ATHENS, Greece — Two lawmakers of the extreme right Golden Dawn party have been jailed on charges of playing a pivotal role in a criminal organization and a third facing similar accusations will testify to prosecutors Sunday.
Three other lawmakers, including Golden Dawn leader Nikos Michaloliakos and his deputy, have been jailed since October.
Giorgos Yermenis and Panayiotis Iliopoulos testified for several hours to two appeals court prosecutors. Yermenis, also known as Kaiadas from his stint as a bassist with Greek-Norwegian black metal band Naer Mataron, has been accused by witnesses of training Golden Dawn members to attack migrants.
Another lawmaker, Efstathios Boukouras, will testify Sunday morning. Apart from membership in Golden Dawn, he faces charges of extortion.
Golden Dawn has 18 legislators in the 300-member Parliament.
