GD’s Ka­sidiaris to face trial for as­sault in 2013

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

MPs yesterday voted to lift Golden Dawn spokesman Ilias Ka­sidiaris’s im­mu­nity from pros­e­cu­tion so that he can be tried in con­nec­tion with an as­sault on a cam­era­man out­side the main Athens court com­plex in Oc­to­ber 2013. Ka­sidiaris was cap­tured on video push­ing and kick­ing the cam­era­man as he and two other ne­o­fas­cist party MPs were granted con­di­tional re­lease. Ka­sidiaris, who is on trial with the rest of GD leg­is­la­tors for run­ning a crim­i­nal or­ga­ni­za­tion, also faces a string of other charges, mostly in­volv­ing phys­i­cal as­sault. Par­lia­ment’s re­duced sum­mer ses­sion also voted yesterday to lift the im­mu­nity of New Democ­racy law­maker Vas­silis Gio­giakas so he can face trial re­lat­ing to a pho­to­voltaics in­stal­la­tion on a plot of land dur­ing his ten­ure as gover­nor of Th­es­pro­tia, north­west­ern Greece.
