Golden Dawn has reportedly infiltrated the police force

With the Greek government trying to dismantle the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party as May elections loom for municipalities and the European Parliament, authorities are now investigating whether a police office on Crete is going to run as a candidate.

That report came a day after party leaders appeared on the island at a rally where one of its Members of Parliament, Michalis Arvanitis gave a Heil Hitler salute to followers, saying it was an ancient Greek gesture.

Party officials deny any link to Nazism although included in more than 10,000 pages of evidence and digital documents are reports that Mein Kamp was a favorite text, Nazi methodology and ideology was used on recruits and Nazi memorabilia had been found.

It had been reported previously that nearly half the police force voted for Golden Dawn when it won 6.97 percent of the vote in June, 2012 and gained 18 seats in Parliament and authorities said they would try to identify the sympathizers.

An international investigation last year was also conducted to determine if the party had infiltrated the ranks of police and a number of top cops were removed from their posts.

The police officer candidate, who was not named, addressed the party gathering at the port of Hersonissos, according to local reports. Televised footage from the event has been given to a prosecutor.

The party is to run under the name National Dawn in the elections as nine of its MPs already face criminal charges and the remaining nine are to be charged with forming a criminal organization.

Party spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris, one of the nine MPs already charged with membership of a criminal organization, was present at the Hersonissos event along with other MPs.

In a related development, it emerged that the evidence collected by magistrates to support their request for the parliamentary immunity of the remaining nine GD MPs to be lifted contains testimony from a former party member who claims he was stabbed several times last year after quitting the group.

Meanwhile, the Appellate court handling the Golden Dawn investigations has forwarded to Parliament media files that were recovered from the mobile phones of Golden Dawn suspects, to assist Parliament in decided whether the approve an immunity lift on the party’s MPs, To Vima said.

One video was recovered from the mobile phone of Yannis Kazantzoglou, who has been detained for this involvement in the murder of anti-fascist hip-hop artist Pavlos Fyssas and for participating in a criminal organization.

In the video the black-clad members of the local Golden Dawn offices in Nikea can be seen in the streets chanting violent and racist-fueled slogans against Albanians., urging their comrades to “sew clothes with their skins” and “paint our houses with their blood”.


  1. This is why the utterly corrupt and fast fading New Democracy-Pasok coalition regime wants to ban Golden Dawn!

    The Greek newspaper  “Acropolis” has revealed a new poll showing Golden Dawn Governor Candidate Ilias Panagiotaros will win 24% of the vote in Attica! 

    Note to foreign readers: Attica is the most populated province of Greece (comparable to a state) containing the major cities of Athens and Piraeus. 

    Immense controversy and panic has erupted within circles of the systematic left and right, with Golden Dawn’s candidate LEADING in opinion polls in yet another important region of Greece.  Acropolis hired academic pollsters to conduct a telephone survey, who then broke the news.The political persecutions against Golden Dawn are having the opposite affect that the system is hoping for, as the Greek people realize the true nature of corruption in the system that governs them. It’s becoming more and more obvious to the people that this latest crackdown against Golden Dawn members by the Venizelos-Samaras Junta is about preventing nationalist candidates from exercising their constitutional rights…because they will win if they’re allowed to. Golden Dawn’s Panagiotaros IS IN FIRST PLACE in the poll, followed by the well-publicized SYRIZA pop-celebrity Dourou at 19%. A full list is as follows:

    Dourou 19%
    Sgouros 15%
    Nikolopoulos 13%
    Pachatouridis 7%
    Pafilis 6.5%
    Chaikalis 1.5%

  2. The results of a poll taken over 15th, 16th and 17th February 2014 by the respected polling agency William Hill on behalf of the British embassy in Greece have been released.
    Theu show SYRIZA coming first in Greece with 32%, Golden Dawn coming 2nd with 24%n New Democracy coming 3rd with 11%

  3. No author name suggests no one is willing to accept responsibility uncharacteristic of media practices and suggests that some or all of this is contrived. Unless the prosecution of GD is handled fairly and timely the coalition shall be held responsible and the consequences unavoidable come May.

  4. MSMlies, do you think Golden Dawn (or even National Dawn) will be allowed to participate in the elections? It’s hard to believe the Zionist rulers of Greece will allow themselves to be voted out of power.

  5. Unless a guilty verdict is delivered from the courts announcing that Golden Dawn is a “criminal organization” imprisoning Golden Dawns MP’s is not sufficient to prevent them from standing in elections. i.e. Whilst the trial is ongoing they can still have their names on the ballot. There is the unprecedented scenario of seeing Golden Dawn MP’s being elected to be Mayors and Governors whilst sitting in prison. Ofcourse even if a guilty verdict is given it is obviously a politically based decision and most of the Hellenic populace understands this. Golden Dawn is immensely popular. Banning them and imprisoning them will transform Golden Dawn into national heroes of mythical and gargantuan proportion! The Golden Dawn MP’s will remain unrepentant, united and unwavering. What can the rotten Venizelos-Samaras Junta do? Hand them a 20 year jail term for giving Roman salutes and swearing at Venizelos? It’s impractical. Handing GD a 20 year jail term will boost their popularity further and its not as if they will be forgotten.
    In June 2012 the New Democracy-Pasok coalition regime controlled 179 out the 300 seats. Now they control only 153 seats. If even 3 more ND or Pasok MP’s resign -(following the humiliation ND and Pasok will suffer at the May municipal and EU elections)- then fresh elections must be held and SYRIZA will take power…and we all know how long that government will last. A SYRIZA government will completely fail o improve Greece’s social-economic prospects. Tsipras will become as unpopular as Hollande. Meanwhile the Social Nationalist heroes of Golden Dawn will be sitting in prison, bidding their time, growing in popularity,… waiting for the moment of their release. The willpower of Golden Dawns leaders enables them to overcome all obstacles put in their way by World Jewry. This willpower that guarantees success is perhaps best can be summed up in this quote by one of the greatest warriors of the Second World War, Hans-Ulrich Rudel: “Only he is lost who gives himself up for lost”.
