Business in Albania and the missing protection
In Albania, business organizations complain about bureaucracy and the numerous procedures in the offices of the administration. They also complain about high taxes and their constant increase
Tirana, 29 March 2016/Independent Balkan News Agency
By Edison Kurani
The head of the American Chamber of Commerce, Lorenc Gjoni has several suggestions for the improvement of the situation: “The revision of procedures that businesses encounter, the specification of their obligations, the publication of these procedures online, in order to be as easy as possible and to see it beforehand, to collect all the necessary paperwork, to visit an office if it is necessary and resolve a problem, all of this would help businesses to do business and not merely handle paperwork”.
The blocking of the Administrative Court
Several years ago the Administrative Court was established and there was a lot of talk about it. But the number of requests that swarmed this court made the process for their examination a slow one.
Businesses complain that this court has minimalist capacities.
“Given that the structure of this court is very small, there’s a queue in place and we must wait a year to handle every case”, says Luan Bregasi, president of Business Albania.
The Business Ombudsman is established
In order to prevent any delays concerning complaints filed by businesses, the government has promised that it will establish the Business Advocate.
Ministry of Finance also has such institution, the Taxpayers Ombudsman. But another one will be added, which will be at the same level with other independent institutions.
The scope of the Business Ombudsman is to examine every individual case to be investigated and offer recommendations on systematic changes.
Minister of Economy, Milva Ekonomi says that “The Business Ombudsman will handle all the complaints and then solve the complaint if it has a solution within the legislation. If not, it can put pressure for the electoral framework to be changed”.
EBRD expert, Juraj Strasser has presented the EBRD concept for the establishment of the Ombudsman institution in Albania. Strasser says that the project has been already discussed with the Albanian government and the World Bank.
The Business Ombudsman is expected to be established by the state and be controlled by it.
But the Tirana Chamber of Commerce and Industry is asking for this solution to be done by the business sector.
Nikolin Jaka, head of the Chamber, has a concrete proposal: “This institution must be elected by the business community, meaning the chambers of commerce and must be voted in parliament through a special bill”, Mr. Jaka suggests.
Jaka’s idea is also backed by IFC (International Finance Corporation). Elira Sakiqi, IFC representative says that they support the recommendations of the Chamber of Commerce. Sakiqi also says that “the delivery of requests by institutions and the government must be made based on deadlines”.
The blocking of permits has frozen constructions
Albania is known as a country “hungry” for constructions, but they have been blocked for several years.
Given the urban chaos and the endless construction permits, the left wing government is trying to put the construction process in the right tracks.
And to anticipate the deterioration of the situation until urban regulatory plans are approved and implemented, it decided to suspend construction permits indefinitely.
Now, things seem to be changing.
After the temporary blockade, the government promises that it will significantly reduce the time and procedures for the construction permits.
The representative of the ministry of Economy, Bashkim Sykja, says that the aim is to issue permits within a year and a half and not take years as they did before and become subject of shady corruption affairs….

Albania’s Ex-Landowners Struggle to Regain Lost Property
A landmark ruling from Strasbourg has given some of Albania’s former landowners hope that they will finally get compensation for assets nationalized in communist times.

Orhan Jegeni, an 80-year-old retired mechanical engineer, is one of the leading voices among formerly wealthy families in Albania whose properties were seized by the communists after World War II and who are fighting to regain their lost assets.
He is of the last remaining heirs of the Frasheri family, which produced a number of distinguished patriots and writers, including Abdyl, Naim and Sami Frasheri, who formed part of the Albanian Renaissance movement in the late 19th century that led to Albania’s independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1912.
Before the communists took power, his grandparents, Mehmet Frasheri and Vesime Toptani Frasheri, owned 100 hectares of land on the outskirts of Tirana as well as a number of farms and houses in the city itself.
Orhan was only 10 when World War II ended and when Enver Hoxha’s communist regime took control and started seizing the property of the rich, since the system allowed only citizens to own only the smallest holdings.
„I remember our despair as children when they even seized our toys from the courtyard,“ he recalled.
During the subsequent years, all of their family’s property was eventually seized except for one house in Tirana, where he and his large family lived in difficult conditions for decades.
At the same time, the names of his ancestors were given to schools, streets and monuments across the country.
They bore the hardships of those times like all other Albanian citizens, dreaming of regime change and hoping one day to regain ownership of their heritage.
Political change finally dawned in the 1990s, but the new governments that took over did not allow Jegeni and six other families who are legal successors to the property once owned by the Frasheris and Toptanis to live out their dream.
„I have had a difficult life, chasing the properties of my family, and what keeps me going now is only nostalgia,“ he told BIRN.
„I would have never thought that our case would be dragged out in this way. This was just beyond my imagination,“ he added.
His family and many other families are still struggling to get their assets back, or at least get financial compensation.
Orhan become one of the most prominent voices in this struggle since he started seeking legal rights for himself and his family in 1994.
Meanwhile, from the early 1990s, tens of thousands of people came from the north and from other remote areas and settled in Tirana, where they started seizing land and building houses without securing ownership rights or construction permits.
In subsequent years, governments enacted laws that enabled the people who had worked or occupied the landholdings to privatize and legalize them. Politicians hoped these laws would bring them popularity and ensure their re-election.
„Around 70 per cent of our properties on the outskirts of Tirana are now occupied by the newcomers who were brought in by politicians who wanted to gain electoral benefits out of this move,“ Orhan told BIRN.
In September 1996, the state Commission for Properties recognised their inherited property rights to 208,696 square metres of land.
But so far all that his family has managed to take back in all the years of legal struggles were 7,452 square metres in Tirana’s distant suburbs.
After waiting for years to get the rest of the land, or at least financial compensation, in July 2010 the family took the case to the European Human Rights Court in Strasbourg.
Two weeks ago, on March 17, the verdict finally came, ordering the Albanian government to pay 3.3 million euro to the heirs of the Frasheri family as compensation for the remaining 201,244 square meters that had been recognized by Albania as theirs but not financially compensated.
Jegeni told BIRN that the families had become exhausted with the length of the legal process and would probably accept the ruling without an appeal, although some of them believe the compensation rate awarded by the Strasbourg court was too low.
„I have to make peace with this sum despite my better judgment since the other inheritors are tired and don’t want to appeal,“ he said.
„I will give the majority of the money that I get from the Strasbourg ruling to my two sons who live with their families abroad, to make their life a little bit easier,“ he added.
„But I will continue other battles for my family properties, since all the money that we will get now may not do much more than cover the expenses we have accrued in all these years, fighting for our rights,“ he concluded.
