13 years in prison for the main leaders of the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn (GD) party and life imprisonment for the man convicted of the murder of musician Pavlos Fyssas were proposed this Tuesday by the Greek prosecutor, Adamandia Economou. She also suggested six to eight years in prison for accomplices in Fyssas’s murder, seven years for other former GD lawmakers, or five for the four former MPs for whom the court accepted leniency reasons.
Regarding the violent attack on Egyptian fishermen, she suggested seven to ten years for those involved. Defense lawyers are now expected to offer counterarguments to the proposals, and then the court will decide final sentences, either later Tuesday or Wednesday. The proposals follow a two-day court discussion involving defense attorneys who have argued for more lenient sentences.
