It was inevitable that Golden Dawn, which poisoned Greek society, would begin to unravel. The systematic investigations of Justice – along with the decisive contribution of the Press in revealing their harrowing actions – lead to making a case about the criminal nature of the organization on the one hand and on the internal unraveling of the neo-Nazi group on the other.
The first departure of an MP from Golden Dawn’s ranks, in conjunction with the admission of the organization’s criminal nature, even if it is for self-protection purposes, is a clear indication that the hammer of Justice has shaken quite a few of those who pretended to be ruthless critics and arbiters, who bullied and threatened anyone they perceived as an enemy.
This is demonstrated by the ravings of his until-yesterday like-minded comrades, who have come to finally realize that their threats and brutalities cannot fully conceal their actions anymore. Obviously the judiciary has the exclusive responsibility to determine the degree of participation in a sea of crimes of each of the indicted. It is also certain that they cannot cry about being politically persecuted.
The evidence regarding their criminal activities are overwhelming. So long as just Justice carries on undeterred, then it will become clear just how responsible and personally involved Golden Dawn’s leadership was. That is what they fear. It is high time for the people to realize it, who in response to the consequences of the crisis and the responsibilities of the political system, were enticed by the anti-systemic rhetoric of the neo-Nazis, overlooking their criminal actions.
Irrespective of what the proponents of violence, racism and intolerance may claim, the rule of law and tolerate even those whose ideas subvert it, but it cannot stand for the daily criminal activities of any ambitious savior.
