Greek far-right party gets EU representation

Controversial party Golden Dawn sends deputies to become part of European parliament for first time ever.

    Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party has sent deputies to become part of the European parliament for the first time.

    The respectability implied by parliamentary representation contrasts sharply with the controversial image of the anti-immigrant party, which has seen eight of its members, including its leader, jailed over various crimes.

    A government investigation into Golden Dawn escalated after one of its supporters was blamed for the murder of a left-wing rapper last September.
