Information of T.O. on the conversations held between the facility Myrteza Bajraktari and B.p. “Ylli”, made in the restaurant “Arbëria” on 9.11.1980.
B – I said do not this chairman.
O – Who is the inspiration, the one-legged devil; he created it along with Nasser and Nehru. Nasser was put inside with all of Castro and the latter has nothing to do and will rely on the Russians as he feels the hegemony of their boot. But now the peoples are awake and no longer pull their noses, that they escaped American hegemony and fall into Russian hegemony. We need Euro-communism, to get rid of the Russian dictatorship, so that the epicenter and the place of pilgrimage are no longer there, but we all have our own.
B – Well, is the devil with one foot for this center?!
O – Yes.
B – And he is the plant itself?!
O – What is the power plant itself for?!
B – It is the cap of the non-engaged.
O – Yes.
B – He formed his communism to impose on you.
O – Yes, he has imposed them everywhere and they follow Tito’s path and a variant of his path is in the USSR today. He was the first to raise his hand against the Russians, how much pressure there was from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and from all of them through diversion. Yes, Yugoslavia faced everything and Tito was cunning, but fear had entered his heart and he was holding great rallies.
B – Are you on your own… ?!
O – A ba ba ba. It was March 13th.
B – 5 March.
O – Po 5 Mars. I have the thing in prison and outside I heard people shouting and applauding in the stadium in Skopje. I was at the investigator and the prison was near the stadium. My opinion is that if Yugoslavia had not had economic aid, it would not have succeeded. By the ’50s if they had not had the help of the world market, they would have been extremely behind. So that one-legged devil, made Yugoslavia. He made everyone follow his path and today Romania, Poland, but up to the USSR, we are following his model. Russia was forced to make concessions and these would be in our favor. The great economic momentum of the 1950s that was not embraced by Eastern Europe could not have been achieved without the doors of decentralization to Western Europe. They also started with the big world firms.
B – Years, did the devil go to Kosovo?!
O – Not a year, not six months.
B – Now fast ë…?!
O – Now hurry up and some riots started.
B – They started in Kosovo…?!
O – With their people in Kosovo, although we Kosovars do not have support, although some careerists can find support because they are directly or indirectly.
B – D.m.th., the current strike is against the Russians…?!
O – Yes the danger is there.
B – Well, what were the results of your devil in Kosovo, what is the goal?!
O – The point is to tell them that you have no choice but to do so. That this is for you, to call today long live and that you have no one but Serbs and Russians.
B – Does not answer. For a while, they do not talk to each other.
B – As she was crying, what did you say to her?!
O – I tried to give her courage, she was touched and I very much because I have a great love, for her and the children. Xhemali also fed them, as she is a woman with a very strong family circle. And he got an Albanian. That Idrizi, did a service for Azem from a donkey, from a fool, because I remembered Idrizi. After 10 days, they talk on the phone and Kimetja, after taking her mother, goes and takes Idrizi. Idrizi, as with strong positions, also had a kobure in his belt. How do you tell Kimete why they arrested Myrtezai, what do they have to do with him?! He then gets back on the phone and tells them; I’m Idriz Lleshi and do not worry about Myrtezain that is good. Of course, the President’s nephew, in what position he may be, is not known, but it is enough that he is and Myrtezai had company with this. When the sister came, he paralyzed us himself, said Mehmet Aliu.
B – Where is Mehmet Aliu,…?!
O – Yes, yes.
B – And how did he say…?!
O – No need to worry about going abroad. And when my sister came here to say thank you very much. This is the truth I tell my sister. (Laughs).
B – Well what service is this…?!
O – Donkey service to make alarms. Xhemali also came and told us that he is …………, that he does not look after his family and stay comfortable.
B – That’s right.
O – That he does not think he can harm us, that when his sister went, he then clarified.
B – Xhemali remembered that you were on duty… ?!
O – No evil.
B – They did not play the finger that much for repatriation. So with ……… (Leaves the word in the middle).
O – Then when I was inside… ?!
B – No mor no, now that you made those demarches for repatriation.
O – Huh, they suffer.
B – Made a m…
O – They played it but did not achieve anything.
B – Why… ?!
O – So they thought.
B – Mehmet Aliu?!
O – Whoever asked Mehmet Ali there has no credit.
B – Yes it is functional.
O – What functionary did you get….?!
B – When I came here (I leave the word half that it interrupts B.p.)
O – This was…?
B – Head of UDB.
O – No more, they set a trap.
B – Why, they accused him as a man…?!
O – There are different currents, after he came out of prison.
B – I do not remember.
O – There was an Ali Ali who came here about 20 times.
B – Legally or illegally?!
O – They legally allowed him because, he is a historian and wherever he went, he tried at all costs to discredit him ……… as ……!
B – Yes.
O – He was released on parole after he spied up and down.
B – Yes.
O – Understand that, Mehmet Aliu, has nothing in hand. He is a man who has taken a post in Yugoslavia, with the help of Xhemal.
B – Well who could help you concretely?!
O – More specifically than Xhemali, no one.
B – But why does not help?!
O – I do not know, only when I can know him, when he comes with a man.
B – Well, with all those who are coming and going huh…?!
O – Xhemali does not eat it.
B – Why…?!
O – If the sister comes.
B – Why is not he coming?!
O – That, depends on our great government, does not depend on the Yugoslavs. That they all have their passports.
B – Well, Ahmeti gets a …….. friend and these with such potency, do not come here… ?!
O – Their potential is not here but in Yugoslavia.
B – They cannot do so much for you, to pull you there… ?!
O – It depends; this is exactly what I do not know…….. (Turns the first side of the bar and puts the second side of it).
O – I was in turmoil.
B – Why…?!
O – And as such they know me ……. who guarantees us that he does not deal with riots again, and you stay well that, Xhemali loved him and could perform this service.
B – To explain.
O – Xhemali, to intervene at the Albanian embassy as he intervened when my sister came.
B – With his intervention… ?!
O – With the intervention of that position, how much I was released from prison, whose man comes there, who… ?!
B – Xhemali, intervened then… ?!
O – Intervened.
B – Xhemali did this… ?!
O – Xhemali, went to the Secretariat of the Albanian Embassy because he knew that he had been at war with him. And having hope that Xhemali can serve us today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, the road to Albania will always be open.
B – Well, how did you come out in this patriotic family, did you come out as an agent… ?!
O – I became an agent after I came here. That if I had been an agent before, I would have stayed there, and if I had been killed at the border, heroism would have sung about me. I was made here when I was put in ………, are you clear now… ?!
B – More, I have clear problems, than to be a friend of this usta who give him a pension.
O – The carpenters here are pushing inside.
B – They must wait until the one who was here comes out and ……… knock inside.
O – So ………
B – It is expected what ability he had, what were you in the end… ?!
O – As it were, they overestimated my authority that I had among Kosovars. In the faculty in the years 1967-’68, there was daily talk about Kosovo. Thoma Murzaku said that now Comrade Myrteza will speak to us, I as an exalted man.
B – Yes, we did.
O – With applause, shouting that Kosovo is ours.
B – Where in the faculty… ?!
O – In the faculty inside. He came to my faculty after four days and told me, you found a square and made it flat. You educated them as much as you could with patriotic and chauvinistic feelings. Yes, we will liberate Kosovo, not as you would like, because the flag of Albania will be raised there. I worked as a pig.
B – You worked here because.
O – Now Miri has come from Kosovo, he has been in prison in Goli Otok… ..Yes I have been, have you heard anything about… ..I have heard, or you know, I have not heard ovdi number one….! Memorie.al
