Mr. Adnan Oktar has mentioned the graft claims a number of times during his conversations and made a plead to government officials that they must make a statement that if there is a guilty party, this will not be covered up and the guilty parties will be dealt with.
Mr. Erdogan has made several statements about the graft claims that these cannot - and will not - be covered up.

ADNAN OKTAR: How could you cover it up? How is it possible? I’m looking at the High Penalty Courts and there are three judges and a prosecutor; when necessary sometimes the verdict goes to a higher court. There is the Supreme Court and there is evidence in the case file. Sometimes the evidence could be wrong and sometimes it is correct. But this requires some patience. There is no need to be so impatient. Justice moves slowly but steadily.
If there is no explanation, this is actually harmful propaganda. Also when there is a Muslim community involved, it seems a little strange but it needs to be dealt with as soon as possible.

ADNAN OKTAR: No one is defending graft or corruption. So does the PM say, “Yes I am defending graft?” On the contrary, he is strongly moving against it. This is his number one priority ever since he came to power; stopping corruption and graft. There could be people from his family, relatives and friends who have committed crimes and there could be in future. It would be wrong the blame the government for this.

ADNAN OKTAR: If there is a legal perversion, or if three or five people have committed a crime, it seems that the government will do what ever is necessary. No one will, or could, cover it up. How could it be? It’s impossible. Everything is out in the open. There is no problem.
