Attacks on the Vlorë-Fier highway, two people are executed with 60 bullets, another is injured, Lena and the brother of Hakim Xhezo, involved in the murder of Arben Beqiraj in 2019
Written by Dario VELAJ 19 Gusht 2022
A mafia assassination took place yesterday in the Vlorë-Fier axis, where 37-year-old Shpati Lena and 34-year-old Hakim Xhezo were executed with 60 Kalashnikov bullets. In the vehicle in which they were traveling (Mercedez Benz) there was another person, who was injured and is in a serious condition. But, so far the blue uniforms have not revealed his identity. According to the investigative group, they were chased by a "BMË" car stolen in Durrës with Italian license plates and were shot at the moment when the two vehicles were parallel and close to each other. It is believed that 3 people participated in the assassination: 2 hitmen and the driver. Initially, they fired 30 bullets in the direction of 3 people in the "Benz" and after passing the vehicle where Lena and Xhezo were, they shot another 30 times in the direction of the front window of the "Benz". The whole action of killing Shpati Lena and Hakim Xhezo lasted 2 minutes. The victim's vehicle traveled 200 m and fell into a canal on the side of the highway. Some time later, the blue uniforms of Vlora found the car of the assassins burned with 3 Kalashnikovs inside the "BMË" in the village of Cerven. The investigation team's conviction that the assassination was carried out by professional killers is related to the direction of the bullets. Regarding the causes of the event, the police have raised two tracks: the possible disruption of drug deals and the main one is the murder of a local owner Arben Beqiraj in the Old Beach on August 4, 2019, which involved the brother of Hakim Xhezo, Eduarti and Shpati Lena herself. The victims were known by the nicknames "Bushi" and "Shpati".

Details: Lena was driving in an armored vehicle, yesterday she was killed in a simple car
An interesting detail is that the victims Shpati Lena and Hakim Xhezo always drove in an armored vehicle. The fact that they were killed yesterday with a simple "Mercedez-Benz" car, not modified to resist bullets, shows that the assassins were well informed about the movements of Lena and Xhezo. There are doubts that they may have been betrayed by one of them known to the hand that ordered the elimination of the 37-year-old and his friend. Since her release from prison on March 25 of this year, Lena was constantly guarded and traveled around Vlora in an armored vehicle for fear of being guarded.

After going to the bar, they argued with Arben Beqiraj and started shooting with guns. As a result of the shooting, Arben Beqiraj died on the spot, while his son Egerti and nephew Nesim Hodaj were injured. According to the investigations, it was Eduart Xhezo who killed the 49-year-old businessman Arben Beqiraj. The three people left after the incident as they were declared wanted. On October 30, 2019, more than 2 months after the serious crime, Eduart Xhezo was arrested in Durrës.
