His brother in Canada did not go back to China when he was asked to in 2017
Official Reason for Arrest or Detention
Miradil was taken away from his parents’ home in Kashgar in August 2017. His brother now in the Netherlands was unable to obtain any information about Miradil’s whereabouts until the Chinese embassy in the Netherlands responded to an inquiry by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs in January 2021, saying that Miradil had been convicted of criminal offences, that he pleaded guilty and that his trial had been fair. However, no official information about the trial or the crimes and evidence against Miradil have ever been published. His brother told Amnesty International that he believes Miradil was arrested because another brother in Canada did not go back to China when he was asked to.
Miradil is good at maths and computers. He enjoys playing football and spending time with family. He was reportedly healthy when he was taken away.
