After the resignation of Helidon Bendo, Vlora Hyseni, former deputy director of the Kosovo Security Agency, and currently security advisor to the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, is expected to take over the direction of Albanian intelligence.
Prime Minister Rama started today with a one-on-one meeting with President Bajram Begaj, according to reports, with the aim of replacing the director of the SHISH information service.
A few hours later, Prime Minister Rama stated: “Today I presented to the President of the Republic the proposal for the appointment of Mrs. VLORA HYSENI as director of the National Information Service.”
With this proposal, the prime minister says that he has full confidence that the outstanding preparation, the experience created over the years and the respect that Mrs. Hyseni enjoys in the international intelligence community, constitute a guarantee for the further reformation of the Albanian intelligence service.
Ms. Hyseni, who as the security adviser of Prime Minister Edi Rama has kept a low profile, since on July 1, 2021, at the proposal of Prime Minister Albin Kurti, was dismissed from the post of deputy director at the “Kosovo Intelligence Agency”.
