In a complaint that the traces of two Turkish officers who had applied for asylum in Greece and were being held by the Greek authorities, their lawyer Stavroula Tomara lodged a complaint, which even hints about an exchange with the two Greek soldiers.
According to the Times, the military who are accused of involvement in the failed coup of July 15, 2016 against the Turkish president, are ignored from August 20, as their lawyer says.
The two officers of the Turkish Special Forces, Halit Cetin and Fatih Arik, flew to Greece from their unit after their failed coup. The men, described by the Turkish government as "no public enemies", have requested political asylum in Greece and have been jailed for 18 months for illegal entry into the country.
According to Mrs. Tomaras, however, the men disappeared on August 20, the day their detention order expired and possibly returned to Turkey by a ban on detainees.
As the London Times writes, their lawyer told them on a Greek channel: "I went to catch them and they were gone." "I really doubt whether the two commandos are in Greece, whether they have been transferred to a third country or sent back to Turkey – no one has the power to transfer my clients to a secret service. . "
Ms Tomaras suspects that the two commandments have been returned to Turkey by the Greek authorities in exchange for the release of the two Greek officers Mirtodis and Kuklatzis on 15 August.
Confusion, however, seems to exist for the case of the two Turks, since their case is different from that of the eight known officers.
The two sergeants of Su Alti Taarruz or SAT based themselves on the naval base of Fokea near Smyrna. (as members of the group who went to Erdogan's hotel in the night of the coup to kill or arrest him).
For their part, the lawyers of the eight Turkish officers, who fled to Greece with the request for political asylum, say none of them has disappeared, deny the relevant publication of the British newspaper The Times.
Speaking with SKAI, the lawyers of the eight also clarified that the lawyer Stavroula Tomaras, to which the British newspaper refers as the subject, no longer defends one of the eight Turks.
