Three more Golden Dawn MPs to face criminal gang charges

Three more Golden Dawn MPs are due to face magistrates today on charges of being part of a criminal organization

Giorgos Germenis, Panayiotis Iliopoulos and Stathis Boukouras, who had their parliamentary immunity lifted last month, face the same charges that have been brought against party leader Nikos Michaloliakos and another five deputies.

The investigation into Golden Dawn’s activities is being handled by three magistrates: Ioanna Klapa, Maria Dimitropoulou and Maria Simitzi.

The Golden Dawn MPs are expected to ask for time to study the case file before testifying.

The judges are also planning to bring charges against three party members in connection with a violent assault on members of the Communist Party in Perama.
