Troktiko – Controversial Greek blog administrator is assassinated

Greek journalist Socrates Giolias has been assassinated.

BREAKING NEWS – The administrator of the most popular political and social blog in Greece, “Troktiko” – the Rodent – was assassinated after being shot with 20 bullets.

Known for its controversial political articles, stigmatizing the former, right wing government of New Democracy, Troktiko became the most popular, Greek-owned destination in Greece. With an Alexa ranking of 869 globally, surpassed many international web sites in traffic.

The administrator of Troktiko, journalist writer and radio producer Socrates Giolias aged 37, was executed with a barrage of bullets, outside his residence around 5:20am local time today, in Ilioupolis – a suburb of Athens, in Greece.

According to his wife, who gave a shocking testimony to police, several individuals, dressed up and posing as security personnel rang their home doorbell to inform him that his car was being stolen; as soon as he followed them he was gunned down. The individuals escaped in a Honda Civic which was later found burned up.

Due to the constant flow of information regarding past and present political and financial scandals in Greece, Troktiko acquired a huge followship of readers but also apparently made enemies in the dark areas of anarchists and leftists that are known to be in direct contact with common criminals in Greece.

In comparison, in 2002, a long standing marxist organization, November 17th, was disbanded in Greece after almost 30 years of active pillaging, murders of American and Greek officials and other acts of terrorism. Upon their arrest, the gang of perpetrators were found to be common thieves and criminals utilizing their leftist political agenda as a facade, all while maintaining bank accounts with millions of euros. Since then, smaller terrorist factions belonging to the same ideological groups have attempted to fill the void left behind by November 17th, with minimal success.

Today is a sad day for journalism and for law and order in Greece. Our deep condolences to the family of Socrates Giolias who lost his life in such an unfair and untimely manner.

    I am truly shocked by this act of violence and social terrorism. The perpetrators are apparently paid assassins, executing a death contract. The Greek society has suffered enough through the years but has managed to stick together regardless of the external pressure exercised on top of the financial situation. Socrates Giolias questioned the authority of many self-professed “patriots” through his blog. By killing Socrates in a mafia style assassination, the perpetrators are attempting to rape and terrorize the minds of Greeks, the Press and those that believe in Democracy – by silencing the voices of those who are not afraid to speak the truth. Socrates leaves behind his pregnant wife and a 2 year old son.

    In a first time I tought it was another invented person/story you was talking about.
    But after click the blog link and check global news feed it appears it’s a real sad story.
    Certainly a sign of the mess there is today in Greece.
    RIP Troktiko.

    Francois, the stories on DomainGang are often humorous spin-offs of reality, or attempts to define aspects of domaining from a humorous standpoint. However, there are plenty of “100%” stories, scoops and interviews covered by DomainGang. We would never joke about something as serious as an assassination of another human being.

    The current situation with the assassinated Greek blogger, Socrates Giolias, takes us temporarily off the regular course of publishing articles, out of respect for his loss.

    I’ve already canceled the articles that were due to go live today.

    A very sad day for journalism and Greece.

    Very saddened but expected. Greece is not European (not the new Greece anyway) in culture and even 30 years of EU money failed to make us in a decent state.

    Condolences to the family but know that it will get a lot worse IMO, Greece is collapsing.

    Social and thought terrorism, plain and simple. Their not even trying to hide it anymore. Not just Greece, just look at Poland and all the top 100 people! Look at Canada in Toronto during the G-20! If you are anti globalization/NWO or pro Nation, you are as good as dead!

    Terrorism by the state. Plain and scary!

    But Free people will never gove up, I just wish we have a few million more like Socrates…

    As tragic as it sounds, this is the second time that a man named Socrates was murdered by the Republic of Athens.
