Golden Dawn’s jailed former deputy leader submits request for early release


Imprisoned former deputy leader of Greece’s far-right Golden Dawn party, Ilias Kasidiaris has submitted a request to judicial authorities for early release from jail.

The announcement of his appeal comes days after the head of Golden Dawn, Nikos Michaloliakos, was given conditional early release after completing some of his term.

Greek Community of Melbourne condemns release of Golden Dawn’s far-right leader, Nikos Mihaloliakos.

According to Ekathimerini, initially sentenced to 13 years imprisonment, Kasidiaris submitted a request for his release on April 26 to the management of the prison in Domokos, Central Greece.

Kasidiaris has already served three-fifths of his sentence, and according to his lawyer, Vasso Pantazi, “has a clean disciplinary record.”

The decision is expected to be looked over by the same bodies that decided on releasing Michaloliakos on May 3.
