Beautiful amnesty with the shopkeeper!

Beautiful amnesty with the shopkeeper!

Criminal amnesty is essentially a humane act through which society gives an opportunity to those who have erred to take advantage of the law to reduce part of their sentence. Every state gives amnesty, not just in a democratic system, but also in a dictatorship. Amnesty is not equal to recycling in society those who have committed crimes, nor is it intended to rehabilitate individuals with serious criminal records. It is not equal to charity, nor Christian mercy. The amnesty law affirms, but also strongly denies, who should benefit from a reduced sentence, who will go home and what are the criteria they must meet. Amnesty is not equal freedom for all. On the contrary, it is carried out through legal filters, nominally analyzing all those who meet the conditions and have guarantees that they will not turn into recidivists or serial criminals tomorrow in freedom. The offenses for serious crimes, life sentences and above all those involved in serious corruption are categorically excluded. And it is known that corruption was committed by those who have the means, who own firms and seals, tenders or have public funds in their hands. In short, the state officials without excluding those who put the business in function of the goals, not to gain wealth, but to extort the state. They have benefited by using power or having a connection with this power. In this sense, state officials who have violated the law do not benefit from the amnesty law. We are a small country and of course there cannot be even deputies who have a connection or relationship with individuals with precedents who for one or several reasons are in prison. Here they are not divided into MPs of the majority and the opposition. It is precisely around this motive that the interests of individual MPs are clashing, but also on behalf of the parties, even though it was negotiated between the MPs of the majority and the opposition on Thursday, no agreement was found to reach a consensus and the amnesty law was withdrawn at the last moment. Was this a failure of the majority? Even so, it can be considered because a great compromise was not strongly invested in, as it happened years ago when 140 deputies were forced to vote to approve the justice reform. This achievement was due to American pressure and the strong influence of Ambassador Donald Lu. The negotiations this time were made in Albania in a chaotic situation when, unfortunately, there are many decision-making centers in the opposition and not a unified position, even a refractory one. When a part of the opposition declares itself, lightning falls from the wild sky of the other part and they are immediately labeled traitors. There are many factors that made it impossible to reach a compromise. In addition to the lack of aggressive investment by the majority to get along with the moderate opposition, official parts of the DP led by Lulzim Basha and the parties beyond "Reestablishment" led by Berisha. The votes of the deputies are not cast like going hunting waiting for the game to come out to shoot the couple. This requires dialogue and, of course, concessions without violating the principles and norms that sustain democracy. Closer to the compromise in reaching the agreement on the amnesty in reality were the deputies of the official DP. Of course, even they could not vote at all. They asked for concessions. It was promised but in the end it failed. In reality, amnesty is not an exclusive right of the government, nor is it any developmental program for politics of the day and the only beneficiary is the majority. It is a decision that belongs to everyone, that ultimately the beneficiaries are Albanian citizens, which does not automatically translate into votes for one or the other party. Amnesty could reach a major compromise. This is where the shopping started. Such was the name of the amendment of the socialists, which was interpreted as an attempt to save government officials. And they deepened when each party entered into pre-made discussions on how to earn more. No one gave a damn about those who are in jail or under investigation. Negotiations started to benefit specific individuals. How to save the author of Babale, Salianji?! A specific amendment was also made for that. Then the protesters of all years, not those who take to the streets and demand more rights, but those who arm themselves with molotov cocktails and destroy the common property. The amnesty was considered by the political parties as a lucky chance. The deputy of "Reestablishment", which is a post holder in this grouping, Edmond Spaho stated that we would vote if the majority agreed to give us the co-chairman of the electoral reform. So give me all to drop some crumbs. Dirtier and more open bargains according to the principle of trafficker, give me give can not be found anywhere. Not only that. The parties yes. Individual MPs, those who work as a realtor or agent, as well as lawyers and brokers, each sought their own benefits. In this great bargain, the losers are those who benefit from the amnesty, who have wasted the gaze of the fathers of the nation, our MPs, since representatives turned into traders. It is fixed to be said and accepted as an axiom: Beautiful amnesty with a shopkeeper!
