Athens mayor files criminal complaint against Golden Dawn MP

Yiorgos Kaminis claims Giorgos Germenis accidentally hit a 12-year-old girl after trying to punch him

The May 2 alleged attack came after police prevented Golden Dawn members from distributing free food only to Greeks at Syntagma

Golden Dawn MP Giorgos Germenis (R) Golden Dawn MP Giorgos Germenis (R) The mayor of Athens has made a criminal complaint against a Golden Dawn MP who allegedly tried to punch him after municipal authorities banned the extremist party from distributing food on Syntagma Square on Holy Thursday.

Yiorgos Kaminis claims Giorgos Germenis accidentally hit a 12-year-old girl instead before bodyguards grabbed him.

The May 2 alleged attack came after police prevented Golden Dawn members from distributing free food only to Greeks at Syntagma.

Golden Dawn, which holds 18 seats in parliament, has been repeatedly linked with attacks on immigrants.

Germenis enjoys parliamentary immunity from prosecution, and if charges are brought MPs would have to vote on whether to lift it.

Golden Dawn said Wednesday it would also take legal action against Kaminis.
