(relation unclear) Sattar Sawut was the former director of the Xinjiang Education Department (新疆教育厅厅长). On February 9, 2017, there was a formal announcement from the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection that the victim, among others, was being investigated for a “serious breach of (Party) discipline”. On May 31, 2017, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate relayed an announcement by the procuratorate in Xinjiang that the victim was now being prosecuted, with legal coercive measures taken, on suspicion of accepting bribes.<br /><br />In 2018, Radio Free Asia received reports of a political-education film, shown to cadres and others in Xinjiang, that featured Sawut and many other prominent figures (“The Plot Inside the Textbooks”). According to multiple sources who had seen the film, Sawut was said to have been sentenced to death with a 2-year reprieve, on what were essentially charges of separatism.<br /><br />On March 13, 2019, activist Ilshat Hassan announced that he had heard from a “reliable source” that Sawut had died in detention (this has not been confirmed, however). According to those who saw the political film he was featured in, the main accusation against him was that of separatism.<br /><br />Officially, his initial detention was on suspicion of “violating Party discipline”, with the subsequent prosecution on suspicion of “accepting bribes”. Presumably still in detention, if alive. The people that Radio Free Asia spoke to appear to have gotten their information from the political film featuring Sawut, as this was mandatory viewing for many government workers and others across the region.<br /><br />The announcements regarding his investigation and prosecution come from official government bodies.<br /><br />It is not clear how the “reliable sources” cited by Hassan obtained the information. His case has been covered in:<br /><br />https://www.rfa.org/english/news/uyghur/intellectuals-jailed-10102018172605.html<br />https://asialyst.com/fr/2018/10/19/chine-elite-ouighoure-decapitee-xinjiang/ <br />https://bitterwinter.org/ethnic-uyghur-officials-persecuted/<br />https://www.ft.com/content/48508182-d426-11e9-8367-807ebd53ab77<br /><br />His Baidu Baike: https://archive.vn/IvJan<br /><br />His Chinese Wikipedia: https://zh.wikipedia.org/zh-cn/沙塔尔·沙吾提<br /><br />Additional info (in Uyghur): http://uyghurvictims.org/index.php?title=Sattar_Sawut 55+ M Uyghur unclear (hard) Jan. 2017 – Mar. 2017 separatism breach of Party discipline separatism taking bribes critical government

Died in camp in November 2018.] died in the re-education camp three months ago (as of February 3, 2019) not stated Gulshen’s interview to The Believer (Testimony 3) (https://believermag.com/weather-reports-voices-from-xinjiang/):<br /><br />Mostly men are taken to the camps. What happens then? The authorities send loyal Chinese families from the coast to live with the women in the homes of the disappeared. A Han Chinese man is sent to Xinjiang and placed in the house where the detained person had lived. Or it could be a couple. Or a family with kids. But sometimes it’s just one man who is sent to live in a house full of women…<br /><br />They lecture their hosts about the Communist Party. They continue to live among the family even when the detained family member returns. Everyone I know who spent some time in the camp, who was released to their home in China—in every case I know about, they have Chinese families living with them, lecturing them. And the families will report on any misbehavior. If you so much as look at them in a disagreeable way, they might tell the authorities and have you taken away to the camp. My husband’s relatives have such people living with them. As a result, these days their phones are almost always switched off. They’re afraid. I try to reach them to find out about my husband, but they call only when the “visitors” are out of the house.<br /><br />I grew up speaking Uighur. My family is Uighur. My parents escaped to the Soviet Union in 1969 and settled in Kazakhstan. Back in China they were cattle herders, but in Kazakhstan they became cooks. Later, when I was young, we went to Uzbekistan looking for work. They opened a café there. I’m an Uzbek citizen, actually. I met Aishanjiang and we were married in Tashkent in 1997. He was visiting from China, doing some business there. He worked with textile factories, importing fabric from China into Central Asia. The border was easy at the time: you just crossed it. I came with my husband to Kazakhstan and we opened a shop here. We were just starting our business when he was arrested.<br /><br />He was going to visit some of our factories in Ürümqi. As soon as he entered China, his passport was taken from him. He was brought to Atush, his birthplace. And from there he wasn’t allowed to leave. At the time, we hadn’t heard anything about the camps. He went into China without any knowledge of them. Such cases of people being taken to camps are rare in Ürümqi, where he did business, so when they told him to come in for questions, he went.<br /><br />The day he was taken, he had some idea of what was happening. He called me to say he was going to be taken to a camp. I don’t know if I’m going to be back or not, he said. He couldn’t say any more. He couldn’t describe his situation. What are you going to do? I asked. Why are you being sent to a camp? To study, he said. But you’re old, I told him. You’re almost fifty. He said that one of his relatives—almost eighty years old—was already studying in the same camp. Age is irrelevant, he said. That was last October. Since then, he’s vanished. I heard he’s in prison now.<br /><br />And others—there are many others. My husband’s older brother died in the same camp where my husband was. He was almost sixty years old. The authorities said he had a precondition, an illness of some kind, but he was healthy when I knew him. And my husband’s sister’s son was sentenced to twenty years in prison for making hajj. My sister-in-law’s husband, the imam at Atush, was sentenced to fourteen years. I’ve heard from his wife that he’s in the prison hospital. His condition isn’t good. And there are many other relatives whose fate I don’t know. Probably they’re all in prison but I don’t know. I can’t tell.

Your father saw the video and got so angry that his blood pressure got really high. We wondered what our daughters had done. It didn’t matter that we told you how it was. They published the thing, and now what’s going to become of us?” Zohre started crying. “We’re living well. Your father is working. He has his salary, and every month I’m getting mine. I’ve even sent money to Zumret. The government is, you know, treating us so well. Not a single thing has gone wrong. We told you that we were ill. Can you please just do it?

She needed Humar to take photos of herself in and around landmarks in Uppsala to show their neighborhood authori­ties that Humar was studying there. Humar was packing for a vacation to Berlin and asked if she could do it later. “No,” Zohre said. She sounded as if she was about to cry. “Send me the photos as soon as possible,” she pleaded.
