An investigation into Greek fugitive businessman Anastasios Pallis involved in illegally supplying Golden Dawn with weapons continued on Wednesday, after police officers confiscated dozens of weapons from his residence in Voula, southern Athens, late on Tuesday.
The probe, as Kathimerini online reports, was being conducted after retired British Army officer Edward Pringle-Stacey, who worked with Pallis, suggested to police that the businessmen had in his possession some 4,000 weapons, which may have been linked to Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn. According to the British witness, the weapons included AK-47 and M-16 assault rifles. On Wednesday the investigation centered on a sealed container which had not been claimed and had been registered in the name of an institute founded by Pallis. According to reports, a second container registered to the same institute contained a luxury car. On Tuesday police seized 21 automatic guns from Pallis's house.
