US Ambassador to Tirana Yuri Kim reacted to the Special Prosecution operation for the tender of police uniforms, which led to the handcuffing of eight officials and former officials.
The US top diplomat emphasizes that it is good that we are seeing anti-corruption actions. In a post on social media, Kim states that abusing or manipulating public procurement processes is tantamount to stealing.
“We are pleased to see the actions of SPAK against Corruption. Abusing or manipulating public procurement is like stealing all the citizens (including American citizens whose taxes help) to fatten the wallets of oneself or “friends”. This is a crime“, Writes the ambassador.
