EU Official Visits Greek Soldiers Held in Turkey
The European Union’s ambassador to Turkey, Christian Berger, paid a visit to the two Greek army officers held in the high-security prison in Edirne, Turkey, on Monday.
According to an Athens-Macedonian News Agency report, during the visit, which lasted more than two hours, the head of the EU delegation had a private meeting with second lieutenant Angelos Mitroudis and sergeant Dimitris Kouklatzis and expressed the support of the European Union.
The pair were arrested on March 2, after they accidentally crossed into Turkish territory.
A Turkish judge who ruled on Tuesday that the two Greek soldiers should not be released from pre-trial custody, has said that the minimum sentence for border violation is two years in prison.
