The vetting process which has been recently launched in Albania, part of a major reform in the justice system aiming at screening the moral and professional integrity of all judges and prosecutors, has led to the impeachment of several of them.
This time, it’s the Constitutional Court chief justice who may risk his post due to the discrepancies found with the declaration of his assets. According to the commission in charge of screening the judge in question, a number of assets that the judge owns are not justified by his incomes.
The verdict for the Constitutional Court chief justice will be given on 13 June, but, whatever the verdict will be, what needs to be stressed is the fact that the Constitutional Court in Albania continues to be in a state of collapse with many of its members impeached for failing to pass the vetting process. The only judge who managed to pass this process was Vitore Tusha. /ibna/
