German Ambassador to Tirana, Sussane Schutz: Albanian politicians should prosecuted - the abusive ones

 The Albanian Embassy in Albania, Sussane Schutz, welcomed the initiative undertaken by the opposition for vetting in politics. But she stressed that the vetting should not be confused with justice reform.

"Politicians must go to justice and be prosecuted if they have committed criminal charges, but the vetting in politics should not be confused with that of justice," she said.

"Must be the same principle for politicians and everyone else. Criminal acts, corruption, are unacceptable and, as such, should be prosecuted. It is important that the appropriate bodies of the justice system are set up for this purpose, which will enable criminal prosecution, including when the subjects are politicians. Equally important is not to confuse the vetting in the justice system with the vetting in the political system," she said.

Asked about the refusal of justice and the failure of the special anti-corruption structure, SPAK, and the Bureau of Investigation, Ambassador Gjemane has this argument:

"Let me say in advance that the process of vetting that is taking place in Albania is a real and important opportunity for the country to put the entire justice system on a new and independent policy base. As far as I know, this process has had its own delays because of different processes or steps that I would not go into specific details. The Supreme Prosecution Council and the High Judicial Council are likely to be set up soon. This is the basic condition for the SPAC and National Investigation Bureau to be established, which have a key role in judicial reform," said Schutz.

For Albania's EU integration process, the chief of the German diplomatic mission in Albania said that the reforms are key in this process and that skeptics have to be persuaded with concrete steps.
