It was the moment Magda Fyssa had been awaiting for more than five years since the brutal stabbing of her son, Pavlos, by a Golden Dawn operative in Athens.
Today’s rulings by the court included dozens of charges brought against 68 members of the political party, including top officials and former members of Greek parliament.
But the announcement by the court that Golden Dawn supporter Giorgos Roupakias– the man who stabbed the 34-year-old rapper just after midnight on September 18, 2013– was guilty… This was the moment Magda Fyssa had been waiting for.
“You did it, my son,” Mrs. Fyssa erupted in painful joy, hands in the air, outside the courthouse. “You did it, my son.”
The video of Mrs. Fyssa has gone viral on Greek social media.
