The public prosecutor’s office is to forward to parliament a case file against Golden Dawn MP Yiorgos Yermenis following an attempted assault on Athens Mayor Yiorgos Kaminis. The Golden Dawn MP’s parliamentary immunity must be lifted before he can be charged with verbal assault and attempted bodily harm. Yermenis – also known as Kaiadas – on Thursday attempted to assaulted Kaminis inside a municipal stall, after the mayor successfully stopped a Greeks-only food handout on Syntagma square by the extreme-right party.
Kaminis’ bodyguards intervened to block the punch but a 12-year-old girl was injured in the stall, which was located around 100 metres from the Golden Dawn headquarters. Yermenis also reached for a gun in the incident.
