The AHEPAN Fall 2021 - 29

CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY
then-Supreme President George G. Horiates said. " The Turkey
and Ecumenical Patriarchate Religious Freedom Act of 2021
is important bipartisan legislation that will hold Turkey
accountable for its intolerance and abysmal religious freedom
record. AHEPA applauds and proudly supports the legislation
introduced by U.S. Representatives Carolyn Maloney and Gus
Bilirakis. I commend them for their leadership to recognize
the United States can do more to hold Turkey accountable for
its persecution of religious minorities by adopting the recommendations
presented in the U.S. Commission on International
Religious Freedom's 2021 report on Turkey. "
He added, " We appreciate the support from each of the
co-sponsors. We call for Congress to pass the bill swiftly and
ask the community to raise its collective voice to encourage
Congress to do so. Please ask your U.S. representative to become
a co-sponsor of the legislation. "
Congressional Resolution
to Make Cyprus a Foreign
Policy Priority Applauded
AHEPA applauded the
May 7, 2021, introduction
of bipartisan-backed
legislation by U.S. Rep.
Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY)
that condemns Turkey
for its illegal occupation
of Cyprus and encourages
the Administration
to make the resolution
of this problem a top foreign
policy priority.
" The near 47-year
illegal invasion and subsequent
occupation of the Republic of Cyprus, a U.S. strategic
partner and EU-member nation, by Turkey, a failed
NATO-member country under the Erdogan regime, remains
to this day an unacceptable act; one that is a gross violation
of the rule of law, human rights, and democratic ideals, "
then-Supreme President George G. Horiates said. " We commend
Congresswoman Malliotakis for her leadership as the
lead sponsor of this important and timely bipartisan-backed
www.ahepa.org
resolution that calls for the Administration to prioritize ending
Turkey's illegal occupation of Cyprus. We also thank the legislation's
original co-sponsors, and we call for its swift passage. It
is time for the Turkish government's intransigence, and its antiquated
and objectionable positions on the Cyprus issue, to come
to an end. "
The legislation, H.Res.376, has 13 co-sponsors.
Board Chairman Karacostas, then-Supreme President Horiates,
Hellenic Caucus Co-Chair U.S. Rep. Maloney, and Ahepans
Anastasios Stampolis and Paul Macropoulos.
AHEPA, PSEKA team up
again on Varosha Illegal
Reopening
Then-Supreme President George G. Horiates extended the
Order's appreciation to U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, co-chair
of the Congressional Hellenic Caucus, for her June 24, 2021,
letter to U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, urging the
Administration to speak out " against the unilateral and illegal
actions of the Republic of Turkey concerning the 'reopening'
of Varosha on Cyprus. "
Horiates, along with Ahepans that included then-Supreme
Treasurer Savas Tsivicos and Chairman of the Board
of Trustees Nick Karacostas, PSP, met with U.S. Rep. Maloney
in New York, June 21, 2021. AHEPA teamed-up with PSEKA
President Philip Christopher, who is also an Ahepan, and
other community leaders to raise awareness and immediate
concern about the illegal reopening of Varosha by Turkey.
