Forced labour camps in Communist Albania
Communist Albania maintained labour camps (Albanian: Kampe pune) throughout the territories it controlled. The first Albanian Communist labour camps were greatly expanded around Tirana, and were intended to hold political prisoners and opponents of the regime. A number of camps existed between 1946 and 1991  as political prisoners, criminals, the mentally ill and others were incarcerated, generally without trial or judicial process. Political prisoners were severely and continuously under Sigurimi surveillance.
