On Saturday, the police executed the security measure "arrest in prison", assigned by the Special Court of First Instance against the mayor of Kukës, Safet Gjici. The arrest was made based on the request of the Special Prosecutor's Office against Corruption and Organized Crime, SPAK after the investigation of the circumstances found in a video recording that circulated on the Internet, in which Gjici appeared having sexual relations with a woman, in the office of the mayor of Kukës municipality.

However, it seems that the charge filed by SPAK is related to other episodes found by the preliminary verifications. According to the coordinator for public relations at SPAK, Xjulieta Krasta, the detention was carried out for the criminal offense of "passive corruption of high state officials or local elected officials", provided for by article 260 of the Criminal Code, which determines the prison sentence from four to twelve years.

The Mayor of Kukës, re-elected on May 14, Safet Gjici, resigned on June 16 after a video of him having sex with a woman circulated on the Internet.

The video, which was filmed in the office of the mayor of Kukes and was widely distributed on social networks, is dated June 16, 2023. After its publication, SPAK announced the initiation of a criminal proceeding.

In the following days, other parts of the video recording were published on the "Jungle" show, where after the sexual act, between Gjic and the protagonist woman, a project for the management of street dogs was discussed. Gjici appears in his office calling his subordinates and then directly discusses with one of them asking them to take care of the realization of the project proposed by the woman with whom he had sexual relations, in order to be able to they passed the project to the council for approval.

Meanwhile, after Gjici had announced his resignation, the Ministry of Finance Delina Ibrahimi announced that the Council of Ministers had decided to immediately dismiss him from office.

Gjici won the local elections in May and received the second mandate in Kukës. He received his first mandate in the uncontested elections of 2019.

Gjici is the second Socialist mayor to resign after a similar event. After being arrested in May 2016, the former mayor of Dibra, Shukri Xhelili, was sentenced to 1 year and 8 months in prison, including the time of detention, for the charge of "sexual or homosexual relationship while abusing his office". Xhalil was arrested after the broadcast of a hidden camera showing him offering a job to a girl in exchange for sexual favors./BIRN
