A family member of İbrahim Faruk Bayındır, a fugitive suspect accused of being involved in a sex tape scandal of several senior opposition party members, admitted to prosecutors that his brother was involved with the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ).
According to the indictment prepared by the Ankara Prosecutor's Office, Bayındır is implicated in the publication of footage illegally procured by FETÖ-linked police officers. The businessman's brother, identified as F. Bayındır, told authorities that his brother was a member of FETÖ and could be involved in the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) sex tape scandal.
The domain names of the websites that published the sex tapes of MHP members - "ulkucugazete.com," "ulkucugazete.net" and "ulkucugazete.org" - were purchased with Bayındır's credit card.
The businessman is also accused of depositing TL 609,215 ($170,950.15) in his account at Bank Asya, which was closed down in money laundering investigation against FETÖ, between December 2013 and December 2014, on the orders of Fetullah Gülen, the leader of FETÖ.
During the same period, money in his wife's account at the same bank increased by TL 1,161,009. Due to its direct links to FETÖ, many depositors had started to withdraw money from Bank Asya after FETÖ's judicial coup attempt in December 2013. In response, FETÖ had organized a campaign for its members to fill up the bank's coffers.
