"I wanted to thank my colleagues in the government who voted for the amnesty law. This law will be submitted to the assembly and the floor belongs to the deputies who must give their qualified majority vote for the passage of the law on granting amnesty. From this amnesty, if it receives the vote of the deputies in the Assembly, about 600 convicted people will benefit to spend the holidays with their families. The draft law for granting amnesty is in the Parliament of Albania", said Manja.
