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 Akbar Imin, Abduqeyum Ablimit, Shohret Nijat, Perhat Halmurat, Mutellip Imin, and Atikem Rozi, as well as ethnic Yi Luo Yuwei. According to public health NGO Aizhixing (reprinted in China Free Press, 7 March 14), on January 15, 2014, public security officials in Urumqi municipality, XUAR, criminally detained Imin, a health advocate and former Aizhixing employee, on a charge relating to "endangering state security." The Global Times (9 December 14) reported that on December 8, 2014, the Urumqi Intermediate People's Court in Urumqi 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, who founded Uyghur Online, 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).
