Through some investigative articles, CNA.al has denounced a scandal of unimaginable proportions, where it is suspected that are involved officials of the “Rama” government. It
is about a scandal that occurred in 2018, for which CNA.al has shown with exclusive documents how thousands of boxes of Chinese pesticides have entered our country, not certified by the European Union, and the entry of which is prohibited by law.
But the officials involved in the affair, have been justified in claiming that the Chinese company that exported the pesticides is a branch of a Spanish company, which has never been proven. CNA.al showed with exclusive documents, that quantities of banned pesticides were loaded in China, then from Shanghai arrived in Durrës. The orders were made by AGRO-ZANI shpk, with address in Berat.
While, another quantity, turns out to be the order of the company “Shegaj-Agr shpk”, which is administered by Adriatik Hadëri. This company has declared on March 14, 2018, the customs clearance of pesticides, which are used in agriculture, where it is clearly stated that the exporting company is a Chinese company.
This citizen has stated that the Chinese exporting company is a subsidiary of the company “MAC-GmbH”, with address in Germany. CNA.al also showed with official documents that the Prosecution of Durrës launched an investigation into this scandal, and it has received full information from customs.
But apparently it is precisely the revelation of this scandal, the one that has led to the dismissal of the director of investigation at customs. This fact was confirmed two days ago in the plenary session of the Albanian Parliament by MP Myslim Murrizi.
CNA.al went further to the investigation, while from some sources we learned that the Director of Investigation, who discovered this scandal, Ervin Brahaj, had a strong clash with Deputy Prime Minister Erion Braçe, and is the latter who asked his removal from office.
So, Deputy Prime Minister Erion Braçe has demanded the resignation of the Director of Investigation at Customs, who revealed the scandal of the introduction in Albania of thousands of boxes of Chinese pesticides, which were strictly prohibited by law. Regarding the issue in question, CNA.al has learned that there was a meeting, which was also attended by customs officials.
Sources emphasize that in this meeting Braçe had a strong debate and clash with the
Director of Investigation, Ervin Brahaj, which led to his removal from office. Perhaps it is a coincidence that the company that has demanded the customs clearance of Chinese chemical fertilizers and Erion Braçe are from Berat.
But the fact is that Braçe has demanded the resignation of the Director of Investigation, who uncovered the scandal. On the other hand, a day ago, CNA.al reported that in connection with the scandal in question, a group of inspectors from the Supreme State Audit have started controlling the customs. But even though the evidence is clear, SPAK has not launched any investigation./CNA.al
