MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 5TH PLENUM OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF ALP ON OCTOBER 14 AND 14, 1982
The second session
VELI LLAKAJ: Friends asked about the sliding theory. I defended a diploma in 1970-1971, “On the operation of passing the corps from the war to the regular front, to the partisan war.” That degree is still there today. It does not have the title “Retreat and Slide”, but I made the transition of a brigade to partisan warfare, keeping the front regular. They are the documents. Such have been the theses of the Defense Council and I have adhered to them.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: There is a rule in all high schools that student diplomas are stored in the school archive. Where is your degree? Comrade Hekuran has said that he is not.
VELI LLAKAJ: The diploma, Comrade Ramiz, is in the Ministry of National Defense.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: But why in the Ministry and not in the Academy? Who withdrew him from the Academy?
VELI LLAKAJ: I received my diploma from the Academy.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Why did you withdraw it and when did you withdraw it?
VELI LLAKAJ: I pulled it after Mehmet Shehu’s suicide (noise in the hall).
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: But why did you withdraw him?
VELI LLAKAJ: Here, let me tell you why I pulled it. While reading in the archives, I found a material, a letter that Mehmet Shehu made to Beqir Balluku about the black material, about the theory of sliding. He recommended that this letter be worked with cadres. On the basis of this I have found a material, it was given to me at that time by the General Staff, the official documents are there, and I have received it. There was a speech by Comrade Enver and an appendix of messages given by Mehmet Shehu.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Who gave you those materials?
VELI LLAKAJ: It was given to me by the General Staff.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Which one in particular?
VELI LLAKAJ: Vehbi Hoxha, Rrahman Parllaku and Ernest Jakova.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: On this basis did you graduate?
VELI LLAKAJ: On this basis I got my degree.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Right?!
VELI LLAKAJ: And I then searched for this material because it was lost, it disappeared. I asked because I did not know if Comrade Enver’s statement was there, or not. This material was later found.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Well, why did you withdraw your diploma then; what did you need
VELI LLAKAJ: I withdrew my diploma to see how this issue was handled there.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: But why did you not return it to where you took it?
VELI LLAKAJ: Yes, he must have returned.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: No, no, you did not return it.
VELI LLAKAJ: I do not know, she must have returned, yes and if she has not returned she is in the secretary. I found these materials; I also found the discussion of Comrade Enver that he held for the “Drini” exercise and on the basis of this…!
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: The plenum of the Central Committee for the enemy Beqir Balluku was held, you in that meeting of the plenum received a remark.
VELI LLAKAJ: Yes.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: The enemy Mehmet Shehu was here and removed as if he knew nothing. After the plenum ended, did you find a material and send it to Mehmet Shehu regarding the sliding theory, where does it say that Mehmet Shehu is the author? And he said to you, “Why is he not gone?” I have ordered this material to disappear”?!
VELI LLAKAJ: No, no.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: How not? I do not say now, after the suicide of Mehmet Shehu, I am talking about then, after the plenum where Beqir Balluku was convicted.
VELI LLAKAJ: I understand you. On the basis of this work I went and asked Mehmet Shehu, where is this material. He told me that they were the words of Comrade Enver. This issue has to do with what Comrade Ali said, those Martial Arts has been worked on, the chapter of strategic withdrawal, and there the words of Comrade Enver have been inserted, on the basis of the material we now find in the Central Committee Archive and read with the main cadres. These are exactly the treatments. Let’s also look at the theoretical part of the diploma, I have thus treated and quoted the sayings of Comrade Enver. I therefore asked Mehmet Shehu and he introduced this in Martial Arts.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: We do not understand at all.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: No, Veli, Comrade Enver did not say anything, I do not know from these things you say, (laughter).
COMRADE TEFTA CAMI: In the plenum of the Central Committee of the Party when Beqir Balluku was convicted, Veli Llakaj was asked to talk about these problems and he simply made a slippery self-criticism. Why did not he show this issue?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: This is the question of Comrade Shefqet Peçi.
COMRADE TEFTA CAMI: Why didn’t he show that he also has a hand in ‘Sliding Theory’?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Answer, answer (addresses Veli Llakaj).
VELI LLAKAJ: This is it, Comrade Enver. I denounced this, worked on Martial Arts and inserted exactly those quotes that are from the material you have discussed. Work has been done on this basis.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: What are you talking about? You have introduced that material to Martial Arts. You kept it and when you saw that Mehmet Shehu was peeled off, you went and took it and put it in your safe.
VELI LLAKAJ: No, I do not have it in my safe. It’s in the secretary.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: Why not leave him there?
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: She should have been at the Academy.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: Why not leave him there?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Are there other proposals, comrades, that a proposal has been made? Since there is not, then we vote on the proposal of comrade Xhelil Gjoni. Who is for, to raise his hand … Against? No (all friends agree with the proposal).
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Comrade Veli Llakaj is expelled from the Party for serious mistakes. Do you have anything else?
FRIENDS: To clarify the problem of tanks.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Nazari has that problem.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Let Veliu stay, because we need to clarify that problem.
COMRADE MITI NITO: Since Comrade Nazar as Deputy Minister was in charge of special weapons, to clarify the issue that arose regarding the tank brigade that received orders from Mehmet Shehu not to move Sauk tanks without his order. The question arises: why did Comrade Nazar not inform the Commander-in-Chief, the Party, about such a thing, that this is almost like a coup preparation.
(Comrade Enver says to Veli Llakaj: Veli, stay there and talk, without having time to leave).
COMRADE MITI NITO: Second, to say more openly Comrade Nazar what they talked about with the enemy Mehmet Shehu when the latter, before committing suicide, called him home. He told us that he allegedly called her only for the boy’s bride if he had seen her in the cafe, but we also came across the ammunition scaling table which is very secret, yes there are others maybe, so there is something very dark.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Shall I ask you a question, Veli? Who has the right to see the ammunition scaling table? Does the Prime Minister have this right?! Memorie.al
