Golden Dawn protests migrants' detention at Corinth army camp

An MP and dozens of supporters of neofascist Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) have attempted to prevent police from detaining some 400 immigrants in the grounds of an army camp in Corinth, west of Athens.

Officers escorted the migrants to the camp after an early morning operation that was part of the Xenios Zeus campaign to tackle illegal immigration. Almost 11,000 migrants have been detained since the clampdown began earlier this month, leading to nearly 2,000 arrests.

Golden Dawn MP Efstathios Boukouras and dozens of the partys supporters protested the transfer of the detained migrants to the camp, which is active.

In a statement, the ultranationalist party said it opposed military facilities being turned into tourism centers for illegal immigrants.

Local mayor Alekos Pnevmatikos has called a meeting of the municipal council on Thursday evening to discuss the matter. There were unconfirmed reports that Corinth Municipality cut off the camps water supply and is refusing to collect its garbage.
