The Top Story show on Top Channel, tried yesterday to present to the public an alleged investigation, and a complete revelation of the “Santo file”, on the criminal event of June 2014, when was killed the banker Artan Santo.
CNA.al brings below some data and facts, which Top Story hides. In fact, if you follow the show closely, it doesn’t bring any news or unknown fact to the public or institutions that have conducted the investigation. The show is in fact a repetition of the investigation of the journalist Artan Hoxha, to whom have been added some testimonies of Santos’s friends, who don’t say anything to shed light on the event.
They just talk about the victim. All the characters or tracks narrated, have been revealed several times by journalists in the media. Moreover, the show had started to be prepared many months ago, but its broadcast was suspended to be given yesterday, having nothing essential and investigative.
Yesterday Top Story did nothing else but only showed what the Prosecution had done with this investigation, so it showed some evidence, which didn’t lead anywhere. But intentionally or unintentionally, hides some other evidence and characters, who were questioned about the murder of banker Santo.
The Top Story show made it clear yesterday, that beyond revealing the truth, there was another mission. Here are 3 important details from the investigative file, that Top Story on Top Channel didn’t dare to mention.
The first are two public figures like Irfan Hysenbelliu and Grida Duma, old friends and collaborators with each other, but also close to the banker Artan Santo. Two are characters, while the third detail is the last call.
First, Top Story somewhere scarcely shows a document, where it is said that the banker had decided to sell the shares of “Focus Group”, because his partner didn’t repay the loan regularly, a loan of several million euros.
“Focus Group”, which includes Balkanweb, News24, Gazeta Shqiptare and Radio RASH, is a company with several media, once owned by both Santos and businessman Irfan Hysenbelliu. At that time there was talk of an open conflict between the two businessmen, and then 50 percent of the shares of the banker Santo, were bought by Irfan Hysenbelliu.
Threatening sms and strong clashes between them, were also talked about in the media circles. The prosecution file has many details that Top Story on Top Channel, took care to not reveal. In the files that claims to own, Top Story also has a well-known political figure, and yet he didn’t say a single word about it.
She is Grida Duma, who has been a close associate of Artan Santo. Moreover, the two have been seen in each other’s company, and have also been photographed. Duma is known as a friend of banker Santo, and on the day of the assassination she was one of the people who sought protection from the state.
At first, she went to the Prime Minister, and then stayed for almost 3 hours in the office of the former Minister of Interior, Saimir Tahiri. The latter has never made public the fact why that day Grida Duma “surrendered” to his office.
But in a televised clash, Tahiri asked the Duma to speak publicly about what she had asked at the Interior Ministry. This fact that shocked Duma, but in political and media circles has been confirmed by some sources, that after the murder of Santo, Grida Duma stayed for many hours in Tahiri’s office.
The last call
Another detail from the show, is the last phone call or calls of the late banker Artan Santo. The banker’s phone, sms or phone calls, would tell a lot the public opinion. The show tried to emphasize that it was not confirmed that the last call was that of Saimir Tahiri.
But on the other hand he didn’t show who was the last, for the fact that having the complete file of the prosecution as it is claimed, there are also files where it is clearly said who was the last phone call of Artan Santo./CNA.al
