Albania's parliament Friday adopted a key judicial reform to fight corruption and organised crime, a major step in its progress towards European Union membership.A NATO member since 2009 and a candidate to join EU since 2014, Albania was asked by Brussels to overhaul its graft-plagued justice system to join the bloc.All 140 lawmakers voted for the reform which had been blocked for months as the opposition was opposed to foreigners being included in a body tasked with examining candidates for magistrates.The Albanian government hopes to begin negotiations on EU membership by the end of the year.
