Short Summary
According to AI, UAA, RFA, and NY Times, around July 23 or 24, 2010, the Urumqi Intermediate People's Court, Xinjiang, sentenced 3 Uyghur Webmasters, Dilshat Perhat (administrator of the Diyarim Web site), Nureli (Selkin Web site), and Nijat Azat (Shabnam Web site), to 5, 3, and 10 years' imprisonment, respectively, for endangering state security. Sources connected the cases to the Web sites not deleting postings about hardships in Xinjiang and, in one instance, permitting posting of announcements for a demonstration in Urumqi in July 2009. Unidentified men took Dilshat Perhat from his home on August 7, 2009. Authorities earlier interrogated him from July 24 to August 2 in connection to the demonstration and riots in Urumqi. Others involved with Uyghur Web sites--Nureli, Selkin administrator Muhemmet, Diyarim worker Obulqasim, and Diyarim contributors Xeyrinisa, Xalnur, and Erkin--also were detained during the same periods. Nijat Azat is also believed to have been detained then. Further information about the cases, including the locations at which Dilshat Perhat, Nureli, and Nijat Azat served or are serving their sentences and charges, if any, against the other Web site workers, is unknown.
