GD trial.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A friend of Pav­los Fys­sas, the rap­per slain by a Golden Dawn mem­ber in 2013, told judges yesterday that he would have also been killed if he had stepped in to help the 34-year-old vic­tim. Nikos Hatzief­s­tra­tiou was with Fys­sas and other friends when their group was at­tacked by some 30-40 peo­ple – and the rap­per fa­tally stabbed – out­side a cafe­te­ria in a Pi­raeus sub­urb. “It was the first time I didn’t help my friend. We both could have been dead now,” he told the pros­e­cu­tor at the on­go­ing trial of the neo-Nazi party’s lead­er­ship on charges of run­ning a crim­i­nal or­ga­ni­za­tion. “This has tor­tured me over the past three years and is why I didn’t want to tes­tify,” he said, adding that he suf­fered a ner­vous break­down af­ter the killing and feared he would also be mur­dered by a GD mem­ber.
