The government in panic after the call of Belinda Balluk and Engjëll Agac to SPAK, the 17 decisions that burden the positions of the General Secretary of the Prime Minister, their testimonies against Erion Veliaj, the majority in chaos

The government in panic after the call of Belinda Balluk and Engjëll Agac

The General Secretary of the Prime Minister's Office, Engjëll Agaçi, and the Deputy Prime Minister, Belinda Balluku, recently appeared at the Special Prosecutor's Office to account for the Tirana incinerator affair. Also for this issue at the end of April, the mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, appeared at the SPAK, who stood in front of the investigators for nearly 7 hours. Justice also summoned the mayor of Durrës, Emirjana Sako. Apparently, this file is nearing the end and the landing of high SP officials one by one in SPAK has panicked the government. It is learned that the prosecutor Dritan Prençi is expected to decide within the month of May regarding the Tirana incinerator file if he will send it for trial. But what happened at SPAK and what information did Balluku, Agaçi, Veliaj and Sako share with the investigators?

Voltage after leaving SPAK

If we read their reactions and statements after leaving SPAK, we see alarm, panic, but also excitement. First, the mayor Erion Veliaj, who went to testify before Balluk, Agac and Sako. When he left SPAK, he said, among other things, that "we had a total exhaustion of the incinerators issue", and that he believed that everything had been clarified. Put in the center of the accusations, Mr. Veliaj has denied being involved in the case of the Tirana incinerator with which, as he said, "the only thing that connected me was the cleaning of the city". For journalist and analyst Artur Zheji, Veliaj gave three strong messages after leaving SPAK. According to him, the mayor confirmed that there is a big rift within the majority. "The point is, what is happening in this majority? I want to open the game differently because Veliaj's speech when he left SPAK had three messages, the first one spoke about internal enemies, the second one had to do with journalism and the third term that he said at the beginning, that 'I have gone to my colleagues and we cooperate. If we decipher these as words are too many, there will be very big earthquakes after them, if they are not words spoken under pressure. The first earthquake is the crack within the majority, now it is no longer a conspiracy, but a reality stated by the mayor", stated Zheji.

Who did you burn in SPAK Balluku?

Unlike Veliaj, who started the attacks as soon as he left SPAK, Belinda Balluku appeared very different, so much so that it can be considered as one of the most excited people who ever came out of the special prosecution building, where she was called to give explanations in connection with the Tirana incinerator. The Minister of Energy was accompanied by her adviser, Florian Serjani, in the prosecutor's office and did not hide her smile when she approached the journalists. Many hints can be made about Belinda Balluku's smile at the exit of the prosecutor's office, but that she had a clear objective to charge her with the direct responsibility of tens of millions of "burnt" euros, this was evident from her words. The Deputy Prime Minister indicated that she has been cooperative with SPAK.

Balluku against Veliaj

The statement made by the deputy prime minister at the exit of the prosecutor's office leaves room for conjecture. Who are the bad guys and who are the good guys that Balluku talks about in the incinerator file? Who are the ones who have done the honest work and who should bear the unforgivable abuses? It is understood that when talking about Tirana's incinerator, the main headline is the Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, who according to Balluk's predecessor in office, Arben Ahmetaj, is the de facto owner of the incinerator. Both from the expression she showed at the exit of SPAK, as well as from the statement to the journalists, Belinda Balluku hinted that she has not spared the information she has on this issue. Likewise, the opposition in its latest denunciations says that Belinda Balluku and the state administrator blame Erjon Veliaj for the lack of control over the owners of the incinerators, which then ended with the theft of tens of millions of euros. "In addition to the news fabricated by the propaganda office of the Municipality of Tirana through the media paid by the incinerators, not only No. 2 of the government, Belinda Balluku, but above all the State Administrator, make the Municipality of Tirana, and specifically Erion Veliaj, responsible for blocking the operation of NJZP, and as a result the disappearance of 132 million euros in the defendant's direction, since even today as we speak, there is NO incinerator, and in the meantime the actual owner Erion Veliaj takes over the payment of 100% of the annual contractual obligation. It is clear as the light of the sun, that in all 3 moments that we analyzed the only common name is the de facto owner of Tirana Incinerator Erion Veliaj," said Belind Kelliçi.

Tricks and question marks

Po ashtu gazetari Klodian Tomorri është shprehur se Balluku ka patur vitet e fundit një përplasje të nëndheshme me Veliajn. Sipas tij në atë kohë, inceneratorët ishin krenaria e qeverisë. Edi Rama i cilësonte ata si një nga punët më të mira që kishte bërë qeveria e tij. Por Belinda Balluku dukej se kishte alergji nga djegësit. |Për tre vjet me radhë, nga janari i vitit 2019 deri në mars të vitit 2022, njësia e zbatimit të projektit nuk u mblodh asnjëherë, edhe pse ligji ja ngarkonte këtë përgjegjësi ministrisë së Infrastrukturës. Në mars të vitit 2022 u ndryshua vendimi i qeverisë duke ja hequr përgjegjësinë e mbetjeve Belinda Ballukut dhe duke e lënë këtë përgjegjësi jetim. Pra një puç i dyfishtë. Me pak fjalë, paratë pagueshin lumë nga buxheti, por askush nuk shkonte të shihte se inceneratori nuk kishte asnjë tullë. Përgjatë kësaj kohe, nëndhe ka patur jo pak tensione mes minstrisë së Infrastrukturës dhe Bashkisë së Tiranës. Por ky tension do të dilte në sipërfaqe kur në media u publikua një shkresë e ministrisë së Infrastrukturës, sipas të cilës Balluku i kishte kërkuar 3 herë pas tetorit të vitit 2022, Bashkisë së Tiranës që të sillte anëtarët e saj në njësinë e zbatimit të kontratës. Por në fakt këtu ngrihej një pikëpyetje. Mbetjet kishin dalë nga përgjegjësia e ministrisë së Infrastrukturës që në mars të vitit 2022, ndaj shkresat ngjanin më tepër si një alibi se sa shqetësim real për të zbatuar ligjin”, shkruan Tomorri.

Roli i Engjëll Agaçit

Engjëll Agaçi, after staying inside SPAK for 3 hours, added in his speech to the media that everyone should be available to justice. "I was called for the Tirana incinerator. I think this should not make a news story. We must be available to the justice bodies. Thank you!", he said. It is learned that Mr. Agaçi has given explanations about the procedures followed by the government, for the initial approval of the bonus to the company that undertook the construction of the incinerator, and then of the contract. The preliminary investigations of the Prosecutor's Office have revealed that the Council of Ministers gave the bonus of 8% to the company "Integrated Energy BV", based in the Netherlands, which was not registered as a subject in the National Business Center, as required by law, although a fact of this was pointed out to the Ministry of the Environment by the then Minister of State for relations with the Parliament, while remarks were also made by the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Justice. While, according to the acts of the Prosecutor's Office, the final contract is not related to "Integrated Energy BV", but to "Integrated Energy BV SPV", registered on the day of signing the contract, on August 31, 2017. Also, the accusations against him by the opposition have been multiple. According to deputy Jorida Tabaku, Agaçi is responsible for speeding up any procedure, for placing the Council of Ministers in the function of the incinerator company and has exceeded the powers that did not belong to the Council of Ministers. "The Council of Ministers does not have to approve the financial issues of the incinerator. The Ministry of Finance makes them as a shield, to remove individual responsibility and make it collective responsibility. Mr. Agaci is responsible because he made 17 decisions in the Council of Ministers within 10 days, he is responsible because he raised the entire government so that this contract was signed in record time," said Tabaku. One thing is certain, the situation in the majority is not good and the tensions are increasing. It is not surprising that Balluku and Agaçi have staged a coup against Veliaj, since accusations have been issued against the mayor of Tirana and from the former deputy prime minister Arben Ahmetaj who said that some of the actions of the mayor "are those of a de facto owner" of the incinerator .

The testimony of Emirjana Sako

On the other hand, it is suspected that the mayor Emirjana Sako stayed for two hours to give explanations about a contract for waste disposal at the Tirana incinerator that costs the citizens 10 million euros for the concessionaire and another 15 million euros for the transport. Emirjana Sako has been called as a witness in the parliamentary investigative commission for the incinerators set up at the request of the opposition. Faced with the questions of the Democratic Party deputies, Sako at that time left the meeting under the pretext that they were distorting his words. Despite calls from Democrats that she be prosecuted for refusing to testify, she left the room.
