Labeled as terrorists 8 Turkish officers seek asylum in Greece, but were detained for 2 months
The arrested officers seek asylum in Greece in fear to come back home where they are labeled as “terrorist elements”
According to the laws of Greece, they face up to 3 years in prison for illegal border crossing.
It is reported that the officers apply for political asylum in Greece, and said that danger overhangs them at home. One of the officers stated that he is afraid after the news of mass arrests in Turkey.
The other said that he is proud to be the military and he would never have left his homeland, if not feel the danger.
This situation can lead to tension between the two countries - members of NATO, the report says. The fact that Turkey insists on the speedy issuance of rebels escaped her. Ambassador of Greece in the country expressed hope that the return of these "terrorist elements" will happen as soon as possible.
It was reported earlier that Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım is negotiating with the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras about their extradition.
