Tsipras: The People of Athens Delivered Their Verdict

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday referred to the heroic figure of Magda Fyssa, mother of the murdered Pavlos Fyssas, coming to the Court of Appeals to hear the court's verdict in the case of Golden Dawn, noting that – as he said – "for seven whole years she carried this burden almost alone."

Today, Tsipras stressed, "we all assume some of this burden for democracy and dignity. The people of Athens delivered their verdict. They are not innocent, we know this well, about their actions, about the murders, the violence, the poisoning of Greek society with hatred and division. We hope that justice will rise to the occasion and give this verdict it should. In the consciousness of the Greek people, however, [Golden Dawn] is criminal and it will go where it should, that is, into the garbage can of history, as befits the struggles of this people, the history of this place," he concluded.
