Three MPs of Greece’s neo-Nazi party “Golden Dawn” were remanded in custody on January 11 2014 pending trial on charges of belonging to a criminal group.

Stathis Boukouras, Yorgos Germenis and Panagiotis Iliopoulos face serious charges in connection with a series of attacks, including the murder of anti-racism activist Pavlos Fyssas.

All three denied charges against them in a marathon plea session. A trial date has not yet been set.

Nine of Golden Dawn’s 18 lawmakers have been charged with participating in or leading a criminal group.
