Directs the excavations/ David Hernandez: Butrint is Greek, there is no trace of

The deputy of the Democratic Party, Ina Zhupa, held a statement for the media from the headquarters of this political force about the concession of Butrint.

In a statement to the media, Zhupa said that the concession company has selected David Hernandez to continue the excavations in Butrint, although the case is in the Constitutional Court.

"It's been about a year and a half since, as a legislator of the Democratic Party, I objected with arguments to the concession of Butrint, precisely because of the danger that comes to our identity and history, leaving it in the hands of the private foundation and the researchers they choose. The concession of Butrint is today in the Constitutional Court, but this does not stop the concessionaire AADF in the form of the foundation, to choose who will excavate and continue with the excavations in the ancient city.

Finally, David Hernandez is selected. For those to whom this name means nothing, I want to let you know that this is a Cuban researcher, and one of the primary authors selected by the AADF, on the Butrint management plan. Of course, the famous anti-Albanian student Richard Hodges, who as a member of the board of directors, continues with his theses against Albanians", she said.

The deputy published a video, where David Hernandez said that in Butrint there is no trace of our ancestors, the local populations known as Kaons or Prasaibs.

According to him, Butrint is Greek, as it was populated by a Greek colony.

"According to Hernandez, who has been excavating in Butrint for a long time, in this ancient city there is no trace of the local populations known as Kaons or Prasaibs. So according to him, there is no trace of our ancestors.

He says it is nothing more than a Greek colony where everything was Greek and came from the sea. Rightfully asked by Mema about the fate of the natives, Hernandes says that the natives simply came and went with sheep in an all-Greek city. So we are shepherds and Butrint is Greek. The same theory that Richard Hodges tries to prove and exalt. A big untruth and anti-Albanian attitude without any historical evidence.

Both of these, but also others who choose them, with the powers that Hodges has on the board of directors of the foundation, try to interpret every finding according to their anti-Albanian school, to distort reality, misuse power and rewrite the history of Albanians ", underlined Zhupa./ CNA.al
