The testimony in SPAK that sinks Niko Pelesh for his connections with Klodian Zoto is revealed, the former director of Korça Waterworks reveals it before special prosecutors

The testimony in SPAK that sinks Niko Pelesh for his connections with Klodian

The current Minister of Defense, Niko Peleshi, may face problems with justice. The facts show that he cheated with his testimony before SPAK prosecutors when they asked him about a trip he made with Klodian Zoto to Italy in 2013, when he was the mayor of Korça. Peleshi stated about that trip that he did not know who had paid the expenses, but "I believe that the Korça Waterworks, since they invited me". Also, Peleshi denied that he had traveled with Klodian Zoto on that trip, which he had heard served as a kind of consultant for a paper project of the Korça Waterworks, for the construction of a photovoltaic plant.

The testimony of Niko Peleshi

"I have the impression that it was the same people, or the same group that also replaced the water meters, according to my perception, since I don't know exactly who they were in the contract. The person I remember is Claude Mertiri. Petrit and I have met Claude Mertir. In the context of finding this solution, Petriti told me that even he was not convinced what this thing was, but that we should go to Italy to see an applied solution of photovoltaic farms. As far as I remember, it must have been before the 2013 elections, maybe from the spring of this year, when I left together with Petriti for Italy. The trip was made by plane. I don't remember any other person being with us except me and Petrit. At this time, the offer was submitted to UKKO and Petriti told me to go to Italy. So Petriti had received the offer and they were working on the offer. In Italy, I don't remember which country we went to, but when we went there we met Claude Mertir and a couple of other Italian people who were from the company where we were going to see the applied solution of the photovoltaic plant. We slept in a hotel, I don't remember how long we stayed but I believe only one night. I have fixed that I was in the same hotel as Petrit but I don't remember other people. I don't remember if Claude Mertiri stayed in the same hotel as us. I don't remember the name of the hotel. Regarding the payments for the hotel stay and the plane ticket, i.e. for the entire trip, I did not make any payments as I was invited by the company UKKO Korçë and in this way I presume that the payments were made by this company. We saw in Italy a photovoltaic farm that produced energy and in my perception I noticed that since the application of the interested company a number of other procedures should be carried out. So it seemed that it was a procedure that would take time. I want to say that it was realized, I saw this work in UKKO Korçë around 2019, when I went to Korçë with the deputies of the commission of productive activities and among other things we also visited the UKKO enterprise and the used water treatment plant. When we visited this plant, we were also shown the photovoltaic plant that produced the energy for the used water plant. The presentation was like a success story from the UKKO company representatives. This was the first time I saw this project implemented. Meanwhile, from the moment we made this work trip to Italy until the conclusion of the contract and the completion of the procedures, several months have passed, because I remember when I left the position of the chairman", he said, among other things, before SPAK. So, Pelesi denied that he had traveled with Zoto.

The former director of the Waterworks reveals it

But another version is given by Petrit Tare, the former director of the Korça Waterworks and the organizer of that trip. "On this visit, I traveled with Klodian Zoto and Niko Pelesh, from Tirana via Rinas towards Bari. Then we traveled there with a rental car to Rome... The car was paid for by Klodiani, who when they got off at the Bari airport, went and got the car and then came back taking everyone and then they headed to Rome ... My plane ticket was paid for by Klodian Zoto, while for Niko Pelesh, I don't remember", he said.
