The High State Control reveals Belinda Balluku's plane tickets and per diems abroad, there is no document for the deputy prime minister that proves her official meetings for which international trips were made

The High State Control reveals Belinda Balluku's plane tickets and per

In September 2022, the Supreme State Audit Office would publish a report on the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy for the period from August 1, 2018 to December 31, 2021. An important detail that stands out from the report is the travels of Balluk and staff, where KLSH reveals that the Ministry of Infrastructure has not submitted the documents that prove the official meetings, for which international trips were made. According to KLSH MIE: "In all orders-expenses for the purchase of international air transport tickets selected to be audited by the audit group, as well as in some orders-payments of services-diet abroad of employees, liquidated through box office, the absence of the host country's invitation was found." As a result, the lack of documentation for the invitation is against the law, therefore we have suspicions about the misuse of public money for trips abroad. In addition to the lack of documentation, the audit of KLSH revealed legal violations that charge the Ministry of Infrastructure, mainly Minister Belinda Balluku and her predecessor, Damian Gjiknuri, with responsibility. We remind you that on January 17, 2019, Balluku was appointed to this position, including in the audit the period that the institution was directed by the latter.

But this is not the only scandal that KLSH has revealed. Albcontrol's tender procedures during the time when the institution was run by Minister Belinda Balluku were developed in the absence of competition, and a lack of technical specifications was even found. This conclusion was reached in the audit made by KLSH, carried out in the years 2016-2018. Violations were observed in all 22 cases selected for investigation. The report states that 11 procurement procedures were developed in the complete absence of competition and the signed contracts did not respect equality between economic operators. in 5 procurement procedures, in the drafting of the tender documents, no arguments were given on the establishment of any special criteria for qualification, this action contradicts the "Public Procurement Rules". Meanwhile, in 5 other tenders it was found that they had the technical specifications were completely missing. After these, the High State Control has recommended that in this institution, which was led by Minister Balluku, the efficiency in public spending should be increased, by developing procurement procedures in fulfillment of legal criteria, economic, financial and professional capacities, in the selection of the best economic offer, ensuring that the Contracting Authority accepts offers which are unconditional. The Contracting Authority, the report states, should draw up special requirements for qualification, to ensure the necessary competition as one of the basic principles of procurement in the purchase of goods, services and civil works, to achieve desirable results in the effectiveness of the use of funds, ensuring integrity, public trust and transparency in public procurement procedures.

Why is Rama not releasing Balluk?

Starting from all these scandals, the question is why Rama is not releasing Balluk? The latter was one of the 'surprise' ministers appointed by Prime Minister Rama to head the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy. Although online, on the Prime Minister's website, Balluku has a long CV, at the time when she was appointed it was noticeable that only one of her experiences matched the position she assumed, as the director of ALBCONTROL Sh.A., the National Agency. of Air Navigation of the Republic of Albania. Even, as it seems, this experience is widely talked about as the most important achievement in the description of her professional career, and perhaps the only convincing one. This is because other experiences include the position of Public Relations and later as Director of the Cabinet of the Mayor of Tirana. At the moment when Rama appointed him to that post, Balluku immediately started a specialization at Harvard, where he graduated in 2021 for Economic Development. The newspaper asked how long it took Balluk to earn this certificate at the Harvard Kennedy School. This school shows that in ten weeks you become a specialist. Balluk also loved them so much.
