Weapons of alleged Turkish terrorist 'clean,' forensic experts say

Forensic experts of the Greek Police on Thursday said that the weapons found in a counter-terrorism squad raid on an Athens apartment on Monday that led to the arrest of four Turkish nationals are "clean," meaning that there is no ballistic evidence to suggest that they have been used in any crimes in the past.

The suspects, all Turkish Kurds aged 49, 41, 33 and 25, were arrested on Monday, following the raid on an apartment in the neighborhood of Gyzi, near central Athens.

They are suspected of being members of the Turkish extreme-leftist terrorist organization Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) and are to face an Athens magistrate on Friday.

The raid turned up a Kalashnikov assault rifle, two submachine guns, three pistols, 6 kilos of gelatin dynamite, two hand grenades as well as maps of Athens, Alexandroupoli and Turkey. The search also turned up berets and literature bearing the DHKP-C logo.

On Wednesday, Turkish media reported that one of the four suspects, Huseyin Fevzi Tekin, is considered the leader of DHKP-C.

Another one of the suspects is wanted for the murder of a Turkish industrialist.
