On 20 April, the trial of 69 members of Greece’s fascist party Golden Dawn — Greece’s “little Nuremberg” — began in a packed room at the Women’s Prison of Korydallos, near Piraeus.
It was then adjourned to 7 May, in order to designate defence counsel for one of the defendants who had no lawyer.
The 69 defendants include the head of the party, Nikos Michaloliakos, and all the previous parliamentary group of Golden Dawn.
The matters before the court are:
• The murder of the musician Pavlos Fyssas on the night of 17 September 2013
• The attack on three Egyptian fishermen in their home in Perama
