The document with the minutes of the meeting of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the ALP, on the topic “Analysis of serious mistakes of Kadri Hazbiu, committed during the period when he was Deputy Minister and Minister of Internal Affairs”, held on September 20, 1982
MEETING OF THE SECRETARIAT OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE ALP DATE SEPTEMBER 20, 1982
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: I believe that you should have had this opinion even in 1960, that you were the Minister of Internal Affairs. Bukur. Then, what alarm did you raise in the Central Committee, where you came to raise your voice and say: “Ore comrades, 3 thousand students, civilian and military, we had in the Soviet Union. For each of these we have sent all the data that the Soviets now know.
We do not know which of these the Soviets worked with, however, in these circumstances, we must think about what we can do to eventually prevent any danger, or to find any of these people who have worked in this direction, for example, to tell us about this work ”. Do you draw any conclusions on this issue? Did you inform the Central Committee about this?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: This issue has preoccupied me, for this my friends have even instructed me.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Who ordered you?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Comrade Enver even ordered me, even Comrade Hysni, they told me to look at this issue.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Look at this issue, it is very reasonable to say, but we have been told that these people have been shown to be heroes, even the report that was made to us then, said that our soldiers who were sent to study in the Soviet Union, are seal, no one stood there, that all are with the Party, determined people. That was the characteristic you were giving at the time to these people. We do not discuss at all that there are good people among them, yes, but in practice they are all suspicious, so we should definitely have our minds on them.
In my internal journal, I constantly write down who I meet, what he talks to me about, and what I say to my interlocutor. Then Hysniu described all the military issues, from A to Zh, because I was sick at the time and the doctors would not let me get up. Among other things, I told them to be careful that the Soviet agency had entered our army Security organs, it had made its own the then Chief of Security in the Army, who I do not remember what they called it.
SHOKU KADRI HAZBIU: Malo Hashorva.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: No no, Chief of Security.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Halim Xheloja.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Halim Xheloja, it does not seem to me, that he is one of the Fier that we arrested, or what did we do to him. To be more precise, it seems to me that he was the Director of the Army Intelligence Directorate.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Was it Andon Sheti?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: A, Andon Sheti, he was the Director of the Intelligence Directorate.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, this should be, Andon Sheti. This, I tell Hysni, is a man who has not given us any information all the time he works there and I doubt that he can be one hundred percent, an agent of the Soviets, so to attach great importance to this directorate, because without this, we can have nothing in the Army. It is now clear to us that Hysni did not know anything about this issue; we are based on the facts.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: As far as I remember, Comrade Hysni gave me a complete list, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: It is also the list, they have even made it complete with who these people are. It belongs to the Chinese.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: No, we had extracted it, as far as I can remember, by asking all of them, that the Chinese knew a part.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: Did they only know about the military?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: No, even for civilians. I do not know, even for civilians we have released the list, who were our collaborators who knew these places and where they are. I do not know, but we have extracted it, I have sent it to you, Comrade Enver, how can I say it now…!
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, you issued it, but to whom did you give it? Did you give it to me?!
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: No, Comrade Enver, we have given to the comrades here, as they are given, that we do not even forward these materials in protocol number. These materials are here. I have been instructed to look at and treat these people so that they do not feel anxious. I say this conscientiously.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Is not this a lack of vigilance and a great underestimation of this very dangerous problem, Comrade Kadri that you only in 1975 remember about this issue?!
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: What can I say about this issue now, Comrade Ramiz?
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Do we know anything about this as a Central Committee? We know nothing, so let’s ask you, and ask exactly why we know nothing.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: No, we do not know anything.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Well, yes, I know this, I completely agree and the question you ask is legal, there is no discussion about this, but what can I do now that I have not kept notes. From the beginning, when we broke up with the Russians, the problem of the students we had in the Soviet Union and in other former socialist countries, we raised the issue of the agency we were taking abroad.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Well, well, Kadri. Sh. M. who kept a note now, you still have a job in the Ministry of Defense today. This one comes out to us now as it is, then how doing you keep that director in the Ministry? How do you explain this?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: I do not know that he is a director, but it does not matter.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: No Kadri, this matters, it even matters a lot. A big question mark arises here.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: No, no, I am saying this, Comrade Enver, who does not care if he is or is not a director in the Ministry of Defense, Sh. M., I do not have the issue here, and I had to take these people one by one, to see what to do with one and what to do with the other, and with this work, I am not taken.
After educating them, as far as I know, we have given the lists to the Central Committee, these have been studied here and we have been instructed on how these people should be treated. It is possible that they were called by the Party and some of them were called by leading cadres of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, where they were told not to worry about these problems, that they had implemented the orders given to them, did not bear any responsibility .
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: YES Mehmet Shehu knew these issues?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: I could not say that I gave a list to Mehmet Shehu myself. He is a traitor, but he did not ask me to do so. The lists I have given here, in the Central Committee, the friends have seen them and given me the orders I said. I know it was a more complete list, with some 180 or 200 names, exactly how it was, I do not know.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Look Kadri, these are two facts that we are raising here today. You yourself should know, and you other friends should know, that in the Ministry of Internal Affairs there is a whole life, there should be other documents that we have a duty to have patience and composure until find and see. Right now, we have these two facts. In the letter you write to comrade Hysni and inform him that you have destroyed the documents of these people.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: As collaborators?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: I do not know what these were, I want to ask: why did you burn their documents?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: It is a rule for us, Comrade Enver, I do not know if we should look at it, but from what we saw, they were no longer valid as collaborators, they must have the card in the File, and their files must have been burned as worthless collaborators. We had this rule, so we acted as the rules. If anything has been done against them, then it is different.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, yes, this is how we sang these materials, so that you can tell us that we have destroyed them. D.m.th., all the documents of these collaborators, you destroyed them?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: We were annihilating them.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: You annihilated them and they were no longer kept in touch by you? Is that so?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: No, they were not held.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: What did these documents contain?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: They were their personal documents, as I say, Comrade Enver, they had not the biography, not the nickname as collaborators, not other requirements that we needed for them. For all these people, there should be cards, because if the document is burned, the card with which it is proven that this or that person was a collaborator at this time remains, to know who kept him in touch, etc. The card has all this data needed.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, yes, well, but why should they be burned? These were officials of our state.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, because they were no longer collaborators of the State Security, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: They would have been charged by the Ministry of Internal Affairs as collaborators in the Soviet Union, they are honest people, then why burn their documents?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: They must have been burned later, Comrade Enver, when all of them returned from the Soviet Union.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, I am based on what you yourself said, that the documents of these people that you burned in 1975. You may have burned them before, I do not know that, but we burned them as if you.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: No, I do not know him. Let this matter be verified Comrade Enver. Memorie.al
