Majko collides with Alibeaj, the meeting is interrupted

The issue of the files of former employees of the State Security continues to be a hot issue not only for the victims of the communist regime, but also for the legislators themselves.

Enkelejd Alibeaj, who demands the declassification of all these files by giving access to the entire public, has clashed sharply with Pandeli Majko, who reminds him that a matter of such high sensitivity should not be used politically as it has dramatic social consequences.

But the language used by both crossed parliamentary etiquette leading to an adjournment of the Laws Committee meeting.

Enkelejd Alibeaj: They are closed with a padlock. Files are opened for anyone.

Pandeli Majko: You want the folder to become like Facebook, anyone can enter, don’t insist so much to put a paint on the right that you made fritters. This is nonsense. Go away, come here and talk like a teenager.

Enkelejd Alibeaj: You protect the persecuted, the grain of the communist

The amendment proposed by the right was defeated by the socialists who continued the meeting by passing the law word by word that gives access to the Files Authority to reopen investigations for any functionary despite having a certificate of purity from the Bezhani-Mezini commissions in cases where they have evidence new for their involvement in cooperation with the former State Security.
