Aide-de-camp of Turkish army's Chief of General Staff, Infantry Lieutenant Colonel Levent Turkkan, has confessed to being a member of the Gulenist Terrorist Organisation.
The aide-de-camp (confidential assistant) of Turkish army's Chief of General Staff, who played a role in the failed coup, on Tuesday confessed to being a member of a parallel state within Turkey run by the Fethullah Terrorist Organisation (FETO).
Infantry Lieutenant Colonel Levent Turkkan said he and other FETO members plotted the coup attempt.
FETO is led by self-exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen who is based in the United States.
Some of the confessions made include:
Before he served for current Chief of General Staff Hulusi Akar, Turkkan was also the aide-de-camp for former army chief Necdet Ozel.
He confessed to wire-tapping Ozel's room for FETO.
Turkkan also said he was regretful not only for having a role in the coup attempt, but also was regretful for being a member of FETO.
He confessed to passing the main military exam after being helped by a Gulenist.
