The Democratic Party reacted again today against the decision of the Rama government for the return of the sewers in the heart of the capital.
The Secretary for Legal Affairs, Çlirim Gjata, in a press release said that Rama in the panic of the deep defeat that awaits him in the April elections broke with both feet a promise he made to the Albanians that he would not allow the games of chance to they destroyed thousands of families and lives.
According to Gjata, with the opening of casinos, Rama seeks to use and launder crime money.
Gjata: A very serious event happened this week in Albania. Under the panic of the deep loss that awaits him, Edi Rama violated with both feet a promise he made to Albanians that he would not allow gambling to destroy thousands of families and lives.
In secret he has adopted a DCM that paves the way again for the criminal gambling business in the heart of the capital. After lying that he would eventually close them, he is seeking to use and launder crime money through casinos and gambling.
Why is this a dirty business of Edi Rama? Here are the facts that Edi Rama’s concern is not the Albanian families, but the money he needs in partnership with crime:
During his rule, from 920 points of gambling they quadrupled to 4200. According to the Supreme State Audit, in just two years, 2014-2016, 375 million euros were stolen from the state budget from the evasion of gambling.
This explains why even before Edi Rama promised that he would close the games of chance in 2016 and just on the eve of the 2017 elections he postponed them for another 2 years with the ridiculous lie that he could not convince his deputies.
And here he put his head out again. Even before the ink of the decision to close the games of chance had dried, he reopened them, mocking the drama of those thousands of families whom he deceived with the broken promise that he would end a great social wound.
Now everyone is clear that Edi Rama’s partnership with organized crime and dirty money is much stronger than any promise he has made to citizens.
This cut in the trust of those thousands of families before whom he pledged, this criminal decision should be immediately investigated by the SPAK as a typical case of state capture.
The facts, as you have heard and seen them by voice and image, speak for themselves.
