Athens Mayor set to confer with ethnic Greeks in Himare


On Monday, Mayor Kostas Bakoyannis is poised to journey to Himare with the intention of engaging in discussions with members of the ethnic-Greek populace residing in the southern Albanian urban center.

Additionally, he is anticipated to convey his unwavering backing for the upcoming mayor of Himare, Fredi Beleri, who has been under detainment prior to trial since his apprehension in May on allegations of purchasing votes, according to Ekathimerini.

The 51-year-old refutes the accusations against him. The detention of Beleri, which occurred shortly before the local elections in Albania, has resulted in strained relations between the two neighboring nations.

Athens has issued a veiled threat to impede the Balkan country’s pursuit of European Union membership unless Beleri is liberated and permitted to undertake his sworn oath to officially assume his designated role.

Scheduled for Monday evening, Bakoyannis is slated to address a substantial congregation of Himare’s ethnic Greek inhabitants.
