The technical Minister of Justice, Gazmend Bardhi sued on Friday the institution’s former General Secretary, Juliana Hoxha on grounds of duty abuses.
Hoxha’s indictment is related to her role in the electronic ankle bracelets scandal. She was the person who signed the contract with the winning company that would provide the bracelets.
The private company, a consortium of economic operators, which won the tender for the electronic ankle bracelets, has also been sued by the Ministry of Justice. The indictments follow an administrative inquiry conducted by the ministry on the purchase of ‘electronic surveillance device’ with a total value of EUR 2 Million.
The monitoring devices were given back to the Ministry of Justice a few days on request of minister Bardhi and are now expected to be tested by the field’s experts.
