No: 34, 2 February 2018, Press Release Regarding The Refusal Of Our Extradition Request For Memet Doğan By The Appeals Court Of Athens

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 02.02.2018

It is deeply disappointing that our extradition request for Memet Doğan, a member of DHKP/C terrorist organization who was captured in a police operation carried out in Athens, on November 28, 2017,was rejected by the Appeals Court of Athens.

This judgment, which is another new example of the Greek courts’ approach on protecting terrorist organizations, neither complies with the international obligations of Greece to combat terrorism, nor is it compatible with good neighborly relations.

In the future, we expect the Greek judiciary to take just and lawful decisions, free from political pressure.
