Short Summary
According to RFA (13 June 16), on March 29, 2016, authorities from Aksu prefecture, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, reportedly detained 26-year-old Tursunjan Memet in Korla city, Bayingol Mongol Autonomous Prefecture, XUAR, and later reportedly arrested him on the charges of "inciting ethnic hatred" and "separatism." Memet was an administrator for the Uyghur-language website Misranim. RFA (3 February 17) reported that in March 2016, authorities detained Omerjan Hesen (also known as Bozqir), a Party and government official who had written articles on Misranim that authorities alleged had attacked Party and government ethnic or religious policies. Authorities reportedly first held Memet in Aksu, before transferring him to a railway detention center in Urumqi municipality. Memet's father told RFA that authorities later held both Memet and Hesen at a detention center in Aksu, where officials prevented relatives from visiting Memet. In addition to Memet and Hesen, between April and May 2016, authorities reportedly took into custody 3 other website administrators and writers in various locations in the XUAR—Ababekri Muhtar, Ekberjan Eset, and Ablimit Ghojabdulla—to prevent them from criticizing official restrictions on Uyghurs' activities during Ramadan.
