Investigations into the affairs of Adil Öksüz, a theology lecturer by profession, shows the involvement of the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) in the foiled July 15 coup attempt, though it has tried to distance itself from the allegations. Öksüz, who has been at large since his release after the putsch attempt in a controversial court ruling, is the alleged mastermind of the coup, carried out by a junta loyal to FETÖ and resulting in the deaths of 246 people opposing it. Criminal investigators revealed he frequently traveled to the United States where the terrorist group's leader Fetullah Gülen resides in the company of military officers involved in the coup attempt.
Adil Öksüz, seen in photos taken after his detention, was spotted at an Istanbul airport arriving from the U.S. two days before the coup, accompanied by Kemal Batmaz, who plotted the putsch attempt.
