The Meeting of Lawyers in the Diaspora started this Monday, where the presentation of the network of professionals, the engagement of professionals in the field of justice in the Diaspora and their interaction with lawyers in Albania is one of the main goals of this event.
During his speech at the event, Minister of State for Diaspora Pandeli Majko said that this meeting should be seen as a mechanism that connects both parties, lawyers abroad and those in Albania for a joint commitment.
“Today’s meeting should not be seen as a ‘let’s talk about jurisprudence’ concept, but as a mechanism that will bind both sides to a common engagement. We find it very difficult to understand the mechanisms or reflections that should come from the protagonists of the field and I believe that the best “teaching” for the engagement of lawyers abroad in the function and interests of justice in Albania can be given only by the lawyers themselves. In this view it expresses the maximum commitment regarding interest. Not without purpose, I started by saying that the state needs this communication with you. I do not want you to take it as a diplomatic dictionary. “I think we are still at the beginning of a new legislation that we have started from scratch,” said Majko during his speech.
Speaking about the importance of Albanian lawyers abroad, Minister Majko said that their word needs more specific commitment when it comes to voting rights, bilateral agreements that are related to the interests of Albanian communities abroad, such as pension agreements. .
“What I want to emphasize is the fact that currently the voice and the word of the lawyers need a specified commitment because it is a commitment that is not just rhetoric but the issue of commitment to the right to vote, for a strong lawyer in terms of bilateral agreements that are related to the interests of Albanian communities abroad such as pension agreements. I am not saying that you will be real protagonists, but this dialogue will be an incentive to reflect in front of each other on what has been done or not done for good. “Without question, the joint engagement will continue to realize a concept that will be in the common interest”, said Majko further.
Minister Majko called on lawyers abroad to be involved in justice bodies in Albania, such as the School of Magistrates, because as he said all the human capital that is being invested for the future of Albanians should be invested for the future of Albania.
