Jailed Golden Dawn MPs Given Leave to Attend Swearing-In Ceremonies

Golden Dawn_MPThe imprisoned MPs of the Greek ultra nationalist Golden Dawn party were given a special leave from Korydallos prison, in Athens, Greece, on Wednesday in order to attend swearing-in ceremonies as they have been elected municipal and regional councilors in the last local authority elections.
Ilias Kasidiaris and Panagiotis Iliopoulos will be sworn in on Friday, as municipal councilor in Athens and regional councilor in Thessaly. Nikos Kouzilos will be sworn in as a Piraeus municipal councilor on Sunday.
The Golden Dawn MPs are in custody on charges of forming a criminal organization. The investigation over the party’s action started after the murder of left-wing rap artist Pavlos Fyssas by a party supporter last September.
Investigation revealed nazi and fascist memorabilia as well as illegal weapons in the possession of several Golden Dawn members. Their trial is expected to start in mid-November.
