The leader of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party made a brief appearance in parliament on Wednesday for the first time since he was jailed eight months ago, hurling abuse at lawmakers before they voted to strip him of immunity from prosecution. In a rowdy session before the vote, which allows another round of criminal charges to be pressed against him and two other lawmakers, Nikos Mihaloliakos accused the government of a politically-motivated conspiracy to rob his party of votes.
