Dialogue required on government-proposed amendment to law on non-profit organizations

15 September 2007

A group of non-profit organizations addressed a letter to relevant authorities asking for postponement of the debate on the draft-law "On an amendment on the law on non-profit organizations", planned to be passed by the Parliament on the 17th of September.

The request, signed by the Soros Foundation, the Center on Protection of Child Rights in Albania, CANGO Albania, Co-Plan, Partners-Albania and the Albanian Helsinki Committee stressed the need for consulting the draft-law with the representatives of civil society in Albania. Since a year ago, a group of civil society organizations in Albania and independent experts are working to submit some amendments to the "Law on Non-profit organizations".

The letter, addressed to the Assembly Speaker, and to the heads of parliamentary groups, expresses the concern for the drastic limitations of funding resources for the NPOs as well as tendencies of control and pressure by the government.
