The door of the asylum committee pass Wednesday morning the two of the eight Turkish soldiers who had landed by helicopter in Alexandroupolis, after the failed coup that took place in Turkey and resulted in losing their lives hundreds of people and get injured more than 2000.

The Turks, who are accused of treason by the Turkish government, after the imposition of two months’ imprisonment suspended for three years from the Alexandroupolis Court, were transferred to Athens, where they are under administrative detention at the police station of Acharnes.

The Turkish soldiers will give an interview before the Asylum Commission as required by law and will justify their request for asylum. According to information of IBNA, applicants will focus on charges against members of the army for the failed coup and take for granted their persecution by the Turkish government for their involuntary participation, as they emphasize in every possible way, to the failed coup of July 15 as bearers.

The case of the 8, which has caused diplomatic fever in Greece and Turkey, with announcements by both sides, although it will be examined in the form of urgent, will be discussed for quite a long time since asylum seekers will exhaust every legal form that the law allows them to avoid being issued to Turkey, where they are accused of involvement in the failed coup of July 15.

The fear for the outcome of the case and transfer of news by their relatives for the deaths of their fellow soldiers have shaken them and they are in a bad psychological state, although their detention conditions are very good.
