Congressman Lee Zeldin, after the debate he had with Secretary of State Blinken, continues his battle for Sali Berisha.
He requests information from the State Department, why Berisha and his family were declared non grata by the US and what procedures have been followed.
“The State Department has recently announced sanctions against the former president and former prime minister of Albania, Sali Berisha, citing his involvement in significant corruption. According to these sanctions, Berisha, his wife and children are not allowed to travel to the US.
Sali Berisha has historically had strong relations with US leaders, causing many people to question this surprising decision.
After the opportunity to discuss these sanctions with Secretary Blinken during a hearing of the Congressional Foreign Affairs Committee, I am asking for access to all the information on which the State Department is based to make this decision against Berisha and his family.
In addition, I am asking for a detailed explanation of the process followed by the State Department to decide on this case “, he writes in a letter, which surprisingly has only the portal of the Berisha family.
We recall that Congressman Zeldin for his re-election, has also raised funds from Albanians.
