The source informs that some time ago, he was in Tirana with his cousin, Shefki Berisha, where he also met with Shefki’s son-in-law, named Myrteza Bajraktari, a Yugoslav emigrant who today continues the Faculty of Language and Literature at the University. He has a wife, Lejla Berisha, Shefki’s daughter.
During the conversations that took place at home, Myrtezai asked the source about Vehbi Hasa, and Ibrahim Hasa, living in Fushë-Mbret, Elbasan, who are residents of the source neighborhood, and told the source that: I want to I meet, because I have a message, after we had a good time in Yugoslavia.
Any other conversation, did not take place and the source did not prolong it. Only that, even the source’s uncle, Sejdi Berisha, when he was in Tirana, at Shefkiu, again Myrtezai was interested in them and told the source’s uncle, that: they have an uncle in Turkey and he likes to attract them to Turkey, like Vehbi and Ibrahim.
What is the purpose of this, says the source, I do not know, as well as what kind of person this immigrant is, but the interest he made for them, caught my attention.
The source says that: his cousin, Shefki Berisha, lives in Tirana, in front of the “Dinamo” Stadium, I do not know what the neighborhood is called, and he works as a shoemaker in a workshop on “Elbasani” Street, his wife (cousin) is a granddaughter of Osman Gazepi. His daughter, who received Myrtezai, graduated from the Artistic High School and works at Radio Tirana, while Myrtezai at the university.
Vehbi and Ibrahim Hasa are brothers, their father and uncle, Xhem Gostivari, were executed as war criminals, they are originally from Gostivar, Yugoslavia, Vehbi is processed in 2 / B, recently they also met a tourist from Turkey, named, Emin Behxhet Serjani, who came to Lushnje, but with a recommendation, also met with them in Elbasan and stayed for two days.
You, in case you are going to Tirana again, take an interest and meet with him and talk, in case he asks again about these, tell him: how do you know them and since when have you not met them. On the other hand, if he comes to Elbasan, let us know when he comes and how many days he will stay, with whom he will talk, try to meet with him, and what conversations he will have with you and others.
- It will be verified who the emigrant Myrteza Bajraktari is and his stay here, as well as his father-in-law, Shefki Berisha.
- In case I come to Elbasan, I will be surveyed with who else I will meet and the agency will be directed to find out what we will talk to Vehbi and Ibrahimi during the meeting.
- Wondering what Vehbi has to do with this immigrant, are they friendly ties, or something else?
It was verified with P.Op. Orhan Plasarin, effective of the Ministry and told us to send this material to the Directorate of Internal Affairs, Tirana.

The man (Qerimi), says Lumturia, told me that he had met his friend, Myrtezana, and Myrtezai had instructed Qerimi not to talk to anyone in these situations, but to stand as if he did not understand what was being done, that he was nest with man, it is very dangerous.
- Verify the exact name of Myrteza, who is said to live in Tirana, who he is and whether it is true that such a Kosovar name appears in Tirana.
- Once clarified, the report should be sent to the Directorate of Internal Affairs, Tirana, to evaluate this report that deals with Myrtezana.
