Facts and propaganda/ Mrs. US Ambassador, SPAK is the “Naked King”


Facts and propaganda/ Mrs. US Ambassador, SPAK is the “Naked King”



Yesterday, the US Embassy in Tirana, through a reaction where it was spoken also in your name Mrs. Ambassador Kim, was told the Albanians that US would support the SPAK. That the US will continue to support this institution, at the time when the SPAK had worked and laid the foundations of his new justice, with some proactive investigations.
In fact, Honourable Ambassador, we have published dozens of articles for SPAK over the past few days, about the indolence of the institution, but also about the problems that have the prosecutors themselves. Some have passed Vetting in suspiciously mode, someone has hidden hospital expenses, someone else is blackmailing.

There are accusations, that someone has also hidden even their own child in Vetting, and many other accusations like these, that we believe that the reports of the embassy structures know better than us. But let’s call all this a thing of the past, and go back to the moment, to the expectations, and what SPAK calls success.

Arben Kraja

Yesterday, SPAK told us what he had done these days. It seemed to us like a hole in the water. And this appeared also in the reaction and comments of the disappointed citizens. The most important event was a kiosk built in the 313 Prison in Tirana. And if the SPAK was established to investigate such corruption cases as the shops inside the prisons, we are saying out loud, that the SPAK has failed.

Let’s see something else. It would be good for the embassy and your advisers, to read the comments of the citizens in their writing and reactions. Let them read them easily on social networks, because in our server they are blocked. There are thousands of comments and attitudes, that show the expectations of Albanians citizen towards SPAK.
What you are asking is for Albanians to support SPAK. Yes, the Albanians have supported and continue to support the SPAK, as you do, but even more so the Mrs. Ambassador, because they are the ones who have suffered the injustice of 30 years.

But what SPAK is serving today is an empty spoon. What is happening with SPAK today, and if the work made until now by this institution will label as a success story, this will be indeed a failure. You may not accept it, other international institutions as well, but the citizens are aware that the truth cannot be hidden, and SPAK cannot escape the accusations by hiding behind the internationals, and saying that they can’t attack us, because America doesn’t allow it.

The Naked King, and the servants who wear him the “cloak”

Here is the opportunity to remind them, that if SPAK is incompetent and has come out “naked” on the street, we will say that he is incompetent, and has gone naked on the street. Neither we nor the Albanians can say the opposite. Be convinced Mrs. Ambassador. We do not speak on their behalf, but it is enough to read the comments of the Albanians, to understand what have been their expectations, and how disappointed they are by this SPAK.
We can recall a tale by Hans Christian Andersen, “Naked King”, who was lied to by some supposedly tailors, and taken out in the middle of the crowd, accompanied from behind by some counsellors only in underwear, and everyone applauded how beautiful it was dressed the king in his new clothes.

                                     Adriatik Llalla

A child in the corner shouted and said that the king was naked. Then the whole crowd reacted, and the king was ashamed. The “tailors” took the gold and left. Well, we can’t say that “the
king is not naked”. Today we are in 2020. We can greatly appreciate and respect you for your contribution to our country, for the partnership you have received for Justice Reform.
This reform has the support not only us as the media, but also the majority of Albanians. But even if you and SPAK itself tells us that “the king is dressed”, while in reality he is “naked” on the street, we will not be silent. Even Albanians will not be silent Mrs. Ambassador. They will react more strongly than these days.
SPAK has had high expectations. National Bureau of Investigation as well. A major upheaval was expected. This institution cannot be a facade and a failure. He can’t go out naked, and tells us he’s dressed. It is enough to ask for reports from your subordinates, what has been the work of the Serious Crimes Prosecution, and what is the work of SPAK today.
Look at six worst months of the time of the Serious Crimes Prosecution, and look at these first six months, or when the Serious Crimes Prosecution started working, and the results that SPAK has today. However, a good part there are the same people.

Therefore, the public support of Albanians is not lacking, and no one needs to worry because they are telling the truth. What should happen should be different. SPAK should show concrete facts to Albanians, that it has not come out “naked on the street”. And we as media will not be silent, until SPAK does this work. Until the SPAK gets dressed, and not to be fooled by “tailors” on the street.
We cannot accept that the SPAK tells us corruption stories, with an old file of the former general prosecutor, for which they have launched a ridiculous accusation, and removed all articles, from which he could be convicted. In case you don’t know, Adriatik Llalla will be charged only for 20 thousand euros, that he not declare at the border. They have done him a honour, and have not done justice.

A kiosk in the prison is considered a corruption scandal, when SPAK is silent in front of politicians, whom we have shown with concrete facts that have 500 million lek assets, bought for only 30 thousand euros, on behalf of their children. When the SPAK is silent on the corrupt concessions of the Albanian government, signed by Edi Rama’s ministers and former ministers, it makes us suspect that the head of the institution, Arben Kraja, is a political director of the Renaissance (Socialist Party) and not a product of US-backed justice.
Therefore, if the SPAK does not initiate investigations and bring concrete files regarding corruption, scandals, thefts and abuses on Albanians, no one will remain silent, and no one will support them as in the beginning of the Justice Reform.

               SPAK prosecutors

SPAK will be supported, when he will do his job, and if the prosecutors have lost their minds and want to “get out naked” on the street, we wish them to have a nice trip. We will say that they are “naked”, we cannot say that they are dressed. Whoever thinks differently is in his work.

But the child spoke his word, because he had the courage. He was not afraid of the king, who had come out naked. And if we are the “child”, the others behind us will probably hope to become crowds to tell the truth to the king, so that he will not go out naked on the streets, because he will not only shame himself, but shame the kingdom.
Today, SPAK shames Albania. Today, SPAK shames Justice Reform, the US Embassy and international partners, who invested in this institution. Therefore, no one can remain silent, even those who have been the first fire and flame of support for Justice Reform.

We have probably been a little later. Today they are disappointed, when they see a SPAK that most call now ASPAK (means ‘none’ in Albanian language). So in order to easily understand the “nudity” of SPAK, read the comments and reactions of citizens.
Then you will really understand what is happening with an institution, that is not only not doing anything, but is also making fun of Albanians by issuing reports as if it is investigating or working 24 hours a day. Whilst in fact he is not doing anything. It is simply keeping silent, and silently approving the government’s corruption, and the payments made to the opposition to remain silent like SPAK./

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. (Read here)

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./

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



The scandal with the incinerator of Fier/ Government paid 22.6 billion lek, when he was not yet build



Nga has published a complete investigation file on the concessions of incinerators, including that of Fier. Today we made public the sum of money that this concession has received from the Albanian taxes and the images of the situation in Fier.

The incinerator of Fier was given on concession by the Albanian government according to an agreement, signed by Minister Lefter Koka in October 2016, with the company called Integreted Technology Waste Treatment Fier worth 28 million euros without VAT, or about 35 million euros in total.

Klodian Zoto’s Integreted Technology Service has here 70% of the shares, and 30% of the company “Construction Installation, Patos”. This plant, although it has gone through all the stages from the project to the conclusion of the contract, has been accompanied by controversy and protests, from politics but also the residents themselves, who have spoken out against incineration.

Residents, who have clashed several times with police, have said they have not been asked about its construction, which is being built at a distance of no more than 700 m from the village, and between the plots where they plant vegetables and fruits.

There have even been accusations, that the coordinates where the plant will be built, have been insidiously changed. The case for this incinerator went even to the Administrative Court of Tirana. Residents raised claims that the company “Integrated Technology” is building the incinerator on a different area of what is provided in the studies and decisions of the Municipality of Fier.

However, the court decided to dismiss the claim, arguing that “the plaintiff failed to prove on the basis of written evidence of the alleged consequences and damages”. However today after almost four years, in Fier there is no incinerator, even though the government has paid millions of euros of Albanians taxes, starting very soon after the signing of the contract.

According to official data provided by the Treasury, the Albanian government has paid the company about 22.6 billion lek of a total of 37 billion that provided in total the contracts.

Respectively; for 2016, have been paid 125 million new lek.

For 2017, 640 million new lek.

For 2018, 750 million new lek.

For 2019, 750 million new lek.

So the company has received more than half of the money, and the investment started with the Albanian tax money, being favored by the government without an open international competition, and after almost 4 years the incinerator has not been yet completed.

Although the justification has often been the clash with the residents of the area, or the accusations of the opposition, it must be said that they are 28 million euros from the taxes of the Albanians, that it is not known where they ended up./

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.

LEXO EDHE:  Video-Kush i ka vënë gjobë Erion Veliajt?

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./
