Albania: Dozens of members of the Greek Minority arrested at Himara

According to epiruspost.gr, in the last few hours the tension in the Albanian city of Himara rises dangerously as dozens of the members of the indigenous Greek minority of the area have been brought to the police station.

It all began last Friday, when the Himara City Council would ratify in a meeting the government’s decision to “rebuild” the area, an plans that is equivalent to the confiscation of the property belonging to the minority and the demolition buildings.

Approximately two hundred members of the Greek minority of Himara tried to attend the meeting, which was advertised as open to all. At the initiative of the mayor, police intervened and prevented their entry. The meeting was canceled and the Albanian police took over the action.
