A hotel owned by the wife of neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party Nikos Michaloliakos, who is opposed to austerity measures being imposed by the government, will be confiscated because she hasn’t paid 36,000 euros ($48,000) in outstanding taxes, the newspaper Kathimerini reported.
The firm that owns the Hotel New Dream is managed by Michaloliakos’s wife, Eleni Zaroulia, who is also a Golden Dawn Member of Parliament, and her brother. The two are also reportedly having their tax statements being investigated to see if there are any improprieties.
Golden Dawn won 18 seats in the Parliament last year on the back of a vehemently anti-immigrant platform. The hotel is located in a neighborhood near a large concentration of immigrants. The party is opposed to pay cuts, tax hikes and slashed pensions being imposed on the orders of international lenders.
Despite fierce objections to her depiction of immigrants as “sub-human,” she was given a seat on a human rights organization panel for the European Union. Her party wants all illegal immigrants in Greece rounded up and deported, wants rights for legal immigrants to be curtailed, and supports a Greeks-only policy for medical attention, schools and other sectors.
