"Applied for the fifth villa in the municipality", Lulzim Basha's brother-in-law sues Erion Veliaj for defamation

"Applied for the fifth villa in the municipality", Lulzim Basha's

Erion Isufi, brother-in-law of the leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha has sued the mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, for defamation.

Through a lawsuit filed in the Special Court of First Instance for Corruption and Organized Crime, Isufi sought to find Veliaj guilty after the latter stated that “Basha's brother-in-law owned 4 villas and had benefited from them during the pandemic period ”.

The motive that Isufi claims has pushed Veliaj, as the leader of the SP campaign in Tirana, to make such accusations in order to damage the public perception of the victim of accusations as a family member of the Chairman of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha.

" Luli's brother-in-law had applied to the Municipality of Tirana for the fifth villa - an insolence! Once you give a box of food aid or a container for earthquake families. I told them to forget the permit for the fifth villa! Good to add villas in pandemic year, but apply for another. Permission for the fifth villa will be obtained only when they grant one of the other four villas. They talk about poverty and apply for villas, arrogance ", was Veliaj's statement, also mentioned in Isufi's lawsuit.
