Bushati: Vetting process to eradicate corruption in Albania’s judiciary

A vetting process that will screen hundreds of judges and prosecutors in Albania is seen as crucial to clean the country’s justice system of corrupt people, Socialist Party MP Ervin Bushati said at a meeting hosted by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in Rome, Italy.


“The vetting is extremely important to the efforts to eradicate corruption and remove corrupt people in all instances of the Albanian judiciary,” Bushati said in his remarks.

The head of the Albanian delegation to the event underlined that the justice system reform is necessary to create a new image of the judiciary.

The Albanian delegation included also Vice Parliament Speaker Vasilika Hysi, who provided an outline on progress of Albanian legislation on issues of conflict of interest, declaration of wealth, code of conduct and integrity of Albanian lawmakers. Hysi said that parliamentary majority and opposition were working together to create a new image of Albanian MPs.

The meeting discussed issues on promoting integrity in governance to fight corruption, as well as the parliamentary immunity.
