Elbasan is one of the counties with the highest level of crime in terms of mafia killings and drug trafficking and it seems that this does not happen by chance. The entanglement of senior police officers with criminal elements seems to have handed over the city to gangs by cutting off citizens’ trust, who already feel like they are residents of a Mexican city where the fight between drug cartels takes place in broad daylight, where the police are also a party.
Last summer was one of the “hottest” in this city, where within a few months, due to the fight with drug trafficking groups, a large number of people were killed. The Prosecution and the CIA suspect that at least two of the sensational killings involved senior officers in the Elbasan Police Directorate, for whom it has already been proven by the Prosecution that they provided information on the movements of the targets.
It is about the execution of Emiliano Ramazan and his friend Regis Runaj in July last year, where the prosecution found evidence according to which three police officers received payments of up to 100 million ALL to track down and signal the killers in connection with the movements of young people .
According to the prosecution, high-ranking police officers were pursuing Ramazan and Runaj, who were suspected of having links to a group of drug traffickers and giving details of their movements to the rival group. In August 2020, police arrested two young men from Elbasan, Xhuljano Hoxha and Eugen Halili, as suspected perpetrators of the murder of Emiliano Ramazan, as well as Regis Runaj. After the event was fully clarified and the testimonies of the detainees were obtained, the prosecution discovered that it was the data obtained by the police about the movements of Ramazan and Runaj that helped the perpetrators to execute them.
ABC reported at the time that the case had been taken over by the CIA and that three senior police officers, now in the role of traffickers’ informants, had been transferred to other police directorates. Everything was revealed in March, while recently abcneës.al learns that the “bosses” have been generous to the three subordinates who received 100 million ALL to hand over Ramadan and Runaj to the killers.
Elbasan police must now prove whether it serves citizens or gangs by telling the public what happened to the three police officers who were involved in a mafia scenario to eliminate the two young men. Have they been expelled or do they continue to wear uniforms despite the fact that the prosecution has confirmed their involvement in sensational criminal events?bcnews
