An Albanian court decided that the former minister of interior will have to remain under house arrest and face trial on charges of drug trafficking and corruption, Reuters reported Saturday. Saimir Tahiri (From PS.al)In October, Albania’s Prosecutors Office requested parliament to lift immunity of Saimir Tahiri, the country’s former interior minister, to investigate his role in an organized crime group that trafficked cannabis and to take him into custody. The Socialist Party majority rejected the request, saying that it was baseless and politically motivated.  Italian police had released wiretapped phone calls of a distant relative to Tahiri, Moisi Habilaj who was arrested together with Florian Habilaj for suspicion of having trafficked about 3.5 tons of cannabis over four years.
