The scandal/ Concessionaire of 128 million euros hides the name changes


The scandal/ Concessionaire of 128 million euros hides the name changes



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, 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 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./

The scandal with the Qukës-Qafë Plloçë road/ Abuses increased the costs, another 90 million dollars are needed




The $ 125 million project for the Qukës – Qafë Plloçë road, 43 km long, financed by the Islamic Development Bank, requires an additional $ 90 million investment to be completed. Road costs have multiplied because the interruption of works has caused great damage, but also because another segment (lot 3) has been left without funding.

The Albanian government has asked additional funds from the Islamic Bank, justifying the cost with changes in the project and unforeseen costs, said an official source for In fact, it was the intervention in the project and the delays that caused these damages, which are estimated at almost 70 per cent of the initial cost of the road.

The investment

Qukës -Qafë Plloçë is an investment started in April 2013, through a loan, but in September of that year with the political rotation everything stopped. The Renaissance government stopped the tender, demanding that this road not be financed, but that the funds be transferred as loans.

The contract with the bank was clear, and the government withdrew from its request. Then tenders were held for 3 lots, but immediately after the start of works began the problems. The road clearly had “enemies”. From deputies of the Korça region, to important ministers, maybe even the Prime Minister Rama himself, who although he inspected it several times, seemed skeptical about the project.

The Rama government, at the time when the Ministry of Infrastructure was headed by Edmond Haxhinasto, although a concrete and funded project, intervened several times, causing delays at great cost. They allegedly consisted of project changes, while works were being carried out.

“Instead of removing the eyebrows, they seem to have raised their eyes”, this popular expression is very convenient for this case. A brutal intervention without thinking, with a project that should have been completed two years ago in 2018, has been left without funding.

A road left unfinished, which today requires almost 90 million dollars, 60 of which in the 3rd lot, and almost 30 million dollars are investment for the second lot, for slips and deviations, due to the abandonment of works. So, the road costs have been increased simply and only by the irresponsibility and abandonment that has been done to the investment by certain segments of the government.

Interventions and damages

Interventions in the project and everything else, ie interruptions, blockages of funding, slowdown of Works, have started during the time when the Ministry of Infrastructure was headed by Edmond Haxhinasto, and the damage caused to the state budget in this investment look colossal.

There are $ 90 million expected to be provided as additional funding over the initial project. But who pays for these staggering costs?

The road will provide funding, and for at least two years can go to completion. But will anyone ever be held accountable for wrong policies and damages? All are consequences in the state budget and the huge costs, that will be paid from the pockets of taxpayers, as all are loans and interest repaid from the budget.

Edmond Haxhinasto and the former director of roads, probably sleep peacefully in their homes and continue their political activity. But someone must bear legal responsibility for a crime worth tens of millions of dollars at the expense of Albanians.

Needless to say, the facts speak for themselves, the wrong policies of former road director and former minister Edmond Haxhinasto neglected a $ 125 million investment, adding costs to the $ 90 million.

And this is only because they hated that investment, and wanted at all costs project changes, tenders, millions of extra dollars, for their own interests, and not for the successful completion of a project that gives great impetus to the movement towards the south-eastern area in the country. /

Qukës-Qafë Plloça, the face of the failure of the Renaissance/Rama lies shamefully Albanians




Rama, Haxhinasto, Dade, Peleshi ne inspektimin e rruges Qukes - Qaf Plloçe ne vitin 2016

Prime Minister Edi Rama published yesterday some photos from the construction site on the Qukës-Qafë Plloçë axis, for which he states that it was another road left unfinished by previous government, especially after 7 years that he has gone 20 times, and takes the same photos.

Even turtle would have gone all the way with Rama’s rhythm for its construction. “The Qukës-Qafë Plloçë construction site, on another road left unfinished, where the works in tunnels 1, 2 and in the tunnel 3 of the emergency exit, have already been completed.

After a long odyssey of remaking the project from the beginning of the road left unfinished and re-arranging the financial agreements, the works for the construction of the structures, and the filling of the route continue intensively” wrote the head of the government in FB.

        Investimi i braktisur Qukës-Qafë Plloçë

In fact, Rama lies again shamefully and abusively the Albanians. It was not a road left unfinished, but it is a road which had a clear project, and its signed funding. Is Edi Rama that has procrastinated this project, because he did not want it to be built.

The tender had to take place in September 2013, and it was Edi Rama who wanted to cancel this investment. He made the tender himself, he had the project and financing ready, but he has not been able to finish it for 7 years, because Edi Rama hates that road. Not because we want to, but because of the facts speak for themselves.

We recall here that on time Minister Edmond Haxhinasto sent a letter to the Islamic Bank and the Saudi Development Fund, requesting that this investment to be transferred in to a kredit one. The road that has been left neglected for seven years, not by Berisha’s government, not by the former Democratic Party government, but by Edi Rama.

Because Ridvan Bode, Sokol Olldashi and Sali Berisha handed over the power in September 2013, just when this road was about to begin. And they left the loan, the project, Rama ramained just to sign the tender.

But Rama postponed this tender, because he asked to cancel of the investment, as he failed due to a penalty of tens of millions of euros. It is his government that has made the tender, and it is government of Edi Rama that has announced the winner.

Ahmetaj, Gjiknuri, Balla dhe Shalsi duke inspektuar kantierin e rrugës Qukës-Qafë Plloçë 2017.

It is government of Edi Rama that has made the tender with the financing, and the project that was ready. Rama says the road was neglected. Yes, this is true. But guilty for this are Edi Rama, his ministers Edmond Haxhinasto and Damian Gjiknuri, not to mention that the new Minister of Infrastructure, Belinda Balluku, is also responsible for these almost two years.

The tunnels that Rama showed yesterday, were completed many years ago, and nothing has happened to them yet. They have simply been painted, or it has casted chippings on their tracks.

Edi Rama is lying publicly. He has been himself to the construction site several times. He said once that the road would ended in 2015, in 2016 and then in 2017. Now we are in 2020, and Edi Rama has lied four times about this road.

Even if it were a road without a project and had started incorrectly, why did Edi Rama conduct the tender without having a project? Second, how many years did it take Edi Rama to make the project of a road bed? Seven years to do or change a project as well as funding, and the road doesn’t end, nor is it known when it will end.

Did the ministry needs seven years to make funding adjustments or a new project? On the other hand, Edi Rama says that the financing contract was reaffirmed. It’s not true, it’s a pure lie. The entire road loan has been signed since 2013, but Edi Rama wanted to cancel it and his thieving ministers increased the road costs.

And were they who neglected the project. There are the responsible institutions, such as ARRSH and the Ministry of Infrastructure that abandoned the contruction in time to this road. Rama has signed the increase of costs, same as with the Tirana-Elbasan road.

Rama, Peleshi, Balla, Haxhinasto inspektojne punimet

Costs that increase due to abandonment of investment for several years. But, there is another scandal, which Edi Rama does not say and keeps hidden. But, as the truth of the Qukës-Qafë Plloçë road emerges, he reacts shamefully.

Why does the third lot have no funding?

Rama shows us two tunnels and an emergency tunnel, as a miracle in seven years of his government. But how could this road be advertised to have started from zero, and should have been completed three times so far. Is Sali Berisha still to blame after 7 years in power?

The Nation Road, with 2 tunnels of 6 km. The Tirana-Elbasan road, with 2 tunnels of 2.46 km, the yesterday government has build at a lower cost, today Rama and his people are doubling the costs.

Qukës Qafë-Plloça has several small tunnels, and it is a road that had funding, and the project was ready. Maybe he wanted some small changes, but still 7 years needed for them? Did Edi Rama leave the third lot without funding? This road was never finished, and Edi Rama wants to catch the eye of Albanians with his unbridled propaganda, as if what he is doing on the road Qukës-Qafë Plloçë.

Edi Rama made a hole in the water

And if the government’s successes are these roads, it’s a shame. An entire government in seven years cannot complete a 40-kilometer road, with secured funding and a ready-made project. Qukës-Qafë Plloça is the road neglected by Edi Rama, Renaissance, his ministers, and today, before showing some tunnels painted or with casting gravel, he must apologize to the residents of the Korça region.

Qukës-Qafë Plloça is not the success, but the most spectacular failure of Edi Rama and Renaissance in infrastructure. For seven years, not even 40 km of road can be completed. Qukës-Qafë Plloça is the road forgotten by Edi Rama, the responsibile is the prime minister, and his propaganda in this case has no value./

Rama approves the construction of the landfill in Vlora /The winner of tender is Klodian Zoto of the incinerators




It can now be considered already waste treatment network (incinerator-landfill), as long there is only one name behind it. The anti-corruption department in the Democratic Party, through a Facebook post, writes that, “the landfill of Vlora, approved by the Prime Minister, has gone to Klodian Zoto”.

“When it comes to solid waste, or not, landfill, incinerator, built-in or in paper, Klodian Zoto should automatically come to mind”- the post reads. According to the document, the concession it is about managing and depositing solid waste.

In fact Zoto is not an unknown name in the multi-million-dollar activity of cleaning or burning rubbish in the country, as built-in incinerators, and thoshe under construction bear his administrative responsibility.

Listing the burners in Elbasan, the landfill in Fier and that in Tirana, as well as the activities outside Albania up to Zimbabwe, the reaction states that the Prime Minister Edi Rama has approved the construction of the landfill of Vlora.

“Even the landfill of Vlora goes to Zoto… When it comes to solid waste, or not, landfill, incinerator, built or on paper, Klodian Zoto should automatically come to mind. Involved and beneficiary in the Elbasan incenerator, given to the ghost company created specifically to enter into contract; involved and beneficiary in the landfill of Fier, without competition and illegal quota transactions, landfill whose only name is known, because for waste treatment has not yet congratulated “Good job!”.
