GD-member charged with murder of leftist rapper Fyssas released from custody

Golden Dawn member Giorgos Roupakias charged with the murder of leftist rapper Pavlos Fyssas in September 2013 is to be released from custody due to time limit of pretrial detention.

Giorgos Roupakias will be be released from custody next month as he will have completed the maximum of 18 months in pretrial detention.

Following a ruling by a council of appeals court judges on Friday, Roupakias, a self-confessed member of Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, will be released on March 18 however under strict restrictive conditions: house-arrest under 24-hour police guardianship and ban from leaving the country. He will be allowed to leave home only to attend court sessions.

“The fact that the trial of Golden Dawn is taking place at a purpose-built courtroom inside maximum-security Korydallos Prison, in Athens, has prevented proceedings from taking place on a daily basis. Despite pledges, authorities have so far failed to find an alternative courtroom.” (ekathimerini)

Now the court delays make sense: release from custody…

  2. Greek rap? Really? Piece of shit nigger lovers.

      Yeah, this is Rock’n’Roll and I guess all your favourite music will be black music or you’re listening to none at all as you’re from one of this genius and cultural blessing Arian nations that lack of any kind of own music culture as they are too stupid to invent one.
      But if you come to the Balkans you’ll figure that nearly every village and island got their own style, beside thousands of Greek bands and musicians that transport their own Greek influences into Rock’n’Roll and sometimes it’s all mixed up.

  3. Greek justice is a catastrophe. The reason there is a limit to pretrial detention is that it is an abuse of human rights to detain someone without trial. The proceedings should have been concluded by now: completely useless overpaid judges. And don’t forget, these are the people who reinstated their full pensions to ensure that they still receive massive pensions while the rest of Greece is suffering. Simple corruption and self-interest, from the senior judges of Greece.
