    [06] PRESS RELEASE OF ALBANIAN GOVERNMENT ON A NUMBER OF DIPLOMATIC AND SERVICE PASSPORTS CONSIDERED INVALID

    TIRANA, MARCH 19 (ATA) - In the course of the wave of destructions and plundering, the central store of the Interior Ministry was stormed recently. It had contingents of new unused Albanian diplomatic and service passports. Some people, besides damage, have stolen a number of such unfilled passports, with the aim of using them illegally.

    The Albanian Government has analysed the situation immediately, and has defined exactly the number of the stolen passports, with their detailed information. All the stolen diplomatic and service passports are declared invalid beginning with March 18, 1997.

    A legal usage of these stolen passports, although they are original documents, is completely impossible because of the specific character and content of this document. These passports as a document, and due to the process of filling, have a number of high security elements, and are secretly coded. Consequently, their falsification is impossible and any authority which controls them, Albanian or foreign, can easily find out that these passports are from the stolen contingent.

    Proceeding from the fact that the aim of using these passsports is travelling to other countries, the Albanian Government has informed since March 18 the respective authorities in all the countries of the world, first of all the neighbouring countries, those of Europe and the U.S., that these stolen documents are declared invalid, and has told them of all the security elements of these passports. Albanian authorities have immedialtely started cooperation with the neighbouring countries and all other countries, adopting full measures to block these passports and to put before legal responsibility all the people caught with these passports in the border points of Albania and other countries.

    In the mean time, the Albanian Government has suspended the issuing of new diplomatic and service passports.

    The government calls on all Albanian citizens that if they have the chance to have such diplomatic and service passports of the Republic of Albania, to hand them in immediately in the police commissariats. xh
