Rama’s term expires today, citizens protest again for Jonada
Today expires the deadline that the citizens gave to Prime Minister Rama on August 4 to dismiss Gladis Nanon, Mirela Kumbaro and Bledi Çuçi in connection with the Himara tragedy where 7-year-old Jonada was killed.
On August 4, just 2 days after the tragedy in Potam, citizens held a peaceful protest in front of the Ministry of the Interior under the motto “Justice for Jonada” and “The boat didn’t kill him, the state killed him.”
Meanwhile, one of their demands was the dismissal of 2 ministers and the director of the police, otherwise the protest will continue today at 19:30 in front of the Ministry of the Interior.
The opposition leaders, Sali Berisha and Ilir Meta, who have expressed their support for today’s protest, also joined the protest a few days ago.
Jonada Avdia, the 7-year-old from Tropoja, was killed on the seashore while she was bathing with her father. She was hit by the speedboat driven by Commissioner Arjan Tase, now arrested.
The event aroused great anger in the public opinion due to the fact that Tase, at the time he headed the police station in Himara, was under investigation for favoring drug trafficking. But the charges against him were dismissed and only a month later he returned to office.
