How the “shark” of justice, Alaudin Malaj, became step by step rich with the gavel of justice, the number of houses, cars and bank accounts. His wife received two apartments as a gift from her father-in-law. Anti-mafia law does not take action.
Alaudin Malaj and Gjin Gjoni are not accidentally seen by the public as the two biggest “beasts” of corruption of the justice which is being destroyed by the Americans. Both have used their wives to justify their assets in relation to their legitimate incomes, and they have managed to escape justice which they are still part of. Only in Albania justice produces rich people. In any normal democratic country you hear nothing about judges and prosecutors who are “sheikhs”. In Albania, the judges make a pile through the criminal “gavel”, and they try to launder a part of that money, to turn it into legal, through various lies, starting from the activities of their wives in businesses, maneuvers with loans, debts, buying cheap properties and selling them at higher prices, ghost companies etc. How come the wives of these judges are more successful in business and make money as if by magic? However, the end of this judges who became “sheikhs” by hitting the gavel, is near. Their assets have been investigated by Vetting and US-EU representatives in the International Monitoring Operation, while their dismissal is just a matter of weeks.
The judge of the Appellate Court, Alaudin Malaj declared his assets for the first time in 2003, like all other declarant subjects. In 2003, Alaudin Malaj declared a 106 m2 half-house, and his salary as a judge, ALL 946 800. His assets in 2003 are normal. But what happens next? Some years later, Alaudin Malaj became one of the richest people of the Albanian justice. In 2004 he bought a car worth € 16 thousand. In 2005, he declared incomes from the rent of an apartment, amounting to USD 8 thousand. It is not known where this apartment came from, when Malaj declared only one house. In 2008, he bought an apartment in Durrës worth € 21 thousand. One year later, this apartment is sold for € 31 thousand, by earning € thousand.
In 2009, Alaudin Malaj, started massive money laundering. In addition to selling his apartment worth € 31 thousand, which he had bought one year ago for € 21 thousand, in 2009, Alaudin Malaj all of a sudden declared one business in his wife’s name. Not only he declared the business, but he also declared ALL 36 million as a profit. In 2010, he bought two other apartments within the year, one worth € 100 thousand and the other worth € 35 thousand. But during this year, his wife is granted a loan in the name of Algan, worth € 250 thousand. In 2011, he bought a car worth € 53 thousand.
In 2012, Alaudin Malaj exceeds the limit. He says his father gave a 122 m2 apartment in Tirana to his wife, as a gift, and another 96.6 m2 apartment in Tirana. Where did Alaudin Malaj’s father find these two apartments? How can he add the apartments as if they were packets of cigarettes? This apartment, which was allegedly a gift from her father-in-law, was sold by Malaj’s wife in 2014, so 2 years later, for € 120 thousand. This is clearly money laundering. However, the anti-mafia law is not taking action on this case. But this is not enough. During 2012, his wife also sold a car for € 60 thousand. In 2013, another event takes place. His wife now declared ALL 190 million within a year as incomes as a notary. From business, she becomes a notary and she earns such big amounts of money in one year.
In 2014, another surprise is revealed. Alaundin Malaj’s wife sells the apartment her father-in-law gave to her for 120,000 euros. She says she also sold a villa in Kavaja for 150 thousand euros. But it is not known where this villa came from, as it had not been declared before. Even in this case the law enforcement authorities remain silent. But during this year, she had given a loan worth 250,000 euros, but it is not known where she took the money from. Later, Alaundin Malaj’s assets take on another dimension. His wife points out that by giving a 59.7 m2 store for rent in Vlora , she won 24 thousand Euros within the year. It is strange what was the interest in paying 24,000 euros a year for a 59.7 m2 shop, when this person could buy the entire shop for three years’ rent. Furthermore, his wife sets up a company in Kosovo to launder the money, this time away from the attention of Albanian authorities and the media. It is time when the justice reform is in the horizon. For the activity of Malaj couple in Kosovo and the laundered money there we will talk in the next article. That’s it for today.
