Parliament Lifts Immunity From 6 Golden Dawn MPs

By on 16.10.13

The parliamentary plenum on Wednesday lifted the immunity of six deputies of the far-right Golden Dawn party following roll call voting.

According to the voting results, 246 MP voted in the affirmative, while one vote was found to be invalid.

As such the immunity of Efstathios Boukouras, Giorgos Germenis, Elias Kassidiaris, Ilias Panagiotaros, Chrysovalantis Alexopoulos and Panagiotis Iliopoulos was lifted.

The request for the lifting of immunity by prosecuting magistrates relates to Boukouras', Germenis' and Iliopoulos' involvement in what the press has been telling us is a criminal organisation, while for the rest to older criminal cases was submitted to parliament.
