The Public Commissioner has accepted the request of the International Monitoring Organization for the appeal of the decision for the confirmation in office of the Prosecutor Lindita Ziguri.
On January 12, 2021, the KPC confirmed in office the Prosecutor of Tirana, Lindita Ziguri, but the IOM did not agree with this decision and made a request to the Public Commissioner to appeal the decision. This request was accepted by the Public Commissioner.
The Public Commissioner, within the legal deadline, filed an appeal with the Special Appellate Panel, at the Constitutional Court, against decision no. 332, dated 12.1.2021, of the Independent Qualification Commission, for the subject of re-evaluation, Mrs. Lindita Male (Ziguri), with a prosecutorial function of the Prosecution at the Court of First Instance, Tirana.
The Public Commissioner, based on his constitutional and legal competence, in the evaluation of the recommendation of the International Monitoring Operation (IOM) ascertains that, from the review of the decision no. 332, dated 12.1.2021, of the Independent Qualification Commission and its accompanying acts, such legal and factual circumstances appear, which make the decision in its entirety vulnerable.
The Public Commissioner requests that the reasons for the appeal be considered by the Special Appellate Panel and, after the Panel has conducted a full investigation and evaluation of the results of the administrative investigation for the subject of the re-evaluation, to decide, alternatively, leaving in force the decision no. 332, dated 12.1.2021, of the Independent Qualification Commission or its amendment.
Based on point 1, article 16, of the regulation of the Institution of Public Commissioners, the complaint together with the recommendation of the IOM have been published on the official website of this institution.
The Institution of Public Commissioners has been established and functions on the basis of Article 179 / b and the annex of the Constitution of the Republic of Albania, and law no. 84/2016, "On the transitional re-evaluation of judges and prosecutors in the Republic of Albania."
