KADRI HAZBIU: I did it?
COMRADE MANUSH MYFTIU: No, me! (Ironically).
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Well, – says Manushi, why were these done without your knowledge?!
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, they are
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Dale, Kadri, you had this letter that unmasks Sami Muhamet. In the trial of Beqir Balluku, Sami Muhameti turned out to be a very dirty man
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: And he was expelled from the Party.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: In the trial of Abdyl Këllez and his friends, Sami Muhameti is the same. Sami Muhameti, expelled from the Party, you made a Security collaborator to defend him, and in fact you defended him. Only now, after these signals, Sami Muhameti was put in jail. These were concrete signals.
KADRI HAZBIU: They are before Sami Muhameti was expelled from the Party.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: No, no, listen, listen Kadri. This memory of yours is strange, sometimes you forget, sometimes you remember well. Now you remember that this is behind, but unfortunately it is ahead.
KADRI HAZBIU: Well, I did not have it well.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: You did not have it well.
KADRI HAZBIU: Well then…!
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: That Hysniu in his answer says exactly like this: “Feçori must clarify his position, now that Sami Muhameti has been convicted”. So says Comrade Hysni explicitly. So he knew this issue and asked Feçori to give an account for this work. Why did you not carry out his order?
KADRI HAZBIU: He, comrade Feçor, has given an account to the organization (comrades laugh that even now he calls him “comrade Feçor”).
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: For whom?
KADRI HAZBIU: For that.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: The fact is that Feçori did not give an account.
KADRI HAZBIU: It remains to be seen whether he has given an account or not, and how he has given it that is another matter.
COMRADE SIMON STEFANI: What about you, why did you not carry out the orders of Comrade Hysni to the end?!
KADRI HAZBIU: Which, mo, which?
COMRADE SIMON STEFANI: Here is this note made by Comrade Hysni.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Comrade Simon has “gone to the end of this problem” so much that he was interned in Lushnja and he has been “checked” so much that even the detainee had a gun! (All the friends express surprise how while being exiled there was a shooter!!).
Second, when we arrested him, we searched the house and there was a room with over one million lek loot, clocks, etc. I do not exaggerate when I say so.
COMRADE ARANIT ÇELA: Not a room, but a warehouse.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: A warehouse was closed inside and he was interned. There were dozens of gold watches, gold bracelets and so on. This is how the problem of Sami Muhamet was followed! You were a minister, Kadri, but how did you allow these?!
What does comrade Ramiz say, that he, Sami Muhameti became a collaborator?! Why was this done, was not it done to protect him?
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes, to protect him.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: This was the idea that was created for a plot led by Mehmet Shehu. What was that? Mehmet Shehu could not save the conspirators and they were sentenced to death because the Party did not allow it, but he gave the opinion that those who escaped the shooting should be saved from persecution and most of the caste people have become collaborators, for for example vaj’s daughter, ………… gru’s wife and others have become your collaborators.
FRIEND ISAI: By becoming your collaborators, they are not being pursued, information is being sought to put others at a dead end.
KADRI HAZBIU: Well, comrade Hekuran, did Mehmet Shehu give me these instructions?
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Yes, these were applied; here you explain it to us.
KADRI HAZBIU: No, you are the Minister of Internal Affairs and you speak competently, now, please….!
COMRADE RITA MARKO: Yes, you have implemented these.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: You have implemented these.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: But who gave you these directives that you implemented?
KADRI HAZBIU: Ore, please, we decided that Sami Muhameti be interned in Lushnja. His wife was a party member. Now, do I know that he was left with a pistol?! A, please very much now!
COMRADE LAMBI GEGPRIFTI: Why do not you know?
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: Do you know another thing? Do you know that Feçor Shehu came to Sami Muhamet’s offices and talked to people abroad?! He too on paper raised it.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, he was tried.
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: What was tried?
KADRI HAZBIU: I know, comrade Xhelil agrees, but Bato Karafili was in charge of these and as far as I know, he was placed in the basic organization. I do not know now.
COMRADE JASHAR MENZELXHIU: Why do you doubt it, Mehmet Shehu told them to become collaborators, why should we question it?
COMRADE SPIRO KOLEKA: You were a minister.
COMRADE JASHAR MENZELXHIU: He was a resident in the first place, Mehmeti stayed day and night with this.
KADRI HAZBIU: Who, oh?
COMRADE JASHAR MENZELXHIU: You.
KADRI HAZBIU: Where, o?
COMRADE JASHAR MENZELXHIU: In hunting, in society, at work and everywhere, he stayed with you night and day and we will question that he did not give you instructions? He has been a resident. In the first place, you are in the main group there, with Feçor Shehu and others.
KADRI HAZBIU: Well, ore, if I am she is something that is proven, it will come out. Do not worry, Comrade Jashar, about that. If I continue to finish the questions for a while then fill in these friends?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: To finish them, but only that they are not finished because they have tails (laughs).
COMRADE NIMET CANI: Let Kadri Hazbiu explain a fact to us.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Huh?
COMRADE NIMET CANI: In 1977 we were (addressed to Kadri Hazbi) in the plenum of the Party Committee of the Kukes district, together with Comrade Reiz Malile. The delegate of the Central Committee was Kadri Hazbiu. This plenum took place after the plenum of the Central Committee of the Party, where the betrayal of the Chinese leadership and of Mao Zedong as anti-Marxist was denounced.
Kadri Hazbiu, when he stopped reading the text he was carrying, said: Mao Zedong was a great Marxist-Leninist. I saw him once with astonishment on his face, what is he saying?! After about half an hour, when he passed four pages reading the material, he said: “Oh, I was wrong, this Mao Zedong is an anti-Marxist.” So he was not convinced of what he was saying (laughter).
KADRI HAZBIU: Oh, I’m sorry, I can also hang on right now (he says ironically and with a laugh).
COMRADE NIMET CANI: No, that’s what you said. There was also Comrade Reiz.
KADRI HAZBIU: Comrade Reiz Malile?! Yes let him is asked. Okay, okay.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Let him speak for a while, listen to Kadri, and then we will ask him other questions. Wait for the jewels he is telling us.
KADRI HAZBIU: Someone, it seems to me that comrade Xhelil, said here that I had said: “what do you have with your father, deal with Mehmet Shehu’s son”.
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: “Take care of the boy, what you have with his father”, yes, that’s what you told me.
KADRI HAZBIU: I am sorry; comrade Xhelil, now every answer and my intervention can be taken as a provocation. I remember it that way. Yes, I told you and everyone who informed me: “If you give it directly to your father, inform him. Why should the Party committee notify the Security?
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: No, you did not tell me that.
KADRI HAZBIU: Please, now let us keep the responsibilities as they are, why did you have to tell me when you are the secretary of the Party?
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: Yes, as they are. I am self-critical that I did not go to Mehmet Shehu myself and tell him, but I told you that you were a member of the Politburo and you were obliged to tell Mehmet Shehu what had happened to his children. I did not ask your permission, but I told you to tell your father.
KADRI HAZBIU: I told him, or I did not tell him…?
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: I do not know if you told him or not, I only know how you told me. I did not get your permission to call Mehmet Shehu’s son.
KADRI HAZBIU: Then why did you call me? Why did you tell me?
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: I told you to tell Mehmet Shehu that the bad behavior of his son was obvious. I did not know that Mehmet Shehu was a traitor.
KADRI HAZBIU: Did I know?
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: How do I know if you knew?
KADRI HAZBIU: Well then you know for yourself, I know for myself.
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: No, no.
KADRI HAZBIU: Here it is.
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: No, mor no. I did not ask your permission to call Mehmet Shehu’s son. I told you as a member of the Politburo to tell Mehmet Shehu, and you told me: “what do you want with Mehmet Shehu, deal with the boy”. The boy and I got up and called him.
KADRI HAZBIU: Excuse me, I do not remember saying that, comrade Xhelil, but surely my position on these was this: Mehmet Shehu’s son was a party member, so you and anyone else, I have saying that you notice him okay as a party member.
That’s what I said. But for this you had to tell Mehmet Shehu himself, why would you tell him with a prompter, through me? What I did to Mehmet Shehu, whether I told her or not, does not matter now.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well, this issue is over. We have others.
KADRI HAZBIU: Agreed.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Why, will we not spend an hour with this issue? Here, we heard what Xhelili says like this, you say like that. Answer us now for the other questions, explain them to us politically. Memorie.al
