Computer seizures reveal wealth of evidence against Golden Dawn

Investigating magistrates Ioanna Klappa and Maria Dimitropoulou, tasked with probing the activities of the far-right Golden Dawn party in order to determine whether it constitutes a criminal organization, are sifting through hundreds of files on four computers seized from the homes of party leader Nikos Michaliliakos, spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris and parliamentary deputies Yiannis Lagos and Nikos Michos, which allegedly contain damning evidence against the party, Kathimerini has learned.

According to sources, one of the computers contains a video of a speech by Michaloliakos - currently in pre-trial custody - dating from before the summer 2012 elections that swept the ultranationalist party into Parliament.

"They say that we, nationalists, are bad fascists. The truth is that they are not wrong. Our goal is not to improve those who are in Parliament today, to fix the political forces that are corrupt and at their end, but to finish them off, once and for all," Michaloliakos is allegedly seen as saying.

The seized material is also said to contain a plethora of files and photographs suggesting the party's neo-Nazi affiliations, which the ultranationalists have publicly denied, such as photographs of members giving the Nazi salute and posters imprinted with Nazi slogans.

In one video, a party member is allegedly seen telling a gathering of Golden Dawn supporters that they "have to kill the Jew hiding inside us."

Another party member swearing in new recruits is seen as saying: "Those who complain but won't get up off their couches are worms and we will crush them underfoot like worms." He adds: "Others swing between the left and right, but we don't care that they're swinging because they'll be swinging by their necks."
