Golden Dawn MP stands trial over 2007 attack on student

 British documentary featuring party candidate’s hate speech handed to prosecutor

Golden Dawn MP and spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris is scheduled to stand trial on Thursday in connection with the mugging of a student in 2007

Kasidiaris is accused of being part of a group of five people that attacked the student, who was beaten and stabbed and had his identity card stolen.

The lawmaker’s immunity was lifted by his fellow MPs in order for him to stand trial.

A witness to the incident claims the students assailants were driven away in Kasidiaris’s car.

The deputy denies involvement in the attack.

Meanwhile, a prosecutor on Wednesday ordered an investigation into a documentary aired on Britain’s Channel 4 showing a parliamentary candidate for Golden Dawn calling for immigrants to be made into soap.

The documentary, titled “The Cleaners” and shot by Greek film student Constantinos Georgousis, who followed Alexandros Plomaritis around Athens for a month last summer, shows party members talking openly about beating immigrants. It also shows Plomaritis saying, “We are ready to turn on the ovens,” and calling for immigrants to be turned into soap and lampshades.

Kasidiaris on Wednesday described the video as “tragicomic” and the opinions expressed as “laughable.”
