“The decision of the European Union to return Albania to the list of countries under monitoring for fiscal issues is another very heavy blow for Edi Rama and his corrupt Government, of countless financial affairs and scandals. While Albania has been on the list of countries under monitoring for money laundering for several years, we are now included in the list of countries with a suspicious fiscal regime. Edi Rama has plunged the country into total illegality by transforming Albania into the fiscal paradise of local and international organized crime through the adoption of a series of laws that have the sole purpose of introducing dirty money into every sector of the economy.
Even Edi Rama’s scandalous attempt to clean the money of corruption and organized crime through the “Fiscal Amnesty” is one of the main reasons for this EU decision, which severely discourages the approach of serious foreign investments in Albania. In ten years, the outgoing Prime Minister has completely failed to consolidate a modern tax administration and has deliberately undermined efforts against crime and corruption by weakening the effectiveness of state mechanisms that fight dirty money. Only the removal of Edi Rama restores the economy to the legal tracks and brings serious foreign and domestic investments thus ensuring a sustainable and long-term development of the economy, which produces well-being for citizens and stops dramatic depopulation!”, Meta wrote on Facebook.
