Whereabouts of far-right politician unknown, police say


Greek police say they are unable to find the far-right politician who assaulted two female left-wing politicians on a live TV talk show.

“We don’t know his whereabouts,” said a police source.

Ilias Kasidiaris was unrepentant for the on-screen attack. He is the official spokesman of the neo-fascist Golden Dawn party and continued to remain in hiding hours before he was due to appear in court today on complicity charges in an unrelated attack on a student five years ago.

Kasidiaris assaulted Liana Kanelli, spokeswoman of the KKE communist party, and Rena Dourou of the Syriza party during the show.

Greek TV yesterday reported that while he was still missing, there was speculation the 31-year-old former commando would address a pre-election rally in Athens. – (Guardian service)
