“The only case in which I’m directly involved is the one regarding former minister of Interior, Sajmir Tahiri. Now I’m a simple prosecutor and I will continue to work on my other cases until a new order for my transfer to another institution is issued”, he added. On the other hand, politicians have reacted about this decision by launching strong accusations. The leader of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha accused Attorney General Arta Marku of being an instrument in the hands of PM Rama to destroy the evidence in Tahiri’s case. “They will arrest him to keep up appearances and then they will acquit him by destroying evidence”, he publicly accused. Meanwhile, the leader of the Socialist Movement for Integration, Monika Kryemadhi, considered Hajdarmataj’s removal unlawful and added that Rama will not be able to escape justice through these methods.
The US ambassador to Tirana, Donald Lu, said when, he was asked by journalists on this issue, that these high profile cases should move forward without political interferences.
