An incident was registered on Monday in the office of the Ministry of Justice General Secretary, Juliana Hoxha. The technical minister, Gazmend Bardhi found himself forced to call the police in order to escort Hoxha out of the office. This unusual action was based on Hoxha’s refusal to comply with the suspension order signed by the minister.
Earlier Minister Bardhi suspended Hoxha from this position arguing that she is currently running for MP under the Socialist Party logo. Meantime the Public Administration Department (PAD) overruled Bardhi’s claim stating that the minister had exceeded his competencies.
In a prompt reaction to this decision the minister warned that he would not recognize the PAD authority leaving in vigor the General Secretary Hoxha suspension.
