A police officer was suspended after he was filmed beating a teenage minor who was arrested while trying to steal a decorative flag from the street posts, so that he could hang it at his house balcony for the 100th anniversary of Albania's independence.
Representatives from the civil society and children rights' associations joined to address a letter to the Interior Ministry, the Ombudsman, the Police Directory and all respective institutions. They are asking urgent measures to be taken against the police officer who handcuffed and physically attacked the minor.
The civil activists demand that such events should be reported more often and the police agents who don’t respect the law should undergo all respective punishments.
