The Golden Dawn’s municipal elections offices were ordered sealed by Athens Mayor Kostas Bakoyannis on Wednesday, following an appeal court’s decision condemning the former parliamentary party as a criminal organization and serving its members, including former MPs, criminal sentences.

The offices of “Elliniki Avgi gia tin Athina” (Greek Dawn for Athens) served as the headquarters of former MP Ilias Kasidiaris, who ran for Athens mayor during the last municipal elections.

Four city employees who were temporarily staffing the offices returned to their regular positions, while a legal notifice was served for the immediate vacation of the premises.

According to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency, the city is seeking advice on what to do with members of the city council who were elected on the Golden Dawn ticket.
