Two parliament employees suspended, face dismissal

Two Greek Parliament employees have been temporarily suspended from duty it emerged over the weekend.

In the first case, Nikitas Siois, a former Golden Dawn deputy who conceded his Parliamentary seat to Artemis Matthaiopoulos in 2012 and was subsequently transferred to the ultranationalist party’s Parliamentary offices, was suspended over his involvement in a pending judicial inquiry.

In the second case, a female employee was suspended after failing to turn up for work over an unspecified period of time.

Both members of staff were expected to face the House’s disciplinary committee.
