Official Reason for Arrest or Detention
The last time Tajinisa’s son was able to talk to her was over an audio call at the end of 2016. In that call, she told him that he shouldn’t come back to China: “it’s really cold here now, you should come back when the weather gets warmer”. Tajinisa, aged 67, is believed to have been taken to an internment camp in Hotan in 2020. Given her age, her son says Tajinisa wouldn’t need vocational education and might have been detained because her two children live in Turkey. Her son appealed to the Chinese Embassy with a petition in September 2021 and requested information about Tajinisa, but to avail.
Tajinisa likes to cook traditional Uyghur recipes for her family. She loves eating fruits and is fond of reading the Qu’ran. Tajinisa’s daughter, Muherrem Muhammed Tursun, is also in detention.
