Emigrant Community in Greece: Apologize for slandering Albanians
Greek media should apologize. This is what the Immigrant Community in Greece says after the news in the Greek media that the possible perpetrator of Caroline's murder was an Albanian. These headlines occupied the media, before the husband Babis Anagnostopoulos himself, 32, confessed to the murder of his wife.
In a post on the social network Facebook, the Immigrant Community in Greece states that the Greek media did not miss the chance to voluntarily cultivate the stereotype of "foreign criminal, immigrant", acts that incite hatred and racism in Greek society.
"Let us not cultivate hatred in our society that has been badly damaged, but where we can and should all coexist harmoniously. Let us be united against all forms of violence, the attack on the innocent and vulnerable, the criminal act, for a more prosperous tomorrow for all! ” , is written in their reaction.
The Albanian Emigrant Community in Greece expresses the deep shock and disgust aroused by the serious crime that shook the entire public opinion in the country.
Like everyone else, we follow with shock the latest developments in the investigation of the murder of the young mother in Glika Nera, by her own husband. We express our sincere condolences and unconditional support to the family of the 20-year-old victim, Caroline Crouch!
At the same time, we demand that the reflexes of the state be used immediately to ensure a wide response sent without wasting the right message, in any direction: Caroline's killer was NOT a very dangerous "Albanian" or "Georgian" criminal, etc.
Again, the Greek media does not miss the chance to cultivate with extraordinary will the stereotype of "foreign criminal, immigrant", acts that promote hatred and racism in Greek society.
We deeply condemn the horrific act of the 33-year-old killer, who for 37 days in a row played the role of the grieving husband.
We ask the Greek media to apologize to the public for repeated slander and manipulation, exploiting Albanians in Greece, with constant propaganda, without any official basis or information. It's been many years now, the time has come for this chapter to close once and for all, severely condemning any responsible author!
Let us not cultivate hatred in our society that is badly damaged, but where we can and should all coexist harmoniously. Let us be united against all forms of violence, the attack on the innocent and the vulnerable, the criminal act, for a more prosperous tomorrow for all!
