Erdoğan knew of coup attempt beforehand, CHP's Head

Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu pointed out,  on Thursday, that  Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan knew about a July 15 coup attempt before it started, Turkish Minute reported.


The official raised the question: why Erdoğan had prepared three different planes in three different cities for an escape if he was not aware of the coup attempt in advance, Cumhuriyet reported.

“Mr. President and Chairman of the Justice and Development Party [Recep Tayyip Erdoğan] said we prepared three different planes in three different cities while he was talking about the night of the coup. That means you knew about it before it started,” said Kılıçdaroğlu, speaking to Habertürk TV from Hendek, a stop on the March of Justice he launched on June 15 in Ankara.

Reiterating that July 15 was a “controlled coup attempt,” the CHP leader said, “A coup is controlled coup when it is known beforehand, not prevented and its results made use of.”

“July 15 must be investigated, but the government instead preferred to cover it up. The two persons [Chief of General Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar and National Intelligence Organization (MİT) Undersecretary Hakan Fidan] who knew the most about the coup did not come and testify to Parliament,” added Kılıçdaroğlu.

“I know many dark points in this coup attempt.”
