Chapter Summary

In the Republic of Albania there is no official religion. The State is neutral on questions of belief and conscience and guarantees the freedom of their expression in public life. The Criminal Code of Albania is based on the Constitution of the Republic of Albania, general principles of the international penal right, and international treaties ratified by the Albanian State. The Criminal Code is made of this Code and other laws that include the penal acts. "The criminal code of the Republic of Albania is in charge of protecting the State's dependence and its territorial integrity, human's dignity, human's rights and freedoms, constitutional order, property, environment, Albanians' co-habitation and well-understanding with national minorities, and religious cohabitation; also, the criminal code should prevent the penal acts. In Albania the ombudsman institution was established in the Constitution and its organization and functions are determined in the Statute on People's Advocate of 1999.
