Two and a half years ago, a far-right Greek man allegedly stabbed a rapper in the streets of Athens. Pavlos Fyssas, a 34-year-old who rapped as MC Killah P, died of his injuries that night and 47-year-old Golden Dawn member Giorgos Roupakis was arrested for his murder. Pavlos, whose lyrics carried an anti-white, anti-fascist message was targeted by Giorgos while watching a football match at a cafe with some friends.
After 30 months spent held in remand, Giorgos walked free on Friday—he’s served the maximum amount of time in temporary detention, and the case still hasn’t gone to trial.
Unfortunately, he has not been cleared of these charges & remains on house arrest.
Good luck & godspeed to this brave man.
