Message of Condolence from Lina Mendoni
“The loss of Eleni Cubitt, an important person who fought passionately for many years for the repatriation of the Parthenon Sculptures, is great. Both as a founding member and as general secretary of the British Committee for the Reunification of the Parthenon sculptures (BCRPM), she was one of the people that gave life and force to the campaign. With her husband, James Cubitt, they took the message of Greece’s righteous struggle for the reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures to the world. Her action had decisive importance. We will miss her forceful personality. I express my sincere condolences to her family and many friends,” the Minister of Culture and Sports said in her message.
