The Democratic Party has accused the Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, of violating the law during the reconstruction process.
In a press statement, DP spokeswoman Ina Zhupa stated that Veliaj has reconstructed the apartment of a person who owns several houses. She added that the law prohibits the reconstruction of the apartments of those who own more than one property.
“A few weeks ago, Erion Veliaj himself was here to inaugurate the start of reconstruction. He did this, even though he knows that the law forbids it when a person owns more than 1 apartment.
The law prohibits the Municipality from paying for the reconstruction of the apartments of those who have more than one property, but Erion Veliaj has violated this law for personal party interests.
The documents prove that Erion Veliaj is rebuilding a one-storey building for someone who also has a 3-storey house, nearby, an apartment on “Qemal Stafa” street in Tirana and two other properties.”
Zhupa added that Veliaj is abusing his duty in light of the upcoming general elections.
