Justice will decide on ‘Turkey’s 8’ based on Greek law, says minister

Justice will decide on the fate of the eight Turkish army officers who have appealed to the Supreme Court against Turkey’s extradition request, Alternate Defence Minister Dimitris Vitsas said on Wednesday, talking to Real FM radio station.

“Justice will rule on the fate of the ‘eight’, based solely on Greek and international law,” the minister said. “If the Supreme Court decides not to extradite them, then this is where the whole procedure ends. Greek Justice has the ability and the strength to do what it must.”
