Short Summary
According to RFA (28 January 14) and the NYT (26 September 14), in or around January 2014, security officials in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and Beijing municipality detained Uyghur university students Mutellip Imin, Abduqeyum Ablimit, Shohret Nijat, Perhat Halmurat, Atikem Rozi and Akbar Imin, as well as ethnic Yi Luo Yuwei. The Global Times (9 December 14) reported that on December 8, 2014, the Urumqi Intermediate People's Court in Urumqi municipality, XUAR, imposed prison sentences of between 3 and 8 years on all 7 students, convicting them of "separatism" (CL, art. 103) for alleged work on the Uyghur-language news website Uyghur Online. Reports do not specify Imin's exact sentence or whereabouts. The 7 had been students of Uyghur scholar Ilham Tohti at Minzu University in Beijing. In September 2014, an Urumqi court sentenced Tohti to life in prison on the charge of "separatism" (Xinhua, 23 September 14). According to Mutellip Imin's blog (9 December 13), on July 14, 2013, authorities previously detained him at the Beijing Capital International Airport as he prepared to board a flight to Turkey. On July 15, 3 security officials escorted Imin to Urumqi, where they detained and interrogated him. In October 2013, authorities escorted Imin to Lop [Luopu] county, XUAR.
