Ger­me­nis as­sailants.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A group call­ing it­self the “Squat­ters of Kou­velou Man­sion” (in ref­er­ence to an aban­doned build­ing un­der occupation by an­ar­chists) yes­ter­day claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity on an anti-es­tab­lish­ment web­site for the at­tack on Golden Dawn law­maker Gior­gos Ger­me­nis in Maroussi, north­ern Athens, on Satur­day. The group claimed that around 30 of its mem­bers came face-to-face with the far-right deputy out­side a cafe while putting up posters in the neigh­bor­hood. Ger­me­nis, it said, “did not as­sess the dif­fi­cult po­si­tion in which he found him­self and in­stead of ac­cept­ing our in­vi­ta­tion to leave pre­ferred to con­tinue pro­vok­ing.” The an­nounce­ment added that the group at­tacked the law­maker when his com­pan­ion, an off-duty po­lice of­fi­cer, reached for a gun. Ger­me­nis suf­fered mi­nor in­juries in the at­tack.
