Democratic Party Chairman Lulzim Basha has gathered a group of prominent DP MPs today, revealing news of illegal surveillance being conducted on him and his family by the police.
The Democratic Party's responded after hearing the news that Lulzim Basha and his family are under police surveillance by order of Minister Fatmir Xhafaj since the scandal with audio-tapping of his brother Agron Xhafaj.
State Police deny the claims, saying news the DP Chairman and his family are not under surveillance.
"It is not true that Mr. Lulzim Basha, who is the Chair of the DP, or any of his family members, are under police observation.
The content of the article is entirely a media speculation with the aim of deceiving and misinforming the public for purposes we consider to be evil.
We regret that the news in question seems to be fabricated by the offices of a political party and not by a serious newsroom.
Informing the public about the activity of state institutions is a legally guaranteed right, so if anyone were interested in the truth, they can easily get the information officially," declared the State Police in their statement.
