"I learned about the intimidation on Rector Koni from a public statement made by former-PM Berisha. I do not understand why he has not yet been subpoenaed in quality of witness. This way of doing clearly indicates the prosecutions involves in politics," said Tahiri.
Earlier even the State Police General Director Haki Çako testified in front of the judges in Shullazi's trial. The Tirana University rector, Mynyr Koni, professors Klodeta Dibra, Shezai Rrokaj and Majlinda Keta have also subpoenaed in quality of VIP witnesses in this trial
