Tirana District Prosecutor
ACT – ACCUSATION
Against the defendant Myrteza Bajraktari, accused of committing the crime of agitation and propaganda against the popular power provided in Article 73/1 of the Criminal Code.
The State Security organs, with the sanction of the General Prosecutor, on November 12, 1970, arrested the defendant Myrteza Bajraktari, after starting from the day of his arrest, molded with bourgeois and nationalist ideology; he made agitation and propaganda against the popular power. , in different directions.
From the investigation, it results:
The defendant Myrteza Bajraktari with a nationalist point of view and an opponent of the socialist system, starting from 1963-1964, demands that in the People’s Republic of Albania, he be treated as a privileged person, unlike all Kosovar emigrants who were here.
He stated that allegedly, the Party and the People’s Power mistreated Kosovars in Albania and were not interested in the rights of the Kosovar people. Over time, the defendant Myrteza Bajraktari, delves deeper into these thoughts and, says low expressions, in the direction of the partisan forces that during the war went to the aid of the Kosovar people.
Witness Xhevair Hasa, in this regard, said: “Myrtezai told me that I came to Albania to help for the liberation of Kosovo and they immediately deported me and do not help the Kosovar people.
He emphasized that: the Albanian partisan brigades that came to Kosovo did not liberate us, but in cooperation with the Yugoslav brigades, enslaved us. “During his stay in Seman, and after establishing full trust in the witness Xhevair Hasa, the defendant Myrteza Bajraktari of speaks openly to him, against the Party and the People’s Power.
Regarding this, this witness says: “During the conversations we had at that time with Myrtezai, he told me that: the communist regime in Albania is vile and that it keeps this people under the rule of force. Likewise for the youth, he said that she has no kind of amusement. ”
From 1965, defendant Myrteza Bajraktari urged witness Xhevair Hasa to pray for his return to Yugoslavia. After Xhevairi made the prayer, Myrtezai instructed him that when he went there, to tell some of the defendant’s acquaintances that the latter was allegedly suffering in exile in Albania and that they should be interested in his withdrawal from Albania to Turkey. .
For the realization of these orders, the defendant Myrteza Bajraktari, gave Xhevair and some identification slogans. This defendant molded with these thoughts and views at the end of 1965 prays to go to Turkey. When witness Halit Llazana advises him to withdraw this prayer, the defendant tells him: “Better to end up as a vagabond in Turkey than to suffer in Albania.”
In 1966, defendants with state scholarships were given the right to continue their higher studies at the State University of Tirana. During this time the defendant instead of giving up this activity, added to it, making conversations of a hostile nature.
Regarding these, the defendant Kapllan Resuli, among other things, testifies: “At the beginning of 1969, I met with Myrteza Bajraktari at his house and then we both went shopping. He told me that a few weeks ago the Albanian authorities had received “A group of Kosovars, without praying, handed them over at the border to the Yugoslav authorities. Like me and Myrtezai, we did not agree with this treatment of Kosovars.”
He had talked to witnesses Ram Buçolli and Adem Istrefi about the alleged mistreatment of Kosovar emigrants in Albania. Thus, for example, the witness Adem Istrefi explains: “From the bad treatment we were given in Seman, said Myrtezai, I went crazy and the friend with whom I had come from Yugoslavia. Take it easy, Myrtezai emphasized, how it was hard for his family, his return from Albania in that condition “.
The defendant Myrteza Bajraktari, slanders and fabricates in the direction of the principled political line that our Party has followed and continues to follow on the issue of Kosovo. Thus, in a conversation that the defendant had with the witness Ram Buçolli, he told him that allegedly Albania has never been interested in the liberation of Kosovo.
Allegedly, the Albanian government before 1948, denounced to the Yugoslav government all Kosovars who came to Albania and told about the crimes committed by the Yugoslavs. And as a result of all this, they surrendered to the Yugoslavs who imprisoned or shot them.
In the summer of 1970, when the defendant Myrteza Bajraktari graduated and was assigned to Berat, he further aggravated his anger against the Party by talking to various people and telling them that his alleged appointment to Berat did not was right, as Enver Hoxha’s regime did not trust Kosovars and appointed them to different districts, not allowing them to work in central departments.
The defendant made these hostile expressions at different times and circumstances to the witness Adem Istrefi and the defendants Faslli Ramadani and Kapllan Resuli. Shortly before the arrest of the defendant Kapllan Resuli, the defendant Myrteza Bajraktari went to his house and during a conversation Kapllani told him to read the so-called “statute program of the National Liberation Front of Kosovo”.
The purpose of this program was to raise Kosovars against the People’s Power Party in Albania. Defendant Myrteza, gets acquainted with the content of this material, by reading it. Although the defendant Myrteza Bajraktari has not pleaded guilty, his hostile activity is fully proven by the statements of witnesses: Xhevair Hasa, Ram Buçolli, Adem Istrefi, Halit Llazana, and by the depositions of the defendants, Faslli Ramadani and Kapllan Resuli.
