Albania’s parliament early on Friday adopted long-awaited judicial reforms, after 18 months of technical and political work and days of tense negotiations.

All 140 members of parliament voted in favour of the reform, after negotiations between the three main political leaders led by US ambassador Donald Lu and EU head of delegation Romana Vlahutin on Thursday closed the last remaining disputes over various articles.

The judicial package, which is considered crucial for the fight against corruption and political influence, amended 58 articles of the constitution and passed several laws creating new justice institutions.

The reform was hailed by party leaders as marking a new beginning that will also open the way towards closer ties to the European Union.

„The reform will remove from the justice system all the corrupt judges and prosecutors … The vote will open the road for the much-awaited revolution in the country’s justice,“ Prime Minister, Edi Rama said.

The leader of the opposition Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, called the vote „a victory for all Albanians“ that will open up a new chapter in the country’s life.

US ambassador Lu congratulated Albanians and the parliament on „finding a consensus under incredibly severe pressure.“

„The United States is proud to have supported the drafting and negotiation of this strong reform package and we look forward to continuing our enduring partnership, which is now much stronger,“ he stated.

EU High Representative Federica Mogherini and EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn in a joint statement hailed „an unprecedented step addressing a longstanding request by the overwhelming majority of the citizens.

„It is also a major contribution to the fight against corruption and organised crime. These are all key priorities for Albania on its path towards integration into the EU,“ the statement read.

Albania next month expects a positive recommendation from the European Commission concerning its request to open accession talks with EU by the end of the year.

In order to make parties accept the draft, senior representatives of Western countries issued tough messages about the need for the reform and even took part in the negotiations themselves.

The US Assistant secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, in July brought to the table a compromise proposal that severed as a basis for consensus over the disputes that the parties had over the draft.

Commissioner Hahn was also directly worked with party leaders to find a consensus over the reform.

Albania MP’s Resignation Puts Focus on PM’s Style

The resignation of a Socialist MP, complaining of neglect and feeling bypassed, has put the spotlight on whether Edi Rama’s leadership is too autocratic.

The political scene in the Albania has been stirred by a Socialist MP’s resignation – and still more by his public letter to Prime Minister and Socialist Party leader Edi Rama.

The letter of departing Gjirokastra MP Vladimir Kosta was filled with emotion and passionate accusations directed towards Rama, accusing the Prime Minister of making the wrong political alliances, of concentrating power among a small group of people and of nepotism.

He also reminded the PM that his concerns about different issues were routinely dismissed, making him feel bypassed in his role as member of parliament.

Vladmir Kosta

Kosta is not the only Socialist MP accusing Rama of conducting a problematic leadership. Ben Blushi, a former minister and very articulate political voice, also had a difficult relationship with Rama – and is now a tough critic within the party.

Analysts in Tirana said the fact that Rama clearly has communication difficulties with his MPs comes as no surprise to them.

Neritan Sejamini, media analyst and political sciences lecturer at Tirana University, told BIRN that since his start in politics Rama has been something of an autocrat.

„He is a typical Balkan autocrat in the way he behaves, and, what’s most important, takes decisions. He is very good at imposing on others his own personal tastes and opinions, leaving no room for the opposition,“ Sejamini said.

However, he underlines that unlike some other authoritarian past leaders of the country, Rama has charisma and eloquence in the way he presents himself to the public.

„People are not used to seeing an authoritarian leader wearing red socks [referring to Rama’s choice of clothes] so they tend to see him in a better light than his predecessors,“ he remarked.

Mustafa Nano, another analyst and host of the TV show „Zululand“, told BIRN that he agrees that Rama is authoritarian, but he sees it as the least bad thing in his leadership style.

„Even leaders like former British Prime Minister Tony Blair had an autocratic style while lately you see [Republican would-be president] Donald Trump, a complete authoritarian who is supported by [many] people,“ he argued.

For Nano, a bigger backdraw with Rama is his taste in picking people.

„He has shocked me with his bad taste in recruiting people, some of whom have had past problems with the justice system. I really thought that he was emancipated enough to not make choices like that,“ he said.

Gilman Bakalli, Professor of Communications at the European University of Tirana, says leaders adapt their communication styles to different audiences.

07 Jul 16 Albania Prosecutor to Decide if Rama Illegally Financed Obama

Albanian prosecutors by the end of July will have to decide if the criminal complaint lodged by the opposition Democratic Party against Prime Minister Edi Rama merits an investigation.

Albania’s General Prosecutor is expected to decide soon whether to open an investigation into an opposition complaint against Prime Minister Edi Rama, accusing him of having illegally paid $80,000 to US President Barack Obama’s electoral campaign in 2012 in order to have a joint photograph of the two leaders together.

Albi Serani, spokesperson for the Prosecutor General, told BIRN that in accordance with standard procedures, it takes about one month to verify such complaints.

„During this time, prosecutors have to decide if there is any indication of a criminal element and in the case, and they then open an investigation, or they just dismiss the complaint,“ he explained.

The opposition centre-right Democratic Party raised the issue on Monday, claiming that Socialist Party leader Rama tried to gain illegal access to a campaign event of President Obama in San Francisco in October 2012, when Obama was seeking a second term.

It comes after Bilal Shehu, a US citizen of Albanian origin, pleaded guilty in a US Court in New Jersey to making illegal foreign donations to the Obama campaign.

The FBI said Shehu received the money from a foreign source and handed it to a joint fundraising committee to disguise its true origin, so that an unnamed foreign national could attend a campaign event.

As a result of this contribution, the unnamed “foreign national” was allowed a joint photograph with the US President, it said. Shehu will be sentenced on October 5. He faces up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

Though Rama has not been named in the case, the opposition maintains that Shehu took the money from Rama’s party to secure him a picture with Obama, which was displayed during the Albanian general election campaign in 2013, while Rama was fighting to be elected Prime Minister.

Rama’s office has denied the accusation, stating that he had „no connection with any kind of illegal funding“ and did not take part in Obama’s election campaign.

In 2013, a BIRN investigation revealed that the then Prime Minister, Sali Berisha, spent taxpayers’ money on a smear campaign in the US and Albania directed against his political opponent – Rama – which played well with US Republicans………………………..

Albania: Cannabis Production Far From Coming to an End

Albania: Cannabis Production Far From Coming to an End

Two years after a massive police raid in the renegade Albanian village of Lazarat, not much has changed in the region’s cannabis production, aside from a shift in the geography of cultivation, according to Balkan Insight (BIRN).

Screen Shot 2015 09 18 at 3.11.55 PM copyLazarat Village, Albania (Photo:Wikipedia)In June 2014, 800 police officers were deployed in Lazarat – considered “Europe’s cannabis capital” – as part of a nationwide police operation to crackdown cannabis plantations in the country. The authorities gained control of the village after a five-day shootout between heavily armed villagers and the police forces.

Fewer cultivation plots were identified last year, but the overall surface being cultivated was larger, Altin Qato, Vice General Director of the police, told BIRN.

In addition, most of the large planted areas are state properties, and criminals have also started to plant the crops in forests and remote mountain areas.

The village had been producing about 900 tons of marijuana per year, worth € 4.5 billion (US$ 4.9 billion) or nearly half of Albania’s gross domestic product.

According to the US State Department 2016 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR), the Albanian State Police (ASP) reported that through the first 10 months of 2015, the marijuana seizures totaled 6.87 metric tons and an ongoing nationwide eradication effort has also destroyed 689,815 marijuana plants.

Qato said that there has been a significant drop in the amount of cannabis entering Albania’s neighbors in the last years.

However, he said, up to mid-June, the police had destroyed a larger quantity of cannabis plants compared to the same period in 2015. Police reports also show that the cultivation of cannabis plants remains widespread in the country, according to BIRN.

Participation in any stage of the production and trafficking of drugs is a criminal activity in Albania. Offenders involved in the production, sale, distribution and possession of drugs can face between five to 10 years in prison, while drug trafficking entails between seven to 15 years.

“One of the factors that has increased cannabis cultivation in the country is impunity, as a result of the low quality of investigations,” Andi Dura, a lawyer and lecturer in criminal justice at the European University of Tirana, told BIRN.

Pjerin Ndreu, vice-director and Socialist MP in the Albanian Parliament’s commission on National Security, told BIRN that unemployment, corruption and money laundering are factors that have contributed to the activity. He also said that the lack of cooperation between other institutions and the police has make the fight harder.

Nikoleta Kovaci, a journalist covering police and crime issues at Shekulli newspaper, told BIRN, “A lot of other institutions could also help but are satisfied just to observe and are not doing their duty. It is time to change the approach.”

Albania remains a major source country for marijuana, according to the US State Department, with Greece and Italy as the main destinations for cannabis and its derivatives according to the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drugs Addiction (EMCDDA).

Organized criminal groups use Albania as a transit point for drug and human trafficking largely due to its geographically strategic location, weakened law enforcement and judicial systems as well as porous land borders, according to a 2013 UNODC report.

  • Former Romanian Prime Minister loses doctor degree due to plagiarism

    Romania’s Education Ministry should withdraw former Prime Minister Victor Ponta’s Doctor of Law degree due to plagiarism, the local commission that evaluates academic titles recommended on Thursday, June 30.

    The decision came four years after Ponta was first accused of plagiarizing half of his doctorate paper.

    The technical commission within the National Council for Attesting University Titles, Diplomas, and Certificates (CNATDCU) has determined that Victor Ponta plagiarized much of his doctoral thesis on international law, based on which he got his Doctor of Law title from the Bucharest University in 2003.

    Based on the commission’s expertise, 34 of the 35 CNATDCU members voted for the recommendation to withdraw Ponta’s doctor title. The former Prime Minister has two weeks to challenge the decision, according to local Mediafax.

    Romania’s anticorruption prosecutors go all in against the country’s richest MP

    Romania’s anticorruption prosecutors have indicted local investor Sebastian Ghita, the richest member of the Parliament, on multiple charges, including bribery, buying influence, money laundering, and extortion as well as driving without a valid license.

    He has been investigated under judicial control after covering a EUR 13 million bail, in April this year, as the Chamber of Deputies rejected the National Anticorruption Directorate – DNA’s request to waive Ghita’s immunity and allow him to be arrested.

    One of the charges against Ghita is extortion. In 2011, he apparently constrained another local businessman to pay EUR 500,000 to his company Asesoft International in order to stop the broadcasting of denigrating materials about the man’s company by a news TV channel Asesoft owned at that time (Realitatea TV). According to the prosecutors’ indictment report, the blackmailed businessman was “asphalt king” Theodor Berna and the company was Tehnologica Radion, according to local Hotnews.ro.

    Kosovo: Environmental Minister Resigns Over Bribery Scandal

    Environmental minister Ferid Agani, accused by a prosecutor of involvement in a bribery scandal, was released from his position on Monday.

    Screen_Shot_2016-06-23_at_2.55.53_PM_copy.pngPristina, Kosovo (Photo Credit: Wikipedia)He asked Prime Minister Isa Mustafa in a letter to let him quit until he is declared innocent, Reuters reported.

    The scandal, which occurred when he was serving as health ministerunder the previous administration, involved doctors and others taking bribes of up to US$ 560 in order to refer patients, some of which were already dead, to two private clinics. Sixty-four people, including 44 doctors, were indicted last Wednesday in connection with the scheme.

    The Office of the Chief State Prosecutor wrote that Agani was accused of abusing his official position of authority, under the Criminal Code of the Republic of Kosovo. He allegedly signed papers that paid € 4.5 million (US$ 5.11 million) to the clinics, Reuters reported.

    Agani, who has previously served as a Member of Parliament, is currently an assistant professor at the University of Pristina and the president of the Justice Party.

    He has professed his innocence, posting on Facebook that his party stands in firm and unanimous support for its head, and that the leadership is convinced that the truth will prevail.

    He also asked for his followers to keep their faith in him, a minister who was known as a health care reformer in Kosovo.

    Political analyst Halil Toshi said that an indictment against a minister should be a cause for worry. The case may raise some questions, he added, as there are other big corruption cases that have not been tackled yet, Telegrafi wrote.

    Kosovo’s healthcare system ranks as one of the worst in Europe, and the Citizens Network for Peace, Reconciliation and Human Security wrote in March that a mindset within the country is if a bribe to a doctor or nurse is not provided, then there will be no service or care.

    Kosovo ranked 103 out of 168 in the 2015 Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index.

    A former ruling party legislator was in court earlier in June for allegedly running a gang that bribed officials and faked documents in order to get land cheaply, overall depriving the state and Kosovo Serbs millions of dollars.

    Serbian Prime Minister Cancels Western Trips

    Serbian Prime Minister Cancels Western Trips

    Surprise announcement after meeting EU, U.S. diplomats follows PM’s earlier visit with Russian leader Putin.

    15 June 2016

    Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic confirmed yesterday he had cancelled planned visits to Brussels and the United States, a day after meeting the EU and U.S. ambassadors to Belgrade.

     

    Vucic did not divulge what was said at the meetings. As Balkan Insight notes, Serbian media close to the government accused the ambassadors of fomenting dissent by backing recent protests against a big construction project in Belgrade.

     

    EU Commission

    “Serbia takes care of her dignity and I do not respond well to pressures. We will continue on our EU path, but on some issues, we have different points of view,” Vucic (pictured) said.

     

    There is also speculation in local media about the role President Vladimir Putin of Russia, Serbia’s strongest ally, plays in Serbian affairs. During Vucic’s unannounced visit to Russia last month, he and Putin discussed the makeup of the next Serbian cabinet, the Kremlin website said, according to B92.

     

    Large protests over the past month against a proposed massive government-backed commercial development on the Belgrade riverfront have put Vucic, a former ultranationalist now lobbying for EU membership, on guard. He has been unable to form a new government although his Progressive Party easily won the April national elections.

     

    “It was my decision to cancel the trip, not theirs. This decision will not threaten our relationship with the U.S. or the EU since I have shown them that I am a serious politician,” Vucic told the media yesterday, Balkan Insight reports.

     

    His reluctance to explain the reason behind the sudden cancellations has fueled speculation that Serbia faced Russian pressure to back out of the talks, ABC News says. Serbia is Moscow’s closest ally in the Balkans and has refused to join in Western sanctions on Russia.

     

    Both the EU and U.S. ambassadors strongly denied any connection to the protests in Belgrade.

     

     

    • ABC News refers to unnamed analysts who believe Putin told Vucic that the pro-Russian Socialist Party must remain in the government.

     

    • Serbian daily Vecernje Novosti speculated along similar lines, suggesting Russia wished Socialist leader and acting Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic to stay in the cabinet, B92 says.

     

    • Protests against the UAE-backed Belgrade Waterfront development were sparked by the late-night demolition of residential and commercial property. Vucic acknowledged in May that top Belgrade officials orchestrated the demolitions, and that they will face legal consequences.

    NATO: ITCY Mafia: Karadzic Lawyer May Face Contempt of Court

    Karadzic Lawyer May Face Contempt of Court

    The Hague tribunal has opened an investigation into a member of the defence team of the former Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic, for alleged contempt of court.

    Theodor Meron, president of the UN Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals, MICT, on the request of the Prosecutor’s Office, has launched an investigation into a member of the defence team of former Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic, for contempt of the court.

    The prosecution said it suspects that the lawyer, whose name has not been given, revealed the contents of a confidential submission from April in which Karadzic sought brief release to attend a commemoration ceremony for his late brother, Ivan, in Serbia.

    In the request sent to Judge Meron, prosecutors allege that “a member of Karadzic’s defence team submitted confidential information to the media, revealing that Karadzic requested a temporary release to attend a commemoration ceremony for his brother, and that the Government of Serbia gave the necessary guarantees.”

    According to Meron, “this person may have committed the offence of contempt of court by publishing confidential information, including the fact that Karadzic requested a temporary release to attend a commemoration ceremony”.

    Although the member of Karadzic’s defence team is not named in the submission, many believe the complaint relates to statements given by Goran Petronijevic, one of his lawyers, to the Belgrade newspaper Kurir.

    Petronijevic told Kurir that Karadzic had requested “temporary residence” in Serbia to attend a commemoration ceremony in Obrenovac and said that the Belgrade authorities had given guarantees that he would return to The Hague.

    Petronijevic also said the decision on the request would be made “next Tuesday”, that is, May 31, which duly happened. The Appeals Chamber that day rejected Karadzic’s request.

    Petronijevic was the first to reveal the contents of the confidential request, submitted on 28 April.

    Karadzic’s defence lawyer, Peter Robinson, has refused to comment on the allegations against the team.

    “Considering that the investigation is ongoing, it would not be appropriate to publicly comment on the charges,” Robinson told BIRN. He also said: “Karadzic’s defence will cooperate fully with the investigation”.

    Disclosure of confidential documents is punishable as “interfering knowingly and willfully with the enforcement of justice”.
