Greece has granted asylum to the co-pilot of a helicopter used to fly 7 Turkish military officers to Greece last year following the failed 15 July coup. Turkey has long called for the co-pilot and the 7 officers to be extradited, a request that was blocked by Greece’s Supreme Court in January 2016 over fears that they would not receive a fair trial in Turkey. A decision on whether to grant the remaining 7 asylum is expected in the next few weeks.
