The greek national socialists invaded a ship and tried to punish a Pakistani immigrant charged in the beating and sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl on this Greek island when he was transferred to Piraeus.
The immigrant admitted to the attack and apologized in court to the girl, who is still hospitalized in serious condition and to her family. He is charged with attempted manslaughter, rape and robbery, and faced a Syros prosecutor to give his deposition. He said he beat the girl’s head on some rocks when she wouldn’t turn over a cell phone he was trying to steal. She was found with the bottom of her bathing suit removed.
The Pakistani admitted to attacking the girl after a second test of his DNA matched a sample taken from the victim, a police spokesman said.
During his moving from Syros to Piraeus, while the ship had just arrived in the port, police said a group of 20 Golden Dawn members came on the ship and tried to reach the police van where he had been placed. Seconds later, the van screamed off the ship, showing a broken windshield.
Greece has long been Europe’s main entry point for illegal immigrants from Asia and Africa seeking the social support in the West. Some 100,000 illegal immigrants are estimated to slip into the country every year and up to a million are believed to live in Greece, which has a total population of about 11 million.

Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias said Greece could not afford an invasion of immigrants. He blamed mass migration for bringing the country ‘to the brink of collapse’. ‘The country is being lost, What is happening now is Greece’s greatest invasion ever,’ he said.
