These special sections were decided to be created in 2018 by former Attorney General Arta Marku and former Interior Minister Xhafaj.
Marku clarified, then, that the sections would investigate the property of persons under investigation and or convicted by a final decision.
But, as we have argued before, this organization deviates from the constitutional provisions for the prosecution and creates problems in the investigation of crime and corruption.
According to the Constitution, the functions to be performed by these sections should be performed by the Special Prosecutor’s Office against Crime and Corruption, (SPAK), and the Bureau of Investigation.
In 2018, SPAK and BKH were not established and the establishment of this other section could be justified, but today they are a parallel structure that seeks to exercise some of the powers that the Constitution gives to SPAK.
