AP: Greece: Convicted former Golden Dawn lawmaker on the run
Greek authorities are hunting for one of the leading members and former lawmakers of the extreme right-wing Golden Dawn party after he refused to turn himself in following a court decision ordering his imprisonment
GreekNewsOnDemand.com comments: BEFORE you read the following AP PROPAGANDA article, know this: This whole Golden Dawn trial was nothing more than an attempt of the Greek parastate -or…DEEP STATE as we say in the States!- (which is controlled by former PASOK party elements which have openly and secretly governed Greece for decades and which taking its order from Washington) to SILENCE ANY PATRIOTIC GROUP in Greece that would dare take on the filthy, corrupt system there and they’ve succeeded, in part. The death of Greek rapper Pavlos Fyssas has NOTHING to do with Golden Dawn as a party; it was a personal beef between Giorgos Roupakias and him which led to Roupakias having to DEFEND HIMSELF with a knife because, if he didn’t, Fyssas would have KILLED HIM by smashing his head into the ground.
A parastate by definition is a “A region that seeks or claims but does not have the status of a recognized independent state,” but this perfectly describes this Greek, deep-state type of apparatus that has been secretly controlling Greece since 1974. It’s a state…WITHIN A STATE.
Once the killing took place, the police video immediately came out and showed EXACTLY THIS, yet this corrupt Greek parastate (which included the Justice system, politicians, the Greek Media, activists, celebrities and more) decided to…BURRY THIS EVIDENCE and use this killing as a way to create a witch hunt against Golden Dawn!!! This is all ONE BIG LIE and serves to further these Greek criminals’ agenda to destroy Greece with globalism, liberalism, illegal immigration, social and moral decay on all fronts and much, much more!!!
Golden Dawn, albeit NOT PERFECT (and which definitely need to disassociate itself entirely from Neo-nazism), strove to END all of this for the benefit of GREECE and have been PERSECUTED for all this for years!!
GD ASLO ATTEMPED TO TAKE ON THE SECRET, JEWISH CONTROL OVER GREECE (WHICH IS BEHIND ALL THE AFREMENTIONED ILLS THERE) AND THEY PAID FOR IT. THE WHOLE WITCH HUNT AGAINST THEM STARTED IN 2013 WHEN THE JEWISH LOBBY IN THE US GAVE ORDERS TO THEN GREEK PM ANTONIS SAMARAS TO PUT THEM IN JAIL ILLEGALLY, WHICH IS EXACLY WHAT HAPPENED!!!
THIS IS THE TRUTH ABOUT THE GOLDEN DAWN TRIAL WHICH THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WON’T TELL YOU!!!
ATHENS, Greece — Greek authorities are searching for one of the leading members and former lawmakers of the extreme right-wing Golden Dawn party after he refused to turn himself in following a court decision ordering his imprisonment.
Police were searching Friday for Christos Pappas, officially considered a fugitive after a Thursday court decision ordering a total of 39 people, including 13 former Golden Dawn lawmakers, to be imprisoned after they were convicted of running the party as a criminal organization.
All but two of the 39 were in custody by Thursday night, having turned themselves in. However, Pappas’ lawyer Periklis Stavrianakis told Greek state broadcaster ERT that his client was not surrendering as he considered his conviction would be quashed on appeal, meaning he would have served a prison sentence that could be overturned. Appeals processes in the Greek court system can take several years.
The other former Golden Dawn lawmaker not yet in custody is Ioannis Lagos, currently a European parliament member who lives in Brussels and is protected by immunity. Lagos was the only one of the former lawmakers who did not appeal for a suspended sentence.
The 37 people in custody, including party leader Nikos Michaloliakos, are expected to be transferred to prisons across the country.
Thursday’s court decision capped a marathon five-year politically charged trial involving 68 defendants and dozens of lawyers. It encompassed four cases: the 2013 fatal stabbing of left-wing Greek rap singer Pavlos Fyssas, physical attacks on Egyptian fishermen and left-wing activists, and whether Golden Dawn was operating as a criminal organization.
A total of 57 party members and associates were convicted on Oct. 7, mostly for involvement in violent attacks and participating in a criminal organization. Of those, the panel of three judges rejected appeals for suspended sentences for 39.
Golden Dawn was founded as a neo-Nazi group in the 1980s and remained a fringe group until it rose to prominence during the country’s 2010-2018 financial crisis. Running on a nationalist, populist platform, it won parliamentary seats in four separate elections and became Greece’s third-largest political party. It has been blamed for multiple hate crimes, including brutal street attacks on immigrants and left-wing activists.
