Short Summary
Chinese authorities detained Rebiya Kadeer, her secretary, and her son Ablikim Abdyirim on August 11, 1999, in Urumqi outside the Yindu Hotel. She was en route to meet an official US congressional staff delegation staying at the hotel. Kadeer was convicted at a secret trial and sentenced on March 10, 2000, to 8 years in prison for "unlawfully supplying state secrets or intelligence to entities outside China," based on newspaper clippings she had sent her husband in the U.S. Kadeer was elected as a member of the Provincial People's Political Consultative Conference in Xinjiang from 1993-1998. In 1995, she was a delegate to the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing. Kadeer’s sentence was reduced by one year in March 2004 for good behavior in prison. Kadeer was released on medical parole on 17 March, 2005, 3 days before U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to Beijing. She flew to the U.S. the same day.
