Memorie.al / “My brother, Petriti, wanted the daughter of the Founder of the Party, but at a time when the Founder of the Party was no longer in good health, the current leader of the Party urged the wife of the Founder of the Party, so that this engagement does not take place was done and this told my father that; this engagement could not be done because the people will speak. My father called Petrit and said: Forget this conversation! The leader of the Party did this, because if this engagement took place, the friendship would be strengthened and after his death, the chair of the Founder of the Party would be taken by my father. The wife of the Founder of the Party did not ask the founder of the Party about the children’s problems. When my father was dismissed and the free investigation continued with him, we were all gathered at our house, we asked him how the work was. The father gathered us and told us: ‘I have worked honestly, but this is how the Party sees fit. The truth will come out one day, but then I will have grass in my eyes! He especially told me that; Goni, I’m afraid you’re in a hurry. From the injustices they did to my father, my blood rushed to my head and I wanted to take the machine gun in my trunk and not allow them to take my father, but my father told me: Not like that Agron, because I don’t put a rifle against the Founder of the Party”.
This is stated, among other things, in a highly secret State Security document dated March 3, 1987, where the entire conversation of Kadri Hazbi’s second son, Agron, with one of his workmates in Kurbnesh is revealed of the district of Mirdita, where they were both interned and all that conversation between them was then sent to Ramiz Ali.
As we will see from the document in question, which is part of a voluminous file that was extracted from the Archive of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, (now part of the Authority for the Information of Files of the former State Security), in charge of to the former Minister of the Interior, Kadri Hazbiu and his family, in addition to Agron Hazbiu’s conversations with his friend (A.M.), who has declared everything in detail to the Department of Internal Affairs of the district of Mirdita, part of the voluminous file, are also many reports and secret information with denunciations and interceptions against the Hazbiu family, which begin in October 1982, and end at the beginning of 1991.
The struggle of Enver’s closest collaborators in the high leadership of the party and the state at that time, among others, is also known from this archival document that we are publishing today in the first part of this file (which will last in ten issues ), where Agron Hazbiu, or as he is otherwise known as Agron Dautaj, (former football player of the “Dinamo” team, has confirmed to his close friends, A.M., regarding the broken engagement between his brother, Petr Hazbiu (graduated as an architect) and Enver’s daughter (also an architect), since the beginning of the 70s, which came after the intervention of Ramiz Ali and Nexhmije Hoxha.
And only 15 months later, Agron Hazbiu was found dead in the copper mine in Kurbnesh, where according to the official version, he had committed suicide by tying dynamite to his body. But was it really a suicide, or did the State Security carry out Ramiz Ali’s order (written in his own hand: “…To act”), being afraid of the son of Kadri Hazbiu, who except once in 1982, he wanted to grab the machine gun, in defense of his father, but even in exile, in a moment of anger, he even expressed himself about throwing dynamite at someone…!
Regarding this and others, we will be informed by a number of archival documents extracted from the voluminous file in charge of former Interior Minister Kadri Hazbiu and his family, which will be published by Memorie.al

SECRET DOCUMENT WITH THE NOTE – OPERATIVE OF THE OPERATIVE WORKER, MIHAL MONKA, ON THE COLLECTION OF DATA AND INFORMATION FOR THE FAMILY OF KADRI HAZBI
EXAMPLE NO. 3
I, the Operative Worker of the Kurbnesh area, Mihal Monka, on 24.10.1983, around 7.00 in the morning, I was in a car at the old agency, and I was waiting for the driver of this car, Ndre Sulejmani, to go to Kurbnesh. Inside the car was Gjovalin Gjoci, from the village of Ndreffushas, who works as a driver in the goods park.
Near the agency, there is a small football field, where an 8-year-old school team, Rrëshen, was training. I noticed that, in this team, there was also Arian Medi Collaku, (the son of the daughter of the enemy of the Party, Kadri Hazbiu, Helena), who is in the 8th grade.
Ndue Ruçi only called them by the last name “Çollaku”. When he heard this last name, Gjovalin Gjoci, he said that: “A week ago, on 16.10.1983, I was waiting for a car at the bridge in the city of Kurbnesh, after a day, I saw this boy with his father, who works as a teacher in Prosek and a boy about 9 years old, who were waiting for a car to Rrëshen, I found a car in front of them, they don’t know what they did”.
Medi Çollaku, is a teacher in Prosek, residing in the town of Rrëshen, it is possible that he brought Arian and Andi to Kurbnesh, the first is the son of Mediu (Helena Hazbiut), and the second is the son of Agron Aranitas, (of Mimoza Hazbiu), where the latter lives in Fushë-Arrëz, Pukë district, who met their mothers, who are under deportation measures, in the city of Kurbnesh.

Received: P.Operativ, Mihal Monka
Given: B.p. “The Hammer”
Report dated 29.11.1983
He announces that he worked in a brigade with Agron Hazbi, since when Agron came to work in the mine, in some cases he worked with Agron alone, in the mine at the level, during the work he talked with Agron and Agron had enjoy talking with him, than with other people, such as with Luigj Gjini, where he often told him that you are used to chocolates.
In the conversations he had with Agron, he asked him about his father, how he behaved at home and Agron told him that he behaved very wildly in the family, even there were times when he did not come home for 6 months and we we watched him on TV when we met him, he used to beat us children and during the summer, he would take us to the village and to continue school, he didn’t interfere, but others did.
In one case, when Luigj Gjini snorted, work, because you are used to chocolates, Agroni replied to Luigj, ironically, go ahead and throw it in the furnace because, if you threw it here, the material is out and at the moment, Agroni told him, in the furnace 605.10/E, that we, the people of Vlonia, have it as a tradition, that we used to burn the enemy’s house, kill the boys, cut down the trees. In another case, Agron told him that my friends kept me close at the time of my father’s arrest, many Dinamo football players came to the hospital, because I was hospitalized with dysentery, and my fiancee was very sick, even now in September 1983, he sent me a letter, where he wrote that I quit my job, and stay locked up at home, even, Agroni said, if I love you, I’ll take her, she comes here, because she worries me a lot.
This data of this B.p., was taken in the withdrawal process, who was keen to cooperate with the State Security bodies.
Agron Hazbi’s fiancee is called A.S.S. who worked in the Vth Branch of the MPBr.
The data has operational value, that it is about Agron Hazbiu, in active processing 2/A, for agitation and propaganda, for his reaction to his father’s work, it speaks with innuendos, that if we were enemies of the Party, we would they had killed us, he wants to soften the class war, he speaks with consideration for his fiancee, who, according to him, sent him a letter.
Task given to B.p.
He gave you the task to check and fix his contacts with other people in advance, their character, during work, as the case may be, to be approachable without being noticeable and to help and expose them, so that they are not get upset that this is how it works, that you look at me, that I don’t feel, that this is what I suffered too.
The data should be printed in three copies, 1 for the Operative Group, 1 for A.S., Directorate of Internal Affairs Tirana and 1 for the object’s file.
But through the postman of PT Kurbnesh, you can’t learn that it is true to receive the letter from Agron Hazbiu, from his fiancee?! Don’t wait, you should have made it clear that there is no secret action, they are known as such, why half-baked things?!
