MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 5TH PLENUM OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF ALP ON OCTOBER 14 AND 14, 1982
COMRADE ENVER HALILI: But why did not you tell the Party that Hulusi Spahiu in 1956 testified that at the Tirana Conference he was in charge of all the problems of the Conference and that he had talked to Beqir Balluku? Is this a fact of importance that you should definitely tell the Party and Comrade Enver?
Secondly, is it important that you had to tell the Party what Teme Sejko deposited in 1960, that Panajot Plaku went to Pashaliman, entered a house where two families lived: a Soviet family and Arif Haskoja. They are of such importance you say, so do I, then why did not you tell these to the Party at that moment? Why do you extend it in vain?
COMRADE PIRRO KONDI: That’s what it means. Why didn’t you say that?
KADRI HAZBIU: More, please, comrade Pirro, I am saying this. It is impossible that I have not said about the case of Arif Hasko, it is impossible (all his friends ask him: to whom did you tell him?).
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: Well, who did you tell? You know the details, as we know you, when needed, now this is not the detail, this is the high betrayal. Let the fugitive Panajot Plaku, the enemy of the Party and the people who had betrayed, come, enter Pashaliman, our base, meet there with the Soviets, with our enemies at that time, because we were at war with them or with Arif Hasko , since then he was a general, Chief of Staff, what was it, what do you think? How can you not say that? Is this the detail? This is high betrayal!!
KADRI HAZBIU: No, it is not a detail, Comrade Adil.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: What is it?
KADRI HAZBIU: I do not know this; I do not remember who I informed.
(All friends express dissatisfaction and anger).
COMRADE PIRRO KONDI: Why did you not go straight to Comrade Enver to tell him?
KADRI HAZBIU: I do not remember who I told him, I do not remember.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: This is another accusation.
KADRI HAZBIU: Order?
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: This is another accusation in continuation of “self-criticism”.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: It is for him, not for others.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Kadriu accuses us, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Who, us?
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: He says he has announced, but he is lying. (Friends: it is a lie).
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: How could Arif Haskoja stay until now without giving an account, as if he had told the leadership that Arif Haskoja had met the fugitive Panajot Plaku?! Until recently, Arif Hasko was a general!! Who would wear it?
KADRI HAZBIU: Oh, friend Hekuran, or friend Hekuran.
COMRADE PILO PERISTERI: He would have told Mehmet Shehu and the latter said: shut up … (laughter).
KADRI HAZBIU: We, Comrade Pilo, can also make assumptions.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: Yes, not assumptions, these are not assumptions.
KADRI HAZBIU: Regarding what Comrade Hekuran says about Panajot Plaku, it was raised that he may have entered the Soviet Union or Arif Hasko and I am sure that we made this fact known at that time.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Did Hulusi Spahiu say about Beqir Balluku in an equivocal way, or did he say it exactly?
KADRI HAZBIU: He said it exactly.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Then why did not you tell the Party?
KADRI HAZBIU: As I see it now.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: How did you see it before?
KADRI HAZBIU: One minute, I do not remember, but one thing is for sure, Comrade Ramiz, that often enemy elements gave and such things. Did this information have to be communicated to the Party?
(All friends express dissatisfaction).
COMRADE NEXHMIJE HOXHA: Hulusi Spahiu was talking about a member of the Politburo and Minister of Defense, and if you told someone and it is understood that you told Mehmet Shehu, and you saw that no action was taken, then to go to Comrade Enver, to the Central Committee, and inform the Party of what Hulusi Spahiu had said about Beqir Balluku.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: And for Kiço Ngjela.
COMRADE NEXHMIJE HOXHA: How do you not say that fact about Beqir Balluku in so many years? Even when Beqir Balluku was convicted, you did not tell the Party to watch. If you told Mehmet Shehu and for you Mehmet Shehu was the Party?
KADRI HAZBIU: No, no, I have never considered it that way, but how it went, to whom I informed, how it was treated; now I do not know.
COMRADE MANUSH MYFTIU: Well, you Kadri, when the plenum of the Central Committee of the Party was held to condemn the treacherous and conspiratorial activity of Beqir Balluku, did you not remember anything?
KADRI HAZBIU: Ë?
COMRADE MANUSH MYFTIU: When the plenum of the Central Committee of the Party for Beqir Balluku took place, did you not remember this fact?
KADRI HAZBIU: No, I did not remember, only when I saw him now, I honestly say that I did not know.
COMRADE MUHO ASLLANI: How do you remember now?
KADRI HAZBIU: Did they tell me, more, how do I know now?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Here, we are saying that he said about Beqir Balluku, Kiço Ngjela and Rrahman Parllaku. They were left out, all of them; let them go free, while Foni Qirkon was interned. Why did you deport Foni Qirko and leave them out?
KADRI HAZBIU: No, I do not know, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: But who knows, I know then?!
KADRI HAZBIU: No, yes, Foni Qirkoja may have had other things, I will see, I do not know now. I can not say why it happened and why it did not happen. This is what I say.
COMRADE NEXHMIJE HOXHA: You did not need Foni Qirkoja.
COMRADE LLAMBI GEGPRIFTI: Well, you do not remember many things, but remember that when our Party increased its fire against Soviet revisionism, you increased the number of Soviet advisers in your ministry? Remember that?
KADRI HAZBIU: I remember her, but I did not want to get involved in that issue, Comrade Llambi.
COMRADE LAMBI GEGPRIFTI: You are introduced; you have it in the material.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: No, there is no such thing in the material. It’s not in the material, where do you get these? There may be later, there is no knowing, we will see.
KADRI HAZBIU: There may be, comrade Enver, whatever is there and I am here, I will answer for what belongs to me.
COMRADE JASHAR MENZELXHIU: After Mehmet Shehu killed himself, Kadriu came and gave information that Mehmet Shehu killed himself as an enemy, but he did not say that he had given him this and this information, and I do not know how much the Party is aware of them. .
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: He came with Ramiz but did not say anything.
KADRI HAZBIU: For what things?
COMRADE JASHAR MENZELXHIU: You know what you said to him.
COMRADE VITO KAPO: What did you say to Mehmet Shehu?
COMRADE JASHAR MENZELXHIU: For the things you said to him. You say that you told Mehmet Shehu in a state way. Well, he killed himself and declared himself a traitor, an enemy, but you did not reflect then and immediately said, I came out to see that I said this and that to this man. Did you say anything to the Party about these?
KADRI HAZBIU: What I remembered, when it was the case I told him that this happened, and this, I remembered everything, but I do not know this.
COMRADE PHOTO ÇAMI: Well, you Kadri, both in “self-criticism” and now speak in general and there is no concrete data on any problem. You only talk about euphoria, familiarity, lack of vigilance and such problems of a general nature, but how have you not reflected all this time, during all these events, to come up with a concrete thing, at least to say that I still remember this fact, and I reflect one way or another. How is it possible not to remember a concrete fact or a concrete event in a concrete place?
COMRADE HARILLA PAPAJORGJI: Following what Comrade Foto said, I wanted to say that Mehmet Shehu killed himself ten or twelve months ago and the Party leadership explained to the whole Party about Mehmet Shehu’s mistakes; you during this time, what help did you give to the Party from all that 35 or 40 years you have been with it, that almost every week, or every two weeks, you have not left the place without wandering about hunting and what conversations you have had. During this time how did you not come to Comrade Enver to say, how to say, to make an incursion of all things and to tell the leadership of the Party?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: In continuation of these.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: For the Tirana Conference of 1956, there are many materials and the Party is taking them out and looking at them. Kadriu was aware, it is not possible not to be aware of the processes that took place, although he says he does not know. As it turns out now from the process, Mehmet Shehu and Fiqrete Shehu, despite this gang of agents who had organized the conference, if he is honest he should tell the Party that Mehmet Shehu then asked him about this and about this, he was interested in these and for these. To say so concretely, but he does not say these things.
KADRI HAZBIU: But he did not ask me, what can I say, to slander? Let me remember now what Mehmet Shehu asked in 1956!!
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: You said that you reported to the Central Committee from the operational point of view, you said that you also informed the Central Committee, but it turns out that you did not inform him at all about major political issues, but maybe you informed him about some criminals and some bandits. Now why did not you come to say that you were in constant contact with Mehmet Shehu and he had told you about it?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Comrade Rexhep, can I ask you a question?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: Yes, Comrade Enver.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: You had an opinion formed in your head, that Kadri had been formed, that if any information about a personality came out, he should not have told the Party, that if he had told him, you would have been called a Trotskyist?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: It is not true. There is platform; there are party norms for such things. These are also in the Ministry of Internal Affairs according to them, for anyone, when something comes out, if it is a slogan or something else or if someone says so and so, etc., the one who gets this data, goes to the Minister of Internal Affairs and he then gives it to the Party.
COMRADE RAMIZ ALIA: Give it to the Party.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: That’s right. Then there is or there is nothing to be verified, to be taken further.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: So, right.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: That the people who have become enemies and collaborators with the enemy, are either protected, or there is a liberalism that is not explained here. I will also come out in this issue that the Party had led us to deal with these problems; this was our duty to distinguish what was hostile and who our people were, whoever they were. And if the problem was important, according to the importance of the issues, Kadriu should have come to Comrade Enver and told him that these materials have come out, this information has come out. It turns out that you, Enver, did not communicate at all with the leadership of the Party. Who did you communicate with? With these top agents? But why does it not reflect now to say that in these meetings, in these conversations, in this information, I have given this data to this and that?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Right.
KADRI HAZBIU: It is a very long time, said Comrade Rexhep.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: This is not the work of a data; it is a delicate work, a long work.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: These are works of principles, Kadri, they are not a matter of time. Memorie.al
