The Italian citizen who was detained on Monday in Durresi Harbor after being found carrying an object which is alleged to be used for surveillance purposes, was released earlier this Tuesday.
The Police authorities of Durresi contacted the Italian authorities in order to enquire about the penal record of the citizen in question and were informed that there is no legal accusation directed towards him. However, the Albanian authorities wait for the official results of the laboratory examination of the suspicious object in order to create a clear judgment on the matter.
The Italian citizen himself argued during the questioning phase before the prosecutor's office that "I am a water engineer and this object is not what you think, but it services for the examination of water quality".
