Greece’s far-right Golden Dawn party filed lawsuits against three senior judicial officials leading investigation into the party’s alleged criminal activity. According to GD spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris, the action was taken against a public prosecutor and two investigative magistrates accusing them of “breach of duty “.
Kasidiaris claimed that the orders to detain lawmakers Germanis, Iliopoulos and Boukouras were signed per hand on January 9th 2014, that is before the three MPs appeared before the magistrate to give testimony on January 11th and 12th.
“There is no question of human error,” Kasidiaris said on Friday and spoke of “greatest political crime.”
Germenis, Iliopoulos and Boukouras were the last GD lawmakers to be remanded custody. Three more and the party leader are in custody since last October pending trial.
Kasidiaris is free on bail since October 2013.
No date has been set yet for the trial of the GD MPs.
The crackdown against Golden Dawn was launched after the murder of leftist rapper Petros Fyssas by a member of GD in Piraeus.
