    TIRANA, Feb 25 (ATA) - Opposition leader Sali Berisha has reacted against the telephone conversation of the Albanian prime minister Fatos Nano with Romano Prodi, Italian prime minister and Franz Vranitzky, former Austrian Chancellor.

    But the letter the former Austrian chancellor has sent to the latter has shown that the cabinet of the prime minister has not changed the content of conversation with Vranitzky.

    This is the topic highlighted by today's newspapers.

    The former Austrian chancellor and the mediator to the Albanian crisis a year ago, Franz Vranitzky has sent on Saturday a letter to the DP leader Sali Berisha, the daily Koha Jone says adding that this was confirmed by the OSCE press office in Tirana.

    "I am sure, dear Mr. Berisha, that you can guess that I and the others are very disappointed for the fact that your party has not assume its formal political role in the Albanian parliament," Vranitzky said to Berisha.

    Gazeta Shqiptare reports that Vranitzky asked Berisha that the DP return to parliament and give its contribution to restore order in Albania.

    "Berisha's claim is not true," is the title of the article carried by the daily Zeri i Popullit obtained by the ATA. It says that "because of misinterpretation and claims of the DP at some European chancelleries including the OSCE,

    the office of Vranitzky has sent to the Albanian prime minister's cabinet the full correspondence between the DP and Vranitzky.

    Dita Informacion reports on this topic under the title "Vranitzky to Berisha: I am disappointed".

    Rilindja Demokratike upholds its claims saying "Vranitzky;

    Nano has cheated," and the daily Albania says "Vranitzky: Nano cheats." Today's press highlights the statement of the European Union presidency on Shkoder events.

    The E.U. presidency reacted immediately on Tuesday through a statement issued by the current president of the European Union and minister of State at the United Kingdom Tony Lloyd on events in Shkoder on February 22 and the latest decision of the DP national council to delay return to parliament until a future meeting, the daily Koha Jone says.

    "Outbreak of violence makes the return of the Democratic party to Albanian parliament and its participation in the parliamentary constitutional commission very important," the daily quotes the statement as saying.

    Gazeta Shqiptare says that "Berisha has failed to keep the promise he gave to the European troika" Lloyd warned adding that the DP should return as soon as possible in the legislative body.

    Zeri i Popullit says referring to this statement that "it is unacceptable that Berisha continues to make backward steps".

    The daily Shekulli under the title "Berisha, violates promise given to Troika" says that "the DP should be included in the democratisation process underway."

    Wednesday's papers report on the approval of the anticrime package by Albanian parliament.

    Since today the Albanian police can shoot on sight when seeing that their lives or of any other is risked. Koha Jone says that this was the main law from the anticrime package, adopted by Albanian parliament last night.

    Gazeta Shqiptare says that parliament calls in chorus: "The Constitutional Court should urgently carry out rotation". It says that Gjinushi, Dokle, Abdiu and Majko have not hesitated to be categorical in their discussions and decisions.

    "The law on the use of fire arms passed" is the title of an article in Zeri i Popullit on the beginning of the approval of the anti-crime package in Parliament yesterday. It says that Gjinushi said yesterday that "the Constitutional Court should be reorganised and there is no compromise with the law".

    Dita Informacion says that Parliament suspends the Constitutional Court. Now this court cannot take decisions, which has been opposed only by Ngjela.

    Shekulli says that parliament has asked that Rustem Gjata steps down.

    Rilindja Demokratike says that now there is no more Constitutional Court in Albania while newspaper Albania cites Gjata as saying:"The court does not depend on Gjinushi". /s.sh/lm/

    [02] Parliament passes anticrime law package

    TIRANE, Feb 24 (ATA)-By K. Kostreci, Albanian parliament late on Tuesday passed four anticrime laws, which aim to provide the order forces with more legal power in their acts.

    The law package was urgently examined and passed by parliament, also considering the Shkoder event.

    Parliament adopted the laws on the use of fire weapons, the code of police ethic, special and rapid intervention forces, and that on criminal police.

    Parliament mostly debated the law on the use of fire weapons. The deputies asked that the cases when the order police shoot wrongdoers be defined better. For this reason several changes were made to an article of this law, clearly determining the cases of attack by the order police.

    Interior Minister Neritan Ceka said that the draft laws had also been improved after consultations with the MAPE experts and foreign lawyers at the Interior Ministry.

    He stressed that this package is indispensable, also considering the latest events. /a.ke/das/lm/

    SHKODER, Feb 25 (ATA)-By M. Malja, Daan Everts, OSCE ambassador in Tirane, had a working visit to Shkoder city on Tuesday afternoon.

    He first visited public institutions, affected by the wave of looting, burning and destruction, familiarising himself with the damages caused to this city on Sunday after an attack by criminals.

    Later, in the OSCE regional office in Shkoder, he received representatives of three religious communities who described the situation in the city.

    Everts also met with local government leaders, governor Ali Lacej, Mayor Bahri Borici and District Council Chairman Lorenc Mosi.

    Local government leaders asked Everts that the international community focuses its attention on Shkoder, one of the country's less developed regions both during communist regime and the Democratic Party's governing.

    Everts told local government leaders that foreign donors have many projects for Albania's development, especially the city of Shkoder. But what is more important, he said, is restoration of order and peace at home.

    He said that MAPE experts will help restructure police forces in Shkoder, also providing them with logistic equipment.

    During his stay in Shkoder Everts also met with political party leaders. The meeting was held behind closed doors. /s.s/das/lm/

    TIRANE, Feb 25 (ATA)-By A.Simoni, The Union for Democracy coalition parties, headed by the Democratic party of former president Sali Berisha, on Wednesday, recognised the parliament's constitution drafting commission, as an "indispensable element to prepare the draft".

    Zef Bushati, chairman of the Christian-Democratic party, confirmed this, on behalf of the Union for Democracy grouping, at a meeting of the commission on Wednesday.

    However, the opposition grouping, still does not take part in the commission's proceedings; On Wednesday it sent a letter to the commission saying that, "positively responding to the European Troika recommendations, it will decide to take part in the commission after achieving an inter- party consensus at a round table called by the grouping and whose date will be set after preliminary consultations".

    At this round table the Union for Democracy will put forward its remarks as regards procedures of the commission's election and composition, as, according to Bushati, it has not been allowed by the majority to make these remarks in parliament.

    "We have often called on you to make these remarks in the commission, but you have always refused," replied Sabri Godo, co-chairman of the commission.

    The commission continued proceedings, while Bushati left; but the fundamental issues of the draft-constitution were decided to be discussed at Friday's meeting, so that the commissioners are better prepared. /s.s/das/lm/

    [11] DP turns a deaf ear to EU suggestions, continues road protests

    TIRANA, Feb 25 (ATA) - Unity for Democracy political grouping held a protest rally on Wednesday in the Skenderbej Square though it had not gained any permission by the police for the venue.

    He called on Tirana citizens and whole Albania to launch new elections this spring and set up a new care taker government.

    "We do not abandon our requests. The scenarios of the Albanian prime minister Fatos Nano to fight the opposition are doomed to fail. We will take to the streets until we fulfil our intention - toppling the present government," Berisha said.

    Other orators of the Unity for Democracy shared the same views.

    In a letter to Sali Berisha on Tuesday the former Austrian chancellor Franz Vranitzky said that he was disappointed for the fact that the DP had not yet taken up its formal political function in the Albanian parliament and "further more you have said that you will work to topple as soon as possible the new parliament and the ruling government."

    The European Union shared the same view saying that the fact that Berisha had failed to keep the promise to the European troika to return to parliament was unacceptable and called on the opposition to be integrated as soon as possible in a democratic process and contribute to Albania's reconstruction. das/ak/

    TIRANA, Feb. 25 (ATA) - By Keida Kostreci: The Albanian Parliament approved on Wednesday midday two of the draft-laws of the anti-crime package, that of "On the code of police ethics," and "On special and rapid intervention forces."

    The law "On the code of police ethic" sanctions the respect of the personality of the persons escorted, detained or arrested by police forces.

    "For the first time in a code it is defined the right of police officers not to obey the orders of their superiors when they run contrary to laws in force, as well as the obligation of any police officer to penally or civilly respond for any damage caused to the public," Luan Hajdaraga, chairman of parliamentary commission of order and SHIK, said during the plenary sitting.

    Meanwhile, with regard to the draft-law "On special and rapid intervention forces," Hajdaraga said that it provides high efficacy of these forces in the fight against crime and the invulnerability of freedoms and rights of citizen.

    The special forces, according to the law, will be part of the structure of the General Police Directorate in the Interior Ministry.

    The law guarantees that the members of these units keep the secrecy of their identity when on duty and after.

    "In this declaration, I have really blamed the government for its indolence in restoration of order in Shkoder, but on the other hand I have supported it and the law. It is not the first time I ask such thing, there are six months I have insisted in the reorganization of the Shkoder police, 20% of which is contrabandist," said Zefi.

    "After we left the television, I went to my house escorted by the bandit and by 22:10 they fled to loot the banks and other institutions.

    TIRANA, Feb. 25 (ATA) - By A. Simoni: The Secretary General of the Democratic Alliance Party (DAP), called on the Interior Minister, Neritan Ceka to be acute when taking decisions and speak less, and the Democratic Alliance will support him.

    Pollo accused the Albanian government and police of carrying a new attack against the opposition, because as he said, right after the rally, held by the Union for Democracy in the Scanderbeg square (although without the police approval,) several DP supporters were arrested.

    "Also, the request to lift the immunity of DP deputy Azem Hajdari is another blow to the opposition, despite the result of today's parliamentary sitting, which will decide on this, said Pollo.

    Prodi, in the telephone conversation on Monday, voiced his and the Italian government support for the Albanian government and Premier Fatos Nano.
