The Greek prosecutor in the trial of the criminal organization Golden Dawn proposed that the jail sentences of up to 13 years imposed on its leaders last week should be suspended.
Only Giorgos Roupakias, sentenced for life for the murder of rapper Pavlos Fyssas, should be led to jail.
The prosecutor, Adamantia Oikonomou, said that according to Greek criminal law, in order not to suspend sentences, convicts must either be suspected of fleeing, have an unknown residence in the country or have made preparatory acts to leave.
If accepted by the court, the proposal means that the leadership of Golden Dawn who were convicted of running a criminal organization will not go to prison until their appeal is tried.
