Turkish police detain producer of Erdogan film over Gulen links

15 July 2017

"It was a terrorist coup attempt perpetrated by the Fetullah Terrorist Organization", Fatih Ulusoy said, during a news conference held at his office in Addis Ababa to mark the first anniversary of the July 15, 2016 defeated coup attempt.

According to the Turkish government, the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) and its US -based leader Fetullah Gülen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 249 people martyred and almost 2,200 injured.

"Journalists commit crimes too and when they do the judiciary makes the necessary assessment", he said.

The crackdown has extended from Gulenists to other opponents of the government, including Kurdish activists, human rights groups and journalists.

"We are talking about a structure (going back) more than 40 years, hence it is not possible to cleanse it in one day". The film portrayed Erdogan in largely admiring terms as a child and as Istanbul mayor when he was jailed for reciting a religiously themed poem. It the complaint is pursued, it could be considered as an arrest warrant issued against Erdogan.

"You are speaking more than me".

In the aftermath, the government imposed a nationwide state of emergency and arrested tens of thousands of alleged Gulen supporters, known as Gulenists.
