Albanian Newspapers Claim Goumas’ Death an “Accident”

According to Albanian newspapers, the Public Prosecutor’s office found that expatriate, Aristotelis Goumas, was not murdered. On the contrary, he died because of a car accident caused by himself. The fact is that on the 12th of August 2010, in Himare, a group of Albanian nationalists attacked Goumas and murdered him because he used to speak Greek.  At the beginning, the crime was condemned by the Albanian judicial and political power. Nevertheless, after nine months of invastigations the murder was deemed an accident. Within this scope, representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Greece seem to be concerned and stated they will attend the proceedings, and are ready to intervene, whenever it is necessary.
