"Mr. Gulen is alive. Those reports are incorrect," said a spokesperson for the Gulen-affiliated Alliance for Shared Values.
The Alliance for Shared Values has released a number of Gulen statements since the time of his reported death. For instance, on July 25, the foundation issued a statement from Gulen offering condolences to the victims of wildfires in Greece.
Last week, multiple Turkish media outlets reported that Gulen died about a month ago as the result of cancer and was buried in an unmarked grave.
Turkey accuses the Gulen movement of organizing the failed coup of July 2016. Following the unrest, over 50,000 military personnel, activists, officials, journalists, and legal and educational workers were arrested over suspected links to Gulen, who has been residing in the United States since 1999 and denies the allegations against him.
