The complete SPAK file for Ilir Beqaj is cleared, from the conflict of interest between the businessman Ilir Rrapaj, to the violation of the procedures in granting the "Sterilization" concession, the special prosecutors scan the assets of the former Minister of Health
Written by Rigels Seliman 20 Nëntor 2023
The Special Court has set today's noon for the questioning session of the former Minister of Health, Ilir Beqja, against whom security measures have been imposed, mandatory appearance and ban on exiting the country, due to investigations into the sterilization concession. The session will be led by the judge of preliminary investigations, Erjon Bani, following the request made by the Special Prosecutor's Office. Security measures for Beqaj were approved by the Special Court on November 16, based on the prosecution's request. So far from the SPAK investigation, he is the highest official under accusation for the violations found with the contract of the public-private partnership of sterilization worth 100 million euros, after the arrest in August of this year of the businessman Ilir Rrapaj and his deputy in the Ministry of Health, Klodian Rrjepaj. SPAK's investigations have revealed violations in the procedures for awarding the concession, as is suspected with the sole purpose of declaring the companies of Ilir Rrapaj and the Italian citizen, Umbro Staçini, the winners.
Details from the file
Meanwhile, sources indicate that the procedures followed for granting the concession have been violated by the Ministry of Health. According to SPAK, the open procedure with negotiation is in violation of the law, since at that time the legislation provides for an open procedure and not with negotiation, so that other companies could also participate. According to the prosecution body, Ilir Beqaj, in his capacity as minister, should have found the violation of the law for the way the procedures were carried out. As the Minister of Health, Beqaj should have ascertained the conflict of interest between the businessman Ilir Rrapaj and his deputy Klodian Rrapaj. Another violation according to SPAK is the fact that, in the capacity of the holder, Ilir Beqaj should have established that the costs of the concession procedures have been inflated by the Union of Economic Operators, which undertook to sterilize the surgical sets. Based on investigations with written evidence, SPAK has doubts that the company that won the concession was favored by the members of the Bid Evaluation Commission and this was also allowed by the former minister Beqaj. He is accused of the criminal offense of abuse of office committed in cooperation and the measure "obligation to appear" and "ban on leaving the country" has been assigned to him. Therefore, we recall that in the first file for the concession of sterilization of surgical sets, SPAK also established the connection between Beqaj and businessman Ilir Rrapaj. They have traveled together several times to Italy and Vienna. There were also exchanges of e-mail messages between them. But in addition to the corruption investigations, "Inequality in tenders" and "Abuse of duty", it is learned that the SPAK Special Prosecutor's Office has launched a parallel investigation, with the aim of tracing the assets of the former Minister of Health, Ilir Beqaj. On the other hand, the decision of the Special Court for Corruption and Organized Crime by order of SPAK for the former Minister of Health, Ilir Beqaj, has received the attention of the international media. The American network ABC News and the Associated Press write that Albania's former health minister, who is being investigated for suspected corruption, must report to the police and has been banned from leaving the country. Abc Neë s writes in its article that the Prosecutors of the Special Court Against Corruption and Organized Crime of the country said that Ilir Beqaj must appear at the prosecutor's office every Friday and cannot use his passport or identity card to leave the country .
