The Greek police are on the trail of the man who killed the two supporters of Golden Dawn near the party office in Neo Iraklio a month ago, as reported by the Greek newspaper "To Vima". A week ago, a team of the anti-terrorist service left for Cyprus to collect more information about the perpetrators.

The article states that the Greek anti-terrorists questioned a local anarchist who is in prison after being recognized as the perpetrator of the cold-blooded murder of five people, guards of a known Cypriot businessman, in June 2012.

The anti-terrorist service believes that 30-year-old Dimitris M. knows the killer of the Golden Dawners. He is a member of the group "Military People's Revolutionary Forces", which has recently appeared on the scene. According to sources, however, the anarchist has so far refused to cooperate with the Greek anti-terrorists.

Police officers state that they have evidence of the involvement of the 30-year-old anarchist in armed attacks in Greece in the period 2009-2010. They believe that, in one of them, he had probably acted along with the killer of the Golden Dawners in Neo Iraklio.

Meanwhile, the trial against the six persons accused of involvement in the terrorist group "Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei" has started in a hall in the female wing of the prison in Korydallos, which has been specifically adapted for similar cases.

Two of the defendants, namely "the shooter from Syntagma", Yiannis Michailidis, and Nikos Romanos defined themselves as "anarchists" and "urban guerrillas" and launched attacks on the judges. They stated that they were not concerned about the court's decision and the possible sentence because "the judges judge according to the dish they were served at home."

Both said they were against the system and Michailidis appeared without defenders, thus demonstrating his disrespect for the procedure. The court has assigned a public defender for him.

The other defendants in the case are Andreas Bourzoukous, Anargiros Dalios, Dimitris Politis and Fivos Harisis - Poulos. The six are accused of attempting to rob two banks in the town of Velvendo near Kozani on 1 February this year.

Meanwhile, sources of the anti-terrorist service have connected the attack with sledgehammers on an Internet cafe in the neighbourhood of Exarcheia on Tuesday evening with the arrests of the anarchists who had been apprehended in the suburb of Nea Philadelphia a few months earlier. In a statement the police announce that, at 10:30 pm on Tuesday, a group of about ten people with masked faces had caused damage to the window of an Internet cafe, which is located near Patission street. They had thrown Molotov cocktails in the cafe and at a luxury SUV, which had been parked in front of it. The cafe owner had not recognized the attackers in any of the ten persons apprehended at the site of the attack. He told the authorities that, when they had broken the window, the young men with the hammers had threatened him, accusing him of being an "informer of the police."

The five anarchists were apprehended in the cafe in Nea Philadelphia on 30 April. Two of them, namely Anargiros Dalios and Fivos - Harisis Poulos, had been wanted for involvement in the group "Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei" and in the bank robberies in Velvendo and Philotas. Yiannis Naksakis and Grigoris Sarafoudis were detained for carrying out armed robberies and anarchist Dimitris Hadzivasiliadis for illegal possession of weapons.

On 10 October this year, Dalios, Poulos, Naksakis and Sarafoudis had published on Indymedia  website a text stating that they had been detected and arrested as a result of operational errors. "They officially started following us at 11:20 pm when they captured Grigoris. The operation ended at 4:00 am when we were apprehended in Nea Philadelphia. We have good reasons to believe that they started following us at that hour. A little earlier our friend had been at the Internet cafe ... which is located between Exarcheia and the centre of Athens. We believe that the specific cafe was and still is under supervision, bearing in mind the fact that, in the past, many friends of ours, having left the cafe, had been pursued by plainclothes police officers," they had written.
