Golden Dawn deputy caught driving car with fake license plates

A Golden Dawn candidate in last parliamentary elections was arrested near Ioannina, in central Greece, late Thursday for driving a luxury SUV with fake license plates.

Reports said Iason Bibos had handed in his genuine license plates in 2012 in order to avoid paying road tax.

Bibos, who has reportedly broken ties with the neofascist party, was to face a prosecutor on Friday.

The incident took place a few days after Michalis Liapis, a former Greek transport minister, was arrested in Athens after running a stop sign in a luxury SUV that was discovered to have fake license plates.
