    [30] Some 148 leks deficit in first six months of 1999 - AEC

    TIRANE, Sept 24 (ATA)- By D. koca,The Albanian Energetic Corporation (AEC), resulted with some 148 million leks deficit, during the first 6 months of '99. But, according to the Director General of this Corporation, Alfred Paloka, this chipher is far lower compared to the forseen sum of 1 billiard leks.

    Paloka, has bitterly reacted against the interventions of tax-offices affiliations in AEC bank accounts and branches. According to him, "the arbitrarily obtainment of the duties over the profit, at the time when AEC has resulted with a deficit for two years consecutively (1997-1998) has brought about great financial difficulties for this corporation as well as the failure of the foreseen investments".

    "This can be considered as a law violation, because companies resulting with a considerable deficit should not pay duties over the profit. That's why taxes organs should stop blocking banks' accounts of branches and AEC" Paloka said. /led/so/
