In recent days in the Albanian political scene, has returned the issue of funding with the firm of Lulzim Basha in a lobbying company in the US, to provide a photo with President Donald Trump and support in the US Congress.

So Basha has lobbied in the US with funding from offshore Russian companies. But what is the truth? On the eve of the general parliamentary elections of 2017, Lulzim Basha published on social networks a photo with former US President Donald Trump.

In the media it was reported that Trump’s photo with Basha cost not a little, but about 20.000 dollars. President Trump was on a fundraising evening for a candidate of his party. That night Trump took photos with anyone who was present and who paid 20.000 dollars.

Basha bought a ticket to enter that evening, and the price was 10-20.000 dollars (depending on the position of sitting). But the pear has its tail back, and after the publication of the photo with Trump, broke out the scandal of money lobbying funded by Russian offshore companies. (read here)

So, the lobbying scandal with Nick Muzin in the USA, where were paid 1 million 25 thousand dollars, for which Lulzim Basha has given 3 different versions in the 3 times he has spoken on this issue. In November 2017, the BIRN news agency published a full article on the funds the DP had paid to provide support to the US top administration.

Meanwhile, only 2 weeks after the publication of this denunciation, was published a photo of Lulzim Basha. In the media and politics circles it was reported that the DP leader was traveling to Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.

Further, in March 2018, the American investigative magazine “Mother Jones” published a full investigation into the donation of 675.000 dollars by the DP for the company Muzin, with the signature and personal negotiation of Lulzim Basha, to secure support for him in the USA.

In this article, were made public facts on how Lulzim Basha has offered fat payments for his promotion in the USA. The same article states that Basha has contracted an American lobbyist named Nick Muzin, who is also a former aide to Donald Trump’s campaign.

The contract between Muzin and the Democratic Party was signed by Basha, to lobby for the DP in March, April and May 2018, and for this the latter would receive 25.000 dollars for the services he would perform within this time frame. (read here)

This denunciation was also reported by the Voice of America, the New York Times, and caused a great deal of controversy in Albania. No one talked about the detail related to the photo of Lulzim Basha, reported in December 2018 and a possible visit to Edinburgh, where according to American media is based Binniata Trade LP, which in the denounced scandal has paid 150.000 dollars for the DP, the American company of Nick Muzin.

CNA.al went further in the investigation and in March 2019 we published the official documents of the US Department of Justice, where according to the statements made by the Lobbying Company Muzin Capitol LLC, registered on 14.11.2017, it results that: The Russian company Biniatta Trade LP would pay Stoningtone Strategies company, according to the agreement 4 amounts. The document states:150.000 dollars for each month for a period of 3 months, on March 15, April 15 and May 15, for a total amount of 450.000 dollars.

It is further written that Biniata Trade LP will pay Stonington Strategies the amount of 500.000 dollars as a special fee until the closing of the agreement on March 23, 2017.

So Basha has paid 450.000 dollars in 3 months, and the amount of 500.000 dollars as a special payment from the Russian offshore company, so in total 950.000 dollars. Plus 75.000 dollars paid by DP and thus become a total of 1.025.000 dollars paid by DP and Lulzim Basha for lobbying in the US.

On the other hand Lulzim Basha has given several versions. In the show “Opinion” he stated that he didn’t know the company Binniata Trade. But the contract signed by him has Binniata’s name written on it and declared by the Muzin company.

On the other hand, there is the unfinished trial of this case in Albania. Basha claims that the responsible authorities have investigated and the accusations according to him have been defamation. But the truth is that the case is closed with procedure, and it is not a closed trial.

The prosecution hasn’t questioned Nick Muzin, and has not formally received the documents.

Lulzim Basha’s photo with President Trump is proven, statements to the US Department of Justice by the Muzin company are proven, and so are Binniata’s payments to Nick Muzin. And this is a scandal that will remain a black mark in Albanian politics. The deeper it is analyzed, the more details emerge. Russian companies, dubious sources, occasional trips to the areas of these companies, but also silence and contradictory attitudes of Lulzim Basha himself./CNA.al

Dinko Cvitan & Arben Kraja/ Where does differ the head of SPAK, with the prosecutor who arrested the Croatian Prime Minister

Publikuar

cna lajem aktualitet

Through a letter sent to the parliament, the SPAK prosecutors have asked to stay in these positions forever. And the ridiculous aspect of this letter, is that they seek lifelong mandate almost as a condition of doing their duty. This is the fifth request in a row made by SPAK, directed for 3 years by Arben Kraja.

All of their claims were related to additional benefits. With salaries 80 percent higher than the highest paid prosecutor in the justice system, with additional benefits related to retirement age, etc., now Arben Kraja is asking not to have such benefits not only for 9 years, but for all his life.

Nine years is a long period, but it seems that these years are not enough for SPAK prosecutors to do their task. Therefore, they demand the amendment of the Constitution, removing the 9-year term of mandate for 10 SPAK prosecutors. They demand this with the reasoning they will be calmer in the fight against crime and corruption!

Because in that way, they think can work independently of politics. Dinko Cvitan is the prosecutor who filed charges against former Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader in Croatia. He has often been described as the man who took the act, that opened for Croatia the door to the European Union.

Today Cvitan is a simple prosecutor of the Court of Appeals in Croatia. He has not fled the country, as a result of any threats against him during his tenure! And today he doesn’t hold any leading position in the justice system. Meanwhile, his Albanian counterpart Arben Kraja, has constantly asked for additional benefits.

During an interview given during one of his visits to Albania, Dinko Cvitan stated: “Whoever is looking for a car doesn’t fit for this job. This is a job that can be done only someone who is smart and has a heart”.

Arben Kraja, after receiving an 80 percent salary increase, after receiving additional staff, continued to look for cars, new offices, and now a lifetime mandate in office. Dinko Cvitan made history in his country, and today continues to work as a simple prosecutor. Kraja asks for favors, so that SPAK can start to “exercise its duty” seriously.

But everything is clear. SPAK is asking Rama to change the Constitution, as a condition for closing the corruption files. This is the “work” that is promising to do Arben Kraja. Rama doesn’t have the votes to change the Constitution. But Luli Basha, who is asking for vetting of himself from Arben Kraja, has the votes that Rama needs.

One thing is clear!

SPAK prosecutors have on the tables files of Rama and his ministers. But Arben Kraja is not Dinko Cvitan. So he cannot do the job. If the majority doesn’t have a file in the SPAK, then it must protect the terms of office as set out in the justice reform.

If this request is met as a condition “to do the job”, prosecutors and SPAK will again ask for another favors. With the name written in the Constitution, Arben Kraja can request any tender, any concession, any contract.

Dinko Cvitan was right. To do justice requires wise and heartfelt people. Arben Kraja is not Dinko Cvitan!/CNA.al

Lulzim Basha with Chinese slogans/ “One party, one Assembly”

Nga

In his last struggles to hand over the stamp, after the party has already been taken over by “Rostrum”, the interim chairman of the Democratic Party for only a few weeks, Lulzim Basha, is trying to make some moves which show that Luli Basha never disappoint.

So it is the same, with the same form, content, without any change. It is Lulzim Basha who “grits his teeth”, as happened with the building of the National Theater, with the tax of the National Road, with the introduction of Fatmir Xhafaj in the office of the Minister of Interior, where his body would become the main obstacle.

In fact, he turned into the body of a “political prostitute”, and nothing more than that. Beyond that, Lulzim Basha has started to thicken his voice, just as he threatened to burn the mandates, boycott the elections, that he would burn Albania, and others like that.

Yesterday he raised his voice again in parliament and pretended to be a strong guy. He then called the meeting of the DP Presidency to find another date for the convening of the National Assembly. He didn’t like the date December 11, and set December 18. Because he doesn’t like the date of establishment of the DP, but wants a date to identify with it.

But beyond that, today he has made the next gaffe. Lulzim Basha emphasized that “We will have one party, and one Assembly”. A slogan like in communist’s China.

Only China has a party and an Assembly. Because now Basha thinks that there will be one party and two Assemblies, or two parties and two Assemblies. In fact the members of the Democratic Party have signed. And not for 4200 or for 5.000 signature, but even for 200 or 300 who have gathered Sali Berisha and the “Rostrum” in almost 20 meetings, Lulzim Basha should have been there.

And what he needs to understand is exactly that. A leader goes where the people are. And it is not the people who go to the leader. So they are members of the party, militants. But even if they are not the signatures of the people who are part of the Assembly. Even 50 fake signatures.



It is enough that are gathering the members of the Democratic Party, leaders of the structures. 50 plus one or either, it doesn’t matter. It is important that the Democrats gather and Lulzim Basha couldn’t use Chinese slogans against them, but he has to go where Democrats gather.

Because thus choosing the Chinese version “One party, one Assembly”, will never win and will remain a big loser.

In this way he has lost the elections in the last 8 years and apparently did not understand what he did. He continues to move forward in his political “madness”. Basha is using Chinese slogans, “One party, one Assembly”, to gather people when he wants, where he wants and how he wants.

In fact the Democratic Party will convene when the Democrats want it, where the Democrats want it, and as the Democrats want it. And the Chinese slogans, “One party, one Assembly”, simply and only show the Chineseness of Lulzim Basha./CNA.al

Grida Duma, from the murder of Artan Santo, to erotic video scandals

cna news, cna lajme, lajme cna, lajme flash cna, cna.al, cna lajme politike,

Lulzim Basha MP, Grida Duma is a personage who has been the subject of several scandals during her years in politics. At least 2 sensational events are associated with the name of Grida Duma.

First we remember here Artan Santo, the late former banker, who was killed in the middle of Tirana in 2014. Grida Duma has never spoken in public about the case of Artan Santo, and what she talked on the day of the latter’s assassination with former Interior Minister Saimir Tahiri in the latter’s office.

Grida Duma, has been a man close to Artan Santo. Moreover, the two have been seen in each other’s company, and have been photographed together. Duma was known as a close friend of banker Santo, and on the day of his assassination, she was one of the people who sought protection from the state.

Firstly, she went to the headquarters of 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 we cannot forget the position taken by the former Minister of Interior Saimir Tahiri, who during a TV debate on the show Opinion on TV Klan, addressed Grida saying that she knows very well how he did the job. “Grida knows very well how I work!”- he said.



It was Tahiri’s statement that reminded Duma through a coded message, the case of Artan Santo. But MP Duma has also remained silent about the erotic video scandal, recorded in the hall of the Albanian Parliament.

We recall here that in February 2018, CNA.al published an exclusive video where MP Ervin Salianji, exchanged perverse messages with a person with the initials G.D, and who was later identified in the media as Grida Duma. Even for this scandal, Duma has so far remained silent, as she tries to pass in silence any scandal related to its name./CNA.al
