Key witness takes stand at Golden Dawn trial

The Golden Dawn trial continued on Thursday with a friend of Pavlos Fyssas, the anti-racist hip hop artist who was stabbed to death by a neo-Nazi member in September 2013, taking the stand. Pavlos Seirlis appeared in court after the testimony of Fyssas’s sister, Irini, was interrupted earlier in the day.

Seirlis is a key witness in the case, as he and Fyssas were part of a group of friends allegedly attacked by Golden Dawn members and supporters outside a cafeteria in Keratsini, near Piraeus, on September 18, 2013. On Thursday, Seirlis insisted that the group had no issues with the neo-Nazi party prior to the attack.

The witness recognized a number of defendants as members of the group which attacked them and said he believed the attack was premeditated.
