Prosecutors propose strict conditions for Golden Dawn MPs’ release

Two public prosecutors on Tuesday proposed strict conditions to accompany the scheduled release on March 29 of Golden Dawn chief Nikos Michaloliakos (photo) and the party’s second-in-command, Christos Pappas, after their 18-month maximum detention period ends.

Both Golden Dawn officials are facing charges of organizing and leading a criminal organization.

The prosecutors proposed that Michaloliakos post 125,000 euros in bail and be placed under house arrest following his release.

In the case of Pappas, the prosecutors proposed that he be banned from leaving the Attica region and that he report to his local precinct three times a month, among other conditions.

A council of judges is to rule on both proposals in the coming days.
