After viewing the footage, police saw that a group of 20 people has thrown stones and attacked with strong objects. On his part, a day after the protest, the Interior minister, Fatmir Xhafaj has praised police forces for their professionalism and composure shown while handling the protest. According to him, police have upheld the law and the interest of the citizens.
But, the chairman of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha has reacted by saying that the opposition’s positioning remains unchanged even after the May 26th protest. According to him, the protest fulfilled its objective, by revealing everyone the truth about a government connected to the underworld. “Our positioning is unchanged: Fatmir Xhafaj must leave and will leave. For as long as he remains a minister, there will never be an inquiry and true justice for him and his brother and there will not even be a true fight against crime and drugs”, the leader of the opposition said a day after the protest.
