Greek police stations raided in move against far right
Tuesday 24 September 2013
Officers from the police internal affairs division have raided three police stations as part of an investigation into the activities of the far-right Golden Dawn party, after the fatal stabbing of an anti-fascist musician by a man who said he was involved with the party.
Police said internal affairs was investigating the stations in three areas west of Athens where attacks against immigrants had been reported. The move came a day after the government replaced five senior police officers "to ensure the absolute objectivity" of the investigation.
The Public Order Minister, Nikos Dendias, met the President to discuss the crackdown, prompted by the death of Pavlos Fyssas, a rapper who was stabbed last week.
Mr Dendias said he had sent a new file of alleged attacks carried out by members or supporters of Golden Dawn to the prosecutor.
