Jailed Golden Dawn Spokesman Used Phone to Urge Greek Anti-Vaxxers

ΑΤΗΕΝS — The jailed former spokesman of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, Ilias Kasidiaris, will have use of his cell phone limited to personal or family calls after he reportedly used it to post videos and urge people not to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The administration of the high-security Domokos Prison agreed to the limits sought by  Greece’s General Secretary for Anti-Crime policy, Sofia Nikolaou, said Kathimerini, although it wasn't explained why prisoners are allowed to use cell phones.

His phone calls will be monitored and his access will be limited only to people authorized to visit him in prison, and on Skype. He is serving time with the other former leaders of the party that had been in Parliament.

They were jailed in October, 2020 after being convicted of running a criminal gang, with one member found guilty of the murder of anti-Fascist hip-hop artist Pavlos Fyssas, an act which brought the beginning of the end of the party.

Prison officials said he violates the terms or any kind of irregular activity is found during the monitoring that the servie will be interrupted but no report on whether his phone would also be taken away.
