GJKKO leaves in prison the former director of RTSH, Thoma Gëllçi
The Special Court has imprisoned the former director of RTSH, Thoma Gëllçi, and three members of the bidding commission, Julian Tapinë, Alban Malaveci and Ervin Muraj, on corruption charges.
According to SPAK documents, Gëllçi misused his post for the purchase of equipment for the RTSH Agro channel, worth ALL 860 million without VAT, and mismanaged funds for the implementation of a contract which in the end was not implemented.
Gëllçi is also suspected of having conducted a tendering procedure 1 year before receiving approval from the AMA and two years before the canal started operating.
According to SPAK, the documents show that after signing the contract for the purchase of equipment that was then transferred to the audiovisual warehouses Kukës, Gjirokastër, Shkodër, it had to be fulfilled by TBS 96 by February 6, 2019. However, on February 15, 2019 the former director of ART Thoma Gëllçi , signed the additional contract extending the deadline until February 22, 2019.
All these actions of Gëllc and the three members of KVO are considered as abuse of tenders, abuse of office and violation of equality in tenders.
