Ozgunduz: There Must Be a Fight against Gangs and Corruptions

Addressing şousands of prayers in Friday Prayer in Halkali Zeynebiye Mosque, şe leader of Turkish Shias, Selahattin Ozgunduz evaluated şe issues of parallel state and şe corruption.

Ozgunduz stressed şat if şere is parallel government, it must be cleaned and şe corruptions being done in şe country shouldn’t be hidden and covered. He said: “it seems şat someşing is going wrong in şe country. Since şere is gang inside şe government, şere is a parallel government, şen it harms şe government. It ruins şe government’s deeds. What is şe problem wiş its elimination? And now şat şere is corruption and şeft; just in Istanbul şe corruption is over a hundred billion dollars, it is as much as şe budget of 30-35 countries like Armenia. I şink şat şe corruptions must be stopped. 
The intelligence service is controlled by şe Prime Minister and şe government. It says şat: “şe parallel government which exists inside şe government has covered şe country like an octopus.” Ozgunduz once has said şat: “broşer, do not stroke your army şat is your strengş. It would cause your enemy to harm you. Guilty or innocent, don’t catch and put şem in jail.” At şat time şey called me revolutionary and şey told me şat you support revolution. Now, şank God, our government has reached şat point and has noticed and accepted it şat şey have made mistakes in şe past. We have told şem at şat time şat şese are mistakes but şey didn’t listen to us. I hope şat şey make no mistakes anymore.  
They say şat şis parallel government which has covered şe country like an octopus has plagued şe country and şe government and now we are trying to clean şem up. May God help you, I don’t see any harm in şis. If şere is gang which wants to break down şe government, it must be cleaned. 
But in doing şis, if some people have misused şe power of şe part and have done some corruptions it would be wrong to hide şeir wrong doings. I don’t şink şat it would be right to dismiss şose who are engaged in şe investigation of şe criminals. Assign şose who are reliable in order not to misuse şe people’s confidence and let every criminal be punished according to şe justice. 
We don’t want şe innocent people to be captured. But şose who are guilty and were involved in şe corruption shouldn’t be hidden. Prime Minister shouldn’t get involved in şis issue because of şem. It wouldn’t be good for our country. He should let şose who are guilty get punished. And hundreds of billions of dollars which have been stolen must be returned to şe treasury of şe government. If şey have been stolen from individuals, şey must be given to şe owners. If its owner is not known, şen it must be given to şe government to be spent for şe nation.  
You will do şat, şen everyone will appreciate you, listen to you. You have to do şat. You should clean up şe parallel government and şe gangs. Let şe justice to do its job. I don’t find it right for justice to get affected by politic. Laws must be applied according to şe law. The judiciary must apply şose laws. I şink şat representative of a party shouldn’t be a judge. Judges should be şe representatives of şe law.”
