Golden Dawn MP Kasidiaris acquitted of charges

Golden Dawn deputy Ilias Kasidiaris has been acquitted of charges following his trial at an Athens courthouse on Thursday.

Kasidiaris was accused of being part of a group of five people that attacked a student, who was beaten and stabbed and had his identity card stolen, in the Athens Polytechnic in 2007.

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

Kasidiaris, who denied any involvement in the incident, was acquitted due to doubt.
