High court prosecutor recommends against extradition request by Ankara for 4 remaining Turk servicemen

A high court prosecutor on Friday recommended against the extradition of four remaining Turkish servicemen that have sought political asylum in Greece following an abortive coup in the neighboring country, following similar recommendations for another four officers and NCOs of the same group.

The three cases before the Supreme Court, which actually refer to the same incident and the group of eight Turkish servicemen, deal with an extradition request submitted by the official Turkish government.
