The parents of a 13-year-old victim of gang rape in Kavaja became known to public yesterday after they were shown in a video posted by Albanian Premier Edi Rama. The publication of the video with the girl’s parents caused a wave of political accusations and from public persons.
Former minister of justice Ylli Manjani condemned such an abnormal act from Rama.
“The parents of the teenager girl in Kavaja did not have trust in anyone and that’s why they did not make a denouncement to protect their children. Today, post-trauma, it doesn’t matter anymore to them who they show in public with, be it (minister) Spiropali or Rama. The State, when needed, was nowhere. The power is indubitably the biggest “buyer” of traumas”, Manjani writes.
“It’s OK they showed the parents, not I’m expecting to see the faces of the teachers that knew everything and did nothing; the faces of the police officers who had the duty to prevent the trauma but didn’t; the faces of all those spectators that saw the other’s misfortune as a funny show”.
