The trial of 69 members of the Greek neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn, charged with running a criminal organisation, began Monday without the leader of the party or the other main defendants.
Golden Dawn founder Nikos Michaloliakos and most of the party's MPs were not in the dock of the specially built courtroom inside a high security prison near Athens for the opening of the trial, according to an AFP reporter. The case is expected to last several months.
