|Mark Frroku in Tribunal|
Tirana prosecution demanded 25 years in prison for former Christian Democrat deputy and ally of Socialist Party, Mark Frroku.
Tirana Court sentenced Mark Frrokun, former Christian Democratic leader Socialist Party ally to 7 years and 6 months.The decision was made on allegations of property deprivation, money laundering and illegal construction.
But the Court said Frroku was innocent over the murder of the Albanian Alexander Kurti on March 5, 1999 in the capital of Belgium, Brussels.
This was the worst allegation for former MP Frroku, against whom Belgian officials of law and order had also filed testimony that protected the investigation relating to the murder of Kurti by him.
Mr Frroku's lawyers said they would appeal the First Instance Court's decision and that there is no charge for money laundering against him.
