Luan Daci Sentenced to 12 Months Probation

The Special Prosecution Office Against Corruption has requested one year in prison for a member of the Special Appeals Chamber, Luan Daci. The Court sentenced him to six months in prison, converted into 12 months probation.

Daci is accused of forging documents and hiding his past. He was fired in 1997 because he kept secret a decision regarding a pyramid scheme for about 6 months and organized a strike in the court premises of Tirana.

In the discussions in the HCJ, the Minister of Justice at that time, Thimjo Kondi stated that:

Luan Daci has taken a court decision to terminate the activity of the “Xhaferri” foundation, on April 30, 1996, and has kept the file in a drawer until October 2, 1996. Regardless of whether or not there is a criminal offence as a judge, you should not keep secret the documents on such an important issue, such as the one that erupted later, that the former Xhaferri foundation was a pyramid scheme. And this is considered a serious violation, at least for work discipline. “

Daci was reported to SPAK by the former member of the High Prosecution Council, Besnik Cani. Former prosecutor Cani accuses Daci of hiding the HCJ decision to remove him from office for violating the law and incompetence.

On July 24 of this year, the SPAK formally charged him.

Daci claims he resigned and was not fired and said he will appeal the sentence. After the hearing, Daci said, “I have not forged any document in all my life.”
