Shocking charges on Nikos Kotzias: Greece financed Albanian portals

 The Greek foreign ministry has financed with secret funds Albanian media and journalists in order "to provide positive publications about Greece, to create a lobby for Albanian journalists in the country, in order the heads of media to support the Greece's interest.

This is the "shocking" publication by the Greek journalist Dhimitris Takis in iefimerida.gr.

According to him, with this fact is also related the fierce debate between Defense Minister Panos Kamenos and Nikos Kotzias, already a former foreign minister at the meeting of the ministerial council a few days ago, the debate that caused the resignation of Minister Kotzias.

According to Takis, a week before this debate, on October 10, Wednesday, the document classified secret  with three codes passed to the Greek Parliament for approval. The total amount of the fund almost 1 million Euros was allocated for payments to the media in Albania and to the media in Macedonia, and another fund to support the Orthodox Churches of Orthodoxy in general.

As for media coverage in Albania, the report states that MPs were given the explanation: "To ensure positive publications about Greece's image and the creation of the lobby of Albanian journalists in the country, as well as media heads to support Greece's interests" .

Greece's Foreign Ministry has not determined where the money was actually distributed in Albania. Meanwhile, both Greek Parliament Speaker and Greek Prime Minister reacted against the report, referring each party to the transparency of Kotzi's work and the right to secret funds but could not deny the concrete document and the fund invested for the media. The Kamenos-Kotzias debate, triggered by the latter, has highlighted Kamenos's accusation that 45m euros have been awarded by the Soros Foundation to close the Prespa deal.

It was precisely this accusation and the neutral reaction of Prime Minister Tsipras that caused nervousness to Minister Kotzias, who considers it slander and political assault. Finally, Minister Kamenos has accused openly and the newspaper "Efimerida ton syntakton" for Soros's propaganda funding.
