3 August 2019 Clarification by the National Security Advisor to the President of the Republic, Mr. Bahri Shaqiri
Major General Ylber Selman Dogjani has been dismissed from his post as the Commander of the Albanian Navy Forces, only because his mandate did expire.
His dismissal is unrelated to any other allegation or pretense, raised also by some media outlets, hinting that the dismissal is allegedly related to legal violations.
If the President of the Republic had been convinced of even a minor violation committed by Major General Dogjani, he would have immediately discharged him, and not when Dogjani had fulfilled his term as the Commander of the Albanian Navy Forces.
President Meta hopes that the successor to Major General Dogjani, who will be nominated for the post, will not only possess the right integrity, but also count upon a fully career in the Albanian Navy Forces.
One of the main tasks of the President of the Republic is to protect the integrity of the military officials against any kind of pressure and political games.
