MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 5TH PLENUM OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF ALP ON OCTOBER 14 AND 14, 1982
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well, I agree. Sit there, and then tell them. You Kadri go on.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, comrade Enver, what can I say now? Regarding the issue that Comrade Hekuran says, I have raised it, let it be verified as it stands.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: We will verify that there are many things there.
KADRI HAZBIU: Agreed, as much as there is, Comrade Enver. I do not have to argue.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: The work does not wait until the verification for these things is done, it will take time.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, and I do not remember, I raised it as a problem to see.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well, let’s see.
KADRI HAZBIU: To clarify things, it is good to stand up as they are. Why did I not say that all these people who were sentenced to death, were executed according to legend? They were executed according to the rules, but in two cases that were executed in function of the legend, I told Comrade Hekuran and he let him verify them. Other?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Next, here is what I told you.
KADRI HAZBIU: In Kamza, says comrade Behar, I spoke with fire in favor of Koçi Xoxes. Maybe they are the minutes. I spoke in Kamza, I raised something against Mehmet Shehu, as far as I remember, how I judged them at that time, but further I do not know to say that I spoke fervently about Koçi Xoxen. It’s one thing I do not remember, they say since 1948.
COMRADE QIRIAKO MIHALI: How do you remember the others, while you do not remember these important things?
KADRI HAZBIU: Please, come out, friends. I remember speaking, saying something against Mehmet Shehu, I considered him a careerist at the time. What I said next I do not know.
COMRADE SOTIR KOÇOLLARI: Why do you remember what you said about Mehmet Shehu and what you said about Koçi Xoxen?
KADRI HAZBIU: I remember him because he was obsessed with me, but I did not talk about Koçi Xoxen. I then spoke pro.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: What did you say about Koçi Xoxen about the 8th plenum of the Central Committee for the Yugoslavs?
KADRI HAZBIU: And it could have been spoken. I came from the Soviet Union at that time, because I was in school. As soon as I arrived we went to Kamza’s assets. What do you have? I stood there for five or ten minutes and stood in solidarity with that thought. Here it is.
COMRADE THIMIE THOMAI: From what I have noticed when Government meetings were held and there were problems and interventions and as Mehmet Shehu had, he answered with great embarrassment when he raised a problem that he did not like, he rushed, if there was no one who calmed him down was Kadri Hazbiu.
As he intervened, Mehmet Shehu calmed down and constantly referred to Kadriu’s discussion, saying: “as Kadriu said”, “Kadriu had a very good discussion”, etc., and thus he occupied an important place in government meetings.
Therefore, it is strange what Kadriu says “I did not know he did not give it to me” etc. In this man we have not seen a hairy man, even he held himself minister after minister. Recently, when the Central Committee and Comrade Enver harshly criticized the method of working and leading in economic and state bodies, Kadri Hazbiu emerged victorious, who had one of the most revolutionary methods, and called on the ministers and said that we should be partisan. , to dismantle the Party directives, as if only he did them. But in fact he did the opposite!!
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, yes, forgive me.
COMRADE THIMIE THOMAI: Oh, do not interrupt me.
KADRI HAZBIU: If I did not do it myself, my.
COMRADE THIMIE THOMAI: I do not know how you did it. You did as you said in “self-criticism”, that: “I missed the ideo-political work”, while you preached the opposite. It’s not that you were a hairy man, we noticed that.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: What you are saying now, Mrs. Thimie, I have heard from many other friends of the government. They came to me and talked to me about the interventions and corrections that Kadriu made arrogantly. Therefore I understand you and give you the right.
COMRADE THIMIE THOMAI: And another thing impressed me: When the Criminal Code was discussed, of course how do we judge it now, that we did not know then that Mehmet Shehu was a spy and a sworn enemy of the Party and the people, but when he came When it came to sentences, Mehmeti was dismissed and said: “but we will not always have an Minister of Interior, Kadri Hazbiu”.
KADRI HAZBIU: Si?
COMRADE THIMIE THOMAI: So, when it came to discussing the article that had to do with sentences, the use of violence, I do not remember well which article was in question, because I do not know the Criminal Code well, I remember that Kadri made a remark and Mehmet Shehu jumped up and said: “We will not always have a partisan Interior Minister like Kadri Hazbiu”!
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: You meant that someone else will come, that Kadriu will go elsewhere.
COMRADE THIMIE THOMAI: The question arises: how is it possible that being for 30 years Minister of Internal Affairs had not understood anything of the activity of these enemies!? We have seen Kadri as the man who could appease Mehmet Shehu; if he told him an opinion, Mehmet Shehu agreed and immediately calmed down, if it was for others…!
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Regarding what Comrade Rexhep Kolli said, I want to know if there is in the archive, in the files of the convicts, a document by a certain Vango Mitrojorgji, where he says: “We have made mistakes and crimes, but if there are made mistakes and crimes is Mehmet Shehu, Fiqrete Shehu “, Kadri Hazbiu also speaks. Now, you Kadri answer the questions of comrade Xhelil, because I see that I am not comfortable.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, I agree. What would happen if these were not discovered, says Comrade Xhelil. I say catastrophe would happen. Albania would return to capitalism. Is this a small responsibility for me? No, it’s too heavy.
COMRADE ENVER HALILI: Suppose Mehmet Shehu and other enemies would stage a coup against the Party. We are clear that the people and the leadership of the Party would oppress him, but what would the Party say to you? What would you say to the Party and what would the Party and the people say about you?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: You were the Minister of Internal Affairs.
COMRADE ENVER HALILI: Are we dealing here, according to your “self-criticism”, with an ideological mistake, or are we dealing with a mistake and criminal guilt, even in very aggravating circumstances?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Clearly. To answer.
KADRI HAZBIU: If it happened, I would pay with my own head.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Like that?!
KADRI HAZBIU: I know how to say this, because I would be against them.
FRIENDS: She is unknown.
KADRI HAZBIU: Well, I say as I judge, so I judge.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: She does not know what the facts are?
KADRI HAZBIU: Well, there are no facts, there are no facts. I say if it happened, I would pay for it with my head.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: He would make a heated discussion against the coup!!
KADRI HAZBIU: I am not very good at discussions, Comrade Hekuran (laughs).
(All the friends of the plenum at one time oppose him saying: You are very agile).
KADRI HAZBIU: Well, thank you for the evaluation. What can I say?!
(Shefqet Peçi gets up. Talk to Shefqet and we will listen to you, – says friend Enver).
COMRADE SHEFQET PEÇI: You are agile, there is no one else! (Laughter). You are as smart as anyone else. Since I got up I am saying my opinion: When the ranks were, Feçor Shehu was promoted so many times outside the rules. If the ranks were still in force, Feçori would have become a marshal (laughs).
For Feçori, Kadriu had the greatest sympathy, he honored him, he loved him, and he supported him a lot, so how did he not know Feçori’s attitudes? Kadri does not even fly and not let him know about it. It is not possible that he, being Minister of Interior for 30 years in a row, did not know these!! It’s impossible!! He must openly say that this work is over.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: So, we ask him to speak openly.
COMRADE SHEFQET PEÇI: This work ended, but the people have spoken since Mehmet Shehu killed himself and said: what about Kadri Hazbiu? That Kadri Hazbiu was inside with Mehmet Shehu. Mehmet Shehu could not work without a cap without Kadri Hazbina. Come on then talk! (Laughter).
COMRADE PETRO DODE: How is it that he did not read and did not inform about the Tirana Conference, about Hulusi Spahiu and about the others, which are talked about in the material we read!? He just as diligently read any information and even when he was not given information, he would make remarks, criticize.
That is, he made remarks to others that had nothing to do with him and he has no knowledge of those that were directly related to him?! The same discussions in the government with Mehmet Shehu that he agreed on the insults and other things and then made fun of them, and about these he says: “he has not seen them”.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Why are you, Kadri, lying to these friends? Defamation? Why do not you speak openly, as comrade Shefqet Peçi told you? Tell the Party openly.
KADRI HAZBIU: What can I say, comrade Enver, what can I say?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: You know what to say, to speak openly.
KADRI HAZBIU: Shall I say that I am an enemy?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Well, these friends are lying that they are talking about you?
KADRI HAZBIU: What can I say?
COMRADE RAQI IFTICA: Here is what he means, Comrade Enver: why, in order to investigate conspiracies such as that of Beqir Balluku, did he put people who were polite and immoral? That’s what it means.
KADRI HAZBIU: Okay, okay.
COMRADE RAQI IFTICA: That’s right. Why did he put these people, he did not know what kind of people they were?
KADRI HAZBIU: But who were these immoral people?
COMRADE RAQI IFTICA: I am talking about Rustem Hodo and Kristofor Martiri.
COMRADE TEFTA CAMI: We have learned that Feçor Shehu was one of the dirtiest xoxists in the district of Dibra, who acted in a very, very ugly way. The question arises: how did he not know that he was taking Feçori to put him in charge of the Ministry of Internal Affairs?
KADRI HAZBIU: For whom?
COMRADE TEFTA CAMI: For Feçor Shehu, who has been one of the dirtiest xoxists.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes. Memorie.al
