European Court Trial Against Greece

March 24, 1998

Hristo Sideropoulos, along with several other founders of the Macedonian Cultural Centre in Lerin, filed a court case against the Greek government at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg on Tuesday, March 24, 1998.

The Macedonians have been struggling to open this cultural centre since 1990, but the Greek government has done everything in its power to prevent this. According to the European Convention Article 11:

"Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and to freedom of association with others, including the right to form and join trade unions for his interests."

The Document of the Copenhagen meeting of the CSCE-HD Section 4 Article 32 (6) states:

"Persons belonging to national minorities have the right to establish and maintain organizations or associations within their country and to participate in international non-governmental organizations."

Instead of abiding by these international human rights conventions, Greece illegally denies the Macedonians the right to establish the Macedonian Cultural Centre.
