Charges sought against GD chief

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Supreme Court­pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice yesterday pe­ti­tioned Par­lia­ment to lift the im­mu­nity of Golden Dawn chief Nikos Michalo­li­akos so that he can be pros­e­cuted.

The case con­cerns taped tele­phone con­ver­sa­tions be­tween Michalo­li­akos and a party cell from Septem­ber 2011 in which he al­legedly makes threat­en­ing and deroga­tory re­marks aimed at jour­nal­ists, politi­cians and other prom­i­nent fig­ures who had been crit­i­cal of the far-right party.

In a re­lated de­vel­op­ment, Golden Dawn spokesman Ilias Ka­sidiaris was cleared by a ju­di­cial coun­cil yesterday of vi­o­lat­ing pri­vacy laws in con­nec­tion with the pub­li­ca­tion of a video show­ing him dis­cussing a ju­di­cial probe into the party with a close aid of then-prime min­is­ter An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras, Takis Bal­takos.
