Golden Dawn on deadly attack
“A motorcycle with two helmeted terrorists stopped in front of the Golden Dawn offices in Neo Iraklio while the office was opened and a number of people were standing at the entrance,” a press release of the ultra-right Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avghi) party said after the drive-by shooting.
“The co-driver dismounted and executed two young men aged 22 and 26, from a distance of half a meter. Before driving off, the terrorists shot again against the victims lying dead on the ground. They literally emptied their guns on them. Another citizen was seriously injured by a bullet. It is a miracle that there were no more victims. The blow was blind and the culprits were determined to kill anyone who was at the Golden Dawn offices at the time,” the party added.
It also stressed that the Golden Dawn had requested police protection as it had received threats.
