FETO, Gulen behind Turkey coup bid: Parliament inquiry

World Bulletin / News Desk

The Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) is behind the July 15 defeated coup that left 250 people dead and around 2,200 injured, according to a parliamentary committee's draft report released on Friday.  

Resat Petek, who chaired the parliamentary inquiry committee into the attempt, said the draft report "clearly reveals" that FETO was behind the coup bid.

After evaluating all evidence and documents, the committee has come to the conclusion that FETO/PDY decided and acted in the coup bid, with the so-called leadership of Fetullah Gulen, Petek said.

Fetullah Gulen has “committed forgery numerous times, but he never went through an investigation. He attained his green [Turkish] passport with fake documents he collected," he said, adding that: "Documents and evidences collected by our commission confirm that."

The draft report will be submitted to the parliamentary speaker in 15 days for approval.
