Greece's Parliament has been asked to lift the immunity from prosecution of three lawmakers from the extremist right-wing Golden Dawn party so they can face charges of participating in a criminal organization, as part of a crackdown on the party sparked by the fatal stabbing of a left-wing rap singer.
Boukouras appeared of his own accord at court offering to testify after hearing his name mentioned in news reports about the protected witnesses' testimony.
Three top Golden Dawn members, including party leader Nikos Michaloliakos, were remanded in jail last week pending trial.
