The Turkish suspects are linked to the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C). The group was founded in 1978, the same year that the Kurds began their insurgency against Turkey in the country’s southeast. The DHKP-C is classified as a terrorist organization not only by Turkey but by the EU and the US.

Miami Herald:

A Greek investigating judge on Monday ordered nine suspected left-wing militants from Turkey to remain in custody pending trial on terrorism-related charges.

They were arrested last week in raids before a visit by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan later this week. The eight men and one woman have been charged with terrorism-related offenses, forgery, arms and explosives possession and resisting arrest.

The suspects were arrested on suspicion of links with the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front, which is deemed a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and European Union.
