Albanian parliament votes to oust prosecutor-general
Prime Minister Sali Berisha
TIRANA, July 24 - Albanian parliament voted Monday to oust Prosecutor-General Theodhori Sollaku for mishandling and abusing his post, a move that should be then approved by the country’s president. Parliament’s Democratic Party-led majority of Prime Minister Sali Berisha voted 79 in favor with one against to approve a 200-page report following a two-month investigation into some 80 allegations against Sollaku, also saying he had cost the government million of dollars in damages. Parliamentarians of the opposition led by the Socialist Party boycotted the voting in a sign of protest saying the investigation broke the constitution, laws and parliamentary procedures. The report said it found Sollaku cost the government US$20 million in damages paid to unfairly imprisoned persons, did not start or suspended penal procedures, did not extradite criminal suspects and failed to declare personal private properties.
