"Athanasiu's statements are incompatible with the principles of human rights and equality"
Sibel Mustafaoğlu, Board Member of PASOK Provincial Organization and Chairman of ORFEAS, Rhodope Provincial Addiction Prevention and Mental Health Center, made a statement after the 2nd Vice President of the Greek Parliament, Haralambos Athanasiu, stated that the elected deputies of the Turkish minority could be heard.
Stating that Athanasiu's statements are of the kind that incite the people to hatred and enmity and are incompatible with human rights and equality, ORFEAS President Mustafaoğlu stated that she strongly condemned Athanasiou’s statements and made the following statement:
"I strongly condemn the statements of Haralambos Athanasiu, Deputy of the New Democracy Party and Deputy Speaker of the Parliament.
Making statements that incite the people to hatred and enmity and target their religious beliefs, especially from official mouths, is incompatible with the principles of human rights and equality reached by western civilization.
After the ND Government admitted that they had tapped the phone of PASOK President Andrulakis, it once again showed that it resorted to tactics that we remember well from the past and that never fit with democracy."
