Ousted Golden Dawn MP Kostas Barbaroussis arrested in Penteli
Police arrested the MP Kostas Barbaroussis, now ousted from the far-right Golden Dawn party with which he was elected, at a house in the Athens suburb of Penteli shortly after 8:00 on Monday.
The counter-terrorism squad officers were executing a warrant for his arrest issued over his statements in Parliament, when he had incited the military to arrest the president and prime minister. Barbaroussis did not put up any resistance when the officers came to arrest him.
The MP has been charged with the criminal offence of taking preparatory actions to commit high treason.
