The researches for the treasure of the Albanian Pasha have started in the small village of Vassiliki, 350 kilometers north of Athens, and they are being supported by the local authorities as well.
All historic information show that Ali Pashe Tepelena’s treasure really exists. But if it is found, its proprietor should be defined by an international court.
Historian Sabri Godo, the author of the book on this important personality, comments with these words the Greek researches for this fairytale treasure, which is thought to reach to 30 tons of gold and jewelry.
“If we want to find the treasure, we should think the way Ali did. According to me, the safest place for him was Tepelena. Let’s suppose that we will find a treasure; the decision should be left in the hands of an international court. Ali was an Albanian, and if he does not have a direct heir, then the treasure should pass to the municipality of Tepelena,” said Godo.

According to Mayor Vaios Ziakas, the head of this expedition possesses an historic document for the location of the treasure.
But which is Godo’s thought on this issue?
“According to the law, the person who finds a treasure has a right over it. He can ask a reward, but it can not become his property only because he occasionally found the treasure,” said Godo.
