Greek lawmaker faces criminal charges after brawl in parliament – ​​POLITICO

“That will be decided by the judges,” Floros shouted anyway, to which Grammenos replied “Shut up, you scum!”

The tension rose a notch and the two men left the plenary room. Photos have emerged in Greek media that appear to show Floros putting Grammenos in a headlock and throwing him to the ground.

Grammenos was transferred to the Parliament clinic. A party official later told POLITICO that he was taken to hospital with a broken nose and wrist. Floros was arrested and taken to the police station.

He will be accused of having violated article 157 of the penal code, according to which any attack against a parliamentarian in the exercise of his functions constitutes an offense and risks up to ten years in prison.

“It’s an unfortunate moment,” his lawyer Vaso Pantazi told reporters. “No one approves of such an act, but there is a human condition. Before this unfortunate incident, there was a verbal attack of incredible vulgarity.

Other lawmakers have called for criminal charges.
