GD trial told of threats against non-Greek store owners
Seck Khadim, former president of the Senegalese community in Athens and owner of a grocery store in Amerikis Square, testifies during the trial of Golden Dawn’s leadership and members, yesterday. Khadim, who now works as an interpreter, said that groups of men wearing GD insignia patrolled in the area, bullying migrants and blackmailing nonGreek shop owners. They, he said, had repeatedly asked for money or threatened to ‘shut down’ migrant businesses. Quantro, an immigrant-owned bar in Aghios Panteleimonas, was destroyed in an arson attack in 2013.
