A group of Albanian prisoners from La Spezia prison asked Premier Edi Rama for extradition to Albania.
In the letter sent to the Albanian Prime Minister and published by Shqiptarja.com, it is specified that the request was made because it is difficult for their families to cover the costs foreseen by Italian prisons; furthermore, an eventual extradition to Albania would allow them to meet families, which is impossible in Italy.
In addition, in the letter, the group of detainees underlines how these requests have already been submitted to the Albanian embassy in Italy, without the latter taking them into consideration.
"Dear Prime Minister of the Republic of Albania, Mr. Edi Rama
First of all, we wish you and your family good health. We are a group of Albanian prisoners from La Spezia prison in Italy. We would like to congratulate you for having sent a team of doctors and specialists to help Italy. We small people have great strength.
Condemned by Italian justice, we are suffering, rightly or unjustly, the sentence not twice as much but ten times more than its size due to the absence of meetings with our families that have great importance for us and that make sacrifices to keep us economically and morally.
We are suffering not only from the global crisis of COVID-19 but also from the requests for extradition, which the Euro-Albanian treaties provide, repeatedly sent and ignored over the years by the Albanian embassy in Italy. We are not asking you for an amnesty or a reduction of the sentence, but for some rights from members of the human race and not to feel abandoned by our great mother, Albania. We just have to hope.
We wish you good work and good health, as well as to all Albanians. Please, let us feel part of the great mother Albania."- reads the letter sent by the group of prisoners of the La Spezia prison.
