Turkish officers fleeing coup go on trial in Greece

A Turkish officer who fled after the coup is escorted by Greek police officers into the courthouse of Alexandroupoli, on July 21, 2016, to face trial for illegal entryEight Turkish military officers who fled to Greece after last week’s failed coup went on trial Thursday for illegal entry in a case that threatens to strain ties between the NATO allies. The eight are being tried in the northern city of Alexandroupoli, where they arrived by military helicopter on Saturday after sending a distress signal to authorities. According to one of their lawyers, Ilia Marinaki, the soldiers — two commanders, four captains and two sergeants — fear for their safety and that of their families after the abortive bid to topple President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
