Then following the publication of this article, yesterday we were shaken with the news that Daily Cumhurriyet was going to publish the third part in a series of interviews by Hikmet Çetinkaya with Nurettin Veren. In the past, Veren was the right arm of Fethullah Gülen and was very knowledgeable on matters that concerned Gulen.
In the interview there were no insults or personal attacks. Çetinkaya asked questions, Veren gave answers. He very openly addressed some subjects.
But indirectly somebody was appealing to the courts in the name of Fethullah Gulen, to prevent the interview from being published. The irony behind the situation is that although Fethullah Gülen continues to live in the US, not Turkey, the interview was stopped from being published by the 5 th Üsküdar Law Court.
I am someone who always defends the judicial process, who works to protect society from fear of unclear practices. But in the past few days we have been witnesses to some events that are not positive at all. Nothing should stop the publication of articles that bring truth to light. I am worried. In some parts of the judgement some very strange things are happening. Judgements are coming under religious influence.
Who is going to complain about this, and to whom will they complain?
