Greece to Charge First Group of neo-Nazi Lawmakers
A first batch of lawmakers from the Greek neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn are to be indicted Tuesday on criminal charges as part of a crackdown on the group following the murder of an anti-fascist musician.
Four Golden Dawn MPs, along with a dozen-plus lower-ranking members, will appear at an Athens court on charges ranging from attempted and voluntary homicide to belonging to a criminal organisation. If convicted, the defendants face sentences of at least 10 years in prison.
