Golden Dawn suspects barge their way from court

Three senior members of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party barged their way from court after being freed following charges of belonging to a criminal group.

The party's spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris was released on bail of 50,000 euros and has been prevented from leaving the country. Ilias Panagiotaros and Nikos Michos were released with travel restrictions while a fourth member, Yannis Lagos, was sent to jail pending trial.

All four denied charges against them in a plea session before an investigating magistrate that lasted more than 18 hours.

The four men were arrested on Saturday along with party leader Nikolaos Mihaloliakos and other party members.
