In a reaction on Twitter, the American ambassador Yuri Kim congratulated SPAK for the work done so far, which seems to refer to the news published yesterday, that for 8 months it has been investigating the socialist MP Ervin Bushati.
“The ongoing SPAK investigations and indictments are encouraging – a clear sign that the SPAK is moving forward step by step to fight corruption and organized crime. Stay on this line, keep being tough. Keep doing your important work. “The US is in support of Justice Reform!” Kim wrote in her post.
The Special Anti-Corruption Prosecution SPAK confirmed to the Democratic Party that the chairman of the SP for Tirana, Ervin Bushati, is under investigation for two criminal offenses related to non-declaration of assets.
DP demanded transparency a week ago through a letter from Secretary General Gazment Bardhi, if SPAK has registered criminal proceedings against SP MP, Ervin Bushati.
He has been charged with concealment of property, non-declaration of assets and forgery of documents. In response to this request, SPAK has notified the Democratic Party that on 12.03.2020, has registered criminal proceedings no. 93/2020 for the criminal offenses of concealment and non-declaration of property and falsification of documents.
The criminal proceedings are in the investigation phase and are being followed for 8 months by the SPAK prosecutor Doloreza Musabelliu. DP has filed the report since October 2018 and the case was transferred from the Tirana Prosecutor’s Office to the SPAK, after the establishment of this prosecution. It is about not declaring 7 real estates in the name of Ervin Bushati, including more than 3100 square meters of land in Tirana, Qerret and Saranda.
Specifically, it turns out that he did not declare the immovable property as follows:
A property with an area of 938 m2 of land, in Tirana, registered on 21.04.2017; A property with an area of 600 m2 of land, with a construction area of 327 m2, in Tirana, registered on 21.04.2017; A property with an area of 938 m2 of land, in Tirana, registered on 25.07.2014.
