Greek Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn Party Leader Arrested
The leader of extremist right-wing Greek party Golden Dawn, Nikolaos Michaloliakos, has been detained by authorities in Greece.
Party spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris has also been arested, reports ITAR-TASS.
The Greek prosecution has also issued orders of arrest for other Golden Dawn MPs and functionaries.
The campaign comes in the wake of the mudrer of 34-year-old leftwing musician Pavlos Fissas, for which a Golden Dawn member is suspected.
At June 2012 general elections in Greece, the neo-Nazi party got 6.9% of the vote, gaining 18 seats in the 300-seat Hellenic Parliament.

what is Golden Dawn's program? Do they advocate Greeks as a 'master race?' do they advocate military aggression against neighboring states..no they just want illegal immigrants expelled from overrunning their country..yes Nazi! what a pile of crap, yes GD leaders are bufoons, BUT they give voice to regular people's feelings banning them will not make the illegals go away
And typed by you to demonstrate how idiots with nothing to say still insist on drivelling away.
Exactly what, in your informed and tolerant view, is wrong and "Nazi" with expecting equal treatment for all wrong-doers? I'm asking it in a general way since I'm sure you know sweet FA about the ins and outs of politics in this part of the world but no doubt still feel impelled to give us the benefit of your lack of knowledge and political nous....have fun in Troll World ;)
To quote the English-language web site of one of the Greek dailies: "...Police have arrested the leader and other top officials of the extreme-right Golden Dawn party on charges of forming a criminal organization...."
Where were these laws when the criminal gangs of Syriza were destroying a lot of Athens - and when the criminal organizations known as PASOK and ND were busily taking turns to show the Bulgarian Red Garbage how REAL professionals go about robbing the nation?
