A Thessaloniki appeals council on Wednesday decided to extradite a 42-year-old Turkish woman wanted by German authorities on a European arrest warrant for "participation in extremist activities".
The woman was arrested in early July during a Greek counter-terrorism police operation in Thessaloniki.
According to the European arrest warrant, she is accused of participation in the DHKP-C, which has been designated a "terrorist" organisation by Turkey.
The woman is accused of collecting money over the past 8 years for the armed operations of the organisation.
Testifying before the appeals council, the woman denied the charges and claimed that she faces persecution in Turkey due to her trade union and social action, and expressed worry that her extradition to Germany will pave the way for her deportation to Turkey.
