Lulzim Basha has repeatedly requested the FBI to investigate Albania's 2018 budget, which he calls a money laundering scheme.

On the other hand, Prime Minister Edi Rama suggested that Basha's the request for the FBI to investigate the 1 billion euro as a potential money laundering scheme to be simply ridiculous.

In response to the Prime Minister, Basha said that the last time Rama mocked the opposition for their accusations; the country was turned into a giant drug plantation.

"While Rama laughed at the opposition, the country was filled with drugs" said Lulzim Basha.

The chairman of DP said that in March of this year, the US state department placed Albania on the black list of countries with the most serious money laundering issues of all countries in the world.
