integreted Energy BV, and sign two persons, Klodian Zoto and Hans Werner, according to this document in english.

Then another document appears, which is dated on March 15, 2019. Klodian Zoto no longer signs this document, but as we showed yesterday, Zoto was withdrawn, and Giuseppe Ciaffaglione was appointed director, who is also the co-administrator of the company registered in Albania.

The document is signed by two citizens, Marc Lappat as director B, and Giuseppe Ciaffaglione as director A. This document was also made to appoint the co-administrator of the company Ajola Kodra, who will be co-director with Giuseppe Ciaffaglione in the company Integreted Energy BV SPV in Tirana.

Here, too, we see that this document is stamped by Integreted Energy BV, and Marc Lappat, signed as a representative of Almares Menagment BV. Further, we have another document dated July 18, 2019, of the Partners Assembly of the company Integreted Energy BV SPV, where the financial statements of the company are signed, and the only partners who sign are Integreted Energy BV, Giuseppe Ciaffaglione and Almares Menagment BV as director B, but the person’s name is not written.

But we remember here, that one of the managers of Almares Menagment BV is Thomas Walter Hansmann. In the third document that we are bringing, is a decision of the Assembly of Partners of January 2020, where something has been added to the company’s activity, but for the company Integreted Energy BV the director A, Thomas Hansman, who is part of the company Almares, which you can see in the full structure of Residence Corporate Services and in Almares Menagment BV, names that appear frequently and another firm, which doesn’t seem to be either Ciaffaglione’s or any other name.

And if you look closely all documents, firms can by very rarely the same, which raises strong suspicions that these may be merely formalities performed in the offices of Albania. Not to mention, that with a simple investigation by the prosecution, it can be verified in the TIMS system, whether these foreign citizens who have signed in Albania on behalf of these companies, have entered and exited, as the Dutch company stamp is missing, and there is only the stamp of Integreted Energy BV SPV, which has the same address as Almares Menagment BV, and which is also the subsidiary of Residence Corporate Services.

But what happened next?

We showed with these documents, that the connection is clear. In an office in the Netherlands, Klodian Zoto went and did not return as an Albanian citizen, but with a dutch company to sign a contract worth 128 million euros. In 2016, he founded the company Integreted Energy BV, and then received a concession of 128 million euros.

LEXO EDHE:  Thellohet skandali me koncesionin 128 milion euro/ Zbulohen të tjera dokumente

LEXO EDHE:  The scandal deepens/ The company of 128 million euros concession is without experience, it started in Albania

But why did we bring all these documents for Almares and Integreted Energy BV companies? We brought these documents, to show that Russian citizens are hiding behind the services provided by Klodian Zoto and related companies. Maybe it looks incredible, maybe someone will try to dismiss it. But the facts are facts.

According to the document below, which are extracts officially issued by dutch institutions, Almares Menagment BV, the co-director of Integreted Energy BV, has two directors, one of whom is Marc Lappat, whom we showed in the above documents as co-signatories.

So as the second director in the administration of the Albanian company, which has won the concession 128 million euros. But Almares Menagment BV, doesn’t just have this director. It is another co-director of this company, which is Alisa Jangildina, born in 1973 in the Union of Soviet Republics, according to the documents we are showing below.

But it is not just the Almares document, that shows that we are dealing with a russian citizen, in the management of these companies. We have also provided another document, which shows that in Residence Corporate Services, the people who run it are the same as Almares company.

So, we have discovered the scheme in three companies, Integreted Energy BV, Almares Menagment BV and Residence Corporate Services, which is the mother of Almares company, where appear again Alisa Jangildina name, and is co-director Marc Lappat, who has signed for Almares company about Albania, and the company that will build the incinerator Tirana.

So Almares Menagment BV is not just a dutch company, with a dutch citizen, or a foreign corporation, but a co-director is also a russian citizen, who co-directs this company with the second or co-director of Almares, and the other company chain that are used in the Netherlands to hide the real partners and traces of Klodian Zoto and his partners.

But apparently that has been impossible. Official documents, published in the official gazette and in the Chamber of Commerce reveal everything, from the founding of the company by Klodian Zoto to Russia, co-director of companies that co-manage the 128 million euro concession for the Sharra landfill and incinerator in Tirana.

CNA.al is closing here the second part of the investigation, where we have brought all the documents we had available. Also, yesterday, we published many documents, and tomorrow we will also bring some other additional materials, which are related to another chain of companies.

With the same names, which include Klodian Zoto, his partners in Tirana, the concession 128 million euros, but also with other businessmen, politicians and former politicians, who have their shares or family members in connection with Klodian Zoto and the 128 million euros scandal.

We will also publish other exclusive data, such as historical extracts and changes that have undergone companies to make it possible disappearing the traces. But, as we reported yesterday, “the devil is hidden in the details”, they were able to hide something, but couldn’t destroy everything. Continued… / CNA.al
