Vetting bodies allocated some $ 4.5m in 2018 budget
$ 4.5 million is the fund set aside in the 2018 budget for Vetting bodies that will draft assessments on Albania’s judges and prosecutors.
According to the final state budget data for next year, just published in the Official Gazzette, the lion’s share of this figure will be received by the Independent Qualification Commission, headed by Genta Bungo.
The amount allocated for all the salaries and expenses of this body is about $ 1.8 million.
The Appeal Chamber, presided by Natasha Mulaj, will receive from the state budget about $ 1.3 million.
While a fund of about $ 500,000 is foreseen for public commissioners.
What is impressive in the budget of 2018 is the lack of funds for the High Council of the Prosecution, which has not yet been established, something that brought about the fierce clashes that accompanied the election of the acting Chief Prosecutor Arta Marku.
While the High Council of Justice, a body constituted just a few months ago, has at its disposal a fund of $ 900,000.
The costs are lower from what the Vetting Commissions themselves demanded.
The government overturned their demands for salaries ranging up to 6,000 dollars a month, setting salaries as nearly half of this amount.
