VOA's Menanda Zaimi has commented on a decree issued by US President Joe Biden two days ago to block assets and suspend the entry into the United States of individuals contributing to the destabilization of the Western Balkans, where Albania was included for the first time.
Zaimi, in a Skype connection from Washington, told the MCN news studio that the order was aimed at preventing corruption at home and abroad, and that the origins of this order date back to 2001 by George W Bush.
"Through a Biden memorandum, he said that the administration will draw attention to good governance, to prevent corruption at home and abroad. The order is a continuation of the 2001 order. The initial order signed at the time by George W Bush came as a result of threats to stability in the region. The new order already includes Albania and those who are directly or indirectly involved in undermining democratic processes in major acts of corruption and not only officials will be subject to this order. As Blinken said, the inclusion of Albania in this order is to guarantee a greater efficiency in the fight against corruption ", said Zaimi.
Asked if there are US persons on the list who will be declared non grata, Zaimi stated that, “The White House says that they will continue the list of individuals subject to this order. Practically with the signing of this order the legal bases for action have been laid. As Biden said, concrete actions are expected but it remains to be seen if the list will be updated. The subject of the order will not be related only to officials. These persons who are considered subject to this law, all these properties will be blocked will not be allowed to be sold or transferred. Properties may also be in the possession of US citizens. "We will work to identify which have a suspicious source", said Zaimi.
In the end Zaimi said that the order will be implemented only within the US, but as she stressed we must not forget that the potential implications of this order means that the financial system will no longer serve as a haven for this money of dubious origin.
