Greek author and political commentator Stavros Ligeros recently wrote an article in Greece posing a very important, very simple question in regards to the recent persecutions of Golden Dawn. While most readers here believe the charges against Golden Dawn are a farce, Mr. Ligeros writes to a much wider audience and finds a very simple thing people should be asking themselves:
He brings up that the prosecutor in the case, makes the claim that he has much documented evidence of Golden Dawn being a criminal organization, spanning a long period of time before September 17th when the murder of Pavlos Fyssas occured.
He then writes:
“The theatrical style arrest of leaders of Golden Dawn wants to invoke antifascist sentiment in the majority of citizens, but this whole process raises serious questions. Now Democratic standards are established to make up as you go along and of course, the end justifies the means. So now neither “Democratic” sensibilities hold any solid basis.
In this regard, it is particularly worrying that the dominant trend (even though the Left also has had painful experience with it) is to ignore blatant violations of democratic rights, because it is directed against a “Neo-Nazi” party. It is remarkable that other parties, the media and civil society all practically accept the idea that the government has in it’s possession recorded incriminating telephone calls from members of the Golden Dawn. ALL having these before the murder, yet then no one had brought up the theory of it being a criminal organization all that time.”
With all the media tricks and elaborate hours and hours of dialogue on Greek TV, sometimes simple questions like these can destroy all of this nonsense theories in one swoop.
So we ask the question: Why did they not make public the government’s previous recordings of Members of the Golden Dawn and especially on September 17th? For the simple reason that Golden Dawn was already known to be innocent of the accusations of being a criminal gang. This alone proves that the whole story is a clear case of political persecution.
In this video below from last year with English Subtitles, at 2:37 minutes Mr. Ligeros also baffles journalists with his commentary about Golden Dawn, explaining to them how such a party is gaining strength and how they, and the politicians ignore the concerns of the Greek people.
