The future of the Greek minority living in Albania and their human rights

Although the article «The myths and prospects of a Greater Albania» (May 19) deals primarily with the Albanian question, it ignores the future of the Greek minority living in Albania. Northern Epirus is home to 250,000 Hellenes whose human rights have been abused by the Albanian government for over 80 years. The Albanian government has refused to acknowledge its obligations under the Corfu Protocol of 1914, which grants Albania’s Greek minority of Northern Epirus autonomy. This situation has to be corrected immediately and all articles of that protocol be implemented until such time as a referendum for the union of Northern Epirus with Greece can be held.
