Golden Dawn MP Boukouras appears in court to answer allegations

Golden Dawn MP Stathis Boukouras appeared at Athens’s main court complex on Monday to answer allegations that he led attacks on migrants and had hidden cache of firearms.

The lawmaker told journalists that he was there to prove that a secret witness who informed magistrates about alleged illegal activities by Golden Dawn members in Corinthia, Boukouras’s constituency, were false.

The witness said he was a member of the party until June 2012 and that attacks on migrants were encouraged.

Another secret witness gave evidence against another Golden Dawn deputy that has yet to be charged, Giorgos Germenis.
