Neo-Nazi MP and friends beat officer over traffic violation

Golden Dawn deputy Constantinos Barbarousis has been implicated, along with a relative and at least three other men, in a violent beating of a police officer at a coffee shop in the village of Fiteies in the region of Aetoloacarnania in central Greece Monday. According to reports, the incident followed an altercation between one of the extreme-right lawmaker’s relatives and the officer over a traffic violation earlier in the day. The policeman was off duty when he was attacked by his assailants, who, according to witnesses, pulled up outside the cafe in two cars, with Barbarousis and four other men inside. All five barged into the shop and attacked the victim using clubs, brass knuckles and bats. The officer suffered head injuries and required stitches, while his brother and a friend, who were also present during the incident, suffered light injuries. Witnesses also said the attackers were only stopped after the intervention of other customers at the shop, which they left hurling abuse and threats.
