Exclusive: The mayors who stole more than anyone else. The black list and the ranking of Dako and Qazim Sejdini



Exclusive: The mayors who stole more than anyone else.The black list and the ranking of Dako and Qazim Sejdini

  At the top of the list is the Municipality of Tirana with 466 corruptive tenders, followed by Voltana Ademi, Qazim Sejdini and Vangjush Dako, while the prosecution is asleep.

 Rama’s government and its branches, according to official reports, steal and cause financial damage to the state budget amounting to 1.7 billion euros each year. At the top of the pyramid of the state budget thievery and public assets robbery are the ministries and municipalities. Most of the theft is done through tenders and concessions, but also through rental contracts, favoring tax evasion and other abuses. In front of this mountain of thefts is therotten justice, which deals with trivial issues, but not with the heads of corruption. No minister or mayor has come before justice for these abuses. This is also why the European Union is blocking the opening of negotiations every year.

But which of the mayors has stolen most since 2016? Just because he runs the largest municipality, Erion Veliaj is at the top. The Municipality of Tirana, during the last three years, has conducted 466 corruptive tenders. They are considered corrupt because they were either given without a competition, or all companies were disqualified so that the clientelist company could win them,or absurd criteria were set, or there was no difference between the limit fund and the winning bid. In all cases, the goal is the same: Stealing through clientelistcompanies. Veliaj is followed bythe mayor of Shkodra, Voltana Ademi. This shows that all parties steal in the same way.

QazimSejdini in Elbasan ranks third in the list of mayors who have stolen most of the tenders. The next one is Vangjush Dako, with 99 corrupt tenders. At a time when Lulzim Basha said Dakos’s arrest would be a matter of hours, the Durrës’s “behemoth” keeps stealing quietly. Dako was put in the United States blacklist for corruption and illegal property. The next ones are, Sotiraq Filo in Korca with 81 corruptive tenders and Mayor of Vlora, Dritan Leli, with 78 corruptive tenders./Pamfleti

The “godfather” of PPP Milot – Balldren and Edi Rama, taken hostage by Sali Berisha’s oligarch.




It is surprising that the “blameless brave man”, GramozRuçi, scowled and removed from the voting the request to dismiss his friend, Arben Malaj; in the agenda of the session dictated by the oligarchs, Rrok Gjoka, Ndue Kola and Milo Gjikuria, instead of removing the project-crime of 2 thievish concessions, presented by the unscrupulous mafia government gang“Rama-Balla-Gjiknuri-Ahmetaj”, who during the 6 years of power have stolen 1.3 billion euros from Albanians through fictitious tenders and PPPs for 10-45 years.

During the last session, the parliament of Rilindja’s“obedient” MPs, who were bought and sold 100 times, committed a serious crime against the national economy and welfare, by voting for the huge theft of 342 million euros, staged and ordered as a PPP, by the government’s mafia gang: Rama-Balla-Gjiknuri-Ahmetaj.”
After voting in the parliament, Minister Balluku started the procedures of drafting a concession contract with the oligarchs, uncle-nephew, Rrok Gjoka and Ndue Kola, hidden behind his brother, Agim Kola, who appears as the owner of “AKN” company, which was given the 13-year concession for the construction and maintenance of Milot-Balldren road worth 260 million euros, for a length of 17.3 km, 4 times more expensive than the real value.
What is scandalous is the fact that is that this road of “gold” with the price set by Rama, which is given to the former Socialist Party’s deputy, Ndue Kola, under the name of a ghost company belonging to his brother, Agim Kola, according to the draft voted in parliament which Ruçi did not read during the session, turns out to be built by another ghost company “BardhKonstruksion”, owned by Ndue Kola’s brother, established and registered at the National Registering Center on 29.10.2018 with no recordings of any other works, and a balance sheet stating “zero” capital.
According to the register in the National Registering Center, this ghost firm was deliberately established for Milot-Balldren Concession, 7 months before the parliament would votefor the concession; and is 100% owned by Bardhok Kola, who is the brother of the owner of AKN company, Agim Kola and the former deputy Ndue Kola of Milot-Balldrenroad, who are the nephews of the oligarch of “Arbri Road”, Rrok Gjoka and relatives of Gaz Demi.
According to the concessionary draft, voted in the parliament, which GramozRuçi“forgot” to read; it turns out that even the concession’s road “Yacht Harbor-OrikumShënElizë Bridge (Dukat)”, which is given to the oligarch Milo Gjikuria, will be constructed by the ghost company “Orikum-Llogara Company Ltd”, which does not appear registered neitherin the National Registering Center, tax administration, social insurance, nor in the register of infrastructure businesses in Balluku’s ministry.
The two concessions given to Ndue Kola and Milo Gjikurijust for decoration, are made a law with 79 deputy votes for the Milot-Balldren road and 77 deputy votes for Orikum-Himara road, but in fact, they were just thefts covered by the parliament laws, made by the mafia group Rama-Balla-Gjiknuri-Ahmetaj, who used the mask Ndue Kola and Milo Gjikuri, who receive only 10% of the profits and 20% of VAT reimbursement.


1. In addition to Edi Rama and his group of PPP realtors in the government dome, the main beneficiary is SandërFrangaj, Edi Rama’s “the godfather”, for the 260 million euro concession in Milot-Balldren and a relative and construction partner in inert soil transport, with the oligarch Ndue Kola, the ShkëlqimFusha and BashkimUlaj.
2. We will bring evidence that the oligarch, or Milo Gjikuria“the wolf”, is just the “facade” of the theft at the Orikum-Himara Road Concession, since the true beneficiaries are family members of the prime minister and 2 deputies of Vlora, his middlemen.
3. We will bring evidence regarding the origin of 342 million euros, which will be found by Bardhok Kola from Mëzi in Puka, who lives in a 72 m2 (1 floor) house in Bathore, and who does not even have a personal bank account number; but we will also give evidence on the origin of the millions of euros found by Milo Gjikuria, who has 48 loans transferred to 210 warrantors and 53 debts from 300-500 thousand euros to smugglers and criminals, including Geron Xhafaj ( 280 thousand euros from drugs); who “knock” on his door very often, but who are “kept under the control” of the former mayor of Vlora, realtor ArdiVeliu.
4. We will bring evidence aboutthe ties of Etilda Gjonaj from Puka, Donika Prela who is married in Puka and Arta Marku, from Mirdita and who is a niece in Puka with the oligarchs from Puka Ndue Kola, Agim Kola, Bardhok Kola and Rrok Gjoka./Pamfleti

The whole state at the service of “fines”: Mafia business of soil transportation intimidates construction




Part of the dirty business of 3 landfill sites of urban waste in Tirana, Elbasan and Fier is also the monopoly “trust” of soil transportation and construction waste, which is carried out by a special decision of the government and through violence from municipalities, taxes, IKMT (National Territorial Defense Inspectorate), state police and strong groups, who observe and threaten construction investors, speaking on behalf of the prime minister, ministers, deputies, chiefs police officers and directorswho are known to be part of Edi Rama’s clan, while these “strong men” are allowed to use cars with false plates.

In addition to the threats and corruption from the “bosses” of power, construction businesses are being intimidated and extorted by “Mërtiri -Nallbani-Zoto” band, the first two exponents with criminal precedents in Albania and abroad, and the third, Klodian Zoto, the top thief of “Telecom” with a criminal record, a concessionaire of 3 landfill sites alongsideTirana-Durrës-Elbasan-Fier-Vlorë area.

According to the facts denounced by “PAMFLETI”, it is the transportation of soil and inertwhich are a ‘waste” coming from the construction activity, which, until the end of May 2015, each business had its own means of disposing them, by taking them to the “waste collection points”, designated by municipalities and former municipalities, according to Law No. 9010, dated 13.2.2003, amended by Law No.10 137, dated 11.5.2009.

However, since June 2015, construction companies of any type of private and public investment facility are obliged to dispose the inert and soil waste only through the concessionary company “Integrated Energy B.V” (3 landfills of Tirana-Fier-Elbasan), since this is how Edi Rama has decided in the DCM No. 575, dated 24. 06. 2015, making thus a decision above the law!

This clientelist decision was approved to mask the violent extortionaffectingconstruction businesses through taxes, police, IKMT, in the interest of “Mërtiri-Nallbani-Zoto” mafiagang, who have turned this type of thievery into business monopoly, since the companies, feeling horrified and threatened with fines, seizuresanddeprivation of licenses, are forced to make the transportation of soils only through this gang.

This scheme has nothing to do with environmental standards, but only with millions of Euros profits, because the profits are divided this way: Mertiri and Nallbani get 60% of the value coming from the transportation, while Klodian Zoto who has 3 landfills and the vehicles gets 40% of the transportation value and records the amount of soil and inert as waste in the landfills, so that he can getpaid from the municipalities.

He who invented this kind of business, with open criminal offense “impositionofproperty seizure using official stamps and acts”, is Benard Nallbani from Fier, convicted of trafficking of women and drugs in Italy, with strong ties to Albanian politics.

Meanwhile KlodianZoto, the “penguin” of the concession of the 3 landfills where 70% of the profit is received by Linda Rama, Vilma Nushi, Erjon Veliaj and Damian Gjiknuri, has old tieswith the latter since before 2005 when Zoto was an advisor at the Ministry of Defense, where Gjiknuri was Secretary General and PandeliMajko, the Minister.

Former Finance Minister Arben Ahmetajis represented in this business by Klodian Mërtiri from Tepelena, the“Greek” drug trafficker, family member of the deputy Alekt Hyseni, who also has his own “share” in the transportation of soils.

Today, we are publishing three of the schemes that are openly used by the “Mertiri-Nallbani-Zoto” band to carry out the transportation business of inert waste and soils, whose value is tens of millions of euros a year.

Here are the 4 mafia schemes at the service of soil and inert waste gang

  1. Mayors in Tirana, Durrës, Elbasan, Librazhd, Lushnja, Fier, Roskovec, Patos, Vlora and in the municipalities around the landfills have mobilized municipal police groups that control and force the builders, even investors, to transport the soils and waste through the companies of the landfills, introducing them the gang representatives: Klodain Mërtiri and Benard Nallbani, who supervise the companies’ trucks so they will not be diverted.
  2. The two “ruffians”, KlodianMërtiri and BenardNallbani, have set up surveillance groups as private agents(detectives), with false license plates and anonymous individuals tracing business trucks, and reporting any diversion case to the municipal police.
  3. When it comes to the confrontation with the owners or business drivers, the intervention is made by Benard Nallbani, who, with Ardi Veliu’s permission, has access to the state traffic police (available groups) to intervene and act through “their methods”.
  4. If the construction companies refuse to transport the soils with the band of the “three musketeers” in the landfills, the mayors force them to take the waste to 5-6 collection points, intentionally approved for threats, to the mountainous and suburban areas of the municipalities, with dangerous streets and at a distance 5-15 times bigger than thelandfills of KlodianZoto “the penguin”.



  • Who are the true bosses behind this gang that is intimidating construction in the capital, who are using these individuals with criminal precedents in Albania and abroad?
  • How much is the monthly amount of soil and inert waste that is disposed with this scheme and how many millions are lost by the state?
  • What punitive attitude do the heads of IKMT from the municipalities and prefectures take to private entities and what are their deals with the “penguin” of the landfills?
  • Where are the 187 temporary landfills of inert waste, set up by municipalities outside and far from landfills, as a means of pressure on construction businesses?
  • How much money is recorded each month for fictitious volumes of soils and inert waste allegedly transported to landfills?
  • How many denunciations have been made to the police and prosecution against this violent thievery and against the two “ruffians” Klodian Mërtiri and Benard Nallbani, and what is ArtaMarku’s and Sandër Lleshaj’s attitude to this case?
