People's Advocate (Avokati i Popullit)
Albania ratified the OPCAT in 2003 and established its NPM five years later, in 2008, within the Ombuds Institution (People's Advocate), through amendments to the existing legislation.
A specific unit was created within the existing institution to perform the NPM mandate. It started its operations in 2008.
The SPT member Zdenka Perović is the SPT Focal Point for Albania.
