Second Turkish serviceman granted asylum

A Greek Asylum Committee has reportedly granted asylum to a second Turkish serviceman, among the eight, that fled Turkey following the July coup attempt in 2016.

A few months ago, the asylum committee had granted asylum to another one of the eight soldiers.

But the committee’s decision was appealed and was discussed last Friday by the Council of State, the country's highest administrative court.

A decision is expected soon.
