Suspected Reasons for Arrest or Detention
Official Reason for Arrest or Detention
28 August 2017
On 28 August 2017, Alim, an office worker from Payzawat, was taken away from his home in Urumqi by the Chinese authorities. According to a close contact interviewed by Amnesty International and now resident in Turkey, Alim is in a military prison in Korla allegedly serving a 15-year sentence. His family can talk to him once or twice a month but apparently, they don’t have any verdict or any other official documents from the Chinese authorities about Alim’s status. The official reasons for the detention are unknown, but the person Amnesty spoke with believes that Alim has been detained because of his Uyghur ethnicity.
Alim’s wife had just given birth to their first child when Alim was taken away.
Alim likes computers and used to enjoy playing videogames.
