Greece seeks to cancel Turkish pilot’s asylum

Sofian Khan

The Greek government says it has asked the nation’s judicial experts to cross out a lawful choice giving haven to a Turkish helicopter pilot. He was one of eight servicemen who fled to Greece a year ago after a fizzled upset endeavor in Turkey. Turkey has communicated its wrath at the asylum choice, saying it would influence ties between the two nations. The remote service in Ankara said Greece had by and by demonstrated that it ensures and grasps upset plotters. A Greek asylum board of trustees decided that there was no confirmation that the co-pilot who flew seven individual servicemen to Greece the day after the fizzled upset was associated with the plot. It said he couldn’t expect a reasonable trial in Turkey.In January the Greek supreme court turned down a Turkish extradition request for the eight servicemen, who say they were not involved in the attempted coup. The Greek government has said that it does not support coup plotters and that its judiciary is independent.Nearly 250 people died and 2,196 were wounded fighting the coup attempt by an army faction on 15 July last year.The government has since led a crackdown on alleged coup supporters, with the dismissal of more than 150,000 state employees and the arrest of some 50,000 people. Mr Erdogan’s opponents say the purges amount to an attempt to stifle political dissent.
