Greek court rules against extradition of three Turkish soldiers

TAGS: Justice, Diplomacy

A Greek court ruled on Tuesday against the extradition of three of eight Turkish soldiers who fled to Greece last July following a failed coup attempt against the Ankara government.

Greece's top court blocked the extradition of all eight in January, angering Turkey which then issued a second extradition request.

Turkey alleges the men were involved in efforts to overthrow President Tayyip Erdogan and has demanded they be sent back. [Reuters]
