Delijorgji: Patrick Henry is responsible 20/02/2012
“The last defendant for the Gerdeci tragedy, the co-administrator of the
“Albademil” society, Mihal Delijorgji, presented his defense at court
with a voluminous material that contained dozens of documents, starting
from the creation of “Albademil” and to its contracts with the US
The defendant lawyer, Gezim Veleshnja, declared that Patrick Henry had asked the dismantling of ammunition, not only through documents but also with his presence at the Defense Ministry.
Patric Henry has held official relations with the Administration of the Defense Ministry and its structures during this activity, and the prosecution’s intimation that Delijorgji has influenced the decision-making is contradictory to the documents administered in the trial.
“Patric Henry created an Albanian society, ‘Albademil’, which was to be managed by two administers with separate duties and responsibilities”, the defending lawyer declared.
Patric Henry would cover the demilitarization area and transport, while Delijorgji only the financing area. According to the written contract, the Ministry of Defense undertook to choose the dismantling site, the ammunition transportation and the process security, while SAC, through Albademil, would prepare the site and organize the work and recruiting.
The defending lawyer argued that the Prosecution charges are unfounded and tendentious, and for this, he demanded the suspension of the case.
According to the lawyer, the Prosecution should take in consideration a document signed by the General Chief of State Police, Agron Kulicaj, who says that 30 minutes before the explosion, SAC representatives have installed a camera and filmed the site.
Insisting that the Gerdec explosion did not happen due to the negligence of the workers, but due to the political background plans against Albania, the lawyer insisted that the US expertise also has a relative way of speaking about the causes of the fire.
Lawyer Gezim Veleshnja declared that the Albanian laws have not been implemented. He referred to a fresh case that apparently will return in a precedent: the decision of the Supreme Court Penal College, which declared as invalid the expertise held for the Meta-Prifti video by the US expert, Glen Bart. The defense lawyer says that even the test made by the British Ardian Philips was not according to the procedures.
Even in the Gerdec case, the experts did not take their task according to the Albanian law, and not even according to the laws of their countries.
