Row in Albania over authorities' connection with mafia and drug trafficking

FBI agents arrived in Albania to collaborate with colleagues from Germany and Italy to investigate drug trafficking and organized crime, local media reported.

It is reported that the group arrived after the police in Italy detained three tons of marijuana and arrested members of the criminal group that drove it from Albania.

At the same time, the connections of the mafia with high authorities in Tirana were established. In particular, the investigation of the case against the Minister of Police of Albania, Saimir Tahiri, has been initiated.

According to the Balkan media, Albania has a rich experience in the production of marijuana. At the time of Enver Hoxha, it was used there as a means of calming the children.
