The Tirana Prosecutor's Office has requested a life sentence for the accused in the murder of 17-year-old Griselda Gjikola. The serious incident occurred in 2018 in the Lapraka area. The Prosecution requests that the other accused for non-escalation of the crime, Robert Muzhaqi, be sentenced to 25 years in prison.

17-year-old Briselda Gjikola was in the car with 23-year-old Erion Bengo who was injured. They were inside the gray Benz A class, where they were shot with bullets.

After harassing the girls at the table, Benga got up and accompanied the 17-year-old and the other two girls in the car.
