ATHENS – A lawmaker from a Nazi-inspired Greek party, who achieved notoriety for assaulting two female left-wing colleagues during a live TV talk show, has gone on trial over the incident.

An Athens court is expected to rule March 6 Friday on grievous bodily harm charges against Ilias Kasidiaris, one of several Golden Dawn lawmakers in pre-trial custody on separate charges for allegedly running a criminal organization.

Footage from the June 2012 show showed Kassidiaris repeatedly slapping one woman and throwing a glass of water at another before running away. The attack followed an exchange of verbal abuse.

If convicted Kasidiaris faces a minimum three-month prison sentence.

About 100 supporters of Golden Dawn — now Greece’s third largest party — gathered outside the courthouse in a show of support.
