On January 21, 2011, the then opposition led by Edi Rama, organized a protest, or a demonstration, as the Prime Minister would call it today. Thousands of people gathered on the boulevard “Dëshmorët e Kombit”, there were violent events, the police were massacred by protesters, according to political orders given by the leaders of the Socialist Party.
Republican Guard forces then tragically kill 4 innocent people. The first person in charge and the first organizer was Edi Rama. 10 years ago he took people there, abandoned them on the boulevard and ran away by himself, didn’t stand at the top of the crowd, and didn’t turn out to protect his supporters.
He allowed them to clash and for almost 5-6 hours with the police, the use of an unstoppable violence from the crowd on the police, and then from the police on the crowd. Edi Rama is today the Prime Minister of Albania, and today after 10 years, there is still no justice. So he got what he wanted, the power! He became Prime Minister but didn’t bring justice, prosperity or development as he promised his supporters at the time, but sowed corruption and PPP, after the alliance with Ilir Meta. Ilir Meta was at that time Minister of Economy, taking the place of Dritan Prifti, while was published the famous video of the bribe of 700.000 euros for Gimi, a video interception carried out by Dritan Prifti against Ilir Meta.
A video that showed quite a bit how the structures of the SMI functioned, its leader, the ministers, and where the Albanian state had degraded. The video provoked a harsh reaction from Ilir Meta, who called Edi Rama the head of the spy sect, drug users and the like, but forgot any accusation. In fact, the people in that protest were brought out by Edi Rama for Ilir Meta’s bloc, but Rama also forgot Meta’s bloc. The two formed an alliance after 2 years, and came to power receiving almost 1 million votes, over the blood of those killed, over the January 21 bloc, and over spies.
And here we are today. Ilir Meta is the president elected by the socialists, that is, from those who came out in protest for the corruption bloc of Ilir Meta. And today Ilir Meta wants to overthrow them from power, and with whom does he want to do this? With Lulzim Basha, Minister of Interior of January 21, the man who didn’t came out from his house for hours and days. At that time he was very scared, and surrendered to the office of the former Minister of Interior, then Minister of Transport, Sokol Olldashi.
He was scared and shivering, his face was yellow. He was the man in charge of the police force that had killed 4 people, 4 innocent victims, supporters of the Socialist Party who had come out to demand the punishment of Ilir Meta for his corruption, and they were killed on the boulevard while Basha was Minister of Interior and headed the Republic Guard. Today, Lulzim Basha is in opposition, and he has taken Ilir Meta in the coalition together with his bloc of corrupt affairs and his party, and he is aiming to come to power to overthrow Edi Rama, the one who came to power with the bloc of Ilir Meta and the blood of the 4 killed persons.
Lulzim Basha is also stepping on their blood, this time he wants to use it just like Rama to come to power, but otherwise, taking with him the one that people went to protest 10 years ago, Ilir Meta, was today is the president elected by the socialists. And Meta together with Lulzim Basha, who was the Minister of Interior on January 21, want to come to power. This is January 21 of 10 years ago, this is January 21 today, where Edi Rama, Ilir Meta and Lulzim Basha had both their hands stained with blood’s victims.
People protested for Ilir Meta, organized by Edi Rama, and the Minister of Interior was Lulzim Basha. Then Edi Rama joined Ilir Meta and ruled with him for 4 years, and now Meta is taken over by Lulzim Basha, but on the way Rama and Basha also govern together.
So these are the ones who are 3 stained with the blood of the victims of January 21, an event which has not yet brought to justice those responsible. If this were to happen, only then would be calmed down the souls of their families, but perhaps would begin a new era in Albanian politics. But this era does not start, as Edi Rama doesn’t love today’s justice, as
he is afraid of facing justice tomorrow./CNA.al
