Tirana, 7 September 2015/Independent Balkan News Agency

Socialist MP of the left wing majority in parliament, Arben Ndoka has given up his seat. Through an open letter addressed to the socialist parliamentary group, Ndoka clarifies the reasons of his action, where he says that everything has to do with the inquest launched in Italy against him.

“I shall be away from parliament but a loyal supporter of the efforts that you are making in that institution with some real criminals of this country and please forgive me for causing you trouble in these two years that you’ve tried to take Albania out of this mess, cause by real criminals”, Ndoka says in this letter.

The resignation of the MP follows a series of accusations launched against him by the right wing opposition for allegedly having criminal connections. /ibna/
