The Minister of Interior Fatmir Xhafaj denies any responsibility of State Police in three wanted officers' escapade. In a first public reaction on this issue on Saturday he declared that they had not been subject of police surveillance.
"Three wanted police officers had not been placed under surveillance. The proofs were handed over by the Prosecution of Serious Crimes to the Internal Affairs Service (IAS) only on November 22," declared Xhafaj, while urging the journalists to ask the prosecution with whom was this operation being conducted.
He also declared that no concrete names had been defined so far in relation to the alleged information leakage that prevented the arrest of three police officers.
