Leader turns himself in
Athens: The founder of Greek farRight movement Golden Dawn turned himself in yesterday after a court refused to suspend jail terms on him and other leading figures for running a criminal gang linked to hate crimes.
Nikos Mihaloliakos (62) was driven to police headquarters as supporters shouted ‘‘Blood, Honour, Golden Dawn’’.
Earlier, he told reporters he was being hounded by a ‘‘dirty junta’’ of politicians and media.
Mihaloliakos and five other former Golden Dawn lawmakers were each sentenced to 13 years in prison on October 14. — Reuters
