CENTRAL COMMITTEE Top secret
MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 5TH PLENUM OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF ALP ON OCTOBER 14 AND 14, 1982
KADRI HAZBIU: Let me answer, comrade Enver. I ask my friend Naunka to forgive me.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, thank you.
KADRI HAZBIU: I did not consider the meeting of the bureau of the Party Committee of the Fier district and I was not authorized to do so. You, Mrs. Naunka, told me that you analyzed the work of the Internal Affairs Branch and dismissed its chairman. Okay, I told you. But why? You told me he has these and these things. All right, I told you. That’s how we talked together.
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: That’s not true.
KADRI HAZBIU: Avash, avash. He came to my house at dinner. What do you have? – I asked her. “I was fired,” he said. Well, – I said, go implement the decision.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: Where did he get that courage to come to the house where you were? He was fired by the bureau of the district Party Committee and he came to you at home?!
KADRI HAZBIU: Why?
COMRADE PALI MISKA: Or rather, why did you call him to come?
KADRI HAZBIU: I did not call him.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: Then why did he come?
KADRI HAZBIU: But why should I stop him?
COMRADE PALI MISKA: Do not accept it.
KADRI HAZBIU: How can I not accept a member of the Party?
COMRADE PALI MISKA: Did the first secretary of the district Party Committee tell you that we fired her?
KADRI HAZBIU: Well, comrade Pali, I am a member of the Politburo, I have no right to hear a party member when he takes me there and says to me: comrade Kadri, so and so?
COMRADE PALI MISKA: It depends on the attitude you hold, say it.
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: The Party organizations, – I told Kadriu, have criticized those who have been in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, but they continue to be there even now. Kadri Hazbiu told me: “I was the Minister of Internal Affairs”. “Well, you have been,” I told him, “the Party organizations have given these and these facts, for this person and for this person and these are such.” He started reminding me of some previous analyzes that had been done in the bureau of the Party Committee of the district of Fier and “look at them there, – he told me”.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, yes, I remember saying that.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: So this was not her job?
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, I told him to look.
COMRADE HARILLA PAPAJORGJI: Comrade Enver, forgive me.
KADRI HAZBIU: Let me finish that is the question.
COMRADE HARILLA PAPAJORGJI: No, no, regarding this it is and what I will say: A month ago I was at the conference of BRPSH of Fier district. Comrade Naunka Bozo, not knowing at all that there would come a day when we would discuss Kadri in this meeting, complained to me and told me exactly like this: “He told me: ‘You made a wrong analysis.’
KADRI HAZBIU: Did I tell you about the kilim? You mean, like, saltines and their ilk, eh?
COMRADE HARILLA PAPAJORGJI: My friend Naunka told me when I was at the Youth conference.
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: Yes, yes.
COMRADE HARILLA PAPAJORGJI: He told me without knowing at all about the meeting we were going to have today.
KADRI HAZBIU: “Çilimi”?!
COMRADE HARILLA PAPAJORGJI: Yes.
KADRI HAZBIU: I told my friend Naunka, and then I told my friend Hekuran that in the Internal Affairs Branch of the district of Fier there are traditions of a job behind your back.
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: It is not true that you told me so.
KADRI HAZBIU: Did I tell you that the chairman of the Internal Affairs Branch was killed behind his back? I told you that they were thus dismissed with slander of each other. I said this for you to judge in the complex. I told this to my friend Hekuran.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: No, no, you did not tell me that, but you told me that Riza Kuçi is a good cadre, you told me that.
KADRI HAZBIU: I told you that I do not know him as a bad person.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: She is the same. You mean, like, saltines and their ilk, eh?
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, I said that, but not after the dismissal, I told you before.
COMRADE LENKA ÇUKO: You know this for good, the other also, the question arises: What do you know then?
KADRI HAZBIU: Order?
COMRADE LENKA ÇUKO: You know all these people who are bad people for good, then, what do you know?
KADRI HAZBIU: Who are bad?
COMRADE LENKA ÇUKO: You know all these elements that the Party has condemned for good that is how you know the people? You do not know one as a bad person, the other as well, so what do you know?
KADRI HAZBIU: When I talked to Comrade Hekuran about Riza Kuçi, he was the chairman of the Fier Branch of Internal Affairs and I called him, as I said, that I myself do not know that he has bad things.
COMRADE LENKA ÇUKO: No, you should know this too: you have received in the Ministry of Internal Affairs the worst cadres who have been down at the base and you know this very well, therefore, answer here!
KADRI HAZBIU: Good.
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: And one more thing: When the Politburo sent Kadri Hazbiu to Ballsh, where the letter of the Central Committee of the Party on the hostile activity of Mehmet Shehu would be drafted, Kadri Hazbiu revealed who were the glorious sons of Mallakastra, Idriz Seiti , Hajdar Aranitasin and others.
KADRI HAZBIU: Ë? Me?
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: When did he release them, at what time was it, after Mehmet Shehu’s suicide?
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: After the suicide of Mehmet Shehu, even on the feast of Poçem, – he said and took everyone out there.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: Idriz Seiti turned out to be holding that document written by Mehmet Shehu.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Friend Naunka. What should I say to Kadri now? Before he came to Fier and said all those things, I told him to go to Mallakastër, gather the people and speak against Mehmet Shehu; to say to Hekuran Qazim, whom we later arrested: And he has done these things! These are weird things! Good, – says friend Lenka, that he helps all the bad people.
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: I have the right to be proud, – he said, that I have been loyal to Enver Hoxha all my life.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: E, e (ironically).
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: This was the “faithful”!!
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: We have now explained his loyalty.
KADRI HAZBIU: Comrade Naunka, now let me carry everything on my back, but the truth is this: even in Mallakastër when we were, I said that the war was not fought by Mehmet Shehu, but by the Party.
(Reaction from all friends. Most say: what would you say?).
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well, we do not know what you said?!
KADRI HAZBIU: One minute, one minute. Yes now Naunka is Naunka!! (Ironically). I have my conscience about this.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: Naunka is the first secretary of the district Party Committee.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, Naunka is the first secretary of the district Party Committee and she has never been wrong, and you have been wrong to the core.
KADRI HAZBIU: Well, to the throat let me am wrong, Comrade Enver, I will answer.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: How, “good”?! How “good”?!
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, but no (interrupts Comrade Enver).
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well then let’s close it, comrades. If you do not answer, we close the discussion.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, not to distort things, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: I also propose that you be arrested.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, I agree (friends agree).
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, of course.
KADRI HAZBIU: Agreed, posi. My party arrests me.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: “Your” party arrests you for being guilty. Then answer!
KADRI HAZBIU: If I am to be arrested, let me be arrested, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, yes, we will arrest you; we will definitely arrest you, because we have documents.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, not with distortions.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Do not talk to your friends in this way.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: In aggression.
KADRI HAZBIU: Excuse me, comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: How can you not be ashamed when you say: “You are Naunka”, but what are you?
KADRI HAZBIU: Naunka is Naunka who has her word, I have mine. Here I had the floor.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: You have yours, but you do not tell us anything.
KADRI HAZBIU: What can I say? Tell you what Naunka says? Yes, I told Naunka and about the Ballsh museum that you see that you are not well. I also told comrade Ramiz that you should send someone to see the Ballsh museum.
COMRADE MUHO ASLLANI: You are arrogant and do not ask about Naunka or any other of your arrogance and arrogance. Wherever you are interested, you always get them close and in the districts as well, you bring your people closer.
KADRI HAZBIU: What did I get, mor, what did I get?
COMRADE MUHO ASLLANI: What did you get? And in Shkodra, and in Durrës that you came, you approached drunken people.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: So far, you Kadri, you have not told us anything.
KADRI HAZBIU: I have never been a drunkard, Comrade Muho.
COMRADE MUHO ASLLANI: Order?
KADRI HAZBIU: I have never been a drunkard. Memorie.al
