German woman accused of guerrilla links bailed

Faye Marie Meyer, a German woman accused of being a member of the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire urban guerrilla group, was released from custody on Thursday after a magistrate decided that there is a lack of evidence linking her to the organization.

Prosecutor Dimitris Zimianatis had advised the judge earlier this week that the 27-year-old does not seem to be linked to any terrorist activity and there was no reason to keep in custody.

The magistrate has bailed Meyer and asked her to appear at her local police precinct regularly.

She was arrested in December after allegedly being spotted with two of the nine suspected members of the group, which is responsible for a series of bloodless bombings. The nine suspects are currently standing trial. Another four alleged members of the organization are being tried in absentia.

Meyer has threatened legal action against the police and the media after officers let it be known that she was the daughter of German woman suspected to be a former terrorist, an accusation that proved to be false.
