The country’s Supreme Court has rejected the extradition request for all eight Turkish servicemen who fled to Greece in a helicopter in the wake of a failed military coup in July.

Presiding judge Giorgos Sakkas, reading out the decision on Thursday, said the eight were unlikely to face a fair trial if returned to their home country.
