Official Reason for Arrest or Detention
Yasingjan’s mother lost contact with her son after the summer of 2016. They met in Urumqi city when she went back to visit the rest of the family living in Xinjiang. She now lives in Turkey.
Yasingjan’s mother believes that her son went missing at the end of 2016. In September 2019 she was told by an acquaintance who has connections in her hometown that Yasingjan was in prison after being sentenced to 12 years imprisonment.
The Chinese authorities have shared no details or official documentation with Yasingjan’s mother. She has lost contact with her family in China, and therefore cannot confirm whether the rest of the family has received any official information either.
She believes that Yasingjan was imprisoned for having travelled to Turkey during spring 2016.
Yasingjan is married and has two children. After high school, he opened his own clothing business. He was also working part-time as driver.
Unfortunately, Yasingjan’s brother Rozi Abdulgani is also believed to be in prison serving a 14-year sentence.
