Another minister of Rama falls into the net of justice, SPAK launches investigations into Ogerta Manastirliu for the theft of pandemic funds, here is what the file contains

Another minister of Rama falls into the net of justice, SPAK launches

SPAK has registered criminal proceedings against the former Minister of Health, currently Minister of Education and Sports, Ogerta Manastirliu. The procedure bears the number 81 of 2024 for the criminal offense "Abuse of duty". This proceeding was registered after the report made by PD deputy Albana Vokshi in 2020, for the mismanagement and abuse of Covid-19 funds, at the time when Manastirliu headed the Ministry of Health. Referring to the report made by Vokshi at that time, it is claimed that Manastirliu made secret tenders while he was the minister of health. SPAK is conducting investigative actions for Manastirliu, who in February was called to the Special Prosecutor's Office to be interrogated, for a matter that she described as an investigative secret. In March, Vokshi filed an additional report on Manastirli, adding to it evidence of secret tenders. According to the report of the democratic deputy, Ogerta Manastirliu categorized the tenders for anti-Covid protective tools and equipment as secret in order not to make transparency with the inflated cost of their purchase. The file mentions tenders for masks, which according to the report were bought 4 times more expensive than the market, emergency tenders for respirators and tenders for gloves and disposable protective clothing for doctors. According to the DP's report, there are at least 15 procedures classified state secret in violation of the law to hide the inflated costs of tenders.

Vokshi reacts

On the other hand, yesterday the deputy of the Democratic Party, Albana Vokshi, shed light on the filing of her complaint with SPAK. According to the data published by Vokshi, the scandalous violations committed by the Ministry of Health with secret tenders were clearly visible, where a customs-cleared protective mask with a value of 3 euros was purchased by the Ministry of Health through the company it chose as its client, with a value of 8.3 euros, at a time when you could find it in the pharmacy for a value of 400 lek. "With the greed that characterizes Ogerta Manastirliu, the deputy ministers and anyone who has participated in secret tender procedures, this table is about one of the tenders. There are several tenders that have been developed. The first is for protective masks, where 200,000 FFP2 protective masks were ordered, the customs clearance from the companies that were ordered by the Ministry of Health comes in at a value of 3 euros and on the same day the ministry buys it for 8.3 euros. I bought the same mask at the pharmacy that day for 400 lek, the same mask that the Ministry of Health paid for this client to whom it gave the secret tender. The damage is colossal since we don't know everything. They are disposable hospital clothing, it came in at 9.6 euros and on the same day the ministry paid 28 euros to the customer who had selected it for the secret tender, from 9.6 euros it bought the same product for 28 euros, triple. What justifies this?", she said.

Qendra Spitalore Universitare “Nënë Tereza” ka tenderuar një vlerë prej 1,097,252,839 lekë pa TVSH. Nga ana tjetër, Spitali Universitar “Shefqet Ndroqi” mban vendin e dytë duke tenderuar oksigjen me një vlerë prej 454,605,500 lekë pa TVSH. Ndërkohë renditja ndiqet nga Spitali i Fierit, ai i Durrësit, Kukësit, Kavajës, Lushnjës e Librazhdit. Në total vetëm për oksigjen institucionet shqiptare shpenzuan 2,114,242,355 lekë pa TVSh ose e thënë ndryshe më shumë se 20.5 milionë dollarë.

Barna pa kurë

E ndërsa një kurë e qartë për COVID-19, ishte diçka e vështirë për t’u përcaktuar nga institucionet mjekësore, tenderat për barna të ndryshëm nuk u kursyen. Vetëm për barna, janë realizuar 75 kontraktime. Spitali Universitar “Shefqet Ndroqi” mban peshën më të madhe të kontraktimeve me plot 66 të tilla, ndërsa Ministria e Shëndetësisë ka realizuar vetëm 6. Për këto tenderime është e pamundur të realizohet një llogaritje totale e vlerës, që është shpenzuar dhe do të shpenzohet për shkak se shumica prej tyre janë marrëveshje kuadër dhe oferta e sjellë është në bazë të çmimit për njësi. Ndërkohë kompanitë që kanë përfituar më shumë në këto tenderime janë: Megapharma SHPK e cila ka marrë 15 kontraktime, Rejsi Farma me 10 kontraktime, Edna Farma me 8 kontraktime, Aldosch Farma me 8, Trimed SHPK me 8. Gjithashtu, nuk kanë munguar as tenderimet për blerje pajisjesh, ku për respiratorët kishte kërkesë të lartë gjatë pandemisë. Më 17 Mars të 2020, Ministria e Shëndetësisë nëpërmjet prokurimit të drejtpërdrejtë kërkoi të bënte blerjen e 54 respiratorëve me një fond limit prej 1.1 milionë eurosh (129 milionë lekë).

Tendera sekret dhe tendera me një ofertues

15 contracts which are classified as "secret" were developed by the two Albanian institutions during the pandemic. 14 of them bear the seal of the Ministry of Health and Social Protection and only one that of the Ministry of Justice. "From March 2020 to May 2021, health institutions contracted 60 companies for material supplies related to COVID-19. 11 of the companies or 18% of the total contracts were secret. Also, 11 third contracts or 18% of the winning operators had only the value of the price per unit and not the total amount", says the report published a while ago by "Together for Life". The secret tenders from the given description continued from the purchases of drugs and equipment to the tender with "Paper products and the relocation of the dialysis system from the pediatrics and specialties of the QSUT to the building of the infectious hospital in the QSUT". In the list of tenders there are also tenders, whose object is the purchase of laboratory consumables for the PIH as well as the purchase of materials for personal protection against COVID-19. While it is difficult to find a reason why these tenders are classified as secret. This type of procedure was strongly criticized by the civil society, the media as well as by the opposition parties. Open Data Albania issued a press statement where it described this government procedure as unconstitutional, not legal, not legitimate and in violation of the basic principles of good governance.

Agreements on vaccines

In the moments when the pandemic was at its peak, Albania also concluded four agreements for the supply of anti-covid vaccines. For none of these contracts, classified as secret, the citizens did not recognize the cost they had for the state budget. Meanwhile, classified secret tenders saw an increase during the pandemic. The cost of some of these agreements can only be understood from budget changes or legal acts with economic effect of some institutions. The contract related to the GAVI Alliance has had a financial effect of 4 173 137 dollars, given by an announcement of the Ministry of Finance and Economy "Budgetary support for the purchase of Anti Covid 19 vaccines is increased". Another agreement made for vaccines is also with Pfizer export bv which was reported in the media with a value of 5,995,080 dollars. 20,000,000 dollars were also paid for the contract for vaccines with the company KEYMEN ILAC SANAYI VE TICARET ANONIM SIRKETI (Sinovac). A figure that comes from two payments according to VKM 174 dated 24.03.2021 and VKM No. 357 dated 16.06.2021. As for the agreement for PFIZER OVERSEAS LLC and Human Vaccine LLC (Sputnik V) there is no information.
