On Sunday 16 December 2018 The elections of the Association of Furriers Siatista "The Prophet Elias" took place.
During the elections, The participation of fellow furriers was very great, proving that our industry, despite the difficult conditions it is facing, remains strong and united..
We participated in the electoral process primarily as Furriers and secondarily as Breeders, as we fight for the common interest of all colleagues and the verticalization of the industry.
The next day, that is, on Monday 17 December 2018, local websites rushed to come up with untrue news and personal conclusions, in order to create impressions and sow weeds in our industry, for reasons I do not even want to think about.
Obviously the journalists who wrote it, they do not know how Furriers and Breeders are one and we fight as a team for the interests of our industry.
As President of the Panhellenic Association of Fur Breeders and Vice President of the Hellenic Fur Federation, I condemn the untrue publications which clearly express only the personal views of the article writer..
I also want to emphasize that the Breeders do not intend to regulate the election result in the next elections of E.O.G., but to exercise their legal right to vote.
I am particularly sorry for the fact that for personal interests - whatever they are- strange reports are published which do not correspond to reality.
The positive thing is that this is an isolated case, which I am sure people do not take seriously.
The President of the Panhellenic Association of Fur Breeders
and Vice President of the Hellenic Fur Federation
