The former Albanian Prime Minister, Sali Berisha, said that the initiative of Prime Minister Edi Rama to close the betting shops is just a maneuver to give a monopoly to the company owned by his brother, Olsi Rama.
“Rama has said that they will close betting shops, and then maybe they will close online bets. His idea was to demolish these shops and leave the monopoly to his brother. We know that BastArena belongs to Olsi Rama, Gaz Rama and to another person. It is a catastrophe that the gambling monopoly was given to Olsi Rama. Rama wants to close 4000 shops and open 400,000 other ones online. Can you believe a man who promised to close them and he quadrupled them?”, Berisha declared.
