Greek Court Declares Fascist Golden Dawn Party a Criminal Organization

HeadlineOct 08, 2020

In Greece, an Athens court ruled Wednesday that the neofascist party Golden Dawn was a criminal organization, tying the party to a series of attacks on migrants and left-wing activists. The ruling concluded a five-year trial that could have implications for the far right throughout Europe. The Guardian called it the “biggest trial of fascists since Nuremberg.” Thousands rejoiced at the news. This is Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis: “With today’s decision by the three-member criminal court of appeals on the actions of Golden Dawn, a traumatic cycle in the public’s life of the country comes to a close. Its political dimension has, fortunately, been judged by the victory of the republic, which expelled the Nazi formation from Parliament. Now the independent judiciary gave its own answer.”
