“If the judicial reform does not catch ‘big fishes’, then it’s not worthy of such name”
The arrest of the so called “big fishes” will mark an important milestone of the reform in justice. This is the opinion that the former MP and former Defence minister, Sabit Brokaj offers for Albanian Free Press, adding that “if this reform does not achieve this, then it’s not worthy of this name”. As far as the idea to grant amnesty for rich politicians is concerned, he has declared that “this thesis is a self incriminating thesis of those who come up with it”. “If this happens, then we should also grant amnesty for judges, prosecutors, criminals; in other words, we should declare a general amnesty. Why do they seek an amnesty for politicians, while they’re the ones who make laws and manage the money of the state and the Albanian taxpayers’? What’s the point of having a reform in the justice system?!”, he says. Brokaj also offers his insight on the so called “Xhafaj” affair, considering it as a groundless case. “This sort of smokescreen aims at spreading insecurity amidst the international community, creating the impression that PM Rama is unable to government because his people are ‘incriminated’. So, defamation and groundless accusation made up by insane people. The only goal for the DP is to seize power through defamation, blackmail and scheming. But in a democratic system, governments do not fall like that. These are unacceptable methods”, he says.
