Court for Greek Golden Dawners



    Golden Down crimesSurrounded by heavily-armed anti-terrorist police, four Members of Parliament from Greece’s neo-Nazi  Golden Dawn  party rounded up with a group of other leaders and members charged with operating a criminal gang appeared in an Athens court on Oct. 1 for a preliminary hearing.

    Despite appeals for their masses to turn out, only a few dozen Golden Dawn supporters wanly waved as their leaders were shepherded into the court. Another three lower-ranking party members appeared before an examining magistrate earlier in the day and two were released.

    The party’s top leadership, including its head, are among 22 people arrested in a crackdown after the fatal stabbing on Sept. 17 of a Greek anti-fascist rap singer. Arrest warrants have been issued for another 10 people.

    The four party members brought to court were party spokesman Ilias Kassidiaris, Ilias Panagiotaros, Yiannis Lagos and Nikos Mihos.  The party leader, Nikos Michaloliakos, is to appear in court for his deposition on Oct. 2, while second-in-command Christos Pappas heads there the day after.

    Golden Dawn rose from obscurity to become Greece’s third most popular party in 2012 when it won 18 seats in Parliament on the back of anti-immigrant stance and its opposition to a bailout plan from international lenders that came with harsh austerity measures.

    Party members and even lawmakers have frequently been accused in the past of being behind numerous violent attacks, mostly against dark-skinned migrants. NGO’s said they’ve recorded hundreds of such assaults.

    Golden Dawn angrily denied any involvement in the violence. It also rejects the neo-Nazi label, although it plays the Nazi anthem at party events and makes heavy use of Nazi slogans — translated into Greek.  Police searches of senior party officials’ homes turned up illegal firearms, posters of Adolf Hitler, and assorted Nazi memorabilia.

    Photos released by police show party Parliamentary spokesman Christos Pappas had turned his country home into a Nazi and fascist shrine, with items including a Waffen SS poster and helmet, an Adolf Hitler street-sign, a toy Nazi flag-bearer, swastikas galore and wine bottles labeled with photos of Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini.

    1. From the first issue of Golden Dawn’s magazine: “We consider politics a filthy affair and ourselves too pure to be involved in it,”

      in 1993 the Supreme Court allowed the registration of the party whose founding statement clearly states that “the democratic way of governance has no place in our movement.”

      Golden Dawn was elected in June 2012 but it was not until August that the party submitted a proper charter to the Supreme Court.

      There are questions to be asked about how and why the Supreme Court allowed this organisation to stand as a proper party. And then there need to be elections with only proper political parties standing.

    2. Sigmund Freud is credited as being the father of the Sexual Revolution. He sated repeatedly that he found sexual morality “contemptible.” In fact Freud was a Jewish supremacist and Stalwart Zionist who saw himself like Hannibal conquering Rome (Rome signifying the Church and European morality).This video show how the Jewish dominated media has promoted a destruction of higher human values. It shows from mainstream Jewish sources how resentment against Europeans and Christians is a motivating factor in promoting sexual degeneration and even pornography.

    3. JEWISH PAEDOPHILE Demands the Outlawing of Golden Dawn!

      The Jewish co-chair of the Greens/European Free Alliance in the European Parliament, Daniel Cohn-Bendit, has called for the outlawing of Golden Dawn. In a statement made to the press he said: “In a democracy, when a political party contains a military group responsible for violence, assaults, and murder, it is a big reason but also an obligation to ban this party”

      Who exactly is this flamboyant and eccentric Daniel Cohn Bendit condemning Golden Dawn? In a book released in 1975, titled Le Grand Bazar (The Grand Bazaar), Mr Cohn Bendit writes of his experience AS A LEFTIST ACTIVIST in Germany working in the Karl-Marx-Buchhandlung bookshop, while simultaneously running a kindergarten for children between 5 and 8 years of age. A quote from the book confessing his grooming and sexual abuse of children is as follows :

      “My flirtations with all children soon acquired a definitely erotic character. I could sense how young girls aged five had already learned how to get off with me…”

      “On several occasions certain kids would open my fly and start to stroke me. I reacted differently according to circumstances, but their desire posed a problem for me. I asked them: “Why don’t you play together? Why have you chosen me, and not the other kids?” But if they insisted, I caressed them still.” Daniel Cohn-Bendit, 1975, Le Grand Bazar

      In a 1982 interview broadcast on French television, Cohn Bendit stated that he finds it wonderful when a 5 year old girl begins to undress, and that it is a “crazy love game”.

      Cohn-Bendit continued to dodge the numerous accusations of pedophilia lodged against him, with a letter written by some of the parents whose children were reportedly present in the kindergarten released in 2001, claiming there was no sexual assault, and they were sure Cohn Bendit did not their molest children.

      But this line of defense was then debunked: the author and initiator of the defense letter, Mrs. Thea Vogel, later told German media that she had written the letter for political purposes (to defend Cohn-Bendit against mounting accusations of child molestation regarding events 26 years earlier), that in fact she had never read the controversial passages in his book, and that her son never even attended the kindergarten where Cohn-Bendit reported his “erotic experiences”. The whole letter was a scam!

      Regardless of these revelations the accusations of pedophilia (which he has not directly denied or condemned) against him are covered by an outrageous veil of mystery, which does not seem to be of interest to the main regulators and “ethicists” of the European Union. What is true and proven for sure, is that Cohn-Bendit’s Green party in Germany agitated for years to normalize and legalize pedophilia, incest, and beastiality, along of course with homosexuality. Cohn-Bendit has made statements referring to the sexualization of small children as part of the Freudian/Marcusian “sexual revolution” of 1968.

      It is time to take a hard look at the individuals who today are sitting in judgment, utilizing fallacy and slander, of Golden Dawn. Beware of those who hide beneath the cloak of “human rights” and masquerade as “ecologists”, as these European Union elites railing against Golden Dawn often have biographies rife with extreme mental perversions and unspeakable acts of cruelty against the most innocent and defenceless.

    4. The prosecutions accusations against Golden Dawn were studied by prominent independent legal expert M. Dimitrakopoulos, who concluded that the case will collapse with a loud thud. It is worth noting that M. Dimitrakopoulos first stated that he follows a Leftist ideology, is completely opposed to Golden Dawn and has many Jewish friends. The video has already received 278000 views since the TV interview was uploaded to you tube on September 28th!
      The message is spreading across Greece that Greece’s Leading Expert on Criminal Law condemns the arrest of Golden Dawn MP’s and confirms that the charges are flimsy and will not be sufficient to classify Golden Dawn as a criminal organization, nor to convict it’s MP’s!

      Ο γνωστός ποινικολόγος Μιχάλης Δημητρακόπουλος έδωσε νωρίτερα μια νέα τροπή στην υπόθεση των συλλήψεων του αρχηγού της Χρυσής Αυγής Νίκου Μιχαλολιάκου και βουλευτών του κόμματος. Με παρέμβασή του στο δελτίο του ΑΝΤ1 και αφού πρώτα τόνισε ότι είναι Αριστερός, αποκάλυψε ότι δεν στέκουν νομικά οι διώξεις κατά του Γ.Γ. και των βουλευτών της Χρυσής Αυγής για σύσταση «εγκληματικής οργάνωσης».

    5. Yes we will see.
      On Golden Dawn radio yesterday the daughter of GD leader Nikos Michaloliakos said the charges which Golden Dawn MP’s are accused of will not stand in court . She said there is a license for the weapons confiscated and that most of the “witnesses” that the prosecution intends to use can not prove their credibility. Furthermore a lot of documents that are supposed to prove Golden Dawn is a terrorist organization are actually FORGED .To top it all off she emphasised that the supposed phone conversations between Golden Dawn MP’s recorded by the Greek secret services actually prove the innocence of G.D rather than the opposite.

    6. As you said above. We will see. One thing is certain. If the prosecution of Golden Dawn collapses, then the corrupt governing coalition is finished and Golden Dawns popularity will skyrocket. Enjoy the spectacle for the time being. It may turn out to be sour grapes for you anti-Golden Dawn crowd.
      I suspect that it will.

    7. “Well-known criminal lawyer Paul Sarakis, who undertook the defense of Golden Dawn party spokesman, and MP, Ilias Kassidiaris, was surprisingly ousted as a party member of New Democracy following a decision from its Central Ethics
      Committee.”

      “…Sarakis notes that one of the reasons Kassidiaris was
      targeted was because the “establishment” is afraid that he will win the position of Athens mayor -since the GD MP has declared that he will run for this position- at the upcoming municipal elections…”

    8. Nothing at all, I think the recent news might have resulted in a loss of mental control on his part

    9. good riddance. nazis are not welcome in Greece

      when’s ND/PASOK (the other germanotsoliades) next?

    10. This MSLies is full of crap. You do realize that you sound.like a schizo and psychopath. I suggest you visit a doctor to treat your disease. Your Golden Dawn leader and his daughter are nothing but fat useless pigs with a mouth full of crap that simply are only interested in the benefit of themselves. I suggest you tell them to get on a fitness program and do something for themselves since its obvious they cant do nothing for Greek society then waste its time with crap ideologies and yell like maniacs on camera.

    11. he’s possibly the founder(s) of XA NYC. once his real name gets linked to his MSMlies name (and his other name PhoenixRisingEuropa and his previously banned name ExposeHypocrisy) he can kiss any employment opportunities goodbye forever. he is a nazi psychopath

    12. Greek Reporter could find out from his IP address. I have exposed people using fake identities etc on my site very easily. Many comments here cross the line from just being opinions to being racist, antisemitic homophobic and advocating violence. This I do find unacceptable on a news site.

    13. i honestly don’t think they care. they clearly have no problem exposing themselves to legal liability associated with allowing holocaust denying racist nazis like MSMlies and their ilk from stormfront spewing their hatred, lies (oh the irony!) and ignorance all over their website.

    14. I take it you despise the Communists ten times more than you hate Nazis seeing as they murdered ten times more people and the Nazis copied everything they did from the commies.

      If not, that makes you a holocaust denier of the worst kind. A denier of the commie holocaust.

    15. Communists burned a pregnant woman alive in Greece a couple of years ago. Why weren’t all members of SYRIZA and the KKE arrested for that and why weren’t those parties banned?

    16. yay let’s play the numbers game of who killed more to make ourselves feel better about supporting one or the other. they are both awful, but the reason for my hate of golden dawn nazis is that XA’s connection to nazis is way more pronounced than any other parties’ to commies. not to mention the nazis killed more Greeks than the commies and the Greek civil war was caused by the nazis in the ensuing power vacuum and then by the british. i despise both

      what is it with you fascists and commies thinking that 2 wrongs make a right?

    17. I’m no fascist, I hate both equally, I just see a lot of people condemning fascism (rightly so!) yet ignoring communist parties whose supporters have rioted and committed terrorist murders.

      I regard both ideologies as totalitarian and oppressive. But most people seem fixated on only one and many more seem to sympathize with the other.

    18. fair enough

      there’s a difference between condemning nazism and fascism.

      not sure which terrorist murders you’re referring to

    19. “Communists burned a pregnant woman alive in Greece a couple of years ago”

      source? was it a hit from the top like with the Paulos? how do you know which political group they belonged too? who was arrested (other than the bank supervisors)? you know golden dawn members have been caught attacking banks right?

    20. UPDATE: Prosecutors and investigators came to an agreement, Kasidiaris was released on bail, while Panagiotaros and Michos were released without bail, but all 3 are banned from exiting the country for the time being. John Lagos is still being held likely for political reasons.

      A win for Golden Dawn!

    21. so where in your entire article does it mention that the perpetrators are commies or any political group for that matter? oh what’s that? nowhere – just more lies and assumptions without any evidence by stormfront nazis. not to mention your article at the end lays the blame at the nd/pasok traitors and the only people arrested in the incident and found guilty thus far are the bank supervisors who failed to institute any security measures and locked down the bank to the point that no one could escape. show me some hard evidence. i don’t like lies and assumptions

      During the Cypriot “bailout” negotiations, a Cyprus Bank building was firebombed, police went after two suspects and – surprise, surprise – found guns, knives, bats and Golden Dawn paraphernalia in their homes

      But it’s the case of the Sparta bomber that is the most worrying yet. On the 31st of August last year, a bomb blew up in the hands of a 38-year-old man in Sparta. His target remains unknown. The bomber’s accomplice, an as yet unidentified 34-year-old man, was arrested but released after testifying, despite the fact that 60 more bombs, shotguns and masks were found in his house by the police. Since then, no more information has been released and the Greek media have buried the story.

      Reports from Sparta identify both the dead man and his accomplice as members of the local Golden Dawn charter, suggesting Greece’s far-right are turning to terrorism to get their message across.
