Greek prosecutor asks for lifting of parliamentary immunity for Golden Dawn MP

Greece’s Parliament has been asked to lift the immunity from prosecution of Golden Dawn lawmaker Eleni Zaroulia over a bullet found in a package of clothes that she had brought to Korydallos jail during a visit to jailed party leader Nikos Michaloliakos.

Michaloliakos, who is Zaroulias’s husband, faces charges of belonging to a criminal organization.

Authorities have launched a clampdown on the neo-Nazi party following the killing of a 34-year-old hip-hop artist Pavlos Fyssas in Keratsini, southeastern Attica, on September 17.

On Thursday, Giorgos Roupakias, a Golden Dawn member who has already confessed to the murder of Fyssas, faced a prosecutor to answer charges of belonging to a criminal organization. His deposition was postponed for Tuesday.
