At the beginning of November 1982, just a few days after the arrest of the former Minister of Internal Affairs, Kadri Hazbiu (then Minister of National Defense), who would be personally accused by Enver Hoxha in the plenum of the Central Committee of the ALP, as “close collaborator of the polyagent Mehmet Shehu”, and “leader of the hostile group”, which also included: Feçor Shehu, former Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs and at the same time Director of State Security, Llambi Peçini, former Director of the Directorate of Preservation and Physical Security of the senior leadership of the ALP, Llambi Ziçishti, former Minister of Health, Mihallaq Ziçishti, former Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, Nesti Nase, former Minister of Of Foreign Affairs, Fiqret Shehu, (Mehmet Shehu’s wife) former Director of the High School of the Party “Vladimir Ilic Lenin”, Gani Kodra, senior official of the State Security, etc., in the address of the Central Committee of the ALP- and personally Enver Hoxha, Ramiz Alia and Hekuran Isait, a large number of letters flooded from all over the country, where various persons, with or without official functions, workers, peasants, cooperatives, military, pensioners, etc., etc., denounced the “hostile activity” of ” enemies of the people and the Party ”, such as: Kadri Hazbiu, Feçor Shehu, etc.
One of them was Isuf Mullai, originally from Gjirokastra and living in the city of Durrës where at that time he served as an employee of the Hotel “Adriatic” in the coastal city, as for years, he had served as a Security Detective. of the State, infiltrating the governing bodies of the Legality Movement Party in Belgium, (otherwise known as ‘Manush Kelmendi’, the main character in the novel ‘The Diaspora of Cuckoos’ by the writer Nasho Jorgaqi), who in a letter addressed initially the Committee of the Party of the district of Durrës and then the Central Committee of the ALP, has informed in detail and details, casting his doubts on the work and activity of a number of senior staff of the Branch of Internal Affairs of the district of Durrës and key officials of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and State Security in Tirana. For more about this, we know the letter in question by Cufe Mullaj, which memory, .al publishes for the first time and in full, without any cuts.
Letter from Isuf Mullai, (former Albanian agent infiltrated by the Legality Movement in Belgium and France), to the first Secretary of the Party Committee of the Durrës district
Information of the District Party Committee,
First Secretary, Durrës
I, Cufe Mullaj, Member of the ALP, in the light of the Party materials and letters of Comrade Enver Hoxha, as well as the recent events for many enemies in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Defense, since I have been for a while During the effective work of the Ministry of Interior and sent abroad as the detective of the People’s Socialist Republic of Albania, I also have my remarks and opinions which may be useful to the Party and the investigation into the actions of some enemies who are now in prison and at that time I valued them just as they had the posts the party had given them and with the respect that was formerly cultivated for them, as very trusted people, I too as a Party man never thought they could turn out bad guys and enemies sworn.
The persons are:
- Llambi Peçini, by order of the Ministry of Interior, with regular slogans met with me at the end of 1957 or the beginning of 1958 and all the materials collected during two and a half years, both in Greece and in Belgium. He told me when we had the meeting, to better contact any embassy of the People’s Democracies and proposed me to the Czech embassy.
I did not accept this suggestion, saying: I do not believe in the ability of others, telling him that even these days a group of Polish explorers was discovered in Brussels, so I ca not do such a thing: he told me good to see. When he came the second time, he said we left that option, well you said, it is not known what happens. Now I question, why did he want to connect me with the Czechs???
- I do not remember well the year, either in 1961 or in 1962, when I was in a very difficult state of mind from the war going on there, I decided to end my life and at least give a devastating blow to immigration, I wrote a letter to Kadri Hazbi in three pages in handwriting, proposing that: on the feast of November 28 of that year, at a feast which would be attended by about 300 reactionaries, with Abaz Kupi inside and dangerous criminals, exponents, ballistas and zogists .
I just asked for help with four time mines, I would do all the work myself. My letter of request was from October of that year, while in November I received the answer with the liaison, no, even removing a verbal remark from me. , that you cannot go to Julian Amery, while Abaz Kupi that you use, he goes, also for etiquette said; that Kadri Hazbiu had told him, that: a detective like you, we do not sacrifice even with 500, of those that you are killing and destroying every day, so tell Cufes, take that thing out of your mind.
I had nothing to do, that I had no means that I was furious, that I would have done and without his order, so they knew my head and the courier said: I came very quickly because the Minister sent me, not to do anything without order. I told him: I am not satisfied with these answers, but what can I do, I will follow the order of the Party.
So nowadays, I question that the intentions were not what he said, but he wanted to protect them, so I think now that he has sabotaged there???
- Again when I had returned by order to Albania and in 1967 or 1968, in the summer of that year, I discovered in Durrës Tourism, ‘Miss Rulin’ (In the novel “The Diaspora of Cuckoos” by Nasho Jorgaq, it is written: Miss Handerson .Our note), who was the head of American Intelligence based in Athens and directed all emigration against Albania and the Balkans.
And I thought that for our Security, this would be the biggest victory for me personally in the work of the detective. The Ministry of Internal Affairs, Kadri Hazbiu, Rexhep Kolli, Perlat Çaushi, who came to Durrës, met with him in Tirana for three days and then released him as undesirable. There is a big question mark about the work that is being done now.
Perlat Çaushi took the statement from me, how I dictated it and they took it together with Rexhep Kolli in Tirana with him and they know what they did. Only I know that Kadri Hazbiu, Rexhep Kolli, and Kopi Niko, who was the head of the branch in Durrës, and who was said to be a close friend of Kadri Hazbiu, did not even shake my hand to thank me.
I, who was very surprised by this event and said to myself that they do not want to make me dissatisfied with the Party and Comrade Enver, said to myself: I will never do this. So the current events show how they had goals.
So they have to say now why they released the American agent, the Chief of Intelligence for the Balkans and did they inform the Party and Comrade Enver about this important event??
- I add that Kopi Niko and Lirim Pëllumbi have looked at me with the greatest disregard. Of course, the enemy Lirim Pëllumbi came out who he was, what about Kopi?
In economic matters, I have been treated all the time as a simple policeman, with 650 lek per month, but I have never become dissatisfied, given the teachings of the Party they have helped us a lot.
The salary that I asked to increase a little for the effect of my pension, I wrote a letter to the Minister of Interior, they did not take it into account, I wrote a letter to Comrade Adil and he intervened with the Minister of Trade and made me 740 ALL.
I point this out, not that I am a materialist, but to show their considerations for the overseas scout, who had made life and children available to the Party.
- Lirim Pëllumbi a year and a half ago, tried to remove me from Tourism, because I was supposedly old and could not work anymore and wanted, according to the smells, to fall a woman, L.K. who is also a high school English translator at INTERKLUB.
For which, as far as I could smell, he intervened with the former director who was fired, Ibrahim Braho, and the secretary of the Party Bureau, Kasem Bleta, and brought him to do the Party internship at the “Adriatic” counter as a saleswoman. As I found out later, she had to be a floor worker.
We continue the notes.
The enemy, Feçor Shehu, often came in the summer. Especially on Saturdays and Sundays, he played cards with Lirim Pëllumbi, (today an enemy) and Bardhyl Çuçi who were the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Internal Affairs Branch and with the officer Hasan Gashi, servile Nr. 1 of them.
They sometimes even ate lunch, for a regular fee. The waiters served according to the rules. I do not know that he slept in the rooms, but I know that they left the clothes in empty rooms, two or three hours provisionally and went out in bathing suits in the sun, on the runway and there they played the fourth card.
The clothes were left in those non-permanent rooms, for cases of work of the service of the Internal Branch (for interceptions, hearings and supplies of foreigners), without spoiling the work.
We did not care about these things, because we thought, as it was said, that the weapon of the State Security was loyal to the Party, and as it is known, the people and the communists have a duty to help it.
Even I as one of the people of the craft, though they stayed away, thought that: the arrival of these often, would have hostile actions by tourists. These I say are certain. People talk up and down and we hear that they have had hotel rooms and more.
They confirm these with the services I quoted above, which are secret, if the First Secretary knows. These things have been done and are being done with the knowledge of the operative of the Internal Branch that covers Tourism, even the service personnel should not have known or even know about the actions that the Internal Branch of the Hotel does.
They continue to be made even now as they used to be. The operatives for Tourism were the officers: Apostol Çabeli, Naum Shilla, Lutfi Ishmi, Demir Zhupa, Ajaz Isufi, who was also the Deputy Director of Tourism for the last two years.
I wrote to him above, that the Tourism staff is for the nature of work, to work with the State Security that we thought they would take it to the Party.
The message of Hekuran Isa, after the letter of Isuf Mullaj
The issues raised in the letter should be carefully investigated and if they are confirmed, party measures should be taken in state ways. Look at the problems and not the person who made the letter. He may have flaws, but put an end to the matter by clarifying and trusting the information.
6. 11. ’82
The letter of Comrade Cufe, by order of Comrade Simon Stefani, since it raises some problems which may be of interest to the work of the Security, was sent to Comrade Hekuran Isai.
25. X. 1982
Summary of Isuf Mullaj’s letter, sent to the Central Committee of the ALP
The issue is: For some suspicious actions of Kadri Hazbi, Rexhep Kolli, Perlat Çaushi etc.
- When Cufja was a detective abroad, on two occasions he met with him in Belgium, Llambi Peçini, who wanted to connect him with the Czech embassy, but he refused, to see why he did it?
- Being in this task, he had decided that in a celebration of 28 November that would make the Albanian reaction living in Belgium and about 300 people gathered everywhere, from the most dangerous Zogists and reactionaries, to blow up the hall, and wiped out most and him.
He wrote a letter to the former Minister Kadri Hazbiu, to whom he asked for only 4 time mines, but he refused this plan, drawing verbal remarks through the courier and that allegedly this detective, “could not sacrifice even with 500 reactionaries”. He suspects that he did not give this order to sabotage the action and to protect these reactionaries and Zogists.
- In 1967-1968, while working in Tourism, he saw and recognized that among English tourists, there was also ‘Miss Rulin’ who was the head of American Intelligence in Athens, directing all emigration against the Balkans and Albania. This was a success for our detective, so he announced: Kadri Hazbiu, Rexhep Kolli and Perlat Çaushi, who immediately went to Durrës, proved that the detection was real and took the agent to Tirana and after keeping him for three days; they removed him from the country our as undesirable.
It is good to say now, why did they release this agent and did they inform the Party and Comrade Enver about this important event?! Since he was right and followed the line of the Party, they did not like him and tried to remove him from that place, Lirim Pëllumbi and Kopi Niko (close friends of Kadri Hazbiu), because they wanted to bring L.K. English interpreter at ‘Interklub’ where Lirim was a regular client.
Says the secretary of the Bureau of the Tourism Party. Kasem Bleta, was a friend of the Liberation and did not receive instructions in the Party Committee, but in the Internal Affairs Branch, especially for the cadre.
Lirim Pëllumbi often went to Tourism in the “Adriatic”, with Feçor Shehu, Bardhyl Çuçi.
After the 8th Party Congress, Feçor Shehu and Viktor Nushi went three times, in one case from 6 pm to 9 pm, who ate bread, played cards, and ran away, so they were very kind to each other. the other. This has caught the eye of the service.
He also thinks that it is not right for a tourism director to be a Jew. This must be seen, that it is a delicate place.
Note: Hekuran wrote to Isa about these problems, but he found it reasonable to inform the Party and since the Party Committee in Durrës, as if not well received, came here to inform the Central Committee of the ALP. /Memorie.al
