An act from the drama intended to influence the Supreme Court and the public.
Immediately prior to the announcement of the Supreme Court verdict regarding the trial of Adnan Oktar and the members of the BAV, another plan was set in motion. An extraordinarily talented individual by the name of Feridun Özgül was used as a propaganda tool against Adnan Oktar. Under the plan, a few days before the announcement of the verdict the highly talented Feridun Özgül was presented to the cameras and made to weep as he related baseless stories that were nothing less than slanderous. This plan was employed in order to put pressure on the public conscience and on the Supreme Court against Adnan Oktar and the BAV as it came to reach its decision. This television coverage was later used as a news report in daily newspapers. The fact is, however, that the whole affair was a ruse, part of this psychological warfare.
In the wake of this Feridun Özgül’s daughter, Ceylan Özgül Özbudak, issued a statement admitting that everything her father had said was untrue. She described how “she had left her family of her own volition, how she lived very happily with her husband but was kidnapped at gunpoint” by her father. She also said that her father “had spoken before the cameras under the direction of certain circles with the aim of influencing the Supreme Court verdict, and that the affair had been distorted in an effort to impugn Adnan Oktar and the BAV.”
