Golden Dawn spokesman sues candidates he attacked on TV

Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn) spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris filed suits on Monday against the two parliamentary candidates he attacked last week during a TV panel discussion.

Kasidiaris accused Liana Kanelli of the Communist Party (KKE), who he punched three times, and SYRIZA’s Rena Dourou, who he drenched in water, of unprovoked verbal abuses.

The Golden Dawn representative also sued Antenna TV, which hosted the program, of attempting to hold him against his wishes and journalist Antonis Delatolas, who was on the panel, of abuse of power.

Kasidiaris claims that Delatolas called first instance prosecutor Eleni Raikou to ask her to issue an arrest warrant and alleges that the journalist was on unusually friendly terms with the judicial official.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Kasidiaris after the incident on live TV but police were not able to track him down in the 48 hours needed so he could be fastracked through the justice system.

Kasidiaris issued a statement over the weekend saying the incident had been staged with the aim of making him and Golden Dawn look bad.

Kasidiaris was due to appear in court on Monday to face charges of being an accomplice in a violent attack on a student in 2007. The neo-Nazi politician denies driving the car that carried the victim’s attackers.

The case, however, was postponed until September 3.
