The Minister of Interior, Dritan Demiraj, visited today the city of
Elbasan, to have a closer look to the alarming situation with fires.
On Facebook Demiraj criticized the lack of engagement from the local government and citizens.
“Unacceptable. I am here in Krasta, Elbasan, and you don’t see enough firefighters, army and Civilian Emergency staff. No one from the local government or from citizens. This situation can be taken under control only if we all cooperate”, Demiraj said.
However, the Minister thanked the Head of Civilian Emergencies and his structures. On Facebook, Demiraj wrote that intentionally started fires have put in danger our national security. For this reason he warned that the ones who light fires will be caught and imprisoned.
