During the ongoing BAV (Science Research Foundation) case Adnan Oktar was forbidden to leave Turkey. However, there is no need for such a ban, since Adnan Oktar has no need to leave the country. Despite having been the target of a conspiracy throughout his years of intellectual struggle, despite have faced charges carrying a sentence of 25 years in prison, despite having been detained for 10 months in Ward 14A containing the mental hospital’s sickest inmates, and despite being the victim of a cocaine plot, he never made plans or even thought for a single day about leaving the country. Indeed, HE HAS NEVER EVEN APPLIED FOR A PASSPORT. Indeed, it has today been accepted that the claims made by Ebru Şimşek were false, and that the defendants in the BAV (Science Research Foundation) case, including Adnan Oktar, WERE ACQUITTED of the charges of gang membership. There is therefore no risk of a lengthy prison sentence or conviction that could lead to suspicions he might flee overseas. Even if there were, Adnan Oktar is someone who regards such difficulties as a blessing. Yet the lawyer for the other side still applied for a prohibition on travel abroad on the basis of a previous Supreme Court judgment. And a ban was duly imposed.
However, since the decision by the Supreme Court 8th Criminal department has currently been overturned by another section of the Supreme Court, one would expect the prohibition in question to be lifted. Throughout this whole process those directing the psychological warfare campaign have analysed the subject in what they imagine to be the best way and had it carried in the press for days on end as if were a really enormous event. Many press organisations carried it with great delight and excitement. The prohibition on leaving the country is a decision taken regarding hundreds of people in a large number of courts. It has been imposed on many famous figures, including even Erdal Inonu. It is a perfectly run of the mill measure. Yet the phenomenon was depicted as a major event. There is little likelihood of the papers reporting the matter when the ban is lifted in the days ahead. Because psychological warfare requires that there be no such coverage.
