The bloodshed is not forgotten, but minimized

The bloodshed is not forgotten, but minimized

For several years, no new case of blood feud has been registered in the Tropoja area, but the attention of the institutions to this phenomenon is high, as some families, including school-age children, continue to be trapped by blood feuds. Local government leaders they say to "Sot" newspaper, that in cooperation with the blood reconciliation association, they have continuously worked in this direction by sensitizing the opinion, even with this method there have been positive results, but we still have cases of families being tested due to old events and already known, the leaders of the blood reconciliation association in Tropoja, an association which has extended its activity to the region of Gjakova and beyond.

A few months ago, two families that had been at enmity with each other for years reconciled, in the area of ??Nikaj-Merturi, families that belonged to the villages of Paç and Aprripë. The decrease in the number of trapped families remains an indicator of the work done by the community as well. police forces and state structures and not only in Tropoja, but also in the other 3 districts of the Kukës district, where there are still families trapped in Has and one in Kukës. Concerns in the Tropoja district are the documented cases of blood feuds where we have identified about 120 families, say the leaders of the association. We are working with these families in cooperation with the local government with the aim of final reconciliation, since the causes are mainly disputes over ownership, or temporary disputes that can be resolved through reconciliation between families. In a tribal society, as northern Albania has been organized for centuries, where self-judgment has ruled and still rules more than justice, where blood feud is unfortunately still an unhealed wound, in these tribes, where a code has ruled and acted for centuries customary by the name of canon, where an act of revenge committed by the injured party is the ultimate sanction to punish a wrongdoer, to establish and maintain social order in these legions, it is significant the trial we are taking to throw light on the organization of the tribe according to the canon. "The population of this area," writes Japanese professor Kazuhiko, "has preserved tribal structures based on family, brotherhood, and clan.

The highlands of northern Albania, he continues, are subject to the customary tribal code called the canon." And researching and studying the canon of Lekë Dukagjin, collected by Father Shtjefën Gjeçovi, and published after his death, in 1933, it is concluded that it (the canon) has exercised its legal power for centuries in the "Northern Highlands". Undoubtedly, this customary code should be studied and analyzed by experts in this field, even today, to draw conclusions about the perfection of its implementation. him, since Albanians in this transition period know little about the law and the state, and the enforcers of the law do not sufficiently perform the sacred duty of justice, spreading everywhere the incorrect slogan that "there is no state", "we cannot make a state ", that almost all of these have a painful human bill with murders for blood feuds, torture, children who do not go to school, etc.

In conclusion, we can quote that the inhabitants of these parts refer to the canon as a source of justice, which enables them social order, peace and freedom of living, because as we mentioned somewhere above, there are still tribal societies called houses-brotherhood- tribe We think that these judgments are valid to analyze the canon, in the phenomena that are still encountered in northern Albania, as a result of the non-implementation of the law, but surprisingly in many cases not even the canon, because there are many articles that define how blood is reconciled, non-violation of women, children, forgiveness of blood, etc., etc. And in the absence of the factors, some of which we cited above, canonical power is still exercised today instead of state power, at the beginning of the twenty-first century of the third millennium.
