article imageVideo: TV host pelted with eggs & yoghurt for neo-Nazi interview

By Anne Sewell     Apr 8, 2012 in Politics
A Greek TV host decided to invite a member of the Greek neo-Nazi party to appear on his show the previous week. Leftist activists took revenge during his latest show on Friday.
Last week, Panagiotis Vourhas invited a spokesman of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party on to his show.
Members of the party have been accused of acts of hate crimes and violence against political opponents, ethnic minorities and also illegal immigrants in Greece. In recent polls, the party apparently has the support of more than 5% of voters.
On Friday this week on the private channel Epiros TV1 show, when interviewing a local politician he was attacked by a group of 17 activists, their faces hidden behind handkerchiefs. The intruders pelted the presenter with eggs and yoghurt and yelled "You're all criminals - we're with the immigrants!"
In the video, Vourhas can be seen, trying to clean the mess from his laptop, while the protesters continue to bombard him.
