Golden Dawn wants death penalty for violent migrants

Golden Dawn has called for the return of the death penalty for migrants found guilty of violent crimes and has pressed for the police force to be armed with heavier weapons.

In the statement, the far-right party noted that “immigrant assassins” had turned the country into a “jungle” and that the state was unable to handle them.

Military weapons were essential in order to combat the “heavily armed gangs of immigrant criminals,” Golden Dawn’s statement read.

Greece officially abolished the death penalty in 1993 though the last state execution was carried out in 1972.
