Sir David Latham visited  Tirana in July, to explore the possibility of the Foundation being involved in more substantial discussions on judicial reform in September.  During this visit he met the President of the Republic, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, the EU Ambassador to Albania and the Chairman of the Parliamentary Justice Committee, among others.  Although extra funding was made available by the FCO for further work,  in the event the Albanians were not ready for them, and these visits did not take place.  Instead, Slynn Trustee Sir Geoffrey Vos attended a high level conference in Tirana on 6 October as President-Elect of the ENCJ and had a series of meetings with our Albanian counterparts, which makes it likely that the Foundation will become involved quite soon in the continuing discussions on judicial reform in Albania.
