About Festim Lato

Festim Lato is the president of the Republic of Chameria. He was born in Vlore, Albania from a family who fled from Chameria during the last years of World War II.

For many years it has been his personal mission to restore the rights and dignity of the Cham people who have been a victim of historical crimes and injustice.

The president believes in international dialogue, so that through political and diplomatic means we can reach our goal of a free and prosperous Chameria.

In order to gain freedom and justice for the Cham people he actively engages with the international community and is in contact with representatives of many governments to get the “Cham Issue” on the agenda.

On 3 October 2017 President Festim Lato became an officially recognized diplomat at the United Nations with the diplomatic rank of Director of Western Balkan Affairs.
