KINAL’s Gennimata remembers Melina Mercouri

KINAL leader Fofi Gennimata recalled Greek cultural icon Melina Mercouri on Wednesday, on the 25th anniversary of the former Culture Minister’s death, saying she was “an outstanding Greek woman, a dreamer, a fighter against the dictatorship, a film and theatre actress and a promoter of the returns of the Parthenon sculptures.”

In a statement, Gennimata said she had been “especially fortunate” to listen to the long conversations Melina had had with her father, late PASOK minister Giorgos Gennimatas and to “see their passion for Greece, for culture, for change.”
