Golden Dawn leader Nikos Mihaloliakos due in court

The leader of Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party is expected to appear in court on Wednesday,

Four MPs from Nikos Mihaloliakos' party appeared in court in Athens on Tuesday to face charges of criminal activity amid a clampdown on the party.

Mihaloliakos says he leads a proudly nationalist party, but the government insists he is the head of a criminal organisation.

Emily Thomas reports.
