Golden Down “boys” to be prosecuted for inciting the public to hatred

Golden Dawn deputies will be tried for inciting public hatred against minority MPs.

Golden Down ex-president and MPs will be tried for inciting public hatred against Turkish minority MPs. The hearing will be held tomorrow (Tuesday, 8 November) at the Athens Three-Judge Criminal Court.

In the statement made by the Greek Helsinki Monitor (GHM), it was stated that Nikos Mihaloliakos, ex-chairman of the far-right, racist Golden Dawn Party, and former MPs Ilias Kasidiaris and Panayotis Iliopulos will be tried for inciting the public to hatred against the Western Thrace minority MPs. 

In the statement, it was reminded that the said deputies were punished by the parliamentary general Assembly in March 2018 for their accusatory, provocative and targeting statements against minority deputies. 

In the statement of the Greek Helsinki Monitor (GHM), it was noted that Golden Down deputies described the accusation of minority deputies of being Türkiye's agents as a "racist attack" because they were conscious of Turkish national identity.

The Greek Helsinki Monitor (GHM) filed a criminal complaint against the Golden Dawn deputies, and the Golden Dawn deputies were referred to the court on charges of inciting the public to hatred.

It was stated that the hearing, which was postponed twice before, will be held tomorrow (Tuesday, 8 November) in Athens.
