SYRIZA Calls Wed. Rally for Appeals Court Verdicts on Golden Dawn Trial

ATHENS — SYRIZA is calling for a rally to be held outside the Athens Court of Appeal on Wednesday morning at 09:30 against fascism, the main opposition party said in a statement on Monday.

The appeals court is expected to decide on the basis of four major charges against founding members of former parliamentary far-right party Golden Dawn, who are accused of setting up a criminal organization, of murdering Greek rapper Pavlos Fyssas, and of instigating a string of violent attacks against migrants and political rivals, including a group of Egyptian fishermen and the Greek Communist Party's unionists, in 2012 and 2013.

According to the expected verdicts on these charges levelled to individuals, judges will decide whether to proceed to the relevant sentencing of Golden Dawn members, who have been on trial over the past five-and-a-half years.

SYRIZA said that "a voice of condemnation of the criminal neo-Nazi organization must be raised by all."
