Members of Greece's Golden Dawn invaded the ferry carrying the Pakistani national who has admitted to the brutal assault on a 15-year-old girl on Paros. The police van transferring the suspect was attacked before escaping from Piraeus Harbor.
Members of Golden Dawn gathered at Piraeus harbor in protest, awaiting the ferry transferring the Pakistani national accused of attempted murder, from Syros to Athens. The alleged rapist has confessed to police that he brutally assaulted a 15-year-old Greek tourist on the island of Paros. The teenager remains in critical condition in hospital, fighting for her life.
To Vima reported around 70 members of Golden Dawn shouted slogans as the ferry docked at Piraeus. Following the disembarkation of all the passengers about 20 men invaded the ferry, leading police to order the immediate removal of the prisoner. As the prisoner was driven away the windshield of the police car was broken by protesters.
The Pakistani national, who was due to have been deported from Greece on August 8 if he had not been apprehended for the vicious crime, has now revealed to authorities that he previously provided false personal details. Ekathimerini reported he told the court he was 19, not 21, as he previously claimed. Due to this he has been remanded in the Avlona young offenders’ jail rather than an adult prison.
No lawyer was willing to defend the Pakistani, so he was appointed a state lawyer.
