Journalists from Daily Sabah and its sister newspaper Sabah joined a British lawmaker at a panel on the July 15 coup attempt at Parliament in London on Tuesday. The panel entitled "July 15 Coup Attempt in Turkey: Reality and Facts" focused on public resistance on the night of the coup and the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) blamed for the foiled putsch.
Daily Sabah op-ed editor and columnist Meryem İlayda Atlas said at the panel that the Turkish nation exhibited its loyalty to democracy on that tragic night and that July 15 was a critical phase in Turkey's history, which has seen three coups and quasi-coups in 93 years. Burhanettin Duran, a Daily Sabah columnist, said Turkish citizens showed honorable resistance against the coup and FETÖ certainly did not expect such a strong defense of democracy and country.
David Burrowes, the Conservative deputy who hosted the panel discussion, said, "I have not known a time when there was such a lack of information about what is happening in Turkey and prejudice in relation to Turkey," noting that the panel aimed to redress that situation.
Sabah newspaper columnist and Financial Editor Şeref Oğuz stressed the strength of the Turkish economy after the coup attempt. Oğuz said that on the day of July 15 the Turkish people not only protected the Turkish democracy but also its economy. "A week after the coup attempt, $9 billion worth of foreign currency in Turkey had been changed into Turkish lira," he stated. He said Turkish banks did not change their work schedules or procedures when the state of emergency was announced. "The Turkish people continued their daily routines after the coup attempt and did not panic," he stated.
