The government, the parliament and the judicial system, according to the Democratic Party, are under the control of criminal gangs and this alliance is stronger than ever.
During the conversation with journalists he emphasized the emergency situation the country is in because of the state links with crime.
The chair of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, also responded to the Prime Minister's repeated conviction that the audio tapping does not feature the voice of the brother of the Interior Minister, Agron Xhafaj.
“The audio tapping is real and it is the voice of Agron Xhafaj. The prosecution has sent a copy of the video taken by the media to England and not the original material,” said Lulzim Basha.
The opposition leader did not hesitate to blame the Prosecution of Serious Crimes.
“The Serious Crimes Prosecution has been robbed. They are now responsible for destroying all investigations against criminals. Saimir Tahiri's police model has now turned into the Prosecution Model for Arta Marku,” said Lulzim Basha.
Basha also provided new details about the gun crime in the Bllok area, where one person was killed and two more were injured.
“The recent event in Tirana, which was sold to us for four days as a collision over a famous singer, is actually a clash over drugs. Those involved are known and documented traffickers with power links.
“Do you remember when Saimir Tahiri left for Germany after his passport was returned? Do you know who was in Germany with Tahiri? He was with Mata, who was included in the cafeteria gunfire between rival gangs.
“Where has this happened? It happened in a bar favored by Arben Ahmetaj and other ministers and MPs.
“We are not dealing with minor clashes but with gang rivalry from powerful drug trafficking clans. We have far more incidents than before. This is all about cocaine bargains,” said Lulzim Basha.
The head of the Democratic Party also responded to the interest from journalists regarding electoral reform, saying that the opposition has not boycotted the commission, but that the priority for the opposition is the separation of crime from the election process.
