Berisha: We will not restore the death penalty
Prime Minister Sali Berisha announced bringing the Assembly legislative package envisaging stricter Criminal Code.
"There will be much more stringent penalties for domestic violence, the killing of women, violence against children, the murder of police officers and so on blood feuds," said the head of the Government at the next meeting with his ministers."Albania is a member of the Council of Europe and the abolition of the death penalty is a condition for membership in this institution. In the U.S., a number of countries have abolished this punishment, because they have not seen any impact on reducing crime. We should be objectiveand can not do steps that bring us out of the Council of Europe ", said the Prime Minister.
During his speech, Berisha accused those who claim that this event has come to an end state, but show mlllef or ignorance, because according to statistics, Albania results in a state with a high degree of detection and punishment of crime.
