Parliament Speaker Nikos Voutsis on Thursday asked the House’s council of experts to examine whether Golden Dawn MP Ilias Kasidiaris should face action for filming a committee session that took place behind closed doors for national security reasons.

Kasidiaris and his fellow far-right MP Christos Pappas were ejected from Wednesday’s session of the defense and foreign affairs committee after shouting abuse at Defense Minister Panos Kammenos and calling him a “traitor.”

Kasidiaris filmed the incident and the footage was later published online.
