Greek Parliament on Wednesday voted to lift the immunity from prosecution of two deputies, New Democracy’s Vassilis Giogiakas and Golden Dawn’s Ilias Kasidiaris.

Gogiakas is involved in a case regarding the installation of photovoltaics on a plot of land during his tenure as governor of Thesprotia, northwestern Greece.

Kasidiaris’s immunity was lifted in connection to an incident outside the Athens court complex where he allegedly attacked a cameraman. The Golden Dawn spokesman is also a defendant on an ongoing trial over the party’s alleged criminal activities.
