From what has been discovered on the network, it can be seen that in one of the visits he was also honored with the "Gratitude of Tropoja" medal. The news was published in 2021 by the mayor, Rexh Byberi. According to him, the motivation behind such an honor was the fact that McGonigal has shown a permanent love for the Albanian nation. Damian Gjiknuri and Ardian Çela were also at the ceremony.

"Today in Tirana I was particularly privileged to hand over the awarded medal 'Gratitude of Tropoja' to Mr. Charles McGonigal, a former important personality with the rank of SAC of the most powerful investigative agency in the world, the FBI.

Mr. McGonigal has shown permanent love for our Homeland and Nation. Apart from my staff, the deputies of the Parliament of Albania, Mr. Damian Gjiknuri and Mr. Ardian Çela, participated in this very friendly and cordial ceremony. Mr. McGonigal was accompanied as always by his friend, our honorable fellow Albanian-American Agron Nezaj" - writes the mayor of Tropoja.

According to former Prime Minister Berisha, Agron Nezaj is exactly "Person A" who gave 225,000 dollars to the former FBI official in a car park. He is accused of not declaring this money, keeping it secret and the reasons for receiving it.
