On Thursday a Greek court once again ruled against the extradition of two of the eight Turkish soldiers who fled from Turkey to Greece following the failed coup attempt in July, 2016.
Previously the Greek courts have rejected the extradition requests made by the Turkish government for six of the eight soldiers.
The soldiers have said that they fear for their lives and that they will not be given fair treatment if returned to Turkey.
