An MP from the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party repeatedly shouted "Heil Hitler!" in the Greek parliament after barred for insulting a fellow lawmaker.

Panayiotis Iliopoulos was expelled for "cursing" about major opposition leader Alexis Tsipras, of the Coalition of the Radical Left (Syriza). He allegedly called fellow MPS "goats" and "filthy people".

Ioannis Dragasakis, another Syriza member who was sitting as parliament's speaker in place of Evangelos Meimarakis, told the Golden Dawn member to "go away".

But Iliopoulos continued with his broadside of insults, calling other MPs "scoundrels", according to Greek Reporter. When Dragasakis called the security to remove him, the Golden Dawn MP started shouting "Heil Hitler!" for three times, before leaving the room.

Under the Greek law, MPs are not allowed to engage in personal attacks against each other.

A left-leaning website showed pictures of Iliopoulos wielding a neo-Nazi tattoo in his arms saying "Seig Heil" (welcome victory), a Nazi slogan adopted in the Germany of the early 30s.

The greeting has been declared illegal in Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Austria.
