A study conducted by the Albanian Helsinki Committee shows that most of the criminal charges on which investigations of the case has not started or which have been ceased by the Prosecution Office are reported to be crimes against life, reports news agency.

The conclusion comes after reviewing the decisions of Tirana and Durres Prosecution offices for the last six months of 2009 and the first six months of 2010.

"We have evidenced that the prosecution has decided not to start a trial when there were crimes against life, such as the threats, murder, willful injury, actions leading to suicides. Regarding decisions to cease cases, most of the offenses were related to destruction of property, forgery of papers and abuse of office," declared Etilda Gjonaj from the Helsinki Committee.

Another issue that was highlighted in this study deals with the fact that in these two Prosecution Offices, during the reviewed period, there was no case where the prosecutor has ceased an issue and restarted it with his own initiative.

Bujar Sheshi, prosecutor at the Prosecutor General office opposed some the findings of the report and stressed that the prosecution has been requesting since several years the establishment of a special institution for persons sentenced with compulsory treatment.

The report states that the prosecution has initiated a fewer cases compared with the criminal charged brought in by police or citizens.
