Probe into GD school raid heads to prosecutor’s office
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.
