Prosecutor General is screened, DP: She upholds Edi Rama’s interests
SESSION

Yesterday, Prosecutor General, Arta Marku appeared in front of the Independent Qualifying Commission which screened her assets and at the same time, the decisions taken by her. While passing the first “test” relating to her wealth and being qualified as fit to continue her duty, she encountered several obstacles as far as the second aspect of screening is concerned. According to the commission, an individual accuses Arta Marku of keeping him in prison and sentencing him to 2 months for drunk driving, considering this as an extreme measure. Meanwhile, the foreign observer of the International Monitoring Operation, Theo Jacobs has asked Marku about the reasons that pushed her to insist that this person be remanded into custody. He said that “Mrs. Marku shouldn’t just issue orders, but also improve the image of the Prosecution”. Meanwhile, the decision on Marku is expected to be given today and if the decision is a positive one, Marku, who has been elected as Prosecutor General on a temporary basis, is entitled to a seven year term in office. The Democratic Party has reacted on this. This party’s MP, Enkelejd Alibeaj has launched accusations about the way the vetting process has been handled so far. According to him, the Independent Qualifying Commission is using double standards even when it comes to prosecutors and judges who are in the same position. Alibeaj said that the same thing will also happen with Arta Marku, whom he considered to be an instrument in the hands of Edi Rama. According to him, the prosecutor general will be reconfirmed in this post not because she meets the criteria, but because she upholds Edi Rama’s interests.
