China: Health Professional Action
Ablikim Abdiriyim, aged 33, held in Tianshan Detention Centre in Urumqi, is reported to be seriously unwell as a result of torture and ill treatment he has experienced during his detention. He has been continually denied access to appropriate medical care. Amnesty International is gravely concerned about his health, and fears that his life may be at risk. Alim Abdiriyim, aged 31, detained at the same time as his brother Ablikim, is reported to have been tortured whilst in detention, and may also be in need of urgent medical treatment.
