Golden Dawn chief, wife, released from house arrest


Golden Dawn chief Nikos Michaloliakos and his wife Eleni Zaroulia, also an MP with the ultranationalist party, were granted release from house arrest on Wednesday.

The pair, who are awaiting trial on charges of running a criminal organization, will be allowed to leave their home on the condition that they report to their local police station three times a month.

A former lawmaker and one of their many co-defendants, Dimitris Koukoutsis, was also released from house arrest this week, following the adjournment of the trial until September 8.
