Babale's scandal, Salianji will be called to court on Monday!
On Monday at the Court of Appeal of Tirana, DP deputy Ervin Salianji will testify about the Babale scandal. One of the first-ever political films in Albania.
Ervin Salianji was sentenced by the Court of Tirana to 1 year in prison, but he and the Presidency of the Democratic Party appealed this sentence, considering it political.
We recall what the Babale scandal is:
Albert Veliu, otherwise known as Witness X, together with his brother-in-law, Fredi Alizoti, staged an audio recording called "Babale" 4 years ago, because of his main character, where it was claimed that the brother of the minister Xhafaj was doing drug deals. The audio taping sparked a fierce political debate between the opposition and the majority at the time until it was later proven that it was all staged. It is suspected that Ervin Salianji, who is accused of being behind the staging of the audio taping, was implicated in this scandal.
