2008 Press Releases

Statement from the U.S. Embassy

December 23, 2008

The U.S. Embassy closely followed last night’s vote in the Albanian Parliament that passed the Lustration Law by a simple majority.  We are deeply concerned.  This law has raised serious legal, governmental, and constitutional questions among Albania's international partners, including the United States.  We call on the Government of Albania to take immediate steps in consultation with national and international experts to ensure that this law would meet international standards.
