Refusal to Grant Macedonian TV Crew Visas

September 20, 1998

Mr. George Papandreou
Alternate Foreign Minister
Athens, Greece

The Macedonian Human Rights Movement of Canada find the actions of the Greek Liaison Office in Skopje to be unjustified and contradictory. Our organization is hereby protesting the refusal of visas to a Macedonian television crew that intended to cover the trial of the Macedonian minority party Rainbow.

We believe that the actions of the Greek Liaison Office are unjustifiable and contradictory because two weeks prior, the very same television crew was issued visas in a matter of hours to cover Macedonian Deputy Prime Minister Buzlevski's visit to Greece.

The refusal to grant the Macedonian television crew entry visas to cover this trial hinders one of the fundamental principles of an open society, the uninhibited flow of information. Therefore, the Macedonian Human Rights Movement of Canada requests that you utilize your influence as being the Alternate Foreign Minister to ensure that the inconsistent tendencies are explained and ultimately eliminated.
