Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama has announced he will release a statement regarding the killing of 25-year-old Klodian Rasha by the police today at 6pm.
In the announcement tweet, Rama did not refer to the incident as a killing, choosing instead to use the grammatically strained expression “tragic death by State Police officer.”
Rama also announced he had returned to Tirana. He had spent the past four days in the United States trying to obtain vaccines for Albania via face-to-face meetings with a number of chief company executives.
It is yet unclear how many meetings Rama has held during the four days, besides the one with the head of Pfizer.
It also remains unclear whether or not these meetings bore any tangible results, besides “opening communication channels” with Pfizer, as Rama put it. Rama did not disclose whether or not he was able to secure any vaccines, and if so, how many, at what price, and when they will be delivered.
