Athens – New evidence related to actions of the far-right Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avgi) was received on Monday by the examining magistrates investigating the case, after the counter-terrorism squad confiscated computers belonging to the organisation’s members.


Investigators said the huge volume of data collected from the computers of GD MPs Ilias Kasidiaris, Giorgos Germenis, Yiannis Lagos and Nikos Michaloliakos were crucial and of great importance for the progress of the investigation.


The electronic material includes photographs, videos and other evidence, which will be carefully examined by the two investigating magistrates. It is possible that the investigation may also yield evidence relating to additional suspects.


The evidence includes videos of new members swearing an oath of induction to the organisation, where they perform Nazi salutes and say: “I belong in Golden Dawn, because we are rebels. Let’s kill the hidden Jew inside us.” Other footage shows GD General Secretary Nikos Michaloliakos saying “our purpose is not to make those in the Parliament better or fix the corrupted political powers, which are finished, but rather finish them once and for all.” In other videos, Michaloliakos said “they say that we are the evil fascists and nationalists. The truth is that they are right.”
