    Mayor of Shkodra Valdrin Pjetri responds to DP allegations about his past


    The new mayor of Shkodra, Valdrin Pjetri, has been the center of accusations by the DP in regard to his past, claiming he has been arrested for drug trafficking. On Tuesday, Pjetri took to Facebook to once again react to the accusations by stating that the only truth he abides by, is with what law enforcement agencies will reveal.

    “I stated my truth before the candidacy and a few days ago via official documents. The only truth is what comes out of the offices of law enforcement agencies and not those of the DP. I look forward to the decision to complete the image verification process by the Albanian and Italian official authorities, ” writes Pjetri on Facebook.

    The DP published a number of documents earlier, claiming that Pjetri was previously arrested in Italy for drug trafficking and was sentenced to 18 months in prison, but after his co-operation, the sentence was suspended and the deportation measure came into effect. In this regard, SP MP Taulant Balla took to social media to state that the SP stands by the law and that they are awaiting the outcome of the case. / Tiranapost.al
