29 April 2021 Statement of the Spokesperson of the President of the Republic, Mr. Tedi Blushi
On behalf of the President of the Republic H.E. Ilir Meta I strongly condemn the criminal offense of the misuse of telephone messages, allegedly on behalf of the Head of State, by some identified persons, who according to the information provided, have sent messages these days with offensive and threatening content addressed to some citizens.
These desperate acts are the authorship of those who bought and stole the mandates of the MPs on April 25 and now they are not enjoying them.
We apologize to all citizens who have received such messages, please let us know immediately.
This criminal scandal of the misuse of the number of the President of the Republic will require immediate and international investigation, because if our institutions were functional no one would dare to commit such crazy and legally punishable acts that they could put in serious danger the national security of the Republic of Albania, a NATO member country.
We thank the former Mayor of Berat, Mr. Petrit Sinaj, the former Mayor of Skrapar, Mr. Nesim Spahiu, MP Lefter Maliqi, former MP Silva Caka and many others, who informed us immediately.
Once again we apologize to all citizens for the concerns that such text messages have caused, which have only one author: the Renaissance Organization.
It is precisely this organization that mafia style and illegally hijacked the personal data of all citizens for the purposes of electoral political surveillance and blackmail.
When they dare to commit such a crime by daring to fabricate the official telephone number of the President of the Republic, what can these thugs do to the ordinary citizens?
