An arsenal of weapons and a small ‘Nazi museum’ full of World War II memorabilia including flags, military clothes, swastikas and photos of Hitler has been discovered by police in a 4,000 square metre property owned by fugitive Greek businessman, A. Pallis.
Authorities are investigating any link between the absent businessman and far-right party Golden Dawn and are trying to determine whether the uncovered guns have been used by the party’s members.
The Police counterterrorism squad has begun tracing the weapons but there has been no official statement about whether they were acquired through legal procedures.
Pallis’s caretaker was arrested during the search of the property in Athens suburb, Voula. He stated that he thought the ‘weapons were just exhibits’ and had only ‘museum value’.
