He added that involved in this plan also are former senior officials of the Albanian Army and the Interior Ministry.
Gazidede said that the loan-taking investment funds Populli and Xhaferri, besides the economic activity also carried out a political activity, being leaders of the People's Party, which according to him, was the Communist Party in another name. The leaders of these firms and of Gjallica firm in districts have been officers of the former Sigurimi and the Army.
After making a long analysis of the 5-year-work of SHIK and declaring that he was ready to put at the disposal of any kind of commission set up by the Parliament the documentation of the work of SHIK, Bashkim Gazidede called on every Albanian to see his own responsibilities.
"It is high time to charge nobody on the basis of rumors and that every Albanian must see his own responsibilities," said Gazidede.
Regarding the activity of Safet Zhulali, former Defence Minister, Gazidede said that "although I have no information to put blame on him, he, as a minister, should hold a special responsibility."
When asked for direct facts as proofs, Gazidede said:"We have full documentation of the chauvinist Greek circles and other segments, both in and out of Albania, but SHIK does not sensitize the public opinion but the state."
Gazidede laid the stress on the indispensable need of SHIK and its quickest possible functioning, and explained some details of his work.
Numerous deputies considered pyramid investment schemes not only fraudulent, but also "scenarios for destabilization."
The DP chairman, Tritan Shehu stressed that "we should never mix the anti-albanian stand of some Greek circles with the stand of the Greek people and Government, which have supported the consolidation of democracy in Albania."
The deputies denounced the stands of some chauvinistic circles but highlighted the admirable stand of the national minorities living in Albania, especially that of the largest one, the Greek minority, and expressed their thanks for the Greek Government and people for the support provided to Albania during these years.
"Albanians have always been for peace. By backing up the Platform of National Reconciliation, and having the support of the international community, we think that public order and stability will soon be restored in Albania," said the chairman of the DP parliamentary group, Ali Spahia.
At the end of the sitting, after explaining that SHIK has implemented only the laws of the Parliament, Gazidede stressed his readiness to face any possible verification. Gazidede also declared his request for resignation, addressed to President Berisha. kled/lm/xh/

 APPEAL OF ALBANIAN PATRIOTIC ORGANIZATIONS ADDRESSED TO INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITYTIRANA, MARCH 26 (ATA) - By P Shuteriqi: Twenty five patriotic and cultural associations have addressed an appeal to the Council of Ministers of the European Union and to all embassies accredited to Tirana. They call on international organizations and institutions to powerfully influence in the defence of the territorial integrity and the constitutional institutions of the Albanian democratic system.
According to Dr Myslim Islami, chairman of the all-Albanian Association "The Prizren League" centered in Tirana, the request of these associations is an analysis of the recent situation in Albania and an expression of support towards the National Reconciliation Government and its program.
The Appeal also demands from the European Union and the diplomatic corps accredited to Tirana to exert a powerful influence to halt, first of all, any anti-national, splitting and destructive activity, to ensure the observation of the Fundamental Constitutional Provisions, declaring that the elected local governments are the only legitimate structures, that any other violent structure is unconstitutional, that the constitutional instititutions are categorically invulnerable, that the naming, dismission or replacement of the representatives of these institutions may be realised only through ways envisaged by law, and that a qualified assistance be given for the quickest and most complete possible disarmament of the population.
The appeal is also addressed to the foreign medias, radio and television stations to keep off distortions, because the image of Albania is not that they report of.
In such an extremely difficult situation Albania is experiencing, the call is also addressed to the European and other governments not to increase pressures on Albanian emigrants and refugees. The Albanian nation, which is among the most damaged by the notorious treaties of Saint Stephan, of Berlin, of the Conference of London, of Paris etc., must be assisted and defended in this rather difficult situation for it, because only in this way the peace in the Balkans, and Europe is defended, says at the end the Appeal of 25 Albanian patriotic and cultural organizations. kled/xh/sh/
