An Athens court is expected to announce sentences for the leadership and members of the neonazi Golden Dawn party on Wednesday after sitting at noon. 

Earlier in the day, a prosecutor called for 13-year prison sentences for the party's leadership and a life sentence for GD member Giorgos Roupakias for the murder of leftist rapper Pavlos Fyssas in 2013. 

The prosecutor also proposed prison terms of between 5 and 7 years for other former MPs of Golden Dawn.  

The terms proposed for Roupakias' accomplices in the Fyssas killing are eight years with between 7 and 10 years for those found guilty of attacks on three Egyptian fishermen in 2012.
