Alleged members of anarchist organization Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei interrupted the Golden Dawn trial in Athens’ Korydallos Prison makeshift courtroom on Friday.
The assailants, who wore hoods, threw water bottles at reporters and shouted threatening slogans, such as “Fascists, we will hang you.”
The lawyer of Golden Dawn leader Nikos Michaloliakos asked for the trial to be postponed, claiming security reasons. The mother of murdered rap singer Pavlos Fyssas stood up and shouted, “Shame on you, fascists, the trial will continue.”
The turmoil started when members of the anarchist organization were transferred to an adjoining courtroom for a hearing. Group supporters barged into the Golden Dawn hearing and created the commotion.
Both courts were adjourned. The neo-nazi party trial will continue on June 4.
