Rapper killer’s sister testifies brother is a ‘calm man’

The sister of Giorgos Roupakias who has confessed to the fatal stabbing of anti-fascist rapper Pavlos Fyssas, described her brother as a “calm man” during testimony as a witness at the trial of Golden Dawn’s leadership.

“He did not have any differences with anyone… He was not aggressive,” she told the court. She claimed her brother used his knife out of fear after coming under attack by a group of people before the fatal stabbing of Fyssas.

She added that he did not have any particular familiarity with knives. Meanwhile, a man was arrested outside the courthouse in possession of a knife, but it remained unclear Friday what his intentions were.
