AHEPA Condemns Attack on Thessaloniki Mayor

May 21, 2018

WASHINGTON — Supreme President Carl R. Hollister has issued the following statement:

“The Order of AHEPA strongly condemns the violent attack (video clips) committed upon Thessaloniki Mayor Yiannis Boutaris by extremists at an event in remembrance of the victims of the Genocide of Pontian Greeks.  This assault, which left the mayor hospitalized with head, neck, and leg injuries, is an outrage and unacceptable.

“The perpetrators must be held accountable and brought to justice swiftly. The people of Thessaloniki must come together to condemn this senseless, cowardly act of violence.

“The Order of AHEPA wishes Mayor Boutaris a speedy recovery.”

US Embassy in Athens also condemned the attack. “We condemn the shocking attack of Mayor Boutaris over the weekend. Mayor Boutaris has long stood as an advocate for freedom of speech – a core democratic value. At this time, we would like to extend our best wishes to him for a speedy recovery,” US Embassy said via Twitter.


An ethnic Greek jailed in Albania after being elected Mayor of the seaside town of Himare said Prime Minister Edi Rama is behind it and controls the courts who sentenced him over the protests of Greece.
