Eleni Siunuri was dismissed at the behest of Health Minister Andreas Lykourentzos after she reportedly allowed around 30 Golden Dawn members to investigate whether the foreign nationals employed at Tripoli’s Panarkadiku Hospital’s had residence permits.
Four foreigners without residence permits were reportedly forced to leave the hospital.
Greece has seen a surge in neo-Nazi activity, with Golden Dawn winning an unprecedented 18 seats with 7 percent of the vote in June 2012 parliamentary elections.
