"On Thursday March 13, the Greek Parliament's ethics committee proposed to lift the parliamentary immunity to criminal prosecution for three members of the far-right Golden Dawn (GD) party: Eleni Zaroulia (the wife of GD leader Nikos Michaloliakos), Michalis Arvanitis, and party spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris. The following day, Chrysovalantis Alexopoulos, a member of parliament, announced he was quitting the party in protest of its “criminal” activities, which he claimed to have no knowledge of. Then, on March 18, Stathis Boukouras, another of the party's MPs, was ousted from the GD after hinting he might quit too. Clearly, the Greek neo-fascists are in trouble—already six of the party’s MPs, including Michaloliakos, are in custody pending trial on charges of running a criminal organization."
