DAILY MEETING OF THE SECRETARY FRIENDS OF THE CENTRAL PARTY COMMITTEE
OCTOBER 22, 1982
In this meeting was discussed about the measures to be taken for the protection of possible landing points on our coast.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: People write things the way they think. They do their job. I made the letter, he says, I sent it to Kadri Hazbi. I also wrote a letter to the Central Committee. But where is this letter then?!
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes?!
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: That when a letter comes to me, in it I write something, I give an opinion, a message.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Therefore that letter must be found.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Let Hekuran take this job, and find it. Yes and he, where will he find it ?!
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: If he sent the letter, it should be in the archive.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: It will be in the archive if the archive is in order, if it has a different storage system; it may or may not be.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: That he may have been burned.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well, the letter may have been burned.
COMRADE SIMON STEFANI: Maybe, so many years have passed since then.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Of course some important materials can be burned after a while.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Somewhere the note that they have come, or something else must be.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: There should definitely be some data, or a note of what has been done with it. So a note should be somewhere to refer to in case of need.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: That’s right.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: We are obliged to do these things by hand, because elsewhere, they do them with a computer.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: As elsewhere, the data is recorded on the computer.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Data on millions of people have been entered into these computers. I once sang in a book about how information about a murderer was found on a computer. It turned out in the book that the data recorded by the computers, for a while kept them in their memory. Then they passed it to their center, which is so large that it holds the data of all computers. In the book, it is told how such a computer center was asked for the name of a person, for whom the characteristics were given. The center had immediately given him three names which had similar characteristics, so he was looking for another characteristic. Drink a lot, told the center and Thracian, she immediately gave the name of the person wanted.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Look, look, do they have things in detail?!
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: They have them in detail, yes. Tell me the special feature of the person you are looking for, and from the computer center we have three names here. Drink a lot, they told him. The answer came immediately.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: That’s right, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Of course here with us, these things are not done yet. Ohuu we are still far. But at least, there is order in the archives we have. Well, what do those of us who have been brought in speak?
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes, Comrade Enver, even Feçori has started to speak a little.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, he will definitely start too.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes, yes, he started talking to ………
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Mehmet… ?!
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: No, of Kadri. It started, as it were, to blow for him.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, yes, Kadriu can be the mayor of Feçor.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes, I can. It has started to say a few things about the platform issue. On the basis of the platform of the Politburo. Kadriu, after making additions, gave special instructions.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Has he made a new platform… ?!
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Has made interpretations as it were, writing “note number one”, or “note number two”, etc.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, yes.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Feçori now brings it out to him, and says that Kadriu made some distortions.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Has he distorted the platform… ?!
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: D.m.th., such things, has Feçori started saying now… ?!
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, yes, he speaks, he speaks.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Then, it is a good thing that he is talking.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Good thing, i.e., this one started too.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: It started as i. (recording is interrupted).
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: ……. to be done with points that the enemies cannot go down to Karaburun.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: That’s right, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: They cannot even go down to Llogara. Thus in all these mountain ranges, which stretch for miles, it is not necessary to line up hundreds of guards. In this region, we will set up observation posts, which of course cost. Therefore, we must look at the issue of their cost, because we can create an inflation situation, which will cause us difficulties, and lead us to reduce the standard of living of the working masses.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: The costs for these measures are above plan.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Therefore, let us take once from the army those 600 people that we have said. But it is not just a matter of contingents. Has Prokopi talked to his friends about this ?!
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: He talked.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: That Prokopi is new to the task entrusted to you and it will take some time until he gets to work well. While the others, know these jobs.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: I know Comrade Enver. Prokopi talked to his friends, and they formed a group of specialists.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: I have the issue, I have friends here: the border should have observation points, but not the whole border and no point in ten kilometers. No, this cannot be done. The border point should be in those places where there is a possibility of landing. There, there must be a post office that also has its own point of discovery and observation. Therefore, these places should be identified and designated, where there are favorable opportunities and conditions for landing of saboteurs. Such places, for example, can be the beaches of Kakome, Vuno, Borsh, a little higher still, etc. Then exactly in these regions, we should have a center, point, or observation post. We cross from Kakomeja and come to Saranda. Here the saboteur cannot come down and enter our land. So the coast is an area that needs to be studied carefully, on the issue of setting up border posts. Then one must see Vlora, i.e., the Sazan region, and beyond. What about this work, should we look to Velipoja, and not to the north?!
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes, Comrade Enver, as far as Velipoja is concerned.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: This must be studied. That he says that they will enter Durrës, but in Durrës, no one can enter.
FRIENDS: In Durrës, no one can enter.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: They cannot enter either Durrës or Vlora.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: They cannot enter there. The word is from Palla Tail onwards.
COMRADE SIMON STEFANI: No, they cannot enter there either, because the army guards them.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: They are guarded by the army. What if we friends, they fall asleep, they push us in every direction. They can also climb Karaburun.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: For example, did those four people, Germans, who were sailing in a boat, not come to see the border?! Nay, but they came and went in, and there they seized our soldiers.
COMRADE SIMON STEFANI: Yes, our soldiers were captured there.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: So we have to look at this work in a slightly rational way. Along with these forces, which should not be large, the Voluntary Forces that we have along the entire coast should be set in motion. It is a new military task for one or two of them to join the patrol guards of the regular border guards every night and take up a fighting position.
Thus, instead of all border points or Posts being composed only of soldiers, we should also have them with volunteers, i.e., and with the Voluntary Forces of People’s Self-Defense. In this way, they are trained as border guards, and the state does not spend much. After all, one is a soldier of the units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, while the other is a soldier of the regular service. So in this respect, a combination of human forces must be made.
What is lost is the village of Dhërmi that two or three boys or men, together with the soldiers; have under surveillance at night one kilometer of the territory near their village. Therefore, I think that this whole issue should be viewed with this eye. That it is about no small expenses, and not to be seen simply as a matter of protection and vigilance. Both issues, to be looked at carefully, and the limit to be guaranteed, and the costs to be viewed to be as limited as possible.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: As it was said, it is about 60 million ALL.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: And another 70 or 80 million will be needed by the army if we activate it for this work as well. Then, 100 million ALL are made.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: 100 million ALL are made.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: As much as the government reserves, it is about 100 million ALL.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: That is Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Where does this come from?! This comes not only from production but also from circulation. Let it not be forgotten that the military is one of the sectors that has put all other countries in debt everywhere in the world. I understand that the issue here is to protect ourselves from enemies. Agree that we must defend the homeland and for this, we must not spare anything. But we need to know and maneuver. In this work, the issue arises that we need to put more money into circulation. But it can also lead to inflation and lower our standard of living, or leave us with $ 65 million in some plan work.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Still, it comes out there.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: You go out there again, because you do not have the works, or the products.
COMRADE SIMON STEFANI: There are no jobs.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Therefore, these issues should be seen in isolation. For example, we cut electricity, and for that we gained ca. We need to think and talk to Adil about what we will do with the workers of the third shift?! Shall we tell them to go home and rejuvenate for a month or two without pay? No, we cannot do that.
COMRADE SIMON STEFANI: Let’s write them in the first shift and in the second.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: This is a word of mouth. We have said the same about the University students that we will write them in the factories, but every company has a certain number of lathes which it has busy with its employees, and no one else enters them. That’s why there is no way to melt the third round so easily.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Not only this Comrade Enver, but there are some factories that are stopping production altogether, due to the lack of electricity. Memorie.al
