Prime Minister Edi Rama gave an interview to the Italian journalists of "La Repubblica", attacking their colleagues of "RAI 3", for a documentary where they accused his secretary Úngjëll Agaçi as a person connected to the mafia and behind the emigrant agreement.

Rama defended Agac, and claimed that the latter sent the answers to the Italian journalist of the "Report" show, but he did not include them in the show broadcast a few days ago on Italian screens.

Excerpt from the interview:

Italian journalist: I always speak with hesitation, but apparently Agaçi has influenced the details of the agreement. Given this task, perhaps it would be better for him to retire. I remember that in a public event you said that it does not cost Albania anything as far as the foundation of the agreement is concerned. I was very struck by this aspect, maybe it was a moment of sincerity, for us it is clear that it is a propaganda movement.

Edi Rama: I thank you because you help me understand things about the Italian part. There are some things that do not go in your intervention. I see no connection in the intervention of an Albanian lawyer's career. It was not easy, in 2013 he left Italy to become secretary of the Council of Ministers. He is the number 1 institutional figure of the administration. I see no connection between his career and this deal. He guided our team in the drafting of this difficult agreement. I don't think I'm wrong if I say that he and the lawyer who were treated as criminals. He is treated and smeared as if he were a criminal. The reason is very simple, to attack your prime minister, it is your right. But where does Albania and the lawyer come in? Half-truths, since you do the work of journalists, are the biggest lies.
