Thessaloniki doctor arrested over ‘Jews not welcome’ sign

A 57-year-old doctor from Nea Michanonia, Thessaloniki, was released on Sunday by a prosecutor pending his trial after being arrested over a sign outside a surgery he used stating: “Jews not welcome.”

The doctor denies putting up the sign. He said it was put there while he was away. The surgery he is using belongs to Thermaikos Municipality.

However, on searching his home police found three daggers, two of which bore Nazi symbols. They also found photographs of Adolf Hitler and other Nazi paraphernalia. Newspapers and magazines published by Golden Dawn were also located.

The doctor who works with the EOPYY healthcare provider has been bailed until a date for his trial is set.
