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 KADRI HAZBIU: They may have used them.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: How do you consider this action Kadri?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: For my part, I do not consider this action regular, fair, but even for that time, please, Comrade Ramiz, I had this practice with the Soviets. What can I tell you now?
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Agreed, this practice is already very wrong.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: I also considered it wrong, wrong.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: As long as it is wrong, then why did not you inform the Central Committee since 1959, that you considered this practice wrong, to do it at least in 1960, when we went to war with the Soviets, or finally in 1961 , in 1963, in 1965, are you leaving it until 1975? Why didn’t you do it before?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: She has documents.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes, you have documents in the file.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: But why did not you do it?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: How do I know, Comrade Enver?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: How do I know you say, but you should know, because I cannot know?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, I must have known. I did not think I did not tell the Central Committee. Now what else can I say?
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Is not this a great lack of vigilance, Comrade Kadri, on your part? That you, after 1960 when we broke up with the Soviets, gave them all these documents and you know that very well.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: It is not after 1960.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Before 1960, and after 1960, the situation we know with the Soviets happened. Then how could you not remember to say; ore, without coming out a bit, that I have given them all the names of the anti-party elements. I have also given them all the names and elements we have in processing.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: But why, forgive me Comrade Ramiz, that in addition to these, they should have many other details based on the practice we had.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: We assume that we do not want to know this, and you are guilty of the practice we have decided.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: No, no, I want to say for another reason. Even today, Comrade Kadri, the enemy watches our reports with entire satellites, even watching them from place to place. However, we do not publish or write them. Why give them to us with our own hands?
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: This is not the work of a practical issue we had with the Soviets, this is a complete lack of vigilance on your part.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Well, oh, yes, I’m telling you that it was like that at that time. Well, we were wrong.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: The materials we are discussing are very secret; they do not even know the members of the Politburo.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: They do not know either.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Ore, why should I, Comrade Adil, give Llambi’s letter another job, but we have made the platform together with them.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: It does not matter, Kadri.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: You also officially give it to him, in this way a norm is violated by you.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Agree, agree, but he asks them based on the school they enter in the joint plan, the violation is then another matter.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: This is an important job. Another job that you make other concessions to them, this same document, for which the Politburo has drawn attention that it is highly secret, why did you give it to them?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: It is not a secret for the school.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: At school, its students would learn its content when they returned here.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: This is how I judged it at that time.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: This is how you judged it, but what do you think, did you judge it right or wrong?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: I judged it wrong.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well, what are the consequences of this mistake on your part?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: The consequences of what I say now, these have been done, are to the detriment of the Party.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, a very big damage, ama.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: I only want to say one thing, Comrade Enver, I do not want to apologize for these, but it is impossible not to have received any approval from my comrades, not to have asked how to act, because these materials are being given to us by the Soviets ask for school, send them or not? The responsibility, however, remains with me, that I was the headliner there at the time.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well, where do you think we should ask, because there is no document?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: What can I say now, Comrade Enver, since the 1960s where they are remembered?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: For such a thing so important to limit yourself to getting a verbal approval?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: We did the same, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: You acted, you acted wrong. So it is with all those who have acted in this way.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: It is a mistake for the other collaborators we had abroad. They knew, Comrade Enver, we had these orders, so we acted, do not hold any reserves for the Soviets, cooperate closely with them, we were told.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: This is not an excuse, Kadri.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: I do not want to be excused, Comrade Enver, I also know this issue.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: The issue is here, we ask the councilor for advice, but not to give the whole investigation of what is done for one and what is done for the other. The adviser we had, we could say that a man, by the way, without mentioning his name, killed us and he has, for example, his father, a party member, and 6 children. What punishment do you give him? Advice may be sought in such a case.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: We, Comrade Enver, did not have that method of working with them.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: If we gave to the Soviets all the investigations of Liri Gega, of this or that, this is not allowed.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, they participated, Comrade Enver, in their investigation, in their trials, they asked what the investigator said today, what answer the defendant gave, etc.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: No, if you tell him like that, it is another matter, Comrade Kadri.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Ore, this is how we had built our work with Soviet advisers. Here, these are for school, these are synthesis. They had all our work in hand. At least that’s how we built our relationship with them. Now let the responsibility fall on me, that am just how it worked.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Let the responsibility fall on you is not a right answer on your part, you are telling us here how you should feel this responsibility.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, I feel, how can I not feel the responsibility?
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Yes, I am telling you, for example, that Comrade Adil and I were members of the Politburo at that time and neither I nor Adil know anything about these issues.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: From whom?
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Here from all that we are discussing, we know absolutely nothing. Then why did the Soviets know this?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Well, I do not know, but they worked with these things, Comrade Ramiz.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: No, no, by this I mean that these materials are very secret and it is well done that they were kept secret by us, and you take these to the Soviets. How is this job? This is very serious, Comrade Kadri.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: These are consumed, but they should have been asked for school. I think they were sent to school.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: Yes, our Security School, where these things can be taught, the Soviets also have a Security branch there.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: It is not at all reasonable to give a secret to the school. Why did not you send to this school the files of the Koçi Xoxa process, for the Soviet trucks to come and take all the materials of the State Security with you? Why?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: These must be issues that our school here has addressed, Comrade Enver, and they have asked us for copies. Let your friends verify these issues. It is possible that it is so.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: No, no.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: No, no, there are some copies that have been sent to the Central Committee.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Well, well, what has been taken and processed for the school is coming out. Now how are they processed? Are processed in school.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: What was done by you, Comrade Kadri, is a big mistake and it is not true what you say that these were needed for the school.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Then why did they have to?
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Here, I am telling you why they were needed.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Well, I said, maybe it reminds me of something.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Here I am reminding you. This is shown only by the latter, the five reports on the hostile activity of all the anti-party elements that we had in 1959. Were there any of these?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: There was.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Excuse me for a minute, Comrade Kadri.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, you have copies of these five reports now.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Here, forgive me, I have them, we have made a summary for them, and this is their summary. In these five relations, which we also have in number, it is about the hostile comments that have developed at this time against the Party line the anti-party elements that were in the Zvërnec camp in free condition, such as Xhavit Qesja, Peço Fidhi, Pëllumb Dishnica , Kadri Hoxha. Excuse me one minuter!
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: What did the school need this information for?
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: So what did the school need these? However, I am talking here, Comrade Enver, that in the Zvërnec camp, we had organized the operative intelligence work, we were withdrawing through the agency the hostile comments made by the enemies and these were taken by the Security. But what did the Party school need?
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Which school of the Party?
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Not to the Party school, but to the Soviet Security school.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Yes, I’m sorry, I meant the Security School too.
COMRADE KADRI HAZBIU: Now how can I tell you, I’m coming out, you took Comrade Hekuran, I’m sorry now that they say that these have been done since 1959, so I cannot remember now what the Soviets wanted, why they asked for them and how they asked for them. Memorie.al
