The Democratic Party has also welcomed the start of the work of the Special Anti-Corruption and Organised Crime Structure and supports its independent functioning.

Starting immediately to punish organized crime and corruption must be done professionally, impartially and decisively, the Democratic Party said in a Facebook post.

The Democratic Party recalls that it has adopted the law establishing the SPAK and the National Bureau of Investigation and is willing to give credence and not prejudice towards any of the prosecutors within this body, despite some of their decisions in the past.

“It is time for prosecutors to rise to the task and meet the expectations of Albanian citizens to end impunity for organized crime, promoters of criminals and corrupt officials, the DP said in its response,” posted the DP page on Facebook.

She also thanked the US for their assistance provided so far by making SPAK operational and for its willingness to continue supporting the independent functioning of this structure.
