article imageGreece: Afghan with swastikas throws woman over coastal wall

By Katerina Nikolas     May 28, 2013 in Crime
Police in Corfu have arrested an illegal Afghan immigrant after he robbed a 20-year-old student and callously threw her over an eight-meter coastal wall. Police were surprised to find the Afghan had tattoos of swastikas and other Nazi symbols on his body.
Pantelis Haidos, the father of the young history student that was viciously attacked, described her ordeal to Zougla. He said she was returning home from a night out with friends when the alien Afghan robbed her. The young woman immediately handed over her purse when the robber demanded it, but as two cars approached the Afghan threw the Greek girl over the coastal wall.
Ms. Haidos is hospitalized but now out of danger. Meanwhile the criminal perpetrator has been charged with robbery and attempted murder. He will undergo a DNA test to ascertain his true age as his travel documents indicated he was 17-years-old but police have stated that his appearance is that of an older adult. If the man is indeed 17 he will be held in a young offenders’ jail rather than an adult prison.
According to Xryshaygh the Afghan criminal had applied for political asylum in Greece but had not been held in detention.
Proto Thema reported police are also perturbed by the swastikas and other Nazi symbols tattooed on the man's body. The man refused to answer police questions regarding his tattoos but stated he was a Muslim.
Human rights organizations report almost daily on alleged racist attacks against immigrants by Greeks but fail to report on the frequent attacks against Greeks by illegal immigrants.
