This chapter focuses on Albania’s political situation under President Sali Berisha. It first considers the arrest of Socialist Party head Fatos Nano, who was accused of corruption during his stint as prime minister in 1991. It then considers the trial of Nano and other senior communists of the previous administration, including Nexhmije Hoxha and Ramiz Alia. It also discusses Berisha’s attempt to curtail press freedom in the country, the West’s support for Berisha and the Democratic Party, Berisha’s policy regarding Kosovo, and Amnesty International’s report accusing Albania of selling arms to the Rwandan army in violation of United Nations sanctions against that country.
