China: 70-year-old Uyghur editor held incommunicado: Qurban Mamut
Retired editor Qurban Mamut has not been seen or heard from by his son since November 2017. Qurban Mamut visited his son in the US in February 2017. His son, a US citizen, believes that having relatives outside China is the reason behind his father’s detention. A source told the him in September 2018 that Qurban Mamut had been sent to a “transformation-through-education” facility. Given his age and lack of information about his condition, there are serious concerns for Qurban Mamut’s wellbeing.
