Court of Appeals Rejects Kasidiaris and Lagos Request for a Suspension of Their Sentence

December 19, 2022

ATHENS – The five-member Court of Appeals on Monday unanimously rejected requests submitted by Ilias Kasidiaris and Yiannis Lagos – both elected with far-right Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avghi) as an MP and MEP, respectively – asking for their early release from prison and a suspension of the execution of their sentence. The court adopted the recommendation made earlier on Monday by the court prosecutor, who judged that the two men, who have been convicted as leading members of Golden Dawn, which has been ruled a criminal organisation, should remain in prison.


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis welcomed the amendment tabled in parliament on Thursday about blocking convicted criminals from running in elections as formal or shadow heads of political party formations.
