In charge of US Labor in Albania, Leyla Moses-Ones has delivered important messages today about the political situation but not only in Albania.
Moses-Ones participated in the conference “Economic Empowerment of People with Disabilities” of the Albanian Foundation for the Rights of People with Disabilities.
The diplomat emphasized the law, saying that the gap must be bridged between what is written on paper and what actually exists.
“Firstly, i want to point out the Government of Albania to ensure that the appropriate legislation is written and enforceable. Protecting the rights of people with disabilities is an effort that should transcend party lines and unite officials in a common cause.
Secondly, I urge you as individuals to ensure that people with disabilities are given the same opportunities at work or at leisure – like the rest of society.
Be proactive – consider how to make your businesses and workplaces more accessible to people with disabilities.
Think about how your hiring practices can be adapted to give people with disabilities equal employment opportunities and equal opportunities to be trained, to learn and to contribute to Albania’s progress ”, concluded Leyla Moses-Ones./abcnews.al
In a statement to the media, Berisha dropped serious accusations against the head of the KLP Gent Ibrahimi and the head of the KED, Ardian Dvorani.
According to Berisha, they are serving to the government to seize the justice system.
Excerpts from Berisha’s speech:
I want to emphasize that media have an important role to play, because had rightly curved more than anything else in these 4 years at least 20 times more judicial reform than EU integration.
I only ask one question to Albanian and to the foreign in total of 320 judges, the one who violated the SP or DP meetings is just one, Ardian Dvorani mobster at SP meetings.
This militant judge has been blocking reforms for 2 years, integration for 2 years .Who can vote for a country that has no Supreme and Constitutional Courts?
So they held him hostage for two years until they brought Dvorani to be a leadership.
Is there a bigger insult for a country and what reform is it when the constitution defines taxation than any place for a constitutional court will be filled by having candidates giving them choices?
What the Capo Mafia does that turns the KED into a real cave?
Brings instead of 12 candidacies 4 and divides them 3 by 3 by repeating them in lists. Mechanization was just one of finding slaves who could obey us.
I have heard in the media but maybe also from the party that say that the President will apprehend the court that it is itself at trial.
Venice in the last opinion expresses the opposite.
Parliament will do everything in its power to bring its position to justice./abcnews.al
