Official Reason for Arrest or Detention
Ehet, a long-time educator from Tengritagh Township in Kumul (Hami) Prefecture, was detained at the beginning of 2018, as confirmed by Radio Free Asia. It is unclear though whether Ehet is being held in an internment camp or in prison. The family member interviewed by Amnesty International left China many years ago for the USA and lost all connections with the family still in China but tried to find information about Ehet through other family members living abroad and friends still resident in Xinjiang. They were the ones first confirming that Ehet was taken away by domestic security police at the beginning of 2018.
The official reasons for the detention are unknown, but the person Amnesty International interviewed believes Ehet has been detained because he has family members abroad that work on issues concerning Uyghurs.
Ehet is a teacher and before being detained he was the director of the Tengritagh Township Teaching District in Kumul. He enjoys sports, gardening and housebuilding. He is described as sociable and very responsible towards his family. He is married and has two children.
