DHKP-C suspect ‘planned hits in Turkey, not Greece'

One of four Turkish Kurds remanded in custody last week as suspected members of the extreme-leftist terrorist organization Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) has admitted that a large weapons cache found in an apartment in Gyzi was acquired in Greece but said the group had planned to hit targets in Turkey, not Greece.

According to a statement by his defense lawyers on Tuesday, the 41-year-old suspect told a Greek investigating magistrate that he is Ismail Akkol, who is being sought by Interpol for the murder in 1996 of a Turkish industrialist. The suspect had fake IDs in other names.

Another of the four suspects, 52-year-old Huseyin Fevzi Tekin, who is believed to be the leader of DHKP-C, faced a Thessaloniki magistrate on Tuesday in connection with an explosion at an apartment in the port city’s Triandria district in October 2011 in which a 35-year-old Kurdish man was killed.
