Golden Dawn MP back in jail after violating release terms

Golden Dawn lawmaker Yiannis Lagos on Tuesday was returned to Attica’s high-security Korydallos Prison, from which he was freed in March following the completion of the mandatory 18-month maximum in pre-trial custody, after he allegedly violated the terms of his release.

According to judicial sources, Lagos repeatedly violated the condition that he remain under house arrest with the exception of appearances in Parliament.

On three occasions documented by authorities, the MP is alleged to have failed to return to his home, which is under police surveillance, visiting bars, staying in a hotel one night and visiting GD’s offices in Perama on another occasion.
