    He voiced Belgian all-round support for Albania and said that soon his government will start to deliver the aid it promised for Albania in the Donors' Conference of Brussels.

    Prime Minister Dehan stressed the importance of the adoption of the Constitution which, among others, would help bring foreign investments to the country. He encouraged the two sides to sign, as soon as possible, the agreements on the encouragement and protection of investments, lifting of double taxation, etc, which will urge Belgian companies to be more interested to invest in Albania.

    Dehan highlighted the regional policy and supported the new spirit of good neighborliness Albania is following. "We must work, he said, to solve the question of Kosova which has become a factor for destabilization in the region and broader. We support the Albanian Government for its important initiative for the stabilization of the relations with Yugoslavia and Macedonia." Dehan confirmed his country's support for Albania not only on the bilateral level but also on that of the European Union.

    "I may admit that the Albanian Government is on the right track, and I assure you that in all your efforts you will have our support," he said.

    Minister Milo and the delegation he is leading on Friday also met with the deputy chairman of the House of Representatives of the Belgian Parliament, Van de Maylen and deputy president of Senate, Mayns.

Both sides stressed the special role of specialized financial and trade organizations and institutions to provide continuous information on the advantages of the mutual economic and trade exchanges. /s.s./s.sh./kled/xh/sh/

    [07] Event in Shkoder was premeditated - General Attorney's Office

    TIRANE, Jan 23 (ATA) - By Th Thanasi: The investigation group of the Prosecutor's Office of Tirane dealing with the case of Shkoder recently today interrogated the two policemen who were injured in the event.

    "The inquiries confirm that the policemen have been premeditatedly shot and fortunately they were not dead," said the chief of investigation in the General Attorney's office, Agim Tirana.

    According to Mr Tirana, another element of the investigation is also the activity held in the premises of the prefecture of Shkoder. Taking into consideration the fact that the prefect of Shkoder has been terrorized, it is important that this element be brought for investigation. Nevertheless, the prefect too will be interrogated not to put him before penal responsibility but to hear him and gather supplementary information. "If elements of the penal act will be uncovered for anyone, even for deputies, the lifting of their deputy immunity will soon be demanded, to continue then with other acts determined by law," said Tirana.

    Referring to the event in Shkoder, Mr Tirana added that "it was not a spontaneous act but a very well-organized plan." Preliminary data prove of "centralized acts initiated by dangerous people," but their names cannot be made public because inquiries are going on. The information gathered so far "prove of the place where talks are made on the preliminary orientations of this event."

    Some of those who have been involved in this activity, "are also proved to be previously incriminated elements whose names will soon be made public," said Mr Tirana. kled/xh/sh/

    [11] Presence of international forces - guarantee for Kosova, RP says

    TIRANA, Jan 24 (ATA) - By Eva Allushi: Republican party backed on Saturday the request of the President of the Republic of Kosova Ibrahim Rugova for international forces in Kosova as a means to prevent a possible flare up.

    "The Balkans is near the storm; the conflict, which is breaking out in Kosova will endanger all the region," Fatmir Mediu, leader of the Republican party (RP), said after a frontal attack the Serbian forces have undertaken recently in the Skenderaj commune.

    He considered "indifferent" the stand of the Albanian government on the latest events in Kosova, where Albanian population outnumbers Serbs nine to one.

    Though he backed Greece's idea to host possible talks Nano, Milosevic, Rugova, Mediu did not accept its role as mediator in these talks.

    "Greece does not have a clear stand on Kosova," he said.

    Mediu considered as mediators the American-German and French-German initiatives.

    "We should not walk along unknown trails," he said.

    A press release issued on Friday by the Albanian Foreign Ministry officially expressed the concern on recent repression of the Serbian authorities in the commune of Skenderaj, Kosova. s.s/kled/ak/sh/

    [14] Albanian Government is open to monitoring, which must, first, come from the people - Nano

    TIRANE, Jan 24 (ATA) - By A Simoni: "From my mouth and from the executive I direct you will not hear of sentences and pardons, but only encouragement so that all opposition be integrated in the civil society," Albanian Prime Minister Fatos Nano told a news conference on Saturday.

    "The Albanian Government is open to any monitoring, but the first monitoring is that from the Albanian people who voted for us on June 29, 1997," said the Prime Minister.

    "The Government is working so that the actors and the factors that caused Albania's ruin in the past years do not influence in its further destabilization," said Nano, adding that "it is the people who lifted their political immunity last June 29, while their legal immunity is not determined by me. I will keep supporting an independent judiciary."

    "There is a part of parliamentary opposition in Albania which, instead of integrating, is boycotting and constantly continues to be very close to criminal segments of the Albanian society," said Nano.

    "Now, the efforts to overcome the crisis are in the second stage," said Nano, "which is a strong challenge for us, but the only way to bring the crises in Albania to an end and to block the factors and the actors that caused them. After hearing declarations by Mr Berisha's opposition, I think that work for the Constitution will continue with the aim of preparing a long term draft which will make Albania more European." /s.s/kled/xh/

    "A rotation, which provides constitutional protection not only for the government, but also for the opposition, can be immediately carried out even with the useful suggestions of international institutions, such as the Venezia Commission," said Nano, adding that this will influence on the legislative and the public opinion by providing the continuity of the constitutional process, which serves above all to the opposition.

    "It is not only me to solve the conflict, because there is a legal framework to unblock it," said Premier Nano. /s.s/mt/

    [16] We welcome Greek initiative on Albanian-Serb dialogue - Nano

    TIRANE, Jan 24 (ATA)-A. Simoni,

    Prime Minister Fatos Nano hailed the Greek initiative on a Milosevic- Nano-Rugova meeting, at a news briefing on Saturday.

    "We cannot but welcome any initiative which encourages dialogue, especially when it is about Kosova," said Nano.

    "I can neither neglect nor define a hierarchy of partners or factors, but I can find partnership and real possibilities which stimulate dialogue, " said Nano.

    "The Greek initiative has this orientation as well. It encourages the dialogue which began to institutionalize in Crete and I hope that even after yesterday's statements of Rugova, this initiative be one of the segments that will not let the situation under the Serb, Albanian or whose ever terrorism, Islamic or of other faiths, and be attached to the sanctions against Serbia and Milosevic; We will but be integrated in such initiatives, irrespective of their dimensions".

    "I have addressed an official letter to the NATO Secretary General, Javier Solana, who is also chairman of the Euro-Atlantic association, to sensitize the participating countries on the need and urgency of coordinating their initiatives to resolve the Kosova issue, to grant rights and status to the Albanians there as, why not, to invite these countries to a round table on the Balkans in Tirane.

    The ongoing responses have been encouraging to further our initiatives". s.s/lm

    [17] Status of civil employees to be improved

    TIRANA, Jan 24 (ATA) - By K. Kostreci: The status of civil employees will be completed with new decisions, aiming at providing a legal protection of their interests.

    "The Albanian government will examine on Monday a packet of decisions for the completion of the status of civil employees, which will be realised with the assistance of the European Union," the Minister of Institutional Reform and Relations with Parliament, Arben Imami, reported to ATA on Saturday.

    Actually, according to him, Albania is "at zero level" regarding the protection of rights of civil employees, due to lack of legislation in this field.

    Imami voiced the readiness of the Albanian government to be monitored by international bodies, like the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank (WB), and the troika of the European Parliament, regarding the implementation of the legislative reform, based on professional merits.

    According to an agreement with the European Union, the administration reform will be completed from the legislative point of view until the year 1999," said the Minister of Institutional reform. /s.s/pas/mt/

    [18] Unique front against criminality - Albanian Helsinki Committee

    TIRANA, Jan. 24 (ATA) - By A. Keko: The Albanian Helsinki Committee, (AHC), greeted Saturday the common engagement of the political parties and organizations of a wide political and social spectrum for the establishment of a unique front in the fight against criminality.

    "In front of the grave situation of order, particularly with the dramatic events in the Shkoder city, serious and immediate measures should be taken for the restoration of the state authority, an acute problem which is put forward not only for state bodies, but for the whole Albanian society," stresses the Committee in a release, issued on Saturday.

    The Albanian Helsinki Committee points out that "the main conclusion regarding the Shkoder events is that crime has reached dangerous points," and that the public opinion "is now more sensible than ever, because any hesitation is unacceptable and the recent developments require a sudden and firm intervention. "The strategy of dark forces, which aim at destabilizing the country to plunge it again into chaos and anarchy, should be attacked," says the AHC statement.

    "The international community and Europe have sent a clear message: the normalization process should not stop, the country should firmly move towards the way of reviving the parliamentary debate and involving all political forces in the process of drafting and approving the new constitution." /a.ke/mt/

    [19] Shkodra's stand testifies to triumph of governing alternative - Nano

    TIRANE, Jan 24 (ATA)-By H. Haxhiu, The solution in process of the problems created in public order in the Shkoder city, not under pressure, but in the logic of the law and rules, "is a genuine victory of the democratic processes and establishment of the rule of law in Albania," Fatos Nano, Albanian Prime Minister, told a news conference on Saturday.

    "The Shkoder civilized citizens gave no support to the criminals, but on the contrary, although under psychological and physical threat, the citizens helped the police both spiritually and materially.

    This testifies to the fact that our alternative to respond to violence through the law, has won, increasing, in every minute, the number of those who voted for it on June 29," said Nano, who did not in the least look disturbed by the constant demands of the opposition for fresh elections.

    He backs up this confidence with the immense work carried out to restore law and order,"as one of the priorities of the coalition government, which has undergone several stages, abiding by the logic of reforms undertaken and the normal phases of building the rule of law".

    "The priorities for the complete reconstruction of the police, improvement of legislation, logistic basis and enhancement of professionalism have proceeded well in general, Nano said.

    "Problems have been encountered in restructuring the police, with exponents being linked with organised crime. Destructive political structures have organised all forms of counter reaction, also including armed disturbances, such as that in Shkoder," said Nano. lm

    [20] Albania compiles with U.S standards - Clinton

    TIRANE, Jan 24 (ATA)-U.S. president Bill Clinton has asked the U.S. Congress to accelerate the procedure for Albania to get preferential treatment, according to the Albanian Foreign Ministry Press and Information office.

    The White House Press Office says in a report that in a letter addressed to the speaker of the House of Representatives and President of the U.S. Senate, President Clinton says that Albania "in full compliance with the criteria of the people's free movement, entitles itself to the right to get the preferential treatment and also benefit from other activities, not needing annual request for legal procedure."

    [21] International institutions unblock Albanian politics - PR

    TIRANE, Jan 24 (ATA)-By Eva Allushi, The Republican party (RP) hailed the statement of the European Troika and considered that the "caprices" of the country's two biggest parties, DP and SP, can be settled only through imposition by European institutions.

    According to RP, this fact will deepen Europe's distrust of the Albanian political class.

    The RP chairman, Fatmir Mediu, told a news conference today that "the policy being pursued in Albania will create the idea among the International Community that the Albanians are not able to build their future".

    Hailing the statement of the three European missions and their suggestions to unblock the situation, Mediu declared himself in favour of adopting a constitution based on a broad compromise.

    In the conditions that the Democratic Party does not agree with the procedures of drafting and adopting a constitution, three Euro-parliamentarian missions, arrived in Albania to put an end to differences, which have left the country without a constitution.

    "Join the parliament and take part in the process of drafting a constitution", this was Europe's message to the Democratic party on Friday.

    Referring to the latest hunger strike being staged in Tirane, Mediu expressed the worry of his party over the hunger strike staged by the formerly politically persecuted and said that "we back their request to abrogate the law 8265, which brings back to public sector former State Security officials.

    Referring to the Shkoder event, Mediu considers that this precedent shows a "lack of stability on the part of the institutions and consequence of an extremely tense policy".

    "The institutions should act conform the law and respond only to the will of the law".

    He expressed the opinion that the draft-budget, which will be submitted to parliament, should financially stimulate the police and all the structures fighting crime. a.ke/pas/lm

    [22] Speculators import flour in expiry limits

    TIRANA, Jan. 24 (ATA) - By K. Shehu: A quantity of 2 200 tonne corn flour, which is in the expiry limts, arrived over the last days of December in the port of Durres.

    The chairman of the Albanian Consumers Association (ACA), Dr. Islam Cani, reported to ATA that due to the laboratory analyses, it came out that the imported flour had the microbe of staphylococcus arius and the mesenterci bacillus.

    According to dr. Cani, this flour should not be used.

    "The competent health and nutritive bodies should protect the interests of consumers from all possible cheats of irresponsible merchants, but there is no coordination between them," stresses Cani, adding that the law on food should be improved, which recognises the final competence of taking decision to the expertise of specialists of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture." /a.ke/pas/mt/
