The Greek Parliament has voted to lift the parliamentary immunity of Golden Dawn MP Artemis Matthaiopoulos to face charges of robbery.
During a vote Wednesday, 198 of the 203 deputies present backed the decision. Four MPs voted against and one present.
Matthaiopoulos denied the charges which he said are politically-motivated.
“The procedure is a circus. It’s completely hypocritical and I am leaving with the rest of my fellow party members,” he said.
