15-year-old Afghan brutally attacked
The Police’s Racist Violence Response and Child Protection services are jointly investigating reports that a 15-year-old Afghan was brutally attacked at Attiki Square οn Easter Monday from what appears to be a gang of Golden Dawn members.
According to reports, the 15-year-old was approached by about six people clad in black who asked him where he was from and whether he had legal documents, before being brutally attacked. Nikitas Kanakis from the Greek chapter of international Medecins Du Monde NGO reported to in.gr that “after being beaten, his face was scarred with a broken beer bottle. It was barbaric. We are talking about psychos”.
The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment however the incident was not reported. The 15-year-old is currently accommodated at a hostel, while the UNHCR has been contacted and legal proceedings initiated.
The Minister of Public Order Nikos Dendias commented that “the cowards who copy mafia methods of attacking isolated immigrants, even 14-year-old children, will find the State which fights for justice and human rights against them, as well as the common consciousness of the Greek people”.
