Police officers told  zougla.gr that the raids took place in a preliminary examination performed on incidents of attacks against foreigners.  “The investigation was initiated in response to some complaints. However everything is possible.  We examined whether and how police stations officers were associated with Golden Dawn members.”

A couples of months ago, a Pakistani had filed a complaint that the police director of Renti had stolen 4,000 euro from him and he was blackmailing him. The police director is to appear in court next month.

Nevertheless, in the broader internal police investigation about possible involvement of police in Golden Dawn activities, the ‘tolerance’ police demonstrated against GD activities but also possible criminal acts against foreigners, several high ranking police officers were suspended and/or transferred to other posts on Monday.
