Greek MPs to vote on stopping state funding for Golden Dawn

Parliament is due to vote on Wednesday, probably in a roll call ballot, on whether to enforce the suspension of state funding for Golden Dawn.

On October 23, the overwhelming majority of Greek lawmakers approved legislation that would allow authorities to stop taxpayers’ money going to parliamentary parties if their leaders, or a tenth of their lawmakers, are charged with involvement in a “criminal organization” or “acts of terrorism.”

The neo-Nazi party was due to receive 873,000 euros in state funding this year.
