Greece's condition for Beleri, the request to the 27 members of the European Union is revealed
The three immediate steps that Greece wants Tirana to take regarding the Beleri issue are clarified.
Greece has sent a written statement to the Committee of Permanent Representatives (COREPER) in Brussels. In particular, the Greek side demands that the elected president of Himara, Fredi Beleri, take office immediately, that his right to a fair trial and the presumption of innocence be respected, writes the Greek media Kathimerini .
They are contained in a written statement deposited in the Committee of Permanent Representatives and are attached to the letter sent to Tirana and Skopje by the 27 EU countries for the opening of the five basic chapters of the negotiations. Greece demands that the elected mayor of Himara, Fredi Beleri, take office immediately, that his right to a fair trial and the presumption of innocence be respected.
The hardening of the Greek position, according to the newspaper, is related to the intolerance that Tirana has shown this period, but it is also a message for European partners, who consider that Greece is bilateralizing the Beleri issue, ignoring its deeply European dimension.
"For Greece, the prevailing situation contradicts our common European values, membership criteria and European law, which are non-negotiable," the statement said. It is emphasized once again that the Beleri case "constitutes a flagrant violation of the rule of law and the political rights of Albanian citizens, especially members of the Greek ethnic minority. Therefore, Greece will not agree on the next stages of the accession process, including the adoption of the evaluation report of the outstanding standards.
The Greek statement gives a brief history of the case and states that on the eve of the May 14 elections, Mr. Beleri had been constantly the target of direct verbal attacks by the Albanian political leadership. And despite the undermining of his candidacy, he was one of the seven opposition candidates who managed to be elected in the country's 61 municipalities.
The Greek side also includes the minority dimension of the case, as it accuses Albania of discriminatory practice "against a member of an ethnic minority protected by international law".
It says that the detention of Beler almost seven months after his election contradicts the Albanian law, according to which it is clear that the assumption of duties should not be affected by the process or the conclusion of unresolved cases, as it is a simple administrative act. which does not violate the independence of the judiciary.
In the following, it is concluded that "the prevention of the oath of the elected mayor is a conscious political decision of the Albanian government, which reflects its contempt for the basic principles of the rule of law".
