Rahmatulla, a businessman from Artux, Xinijang, was in Osh, Kyrgyzstan, when he received a phone call from a friend about his Turkish citizenship that was in the process of being approved. Rahmatulla disappeared soon after this phone call on 23 September 2021.
Rahmatulla’s family found out that Kyrgyz and Chinese police were involved in his disappearance. However, Chinese authorities have not provided any information or communicated any official charges to the family. Rahmatulla’s friend, interviewed by Amnesty International and now based in Turkey, believes that he was first detained in an internment camp then transferred to a prison in Xinjiang. The suspected reason for his detention is his Uyghur ethnicity.
Rahmatulla suffers from epilepsy. He has a wife and four children, two children in Kyrgyzstan and two in Artux, Xinjiang.
He is a sportsman and loves football; he’s a Real Madrid fan.
