Greek right-wing extremist who slapped woman sues
The Associated Press
The spokesman of Greece's extreme-right Golden Dawn party, who caused uproar last week by hitting one politician and throwing a glass of water over another during a live TV news program, is suing the two candidates and the television channel that hosted the show.
The move Monday by Ilias Kasidiaris, the 31-year-old spokesman for the extremist Golden Dawn party, is the latest twist in a bizarre political saga. Kasidiaris himself avoided an arrest warrant for the confrontation last Thursday, resurfacing late Sunday after the warrant had expired.
Kasidiris appeared at an Athens court Monday, flanked by other party members, to submit lawsuits against Communist Party candidate Liana Kanelli and Syriza party member Rena Dourou on charges of alleged unprovoked insults and against Antenna television for alleged illegal detention.
