Today marks the sixth time a Greek court has denied Turkey’s request for the extradition of an alleged member of Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C). The alleged member, Mr Agarmis, was arrested in Athens last year with 8 other alleged members of the same group.

Despite the DHKP-C being listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S and the European Union, the Court of Appeal in Larissa explained that Mr Agarmis would not be extradited due to Turkey’s poor human rights record.
