    The Public Commissioner, during the submission of the appeal grounds held that the assessee is found in terms of inaccurate, insufficient and inconsistent declaration for the asset assessment, failing to reach a reliable level for her confirmation in office. The Public Commissioner requested the Chamber to consider the grounds of the appeal and after conducting a thorough evaluation of the case, to decide the amendment of decision no. 392, dated 28.05.2021, of the Independent Qualification Commission and dismissal from office of the assessee Natasha Prifti (Shallapi).

To support his claims, the legal representative included in the rebuttals a financial analysis that he submitted with the Chamber. The assessee requested the Chamber to consider fair decision no. 392, dated 28.05.2021, of the Independent Qualification Commission – according to which, the assessee reaches a reliable level for the asset and background assessee, as well as a qualifying level for the proficiency assessment – and to uphold this decision.

    The presiding judge informed the parties at trial that following the interim decision of the trial panel of the previous hearing, the Chamber has received and forwarded to the parties the court file of the Durres Judicial District Court, to the purpose of the review of the case.

    Once the parties confirmed the acquaintance with the file and after declaring that they had no other procedural requests, the trial panel decided to close the judicial investigation of the case.

    During the submission of the final conclusions, the Public Commissioner stated that the assessee, even following the filed evidence, failed to prove the opposite of the appeal on the asset assessment, being found in the conditions of insufficient declaration and lack of legitimate sources to justify the assets.

    Referring to ethics and commitment to professional values, the Public Commissioner assessed that the appeal grounds about the asset assessment are sufficient to request the dismissal from office of the assessee, Mr. Ludovik Dodaj. As regards the court file of the Durres Judicial District Court, the Public Commissioner held that following its analysis, it did not appear that the assessee had been part of the prosecution body during the proceedings of the court case, which could put him in a situation of conflict of interest during the exercise of office. The Public Commissioner requested the Chamber the amendment of decision no. 255, dated 08.06.2020, of the Independent Qualification Commission and the dismissal from office of the assessee.

    The legal representative of the assessee, Mr. Ludovik Dodaj, opposed the Public Commissioner’s appeal grounds related to the asset assessment, stating that the assessee has managed to prove the legitimacy of the sources for the creation of his property. With regard to court file of Durres Judicial District Court, the legal representative stated that the provided documentation proves clearly that there is no circumstance that would place the assessee in terms of conflict of interest, in reference to the proficiency assessment criterion. The assessee requested the Chamber to uphold decision no. 255, dated 08.06.2020, of the Independent Qualification Commission and his confirmation in office.

    During the submission of the final conclusions, the Public Commissioner stated that the assessee is found in terms of inaccurate, insufficient and inconsistent declaration for the asset assessment and that during the trial at the Appeal Chamber she failed to prove the opposite of the appeal grounds. The Public Commissioner stated that she shares a contrary position with the Independent Qualification Commission that has decided on the confirmation in office of the assessee, supporting it on the principle of objectivity and proportionality. The Public Commissioner requested the Chamber the amendment of decision no. 392, dated 28.05.2021, of the Independent Qualification Commission and dismissal from office of the assessee, Mrs. Natasha Prifti (Shallapi).

    The legal representative of the assessee objected the Public Commissioner, stating that Mrs. Prifti reaches a reliable level in the asset assessment, as her financial insufficiency is at such level that constitutes no ground for dismissal. The legal representative requested the Chamber to evaluate the assessee for this criterion in the light of the principle of objectivity and proportionality, as well as to take into account the fact that Ms. Prifti achieved a reliable level in the background assessment and a good qualifying score in the proficiency assessment. The legal representative requested the Chamber to uphold decision no. 392, dated 28.05.2021, of the Independent Qualification Commission, as a fair decision and founded in law.
