Luan Daci Vows to Appeal Prison Sentence

The former member of the Special Appellate Panel, Luan Daci stated that he will not leave his job despite the fact that the Special Appeal found him guilty of forging documents.

In a reaction to reporters, Daci considered the court’s decision an organized coup and added that he would appeal it to the Supreme Court.

“Within two days I will make a recourse, an openly legal decision. It does not happen anywhere in the world. No, I will not leave the KPA. Let the law say whatever it wants, I have 100 votes from Parliament.”

The Special Court of Appeals sentenced former KPA member Daci to six months in prison on March 8 for forging and concealing application documents. The Special Prosecution requested one year in prison for Daci.

According to the Criminal Code,  this criminal offense is punishable by up to three years in prison.

Luan Daci was fired in 1997 for keeping secret a decision regarding a pyramid scheme for about six months, as well as organizing a strike in the premises of the Tirana court.

But while applying to be part of the KPA, in an interview with the ad hoc Parliamentary Committee, Daci hid his dismissal by claiming he had resigned.

Following the investigation, the SPAK  requested the suspension of his duties and accused Daci of falsifying documents. He was suspended from work, but then the Special Court of Appeal ruled his reinstatement.

After that, the Special Appellate Panel decided to suspend him from office until the end of the process.
