Salih Mirzabeyoğlu was sentenced to death on the February 28 process and after that he was given a heavy life sentence; he has been in prison for 16 years, and Mr. Adnan Oktar commented that a bill for a new trial could be requested from the Ministry of Justice.
Thus, his lawyers made an appeal for a new trial.

(“As an answer to the audience member who said: ‘I think that Salih Mirzabeyoğlu who was put in jail in the February 28 Coup process, is being kept inside without any proof of an organization. A man who has 57 pieces of work of art is kept in a one-man cell. He wants the Islamic Union. He has even written a book called Islamic Nations.’)
ADNAN OKTAR: They can request a new trial from the Ministry of Justice. A retrial could be requested. If that decision was made in such a difficult situation, in the situation of the February 28 process, then our brother may well be right. Requesting a new trial is very reasonable, a retrial could be requested. And if he is kept in a one-man cell, then it is very weird, very sad. We should inform the Ministry of Justice about that. We should understand what the reason is behind this. This is a strange situation. The best thing to do is to request a new trial, so a retrial could be done because I don’t trust most of the practices of the February 28 process. Most of them were shady. There was an environment of terror. Tortures, deaths and murders remained unsolved.
