Case Overview

Wiretapped conversations from an ongoing investigation by the Serious Crimes Prosecution Office were leaked.

The wiretaps revealed that Vangjush Dako, a three-term mayor of Durrës, member of the Socialist Party Steering Committee at the time, and the party official responsible for the election campaign in Durrës, was part of a scheme to secure votes for the Socialist Party during the June 2017 parliamentary elections in collaboration with a local crime family: the Avdylaj clan.
