Annulment of the establishment decision of the 'Macedonian Language Center' in Florina requested!

They took action to cancel the decision to establish the "Macedonian Language Center" in the city of Florina, where  Macedonians live.

On 29 December 2022, the Florina prosecutor applied for the annulment of the court decision that registered the association “Center for Macedonian Language in Greece”.

As it will be remembered, the Florina Civil Court of First Instance decided to establish the association called “Macedonian Language Center” on 27 July 2022.

Among the aims of the said association were the preservation and development of the Macedonian language in Greece and supporting the teaching of the Macedonian language as an optional course in Greek universities and public schools.

According to the news in the national press, Florina Prosecutor Anastasia Kalayci claimed that the founding decision of the "Macedonian Language Center" was contrary to the Prespa Agreement signed between Greece and North Macedonia, and demanded the annulment of the court decision that registered the establishment of the association. It was also stated that Prosecutor Kalayci claimed that the association was "trying to create a minority in the region".

Prosecutor: “There are NO MACEDONIANS, NO MACEDONIAN LANGUAGE IN GREECE"

It was noteworthy that the prosecutor claimed that Macedonians do not live in Greece and that there is no Macedonian language.

Saying that there are no Macedonian-speaking “Macedonian” citizens in Greece, but Greek-speaking Greek citizens, Kalayci argued that for this reason, the aims of the association in question are not clear.

The prosecutor argued that there could be misunderstandings that the association's charter supports a different dialect called the "Macedonian language", which does not exist in Greece.

It was also noteworthy that Prosecutor Kalayci claimed that the systematic development of the language of a foreign country bordering Greece in the Macedonian and Thrace regions of Greece would be against the security and public order of Greece.

It was stated that the hearing in which the request for annulment of the establishment decision of the "Macedonian Language Center" in Florina will be discussed will be held on February 2.

HONORARY PRESIDENT OF THE JUDICIARY REQUESTED THAT THE DECISION OF THE ESTABLISHMENT BE ANNOUNCED

As it will be remembered, Vasiliki Thanu, Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Appeals, made a statement in December and stated that the decision to recognize the "Center for Macedonian Language in Greece" established in the city of Florina, where the Macedonian minority is densely populated, should be cancelled.

Thanu argued that the annulment of the recognition decision of the association in question was a national issue.

About a month after the announcement of Vasiliki Thanu, who also served as the prime minister during the election government, the action to cancel the founding decision of the association was recorded as an extremely remarkable development.
