U.S. Embassy Statement

U.S. Embassy Tirana

The United States Embassy welcomes the decision of the Albanian Parliament to adopt the first implementing law of judicial reform.  This important law will begin the process for vetting prosecutors and judges.  We applaud those Members of Parliament who voted in favor of this important step in carrying out the constitutional amendments passed unanimously on July 22.  We look forward to the full and timely approval of the remaining implementing laws for this critical reform which enjoys the support of the overwhelming majority of Albanians.
