Collateral Hellenic Territory

The Collateral Hellenic Territory was an administrative unit with no defined territory, located in the Hellenic Republic. It encompassed 1 hectare of land, with an undefined location. Its legal base was a Retroactive Unilateral Agreement with the Hellenic Republic, triggered by the Default of the Hellenic Republic on 2012-03-09 on bonds owned by institutions and citizens of the Federated Micronations.

The Federated Micronations administered the CHT via the Provisional Authority of the Collateral Hellenic Territories (PACHT). After the Musogradian "Protectorate" revolution in December 2015, popular support for the Greek Republic grew within the Federated Micronations, leading to the decision to rescind the claims on the territory and to disband PACHT. The claims have now been frozen and the disbandmend of PACHTwas completed on 2017.01.01.

Postal Services for the CHT were provided by Capricornia Post. Formally served by Capricornia Post until 2015-05-29, CPEA opened the CHT Agency on 2015.05.30, issuing stamps denominated in Euro. The stamps were not used in the territory itself, but only as Service stamps for the PACHT organisation. In preparation for the disbanding of PACHT, the CHT Agency was merged on 2016.07.01 into the Mediterranean Services organisation which provides postal services as a Mobile Agency in the Mediterranean area.

All stamps issued by the CHT Agency remained valid within the Mediterranean Services ageny until 2019.12.31. They will continue to be sold via the philatelic service of Capricornia Post at 50% of the nominal value. The CHT cancellation stamp was used only until the merge with CPEA Mediterranean Services.
