Golden Dawn crime probe may implicate more MPs

Investigating magistrates handling a criminal probe into the neofascist Golden Dawn have new evidence that is likely to lead to charges being brought against more party MPs early next year, Kathimerini has learned.

The new evidence was found during the inspection of computers found at the homes of several prominent party deputies, including Christos Pappas, Giorgos Germenis and Panayiotis Iliopoulos, who already face criminal charges. It is likely that magistrates Ioanna Klapa and Maria Dimitropoulou, who are perusing documents and other evidence seized from the homes of party leader Nikos Michaloliakos and party spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris, will resummon some of the nine MPs already facing charges for additional testimony.

Germenis, Iliopoulos and another lawmaker, Stathis Boukouras, are due to defend themselves before the magistrates on January 11 on charges of belonging to a criminal organization.
