BNP's Nick Griffin to address neonazi meeting

10 January, 15:50

    (ANSAmed) – ATHENS, JANUARY 10 - The leader of a British far-right party will be in Athens today to speak in support of neonazi Golden Dawn, as daily Eleftherotypia online reports.

    Nick Griffin, who heads the British National Party (BNP) and is a member of the European Parliament, is scheduled to address a Golden Dawn press conference to present the party’s plans to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights over what it claims is a government’s crackdown on it. Golden Dawn claims that the remanding in custody of its leader, deputy leader and another party MP as “illegal and unconstitutional” and says it will present documents showing how the “scheme against Golden Dawn was set up”. In September, after the arrest of Golden Dawn leaders in the aftermath of the stabbing of a antifascist rapper by a party supporter, Griffin expressed his “full solidarity with Greek patriots, being persecuted by the system as a consequence of their fast growing support among ordinary Greeks”.
