Subject: For violation of the sea border and some related problems.

COMRADE SIMON STEFANI
During the period January – November 1982, by the patrols of the Naval Navy of Vlora, Saranda and the service units of the Border Crossing Point in Durrës, 16 foreign “tourist” vessels were caught and escorted to the seaports. 49 persons, of which 9 Greek citizens, 9 Italian citizens, 17 Austrians, 8 West Germans, 2 Australians, 1 Dutchman, 1 Tunisian, 1 Moroccan, and 1 other unidentified.
Of these, 34 are male, and 15 are female. According to the age group they appear 2 people 10-15 years old, 24 people 20-30 years old, 9 people 31-40 years old, 10 people 41-50 years old, and 4 people over 50 years old. According to the educational level, 9 people with primary, 3 people with 8 years old, 14 people with secondary, and 22 with higher.
Preliminary investigations for these border trespassers were conducted in free conditions, in the premises of our hotels, and their vehicles, with the exception of one Yugoslav citizen and 5 Italian citizens, arrested in Durrës.
Following the investigation, 4 of the Italian citizens were sentenced to 4-5 years in prison each, on condition of “illegal violation of our state border”, and the confiscation of their two vessels. For an Italian woman as well as a Yugoslav citizen, investigations into “minor social risk” were suspended.
These and the probationers were released, escorting them to Italy and Yugoslavia, via the border points in Rinas and Hot. For lack of obedience to the patrols for the protection of our maritime border, two of the border trespassers were annihilated, of which 1 was an Italian citizen in the capacity of a smuggler, killed in the Karaburun region in Vlora, and another foreign citizen, unidentified for lack of documents, killed on 4.11.1982 near the military point in Kakome of Saranda.
From the inspection of the scene, as well as from the act-expertise of the items found at the scene, it was concluded that he came illegally through the sea through a double-decker launcher of Greek production, descending into the territory for espionage purposes.
While other border violations for lack of evidence, for hostile activities against the Socialist People’s Republic of Albania, have been left free to leave our country by boat to the countries of origin.
Violations of the sea border have been justified by the allegations that: “they have lost orientation due to technical defects, loss of orientation, etc. In order to shorten the journey from the Italian ports, to the Greek islands or vice versa, etc.”.
In the Italian, German, and Australian “tourist” floating speedboats, we have attracted the attention of the crew, liaison, photography, surveillance equipment, and especially the notes of the Italian crew, who on the work maps had laid the course of the cruise at the points of stay. in the vicinity of our coast from Cape Gjuhëza to the vicinity of the Vivari Canal, in the vicinity of which there are military units and restricted areas of our coast, which are the object of study and observation for foreign Discoveries and possible landing sites. gang.
During this period, our maritime border has been violated in over 70 cases, 80 other Greek fishing and tourist vehicles, and with the flags of western countries, about 150 people who have come from Corfu and entered the Gulf of Saranda. After our warnings, they left in the direction of Corfu.
In some cases, Greek fishermen have asked our fishermen on the hunt “to make friends with you as colleagues of a profession, they have offered you lighters, pens, cigarettes, alcoholic beverages, etc.” It has been fixed that maritime border trespassers have been stranded in different places as, various objects have been found in the water. Their embarkation areas are Cape Rodon, estuary of the river Mat, Karaburuni, Stillo, etc.
Also in these countries, reaction materials were found wrapped in plasma bags thrown against our country. Based on the above, it turns out that these violations were committed with concrete diversionary intentions against the Socialist People’s Republic of Albania. This is reinforced not only by the number of vessels and their crews, but also by the data corresponding to the external Security bodies.
In the current situation after the detection and unmasking by the Party of traitors and agents: Mehmet Shehu, Kadri Hazbiu, Feçor Shehu, Llambi Peçini, etc., it is quite possible that foreign intelligence is pulsating, recognizing the situation to land saboteurs, individuals and gangs armed on our coast, as they did with Xhevdet Mustafa’s gang.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has also been notified about these violations and other provocations on the land border with Greece. During the apprehension, escort, and preliminary investigations with the maritime border trespassers, on the basis of and orders given, there was no concern in relation to them. Bed, food, and fuel, for when they needed it, were supplied in cash, at our prices.
However, in the work with the captives as violators of the maritime border, some problems have arisen with which we think they require solutions:
- Until now, maritime border trespassers are housed in tourism hotels, facilities that are unsuitable for effective operational and investigative work with them. As a result, their full, physical security is not done, the norms on secrecy are violated, investigations are not conducted with due seriousness. We are of the opinion that the Branches of Internal Affairs of Vlora, Durrës, Lezha, Pogradec, Korça, Kolonjë and Gjirokastra, through the authorities, to provide apartments necessary for this purpose, as some other border branches have.
- From the port captaincies, no attention has been paid to the medical examination of foreigners, which leaves room for the spread of epidemics. Doctors and quarantine premises are used only for the crews of foreign merchant ships. In the future, it is necessary for foreigners to enter our ports, to undergo medical examination.
- From our bodies in the districts, and the port captaincies, in no case have they exercised the fine against these foreigners, provided by law. We think that case by case, and based on the guilt committed, as a preventive measure, fines should be applied to them.
- So far, two seized motorboats and 9 motorboats and rubber and plastic foriboret found at sea by our fishing boats by the sea, by service patrols, and by the residents, 7 of which are in Saranda, 1 are kept in storage. Vlora, and 3 Durrës.
In addition to the measures by the operational sector to discover the causes of the emergence of these vehicles on the ground, as a real opportunity for their use by saboteurs gangs for hostile activities against our country, we think that a rule should be set for these vehicles, where are preserved, who will guard them, and whether they can be transferred to military units or various economic enterprises for use.
- The comrades of the Navy in some cases, claim that they have allowed in many cases the violation of our maritime border by foreign ships and motorboats, which have been presented to you as vehicles and crew going or returning from Durrës with a cargo for the sector of Qazim Mufti .
We are of the opinion that this problem should be viewed with benefit for keeping this channel open or closed, because they are used by foreign intelligence for espionage activities against our country, and their control is insufficient. Memorie.al
