A doctor was arrested and charged with inciting hatred after posting a “Jews Not Welcome” note on his office door, police in Greece said.

Thessaloniki Police said that a 57-year-old neurologist has been charged with inciting racial hatred and weapons possession.

The doctor, who has not been identified, has acknowledged that he is a member of the extreme right Golden Dawn party. The police arrested the man after they received a tip that the doctor had put a sign outside his office saying: “Jews Not Welcome.”

The sign was written in German, police said. Police recovered twelve knives and three daggers, two with inscriptions of Nazi symbols, and pills without a prescription, while raiding the doctor’s home.
