The First Instance Court in Tirana ruled Thursday that Democratic Party official, Albana Vokshi, must pay 100,000 All to Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, who sued her for defamation and slander. Mayor Veliaj had filed a slander lawsuit against Vokshi, following several allegations and statements made by the Democratic Party official.
Earlier this year, Veliaj had filed slander charges against former DP councilor, Akil Kraja, who was ordered by the court to pay 100,000 ALL in compensation to Veliaj. The Mayor donated the compensation to Isa Boletini school in Koder Kamza and the funds were used for the purchase of equipment and computers for the students.
Veliaj has said that compensations for every slander trial against DP officials will be delivered to the Education Fund, set up for the financial support of kindergartens, libraries, schools and the community. /Tiranapost.al/
