Parliament to vote on lifting immunity of more GD MPs

Parliament is to vote on lifting the immunity from prosecution of another four lawmakers of the ultra-right Golden Dawn, and a former MP, on Wednesday, House Speaker Evangelos Meimarakis has informed the magistrates heading a criminal probe into the party.

The debate on whether or not to lift the immunity of Antonios Gregos, Polyvios Zisimopoulos, Artemis Matthaiopoulos, Constantinos Barbarousis and Chrysovalantis Alexopoulos, who quit the party last month, is to begin in Parliament’s plenary session on Wednesday and be followed immediately by a vote, Meimarakis told magistrates Ioanna Klapa and Maria Dimitropoulou in a letter on Saturday.

After Wednesday’s vote, MPs will be asked to approve the magistrates’ request for extra charges to be brought against detained party leader Nikos Michaloliakos and the MPs Christos Pappas, Yiannis Lagos, Giorgos Germenis, Panagiotis Iliopoulos, Nikos Michos and Stathis Boukouras, who quit the party last month.
