Ex Premier Sali Berisha, now Prime Minister urges a new provocation to clash again North and South obliging the General Attorney and Tribunals to open the crimes during the civil war in Albania in 1997, as only solution to deviate a collapse energetic caos of the country.
The Albanian Government is preparing a great offensive against Opposition, using as politically rhetoric a process against some crimes made during civil war period in Albania in 1997. According to Albanian Press, tow processes has been opened in Cerik (Elbasani Region) and Vlora, when some of securities official’s forces has been died crashed with protests during the collapse of pyramids schemes in Albania 1997.

But, in reality Albania is passing a catastrophic period, missing electricity and the country is going to a very critic economic situation. Under influence of the Prime Minister Sali Berisha, the Tribunals and Persecutors of Albania, are opening some crimes made in 1997 when Albania is including to Civil War between Northern and South after pyramids schemes collapse made (According to CNN, Civil War explodes in Albania in 1997 Between Geghues (really Albanian from Northern Provinces including Kosovo and Western FYROM) and Toskes (Must of population old Epiriotean Greek origin).

Even the Albanian opinion has deviate the year 1997 catching the terminology as “Brutal History of Albanian modern state” from “Civil War” to “Collapse Situation from pyramids schemes”, these times is come to back again. Annalist in Albania think that the initiative to open Tribunals of 1997, is a new crises to deviate the really critic economic situation of the country, but supports another politic offensive of Leader Berisha against Albanian opposite.

Anyway if Berisha is to reopen 1997, using “Independent Tribunals” and the critic situation for General Persecutor of Albania, the only problematic country in Balkan Region should come back again to anarchy of 1997 favorising many protests in Southern Albania against the Government, a very risk for stability of the region .

In March 1997 Albania was going out of self control to Civil War, when about 8 000 victims. According to statistics only Vlora Region had about 1600 victims.

Albanian Civil War (1997)
In late 1996 and early 1997, several failed get-rich-quick schemes robbed hundreds of thousands of Albanians of their life savings. When protestors demonstrated in the streets demanding restitution, riot police attacked them. The lack of an acceptable government solution to this problem exacerbated the situation, and the riots spread across the country. These riots, and the state of anarchy which they caused, are known as the Albanian civil war of 1997. At the end of the conflict, more than 360 people had been killed and power had transferred from the Democratic Party to the Socialist Party.
Although the Albanian civil war was a dramatic event which garnered international attention, it was but one piece of that country's long and difficult transition from an isolationist Communist state to a parliamentary democracy, which began in 1992.
The Albanian financial crisis had began earlier in December of 1996, when protestors in the capital city of Tirana demonstrated against the government, which they held responsible for the collapse of several investment funds. The problem was worsened when $1.2 billion of Albanians' savings were wiped out by pyramid schemes on January 24, and thousands of Albanians took to the streets in the southern city of Lushnje. During the ensuing riots, protestors stole over 500,000 rifles and other arms from government depots. On January 25, Foreign Minister Shehu is attacked by demonstrators. The next day, thousands of protestors convene at in Tirana and clash with riot police. The civil war had now expanded throughout the country, as governments buildings are set on fire across Albania.
The riots had now expanded from protests over lost money to a general protest against the government. On March 1, the Prime Minister, Aleksander Meksi, resigns, and the next day the government declares a national state of emergency. As the government and military establishments scatter to the wind and anarchy sweeps across the country, the southern half of Albania falls under the control of rebels and criminal gangs. In addition, over 10,000 Albanians flee to Italy, which creates resentment and a refugee crisis there. At this point, the insurgents have solidified their control of the country by seizing the last government stronghold of Gjirokaster.
On March 11, the members of the Socialist Party win a major victory when their Bashkim Fino is appointed prime minister. However, the transfer of power did not stop the unrest, as protests spread to northern Albania. By March 13, all major population centers were engulfed in demonstrations, and foreign countries began to evacuate their citizens from Albania. In the three months of protests, the Albanian economy suffered a heavy blow as unemployment and inflation sharply rose, while the gross domestic product and the value of the currency fell. In late March, the UN Security Council approved dispatching a multinational military force to Albania to oversee the distribution of international humanitarian aid and maintain order, and on April 15, the 7,000 troops participate in "Operation Alba," which helps restore rule of law to the country.

After MEIKO Company having experience in the field was instructed to establish ties with officials in Armenia in charge and strike a deal. The source also notes that the Armenian side was supposed to pay for the shipment. However, Turkish authorities allegedly denied transit to it, and the ship with 60 containers aboard turned back. They in Albania are sure that the Turkey’s motion was caused by its harsh relations with Yerevan. MEIKO leadership, in its turn, believes that Albania has nothing to do with the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia, because all selling procedures were carried out properly and legalized, so, today, the Albanian side is searching for other routes to deliver the shipment to Armenia. © CAUCAZ.COM Breaking News published on 29/07/2007
