Turkish servicemen's extradition urged to be rejected by Greek




(MENAFN) A Greek prosecutor has called on a court to dismiss a third Turkish request for the extradition of eight Turkish servicemen who fled to Greece in July 2016 after a failed military coup.

An Athens appeals court is hearing the case of the servicemen, which has increased tension between regional neighbors Greece and Turkey.

Prosecutor Evgenia Kyvelou argued that Greece's Supreme Court has already ruled -examining the first extradition bid- that the men wouldn't get a fair trial in Turkey and would face inhumane treatment there.

She said new Turkish charges that the men belonged to an armed terrorist group and were linked to attempted murders have no solid grounding.

The court is expected to issue its ruling later Friday. Both earlier extradition requests have been rejected.
