Slain Greek Rapper’s Family Wants Mass Turnout for Golden Dawn Verdict

September 20, 2020

ATHENS – With a verdict due Oct. 7 in the trial of the leaders of Greece's neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party and dozens of its members, facing charges of running a criminal gang, the family of an anti-Fascist hip-hop artist is expecting the man accused of killing their son will get his due.

Pavlos Fyssas was stabbed to death in September 2013 after he, his girlfriend and some friends ran into a Golden Dawn gang at a tavern before they were attacked and he was murdered on the street.

Giorgos Roupakias is accused of the killing that shocked the country and set off a probe of the party, some of whose members were also charged with attacking migrants and other targets they considered to be enemies.

“We anticipate the court’s decision to be a minimum vindication in the memory of Pavlos and all those harmed by Nazi violence,” Fyssas' family said of Golden Dawn, which was narrowly bounced from Parliament in July 7, 2019 snap elections.

“On October 7, 2020, we expect people to flood the streets outside the Court of Appeals to shout that they are not innocent,” the Fyssas family’s announcement said of Golden Dawn, ending a trial that took five years to complete.
