  • [01] Golden Dawn MPs receive extension to testify

    Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avghi) MPs Giorgos Germenis, Panagiotis Iliopoulos and Stathis Boukouras who were sent on Monday before the three appeals court investigating magistrates on charges of setting up and participating in a criminal organisation asked and received an extension for 7 December in order to prepare their testimonies.

    It is reminded that the parliament, n 16 October, have voted to lift their immunity.

    According to a protected witness testimony, Germenis has played a central role in the training of new recruits as well as in attacks against migrants. Similar testimonies involve Boukouras in a ring selling protection to stores in the wider area of Corinth prefecture, where he was elected on the Golden Dawn ticket.

    Moreover, witnesses testified that Iliopoulos has a leading rank in the party and plays a main role in the organisation.

    Approximately 150 supporters of Golden Dawn gathered outside the court buildings and were shouting support slongans, including "No jail for nationalists".
