The former vice-mayor of the Librazhd Municipality, and also the former administrator of the Sopoti team, Andri Çota , has fallen into the hands of the police. Several months of investigations have established that Çota abused his duties as administrator of the Sopot team, which he led for 8 years. The former senior official is accused of treating the "Sopoti" team and the funds provided by the Municipality as private property.
It is learned that it was a denunciation made to the police by the general secretary in the municipality, citizen Bajram Pishkashi , that set the Librazhdi and Elbasan police in motion.
The BP citizen stated to the police that Mr. Çota administers a Facebook page called Librazhdi Meme , which he says he uses for malicious purposes, using insults and personal insults, not even sparing his family.
The whistleblower claims that Çota tried to denigrate his figure through this social network. That was enough for the blue squads to start a proper investigation and discover some of the violations of the former high official.
