“The fugitive deputy leader of Greece’s extreme right-wing Golden Dawn party was jailed on Friday, hours after his capture by the police’s anti-terrorism division. Christos Pappas, a 59-year-old former lawmaker, had been on the run for nearly nine months, disappearing before a court sentenced him to 13 years in prison for participation in a criminal organization. He was arrested late Thursday on a ground floor apartment in an Athens suburb along with a 52-year-old woman who is facing charges of aiding and abetting a fugitive. Police led Pappas to a high security prison in central Greece following a brief court appearance. Pappas and 56 other Golden Dawn members were convicted last October, including the party’s leader Nikos Michaloliakos and other former lawmakers.” (07/02/21)
