In Greece, as years pass by, the reactions against the Albanian government increased. The Metropolitan of Dryinoupolis, Pogoniani and Konitsa Mr. Sevastianos, supported by P.A.N.E.R. – ΠΑ.ΣΥ.Β.Α. and S.C.C.N.E.R. – Σ.Φ.Ε.Β.Α., traveled around Greece, made appeals to International Organizations, organized conferences to awaken consciences, but also offering love and affection to hundreds of Northern Epirot and Albanian fugitives. And he was doing all this, while the official Greek State turned a deaf ear to the tragedy, keeping silent before the crimes committed, and moreover, trying to silence every voice of protest against Hozha’s regime.
