 Abedin Rakipi, a Cham by origin, is a writer and researcher who has published recently an article related to Cham Issue in his blog as a reaction against a statement that Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos made last week, relating to the Cham Issue, where in a few words he maintains the old stances by considering the Chams as collaborators of Nazi. As a consequence this declarations sparked the reaction of the Albanian President Ilir Meta

However, among other things, Rakipi writes:

 The historical sources of historians, eyewitnesses, and Greek military are overwhelmed with evidence and testimony of the massacre that Chameria Muslims experienced.

More and more resources also assert that British officers encouraged Zerva to expel the Chams from their homes.

The Colonel Chris Woodhouse at the same time as the head of the British military mission in Greece reports: "Encouraged by the Allied Mission I directed Zeva to drive the Chams out of their homes" (Viranda Vickers, The Cham issue). The same officer wrote again in an official report on 1945: "The Chams deserved what they suffered, but the methods of Zerva were very brutal." (PRP / FO, 371/48094).

But what is the most terrible is a testimony of the Greek colonel Nikos Ziangos, who reported one of the massive massacres made to little children in Chameria.

Greek historian and Greek colonel N. Ziangos in his book: The Muslim Chams of Epirus (1923-2000), IMXA, Thessaloniki, republished in 2004.

On page 259, says: "During the massacre in June 1944 in a house in Paramythia are massacred 30 children under 3 years old ...."
