Confessor Nurettin Veren
Nurettin Veren knew Fethullah Gülen since his sermons in Kestanepazarı Mosque (Izmir) in 1988. He was one of 12 people that founded the Akyazılı Foundation. According to his own account he was the right arm of Fethullah Gülen for 30 years.
When Veren criticized Gülen during a talk Gülen had attacked him with a rabble and asked others to kill him, although he was in the United States. Gülen accused Veren of attempting to kill him and take his place. After return to Turkey some people intervened and Nurettin Veren was again made the general coordinator of the daily Time (Zaman).
The lawyers of Fethullah Gülen sent statements to all organs that published the “confessions” of Nurettin Veren maintaining that his remarks were lies and slander. (2)
