Families who have received social assistance and KEMP without right will be fined for the violations committed. Many times scandals have been published about families receiving economic assistance, KEMP, or other compensation even when they do not deserve it, but have abused the documentation. There are also many other cases where employees of these institutions have violated the law and have excluded from the economic assistance scheme without the right many families in need to include in their relatives scheme. Now all these abuses will end. On Wednesday, the Council of Ministers approved the decision, which requires the creation of a special control group that will oversee in detail the provision of any economic assistance. While determining how investigations will be conducted, the ruling indicates that offenders will be punished with up to 100. 000 new lek fine. Explaining here that the fine will not only be given to the family that has received assistance without right, but also to the doctor who has given the disability status, the institutions that have stamped false documents, as well as the commission that has made the final passage. “The final report identifies all violations found by the structures responsible for the implementation of social assistance legislation on economic assistance and disability payments, relevant proposals for improving the situation and measures for responsible persons, as follows: Disciplinary measures for violations by the regional structures of social service, the structure responsible for social services in the municipality, the social administrator at the local self-government unit, family doctors and specialist doctors; Fine, from 50,000 ALL to 100. 000 new lekë, in cases when it is noticed that the violations have been committed repeatedly; Compensation for the damage from the social administrator, the family, the employee of the regional structure of the State Social Service, the family doctor ", it is stated in the decision. Meanwhile, it is announced that there will be a criminal report.
Control over misused funds
Among other things, this decision requires a detailed control over the payroll used by municipalities for the distribution of social assistance. This is because in many cases the responsible institutions do not fully distribute the defined fund, but steal it, or demand from the state budget more funds than they need, declaring a higher number of beneficiaries than they actually are. “The control group will investigate; documentation of the application procedure in the file of the recipient of economic assistance; the documentation of the beneficiary categories of economic assistance and the validity period of the benefit, the compliance of the declaration of the beneficiary family with the home visit, reflected by the social administrator in the system, families that have resulted in a false declaration and the term of their exclusion from receiving economic assistance, according to the legislation in force; the correspondence between the payroll and the treasury, the number of beneficiary families and the amounts of economic assistance benefits; the accuracy of the data in the planning of the needs for funds ”, the decision determines. This decision also includes violations committed for electricity compensation payments. Also, checks will be made for the bio-psychosocial assessment of disability, the control group at the central level controls the implementation of legislation, as in many cases this status is given to persons who have no such problem and never appear before the commissions for control over the reassessment of documentation, thus receiving a disability pension.
