Leading member of Islamic State that was granted asylum status has been arrested by the Greek authorities
One of the leading members of ISIS that was granted asylum status in Greece was arrested a few hours ago by police in the Peloponnese after an international search.
The 27-year-old from Tajikistan was granted asylum in Greece a few years ago, but has now been arrested in the city of Tripoli.
The terrorist in 2016 went through Turkey to Syria where he joined, trained and participated in battles on behalf of the ISIS in wars in Syria and Iraq.
He has been described as one of the most active members of ISIS.
The case is now also being examined by a member of the Counter-Terrorism Service and the terrorist was taken to Nafplion’s prosecutor’s office, where he will be detained and deported.
