Greece continues to blacklist Macedonians Macedonian Human Rights Movement International - Press Release

Toronto, Canada Greece continues to blacklist Macedonians who are active in human rights organizations abroad or who are political refugees. The latest reported incident occurred on February 2, 2008, when Slavko Mangovski, a dual citizen of the United States and the Republic of Macedonia, and well-known human rights activist, was denied entry because he "is a person for whom an alert has been issued for the purposes of refusing entry" and is "in the national register".

Ive been blacklisted for calling on Greece to respect the rights of its Macedonian minority. It is outrageous that the European Union allows this to go on, said Slavko Mangovski.

"Greece is consistently allowed to persecute its ethnic minorities, ignore European Court of Human Rights rulings, and discriminate against anybody who denounces its systematic racism. The European Union must finally make clear to Greece the consequences of its actions" said MHRMI president Bill Nicholov.
