The scandal/SPAK is “protecting” Ben Blushi


The scandal/SPAK is “protecting” Ben Blushi



Ekskluzive-Dosja e pronave të Ben Blushit përfundon në SPAK

Justice reform, strongly trumpeted by Albanian politics, and with a very strong support from the international community, does not seem to be meeting the expectations of public opinion. Albanians expect from the new justice, investigation and punishment of corruption and injustices done to them in 30 years of democracy. But in fact what is happening, is not at all what the citizens expect.

One of the new justice institutions, the Special Prosecution Office against Organized Crime and Corruption, otherwise known as the SPAK, although six months have passed since its inception, still seems to be asleep.

Prosecutors who claimed that the corrupt would no longer find a “hole” to hide, in fact seem to be making only a hole in the water. No sensational investigation in more than six months. One example that proves what we said above, is the case of the former politician, now turned into media manager, Ben Blushi.

For several months has denounced a complete investigative file, regarding the property of former MP Ben Blushi, who turns out to be an oligarch in the media. But so far from SPAK there is only silence. has uncovered the declared wealth of Ben Blushi, during the time that the latter was paid by the taxes of the Albanians, ie from 2003 to 2017, and it turns out that his wealth has increased in a crazy way.

Property in Korça

Also, has brought other details, regarding apartments, constructions in Tirana, from the property of his family. Evidence released every day shows that it is impossible for a man paid 20 years with a state salary, with official income to enjoy a crazy fortune, which is worth millions of dollars.

Also, we have reported for a property in Korça, the value of which is at least 500 million Lek, but that Ben Blushi has declared it for a value only 30.000 euros, while this property was then rented for 2.000 euros per month.

On the other hand, has published other details, regarding a building built in Tirana in 2013, near the former “Dinamo” Stadium, which is owned by a builder and another character. It is about the father-in-law of Ben Blushi, the late A.Brati.

Further, in May 2020, after several complaints from the residents of Dardha, has made another investigation. has revealed how Blushi’s wealth has increased by another 250.000 euros.

Below you can see a sale-purchase contract, performed by the notary Zhulieta Mano, number 3331, in 2001, where Ben Blushi bought in Dardha of Korça, a property for 12 million of old Lek (circa 10.000 euros). A two-room property, separated by a corridor, part of a one-house property there.

Blushi invested in that small house and then, using the legal space, makes a request for legalization procedure during the time when Rilindja (Socialist Party) came to power, a land area, for almost 2.000 square meters, in the center of Dardha village. Moreover, there was a clash and conflict with the inhabitants of Dardha. They claim that the area does not belong to Ben Blushi. That this property has owners and heirs. These are two real estate properties, one in Korça and the other in Dardha.

And here we are not talking about his wealth in the capital. We are not talking about another 300 million Lek, which are in second tier banks in the form of treasury bonuses or other millions made through the ways he has been able to manipulate his wealth.

But apparently Ben Blushi does not stop there. Other data came to light few day ago. On

June 15, 2020, former Prime Minister Sali Berisha published the denunciation of a citizen, according to whom, Ben Blushi has “robbed” land on the sea coast in the south of Albania.

According to the complainant, Ben Blushi has robbed a land in Dhërmi, through forgeries. The denunciation also states that Prime Minister Edi Rama, has fired two mortgage directors in Vlora, after they discovered the falsification of documents and refused to register.

It is also alleged that for this land, Blushi also clashed with the businessman Pandi Carapuli who built there. “Dear Doctor. I am a mortgage employee in Vlora. A month ago, a big quarrel broke out in our offices for the registration of a property in Dhërmi. It is about 6000 m2 on the coast.

By pressure and blackmail it was recorded after it was forged. So there was displacement. The property is by the sea and ostensibly divided by law 7501. But when we saw the names of the owners we understood how things were. The surface was registered in the name of Ben Blushi and Gazmend Demi.

The scandal broke out in the mortgage, and 2 other directors were fired just for this case. A bag of money was paid. A big clash has started between Blushi and the businessman Pandi Carapuli who has built there. An open theft in the middle of the day in one of the most valuable areas in Albania. Pearls of the Riviera were abducted by Ben Blushi the Co. The property was registered on 06.05.2020”- it is said in the message.

But in the case of Ben Blush, it seems that appetite comes from eating. Four days ago, on July 20, 2020, former Prime Minister Sali Berisha published another denunciation of a citizen against Ben Blushi. According to the complainant, after the property of 6.000 square meters, which was received by Ben Blushi, now his wife in cooperation with an SP official, has acquired 3.000 square meters of land in the south.

These are just some facts that has published about the dizzying wealth of Ben Blush, but apparently the justice institutions have neither ears to hear nor eyes to see. A member of the staff has dealt exclusively with this file, and all the published materials have been made available to the SPAK institution.

The head of SPAK, Arben Kraja, in a communication with has confirmed that the file has been received and will receive legal solutions, but no concrete investigation has been made yet. Ben Blushi’s fortune should be investigated in every penny, as his claim that he has already withdrawn from politics has no value.

Until 2017, Ben Blushi was paid from the taxes of Albanian citizens, and every penny of his wealth must be investigated by the justice authorities. The ones he has not read, are here in this article, for Arben Kraja and every prosecutor of SPAK that today is afraid to investigate Ben Blushi./

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./
