Mother of slain rap­per, video point to GD MP

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The mother of Pav­los Fys­sas, the rap­per stabbed to death two years ago by a mem­ber of Golden Dawn in Ker­atsini, near Pi­raeus, yesterday told a court hear­ing the crim­i­nal trial of the neo-Nazi party’s lead­er­ship that the or­der for the hit had come from Pi­raeus MP Yian­nis La­gos as a video emerged show­ing a se­nior GD of­fi­cial nam­ing La­gos in ref­er­ence to a pos­si­ble at­tack.

Con­clud­ing her tes­ti­mony yesterday in a tense and emo­tional ses­sion at the makeshift court­room in Ko­ry­dal­los Prison, Magda Fyssa claimed that La­gos or­dered the mur­der of her son on Septem­ber 18, 2013. “La­gos gave the or­der. He gave the OK,” Fyssa said, re­fer­ring to the fa­tal stab­bing of her son by GD mem­ber Gior­gos Roupakias. She added that GD leader Nikos Michalo­li­akos had “the ul­ti­mate re­spon­si­bil­ity.”

Mean­while, a video posted on the Efimerida ton Syn­tak­ton news­pa­per yesterday shows GD Nikaia branch leader Gior­gos Patelis, who spoke on the tele­phone with La­gos on the night of Fys­sas’s mur­der, telling a crowd of party sup­port­ers about an up­com­ing at­tack and re­fer­ring to the Pi­raeus MP. “Cer­tain peo­ple will get mes­sages for the 15th of the month... if I get the OK from La­gos. If I don’t, we don’t do it,” Patelis can be heard say­ing in an ap­par­ent ref­er­ence to a planned at­tack.
