For the fourth time in the row, the lawyers of the two Greek military officers held since March 2 in maximum-security prisons in Edirne filed a request for their release and the request was rejected. The request was filed on Tuesday, under the right given by Turkish law to review the matter every month.

The judge that reviewed the request ruled that the military officers should remain in custody, on the reasoning that nothing in the previous situation has changed, that the military officers might escape if they are released, and that their release with restrictive measures will not be sufficient. The text of the ruling also mentions that due to the examination of the digital material, it is possible that the offence will change, taking into account that the two military officers committed the offence on duty.
