Muslim Association of Greece receives letter containing sick threats

The Muslim Association of Greece (MAG) has asked authorities to investigate a letter sent to its head offices in Neos Cosmos, central Athens, threatening violence against Muslims in Greece if they “don’t shut down their brothels and go to hell” by June 30.

The letter, which was unsigned but typed on paper bearing the insignia of the extreme-right Golden Dawn party, says – in Greek, English and Arabic – that “from July 1 onwards those who are still here will be slaughtered like chickens on the road.”

MAG called on authorities to “ensure that all citizens can enjoy equality in the eyes of the law and that we are not prey to every asymmetric threat.”
