A wit­ness at the trial of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party said in court in Athens yes­ter­day that the fa­tal in­juries sus­tained by rap­per Pav­los Fys­sas in 2013 were dealt by some­one who ap­peared to have un­der­gone train­ing. Dim­itris Hatzis­tama­tis, a Ko­ry­dal­los prison guard who wit­nessed the at­tack out­side a cafe­te­ria in Ker­atsini near Pi­raeus, also claimed the at­tack was pre­med­i­tated. Fys­sas’s killer, Gior­gos Roupakias, who has con­fessed to the stab­bing, is one of 18 de­fen­dants im­pli­cated in the mur­der. A to­tal of 68 Golden Dawn mem­bers, in­clud­ing the party’s lead­er­ship, face charges of run­ning a crim­i­nal or­ga­ni­za­tion, as well as ex­tor­tion and at­tempted mur­der. All were re­leased from cus­tody af­ter com­plet­ing 18 months in pre­trial de­ten­tion and are cur­rently un­der house ar­rest.
