A series of vicious slaps and a glass of water to the face were unleashed on two left-wing female deputies by the spokesman for Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party during a live TV debate. A warrant for the politician’s arrest has been issued.
Golden Dawn spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris flew into a rage during a heated argument with radical left Syriza party member Rena Dourou on a morning TV talk show in Athens.
Kasidiaris was already agitated after Dourou made reference to a criminal case pending against the far-right spokesman. Papadakis appeared in court on Monday for his alleged role in a 2007 armed robbery which saw a postgraduate student viciously stabbed. His trial was postponed for a week.
