Video Records Turkish Soldiers Fleeing to Greece


Turkish authorities have made public a video apparently showing three Turkish soldiers minutes before they boarded helicopters to flee to Greece after the failed coup attempt in 2016.
In the footage from a security camera some of the soldiers appear to be holding guns as they walk down a staircase towards the helicopter pad.
Immediately afterwards members of the Turkish security forces loyal to the government are seen storming the building in pursuit.
Turkish media report that experts have identified the soldiers who have since claimed political asylum in Greece.
Altogether eight former members of the Turkish armed forces have requested asylum in Greece.
Greek courts have turned down Turkish requests for their extradition.
A new hearing on their case is scheduled for Friday in Athens as Turkey has apparently submitted new evidence for their involvement on the 2016 coup.
