The US Ambassador to Tirana, Yuri Kim, reacted after the Special Court Against Corruption (SPAK) sentenced former Prosecutor General Adriatik Llalla to two years in prison.
Kim declared on social networks that SPAK is giving positive results each day more. Today’s sentencing proved that no one is above the law.
“Good to see SPAK delivering more and more results. This case, which involves a former high official barred from the USA for significant corruption, shows that no one – no matter how powerful – is above the law. When all are equal before the law, all have dignity. That is true dignity”, Kim said.
The Special Anticorruption Prosecution has sentenced the former Prosecutor General, Adriatik Llalla, to two years in prison and five years without the right two work for any public institution.
Llalla was sentenced for hiding assets and failing to declare his wealth.
The Court also seized 22,000 square meters of land and an apartment in Durres.
Since February 2018, Llalla has been on the Black List of the US State Department, who barred him and his family members from entering the USA.
Llalla sought to be acquitted of the charge through his lawyer, Sokol Hazizaj, who claimed that the case against Llalla was biased, unfair and illegal.
