Nearly two years in the dock over an anti-fascist rapper's murder have done little to blunt the swagger of Greek neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn. The ultranationalist party remains the fourth largest in Parliament, and the Greek authorities continue to grapple with how to confront the aggressive actions of many of its leading cadres.Thirteen Golden Dawn lawmakers – and another four ex-MPs – have been on trial since April 2015 accused of membership of a criminal organization over the fatal stabbing of rapper Pavlos Fyssas in a street clash in 2013 .First elected to Parliament in January 2012, Golden Dawn's lawmakers continue to occupy an ambiguous role in a country that for years denied it had a problem with racism.Another four defendants are either no longer MPs or have left the party.Golden Dawn recently dropped to 17 lawmakers and fourth place in Parliament behind the Socialists after one of its MPs defected over a local constituency row.
