Abdukirem’s niece, who lives in Turkey, had to stop communicating with him and other relatives towards the end of 2016 because her mother had told her it would not be safe for her family to be in touch with her anymore. His niece heard from a friend that he had been taken to an internment camp possibly in Kumul city of eastern Xinjiang, even though he was a well-educated public servant with native-level Chinese. Many of Abdukirem’s family members have also been taken to internment camps. Abdukirem’s sister-in-law Zuhre Suphi, brother Mahmud Hamdullah, and brother-in-law [Rusul Ismail] (#case119) are also in detention.
