MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 5TH PLENUM OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF ALP ON 13 AND 14 OCTOBER 1982
KADRI HAZBIU: Work of principles, comrade Enver, and so on.
COMRADE JOVAN BARDHI: According to the Platform, the chairman of the district Internal Affairs Branch, if he has a problem for the communists, himself to the first secretary of the district Party Committee. The party punishes, holds the Branch chairman accountable, if he does not notify the first secretary of the district Party Committee. Then with his approval, if it is seen right, it goes further. How is it possible that he, being the Minister of Internal Affairs, has such problems and does not come to the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Party and inform him?
Secondly, I was very impressed by the material we heard last night from the Politburo, that he was commissioned to help Comrade Hekuran, but it turned out that he had avoided this help. Why was it avoided? Why did he leave this? Did he leave because he was afraid for himself?!
KADRI HAZBIU: Now let me, Comrade Enver, answer for these, what can I say and now, I am done…!
As for the platform, Comrade Jovan, it is true, but it applies to everyone, not just me. Even for those enemies who have come out in Tirana, perhaps the relevant district has been notified. Those that have come to me, now how do I say? This is a long time ago, there are issues that I could have informed Comrade Enver, and there are issues that I have reported to the relevant secretary. One thing I do know is that I did this to Mehmet Shehu and did not tell my comrades in the apparatus of the Central Committee of the Party, it is unbelievable.
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: If you say yourself that if you did such a thing, you would be called a Trotskyist.
KADRI HAZBIU: Order?
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: You yourself say that if you did such a job, you were afraid of being called a Trotskyist. You said that in the Politburo.
KADRI HAZBIU: I will explain this, forgive me.
COMRADES ENVER HOXHA and PALI MISKA: It is written.
KADRI HAZBIU: It is written, if it is read as it is written, comrade Paul.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: That’s what you said.
KADRI HAZBIU: I have said and I say that such pressure was exerted by them on the Security. What does this mean? Ever since such material came out about a man, he understands.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: But why was it not done on Rexhepi?
KADRI HAZBIU: Comrade Enver, later we set such a rule, that the operational security officer, who takes the data, makes a note, does not take the information from the source, but formulates it himself and presents it later, because it became a problem for us, that when people heard that it was about a cadre, he withdrew, did not give information. This is how it is understood. How much we have been able to put it into practice with all these efforts is another matter.
COMRADE ARANIT ÇELA: Regarding the data from the enemies, the investigation for Beqir Balluku continued for months.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes.
COMRADE ARANIT ÇELA: Such an interesting fact that they had the files about him, that we have verified now and that you knew, could not be used? Why not use this fact for Rrahman Parllaku, who has been around for so long? Why were these not used? Why were these interesting facts not used against them?
KADRI HAZBIU: I know one thing, Comrade Aran, that since then we have sought to gather and bring out what was there for these people. And whether it came out or not, I do not know.
(Friends express dissatisfaction).
COMRADE ARANIT ÇELA: When you asked for documents, did you know this?
KADRI HAZBIU: It is coming out now that the issue has been raised that the manipulation of these has been done since the construction of the project or as it were the investigation plan. The investigation plan of the coup plotters, as far as I know, has been done several times, it has been done in the beginning, then we have changed it, it has changed for everyone, everyone has been asked for espionage, even for old anti-party connections, and I do not know what. Now, I do not know how much this material has come to light, but even if she came out and asked Beqir Balluku, he would say “no, it is not true, Hulusi Spahiu is lying”.
ALL FRIENDS: It’s another thing.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: Why do you take on what Beqir Balluku meant?
COMRADE HAJREDIN ÇELIKU: Why did not you tell the Party? He was the leader.
KADRI HAZBIU: I am continuing to answer the questions: Why did you not help Comrade Hekuran? I helped Comrade Hekuran as much as I could.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: How did you help, we told you.
KADRI HAZBIU: Avash, avash.
COMRADE PALI MISKA: What avash?
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: How did you help him, little by little, we told him.
KADRI HAZBIU: We said it. I told what I thought to Comrade Hekuran and I wrote it down. Are they complete? They are not complete. Under this prism, as the Party demands and as I judge it now, they were not complete, but reminding me of problems, I gave them both in writing and orally, as much as I could.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: You not only did not help him, but you perverted him.
KADRI HAZBIU: Where did I confuse you, huh?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: This one, Kadriu, learned the combinations of Mehmet Shehu with Feçor Shehu.
KADRI HAZBIU: Where did I learn them? You do well!
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: Yes, you learned these engagements and these others, because all the people taught them.
KADRI HAZBIU: E… (Ironically).
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: Did you learn these?
KADRI HAZBIU: I taught them.
FRIEND ISAI: At first we told you.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: What did you discuss with Feçor Shehu to appoint investigators and security operatives who were Feçor Shehu’s puppies?!
KADRI HAZBIU: How did I know that they were Feçor Shehu’s puppies?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: More started only from this side, that Feçor Shehu and Mehmet Shehu, in this engagement were in combinations.
KADRI HAZBIU: Yes, Feçor Shehu was Minister of Internal Affairs.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: One minute, one minute, I learned the same thing, big and small!
KADRI HAZBIU: What about the former Minister of Internal Affairs, do you understand?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: More and let the Minister of Internal Affairs be, if you were a member of the Politburo, you would have been assigned by Comrade Enver to help the State Security.
KADRI HAZBIU: What can I help you with, what can I help you with?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: You should have helped and said even now that these people, whom Feçor Shehu had as his puppies, should not be introduced in any way.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: They had to be vacuumed.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: They should have been vacuumed immediately, but it was not done, on the contrary, they are all here. I, to tell you the truth, when by order of the Party I was judging the issue of frauds and falsifications that had been done to the investigator by Elham Gjika, and in the basic organization of the Party I asked him to account for this because he was related to Feçor Shehu, this was in charge of investigating the case against Fiqrete Shehu, even Bato Karafili, through his friend Mihal, comes here and makes an alarm, that why and how, Elham Gjika is shocked. “Why is he shocked, more,” I told Bato Karafil, he has violated the law and done this and that.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: He was in the plot.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: He told me that they were shocked.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: They are shocked! These were the main puppies of Feçor Shehu.
KADRI HAZBIU: How did I know them?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: Well, you did not know them then in her case, but you did not learn that this kind of engagement was a combination that you were in the Politburo; you were in contact with the entire leadership of the Party and with Comrade Enver. Why did you do these things?
Second, what help did you give to Comrade Hekuran, tell me for example when it came to hitting this or that? These hesitations are perversions. You had a lot of experience as Minister of Internal Affairs and the one who has the right, says: fall that this is so.
KADRI HAZBIU: What are you talking about, huh?
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: One minute, one minute, even with Feçor Shehu and the barber of the “Dajti” hotel, you acted like that with all of them. It turns out that we are witnesses.
COMRADE ADIL ÇARÇANI: He understands, he understands.
COMRADE XHELIL GJONI: Hesitations in their favor.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: I have heard Comrade Hekuran.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Yes, yes, that’s right.
COMRADE HEKURAN ISAI: He was hesitant.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: I discussed with him that this should be a basic classic, the most interesting connection, we discussed abroad, Comrade Hekuran, and he must be arrested because it is a mailbox, while Kadri Hazbiu said: it is not possible !?
HEKURAN ISAI COMRADE: Kadri Hazbiu said: how is it possible for the barber of the “Dajti” hotel to be an agent?!
KADRI HAZBIU: I did not have him as an agent, Comrade Hekuran.
COMRADE REXHEP KOLLI: One minute, one minute. And what did he raise when they told him about these?! Look at Shkodra the problem of these or those figures. What should we see in Shkodra?! They were discredited figures and this one, Kadriu, during the time I was in Shkodra, stayed with them and drank. To look at you, Kadri, yourself and to reflect. That is why I say to the plenum of the Central Committee, that this is nowhere; it is not in it at all! Excuse me.
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: Good.
COMRADE NAUNKA BOZO: Following what Comrade Rexhep said, I wanted to say something from our district: In July of this year, the bureau of the Party Committee of the district of Fier, made an analysis of some cadres of the Branch of Internal Affairs of our district. When Kadri Hazbiu came as a delegate for the Poçemi holiday, I informed him about the analysis made by the bureau, but he not only did not agree with the analysis, he was also saying many hasty words: “they run the Security organs and what is it that you have made you ”?! Despite what he called me “lazy” and “immature”, but after the meeting of the bureau, he called once again the chairman of the Internal Affairs Branch, whom we fired for flaws and mistakes and for the main connection, a from the main connections I am talking about the district of Fier, with Feçor Shehu. Why did he call this himself? What did he talk to her about?
COMRADE ENVER HOXHA: This is concrete. Memorie.al
