Extra case file on Golden Dawn offenses sent to Supreme Court

Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias on Tuesday sent a supplementary case file to the Supreme Court with offenses attributed to ultra-right Golden Dawn.

The offenses, which are in addition to a list of 32 sent last week, include an attack on members of the Communist Party (KKE) in Perama by far-rightists and a list of other alleged offenses supplied by the leftist SYRIZA MP Manolis Glezos.

Meanwhile Supreme Court prosecutors were listening to the testimonies of witnesses to offenses linked to Golden Dawn. On Tuesday afternoon, representatives of political parties represented in Greece’s Parliament were to be summoned for testimony.

Officers of the police’s internal affairs division on Tuesday visited the police precinct in Nikaia, close to the spot where the leftist hip-hop artist Pavlos Fyssas was killed by supporter of the ultra-right Golden Dawn last week, as well as police precincts in Kaminia and Renti, as part of a police probe into possible links between the police and Golden Dawn.

The searches at the Kamina and Renti precincts did not turn up anything suspicious, sources said, though in Nikaia there are claims by Pakistani nationals that police officers allowed them to sell contraband cigarettes on the condition that they gave them some of their profits.
