Arrests by SPAK, Meta: Information leaked the day before, most also implicated in election crimes
The President of the country, Ilir Meta has commented on the arrests of SPAK where 32 arrest warrants were issued, in Elbasan, Durrës and Tirana for cracking down on criminal groups.
Invited to the show "The Unexposed" on MCN TV, he said that SPAK should have acted before the elections, as they are the ones who have been accused of electoral crimes.
Meta also called alarming the fact that according to him the information was leaked a day before these arrest warrants were executed.
"SPAK should have acted before the elections. There should be explanations for the public why the latest action did not lead to the detention of all suspects
The people who were arrested today by SPAK, are those who have been charged with electoral crimes. Alarming is the fact that the information was leaked the day before these arrest warrants were executed. We hope that justice works and that those who were untouchable until yesterday are brought to justice today
It is important that the investigation continues and is independent, I am not only mentioning the incidents during the elections but also those before
Only a strong, non-selective blow, by not taking the side of one criminal group against another group, only by enforcing the law, will restore the citizens' trust in justice. The truth is that the criminalization of political and social life is like never before, we know what happens in different districts of Albania such as Fier, Durres, Shkodra, Elbasan, the dominance of criminal groups and rivalry between them are a very big problem.
"Only a strong blow to them and not selective and not taking the side of different groups, but to implement the law can restore security in the country ," said Meta.
