No: 145, 24 May 2018, Press Release Regarding The Decision Of The Greek Council Of State On The Admission Of Putschist Süleyman Özkaynakçı’s Asylum Request

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 24.05.2018

The Greek Council of State, in defiance of the rules of international law, granted asylum to putschist Süleyman Özkaynakçı.

It has been thereby reaffirmed by the international community that Greece is a country, which protects and shelters the putschists. We strongly condemn this decision that deeply offends the conscience of the Turkish nation.

We hope that the Greek judiciary will refrain from repeating the same mistakes by taking similar biased decisions in the future.
