Ankara requires a life sentence for a Greek pilot who allegedly shot down F-16 in 1996 g

Turkish prosecutors demanded a life sentence for the Greek pilot Thanos Grivas, who, according to law enforcement officers in 1996, shot down the F-16 of the Turkish Air Force over the Aegean Sea, reports RIA News message of the newspaper Hurriyet.

Ankara requires a life sentence for a Greek pilot who allegedly shot down F-16 in 1996 g

Earlier, Athenian media reported a letter sent by Ankara to the Greek Supreme Court (Areopagus), which proposed “initiating a lawsuit to punish Grivas and damages in the amount of one million euros”.

The Turkish Prosecutor’s Office claims that “October 8 X-NUMX of the F-1996 of the Turkish Air Force, which was making a training flight over the Aegean Sea south of Chios, was shot down by a Mirage 16 Greek plane, which killed Commander Nail Erdoогan, the second F 2000 Osman Chichekli managed to eject. "

“According to the radar and the records of the pilots' talks, it was established that the fighter caught fire in the air. In his testimony, Colonel Chichekli said that they were shot down by a rocket fired from one of the Greek planes in international airspace, ”the document says.

Grivas was accused in absentia of "premeditated murder, actions directed against the independence of the state and the destruction of the aircraft."

As the lawyer of the children of the deceased pilot noted, “the trial of the Greek pilot will take place in Turkey if Athens takes measures in accordance with the legal assistance agreement with Greece”.

The Greek side denies the fact of the destruction of the aircraft. In Athens, they claim that the Turkish pilot reported a loss of control and intention to leave the car. By the way, the surviving pilot “was rescued by the courts within the responsibility zone of Greece,” which once again confirms the violation by the Turkish fighter of the country's airspace.

      The phrase Lavrov describes the mental state of the Turkish establishment as accurately as possible.
      In general, the whole story with giveaways to the Sultan Erdogan begins to cause bewilderment. request
      I don’t even take meanness towards us. Pure European-Turkish relations. Erdogan as a moody, spoiled child. Brussels (I mean the political elite of Europe) indulges in every way these whims.
      Comedian insulted? crying Now we are him, a villain in court angry
      People in the Netherlands do not like to collect information on them? Yes, no question, collect, we don’t notice it request
      The Greeks unbelted, the intruder shot down? crying Atu of the Greeks !!! In the judgment of the pilot, there is nothing to stop the Turks from making several thousand air provocations on the border with Greece wassat
      Delirium wassat

        Maybe he de.bil. But Merkel crushed under him. I felt that there was a field for self-affirmation and rushing like a bull at the gate. And it can be stopped only by the PKK and mass unrest in Turkey on the basis of losses from terrorist attacks. It will not be surprising if he lays claim to Russia on all territories conquered since the time of Peter the Great.

    Turkey imagined itself to be a US branch in Europe and decided to extend its jurisdiction to other countries. Based on their logic, it is necessary to send a request for the arrest of Davutoglu, who publicly admitted that he ordered the destruction of Sushka. But it’s better to just send liquidators to him from the experience of Comrade Sudoplatov

      Turkey has more than a millionth army of bearded children. On the go-ahead of the Sultan, they will again begin to cross the EU border in small groups of 20-50 thousands, demanding there 600 euros per month for benefits, food and Germans / Italians / French in mini.

      Therefore, the EU will agree on everything.

    And again Erdogan ...! Probably a relative of the current "sultan" of all Turkey. And the Turks do not want to demand that the descendants of the Don Cossacks, who killed the Turkish garrison of Azov and arranged the Azov prison, be brought to justice ?! Judging by the genotype of my grandmothers, my ancestors more than once went to Turetchina for their wives, and more than one Turkish woman was dragged out of some harem. Let Erdogan roll out a lawsuit for me too.

    And after such an event, the Turks continue to regularly violate the airspace of Greece. This is either arrogance or a thirst for revenge. The Turks are well aware that there will be no court. But their arrogance has only to be surprised.
    ps: The surname of the pilot Erdogan is symbolic. And the co-pilot almost read "Celik". Here, probably the Sultan himself ordered "to raise the wave."

    The Greek side denies the fact of the destruction of the aircraft. In Athens, they say that the Turkish pilot reported losing control and the intention to leave the car.
    Even if it is true that he himself fell: the state border is inviolable! Moreover, the Turks constantly make group overflights of the Greek islands. This is their real struggle against the background of historical memory and the problems of Cyprus or the Air Force and Air Defense of both countries. Judging by the deployment of the Greek army in the "Turkish" direction, everything is serious there and strong armies of both countries are welcomed in Brussels. For me, the Turks are frank geopolitical rivals and enemies, but I am not flattering about the Orthodox Greeks either. They gave the go-ahead to build their own branches of the gas pipeline from Baku to Europe bypassing Russia. If not a direct military threat comes from them, then there is a threat from a loyal NATO member, in solidarity with it on all political issues.

      The Greeks have a difficult economic situation. They want to earn a little money on the transit of this gas. But it’s just "a little" that will be earned, since gas there is minuscule in comparison with our reserves. This is not a threat to us. If there is an opportunity to pass Russian gas through themselves, they will not miss this either.

    The Turks have not yet paid for the 300 summer monstrous atrocities of their own and their jackals of Crimean Tatars on Russian soil, and again commit crimes against the Russian people. We will not forget this and they will definitely get their megatons.

    It’s just that a plane collided with a seagull .. If you remember, the American general said that our planes should not fly so close with their ships, suddenly a seagull, and then we will say that they were shot down. Here, Greeks, use the hint! The Americans came up with it, which means that it has a place to be, the Turks will not dare to object. Otherwise, you have to declare the American general a fool.))
