Golden Dawn neo-Nazi party to be dismantled, Greek PM says

( Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras vowed to eliminate the Golden Dawn neo-Nazi party just days after his government began a widespread crackdown against it. The Greek government also announced plans to present a bill targeting hate speech to the country's parliament.

The Greek government had already arrested the Golden Dawn party head and other parliament members in the wake of the recent murder of popular singer Pavlos Fyssas by a member of the party. “They are a criminal group of people, who will be tried in a democratic manner,” Samaras said at an American Jewish Committee reception in his honor on Monday.
