GREECE’S parliament has voted to allow the prosecution of a leading ultra-right MP for assaulting two female left-wing politicians during a live television talk show.

Ilias Kassidiaris, 32, a spokesman for Golden Dawn, faces charges of attempted grievous bodily harm over last June’s incident, in which he repeatedly slapped one woman and threw a glass of water at another before running away. The attack followed an exchange of verbal abuse.
