ATC has used the word "asylum" several times.

Aircraft approaching fuel starvation with one engine already out.

Swiss government refusing to allow the aircraft to land.

And I was about to go to bed.  This will be over one way or the other very soon.

Either they'll land, or they'll crash when fuel runs out.  If the latter happens, it will be the second time it has happened to Ethiopian Airlines.

They just need to get the plane on the ground, and then terminate the little sh*t who is behind it.

Deal with him on the ground, in the air he has all the power.

It was the co-pilot who did the hijack. He has been arrested.

Quote
The co-pilot of a hijacked plane has been arrested in Switzerland after taking control of the aircraft while the pilot went to the toilet.

Flight ET702 was "forced to proceed" to Geneva international airport after a mayday plea was issued.

The co-pilot then surrendered to police asking for asylum in Switzerland,
