With protests, statements and requests that have reached Brussels, Greece demands the release of Fredi Beleri, even threatening to block the integration process for Albania.
The counter-reaction of the Albanian side that the requests and protests in Himare are pure interference in the justice system, the voices from Athens have responded with disdain.
However, the Greek authorities followed a different standard in the case of the arrest of 100 Croatian fans for the clashes with AEK fans, where a 29-year-old Greek was killed, and a different standard and attitude are followed in the case of Beler.
When the Croatian President, Zoran Milanovic declared that the detention of 100 Croatian fans beyond justice is Greece's revenge against them, the Greek authorities reacted furiously, considering this statement as interference in the justice system.
The Association of Judges and Prosecutors issued an official statement condemning the attitude of the Croatian President, which it says is offensive to Greek democracy. The association says that Greece has a consolidated tradition and legislation of respect for human rights.
But, in the case of Fredi Beleri, Greek officials in Brussels and Athens give themselves the right to prejudge a judicial process in Albania, consider it a violation of human rights and threaten integration with a veto.
