Seven members of the Democratic Party and the Socialist Movement for Integration have sent a letter to the President Ilir Meta, demanding the discussion of the meeting of the National Security Council held on November 11, 2016, be made public.
The members of the opposition demand for the reports by the relevant institutions, regarding the data on the fight against drugs, be published in order to compare them to the current results. The DP MPs argue that there is a high level of sensitivity regarding the situation created in the country, where high ranking officials have been included in drug trafficking investigations and, above all, after the media scandal regarding the 'Habilaj' file.
The members of the DP and SMI express that it is in the public's interest to be informed regarding the data acquired on November 11, 2016 and the engagement of the institutions and the government in the fight against drugs.
At the time of the meeting of the National Security Council held on November 11, 2016, the Prime Minister was on a diplomatic visit to the US and was represented by the Deputy Prime Minister, Niko Peleshi.
After the DP and SMI announced their demands to the president Meta, the former Deputy Prime Minister declared that this case has been politically influenced and warned he would compose a strategy to fight any allegations of misconduct.
