    The European Jewish Congress has welcomed the arrest of far-right politicians in Greece.

    Over the weekend, more than 10 senior members of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party were arrested after anti-fascist hip-hop singer Pavlos Fyssas was allegedly stabbed to death in Athens by a party supporter.

    The party has denied any involvement in the killing.

    Party leader Nikolaos Mihaloliakos was charged with belonging to a criminal organisation.

    EJC President Moshe Kantor said: “This is a long overdue move which will hopefully send a very strong message to neo-Nazi’s in Greece and across Europe.

    “Arresting those who support violence, racism and intolerance protects democracy.

    “The arrest of the party leader in particular demonstrates that no one is above the law and that neo-Nazis cannot claim parliamentary immunity for their actions.

    “The EJC calls on all European governments and authorities to follow suit and proscribe parties with similar hateful, xenophobic and hateful ideologies.”

    “We congratulate Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on the crackdown of neo-Nazis.”
