The case of activist Naum Disho has become the centre of attention once again. Greek national Disho has been proclaimed a fugitive for the second time, after he was sentenced by an Albanian court to a year of jail time for the desecration of the Boboshtice village graves.
Last Friday, men of the Albanian Special Forces entered the house of Greek national Disho bearing guns and wearing hoods looking for him.
The Greek national from the city of Korytsa is today the top fugitive wanted in Albania. The judicial confusion on the case led Disho into fleeing and now a second arrest warrant has been issued against him.
One year ago Albanian far rightists accused Disho of desecrating the graves of Albanian citizens while he was trying to reconstruct the village’s cemetery, which includes a commemorative tomb of the Greek fallen soldiers of WWII.
“This is clearly a political issue. They want us locked up in jail because we call out loud our Greek-Vlach identity and fight for our rights. The Albanians will not recognize the Greek minority in the region of Korytsa” told Greek daily Proto Thema Mr. Disho.
Disho called the Greek state to show interest in the issues concerning the Greek minority of Albania, which has been degraded by the Albanian government and is being diplomatically approached by Romania.
Mr. Bolanos, the President of the organization representing the Greek minority in Albania, said that “Omonoia” is fully supporting Naum Disho, who is being prosecuted by far-right nationalists that aim at disrupting all communication levels between the Albanian state and the Greek minority in the country.
