Ahmeti defends Ali, says he is being accused of defending the public interest

The head of Pristina, Shpend Ahmeti has reacted after the news that the new Minister of Environment, Spatial Planning and Infrastructure Liburn Aliu turns out to be accused of corruption.

Through a post on “Facebook”, Ahmeti said that Aliu and some other officials are being accused because according to him they have protected the public interest and that of the Municipality of Prishtina, and not for corruption.

“Although we have not officially received the indictment, I want to say that the title is not correct. The indictment is for abuse of office because they did not issue a permit. “Regardless of the fact that Liburni and I may not agree politically, I can say with full responsibility that Liburnj, Ardian and our officials are being accused today because I have defended the public interest and that of the Municipality”, he wrote.

Ahmeti says that the accusation against them is not that they gave permission to benefit personally but as he says they refused permission to protect the public interest.

“So the accusation is not that they gave permission to benefit personally but refused permission to protect the public interest. Ardiani, Liburni, Mimoza Bahtija, Nazifja and Zejna have refused to issue permits in a place where the school has a plan. The party has found space by saying that in the Development Plan it does not say school but housing. “Nowhere in the UDP is the school specified, therefore we have more detailed regulatory plans to specify the spaces”, said Ahmeti./Zëri

Today comes the news that Liburn Aliu, Ardian Olluri, and some other municipal officials have been indicted for corruption.

Although we have not officially received the indictment I want to say that the title is not correct. The indictment is for abuse of office because they did not issue a permit.

Regardless of the fact that Liburni and I may disagree politically, I can say with full responsibility that Liburnj, Ardian and our officials are being accused today because I have defended the public interest and that of the Municipality.

So the accusation is not that they gave permission to benefit personally but refused permission to protect the public interest. Ardiani, Liburni, Mimoza Bahtija, Nazifja and Zejna have refused to issue permits in a place where the school has a plan. The party has found space by saying that in the Development Plan it does not say school but housing. Nowhere in the UDP is the school specified so we have more detailed regulatory plans to specify the spaces.

Despite pressure, blackmail and threats, these officials have resisted. And today they are accused of protecting the public interest.

I do not know every subject in urbanism and in the municipality because it is impossible. Where I understand that there are abuses, I reported them to the police. But in this case I stand behind the directors and officials, behind Liburni, Ardian, Mimoza, Bahtija, Nazife and Zejna that as long as they have defended the public interest they can not be wrong. This will be easily explained to both the public and the court.

If the intention is to harm Liburn the others are collateral damage this is not the right way. Not with such indictments.
