Security fear at Muslim Assoc

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Muslim Association of Greece (MAG) is going to step up security at its premises in Athens after receiving a threatening letter last week, its president, Naim Elghandour, told Kathimerini on Tuesday.The letter, written on paper bearing the Golden Dawn symbol but not necessarily sent by the far-right party, warned Muslims to leave Greece or “from July 1 onwards those who are still here will be slaughtered like chickens on the road.”Elghandour said MAG would place CCTV cameras at its headquarters and rely on police to guard outside the building. He said the letter could be a hoax but the language used suggested it was written by an adult.“It is the first time there has been a threat against Muslims and not immigrants,” Elghandour said.last_img read more
