Mother Jones quickly transmitted the news of Lulzim Basha’s being called by the Prosecution, pointing out in the headline of the article that this move follows the reports of the well-known investigative journal.
“Prosecutors in Albania – is said in the article – on Thursday announced plans to file criminal charges against Lulzim Basha, the head of the country’s main conservative party, regarding more than $600,000 in payments that his party reportedly made in 2017 to a Republican lobbyist in Washington, DC.”
“The move comes a year and a half after Mother Jones reported that a Scotland-based shell company connected to mysterious Russian nationals had bankrolled this lobbying effort.” stresses the journal.
Prosecutors added that the DPA had declared making only $25,000 in lobbying payments, without revealing another $650,000 in expenditures. In filings with the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Act office, Muzin reported receiving that larger sum as his total compensation for his work for the DPA.
