After 19 months of checks and a four-hour hearing, the vetting commission - which oversees the Albanian judicial system - today announced the dismissal of Fatmira Hajdari.
Hajdari is the spouse of Azem Hajdari, one of the leaders of the student movement of the 90s and a deputy of the PD of the first hour, as well as mother of the current deputy Rudina Hajdari.
The Court of Appeal judge was dismissed - as reported by Shqiptarja.com - because she failed to justify a $ 470.000 estate, as well as for hiding the fact that the United States had denied her entry visa in the country in the past.
With today's decision, the Independent Qualifications Commission - the first degree of the vetting - dismissed Fatmira Hajdari from the Albanian judicial system. Hajdari herself has the right to appeal to the Special College of Appeal.
The career of Fatmira Hajdari
Fatmira Hajdari has behind him a twenty-year career in the Albanian judicial system, which began in 2000 as a judge of the Tirana court. In 2013, however, she was appointed judge of the Court of Appeal of Tirana by the then President of the Republic Bujar Nishani.
The qualifications and the way in which Fatmira Hajdari managed to enter Albanian justice still remain a mystery: despite this, in the course of her career she has had important cases of corruption and crime in her hands, which concerned politicians, ex ministers, ex prime ministers and important members of organized crime.
In 2009 he freed Abren Isufaj from prison, also known as Ben Qimja, one of the "bosses" of the city of Fier accused of the murder of the entrepreneur Piro Koçiu. In 2014, Qimja himself was arrested again by INTERPOL in Rome for being part of a criminal organization.
Similarly, she was part of the judicial court which in 2014 freed from prison in Gjin Nika, accused of several important crimes in Tirana and labeled by the Procuratorate as a dangerous person. A few months after being released, Nika was executed in a mafia attack.
Hajdari herself was accused in 2015 by the former president of the Albanian Islamic Community, Skender Bruçaj, of having torn - with an unfair and openly contrary to the law court verdict - several secular properties from the hands of the same community.
Lastly, Fatmira Hajdari was part of the judicial court of the "CEZ" case, in which former Prime Minister Sali Berisha was accused - along with a group of his former ministers and leaders - of having privatized today's national electricity company " OSHEE ", with an estimated damage of 414 million euros. However, in this case Hajdari was removed from the Court for this case following Parliament's request that came about because of the friendship between the Hajdari family and the Berisha family.
