PD leader Lulzim Basha has reacted immediately after Prime Minister Edi Rama’s attack on the prosecution. Basha called upon the EU and US to put pressure on PM Rama and the governing majority to immediately interrupt the campaign of threats and pressure against the justice system, which aims to submit justice and guarantee the impunity of politicians that have been publicly exposed as linked with crime.

The campaign of threats that Edi Rama, Fatmir Xhafaj, Saimir Tahiri, and the governing majority have waged for three days against the justice system is a risky game to submit justice and worsen the impunity in Albania.

Basha added that if the government will be allowed to blackmail, threaten, and frighten justice, the corruption and crime in Albania will further rise. If the politicians under investigation for links to drug trafficking like Saimir Tahiri are allowed to threaten and blackmail justice, in Albania the occupation of crime and corruption will worsen.
