Golden Dawn MP granted extension to testify

The two magistrates investigating the suspected criminal activities of far-right party Golden Dawn granted MP Eleni Zaroulia several days to prepare her testimony.

Zaroulia, who is answering to charges of belonging to and running a criminal organization, was given until June 17 to respond to the charges.

Speaking to journalists outside the Athens court Thursday, Zaroulia, who is also the wife of detained Golden Dawn leader Nikos Michaloliakos, said the charges are illegal and politically-motivated.
