EU Official Urges Greece Ban Golden Dawn Party; Says Neo-Nazi Party Opposes Democracy in Greece

A top European Union (EU) official said today (April 16, 2013) that it would behoove Greece to ban its ultra right-wing Golden Dawn Party, according to the Global Post website.

The Council of Europe's human rights commissioner Nils Muiznieks said in a report that Greece had failed to control the spread of violence committed by followers of the fascist party.

"A number of attacks have been linked to members or supporters, including parliamentarians, of the neo-Nazi political party 'Golden Dawn'" the report read.

It went on to say, "What is also particularly worrying is that from statements made by the party's leadership and ideological documents available on its official website, it is clear that 'Golden Dawn' is a party that is against parliamentary democracy, and treats it with contempt. This is unfortunate, since Greece is the birthplace of democracy.
