Orhan Inandi writes letter to Kyrgyzstanis from Ankara

Director of Sapat international educational institution, who is under arrest in Ankara, sent a letter addressed to relatives and citizens of Kyrgyzstan. His lawyer Taalaigul Toktakunova published the text on her Facebook page.

Orhan Inandi wrote his message, dedicated, as he noted, to his homeland, in the form of a poem. He addresses his students, graduates, their parents and friends, as well as the Kyrgyz people and country, and asks everyone to wait for him and not to give up hope.

Orhan Inandi went missing on May 31, 2021. The wife of the president of Sapat international educational institution Reihan Inandi appealed to the president Sadyr Japarov four times with a request to help in search for her husband.

On July 5, 2021, the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on the air of the state TV channel TRT Haber that Orhan Inandi, one of the so-called top leaders of FETO, had been captured and taken to Turkey.

On July 6, the President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov said in an interview that the government would demand Inandi’s prompt return to Kyrgyzstan.

The Foreign Affairs Ministry of Kyrgyzstan submitted a diplomatic note to the Turkish Ambassador, Ahmet Sadik Dogan, asking Turkey to return Inandi to Kyrgyzstan. The Main Internal Affairs Department of Bishkek reported that Orhan Inandi, director of Sapat, has dual citizenship.

By the decision of the Ankara court, Orhan Inandi was taken into custody until February 3. In court, he told that he was tortured at the police station. The Prosecutor General’s Office asked to sentence the kidnapped director of Sapat Orhan Inandi to 22 years and six months in prison.
