The former President of the Republic, Bamir Topi, invited to the studio of the show "Kjo Javë" on News24, has revealed what can be considered the "unsaid" of the serious event of January 21, 13 years ago.

Topi revealed to the journalist Nisida Tufa that he had communications with the Minister of the Interior at that time, Lulzim Basha, while he said that he also gave the latter a piece of advice.

"Everyone knows their duty well. This is a serious matter. I don't know how you feel about the letters, I told him, but this situation will echo for many years", said Topi regarding the meeting with Basha.

He also emphasized that the Prosecutor's Office of that time was obstructed in relation to the investigations for this case and that the conditions of a coup d'état were created within the state.

Ball: I have condemned the violence, I have called for calm and for justice. Of course I know, I'm clear, Berisha didn't like it when I talk about the incident on the boulevard because the murders happened there. The killings happened when the protest was practically over.

You called the Minister of the Interior Basha at that time and he didn't answer, to tell him what?

Ball:To express my concern as head of state and to be interested. Communications with him afterwards are confidential, but the call has been for restraint and to eliminate episodes of violence that could continue.

How did you understand that Berisha had reservations about your attitude?

Ball:My political experience and that of communication and knowledge of Berisha's political physiognomy, gave me the opportunity to judge how he had perceived my statement. I gave 100% support to the prosecution, there was a tragedy on the boulevard and innocent people were killed and others were injured. The scale of the tragedy could have been much greater.

What did you say to Ina Rama in those moments?

Ball:The prosecution was prevented from obtaining the evidence. Many people who worked in the prosecutor's office at that time are witnesses to this. The prosecutor's office entered into a strong institutional conflict, the prosecutor's arrest orders were not implemented.

Were these reflected in the meeting you had with Basha?

Ball:Mr. Basha was the Minister of the Interior and asked to meet. We had a conversation about that impasse.

How was Basha, scared, worried?

Ball:I don't think there was anyone who was not worried in those moments. I have given all my trust to the prosecution, I made that clear. The political parties proved unfaithful to the people. In the end, politics took advantage of the situation of January 21.

You gave Basha a piece of advice after the meeting, didn't you?

Ball:I gave him a piece of advice that I might as well not have given him. Everyone knows their duty well. This is a serious matter. I don't know how you feel about the letters, I told him, but this situation will reverberate for many years. Even today it is something not judged correctly.

You say that there were orders from Berisha for the doctors of the Military Hospital, where do you base this on?

Ball:I have said that what the doctors proved was clearly a big hoax and this was subsequently confirmed by the doctor's order. What came out proved that the shots were not inside the crowd as Berisha advertised.

You were the head of state and you were informed that cameras were placed near your apartment. However, you said that you were not scared because you have a perception about Berisha that he tries to scare but does not succeed until the end.

Ball:I have never felt scared. When I went through the situation in 87, that situation was not a problem for me. The problem was that the conditions for a coup d'état were created within the state.

You wrote that you had to leave the apartment for two hours and you only asked for the driver for a social meeting in Linz, who were these people?

Ball:They were part of the parliamentary group. It would be a paradox to move with the guards while the latter surrounded by order of the prime minister.

There was an extraordinary effort by the prosecutors to go to justice until the end. Their line was not the same as the line of the court. It was requested by the first instance prosecution, it was rejected by the court. It was appealed to the Appeal by the prosecutors who defended it and the Court of Appeal divided 2 to 1.
