Ex-Golden Dawn MP Stathis Boukouras released on bail

Former Golden Dawn MP Stathis Boukouras was released from pre-trial custody on Wednesday following a ruling by the council of appeals judges.

Boukouras, who now stands as an independent in Parliament, was on Wednesday ordered by judges to post 10,000 euros in bail and was banned from leaving the country.

The trial of Golden Dawn MPs and members is expected to start in early 2015.
