The mother of the young man who hit Berisha: My son is bipolar
Ermira Kaçaçi, the mother of the 31-year-old man who hit Berisha during today's protest, told Euronews that her son suffers from bipolar disorder and that this event has nothing to do with politics.
"I don't want his son's misfortune to be used by the police. He worked as a motorcyclist, delivering pizzas. There are no friends who deal with these things. Absolutely not used. He has had different problems. There was absolutely no political sympathy. He doesn't even go to vote. I don't know why he went to the protest today. I apologize to the person who shot them, Mr. Berisha. I don't want a political party to deal with its own problems. I am very sorry that they deal with disasters. He is ill with bipolar disorder, he has epicrisis, he has been receiving treatment for 5 years. I didn't know where it was. In the morning I left her alone, I told her to stay at home, as if I had a premonition", she said.
