The Supreme Court asked Parliament on Friday to decide whether to lift the immunity of Golden Dawn MP Ilias Panayiotaros, who is accused of trying to disrupt a trial in 2011.

Panayiotaros is alleged to have led a group of people that swore and acted aggressively when 39 members of the Greek army’s special forces unit (OYK) went on trial at a Piraeus court for chanting nationalist slogans at a military parade a year earlier.
