“I declare to you that I left Kosovo, with my car, for Tirana because I have to make music, and I had other people in the car with me. They are Fitim Muji, who is my driver, and Fisnik Syla, who is my friend. We entered the Morina Checkpoint at around 02:10 and during the check I was found with a pistol in my bag and bullets in my car.
I had this pistol in one of the bags, because I have three or four bags with me, because I left for Tirana for songs and I have had this for a long time. Someone gave me the weapon as a gift. A friend of mine from Germany, who is no longer alive today. “The people who were with me in the car did not know that I had a pistol, because I did not even know that I had the pistol in my bag, I had forgotten it,” Morina said in her statement.
The 34-year-old singer was traveling with two other people, Fitim Muji and Fisnik Syla, who also fell into the hands of the police.
