Former MP Halit Valteri has filed charges against President Ilir Meta, SMI chairwoman Monika Kryemadhi, and Vangjel Tavo, at the Special Prosecution Against Corruption (SPAK). He accuses them of active and passive corruption in the private sector, asset concealment, nonpayment of taxes and responsibilities, and abuse of office. Valteri claims that he has evidence that raises doubts about the consumption of these crimes in his reasoning.
