Penal defense lawyers demand that the “amnesty planned for inmates scheduled for late December” to be comprehensive and not just to focus on women, infants and the elderly. According to lawyer, Saimir Visha: Amnesty, which is expected to be restored over the next three years, should help reduce prison overcrowding.

According to lawyers, amnesty should also include individuals who have not been sentenced over the past two years, so that prisons can provide space for Albanians serving sentences abroad in the case of extradition.

During the "Gold Platoon 2019 event”, where lawyers were rated as among the best performing: issues such “work-safety” or “the roles in justice reform” were highlighted.

With the title of Gold Platoon, 4 penal lawyers were awarded nationwide.
