Deputy Chairman of Socialist Movement for Integration (LSI) Petrit Vasili commented Premier Edi Rama’s visit to Berat, recalling the public declarations Rama made four years ago, calling on the police effectives to secure votes for the Socialist Party. Vasili said Rama’s call was a Constitutional offense, adding that the state police heads pass the vetting process easily, despite having been involved in crime and corruption.
"This is zero vetting. The opposition, after the victory of April 25, will abrogate this Vetting Law, will repeal it, will eradicate such a dirty and ugly law, which is a law that requires only the transformation of the police into political police, soldiers of Edi Rama instead of soldiers of the law, or soldiers of the ordinary citizen. It is not a law that guarantees security, to show that the law is on the side of the citizen and not on the side of the trafficker, the villain and the criminals. Therefore, we will repeal this law and make a law that will require an extraordinary purity for all police chiefs because the people rightly say “the fish stinks from the head down”, and we will never allow incriminated people to continue to command the State Police," Vasili said.
