The Puka judiciary corruption, as reported recently on Top Channel’s
investigative show “Fiks Fare”, has made the Justice Minister, Nasip
Naco, and majority Parliament Members to admit loudly that the system
suffers from corruption, and that this is just the tip of the iceberg.
During the report of the
European Integration Commission, the Minister of Justice, Nasip Naco,
greeted the investigation and admitted that corruption has spread in all
“I want to thank Fiks Fare for making it possible
to see a problem that has been there for years, and that makes us
blush”, Naco said.
Parliament Members Gramoz Ruci and Taulant Balla declared that this case shows how deeply has corruption infiltrated the system.
problem in our justice system is not one single judge, secretary,
chancellor, prosecutor or lawyer. This was just the tip of the iceberg,
but Puka is the last bit of this system. There are no legal problems,
but there is a basic problem with the efficiency of institutions”, Ruci
“Those shocking images coming from Top Channel and Fiks
Fare should be stopped through legal mechanisms. Around all court cafes
there are middle men who play for judges, chancellors and everyone
else”, Balla declared.
Balla added that the reviewing of the Penal Code is urgent, together with the law implementation in all justice links.
High Council of Justice is one of the biggest problems in our
judiciary, and whoever in the HCJ who goes against reforms, clearly
doesn’t want this country to function well. The same situation can be
found at the Supreme Court”, Balla declared.
Justice corruption remains one of the most problematic issues of Albania, in all European Union reports of the recent years.
