Suspects charged with terrorism for attacking Golden Dawn offices

·

Two persons have been arrested in an operation mounted by the counter-terrorism squad in Athens, for targeting the offices of right-right party Golden Dawn, on Tuesday.

The two men, who were arrested on Monday, are Greeks aged 36 and 35 years old, respectively.

According to the counter-terrorism service, an investigation has implicated them in the planting of a makeshift explosive-incendiary device that set fire to Golden Dawn offices in Athens.

The two suspects were led before an examining magistrate on Tuesday and given until December 19 to prepare their testimony regarding the charges against them. These include acts of terrorism, forming a terrorist organisation with the aggravating instance of possession and construction of explosives, intent to cause grievous bodily harm, destruction of property, reckless driving that endangered foreign property and caused serious injury and damage to foreign property whose purpose is something that serves the common good.
