The former Chief of the Secret Service, Fatos Klosi, declared that the
replacement of the Secret Service Chief by the President is very
In an interview for the VOA, Klosi commented the man that will replace him, whch according to him is based on Visho Ajaz Lika’s past.
“I consider as hasty the Prime Minister’s decision for removing the head of the Secret Service, and now he removed him. This is something to be very concerned about”, Klosi declared.
“The experience of today’s Director with the Secret Service led by Gazidede is one of the parameters that served to chose him for the post, that’s why I say that it is concerning. He and Berisha can do very frightening things”, he continued.
The former Chief of Secret Services declared that the fact that Lika has worked with the Secret Service that was symbolized with the elections of 1996 complicates the situation even further.
“I don’t judge, but I see his experience. The Secret Service of tat time was branded with the failed elections of 1996. It is an experience that we must never forget”, Klosi underlined.
Then he considered as very concerning the fact that Prime Minister Berisha is disregarding the appeals of the international factor for independence of the Secret Services. According to him, today more than ever Albania needs to cooperate with the international partners.
“Today we are NATO members and the consolidation with our partners is very necessary. I think that this hasty decision shows that they can never be able to interfere”, Klosi emphasized.
“This is not good, because today we are in other positions and we must be more serious” he added.
