A German citizen was arrested on the island of Kos early Friday morning. An international arrest warrant has been issued against a 30-year-old man for his involvement in a far-right extremist organization.
German police went to Greece to arrest him, and the operation was carried out in conjunction with Greek officers. According to media reports, the man is a member of a far-right extremist organization in Germany, and is also accused of drug and arms trafficking, and money laundering.
Cooperation between the two countries began when information was received that a particular person was temporarily staying in a hotel on the island of Kos. According to Greek media, at the same time, an operation was carried out in the suburbs of Berlin, during which the authorities arrested several people. The four detainees are reported to be members of the same organization. A 30-year-old man resisted arrest on Kos and is also charged with this crime. The judicial authorities of Greece and Germany must decide on the extradition of the man.
Authorities have not yet released any details about the identity of those arrested and what organizations they belonged to, other than as “far-right extremists.”
