Protest in TUZ demands the immediate release of Albanian Prisoners
TUZ, Malesia e Madhe, 11 May 2008 -- Approximately 150-200 Albanians from Malesia gathered today in front of the Malesia Cultural Center in TUZ to protest the illegal detention of 15 Albanians currently held in Spuz since September 2006. The demands coincided with those spelled out in New York the previous Friday.
The low turnout, however drew criticism from those in attendance, who partly blamed the political leaders from Malesia for not uniting well ahead of the announced demonstration. Moreover, the rally-goers became skeptical when long hold-out Ferhat Dinosha joined the rally sponsors, where he previously denounced any assembly by Albanians denouncing the judicial process of the detainees.
Another rally is scheduled tomorrow morning in front of the courthouse where the judicial proceedings are taking place. The demonstration begins at 8:30 a.m. local time.
