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 Atikem Rozi, Abduqeyum Ablimit, Shohret Nijat, Perhat Halmurat, Mutellip Imin, and Akbar Imin, as well as ethnic Yi Luo Yuwei. According to Foreign Policy (18 December 14), on November 25, 2014, a court tried Rozi and the other 6 students on the charge of "separatism" (CL, art. 103) for alleged work on the Uyghur-language news website Uyghur Online. 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. Reports do not specify Rozi'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). In a previous incident in February 2013, authorities detained and interrogated Rozi after she attempted to apply for a passport to study abroad (Uyghur Online, 7 February 13).
