ATHENS – Three detained lawmakers from the extremist Golden Dawn party will be let out to be sworn in to offices they won while being prosecuted on charges of running a criminal gang.

Party spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris, Panagiotis Iliopoulos and Nikos Kouzilos have been granted special permission by a prosecutor in order to attend swearing-in ceremonies scheduled to take place on Aug. 29-31.

Kasidiaris, who’s facing an array of charges including involving weapons, is expected to be sworn in as a City of Athens Municipal Councilor on Aug. 29, the same day that Iliopoulos will be sworn in as a Regional Councilor in Thessaly, central Athens. On Aug. 31, Kouzilos will be sworn in as a Municipal Councilor in the port city of Piraeus.

Meanwhile, an anti-racist rally is expected to take place on Korai Square in central Athens, at noon on Aug. 31 in protest at activities critics said are engaged in by Golden Dawn, including beating immigrants, which the party has denied.
