“I did not invite journalists as defense witnesses” - Message by N.G. Michaloliakos
Declaration of N. G. Michalokiakos, General Secretary of the Golden Dawn about the call as witnesses of 'defense' of journalists Mr. Kouris, Pavlopoulos, Theodorakis:
"I learned from press reports that the investigating judges called to testify as defense witnesses the upper-known journalists. Never did I table any submissions, instead I tabled a request to deposit 12 people as witnesses for the defense, request that was arbitrarily rejected by the investigating judges and they called on only two of their own choice.
The reference to the specific journalists had done in my apology, as previously I had given to them, not only interviews which I had categorically stated that the Golden Dawn is a legitimate political party and does not endorse illegal acts. As a proof of my claim that there is video footage from these interviews which of course will be deposited in the Judicial Council, which will issue the relevant Ordinance to the trial if is necessary.
Some may have a weak memory, but there is evidence in sound and image. "
