The man who opposed the USA for the election of Altin Duman as the head of SPAK leaves, the way is opened for the well-known professor

The man who opposed the USA for the election of Altin Duman as the head of SPAK

 Alfred Balla, excluded from vetting for 15 years, will no longer be a member of the High Prosecution Council. The decision was taken yesterday by the KLP itself, which determined the end of the mandate with 9 votes in favor and against only member Nurihan Seitaj. The newspaper reported a few days ago that the Telsa Assembly has restarted the procedure of selecting candidates from the ranks of lawyers and civil society to fill vacancies in the Supreme Judicial Council and vacancies in the Supreme Prosecution Council. The name of the candidate who is expected to replace Balla is Arta Mandro. It is said that she has the majority of votes in the KLP because at the time when Altin Dumani was elected as the head of the Special Prosecutor's Office, the vote of Arta Mandros was decisive. It was Mandro who chose the man of the Americans at the head of SPAK, unlike Alfred Balla, who voted for Edvin Kondil, the majority's preference. At that time there was a strong clash between Rama and the Americans, but in the end the USA showed the country by placing their man. In the case of the KLP, this time the American preference is Mandro to replace Balla, while the socialists want to catapult Erind Merkur.

Fierce debates

The meeting of the High Council of Prosecution for the end of the mandate of the chairman Alfred Balla took place with fierce debates. The issue of whether Balla should continue as chairman or not, divided the members into two 'camps'. Balla himself, who was not present at the meeting, with a letter addressed to the KLP, challenged the decision of the KPA to exclude him from justice for 15 years, saying that it is not immediate and that he was elected by the Assembly as a representative of civil society. "I am a member of the KLP elected by the Assembly from the representatives of the Albanian civil society... From the interpretation of Article 149/b of the Constitution, it is not clear that, in relation to the continuation of the stay in office, this should already be expressed Council, or the body of my name, which is the Parliament of Albania, or the Constitutional Court?", writes Balla. Due to high-pitched debates, the meeting that started at 11:00 was postponed for about 3 hours, while a committee of 3 members prepared a report on Balla's mandate to be submitted to the KLP for voting. The meeting resumed at 17:00 and it was decided to vote in favor of ending his mandate. Member Nurihan Seiti came out in support of Alfred Balla, saying that he should continue his duties, as the decision of the KPA comes into force only after publication in the official notebook. On the other hand, the member Sokol Stojani described her as Balla's spokesperson, while he said that the decision must be executed immediately as the Constitution provides and that Balla can no longer continue the function. Seiti is the mother of Rei Mata, who punched and killed the construction businessman in Vlora, Armando Meshau, but even after this event, Seiti did not resign. The decision enters into force after publication in the official gazette. Until these moments, Balla is and should be in office," said Seiti. "Since the 21st, he could not exercise his function, despite his attempts. Every claim he has for the decision of the KPA has only one option according to the Constitution, the Strasbourg Court", said Sokol Stojani.

The details

Member Arta Mandro asked for time to compile the report and give their opinion on how this decision of the KPA affects the fate and mandate of Balla. Mandro said that justice reform should be a priority for each of the members. "There is no room for any doubt for any of the members, we are all in favor of justice reform," said Mandro. Balla claimed that he is implementing the law by remaining in office as the Constitution provides, until the election of a new president, as his mandate has ended on 18.12.2023. On May 21, the KPA imposed his 15-year exclusion from the justice system, overturning a first-instance decision, the KPK, which ended his trial without a verdict. According to the decision of the KPA, Balla does not have the right to be appointed a judge or prosecutor of any level, member of the High Judicial Council or the High Prosecution Council, High Inspector of Justice or General Prosecutor, for a period 15 years old. Alfred Balla underwent the transitional reassessment process due to his work as a legal assistant in the Supreme Court until July 31, 2017, which was determined by the legislation on the vetting of magistrates. In the KPK, the body assessed in the majority that Balla had lost his status as a magistrate after he was dismissed by the head of the Supreme Court in July 2017 and closed his process without a final decision. The Public Commissioner, Florian Ballhysa, appealed the decision of the KPK to the College, requesting the imposition of a 15-year sanction, which was considered fair by the College.
