The Golden Dawn trial was ad­journed yes­ter­day un­til Novem­ber 4 af­ter judge Maria Lepe­ni­oti re­jected a re­quest by a lawyer rep­re­sent­ing the neoNazi party MP Chris­tos Pap­pas for one of the wit­nesses to be re­manded in cus­tody un­til the end of the trial. Lawyers rep­re­sent­ing the de­fen­dants at­tempted to cast doubt on the ev­i­dence given for a sec­ond day by Dim­itris Melachrinopou­los, a friend of mur­dered rap­per Pav­los Fys­sas. Pap­pas’s lawyer went as far as claim­ing that Melachrinopou­los, who wit­nessed the deadly knife at­tack on Fys­sas by Golden Dawn mem­ber Gior­gos Roupakias, was guilty of per­jury. The judge, how­ever, re­jected his call and said that the court was not in a po­si­tion at the mo­ment to make such a judg­ment.
