Adnan Oktar: I Was Acquitted of All the Lawsuits Filed Against Me, My Criminal Record Is Clean
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated July 9th, 2016
ADNAN OKTAR: Do you have my criminal record?
KARTAL GÖKTAN: Yes, Mr. Oktar.
ADNAN OKTAR: Show it, please. What does it say? Read it from the start.
KARTAL GÖKTAN: Turkish Republic Ministry of Justice, General Directorate of Criminal Records and Statistics. It includes your identity information; Adnan Oktar, father's name, birth place, Ankara 1956. Above-identified person has no current criminal records. Above-identified person has no records in the criminal records archive.
ADNAN OKTAR: What does this mean? I do not even have a traffic ticket, no criminal records to my name.
OKTAR BABUNA: Many lawsuits were filed against you but you were acquitted of all of them.
ADNAN OKTAR: I was acquitted of every one of them. Let's send this criminal record to the entire press. They keep on bringing up the same unfounded allegations that I was convicted of using cocaine etc; I was convicted of nothing, and was acquitted of all the charges against me. They think they are good at running schemes, but they are not.
BEYZA BAYRATKAR: They tired many ploys
ADNAN OKTAR: Indeed, they strove with all their strength. Therefore, we should send my criminal record statement to both the national and international press. And if this is not enough to put sense into them, then I have nothing more to say. This would mean that there is another problem. They wheel out the same accusations that I was convicted of using cocaine, or mob action; I was not convicted of anything. I was proven innocent and acquitted of all the accusations. They should just give up. None of their ploys can bring me down, insha'Allah. We should publish this both on Twitter and Facebook. If these people decide to ignore and bring up these false accusations again, you can just show it. This is also true for the international journalists; they accuse me of "being convicted to 3 -5 years of jail time." There is no such thing. I know you want it very much to be true but it is not; I was acquitted of all the charges. Yes, we should publish my criminal record everywhere. Send this to the entire press, especially to the foreign press. Some of them still insist that I served jail time. I am telling you; that is not true, I was acquitted of all the charges. Even though you wish this to be true, I was convicted of nothing. They really want that I was convicted of something. I was not convicted of anything, of any crimes whatsoever. There are no cases on trial about me, yet they still bring up the same questions, which I cannot understand why.
OKTAR BABUNA: You do not even have a traffic ticket recorded in your name.
ADNAN OKTAR: Of course.
