Today, on 17.02.2022, at 10:00, the Appeal Chamber held the public plenary session of case (JD) no. 3/2021, dated 30.04.2021, pertaining to the appeal of the appellant Bujar Memia against the High Prosecutorial Council decision no. 81, dated 31.03. 2021 “On imposing a disciplinary measure against prosecutor Bujar Memia”, and interested parties, the High Inspectorate of Justice (HIJ) and the High Prosecutorial Council (HPC).

Following the verification of the presence of the parties, the appellant submitted two preliminary requests, by which he requested: finding the lack of competence of the Chamber to review his case, as well as considering invalid the representation act of the High Inspector of Justice.

The trial panel, after being consulted, pursuant to Article 179/7 of the Constitution, Article 5/3 of Law 84/2016 “On the transitional re-evaluation of judges and prosecutors in the Republic of Albania”, Article 71/3 of Law 8577/2000 “On the organization and functioning of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Albania”, as amended, decided to reject the first request of the appellant Bujar Memia.

As regards the request for considering invalid the representation act of the High Inspector of Justice, the trial panel decided to take time for its assessment and therefore, it decided to postpone the hearing for the next day, on February 18, 2022, at 11:30.

The public plenary session will take place in the premises of the Appeal Chamber, at Boulevard “Dëshmorët e Kombit”, no. 3, Tirana.
