Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

An Athens pros­e­cu­tor yes­ter­day was ex­pected to ex­am­ine a law­suit filed by Golden Dawn against pop­u­lar day­time TV host Ta­tiana Ste­fanidou over comments she made on her show on Ep­silon TV earlier in the week in ref­er­ence to the neo-Nazi party’s MP Yian­nis La­gos lead­ing a raid on a school in the Pi­raeus dis­trict of Perama where refugee chil­dren are to at­tend classes. Ac­cus­ing La­gos of em­ploy­ing bul­ly­ing tac­tics, Ta­tiana hung up the phone on a caller de­fend­ing Golden Dawn’s pres­ence at the school, say­ing she would not al­low her show to be used as a plat­form in sup­port of such ac­tions. In a state­ment later in the day, left­ist SYRIZA noted that “fas­cism and racism have no place in Greek so­ci­ety” and that at­tempts by La­gos and oth­ers to “ob­struct the right of refugees to ed­u­ca­tion and to cen­sor jour­nal­ists” would be in vain.
