Greek Lawmaker Gets Jail Leave For City Seat

The jailed spokesman of Greece's extreme right Golden Party was been granted a brief leave from prison on Friday to take up his seat on Athens' new city council, after the party won 16 percent of the capital's vote capital in May municipal elections. Parliament member Ilias Kasidiaris, who was jailed last month on illegal firearms charges, ran as a candidate for Athens mayor in the May 18-25 poll. Golden Dawn supporters gathered outside, briefly challenging a police cordon and chanting "Greece belongs to Greeks," while party opponents also held separate demonstration that ended peacefully.
