Emiriana Sako, the current mayor of the Durrës Municipality continues without problems with her tenders in significant numbers. In a time of crisis where the prices of all food products have increased to alarming numbers, the mayor in question finds time and spends 66 million ALL to get consultancy from someone who is described in the media as "Edi Rama's friend".
It is about Alban Efthimi of the company ATELIER 4. In many cases, it is learned that Rea Xhillari, the daughter of Rama's wife, was also an associate of this company. More specifically, it is about the tender with reference number REF-30849-05-26-2022 and with the object "Design study for the reconstruction of the Ramazan Njala sports palace".
Its limit fund is 5,711,000 new ALL without VAT or about 68 million old ALL with VAT. Looking at the tender documentation, it can be seen that only two companies have qualified for the competition, of which ATELIER 4 of Alban Efthimi in cooperation with INFRATECH of Filjana Veizaj has been declared the winner, for a value of 5,500,000 new ALL without VAT or about 66 million old ALL with VAT.
If we compare the winning value with that of the limit fund, it turns out that the offer given by ATELIER 4 is as much as 96.3% of the limit fund of the tender, raising doubts that we are dealing with a predetermined winner.
