ATHENS, October 3. (Itar-Tass) Greek court has decided to imprison Nikolaos Mihaloliakos, leader of the far-right Golden Dawn party until the court hearing, which is yet to be scheduled.
Mihaloliakos was brought to an Athens court Wednesday night from the head office of the Greek police. He was handcuffed and escorted by a special ops convoy armed with assault rifles.
It was estimated that around 50 party supporters waving popular party slogans in front of the courthouse, cordoned off by the police.
Mihaloliakos testified for almost seven hours. According to unnamed sources, he denied his party being accused of neo-Nazism and claimed that he was politically prosecuted. He also condemned the murder of a 34-year-old anti-fascist performer Pavlos Fyssas, which happened September 17. Party leader denied his movement being involved in the crime. He stressed that Golden Dawn only participated in parliamentary activity, did not have any shock troops and was not involved in assaults on immigrants.
His claims were deemed unconvincing; thus the court decided to transfer Mihaloliakos from detention center to jail until the court.
