  • Description

    Documents have been submitted to the Greek Supreme Court in Athens, which will help it make a decision on whether to extradite Rolf Pohle, a 34-year old urban guerrilla wanted by the West German authorities.

    SYNOPSIS: Pohle made brief appearance in court on Saturday (18 September), amid tight security precautions. He was re-arrested in Greece in July, after having been freed last year, in exchange for Kidnapped West Berlin politician Peter Lorenz. In August, The Athens High Court refused the West German government's extradition request and said Pohle's crimes were politically motivated. The Supreme Court has been asked to make final judgement and its decision is expected early next week. German, Greek and other European jurists have been called as defense witnesses for Pohle, who has two-and-a-half years of his six years, five months sentence in West Germany still to serve.
