Evidence found on the computers of jailed Golden Dawn party leader Nikos Michaloliakos and party spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris, who are among those facing charges of operating a criminal gang, show them denouncing democracy and being involved in paramilitary training that could be enough to bring charges of treason against them, it was reported.

It was discovered by technicians from deleted files and the newspaper Kathimerini, citing sources it didn’t identify, said officials believe the evidence is strong enough to bring additional charges against the party leaders and members. Michaloliakos and two other of his 18 Members of Parliament, are in detention while three others have also been charged among more than two dozen party zealots arrested.

It was said that the material includes speeches given by Michaloliakos and Kasidiaris exhorting the overthrow of the government of the New Democracy Conservatives of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and his partner, PASOK Socialist chief Evangelos Venizelos, who is Deputy Premier/Foreign Minister.

Coupled with the evidence suggesting party supporters trained like members of a paramilitary organization and supported Nazi principles, the evidence could be enough for magistrates to bring charges under Article 135 of the penal code, which deals with cases of treason.

Much of the digital evidence gathered from the homes of Michaloliakos and contained dozens of videos and photos that could prove incriminating for the party, which denies being sympathetic to Nazi ideology and using violence.

Images leaked to the media show Kasidiaris brandishing a number of firearms in photographs, including an AK-47 which is unlawful in Greece, and leading paramilitary-style training of Golden Dawn members. There are also pictures of Golden Dawn members performing Nazi salutes and one wearing a Ku Klux Klan outfit.

Kasidiaris said the photos showed him “exercising” and questioned whether there were any objections to him training so that he does not end up “obese like Venizelos,” a reference to the heavyset Venizelos.

As for the KKK-style hoods, Ilias Panayiotaros, who faces trial on criminal charges along with Kasidiaris and several other neo-fascist deputies, attributed them to a “Carnival” party.

Material gathered from the homes of lawmakers Nikos Michos and Yiannis Lagos has not provided magistrates Ioanna Klapa and Maria Dimitropoulou with any new information but they are yet to review evidence recovered from the properties of five other Golden Dawn deputies, including Panayiotaros, being investigated.

The alleged evidence was discovered after technicians were able to recover it from computers although the material had been deleted.

One shows Michaloliakos and another MP who had been arrested, Georgios Germenis, giving Heil Hitler-style Nazi salutes during the initiation of new members taking vows of loyalty to the party.


  1. It was said that the material includes speeches given by Michaloliakos and Kasidiaris exhorting the overthrow of the government of the New Democracy Conservatives of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and his partner, PASOK Socialist chief Evangelos Venizelos, who is Deputy Premier/Foreign Minister.

    Yes, overthrow not by military means but via crushing New Democracy & Pasok at National, municipal and EU parliamentary elections. Actually that’s the only way Golden Dawn could crush New Democracy and PASOK, as ALL the police investigations have failed to find any arsenal of assault rifles, tanks(LOL) or any evidence of the existence of a 5000 strong private army. So this alone should tell everyone that Golden Dawn was talking about crushing New Democracy & Pasok, (or Nea-Pasokratia as they are widely nicknamed today) at elections. It’s worth mentioning that Greece’s Prime Minister publicly stated that he will “eradicate” & “melt” Golden Dawn. Is this not exterminationist language? Imagine if a video had been found of XA leader Nikos Michaloliakos saying he would “eradicate” & “melt” New Democracy. The political persecution Greece’s 3rd most popular party (some polls say 2nd and 1st) by the Zionist controlled Junta “Venizelos-Samaras” continues.

  2. The counterterrorism police and the Ministry of Justice have some explaining to do regarding the mishandling of evidence, leaks to the media and creative seeding of evidence, or they could be prosecuted for gross misconduct. If allowed to continue such practices and/or exonerated of subterfuge charges there will be repercussions. Likewise if those incarcerated are found innocent there will demands for an investigation leaving little doubt who was responsible. Circumstantial evidence requires a heavy burden of proof by the prosecutors. The means of obtaining and handling of such evidence appears to be highly questionable and much of it is likely to be thrown out of court. Now can we try and have a fair trial?

  6. There are also pictures of Golden Dawn members performing Nazi salutes . . ..

    I am not Greek, but I know this salute is part of Greek culture and was used even by Metaxas government that resisted the German invasion. The Greek Reporter should know this, since they published this picture on this site last year.


  7. New Democracy MP Nikita Kaklamanis has just released a statement saying that the prosecution and imprisonment of Golden Dawn MP’s is a bad tactic and is only boosting Golden Dawns popularity, and that it will continue to boost Golden Dawns popularity. How right he is!

  8. the commentary has turned into a big nazi circle jerk,

    have never seen so many idiots post on one board

  9. The Golden Dawn were once Nazis hiding behind a non-Nazi blanket. That blanket had been torn away now, and their Nazi identity’s have been exposed. The demise of these Nazis is here! Victory again!

  10. Only nazist today are sionist and the only nazi state is Israel, stop calling native Europeans nazist for just wanting to be a majority in their own countries you nazi jew.

  11. When minorities are tergeted as Terrorist Cells and the Greeks start building 20ft cement walls to divide and place santions to those who live within the walls, then you shouldn’t open your yiddish mouth.

  12. Communist Syriza represents the other extreme in Greek politics. Communists are no less evil than fascists.

  13. You have a point. (Some) Jews manipulate antisemetism as a smokescreen to cover up racist and fascist elements in israel. That said, it still doesn’t excuse GD’s behavior.

  14. You are a bigot and a criminal thug. I just want to remind you of the fate of the previous fascists and dictators of the the 1967 junta. they all died in prison sent there by the democratic Greece to pay for their crimes.

  15. Really? Kasidiaris is projected to win the Athens mayoral race by a wide margin. Their support has rebounded, you idiot.
