Accused of being a secret agent sent by the Vatican, Archbishop Jul Bonati was arrested by the Albanian Communist regime's secret police.
During his trial, the archbishop of Durres said, “Our goal as religious men is to unite people in brotherhoods around the world. Catholicism’s enemy is the mistake, not the guilty; therefore, its enemy is Communism, not the Communists.”
Sentenced to the Psychiatric Hospital of Durres, the scholar and intellectual was tortured physically, mentally and emotionally until his death,killed by mentally deranged patients, on November 5, 1951.
