Greek police seek prosecution of rightist lawmaker

Greek police are seeking the prosecution of a far-right lawmaker for his behavior during a protest in Athens against a play depicting Jesus as gay.

The protest took place Thursday outside a theater on what was meant to be the opening night of U.S. playwright Terrence McNallys play Corpus Christi. The performance was cancelled after dozens of Christian activists and several lawmakers with the far-right Golden Dawn party rallied, shouting at theater-goers. Police detained four protesters.

An online video shows Christos Pappas, Golden Dawns parliamentary spokesman, pulling the detained man out of the hands of police officers as they tried to put him in a police van.

Police did not name Pappas, but said Friday that they wanted a Golden Dawn lawmaker prosecuted for pulling a detainee away from police. [AP]
