Golden Dawn Supporters Harass Reporters Covering Arrest of Golden Dawn Leader

October 23, 2020

ATHENS — A photojournalist covering the home arrest of former MP and convicted leader of far-right criminal organization Golden Dawn Nikos Michaloliakos for Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA-MPA) was physically harassed by Golden Dawn supporters on Thursday.

The man said a group of 4-5 hooded individuals wearing sunglasses approached him and other reporters covering the transfer of Michaloliakos from his home to the Attica police headquarters holding area in central Athens and began pushing and shoving them, hit some of them, then damaged the ANA-MPA reporter's camera equipment.

A complaint was filed to the police by the photographer for the incident of aggression.

The incident took place in the aftermath of an Athens Appeals court Thursday order for the arrest of Golden Dawn's leaders and key members and their transfer to prison. The landmark ruling follows a five-year trial of dozens of top officials, members, and supporters of the organization founded as a Neo-Nazi group in the 1980s, that rose to become Greece s third-largest political party during a major financial crisis in the previous decade.



ATHENS - Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias will leave for Albania on Monday, May 23 to meet with members of the Greek national minority from Himarra and the Archbishop of Tirana, Durres and all Albania Anastasios, according to a foreign ministry's statement.
