Man Wanted as a Member of ISIS Arrested in Greek City of Tripolis

November 5, 2020

TRIPOLIS, Greece — A 27-year-old man from Tajikistan facing charges as a member of ISIS has been arrested in the Greek city of Tripolis in the Peloponnese, on the basis of an Interpol red notice issued in his own country. The arrest was carried out on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old is a father of four and entered Greece as an illegal migrant in 2017, police sources said. He was given asylum and had been living in an apartment rented by a non-governmental organisation in Tripolis.

He claims to be the brother-in-law of Tajikistan's opposition leader and sought asylum in Greece as a victim of persecution and torture in his own country. Police have contacted authorities in Tajikistan to seek clarifications concerning his case.


KALAMATA, Greece (AP) — A Greek judge dismissed a case Tuesday against nine Egyptian men accused of causing a shipwreck that killed hundreds of migrants last year and sent shockwaves through the European Union’s border protection and asylum operations, after a prosecutor told the court Greece lacked jurisdiction.
