Posted on

Analysis of the System of Declaration of Constitutional Court Judges in Albania, is a study published by the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania, which evaluates that structure of the wealth of the Constitutional Court members in Albania as well as the integrity of the asset declaration system.

The goal of this report is to identify key trends towards the enrichment of these judges who have a long career in the justice system and make up a quarter of its members. The study sheds light not only on how career judges in Albania have accumulated wealth but also on key practices, recognized as “red flags”, which obscure the origin of this wealth. These include dividends from businesses, debts owed by family members, real estate transactions and cash kept outside the banking system.
