Charged with absurd counterrevolutionary allegations, 39 Catholic priests and intellectuals, chained together, were publicly tried, on January 30, 1946, in the Rozafat Cinema, in Shkoder.
One of the many witnesses to speak on behalf of the innocence of the Catholic defendants, was Luigj Pici, vice-president of the Democratic Front.
After his testimony, Luigj Pici was removed from his office and, without a trial, was executed by gunshot by the Communists, with their theophobic Socialist ideology of death and destruction.
