Upholding an earlier conviction, an Athens appeals court handed a 12-month suspended sentence on Monday to a psychiatrist who was convicted of supplying false certificates to members of the extreme-right Golden Dawn party which allowed them to receive gun licenses.

Konstantinos Paraschakis, who was also an MP candidate for Golden Dawn, had initially received a 15-month sentence.

At the time of his offenses in 2012, he worked at the Attica Psychiatric Hospital.
