(AP) Three arrested lawmakers from Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party have been released from custody after testifying in a criminal investigation triggered by the slaying of a leftwing rapper.


Judicial authorities said Wednesday that a fourth lawmaker, Ioannis Lagos, was jailed ahead of the trial.


Golden Dawn's leadership was arrested at the weekend following an investigation into the last month's stabbing death of 34-year-old leftwing rapper Pavlos Fyssas.


Party leader Nikos Michaloliakos, who is also detained, is due to testify before an investigative magistrate later Wednesday.


Authorities also said they are continuing raids on the homes of police officers with suspected ties to criminal activities linked to Golden Dawn.
