Greek court brands neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn a criminal organization

Golden Dawn was founded in 1980 by Nikolaos Michaloliakos, a Holocaust denier, and was Greece’s third-largest political party in 2015 during the country’s decade-long financial crisis, though it never got more than 10 percent of the national vote. The party was voted out of the Hellenic Parliament in the 2019 election, despite the fact that out of Greece’s 703 regional councilors, 22 belong to the party.
