Fyssas friend tells of fatal stabbing
The Golden Dawn trial continued at Korydallos Prison yesterday, with a friend of Pavlos Fyssas describing the attack that let to the rapper’s murder.
Dimitris Melachrinopoulos, who was with Fyssas on the fatal night in September 2013, told the court how a group of assailants surrounded his friend. “It was like they formed a circle around him, making room for Roupakias,” he said, referring to Fyssas’s killer Giorgos Roupakias. Later that night, at the local police precinct, Melachrinopoulos identified Roupakias as the killer. “He was completely passive, as if nothing had happened,” he said. The witness said he received anonymous telephone calls after the murder from someone warning him “you’ll be next.”
