Golden Dawn MP Ilias Kasidiaris to be remanded in custody

Far-right Golden Dawn MP Ilias Kasidiaris was on Thursday imprisoned on remand after giving additional testimony on a charge of weapons possession with the intent to supply a criminal organisation.

The decision to remand him in custody was taken jointly by the examining magistrates and public prosecutors handling the case.

Kasidiaris was the last of the party’s MPs to testify in the case.

Supporters of the party gathered outside the courthouse, shouting abuse.
