By Gjet Kadeli
Memorie.al publishes some archival documents issued by the Authority for the Information of the Files of the former State Security, where there is a voluminous file (the processing form file with 433 pages and the investigative and judicial file with 632 pages) in charge of Gjet Kadel, originating from the village of Bulshar in Oroshi of Mirdita and living in Bushnesh and Mamurras of Kurbin, former political prisoner in the communist regime of Enver Hoxha and his successor, Ramiz Alia, who spent 16 years in communist camps and prisons, as in Spaç, Burrel, etc. As we will see from the documents that are in the file in charge of Gjet Kadel, which is published for the first time by Memorie.al, the surveillance and pursuit of him began in 1957, when he was 17 years old, with the information report of the State Security officer, Fahri Kraja, (based on the data of the Security associate with the nickname “Dylli i Bardhë”, with the approval of the Head of the Department of Internal Affairs of the Kruja district, lieutenant colonel Muhedin Këxhalliu) , continued even during the period he was in camps and prisons, such as in Spaç, where after the revolt of May 1973, Gjeta was sentenced again, as he was the main ideator for raising the flag without the communist star, continuing then in the prison of Burrel, with the reports-information of the Operative Worker, Piro Nuredini, etc., about Gjeta’s conversations with other convicts of that prison, such as: Pjetër Arbnori, Daut Gumeni, Abdulla Sallaku, Spartak Ngjela, Avni Aliko, Luan Burimi , Çaush Çoku, Kapllan Resuli, B come Gjonzeneli, Bashkim Shehu, etc. The surveillance and follow-up of Gjet Kadel continued even after his release from prison in 1987, continuing until January 1991, with the collapse of the communist regime, when his file was finally closed and archived in the secret archive of the former State Security. In the same way, an important place in the said files is also occupied by letter correspondence of Gjeta and his family, with their father, Pjetër Kadeli, former soldier of the Monarchy of Zogu, who had blown up the prison cells of Internal Branch of Rrëshen on July 28, 1950, stayed for some time in the mountains on the run, and then in 1951, secretly returned to Mirdita, took his son, Gjoni, and escaped to Yugoslavia and then to the USA- es, where he stayed as a political emigrant, until the beginning of the 90s, when he returned permanently to Albania. During this period of almost 35 years since Gjet Kadeli has been followed and monitored by the State Security, a total of 33 associates of the State Security have been engaged and activated against him, who have given their reports, starting from “White Wax” in 1957, until the “Mountain Swallow” in 1990, which will be reflected in full, as they are in the relevant files.

He says to White; not like that, one of Mamurrasi spoke like that and they put him in prison, they call him Gjet Kadeli. Bardha said that; I know Gjeta, because he came to my house here in Milot and in the conversation, he seemed like a good guy, he even told me that he was called by the Interior Department and he refused and put himself at their service. Gjeta is a good friend and he made it known to those at Dega, that he doesn’t want to leave our idea, that’s why he is determined, but what they want, they took him by the neck. Then, Bardha said that; I constantly listen to the Italian radio, but still nothing good is coming to us, it was about changing the situation, those outside, our people, are sleeping and it never seemed to them, although they want to find the will, that there is no other way, that even these are strong, that they don’t get scared easily. There was no further conversation.
Find the opportunity and meet with Bardhë again and talk about the work of her people abroad, has she received any letter and how are things, and Gjergji, your husband, how is things at Ura e Mati, do we have any news from the radios , that you have time and deal with these things.
Rating of the giver:
Data of B.p. it must be believed, due to the very fact that Gjeta Kadeli and Bardhe Bici have a relationship between them, we say that Gjeta was really called by the Branch to put him in service, but he did not accept, so they may have done and hostile conversations between them.
The data of B.p., to be printed in two copies, one to be placed in the file of Gjet Kadel, who has been arrested, and the other to be placed in the file of Bardhe Bici. Here it is worth emphasizing that the Finder in the investigator should be asked about the connections and what he knows about these and the hostile activity he has developed with these connections.

He reports that on 6.9.1972, he met Nik Deda in Mamurras, after they met they went to the club and drank a coffee, during the conversation, Nika told him that Pal Vata, who is my friend, is connected to Sigurimi . Paul, to start the conversation, leaves like a fool, but shut the door, I said Nika, I quickly understood who this was and disconnected immediately, then there was the conversation of Gjet Kadel, who has been arrested, where Nika said that he came to me too bad for him, if I have the chance I’ll help him, but I don’t have money and I don’t know where to find it, because Gjeta has been a loyal friend, he told him; we don’t know, Nik, how his work will turn out because I stayed at his house and didn’t say anything about us. Nika said that; I’ve been hanging out with him too, but don’t be afraid he’s determined and never lets his friends out. I found, said Nika, you don’t betray your friends. Nika said; if they put Gjeta in prison for women, I don’t call him a good man, but if they put him in politics, happy, because Gjeta was good at that job, I say Nika, these are I can only tell you that until today, I haven’t heard anything about you, and you are staying loyal to our stratum, until the end, after you were burned by them and they shut the door on you with three brothers. They did not talk to each other for a long time. He says that; Nika is very scared about the arrest of Gethe Kadel, but he is very strong.
Meet with Nik Deda and in the conversation with him, say that I am left without a job, I made a request to the committee, but I have not received an answer, and from there you tell him that if you stay without a job, you become like Gjeta, and the deserted Gjet , there’s a bunch of reeds, who knows what he’s doing, we loved him a lot, I had advised him not to talk to anyone, but he doesn’t listen to me, I’ve been staying at his house for some time and I’m afraid that my name will be mentioned and then they will look at me with a bad eye, but Ishalla doesn’t say anything about us, Nik. Likewise, for Kin Basha’s connections, because he received some watches from abroad and gave them to Gjeta to sell, if so, why did he need this job, because it took a lot of toads off his neck.
Data of B.p. to be printed in two copies, one to be entered in Gjet Kadel’s file, and the other in Nik Deda’s file. I found in the investigator, to tighten around the hostile activity with Nika, after Nika, he is showing himself very afraid of his arrest and on the other hand, he is making a lot of movements and on the other hand for these movements, he is kept under strong control of the agency and of any trusted person.

(OF THE DEFENDANT’S QUESTIONS TO KADEL)
Kruje, on 25/IX/1972
Today, on 25.IX.1972, the defendant Gjet Kadeli is re-examined, who, when asked about the case, declares that:
Question: Defendant, tell us about your hostile activity that you developed against our government?
Answer: I have not done hostile activities against the government.
Question: Tell us, defendant, did you talk to any person, foreign immigrant, or people who have people abroad, to connect you with your father, which person did you talk to?
Answer: I have not talked to any person, either an immigrant or another person who has relatives abroad, to connect with my father and brother abroad.
Question: Tell us, defendant, did you talk with the immigrant Sokol Matoshi, so that you could connect with your family through his relatives? So Sokol Matoshi has claimed that you have proposed such a thing to him, is it true?
Answer: It is not true that I talked with Sokol Matoš, a Yugoslav immigrant, so that I could connect with my father and his tribe abroad. Sokoli himself, there from the fall of 1971, met me and during the conversation he told me; do you get money and loot from your father, I told him no, he told me, you couldn’t arrange it with anyone, I told him, I couldn’t talk to any person. This was my conversation with Sokol. Sokoli again, he tells me that I had the opportunity to help him, but I don’t know what kind of man you are, I told him that we don’t talk about this business together, not only with you, but with any man, I tell him that when the government will allow the money or loot, if father sends me, I will take it. I have not had other conversations with Sokol.
Question: Tell us, defendant, when did you meet Kin Basha and how did you meet Kin?
Answer: I met Kin Basha in 1967-68, when he was released from the army and came to live in Mamurras. Kini’s mother, Suta, has known my mother since 1949-1956, during which time they were together in exile in Tepelena, Tirana and Lushnje, and I, through my mother, got to know Kini. I have come to Kin’s house two or three times, but he has not come to my house. Already in the fall of 1971, a friend from Mirdita, his name is Pashk Frrok Lleshaj and he lives in Prosek village, ordered me for a good watch, in July 1972, I heard from Mirash Ndoj, who lives in Mamurras, that Kin Basha had come two hours from outside, I went to Kin’s house one Sunday morning, and I told Kin that; I found out that your watch has arrived, I tell him that if you haven’t given it to anyone, a friend from Rrëseni has ordered it for me, he will buy it for me. On this day, I had gone to Rrëshen and since I am going to be widowed, I told Kini, I am telling that friend to come and get them, Kini told me that, since you are going there, take the watch and give me money. Kini told me two wrist watches, “Darvin” brand, for men and asked for 1,500 Lek per piece. I took the two hours and went to Rrësen, to Ura e Milot, I met Pashk Lleshaj and we returned together. He had bought the watch and I sent the watches back to Kin. I have been told that: In April 1972, Kini told me that, when you are going to visit your sister in Belsh, Elbasan, I asked him why, he told me that I would like to come with you, because I a man of mine there, I don’t know the way and I’m glad to meet him, so Kini said, when you get dressed, let me know too, let’s go together, I tell him that when I come, I’ll let you know too. After a few days, Kini tells me again, do you plan to go there or not, I answered that I will come from May 17 or 18, 1972 and Kini said fine, I will also get the permit and we will go together, but I add again Kini, that I will go a day ahead and sleep in Lushnje, with some of my people and the next day I will wait at the train station in Lushnje. On May 15, 1972, my sister came home by herself, so I didn’t have to go there, but I forgot to go and tell Kini the night before she was going to leave, I just remembered that day when Kini had gone to Lushnje, I went to his house on the day that Kini had fled, and I asked the family and they told me that Kini had fled, the next day, in order not to live up to his word, I got on the train and went in Lushnje, there I met Kini at the train station, I told her that I only came because I had given my word, that my sister came to my house, Kini replied that she tried in vain, but with all that, thank you and I returned home again, that is, I had not gone with him. Kini told me that he wanted to go to Belsh (Dragot) Elbasan, to meet the son of Mr. Miraka, named Bibjan Miraka, who was interned with his mother for five years. , I don’t know what Kini had to do with this and I didn’t care to ask anymore. Kini went to meet Bibjan himself. After three or four days, I met Kini by chance and asked him if he had gone there, he told me that I had. Memorie.al
