Greek court rejects Turkey’s extradition request for Mehmet Dogan

A Greek court has rejected Turkey’s extradition request for Mehmet Dogan, one of the nine Turkish people it wants on suspicion of being linked to the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front, which the EU has identified as a terrorist organisation. Turkey has charged them all with terrorism-related offences, but Mr Dogan successfully argued that the charges against him were politically motivated.

The Court is due to hear the second case relating to the 9 wanted people this week.
