Greek Neo-Nazis Threaten Journalists


The electronic version of the German newspaper Spiegel published an article denouncing the fact that the Greek neo-Nazi Golden Dawn political party has filed complaints against journalists in Greece.

After the revelations that followed the murder of the anti-fascist hip-hop artist, Pavlos Fyssas, by the Golden Dawn member, Giorgos Roupakias in Keratsini, Attica, Greece, a number of 14 journalists, TV channel chiefs, commentators and analysts, have received complaints by the neo-Nazi party.

“Attacks by far-right extremists: Greek neo-Nazis threaten journalists,” is the title of the article. The German newspaper referred to the complaints that Nikos Mihaloliakos’ party filed against journalists.

Statements by Maria Psara, reporter in the Greek newspaper To Ethnos, who brought to publicity an interview by a former Golden Dawn member that reveals the paramilitary organization of the far-right party, were reported in the article.

“The journalist Maria Psara, told Spiegel Online from an undetermined location that after the publicizing of the interview of a former Golden Dawn member, she and her colleague are receiving threats by Golden Dawn supporters,” the article writes.

“The party considered the interview as provocation, because it originates from a former member of the party, to which the murderer, Giorgos Roupakias, belongs,” it continues. “The party has denied any involvement in the crime and claims that the interview is fake,” as reported in Spiegel.
