"You know better about these things, but you won't talk!"/ Debate breaks out in the studio, Rakipi is caught with Fevziu about contraband oil and oligarchs
Written by SOT.COM.AL 20 Mars 2023
In the show "Te Paespozuarit", the journalist Blendi Fevziu was invited, who was asked by Ylli Rakipi about the oligarchs of Albania, contraband oil and businessmen appointed "from above".
Ylli Rakipi: Albania is divided into 4-5 people who have the money, tenders, concessions, use natural resources, everything. There are businessmen who take half of Albania.
It seems that even the political people cooperate with them. We have 5-6 people who were born by Berisha and strengthened by Edi Rama.
Blendi Fevziu: They have been made since the 90s. The more concentrated the economy the more…
Ylli Rakipi: Some do not appear at all. They took and covered Sahat in Tirana, it no longer seems...
Blendi Fevziu: Those who build, build on private land, with state permission. The business in Albania is not the business of Russia or the countries where they got rich on the basis of the properties and assets of the Soviet Union. Albanian businessmen did not start like this.
Ylli Rakipi: Even here, oil is a monopoly. Do you know how much oil is smuggled into Albania? Less oil is used here than in Kosovo, where there are fewer vehicles.
Blendi Fevziu: I don't know, I don't know this field.
Ylli Rakipi: In Kosovo, more oil is consumed than here, having twice as few cars.
Blendi Fevziu: If it is true, it should be investigated.
Ylli Rakipi: Should those who do it be investigated?
Blendi Fevziu: I am saying that our businessmen are different from the Russians. There is no case that an Albanian businessman took over the enterprises of communism and got rich.
Ylli Rakipi: O Fevzi, the businessman is taken by COVID and the governors lie down for fear that they will run away and the money remains inside...
Blendi Fevziu: How do I know this...
Ylli Rakipi: You know better than all of this, but you won't talk.
Blendi Fevziu: I have neither dealt with anyone nor approached anyone, with the exception of someone I have a friend. I have no relationship with the others.
Ylli Rakipi: Saliu first and Edi Rama afterwards, they really like this, it seems to them that this is how the country should be run, without competition. Businessmen are appointed from above.
Blendi Fevziu: This is a scandal. Who has a discussion about this? It's scandalous.
