He reports that regarding the composition of the government, he had the following expressions from the convicts in Ward 321 in Burrel:
Vaskë Gjino, in one case during the airing said: “In the published photos, the president of the High Court did not catch my eye”?
Rrahman Parllaku, continued: “I did not see it either, and this does not mean either this or that. A few days ago he was delegated to the feast of Kurvelesh. He was in a post where there was a lot of interference. I know he has faced them, even getting the consent of the Party leader. But how he stayed, I do not know… ”!
Kiço Ngjela, says: “Not without tendency, the photos of the former Minister of Finance and our former ambassador to China have been published twice in a row. There may be words in their address. “Pictures are an answer.”
Regarding the Albanian Ethnogenesis Conference, there were the following expressions:
Xhavit Qesja, said: “Many personalities, scholars from other countries have come. They are professors. It honors and delights us. Now do our best to ensure through the custodian what has been published and will be published. If we are late, we will miss them, so please be interested. Only Romanian scholars have come from the East, Bulgarians are missing. “They are interested, yes, among other things, they may have retaliated for the fact that the president of our Academy of Sciences did not accept the title given to him by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences two or three years ago, declaring him an honorary member.”
Lipe Nashi said: “Hazbi Lamçe, searched and could not find the name of Sami Muhamet. He came and asked me what they call the one who was the ambassador in Italy, from your village “. I said no, he was not an ambassador, but an advisor on economic issues. “He calmed down, went and threw a report.”
Taking advantage of this, Kiço Ngjela said: “I wrote and talked to Sami Muhameti and Petro Takun about the investigator. For both, the Party leader made a “suspicious” note. The second was prosecuted and convicted. They were dependent. I have known them as both. Only one thing has impressed me since I was in the investigator. Investigators have made many efforts to rehabilitate Sami Muhamet.
I played all the stones, to give up my deposits. I did not withdraw. I do not know what happened to them. Do I now understand why? Because Feçori and Samina were both cousins and close friends. A special connection.
Yes the investigators were related to Feçori. One of the points we opposed was that of fishes. Sami Muhamameti, had not left a leader from those he knew, without fish, including Mehmet Shehu. “They did not want to highlight this fact either.”
Clarification; Vaskë Gjino and Xhavit Qesja, are convicted anti-party and are being prosecuted by us in active processing 2 / A as such.
Rrahman Parllaku, Kiço Ngjela and Hazbi Lamçe, are convicted as anti-party, we have information against them that they carry out hostile activity.
Assessment: The report has operational value in it emerges the reactions of the anti-party element for the development of the work of the People’s Assembly, the Albanian Ethnogenesis Conference and the hostile activity of the enemy Mehmet Shehu and his followers.
Duty: B.p. gave you the task to talk again with this convict, regarding the hostile activity of the enemy Mehmet Shehu and his followers, if they were aware of this activity, if they were aware of their connections, who and where they are, what hostile activities have performed. Why is Hazbi Lamçja so interested in Sami Muhameti, what relations did he have with him before, how are they related, etc.
Operational Measures: The report should be studied by the leadership of the Branch. To be printed according to the implications, a copy should be sent to the first Directorate in the Ministry.

He reports that Xhavit Qesja, unlike other times, certainly about what he was thinking about, collected the books and the dictionary and put them in a place that he showed to Lipe Nashi. This time he did not send any message; he did not welcome his mother sending him money and said to him: “I wrote to him not to send me money.”It irritates me.”
Then today I noticed how Kamberi provoked me. I did not ask for it to be late. Why do you insult me? I could not tell her why I did not eat. I wanted to tell him. He did not wait for me or listen to me. The next time the commander told me I do not want to know what you wrote to the party leader. This is your right, as well as everyone to judge. What do you say?
He said: “This is your case. You called it a strike, a coup against power, law, and command. The same words are not said by different people. Yes, everyone condemns your attitude, even here Xhevit was silent.
Clarification: XHavit Qesja is convicted as an anti-party and is being prosecuted by us as such in active processing 2 / A. He has been on a hunger strike for several days because he has sent several letters to the leadership and the request for isolation, removal from the conspirators and coup plotters and deafness and blindness from the press have not been met.
Duty: B.p. gave you the task to learn the real reason for the announcement of the hunger strike by Xhavit Qesja. Why does he demand deafness and barking, what will he achieve with the hunger strike. What is his relationship with the other anti-party convicts, with which of them he has the closest relationship, how does he react to the suicide of the enemy Mehmet Shehu, since he always addressed the letters in this direction.
Operational Measures: Data to be studied by Branch managers. Print it in a copy and place it in the form folder.
Talk to the ward command so that the service personnel behave correctly towards the convicts and do not speak uncontrollably, and do not give them cause to disturb the Party leadership for our reckless actions.

The tasks of the plan of agency-operative measures dated 24.11.1981, in the direction of the object of active processing 2.A Xhavit Qesja, which is followed as an anti-party element for agitation of hostile propaganda, have been realized as follows:
- It is run with the B.p. “Butrinti”, who has given in the direction of the facility for the hostile activity that takes place in the ranks of other convicts. Has provided facility links to this department. It also turns out that the object has recently been withdrawn in solitude and only in rare cases and talks to special persons.
- In the direction of the object is directed with line behavior Bp. The “penitent”, who has given in his direction, for the hostile activity he carries out in the ranks of other convicts, has given for his connections in this ward. It has not yet been possible to find out from whom he pardoned his release from prison.
- No combination has been made with T.O. between the facility and the convicted anti-party Kiço Ngjela, because the facility was ill and was not seen as reasonable to be isolated in solitary confinement rooms. Another opportunity for this action has not yet been created.
- It was checked by the command with the assistance of the Operational Worker, notes, translations, correspondence and literature that the facility has and no compromising material was found in charge of the facility.
- The correspondence and meetings that the facility has held with its connections outside the prison have been checked and assisted and it has been ascertained that so far the facility and its connections outside the ward have not used these channels to conduct hostile activity or exchange slogans or signals for relate to outside prison./Memorie.al
