"I don't know the reasons that led to the request for divorce"/ Meta filed a lawsuit in court to separate, this is what Kryemadhi declared! VOA: For several months, he has not lived in the family home

"I don't know the reasons that led to the request for divorce"/

In Albania, the former president of the Republic, Ilir Meta, announced on Thursday that he has started divorce proceedings from his wife Monika Kryemadhi, after 26 years of marriage and even more years of a political cohabitation. Mrs. Kryemadhi told the Voice of America that she did not prefer to comment on her husband's decision at the moment and that she first wanted to know the reasons that had led Mr. Meta to file for divorce, filed on Thursday in the Tirana Court.

In the evening, during the show "Çim Peka live" on Syri.Tv, former president Meta said that Mrs. Kryemadhi "is now his ex-wife", and that he had communicated the decision to their son Besar Meta, 24 years old, who according to him , several times he had asked both parents to find " a peaceful solution, as long as you have a lot of tensions and problems. I think I have found a very peaceful solution ", said Mr. Meta.

Mr. Meta has not been living in the family home for several months. Even in the request for divorce, he presented as a personal address, that of the Freedom Party. The shock of the relations between them was revealed publicly, when the reformation of the leadership structures of the Freedom Party left Mrs. Kryemadhi out of them. The two also exchanged controversies during the meetings of the Party's leadership forums.

The former president did not give any explanation for the reasons for the divorce request, but made it clear that for him, Mrs. Kryemadhi's attitude towards the Special Prosecutor's Office against Organized Crime and Corruption was unacceptable, at a time when she " was aware of all the activities of SPAK against her husband and all the attempts to blackmail various people against Meta ", he declared, adding that " Monika is closer to SPAK than to me. But SPAK cannot take Ilir Meta hostage, neither through his wife, nor through anyone else .

Last week, Mr. Meta stood for more than three hours in front of the investigators at the Special Prosecutor's Office. While it was not made clear for which investigation he had been summoned, in his subsequent statements, Mr. Meta implied that he had been questioned about matters related to his family's wealth. A property investigation is also being conducted against him and Mrs. Kryemadhi. The former president stated that he has never dealt with property or financial matters, for which he left the responsibility to his wife Monika Kryemadhi. He maintained the same position during the Thursday show, also repeating the accusations against the Special Prosecutor's Office. Meanwhile, in her statements, after the interrogation at the Special Prosecutor's Office, Ms. Kryemadhi was very cautious, stating that "the prosecutors are doing their job".

Mr. Meta and Mrs. Kryemadhi have represented a rare case in Albania, that of a couple with a high political commitment. Their journey started when they were in charge of the socialist youth organization FRESH, continuing then in the bosom of the socialist family until 2004, where both, together with another group of socialists, broke away, establishing Socialist Movement for Integration. A party led by Meta, where Mrs. Kryemadhi held high positions in the hierarchy of this political force, taking the reins in her hand, after the summer of 2017, Mr. Meta was elected president of the Republic. Two days after the end of his term as President of the State, in July 2022, Mr. Meta took over the leadership of the LSI, changing its name to the Freedom Party./VOA
