Report dated 2/VI/1970
The source informs that during the conversations he had with Bardhok (Mark) Marku on 30/V/1970, Bardhok told him that: the groups down in the villages and in the city do not do much work: this did not spread to the top in the government and in the Central Committee, said Bardhoku, I have discussed this work many times with Shtejfa Kurti and Agostin Preçi. This work, said Shtjefën Kurti, explains Bardhoku, would have been completed when Koçi Xoxe was the Minister of Internal Affairs, but he did not start with the goats, but he started with the goat, he arrested some people and killed some others and thought that by removing the Shehu, Hoxha from the government, he would have it in his hand whenever he wanted, but the right was that he had to start with Enver and Mehmet, these two, either kill him, or tie them up and put them in prison, then all others would be subject to this one.
This mistake went to this and several others. The same mistake was repeated by Tuk Jakova, continued Bardhok, who thought to return the system with politics, explaining to the members of the government and the Central Committee that, where this system was leading them and acted as a fool, he had the opportunity to kill Enver Hoxha and Mehmet Shehu, after all, he used to hang out with them and when he had eliminated them, then he would have taken over all the work, since he came after Enver and Mehmet. Because of this mistake, the captain was also punished, because he did not act wisely. What are you doing Enver Hoxha? He acted like Tosca’s wise saying “wise, soft and full of pan” and Enveri bani: “wise and soft and full of spit”, adding all his opponents one by one after he is clarified as the Hodge boy that he is.
The Italian, Shtjefën Kurti told me, has his own duck as the king of duck hunting. What does the Italian do? I take the sandal and put it in the marsh or in a place where the ducks come, there I tie two ducks and I see myself through the bushes. The ducks that are in the sandal start making ge..g..ga. When they hear their voice, the other ducks go and follow the voice, and then the hunter who is ready to kill them says all. Enver Hoxha and Mehmet Shehu should have been treated in the same way, but if they were to be killed or put in prison, all the others would either come to sign the statement and follow the right path, or you had them in your hands when you wanted Enver Hoxha and Mehmet Shehu have been taking security measures for themselves for a few years now, they don’t go out in public anymore, but they go out very rarely, almost once every three to four years, and when they do go out they are many people from the Security, dressed as civilians, who guard the people and now it is difficult to kill them because they are guarded a lot.
Enver Hoxha has a son who looks a lot like him. Enveri has been keeping him in the Palace for several years and teaching him about everything. He is learning all his habits and instincts and he has already seen this in his own country, as he is now getting old and approaching 70 years old and is not able to do the job. I will do this quickly without leaving the job well. If he managed to hang this in his own place, that time I will mourn for the people, who will continue the path of their faith as he has learned. You have sold these things to us with Agostin Preçi. I have been to Agostini’s house many times, I drank brandy and we talked about the task we shared to give signals by means of fires, but we would do this when we were ordered. Agostin Preçi was at my house, you drank brandy and you listened to the radio on the Voice of America and the Soviet Union, but here Agostini told me that they killed Panajot the Elder with the help of their spies in Yugoslavia. Panayiot was killed in a car; they have a lot of spies abroad, after the first big spill for espionage.
Agostin Preçi is friends with Luigj Vate; and Palok Deda, but rather he has company with Luigji because Luigji is the smallest and most skilled among all the other mountaineers. The source told him that you, Bardhok, are a very weak man, despite the fact that you have no schooling. He said that I have not learned all this now, but I have years. Pjeter Zef Miri put me in these brackets, but I always escaped their loop, because I measured the step, while now, I fell into the loop, only because of Zef Nish’s stupidity, because if it wasn’t for this, I would never have been caught. .
In order to specify the further activities of Shtjefën Kurti and Agostin Preçi, after he returns from the investigator Bardhoku, you tell them: Have they been asked about Shqefni and what did you tell them, not to fall in because it is possible that Shtjefni was injured more than you or Agostini hurt him, so you remain in hostile positions, because the priest burdens himself, so I think you should go deeper in this direction.
To ask the investigator to insist more in the direction of the priest and Augustine, in order to force him to affirm and at the same time put him in such a position to ask for the opinion and help of B.p. which I will take it to the further breakdown.
Rating of the giver:
The data has operational value due to the fact that it shows that there is extensive and organized activity between Bardhok and Shqefni, on the other hand it turns out that Bardhok also has connections with Pjetër Mir, who was already shot in 1958, while on the other hand other Agostni, who turns out to be a spy, also reveals a connection with Stejfni and Luigj Vata.

Report dated 6/17/1970
The source announces that on 14/06/1970, they started the conversation with Nikollë Noka from the end. Nikola said to this: did you hear about the case of Dom Shqefan Kurti who was with me? He says yes, but he doesn’t know why. Nikola said about the thefts that took place in Gurëz, it seems that this one will also have a hand, but Domi said Nikola, there are not only thefts, but there are also other things, and for this reason they put him in prison for hostile activity, but can they get rid of him, he is very old, he is afraid that something could happen to him, he took me out too…!
Then once I did not willingly agree to save Rroku, but later I agreed that I was put on bail and I had nothing else to do. Continuing the conversation, Nikola said that the people of Gurzi have wronged him. They stole because they didn’t have anything to eat because they didn’t get anything from the cooperative, that’s why they should be released and not deported and put in prison, said Nikola…! For myself, I have said that: “with collective work and agricultural cooperatives, you don’t work because you don’t get anything; otherwise you will steal like those from Gurzi, who were put in prison.” The conversation did not continue any longer.
1- Meet with Nikollë Noka and in the conversation talk again about the case of Dom Shqefa Kurti, telling Nikollë yes and with …….. more important is work than politics, as it seems they will have put them in prison, just like they put my father in for solving the propaganda, entering the ………. what about you Nikola?
The implication drawn during the process of …..In collaboration with B.p.
The former priest Shtejfën Kurti was finally released from prison and as far as I remember from 1966, he came to Gurëz village and for a while stayed with his brother Kel Kurti, but later they left there and the People’s Council sheltered him in a building in Alk, which used to be Koop’s offices. Bujqësore, so he stayed for one more year in the house of Tom Nokë Leka and recently lived in the house of Skurt Mark Biba.
Adhering to all his reactionary clerical ideals, Shtjefan Kurti continued his hostile work, showing dissatisfaction with popular power and praising the bourgeois capitalist system.
Below I am giving some examples:
In November 1969, one night when Pjeter Mark Biba had the dinner of the pig he had drowned, I, Zef Nishi, Uk Kosova were at Pjeter’s and later the former priest Shtjefën Kurti came there. In our conversations with him, we told him why the Vatican, the country of the greatest religious leaders, blesses wars, gives Americans the right to fight in Vietnam, or why the Pope allowed the occupation of Albania. Shtjefni did not accept that the Vatican and the Pope have blessed the wars, he did not believe in the news of our press and when you were stuck in the conversation he added that: I don’t like to talk with soda youth. In another case, I only caught up with him about the equality that he called unfair and said that: “a person has the right to accumulate as much capital as possible, since God has spared his eyes, mouth and mind and through him without the faithful, he has opportunity to live and the poor who is lazy”.
In another conversation that I had with him in the presence of his brother, Kel Kurti, in front of the room where Shtjefni lived, he told me: “It seems that our relations with Yugoslavia are normalizing, that’s what I heard on the local (Yugoslav) stations.” At this time, his brother Keli got up and changed the radio station, but as soon as there was a noise, we didn’t hear it”.

Report dated 6/22/1970
The source announces that during the talks that took place on 19/6/1970 with Prena Shkurt Biba from Gurëzi, about the arrest of Shtjefën Kurti, a resident of her house. Prena tells him: “I never agreed that we should take a man without a priest, who lived in a lonely room, but what to do with the man who did not ask me. Shtjefni was quite a bad-hearted person, when someone came to him, he kicked us out, so we wouldn’t listen to him, he made the house a center where people came. You deal with other religious affairs”.
On the previous day, he also met with Dava Pjeter Biba, an 18-year-old girl, and during the conversation, Dava said: “While staying at home, I once served the former priest Shtjefë Kurti, who lived in the room of my uncle Shkurt Mark, if I tell you that they did well to catch him, you didn’t know how vile he was, he kicked me out of the room several times, when people came to talk to him. They were people who came to celebrate mass and gave him gifts, but he would take me out so that I wouldn’t see them.
I continue the lawsuit, I provoked Shtjefni often, I told him: When you were a priest, why didn’t you take your sisters and nieces as servants, but the daughters of the world, and he said to me: Don’t talk, because my day is coming, I will take himself in Italy, and I told him: Italy is dead for you. One day Shtjefni had put some beans in the fur sweater. I said to him: why did you steal them and he told me that I took my sweat and repeated this word several times. On one occasion I spoke to him about the origin of man from ape, but he told me that those who explain it like that are your friends; I had no business with them.
On another occasion, I asked Shtjefni that: if your day comes, what will you do, and Shtjefni said that if my day comes, I will tie up Enver Hoxha and take him for a walk all over Albania.
Shtjefni constantly listened to Italy and Pristina on the radio, but when he listened to the news, he took us out and let us listen to Italy on the stations, when there was a bridge and when there were songs like that and Prishtina. I add Dava, I have seen that many people came to Shtjefni, such as Pjeter Mirashi was there for Easter, he drank brandy.
Luigj Vata has been, even once he has had lunch, Uk Kosova, Llesh Kola, Gjergj Toma, Ndue and Gjergj Vata, two kulak brothers, Llesh Vata has been to take mass, Tom Noka, his nephew Ded Noka, to the houses of which he lived. Kulaku Martin Frroku, who gave him another 500 new lek, but why he doesn’t know; The victim of Ded Koleci, whose son was shot, Dila e Ndue Prek Ucit kulak and her husband who has been in prison and sentenced for 20 years. The wife of Nikollë Mir, a kulak by family, Gjon Maç Gjoka and his wife to take mass, who also gave him a lek, his brother Kel Kurti, has been constantly here, he also has his coat”.
1) To talk again with Prena and Dava, to learn from them what other things they know about Shtjefa Kurti and other persons who have been arrested in Gurëz.
2) To work with Prena and Dava and indirectly, without realizing it, you encourage them to come and denounce what they know about Shtjefa Kurti and other people.
B.p. The one who gives this data was withdrawn to the service of our bodies, with the date 18/6/1970, so this is his first report.
1). The report has operational value because it clearly reveals the activity of Shqefan Kurti against the ruling party.
1). The report is printed and a copy is sent to Branch V, which has Shtjejfë Kurti as the investigator.

Report dated 6/22/1970
The source announces that he met with Kel Kurti, the brother of the detainee Shtjefën Kurti from Gurëzi, and during the talks Keli told him: “They told my brother that your accommodation in Pjetër Shkurt Marku’s house is not suitable, because they are suspicious for irregular attitude towards the goods of the cooperative, yes he told me I am aware of this fact, so don’t worry about this issue, after my work (actions) with each one, suitable according to the character they have. Stejfni, – says Keli, will have talked about something with those in prison that harms him, listening to the radio or commenting on the newspaper. To express their dissatisfaction with the work and the remuneration they receive. This is the doctrine with which the former priests fought, so there is nothing to be surprised when the clergy are brought in for nothing. Shtjefni, – continues Keli, will die in prison, that’s how much his work was, and even if I’m able, I can’t help him”.
1) Talk to Kelly again and clarify in conversations with him:
a) Where did Keli know and how did he know that Pjetri and Skurt Marku were not regular with the cooperative’s goods?
b) Why didn’t Keli keep his brother at home?
c) How much is Keli aware of the activities of Shtjefën Kurti and the people in the process and did they call him to question him?
1) Kel Kurti is the brother of Shtjefën Kurti, who is in custody and in the investigation of the Ministry. As far as this data shows, he is aware of his brother’s activities.
1) The report should be printed and immediately sent to the Ministry, the Vth Branch, which has the investigator’s office. Memorie.al
