Short Summary
According to SMHRIC (16 November 10, 27 December 10), RFA (18 November 10, 8 February 11) and AFP (via Yahoo!, 27 November 10), on November 11, 2010, public security officers in Ke'erqin, Tongliao, Inner Mongolia, took Mongol activist and writer Govruud Huuchinhuu to the Ke'erqin PSB. She was a member of the banned Southern Mongolian Democratic Alliance and wrote on her blog that she would welcome Hada, the SMDA leader, upon his expected December 10, 2010, release from prison. SMHRIC reported that authorities returned Huuchinhuu to her home that day and put her under "house arrest." She was hospitalized in late December; after release on January 27, 2011, her whereabouts were unknown. SMHRIC reported (20 December 12) that on November 28, 2012, the Tongliao Intermediate People’s Court convicted Huuchinhuu on the charge of “providing state secrets to a foreign organization” (CL, Art. 111). Huuchinhuu appealed the verdict; authorities kept her under “house arrest” in a relative’s home. Dui Hua (26 November 13) reported that Huuchinhuu was given a suspended sentence. In January 2015, SMHRIC (6 January 15) reported that she remained under home confinement in Tongliao. On October 25, 2016, Huuchinhuu reportedly died of brain cancer in Tongliao (SMRHIC, 25 October 16).
