Translated by: Kristi Gadeshi –
Residents of an old apartment building in the area of former Block in Tirana, which allegedly belongs former owners, are conflicted this Tuesday with police forces. Reason for the conflict has become a private bailiff demand for residents to immediately release the apartments where they stay for at least 60 years.
The request comes after the execution of a normative act of the government that orders the release of all ex-owners houses. At least 14 families have conflicted with private police and bailiff after they refused to vacate the building because they posses the original documents.
According to witnesses at the scene, families residing in an object on the “Margarita Tutulani” street, near “Petro Nini Luarasi” school, are against the person who claims to have documents on the object where dozens of people live for years.
According to residents, the owner who claims to take the building has forged documents, as he is a person with power. Within the apartment building are trapped families with minor children; some of them under the age of 1 and residents have decided not to leave their homes.
Two persons were sent to hospital after the escalated conflict with private police, after they lost consciousness. Some deputies of the Socialist Party as Sajmir Tahiri, Artan Gaci, Piro Lutaj and Vasilika Hysi were present in this conflict.
“We are five members of the parliament here, tell us what are you doing to the residents”, Tahiri told Deputy Director of Police of Tirana, Erzeni Breçani. Tahiri and Breçani have hotly debated among themselves, however the situation remains unclear and without a final solution.
