Parthenon Marbles: Greece to change strategy on repatriation

16 February, 09:39

    (ANSAmed) - ATHENS, FEBRUARY 16 - The new Greek government is considering a different strategy for claiming the Parthenon sculptures from the British Museum and will likely stop cooperating with Amal Alamuddin-Clooney and her law firm. The new Minister of Culture, Education and Religious Affairs Aristides Baltas - as GreekReporter website writes - told foreign reporters that Greece is seeking a new strategy to bring back the sculptures. He was quoted as saying, "Our campaign will continue, but the strategy and how we go about that may be tweaked, if required. We'll be looking over these details in the coming weeks and if we see a need to alter them, we will." Deputy Culture Minister Nikos Xydakis told the press that the marbles issue has gained good publicity after the involvement of Mrs. Clooney, who is a lawyer for London's Doughty Street Chambers law firm. According to the press, the new leftist government of Greece wants to cancel Greece's contract with Amal Alamuddin-Clooney and the firm for financial reasons. However, former Culture Minister Constantinos Tasoulas told the press that there is no signed contract between the previous Greek government and the law firm.(ANSAmed).
