“What dis Azem’s friends within the DP see when he came out of his office?”
“They saw he was leaving and facing danger while they were waiting for him in their offices. Do they know something given that they were there? Why haven’t they said anything? Why didn’t these so called ‘friends’ who were there that day, offer information on the circumstances of the event in order to help shed some light on the truth?” This is only one of the questions that Izet Haxhia, the person who was given a 25 years prison sentence for the so called ‘murder of the century’, namely Azem Hajdari’s murder, raises in this special interview for Albanian Free Press, while the court has decided to open the case. Haxhia mentions the names of Azem’s 5 or 6 friends, who, according to him, never went to testify about his murder. He goes even further by confirming that another interesting element in this case is the absence of the State Police. On the other hand, the defense attorney says that “if this murder is not solved, Albanian justice will fail”. However, he’s optimistic that justice will be made. “I have faith, because I have faith on the justice reform. Everyone’s equal in front of the law. Time has come for the rule of law”, he says.
