Teacher forced to say sorry over Golden Dawn threat to pupils

A teacher at a junior high school in Neapoli, central Athens, has been forced to apologize to his students, all from non-Greek backgrounds, after threatening to call the far-right Golden Dawn political party to discipline them.

The incident occurred three weeks ago, when the teacher, who arrived at the school this year, got into an argument with his pupils.

The school principal asked the teacher to apologize to his class.

He is now facing an Education Ministry investigation.
