The re­sults of a pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion by se­cu­rity po­lice in Pi­raeus into a raid on a school in Perama by a Golden Dawn MP and other far-right ex­trem­ists protest­ing the prospect of classes for refugee chil­dren was to go to a Pi­raeus pros­e­cu­tor yes­ter­day.

The Pri­mary School Teach­ers’ Fed­er­a­tion (DOE) is­sued a state­ment ac­cus­ing the mob, which was led by GD MP for Pi­raeus Yian­nis La­gos, of “barg­ing into the school­yard, punch­ing, kick­ing and swear­ing at teach­ers and par- ents with vul­gar and fas­cist lan­guage.” Ac­cord­ing to DOE, po­lice of­fi­cers stood by while the raid took place.

In a re­lated in­ci­dent yes­ter­day, par­ents ob­ject­ing to the pres­ence of refugee chil­dren in classes clashed with anti-fas­cist pro­test­ers at a school in Ker­atsini.

The de­vel­op­ments come amid re­ports that GD, whose MPs are on trial on crim­i­nal charges, is be­gin­ning to make its pres­ence known, or­ga­niz­ing pub­lic meet­ings and protests.
