MPs' panel votes to lift immunity of far-right deputy

Parliament’s ethics committee on Tuesday voted in favor of lifting Golden Dawn MP Ilias Kasidiaris’s immunity for prosecution in connection to an incident last year when he attacked two lawmakers on live television.

During the next plenary session the House will vote on whether Kasidiaris should be tried for throwing water at SYRIZA deputy Rena Dourou and slapping Communist Party lawmaker Liana Kanelli during a morning talk show on ANT1.

The incident occurred on June 7 in the buildup to national elections and catapulted the far-right politician to international notoriety.

Kasidiaris, also the party spokesman, disappeared after the incident to avoid arrest.
