Concerning the trial of "Rainbow" members in Florina, the Coalition's Press Office stresses that:
The trial against "Rainbow" members to be held in Florina on 14/10 is based on article 192 of the Penal Code, which is a residue of the civil war and the abolition of which the Coalition has asked for since 1992.
Such trials violate freedom of expression and aggravate rather than solve the problems.
Our country must respect the OSCE Treaties, as well as the Council of Europe's Convention on minority rights which she has signed.
