As we know today, one of the few pieces of evidence available to the police regarding the horrific double murder is a video that was captured by security cameras at the offices of the Golden Dawn in Iraklio. Without this footage, police work in solving the case would be even more difficult, since the crime would not have been captured otherwise.
Let us remember an earlier case, in order to put together the pieces of the puzzle and show the series of strange coincidences. On October 7th, 2012, a group of notoriously “unknown”-but actually well-known Leftists- had invaded the offices of Golden Dawn in Southern Athens, where they vandalized the walls, destroyed property , and stole a laptop, desktop computer and all of the shirts and hats with the symbol of Golden Dawn- Southern Suburbs, which may have later been put to “government use”.
On February 2013, a few months after the Anarchist attack on these offices, the parliament member of SYRIZA Dimitris Tsoukalas (who has openly justified political violence) raised an issue regarding the presence of security cameras in Golden Dawn offices, requesting government to remove them. A few days later, on February 19th, state attorneys of the Prosecutors department were dispatched to this very office after the inflammatory questions made by the SYRIZA MP, not to help prosecute the Leftist attackers, but instead to find a way to get Golden Dawn’s security cameras removed.
While this was happening, we wrote on the visit of the Attorney: The prosecutor came in the morning to examine the office area and where the cameras were facing, and left after a few minutes since there was nothing illegal. He was there merely to inform the heads of agencies to inform the presence of cameras in the police station. This raises questions regarding the direct intervention of the state apparatus regarding a minor issue, only after a provocative question by a SYRIZA MP. On the other hand, there has been no action by officials to prosecute the attacks on these offices.”
Months later, as mentioned before, the security cameras of another Golden Dawn office are the most important piece of evidence available to the Counter-Terrorism department to find the killer. We can only guess as to what the motives of MP Tsoukalas were, and why Golden Dawn having security cameras preoccupies him so much.
