The Tirana University rector Mynyr Koni faced the judges on Tuesday in quality of witness in the trial against Emiljano Shullazi. During his testimony Koni informed the judges that he had been stopped in the street by a black vehicle and had been invited inside by those on board.
“They called me from a black car and told me to get inside. Then I was clearly and directly asked to relinquish from running for the position of rector. After stepping down I got immediately in touch with former-rector Dhori Kule informing him about everything that just happened,” declared Koni.
However Koni failed to identify Shullazi as one of the persons that intimidated him inside the black vehicle. In response to the defendant’s direct question if he was one of them Koni said that he had seen Shullazi’s face on TV so many times thus it was impossible to be identify him beyond any shadow of doubt.
