                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Aug. 8 - Besides many attempts to increase tourist resources there have been noted some shortcomings for which authorities should pay a considerable higher attention to resolve.
The Institute of Public Health has concluded that sea waters alongside the Albanian shores overcome the hygienic levels set from the World Health Organization. The study checked waters in Durres, Vlora and Saranda showing that black waters have significantly polluted their waters. 
In Durres the beach at the Plepa area, Golem and Currila is three high more polluted than allowed. Waters in Vlora and Saranda are above the WHO norms as well. Cleanest waters are in Dhermi, Himara, Borsh, Velipoja and Zvernec.
In a separate case health officials in Elbasan said that there is an increased number of patients suffering from skin infections. Patients have been mainly children up to 12 years old, according to doctor Besnike Dedja. The cause of the infection is polluted waters in the Shkumbini river beaches. Last summer there were some 300 persons in Elbasan who suffered from the same disease. 
There is a considerable higher number of patients in Saranda hospital as well, 50-60 a day, mainly children. They suffer from high temperature, diarrhea and vomiting that doctors say come from the hot summer and hygienic causes. There have also been patients with skin infections that doctors say may have come from the sand in the beach. Presence of the rubbish in the area may be another cause.. Hepatitis A cases have also been found, something that has urged health authorities add specialists in the hospital.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Aug. 7 - The European Commission gave Monday a 13 million euro grant to Albania, the second part of a 25 million euro funding to assist the country's macro-financial sphere aiming to support economic reform and stabilization. In November 2005 there was the first installment of 3 million euro and in March the other 9 million euro.
"This assistance was approved by the European Union in April 2004 and is provided in the context of the stabilization programmed supported by the International Monetary Fund. Its objective is to ease the Albania's external financing constraints, strengthen its balance of payments position and to underpin the reform process towards a market-oriented economic system. This requires continued efforts by the Albanian authorities to establish strong and modern institutions and a continuation of stability-oriented macroeconomic policies," said Hubert Petit,  Acting Head of the European Commission Delegation in Albania. The disbursement of the last part was made possible after the fulfilling of a series of preconditions, which included a favorable track record of the economic stabilization programme supported by the IMF and the progress in reforming key areas such as public finance management, public administration, financial sector, business environment and private sector development, he said. 
The IMF Executive Board made a favorable review of Albania's current three-year Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility arrangement, whereas the European Commission positively assessed the efforts made by Albania, in particular during the recent months, in the above-mentioned areas.
Petit said that this event came only some weeks after the signature of the Stabilization and Association Agreement with the EU (June 12) and showed that the agreement is the beginning of a new and more difficult phase. As President Manuel Barroso said during his visit in Tirana "This is no time for Albania to relax its efforts. The real work begins after the Agreement has been signed. Albania has to establish a track-record in implementing this Agreement, in order to move closer to the EU". But, this also shows that efforts pay and are recognized.  
Petit used the opportunity to remind Albanian politics as well. "I take this opportunity, however, to say that the EU integration process requires joint efforts of all Albanian political forces. Successful efforts in the field of economic reform should be carried out in a sounder political environment, which is conducive to more progress. The latest events in Parliament have unfortunately showed a lack of political maturity. A more constructive stance and shared responsibility are crucial features in this context. It is also important to intensify efforts to build consensus on reforms through dialogue between all forces and stakeholders of the Albanian society and to avoid unnecessary confrontational political climate."
Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha said that aid was a confirmation of the success of the reforms undertaken from his government in improving the management of the public finances, public administration, consolidation of finances, and promoting a favorable climate for investment and the business. "I would express the deep gratitude of the Albanian government to the European Commission, European Union and member countries for this generous aid and for the colossal investment they have made during these years," said Berisha at the ceremony. The premier reassured Europe of the government's determination to continue reforms and get integrated into the block. "Once again I would like to guarantee that Albania's integration into the EU and NATO remain the most major goal of the government and the Albanian society," said Berisha.

There were also other immigrants coming from other western European countries for vacations or to see their families. So during the first week of August 35,677 Albanians and 6,557 foreigners came by ferries from the Italian ports of Bari, Ancona and Trieste.
Other thousands of Albanians come from Greece. In Kakavie on Monday there came 7,780 Albanians and 278 foreigners with 1,510 vehicles and  2,860 Albanians and 144 foreigners left the country in 865 vehicles. Police said that they expect more Albanian immigrants to enter in the coming days. There have been no incidents or delays in the crossing point due to  better coordination with the Greek police.
 The situation in Qafe Thane border crossing point with Macedonia has been more difficult in recent days due to the great influx. Customs head Jace Hysolli said that on average 2,000 persons have entered the country daily, mainly from Kosova. The crossing point has a slower control because it has not installed the new system.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Aug. 9 - Despite successes achieved during the first half this year police say they have to intensify the fight against organized crime, terrorism and corruption in the future. The fight against drug trafficking remains a top priority for them. Police priorities in the future will be to create a national center for collecting data on drugs and preparing the proper legislation. Police are also to prepare a draft of the law concerning the fight against terrorism and procedures that follow that. Fighting human trafficking remains another top issue. Improving police image before the public opinion is a new goal that police have to deal with. Border control remains a priority issue in the context of the country's integration into the European Union and NATO.
All these were mentioned Wednesday at a meeting analyzing police results during the first half of this year. Police spokesman Bajram Ibraj noted some results of his institution that had as its main goals increasing public security, and fighting criminality, organized crime and corruption. Ibraj said that murders and sexual crimes had fallen and police discovery capabilities had increased. Ibraj mentioned that 56 criminal groups were hit this year and 879 persons were arrested involved with them. There have been 188 cases of drug trafficking. Giving figures, Ibraj said there have been 1,143 criminal cases and 1,092 of them were discovered by the police. Police have sequestered 81 kg of heroin; 17.8 gr. of methadone; 1.3 kg of cocaine; 2,378 kg of marijuana/hashish; and 0.95 litres of hashish oil. 24,279 cannabis plants and 580 poppy plants have been destroyed. Police have been involved in seven operations with their international colleagues from Turkey, Italy and Germany. Police have identified 672 cases of money laundering, mainly in the illegal trafficking of cigarette packages, coffee, sheep and livestock, mobile phones and gold. During this period police have identified 4,517 crimes and 879 persons at large have been arrested. There have been 44 murders down from 57 in the same period last year but suicides increased to 108 and 59 attempted suicides. Car theft has lowered from 322 in 2005 to 302 this year. But there has been noted an increase in shopthefts from 332 to 408 and home thefts from 282 to 301 this year. Most of them were in Tirana. Road accidents have decreased to 121 deaths from 156 deaths in 2005 in 418 accidents.The number of road accidents is a great concern, said Ibraj, who also added his concern about the increased number of children and teenagers involved in crime. He also appealed for more public awareness against crime in the family.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, Aug. 6 - A better management of the border crossing points and the installation of the TIMS control system have significantly reduced human traffikcing at the country's borders, according to police reports. This has tranferred such trafficking to green areas like forests or moutanouns areas which serve to hide the illegals-to-be. Police said that some 85 percent of the people involved in such illegal activity are residents from border areas. Border points are now mainly used as transit points to neighboring copuntries and the EU member countries. During the first six months this year Korca city was the main problem for this issue with 65 penal cases of human trafficking. It is followed by Gjirokastra, Vlora and Durres. In total there have been 196 cases of efforts of human trafficking stopped by police, or eight more than a year ago. It is also noted that some of the cases of human trafficking have involved police and other officials. Human trafficking has been one of the topics which Albania will try to keep under control along its integration road toward the European Union and NATO.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, July 24 - Albanian Interior Minister Sokol Olldashi said Monday at a parliament's session that some 130 killers who have been sentenced by the Albanian courts were at large, or 'free in the streets,' accusing the prosecutor office for delaying penal procedures to arrest them.
True that the statement came at a political row between the central government of Prime Minister Sali Berisha and Prosecutor-General Theodhori Sollaku. But that is a very terse detail that should normally disturb every citizen. It has been long known and said that Albania has already good laws but the problem remains their application. This time we are speaking of people who have killed someone, something that in the tiny Balkan country could normally spark a family feud. That also speaks of why the Albanian authorities lack trust among the population.
As if to support such an idea a 60 year old man kills two other people at his home after they claimed the move of a dividing wall. Is that the answer, or a solution to such a request? That may be interpreted in different ways but one may be that the people lack the trust in the government authorities. Media said that the two murdered persons had gone to the police to resolve the issue. Police had pulled down the wall in favor of the two dead persons and following a court decision. It seemed that the laws were not efficient enough to stop the suspect commit the crimes with 29 Kalashnikov bullets.
People may listen everyday murders occurring all around the country. It would be a surprise if Albanian print and electronic media would not report a murder somewhere in the country. Local media have all their lengthy reports on such crimes.

                    [post_content] => TIRANA, July 24 - The number of tourists visiting Albania in the last two months is some times higher compared to the same period last year, the Interior Ministry reported. Some 155,000 persons entered the country during the third week of July, almost a double number compared to last year. Some 56,000 out of them were foreign tourists. It has been long known that the greatest number of tourists in the country during summer time come from Kosova and Macedonia. It seems that the border crossing points this year have set better infrastructure to treat with the arrivals.
