For sure, it certainly does not look glassy. But what did the Pope say?

FOR XHAVIT THE BAG, TAKE OUT OF THE INFORMATION OF T.O. DATED 23.8.1973
Discussing the cadres who were elected to the Writers’ League of Albania, Xhaviti said that: Enver Halili was once a member of the Supreme Court and with the breakdown of relations with the Soviet Union, held a very vile attitude. These are sneaky by character. He was disgusted by the character who used to send his poems to the newspaper “Pionieri” when he was in the gymnasium of Gjirokastra and wrote: You fellow editors, if you publish them as they are, without playing them, not even a comma ; you will say that he is right, yes, good hour tjerë others.
Report-information of the State Security Operational Worker, Esat Lata, with the data of the Security collaborator with the nickname “Beni”, regarding the conversations made by the convict Xhavit Qesja, after his discharge from the hospital and arrival at Burrel prison
Received from B.P. “Do it” through the mailbox
R E P O R T
Regarding what Xhavit Qesja brought from the hospital briefly, “Albanian-Chinese relations are not what the press reflects, there are great divergences between the two courses, that of Chu En Lait and Enver Hoxha. Chu En Lai stated to the Albanian Labor Party that the Chinese do not approve of the foreign policy course followed by the ALP, describing it as a rigid, sectarian course, and in terms of domestic policy, the Communist Party Chinese, does not approve of the way the notion of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat in Albania is conceived and implemented. The Chinese insist that Albanians reflect on these, especially in terms of establishing close relations and creating in the Balkans the triangle: Bucharest – Tirana – Belgrade.
In other news, the Chinese have purchased a number of supersonic jet aircraft in the United States and sent 58 Chinese pilot instructors there for training.
Foreign radios report that secret talks between the Chinese Party and the B.R.S.S.
Regarding the situation in the country and the assessment of Enver Hoxha’s recent speeches; Xhaviti says that he shows the fear that the leadership has from the youth and intelligence, but he thinks that Enver Hoxha will not cross the path of violence, where he wants to put Mehmet Shehu and Kadri Hazbiu. He will moderate and once he has eradicated the most modern extremist appearances, he will find a middle ground.
The data is valuable because Xhevit presents the Albanian-Chinese relations as divergent relations, because the Chinese leaders do not approve of the course followed by P.P.SH., that the Chinese have relations with the Americans.
As it appears from the data, Xhaviti told him after he came from the hospital of Tirana, which was hospitalized.
TASK: Agent “Beni” was given the task to explain in a conversation with Xhavit, when he learned these conversations, where and by whom he learned these conversations.

Regarding the source of information that Xhaviti received in the hospital, the latter did not say anything concrete to him, but in the conversation, right after he returned from the hospital, Xhaviti said that while passing from one ward to another, he fell to live with Ylli Tabaku, a political prisoner, who was also here in Burrel, with a 16-year-old boy from Tepelena, who had been put in prison, because he had kissed his ex-fiancée in the middle of the yard, when this had begun to cool with him, the former political prisoner released in 1968, but who had been arrested again and was in the investigator for guilt _______________, Ramadan Muça from Vlora (he gave it to Ben’s sister), with a young convict, why he had eaten the money stolen from two saleswomen who had both ___________ at the same time. From these we mentioned, the most probable informant must have been Ylli Tabaku, who, staying for several months in a row in the hospital with (______________________), had contacts with a large number of prisoners and especially pre-detainees who brought news of fresh. Ramadan Muça, who had not even been arrested for a month, must have supplied him with news heard on Radio-Television. Even the young man from Tirana may have supplied it.
In addition to what he reported to you, he recalled that Xhavit had learned the same sources of information and figures and data on the development of industrial production in the Soviet Union and the USA, for the main voices, to the point of absurdity (Eg. The Soviet Union last year produced 240 million tons of steel, another 190 million televisions, with an annual increase of approximately 2-3 million.
The same goes for steel. At the same time he had learned that Yugoslavia, with the help of West German scientists, was working to produce the atomic bomb (hence Bonn’s Interior Minister went to Yugoslavia), to discuss measures to secure these scientists and some other curiosity.
Saying that this information, Xheviti talked to them, Maqo Çomon, Bardhyl Belishova and Bedri Spahiu, and no one else, are instructing them not to tell others. The informants told Xhavit: that they heard this news from foreign shows on Western Radios, including news on Albanian-Chinese relations. Xhavit was in the hospital from April 4, until June 6, 1973.
The information regarding the sources from where the convict Xhavit Qesja learned this news, was extracted from the report of our agent “Beni”, and was printed in two copies, one was placed in Xhavit’s form file and the other was sent to him. Directorate of Internal Affairs Tirana.

Also regarding the measures taken by the Party against foreign influences, it was stated that the measures taken, on the one hand, enjoy, because they will increase the resistance in the ranks of youth and intelligence and will accelerate the day when it will begin to react actively to the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.
