Golden Dawn MP to face charges for 2005 mugging

Supreme Court prosecutor Efterpi Koutzamani asked Parliament on Tuesday to lift the immunity of Golden Dawn lawmaker Artemis Matthaiopoulos so he can face charges of theft in connection with a mugging in central Athens in 2005.

According to the case file submitted by Koutzamani to the House, Matthaiopoulos and several accomplices used threats and violence to steal the bag of a Greek citizen in the area of the Ancient Agora in August 2005.
