The brother of Minister of Interior Affairs Fatmir Xhafaj, Agron Xhafaj has filed a lawsuit at the Prosecution Office against Democrat MPs Alibeaj and Salianji, as well as legal counsel Gazmend Bardhi for falsely reporting a crime.

Via a a criminal lawsuit at the Tirana Prosecution Office, Agron Xhafaj, now known as Geron, requested that the prosecution investigate the three opposition representatives that published a wiretap showing that Agron Xhafaj continues to be involved in drug trafficking, yesterday.

According to Xhafaj, MPs Alibeaj, Salianji and Bardhi have falsely reported a crime, per article 305 of the Albanian Criminal Code.

According to the Democratic Party, the two people in the wiretap recording, who speak of organizing a “cannabis trip,” are Agron Xhafaj and one of his former collaborators, who was released from jail in Italy, where he had been convicted for being a member of Xhafaj’s gang, and had returned to Albania.

PD’s wiretaps have been handed over to the Prosecution Office in order to confirm their authenticity.
