In collaboration with special committees dedicated to the cause across the world, Greek-Australians are prepared to file a lawsuit against Great Britain with regards to the return of the Parthenon Marbles. Greeks of the Diaspora are trying hard to press the British government to return these valuable examples of Greece’s stolen cultural heritage.
The announcement was made during the London International Colloquy on the matter. Undisclosed evidence advancing the existing ethical and legal argument for the return of the marbles was presented during the colloquy, where three campaigning organizations for the Parthenon Marbles from the UK, USA and Australia convened in a historic unified effort.
Among the attorneys dealing with the appeal is Greek-American Michael Repas, Giorgos Bizos from S. Africa ( Nelson Mandela’s lawyer as well) and Greek-Australian Victor Bizanis.
Bizanis expressed the view that the Greek defense should be represented by successful London-based Australian lawyer Jeffry Robertson, who has won a trial for the Aborigines of Tasmania in the past.
