EU-US warns Albania against interference at prosecutor’s office independence
The U.S. Embassy Spokesman Bix Aliu issued a statement Monday saying that “we are very troubled by the recent actions of the Minister of Justice and the Minister of Interior to interfere with the independence of the Prosecutor's Office during an on-going investigation. All cases should be fully, completely and independently investigated without any outside interference or threats to prosecutors. Respect of all independent institutions is essential for a healthy democracy.”

That was directly connected with the recent clash between the prosecutor’s office and the government on an investigation against Fazlic.

"The Ambassadors of the European Union are troubled by recent developments concerning the judicial system in Albania," they said in a joint statement.

"We strongly call upon all, particularly the government, to respect the Constitutional provisions and principles of good governance, including accountability to the law."

Faslic, the kind of “lobbyist” we don’t need
The very least that could be said about Damir Faslic, the person who has been making the headlines in the Albanian written media for days now, is how shady a character he is. The structure of the answers he gave in his interview on the talk show “Opinion”, the structure of his very own “Top-Story” becomes even shadier with the possibility that Faslic could be “a suspect,” in other words someone who may have broken the law, but this remains to be proven by the relevant authorities in the days to come.
