ITALY – The Guarantor of Ndragheta’s Prince, Antonio Gallos, to corrupt the Albanian Government is suspected to be the President of ‘Sol’ Group in Albania, Besnik Halili! The company, which is known in our country as “GTS-Albanian Technical Gas shpk”, is now under the magnifying glass of the authorities, as it is suspected of being involved in money laundering. According to ‘Open Data’, Ndragheta’s intercepted company has won 80 public tenders in Albania. They are all in the health sector! As the document shows, the number of won tenders is 80.
The tenders are all in the health sector. Dosja.al publishes the scheme of the total number of tenders by tendering authority.
It was Open Data, an open platform serving to catalogue the data from the Government institutions, which had already raised the Red Flag in this case. A document made public showed clearly that ‘GTS.SHPK’ had won a tender from the University Hospital ‘Shefqet Ndroqi’. All the tenders announced by the Ministry of Health and their subordinate structures, including Tirana University Hospital Centre for hospital oxygen, are won by “GTS”.
It took the Italian authorities to carry out a huge operation to find out that there is a company in Albania laundering money, and above all, serving as a bridge between the Albanian Government and elements of mafia groups!
Besnik Halili, together with notorious individuals in the Italian state, were identified by interceptions initiated upon finalization of the Italian mega-operation. Thanks to this Police action, 50 persons were arrested, including businessmen and members of Ndrangheta, who were connected to Government officials and businessmen in Albania. They are all accused of being part of a corrupt affair of Euro 250 million.
