Golden Dawn calls MP's move to go independent 'despicable'

Golden Dawn on Monday issued a statement in response to a decision over the weekend by one of its deputies to continue as an independent.

The neo-Nazi party said that the MP’s decision was an act of “apostasy” and called his behavior “despicable.”

Chrysovalantis Alexopoulos, an MP for Larissa in central Greece, on Saturday announced his decision to continue as an independent “following a series of revelations regarding the activities of [GD] members, which have been defined as criminal, and which naturally I had no knowledge of.”
