I wonder what happened to him after his arrest?

Erdal Kinaci, more than a friend, a beloved companion, a sibling to us, has served to his country and people as a medical doctor for many years who proudly represented his country also as a renowned photographer with numerous photographs rewarded in prestigious contests. Although he has just been arrested and his case hasn't been resolved yet, he has become the victim of the false accusations fabricated by the mass media that a man of his indubitable intellectual and artistic calibre definitely never deserves, leaving us in deep sorrow. As opposed to what was claimed by the mass media, Erdal Kinaci has been a honorable photographer for 25 years, crowned with over 40 national prizes for his photographs. Moreover, the National Geographic Magazine awarded Kinaci the first prize in "human" category in a worldwide photography contest in 2006. The following year, Kinaci won the first prize in " photo-reportage" category in a national contest organized by the National Geographic Magazine. His photography has been well appreciated by both at home and abroad. His photographs have been published in various magazines and exhibited in personal and mixed exhibitions. With the purpose of raising consciousness and setting the agenda for the disabled people, Erdal Kinaci joined the efforts of Well-Abled Life Association (Engelsiz Yaşam Derneği) and created a special project, " Photography for a Well-Abled Life", which was exhibited in Ankara, Izmir and Aydin in 2007 and displayed in different cities of Turkey. His project unquestionably worked his will and inspired many other projects and charity organizations to initiate subsequent events for achieving a well-abled life for everyone. A considerable amount of aid in kind from charity organizations and NGO's from Turkey and abroad could be delivered to the disabled people in need with whom Erdal Kinaci has always felt the privilege of sharing the same hometown. One of his last projects, Gir Gec Pansiyonlar (Admission Free Pensions) aimed to draw attention to the hardships of prostitutes working in brothels. We, his photographer friends and companions, trust the judicial system and laws of the Turkish Republic. We have a deep belief in the fairness of the decree of court. Hence, we invite the Turkish media to handle the issue in a more sensitive manner until the legal procedures have been completed.
