Former PM Davutoğlu met Gülen in US: Ex-AKP lawmaker
Mesut Hasan Benli - ANKARAA former lawmaker from Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has said former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu visited the U.S.-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen at his home in Pennsylvania with his family and stayed with him for more than four hours.
“He [Gülen] had pictures taken with all AKP lawmakers. They all visited him. Everybody has visited him in that house in the past four years,” he added.
İşbilen also denied claims that he was Gülen’s “successor,” and denied being a member of FETÖ.
“I have nothing to do with any of the cases, and I don’t know who carried out the coup,” he said.
Upon questioning, İşbilen said he did not consider FETÖ to be a “terrorist organization.”
Meanwhile, during the hearing he was also particularly asked about his phone conversations with former Culture Minister Ertuğrul Günay.
