Indictment against Golden Dawn read out in court


None of Golden Dawn’s senior officials showed up in the specially designed courtroom at Athens’s Korydallos Prison Monday as prosecutor Adamantia Economou spent more than five hours reading out the over-1,000-page indictment against Greece’s neofascist party.

Monday’s session wrapped up procedural matters as judges ruled out all remaining objections from GD’s defense team. The trial is scheduled to resume on September 29 with a testimony from the parents of murdered rapper Pavlos Fyssas.

Monday’s indictment described attacks against migrants, raids on anarchist hangouts, illegal acts by members of GD, as well as the establishment of a criminal organization along Nazi-inspired paramilitary lines.
