The Albanian Helsinki Committee was informed by the Greek Helsinki Monitor that the progress of the investigative and judicial process to uncover the alleged case of torture by Greek police against the Albanian citizen, the deceased Pellumb Marnikollaj is not positive. The deceased’s family lawyers, who died in the premises of a police station in the Greek state, informed the Greek Helsinki Monitor that the trial judge charged with conducting a criminal investigation did not undertake any investigative actions but returned the court file in the prosecution, two years later, recommending that the case be archived. AHC, based on these data, expresses concern over the progress of this event by Greek justice authorities, where Albanian citizens who are injured or raped by police, or family members of victims of police violence, do not receive the deserved justice. AHC will continue to follow up on the issue with the assistance of the Greek Helsinki Monitor.
