Parliament strips immunity from Golden Dawn leader over ‘hate speech’ charges
The Greek Parliament on Wednesday voted by an overwhelming majority of 195 votes in favour, six against and two abstentions, to strip Golden Dawn leader Nikos Mihaloliakos of his immunity from prosecution in order that he might face charges for a speech that was considered to incite violence.
Lawmakers rejected a request to strip the immunity of Independent Greeks (ANEL) party leader Panos Kammenos for building code violations in a building that his party rents from Kammenos’ father by 157 votes against, 21 in favour and 25 abstentions.
