Greece Neo-Nazi leaders found guilty of running a crime gang International News
Greece: A Greek court on Wednesday found the leadership of Greece's neo-Nazi party convicted of running a criminal organization. This trail has been lasting for more than five years.
The judge gave the verdict on 68 defendants, a large number of people gathered outside the court in Athens. The court assessed four cases into one: the fatal stabbing of Greek rap singer Pavlos Fyssas, attacks on migrant fishermen, attacks on left-wing activists, and whether Golden Dawn was operating as a criminal organization.
This criminal inquiry began in 2013 when the party began with the murder of an anti-fascist rapper. Leader Nikos Michaloliakos and six colleagues were convicted of heading a criminal group. Supporter Giorgos Roupakias was found guilty of murdering an anti-racist musician and 15 others were convicted of conspiracy in the case. The court ruled at least 10 years in the prison
Greek media reported that some 2,000 police were being deployed around Athens Appeals Court as hundreds of protesters demanded long jail terms, carrying banners that read "fear will not win" and "Nazis in prison”. Tear gas was fired into the crowd as clashes began.
