Visiting brother in Turkey
Official Reason for Arrest or Detention
It was shortly before Halmemet was taken away for a “short training” in March 2017 that his brother saw him for the last time, over a video call. He looked unusually nervous and didn’t want to talk. Within the first month of “training”, he was able to come back home twice but then later never came back. Believed to have been sentenced to 10 years in prison, Halmemet is married, has a daughter who was around one year old and a son who was around five years old when he was detained. His brother went to the Chinese consulate in Istanbul in April 2020 and asked questions about his brother’s whereabouts and conditions, but they did not respond.
Halmemet was full of life. He loved walking, visiting relatives, and looking after his mother, who is now 74. He also liked watching comedy and spending time with his friends.
