The Socialist Movement for Integration Deputy-Chair, Luan Rama asked the immediate dismissal of State Police Director, Haki Çako’s dismissal. This request followed the violation of several SMI exponents in Puka and Fushe-Kruja.
“We ask for the immediate dismissal of State Police Director, Haki Çako, the Berat police station chief, the Fushe-Kruja police station chief and Lezha Police Station chief. Otherwise, any lack of reaction in front of such scandalous facts will be seen as complicity by the highest ranks officials, including the Renaissance chair,” said Luan Rama.
He warned that if no measure is taken the SMI exponents will find themselves forced to defend without exceeding the legitimacy borders.
“The Renaissance is escalating the episodes of violence,” stated Luan Rama, blaming directly Socialist Party for these acts of violence.
This harsh reaction came in a situation where the tensions seem to be increasing, while the elections’ date is only one week away.
