Mons.George Frendo Condoles Family of Murdered Youth Calling Violence Offence against Human Dignity

"During my recovery stay from Covid 19 in Italy, I followed the news of the events in Albania after the murder of a 25-year-old youth by a police officer. I want to express my support and condolences to the family of Klodian Rasha for this great loss. Police make a very useful job in society, which we should appreciate. But we ask them to exercise it with a lot of responsibility and respect for every citizen."
With these words the Metropolitan Archbishop of Tirana - Durrës, Mons. George Frendo has reacted regarding the current situation created after the murder of the 25-year-old youth by a police officer in Albania on Monday.
There were violent protests in Tirana and some other cities of Albania over Rasha's murder which were characterized by clashes between police forces and protesters most of whom were juveniles since the assassination which will reportedly continue on Monday evening. There have been damages as well as massive arrests in an excessive use of police violence, as People's Advocate found out during inspections in detention premises in police stations.
But Mons.George Frendo thinks vandalism is absurd saying that who pays for damaged public property are the people with their taxes. As David Cameron, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, said: "There is no such thing as public money. There is only taxpayers' money."
In the meantime as Mons. Frendo said violence is always an insult against human dignity.
"It is today that Jesus teaches us and invites us to see this dignity in the face of every man. And let us not forget that violence breeds violence. Jesus Himself said, 'All those who seize the sword will die from the sword." (see Matthew 26, 52). /
