Greece to Extradite Belgian Female Terror Suspect



Greece will extradite to Belgium a woman arrested over the weekend, under a Europol terrorism warrant, the Greek police said.

“The extradition procedure has been set in motion by order of an appeals prosecutor,” a police source said, without clarifying when the handover may take place.

On Saturday, the Greek coastguard announced that the 22-year-old woman had been arrested “over suspected links to terrorist activity.”

Authorities declined to identify the suspect’s nationality but Greek state agency AMNA reported that she is a Belgian of apparent Moroccan origin.

Greek police declined to say which particular incident the warrant was issued over. Belgian authorities also declined to give detail on the case, beyond noting that the suspect is not connected to last week’s attacks in Spain.

The woman had travelled by ferry from Italy to the Greek port of Igoumenitsa. She was arrested late Friday on the island of Corfu, after Italian authorities alerted their Greek counterparts.
