Turks arrived in Crete and seek asylum

Eight Turks sailed on a sailing ship to the Greek island of Crete and asked for political asylum, and a criminal case was opened against them for illegal border crossing.

This morning, at about 10 o’clock, a sailboat in the sea near Crete gave an SOS signal. Due to the strong wind, the sailboat’s mast was damaged. A rescue boat came to the rescue and towed him to the shore.

The passengers were Turkish citizens who asked the Greek authorities to grant them asylum. They are currently on a moored ship. Police and Coast Guard are investigating the incident. The competent authorities are expected to consider the request for political asylum.
