Greek court blocks extradition of Turkey coup suspects
Greece's Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the extradition of eight Turkish military officers sought by Ankara over July's failed cou, a justice source said, Al Jazeera reports.
In addition, the court ordered that the officers - two commanders, four captains and two sergeants - be released from police custody.
The judges' ruling conforms with the arguments of prosecutors who last week said the officers would not receive a fair trial in Turkey.
The eight had landed a helicopter in the northern Greek city of Alexandroupolis in July, a day after the botched coup.
