(sister)<br /><br />Testimony 4: Anonymous, but with a verified identity.<br /><br />Testimony 5|6: Amnesty International, a human rights organization.31 years old Malaysian university student between 2010 to 2017.<br />In December 2017 completed her Studies with excellent grades. In January 2018 was set to commence a doctorate degree. However on 26th of December 2017 returned to ghulja in xinjiang and has not been heard from since then. <br />2 or 3 days after arriving in Ghulja city she changed her profile picture on wechat to inform her sister Gulzira that she had arrived safely. <br />Then lost contact with her until a few weeks into January 2018 when again she changed her profile picture on wechat. The picture was frightening as it showed a dark room with a shadow figure in the background. From that photo I suspected that my sister was in trouble and this change in profile signaled that she may have been sent to the reducation camp as it was common during that time that people who came back from overseas was sent to these camps.<br />I was then advised that my sister had indeed been sent to a reeducation camp through a friend of mine who gave no other details and subsequently deleted me from her wechat.<br />Since January 2018 i have been investigating my sister Gulgina’s whereabouts.<br />Gulgina was only in malaysia for her studies and never got involved in politics.<br />On the weekend she gave courses in legal studies to students for extra money to cover her expenses but most of all school fees was covered by her father. <br />She was an exceptional student completing her masters, PHD and then onto her Doctorate degree.<br />Gulgina planned to spend 1 month in Ghulja to visit her parents and family as she had missed them greatly.<br />Since end of December 2017 her whereabouts is not know and no news of her whereabouts has become available.<br /><br />[direct submission from testifier (Testimony 3): گۈلگىنە تاشمەمەت ،1987.جى يىلى 9جى ئاينىڭ 17جى كۈنى غۇلجا شەھىرىدە تۇغۇلغان ،2010جى يىلىدىن 2017جى يىلىغىچە مالايسىيە تىخنىلوگىيە ئونۋىرسىتىدە كومپىتۇر ئىلمى كەسپىدە ماگىسترلىق ئونۋانىنى ئالغان ،2017جى يىلى 12جى ئاينىڭ 26جى كۈنى مالايسىيە كۇۋالامپۇردىن جوڭگو گواڭجوۋ ئۈرۈمچى غۇلجا بىلىتىنى ئىلىپ غۇلجىغا قايتقان پىتى ھازىرغىچە خەۋەرى يوق]<br /><br />[according to info from a testimony event (Testimony 4) held in early 2019, her address in Ghulja is: Xinhua West Road, 9th alley, No. 158]Re-education camp possible in Ghulja City<br /><br />[direct submission from testifier: غۇلجا شەھىرىدە ]End of December 2017 or early January 2018<br /><br />[direct submission from testifier: تەخمىنەن 2018جى يىلى 1جى ئايدا]Possibly because she had studied abroadLast status is she is still in reeducation centre<br /><br />Testimony 7: Gulgine suddenly called her sister in Germany in early May 2020, and they would talk for around 8 minutes, with Gulgine saying that she was now an English teacher in the city’s development zone. Her parents were also present during the video call. Everyone looked fine, but the father had lost his ability to speak.She was informed by a friend on wechat that she was sent to reeducation camp but did not provide other details and subsequently was deleted by her friend on wechat.<br /><br />[direct submission from testifier: غۇلجىدىكى خوشنا دوستۇم ئارقىلىق يەنى ئۈندىدار ئارقىلىق بىلدىم]Amnesty International has previously issued an Urgent Action for Gulgina (Testimony 6): https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/asa17/8644/2018/en/?fbclid=IwAR1TmVVUexb6mArscF_XV3rf8T2KW0FRJeLBw7718VtAkpwibr2c-LXEmXM<br /><br />Additional info from UHRP report (summarized): At first, Gulgine went back to Ghulja in March 2017 because her father was sick. When she was there, the local police made her sign a statement saying that after she finished her classes in Malaysia, she would return to China. If she didn’t return, she’d lose all connection with her parents. The police were from the neighborhood. It was a direct threat. They said: ‘If you don’t come back, it will be dangerous for your father.’ Her father was under a cloud of suspicion because he had sent money to Gulzire in Germany. Also, the police collected blood samples from her and confiscated her passport for a month, after then she went back to Malaysia for the last time.<br /><br />She is also mentioned in the CECC report: https://www.cecc.gov/sites/chinacommission.house.gov/files/documents/CECC%20Pris%20List_20181011_1424.pdfTestimony 1|2|3*|7: Gulzire Tashmemet, originally from Ghulja but now residing in Germany. (sister)<br /><br />Testimony 4: Anonymous, but with a verified identity.<br /><br />Testimony 5|6: Amnesty International, a human rights organization.Gulgine Tashmemet is a student from Ghulja City. From 2010 to 2017, she studied at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), obtaining a BS and an MS in computer science. She was set to commence her a doctorate degree there in January 2018. Most of her tuition was paid by her father, but she also taught classes on the weekends as a part-time job.<br /><br />Address in Ghulja: 158 Ninth Alley, West Xinhua Road.<br /><br />Chinese passport number: G33768927.In Ghulja.Gulgine first ran into issues with the authorities when she went back to Ghulja in March 2017 to see her sick father. While there, she was made to sign a statement by the neighborhood police, promising that she would return to China after she finished her classes in Malaysia. She’d lose all connection with her parents if she didn’t, and what they said to her was a direct threat: “If you don’t come back, it will be dangerous for your father.” By that time, her father was already under suspicion because he had previously sent money to Gulzire in Germany. The police also collected Gulgine’s blood samples and confiscated her passport for a month, prior to allowing her to return to Malaysia (for what would be her last time).<br /><br />Gulgine’s last trip to China was intended as a visit to her family prior to commencing a PhD in Malaysia. She flew there on December 26, 2017 (Kuala Lumpur to Guangzhou to Urumqi). A few days after arriving, she updated her WeChat picture as a sign that she was fine, but a few weeks into January she changed the background to one resembling a prison cell – a wall in a dark room with a shadow of a person. The testifier thus believes that she was detained sometime in January.<br /><br />Afterwards, there was no news for years, until the victim suddenly called Gulgine in early May 2020. The video call, which lasted around 8 minutes, also included their parents, with Gulgine telling Gulzire that she was well and now working as an English teacher in the city’s development zone (开发区). Gulgine says that everyone looked well, but that their father had lost his ability to speak.Possibly because she had studied abroad.Allegedly released and working as an English teacher, though the exact situation remains unclear.Gulzire learned of the detention through WeChat and through friends/neighbors in Ghulja.<br /><br />She learned about Gulgine’s alleged release from Gulgine herself, when the latter called her.Amnesty International has previously issued an Urgent Action for Gulgine: https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/asa17/8644/2018/en/<br /><br />Her story is also featured in the UHRP report on disappeared intellectuals: https://docs.uhrp.org/pdf/Detained-and-Disappeared-Intellectuals-Under-Assault-in-the-Uyghur-Homeland.pdf<br /><br />She is also mentioned in the CECC report: https://www.cecc.gov/sites/chinacommission.house.gov/files/documents/CECC%20Pris%20List_20181011_1424.pdf18-35FUyghurIliunclear (soft)Jan. 2018 – Mar. 2018related to going abroadstudent

Her passport, ID card, and phone were all confiscated. Going to the hospital to see her children, she would learn that the oldest was in critical condition – he would die the following day. According to Mihrigul, the other two children also had scars on their necks, which the doctors claimed were from feeding tubes being installed, as they allegedly could not be fed otherwise.<br /><br />Her second arrest occurred in April 2017. She was taken from her home in Cherchen County to a detention center, where she would then stay for three months. From there, she was released to a mental hospital as she kept having seizures and losing consciousness.

2247Saltanat Bahtiyar????????????????E?Gene A. BuninNo relation.Saltanat Bahtiyar, a student from China – presumably Uyghur, judging by the name – who studied Russian as a foreign language at the Kyrgyz National University. She was in the third year of studies when she was expelled for failing to complete the study curriculum (by virtue of failing to return from China).In Xinjiang.Her expulsion order is dated as July 12, 2018. It is likely that she returned to China after the fall semester of 2017 and then never came back, missing the entire spring semester and then being formally expelled.At the very least, she has been unable to return to Kyrgyzstan to resume her studies, suggesting that her documents were likely confiscated (in the best case). In the worst case, she may be in detention, but this has not been confirmed.From the staff of the Russian language department at the university. I was also given a copy of her expulsion order.It is possible that I mistook the name and gender here. While the expulsion order said &quot;Bahtiyar Saltanat&quot;, I don’t think this is likely since Bahtiyar is a man’s name and Saltanat is a woman’s, and an Uyghur man would be unlikely to have the latter as a last name. As such, I think it is most likely that this is a woman with the name of Saltanat Bahtiyar.18-35FUyghurstudent

4341Zeynur Turdi6531??19????????E?Addison McTague, an American graduate student at Harvard University. (friend)Zainur Turdi/Turti? (last name unknown, pinyin: Zainuer Tuerdi) graduted from Beijing University of Chemical Technology (北京化工大学) in 2017 with a degree in English. She had been accepted to a master’s program in Australia in the hopes of earning a degree in teaching English as Second Language (ESL).Concentration camp in Kashgar5-Jul-17While I am unsure if a reason was properly given, I assume it is because she traveled to Egypt in 2016 to visit her older brother who was there studying Islam. To my knowledge, he still remains abroad. Some may also claim her detention is because she refused to take off hijab while in Beijing, or because she prayed in her dorm room with five Han Chinese girls around and in classrooms where some occasionally witnessed these overt acts of religiosity. Or, they may cite her undergraduate thesis for her English major as &quot;inciting terrorism.&quot; I’ve included it here under supplementary materials. She had sent it to me asking that I edit it; I’ve included both the original version she sent me and the one I edited with tracked changes. I include both because if the thesis is by any chance available anywhere, it is likely the edited version.Assumably still detained.She was a dear friend of mine when I studied in Beijing in the spring of 2017. While I left Beijing in May 2017, she and I remained in contact throughout the following month. She blocked me for one week on WeChat in anticipation of her return to Kashgar to take some test apparently mandated before she could graduate from her university. Upon her return to Beijing, she added me again and told me, crying, that authorities had promptly confiscated her passport in the airport in XJ — &quot;for safe keeping.&quot; She knew then she could not go to Australia and instead began to muse about trying for a master’s program in Beijing or Shanghai the following year. The day she graduated was the last I heard from her. <br />I returned to Beijing in the summer of 2018 to learn that she had been detained July 2017.She was 24 or 25 at the time of her graduation in 2017, making her 26 or 27 now.<br />Her email was ritalove0310@163.com<br />Her English name was Rita.<br />Her university ID may have been 2013017307 (as pulled from the file name of the final draft of her thesis) <br />The confidant who told me she was detained was the same who told me her older brother, Muhammad, was able to flee to Turkey from Egypt. Muhammad was last heard from in June 2018. The confidant had not heard anything from him in some time, so requested I attempt reaching out in July 2018. I similarly received no response. The numbers I previously had for him on varying platforms (i.e. WeChat, WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal) have all been disconnected.Addison McTague, an American graduate student at Harvard University. (friend)Zeynur Turdi (pinyin: Zainuer Tuerdi, English name “Rita”) graduated from Beijing University of Chemical Technology in 2017 with a degree in English. She had been accepted to a master’s program in Australia, and hoped to later achieve her English as Second Language (ESL), a teacher certification degree.<br /><br />Zeynur was 24 or 25 at the time of her graduation, during the summer 2017. Her university ID may have been 2013017307, as pulled from the file name of the final draft of her thesis.Concentration camp in Kashgar (as learned through an undisclosed confidant).After her studies at Beijing University (between May and June 2017), Addison was blocked for one week on WeChat in anticipation of Zeynur’s return to Kashgar. This was to take a test, seemingly mandated before she could graduate from her university. Upon her return to Beijing, Zeynur returned to WeChat, informing her friend that authorities had promptly confiscated her passport at the airport in Xinjiang “for safekeeping.”<br /><br />The day that Zeynur graduated was the last that the testifier had contact with her. On return to Beijing in the summer of 2018, she learned that Zeynur had been detained on July 5, 2017.Addison assumes that it is because Zeynur traveled to Egypt in 2016 to visit her older brother, Muhammad, who was there studying Islam.<br /><br />Other possible reasons include Zeynur wearing a hijab in Beijing, praying in her dorm room with five Han Chinese girls around, or praying in classrooms with occasional witnesses. Her undergraduate thesis for her English major may also be accused of “inciting terrorism” [included under supplementary materials, edited and not].Presumably still detained.They were close friends while studying in Beijing in the spring of 2017.
