The Special Court of Tirana will decide on Monday whether Fredi Beleri, the recently-elected ethnic Greek mayor of Himare in southern Albania, and his aide Panteli Kokavesi will be released or if their pretrial detention will continue, sources in the Albanian capital said on Friday.

On Thursday, Theocharis Lalakos, the secretary-general of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, met with Beleri to assess the conditions of his detention and his health status.

The outcome of Monday’s decision will determine the next steps regarding the official assumption of the mayor’s duties by Beleri.

The case is currently under the jurisdiction of the Anti-Corruption and Organized Crime Structure (SPAK).
