Two former lawmakers of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn denied on Thursday that they or the party had any links to Nazism or hate speech.
The two men, Artemis Matthaiopoulos and Dimitris Koukoutsis, testified in the ongoing trial of Golden Dawn's party leaders, who are accused of running a criminal organization.
Suspected supporters of the neo-fascist Golden Dawn party desecrated the Muslim cemetery of Alexandroupoli in northern Greece, local media reported Tuesday.
The vandals spray-painted the cemetery with nationalist graffiti and the party's swastika-like emble, while scattering fliers saying "Greece belongs to the Greeks."
Police in the Greek capital on Tuesday remanded three suspected neo-Nazis who were trying to hang two swastika flags at the historic Athens Polytechnic building.
According to police, the suspects were trying to attach the flags to the entrance of the university where a student uprising in 1973 helped bring down the 1967-1974 military dictatorship.
