China: List of Political Prisoners Detained or Imprisoned as of October 10, 2010 (1,452 cases)
• This document, published by the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) contains information on political and religious prisoners currently known or believed to be detained or imprisoned in China. Cases are listed according to the date of detention in descending order, placing the most recent detentions first. The PPD was created and is maintained by the CECC and is accessible and searchable by the public at ppd.cecc.gov. • As of October 10, 2010, the PPD contained information on a total of 5,689 cases of political or religious imprisonment in China. Of those, 1,452 are cases of political and religious prisoners currently known or believed to be detained or imprisoned, and 4,237 are cases of prisoners who are known or believed to have been released, or executed, who died while imprisoned or soon after release, or who escaped. • The CECC notes that there are considerably more than 1,452 cases of current political and religious imprisonment in China. The CECC works on an ongoing basis to add cases of political and religious imprisonment to the PPD. • An increase in the number of cases included on successive CECC prisoner lists indicates that new cases have been added to the PPD—but it does not indicate that all of the new cases are of detentions that took place since publication of the previous CECC prisoner list. List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

201000430 ethnic/relig Tibetan Gyurme ion Tenzin According to a September 29, 2010, Phayul report, on or soon after September 19 public security officials in Zhanang (Dranang) county, Shannan (Lhokha) prefecture, TAR, detained two monks holding the rank of monastic officials from Mindrolling Monastery, located in Zhanang. Earlier in September the two monks, one named Gyurme Tenzin and the other unidentified, requested Chinese officials to permit Dralha Rinpoche to visit the monastery. (Rinpoche is an honorific indicating that Tibetan Buddhists consider him a trulku, a reincarnated Tibetan Buddhist teacher.) Dralha is regarded as the highest-ranking figure among Mindrolling teachers. On September 19, approximately 50 Mindroling monks staged a protest to support their demand that officials allow Dralha to visit Mindrolling. Security officials and People's Armed Police "cordoned off" the monastery; later approximately 80 officials arrived at Mindrolling to conduct "patriotic education" sessions. The report did not identify Dralha's usual place of residence but noted that Chinese authorities "monitored . . . his movements in Tibet."

(The punishment description suggests it is "public surveillance" provided under Art. 38-41 of the Criminal Law.)

According to Radio Free Asia (12 May 10) and Tibetan Review (17 May 10) reports, security forces' suppression in May of Tibetan protests in Mangkang against the resumption of mining at three mountain locations Tibetans regard as sacred resulted in five injured and 13 detained protesters (none named).

According to Dui Hua, CHRD, and HRIC, on July 5, 2010, security officials in Suining, Sichuan province arrested Liu Xianbin, a 1989 democracy movement participant on charges of “inciting subversion of state power.” Liu was detained on June 28, 2010, reportedly because of articles penned by Liu posted outside of China and his support of activists and human rights defenders. Liu is a signatory to Charter 08. Previously, Liu was imprisoned in 1992 and 1999. The Beijing Intermediate People’s Court sentenced him to two-and-a-half years in prison in 1992 on the charge of “counterrevolutionary propaganda and incitement,” for his role in the 1989 June 4th democracy protests. Upon his release, in 1993, he founded the magazine "Citizen’s Forum," organized a branch of the China Human Rights Watch group, and tried to register the Sichuan Preparatory Committee of the Chinese Democracy Party. In 1999, the Suining Intermediate People’s Court sentenced Liu to 13 years for subversion as punishment for his activities. The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention determined Liu’s 1999 detention was arbitrary. Following his formal arrest on July 5, 2010, Liu remains at the Suining Detention Center.

Tibetans living near the monastery had expanded their residences in past years by “encroaching” into the public road leading to the monastery, said Phayul’s source, a Tibetan living in India who has contacts in Dzoege. Officials reportedly did not respond to complaints. After additional alleged encroachment, monastery officials and local leaders met to discuss the matter and the quarrel took place. The 7 Tibetan leaders are Choelho, Konlho, Atam, Lhago, Jigje Kyab, Loche, and Dorje Tsering.

Officials reportedly accused Buddha (name as reported), detained June 21, and Kalsang Jinpa, detained July 19, of "inciting splittism" by writing articles about Tibet and the Tibetan protests that began in March 2008. Information is not available about their place of detention. Authorities claimed that the articles encouraged Tibetan scholars "to participate in 'splittist' activities," TPI reported. Officials also accused the men of writing for another magazine, Drum of the Time (Durab Kyinga), according to TR. RSF reported that Buddha hailed from Aba (Ngaba) T&QAP in Sichuan province, studied medicine, and became a "village doctor." Kalsang Jinpa, also from Aba, was a Tsayul Monastery monk until 1993, traveled to India and studied until 1996, then returned home.

According to a June 12, 2010, Phayul report based on a Voice of Tibet broadcast, on June 7 public security officials in the seat of Jiangda (Jomda) county, Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, TAR, detained Wara Monastery monks Kalsang Dargye, Tashi Lhundrub, and Tashi Wangdu. Authorities had summoned the monks from Tongpu (Thangpu) township, the monastery’s location, for questioning at the Jiangda Public Security Bureau. Police suspected the monks of “leading and instigating” local protest activity in 2008 and 2009, according to an unidentified source. Based on the monks’ place of interrogation, it is likely that at least initially they were held at the Jiangda PSB Detention Center. No information is available about criminal charges, if any, against the monks. Based on the report’s allegation that police suspected the monks of “leading and instigating” protests, the monks may face prosecution under China’s Criminal Law for “endangering state security” by “inciting splittism.”

Guangdon According to CRD, the procuratorate of Foshan city, Guangdong province, approved g Province the arrest of rights defender Liu Xiantong on June 30, 2010. Authorities first detained Liu, a resident of Foshan’s Nan Zhuang village, on June 7. According to RFA, authorities proceeded to give Liu 10 days of criminal detention that evening for “intentionally destroying public property.” On June 17, authorities continued to hold Liu in criminal detention, though this time accusing him of “obstructing official duties” that Liu allegedly committed in October 2007. CRD reported that Liu Xiantong has been active as a land rights defender since 2003, and was once detained by authorities for more than three months in 2006 as a result of his work. CRD noted that one day before his June 7 detention, Liu went to the People’s Court in Guangdong province to request a copy of the judgment of a lawsuit against the Guangdong Provincial Government’s illegal acquisition of land; CRD stated that Liu’s recent lawsuit against the provincial government and the provincial governor maybe the primary reason why authorities detained and arrested him. Liu’s current whereabouts are unknown.

According to a June 12, 2010, Phayul report based on a Voice of Tibet broadcast, on June 7 public security officials in the seat of Jiangda (Jomda) county, Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, TAR, detained Wara Monastery monks Kalsang Dargye, Tashi Lhundrub, and Tashi Wangdu. Authorities had summoned the monks from Tongpu (Thangpu) township, the monastery’s location, for questioning at the Jiangda Public Security Bureau. Police suspected the monks of “leading and instigating” local protest activity in 2008 and 2009, according to an unidentified source. Based on the monks’ place of interrogation, it is likely that at least initially they were held at the Jiangda PSB Detention Center. No information is available about criminal charges, if any, against the monks. Based on the report’s allegation that police suspected the monks of “leading and instigating” protests, the monks may face prosecution under China’s Criminal Law for “endangering state security” by “inciting splittism.”

According to a public security official cited by Radio Free Asia, Memet Turghun Abdulla, a Uyghur man from Yengisar county, Kashgar district, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, disappeared from his home sometime around May 2010 and is believed to be in detention. Yengisar county state security officials had originally detained Memet Turghun Abdulla in August 2009 for writing an online article about Han Chinese in Guangdong province killing Uyghur factory workers in June 2009, an event which prompted demonstrations in Urumqi on July 5, 2009. He was subsequently confined to his house by authorities. The RFA source said it is unknown who detained him in May, and local police denied knowledge about his disappearance. However, a recent internal Party bulletin said he had been detained for distributing "separatist ideas." Further details about his case, including his current location, are not known.

Beijing Shi According to Radio Free Asia and China Free Press, authorities formally arrested (prov.) Beijing artist Wu Yuren on July 2, 2010, on Charges of “using violent methods to obstruct judicial officials from performing public duties,” after Jiuxianqiao public security officials in Chaoyang district, Beijing municipality, detained him on May 31, 2010. On that day, Wu reportedly visited the station to help a friend whereupon the police detained and beat him after a verbal disagreement. Police reportedly claim Wu attacked them when they confiscated his cell phone. In February, Wu participated along with other artists in a street demonstration close to Tiananmen in the center of Beijing to protest being forcibly evicted from a Beijing artist community known as the “008 Art District.” Reports indicate Wu later won compensation related to the eviction case. Wu reportedly believes that public security officials began to follow him and reports say people close to him think his arrest may be in retribution for his activism. Wu is currently being held in the Chaoyang detention center

According to the Workers' Forum (23 August 10), authorities in Pingdingshan city, Henan province, detained Miao Wanli, a worker at the Ping Textile Group factory, on May 30. The same article also reported that, on July 8, Miao was "officially arrested for 'disturbing social order.'" Miao reportedly participated in a strike that began on May 11, demonstrating against what workers believed to be unfair compensation after the enterprise's reorganization. The Ping Textile Group factory was formerly a collective enterprise, founded with capital that workers contributed. After three bankruptcy filings and reorganizations, manager Zhang Xianshun became the owner. Dissatisfied with the compensation checks, workers stopped production, but authorities moved in violently to clear the strikers. In response, Miao and 28 other workers petitioned provincial authorities in Zhengzhou city, and Miao was detained when he returned to Pingdingshan. He is currently held at the Pingdingshan PSB station; no further information is available on his current status.

Based on Phayul (23 July 10, 27 July 10) and Tibetan government-in-exile (27 July 10) reports, a series of events from May to July 2010 at Shag Rongpo Monastery in Naqu (Nagchu) county, Naqu prefecture, TAR, resulted in the expulsion and apparent house arrest of abbot and senior Tibetan Buddhism teacher, the expulsion of 17 monks, the detention of 5 additional monks and 1 layperson, the subsequent imprisonment of 1 detained monk, the apparent sentence to "public surveillance" of another detained monk, and the suicide of a 70-year-old monk, Ngawang Gyatso. On May 17, authorities detained 75-year-old Dawa Khyenrab Wangchug (or Dawa, apparently regarded as a reincarnated Tibetan Buddhist teacher) and accused him of contacting the Dalai Lama about the search for the reincarnation of a Shag Rongpo teacher. Article 2 of government measures (translated by ICT) effective in 2007 asserted government control over identifying incarnations and banned involvement of any "foreign" group or individual. Officials stripped Dawa of his monastic posts, barred him from contact with Rongpo and the monks, and reportedly put him under apparent house arrest at his residence in Naqu county.

Xu’s wife asserts Xu is not involved in the business and has not received money from it. HRIC reported that elderly villagers involved in the business were questioned and forced to sign documents they did not understand because they were illiterate. Public security officers reportedly did not provide a detention notice when they took Xu into custody. They also have not allowed Xu to see his lawyer reportedly because they assert Xu’s case involves “state secrets.” He is currently detained in the Beihai Number Two Detention Center awaiting trial. According to CAA (8 May 10, 10 May 10), on May 7, 2010, authorities in Guangzhou city, Guangdong province took Wang Dao—pastor of the unregistered Liangren Church and a 1989 Tiananmen activist—from his home to a local police station for several hours. They told his wife they took him in connection with a letter (via CAA) he published on the Internet about harassment of his church. Authorities took him from his home again on May 8; on May 9, authorities gave his wife a notice of criminal detention for Wang for “gathering a mob to disrupt public order,” according to CAA. A release notice from Guangzhou’s Panyu District PSB Detention Center (via CAA, 14 June 10) states that authorities formally arrested Wang on June 9 for “impairing credit card management” and released him on bail on June 13 to await trial. According to CAA (17 August 10), on August 12, authorities in Guangzhou tried to pressure Wang to join the state-controlled church, took him to a police station on August 13, and released him that day. According to CAA (8 May 10), authorities in Guangzhou have taken Wang to police stations at least 10 times in the past 2 years and have repeatedly forced him to change church venues.

According to a TCHRD report, on May 2, 2010, public security officials in Lhasa city, the TAR capital, detained Samdrub Gyatso when he staged a mid-afternoon solo political protest in front of Lhasa’s principal Tibetan Buddhist temple, the Jokhang (or Tsug Lhakhang). He shouted slogans calling for the Dalai Lama’s return to Tibet, the release of the Panchen Lama (Gedun Choekyi Nyima, the Panchen Lama identified by the Dalai Lama in 1995), and “proper allocation and delivery of earthquake relief from international donors” to communities of nomads in Yushu TAP, Qinghai province, where a quake struck on April 14, 2010. Samdrub Gyatso held up a banned Tibetan flag and had another attached to his shirt. Police seized and removed him. According to a Phayul report (17 June 10) citing Voice of Tibet, Samdrub has been tortured and transferred to TAR Prison (Drapchi). Information is not available on the charges against him and his sentence. Samdrub Gyatso was imprisoned for several months in 2008 when he crossed back into the TAR after an undocumented visit to India and carried in books of the Dalai Lama’s speeches.

The memorial was held in Suzhou province and police brought Dong back to Nanchang city, Jiangxi, where Dong lives. Police have charged Dong with subversion of state power but the underlying basis for the charge is not known. Under the online name “Gentle Breeze and Bright Moon,” Dong has written several articles on democracy which have been circulated on the Internet. Earlier in April, Dong traveled to Fuzhou province to take part in protests outside the courtroom where three activists, Fan Yanqiong, Wu Huaying, and You Jingyou were sentenced to prison on slander charges. The three had used the Internet to call on officials to investigate the alleged rape and murder of a young woman.

According to RFA, on April 30, 2010, public security officials intercepted, beat, and detained Feng Yongji, a petitioner from Shihezi city in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, during the opening ceremony at the Shanghai Expo. Ding Xinmin, Feng’s husband, said that Shihezi authorities arrived on May 1 at the Shanghai location where Feng was detained, and started to beat her. Ding said that his wife was kicked in the head five times and became unconscious. Shanghaibased Shihezi liaison officers then returned Feng back to Shihezi, and sent her to 10 days of administrative detention for “disrupting the working order of the Shanghaibased Shihezi liaison officers.” She is presumed to have been released after serving the period of administrative detention. According to RFA, Feng has been petitioning government officials since 2001, when the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps Eighth Agricultural Division Nongbashi Intermediate Court sentenced her husband to nine years in prison for “intentional assault.” Feng petitioned for 5 years before securing Ding’s release, though Feng continued to petition in order to “discuss justice.” According to CHRD, Shanghai petitioner and activist Cao Yibao was ordered to disturbing social order. Cao and 10 others were reportedly detained by police who were conducting ID checks outside the Shanghai World Expo on April 29, 2010. The group was detained at the Shanghai PSB Pudong District Detention Center, but Cao’s current location is not known. For several years, Cao has petitioned the government regarding her forced eviction from her home in Shanghai. In December 2008, Cao and 77 other petitioners were detained in Beijing. Cao was reportedly taken to an illegal detention center, or black jail, where a Shanghai government official ordered police to beat her after a verbal outburst from Cao. Cao reportedly received multiple fractures to her facial bones, but officials rejected her requests for an investigation. Cao, who is 60 years old, reportedly suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure.

Xu’s wife said in an interview that Baoding police detained Xu in Shandong province while Xu was visiting Yuan Weijing, the wife of imprisoned activist Chen Guangcheng. Xu’s wife said the visit occurred from April 26 to 27. Xu’s wife also said Xu had been involved in human rights petitioning activities and had been questioned and taken into custody by police in the past. Xu was a reporter at Public Opinion (Minyi) magazine. He is reportedly being held at the Gaoyang RTL Center. In August, the Xinshi District Court heard Xu’s administration litigation lawsuit claiming that the RTL sentence for “fraud” had “no factual basis.” Xu’s health, which includes heart disease, reportedly has deteriorated since his detention. He also reportedly is still recovering from an alleged beating by other prisoners, leaving him with hearing damage.

Zuo previously served a year in prison for his participation in the June 4, 1989, Tiananmen protests, and was sentenced to two years of RTL in 2006 for “inciting subversion of state power.” In 2006, authorities accused him of being a member of the outlawed Union of Chinese Nationalists (Zhongguo Fanlan Lianmeng). He had nominated himself to run for the local people’s congress and had spread pro-democracy materials on a school campus while he was a teacher. He is currently being held in the Santai county PSB detention center.

Police searched his home and confiscated computers and documents. RFA reported that officials formally arrested him on May 28 on the charge of inciting “splittism.” He was known as an intellectual whose views “aligned with the Chinese government’s views on modernization, religion, and culture in Tibet” (HPPE), but in early 2010 he published a book critical of government handling of Tibetan protests that began in 2008 (RFA). Officials closed a family-run bookshop on April 12. On April 17, after an April 14 earthquake shattered the capital of Yushu TAP in Qinghai, Tagyal signed an open letter urging Tibetans in veiled language to donate quake relief via “someone one can trust” to avoid “corruption.”

The report provides more detail on 18-year-old Gyiga, who protested in the market area of the Batang town where his family lives, and reportedly displayed a Tibetan flag as he shouted slogans calling for Tibetan freedom, the Dalai Lama's invitation to visit Tibet, human rights for Tibetans, and a halt to mining in Tibet. Approximately 12 policemen seized him as he protested, allegedly beat him on the spot, then took him to a police station. As of May 2010, Gyiga's family had learned nothing about his location or wellbeing. In the other protest, 23-year-old Petrug shouted similar slogans, including the call for a halt to mining. The report did not specify the location of Petrug’s protest but noted that he is from "the same region."

Beijing Shi According to the Southern Mongolia Human Rights Information Center (SMHRIC), (prov.) officials at the Beijing Capital International Airport detained rights advocate Sodmongol, an ethnic Mongol living in Chaoyang city, Liaoning province, on April 18, 2010, as he was waiting to board a flight to the United States. Sodmongol had planned to attend the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York as part of a delegation arranged by U.S.-based SMHRIC. The following day, authorities in Chaoyang searched Sodmongol's home, confiscated computers and other items, and told Sodmongol's wife of his detention. Sodmongol was the administrator of two Internet forums--now shut down--that had promoted dialogue on Mongols' rights. He also organized workshops and other events to promote the protection of Mongols' rights and the use of the Mongolian language. Sources cited in a July 15, 2010, Amnesty International article conjectured that he was held in detention in Chaoyang and that the procuratorate was investigating the case, but officials did not confirm his whereabouts. Further details about his case are not known.

On the basis of an undisclosed document, the Shangqiu Municipal RTL Committee determined that the church members belonged to a “cult” and ordered them to serve one year of RTL each, according to CAA (3 August 2010). In May, Gao filed an administrative lawsuit in the Weidu district People’s Court in Xuchang city, Henan province against the Shangqiu Municipal RTL Committee to challenge the legality of the RTL punishments, according to CAA (19 May 2010). On July 21, the court decided to uphold the legality of the RTL punishments, according to CAA (3 August 2010). Gao and Liu filed a second lawsuit, and the court refused to hear it on August 2. Gao and Liu are reportedly serving RTL in the Henan No. 3 RTL Center in Xuchang city. Sources do not indicate why Gao filed the lawsuits in Xuchang city, rather than in Shangqiu prefecture, against the Shangqiu Municipal RTL Committee.

Liao said he was taken to a police station and questioned by state security agents for four hours. He said that officials are keeping him under house arrest but have provided no legal basis for the move. Liao said officials have prevented him from leaving China 13 times. In February, Liao wrote a letter to the German chancellor about his inability to attend the 2009 Frankfurt Book Fair. Chinese officials have banned most of Liao’s writings, some of which have been published outside of China. The book Corpse Walker tells the story of China’s economic rise from the point of view of those left behind. He served four years in prison from 1990 to 1994 for a poem he wrote and recorded about the 1989 Tiananmen protests and titled “Massacre.”

Before Luo’s arrest, he was assisting Yang’s family to seek justice in Beijing; Yang’s family had rejected the local authorities’ conclusion that he committed suicide by jumping out of a building in November 2009.

The songs included themes such as nostalgia for the Dalai Lama and sorrow over the deaths of Tibetan protestors killed during protests in 2008. Police detained 6 persons (5 named) for allegedly distributing free of charge about 5,000 VCDs: Gyebo (an abbot), Gowang, and Tashi Nyima of Tsakho Monastery; Markyi and another monk of Khakhor Monastery; and a layman named Garab Dorje.

According to Times Online and ICT reports, on December 3, 2009, security officials in Xining city, the capital of Qinghai province, detained singer Tashi Dondrub at gunpoint in a restaurant. In October (ICT), Tashi Dondrub, a member of a performing arts troupe in Yulgan (Henan) Mongol Autonomous County, Huangnan (Malho) TAP, Qinghai, published a CD titled Torture Without Words containing songs expressing nostalgia for the Dalai Lama and pain over the situation following the March 2008 Tibetan protests and rioting. Officials accused him of composing “subversive” lyrics and banned the album but the 5,000-CD release had sold out (TL). Tashi Dondrub reportedly was also beaten and detained in November 2008 in connection with another song focused on the Dalai Lama (ICT). RFA reported in March 2010 that on January 5, 2010, the Henan RTL Committee ordered Tashi Dondrub to serve 15 months’ RTL for singing songs with “provocative themes.” No information is available on his place of imprisonment.

When Zhao refused to leave with police because the summons did not provide a reason for the detention, police filled in “creating a disturbance,” a crime under Article 293 of the Criminal Law. Police took two computers, a camera, video recorder, and other items from his home. CHRD reported that Zhao was formally arrested on December 17. Zhao’s son became sick after drinking melamine-tainted milk powder, in a scandal that broke open in 2008, affecting thousands of children. He organized a support group for parents online. He also set up a Web site for the organization, called “Home for Kidney Stone Babies.” Zhao’s lawyer, Li Fangping, said the current charges are related to his protest, including a press conference, over the tainted milk.

On July 23, 2010, the Urumqi Intermediate People's Court sentenced him to 15 years' imprisonment for endangering state security. Sources close to Gheyret Niyaz have connected his case to interviews he gave to overseas media surrounding a suppressed demonstration and rioting in Urumqi in early July. In court, authorities cited online essays by Gheyret Niyaz which were critical of government policy in Xinjiang. Until June, Gheyret Niyaz had worked as an editor and manager for the Web site Uyghur Online, which came under official scrutiny as authorities accused the Web site of contributing to incitement of rioting in July. Gheyret Niyaz also had worked for the Xinjiang Economic Daily and Xinjiang Legal Daily. He was last known to be held at the Tianshan district PSB detention center in Urumqi.

According to a January 4, 2010, Leshan City Shizhong District People's Procuratorate Indictment (4 January 10, via HRIC), public security officers in Jinniu district, Chengdu city, Sichuan province, placed activist Zeng Li under residential surveillance on February 24, 2009, on suspicion of "gathering a crowd to disturb social order." According to HRIC (28 September 10), on February 23, 2009, Zeng, Liu Jiwei, Bao Junsheng,and others staged a protest over "unanswered petitions" outside of Chengdu Intermediate People's Court. On August 24, 2009, public security officers in Jinniu district terminated Zeng's residential surveillance. On September 27, 2009, the Shizhong District People's Procuratorate in Leshan, Sichuan province, ordered him to obtain a guarantor pending trial. According to HRIC (28 September 10) and RFA (28 September 10), the Shizhong District People’s Court in Leshan sentenced Zeng on September 28, 2010, to two years and six months' imprisonment for "gathering a crowd to disturb social order," a crime under Article 290(1) of the Criminal Law. The location at which he is currently serving his sentence is not known. Based on a Minghui Net (Clearwisdom) report (5 August 10), domestic security protection officers in Xiong county, Hebei province detained Falun Gong practitioner Zhao Wuhu on September 28, 2009, claiming they were checking his residency status. The report alleged that officials forced Zhao to confess to a crime by subjecting him to physical abuse, including sleep deprivation and death threats. The report did not state the crime Zhao is alleged to have committed. A court in Xiong County held his trial in April 2010. The court held another hearing on June 1, 2010, and requested that Zhao provide evidence of the forced confession. Another report by Clear Harmony (17 October 09) said that officials previously detained Zhao during the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics in July 2008. At that time, authorities were attempting to detain Zhao's mother, also a Falun Gong practitioner, when they detained Zhao. The report did not specify the charges against Zhao or the length of his detention. The report said Zhao escaped from custody. Zhao is a government worker in Anxin county, Hebei. He is reportedly being held at the Xiong County Detention Center.

Both men are brothers of Karma Samdrub. On November 13 the Changdu Reeducation Through Labor Committee ordered Chime Namgyal to serve 21 months' RTL for accusations including "harming national security" by illegally gathering information and video material on the local environment. After postponing Rinchen Samdrub's scheduled June 23 trial (AP via Yahoo, 21 June 10), the Changdu (Chamdo) Intermediate People's Court sentenced him on July 3 to five years in prison for "inciting splittism," according to a Reuters report citing his lawyer, Xia Jun.

Sources connected the cases to the Web sites not deleting postings about hardships in Xinjiang and, in one instance, permitting the posting of announcements for a demonstration in Urumqi in July 2009. Unidentified men in Urumqi 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 Websites--Nureli, Selkin administrator Muhemmet, Diyarim worker Obulqasim, and Diyarim contributors Xeyrinisa, Xalnur, and Erkin--also were detained during the same periods.

Based on Phayul (29 September 10, 12 April 10) and Tibet Express (29 September 10) reports, on August 25, 2009, security officials in Aba (Ngaba) county, Aba T&QAP, Sichuan province, detained Kirti Monastery monk Choedar, Donkho Gyagpa, and Donkho’s wife, Solha or Sodol (possibly Sonam Lhamo, Sonam Drolma). Officials reportedly deemed Choedar a leader of a large-scale protest in the Aba county seat in March 2008 and issued a warrant for his detention. (Kirti monks and other Tibetans staged an initially peaceful protest on March 16, 2008, that China Daily (26 March 08) reported became a riot resulting in property destruction.) Available reports have not attributed violent activity to Choedar. Police accused Donkho and Solha of sheltering Choedar and helping him evade capture until August 2009. Police released Solha after approximately five months. On April 9, 2010, the Aba Intermediate People's Court sentenced Choedar to 13 years in prison. On September 25, 2010, the same court sentenced Donkho to 5 years in prison for sheltering Choedar (probably Criminal Law, Art. 310). Information is not available on the criminal charge(s) against Donkho or either man's place of imprisonment.

According to RFA (27 Aug 09), authorities in Xi'an city, Shaanxi province, went to the home of labor organizer Zhao Dongmin on August 19, 2009, and took him to the city's Xincheng district PSB station, where he was held in criminal detention for "gathering a crowd to disrupt social order." Reportedly, Zhao formed a study group in April 2009 consisting of about 20 labor activists to represent the interests of about 300 workers from area enterprises. Zhao then applied to the Shaanxi provincial trade union and the Shaanxi provincial party to have his group officially registered. He also went to Beijing and submitted a letter making the same request to the AllChina Federation of Trade Unions. In September 2010, another RFA report (8 September 10) indicated that Zhao was still in custody, though his exact location is not known, and reported that his lawyer was not allowed to "read the evidence or to visit" Zhao. Authorities also refused to release Zhao to visit his wife during her illness; she died on August 31, 2010.

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 are serving their sentences and charges, if any, against the other Web site workers, is unknown.

According to a September 16, 2010, Tibet Post report, on August 2, 2009, public security officials detained monk Wangdu Gyatso as he staged a solo protest in the capital of Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region. He called for Tibetan independence and the Dalai Lama's return, the report said. On September 8, 2010, the Changdu Intermediate People's Court reportedly sentenced him to 13 years in prison on an unidentified criminal charge (probably "inciting splittism," Criminal Law, Art. 103). Authorities did not provide Wangdu Gyatso's family any information about his location or status during the 13-month period between his detention and sentencing. Information is not available on his place of imprisonment. Wangdu Gyatso hails from Gongjue (Gonjo) county, Changdu prefecture, became a monk as a boy at "Gara Monastery" (location unknown), and studied Buddhist philosophy at "Palyul Monastery" (or Palyul Namgyal Jangchubling), located in the seat of Baiyu (Palyul) county, Ganzi (Kardze) TAP, Sichuan province, for several years prior to his imprisonment, according to the report.

In July, authorities placed the founder of Uyghur Online, Ilham Tohti, in home confinement after a Xinjiang official said the Web site contributed to incitement of rioting in Urumqi, Xinjiang, on July 5. After being released from home confinement, Ilham Tohti reported that the whereabouts of some other staff at Uyghur Online, including Muhemmetjan Abdulla, were unknown. According to Ilham Tohti, Muhemmetjan Abdulla's disappearance may be connected to a personal blog he maintained. Ilham Tohti surmised that someone may have posted an announcement on the blog calling people to demonstrate on July 5. Further details about Muhemmetjan Abdulla's case are not known.

Beijing Shi According to Chinese Human Rights Defenders (CHRD) and the China Human (prov.) Rights Lawyers Concern Group (CHRLCG), seven domestic security protection officers from the Beijing Public Security Bureau (PSB) took legal scholar and cofounder of Open Constitution Initiative (OCI) Xu Zhiyong into custody on July 29, 2009. On August 13, while Xu in custody at the Beijing No. 1 Detention Center, he was arrested for tax evasion. On August 14, Xu had his first meeting with lawyers Zhou Ze and Li Fangping. Xu's detention came shortly after authorities forced the closure of OCI (Gongmeng), a legal research and assistance organization that promoted rule of law and human rights, purportedly for alleged tax problems. On July 17, the Beijing Bureau of Civil Affairs raided the OCI office and declared it an "illegal" organization. Police have also taken OCI's chief financial officer, Zhuang Lu, into custody. Xu was released on bail on August 23, 2009.

List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

Yonten Gyatso, about 40 years old and a native of Dege county, Ganzi (Kardze) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan province, ran along the track in the Changdu sports stadium as he displayed and distributed leaflets calling on Tibetans to “protest for the cause of Tibet,” according to an RFA source. The leaflets provided Yonten Gyatso’s name. Tibetans who had gathered in the stadium cheered him on, and when “a convoy of police vehicles rushed to the scene with sirens blaring,” a “melee” ensued and Yonten Gyatso escaped. Security officials detained him on July 21. No details are available about Yonten Gyatso’s place of detention or criminal charges, if any, against him.

According to Amnesty International, the Uyghur American Association, and Radio Free Asia, authorities in Urumqi, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, detained Gulmira Imin, a Uyghur Web site administrator and government employee from Urumqi, on July 14, 2009.

The Urumqi Intermediate Court tried and sentenced Gulmira Imin on April 1, 2010, to life imprisonment for “splittism, leaking state secrets and organizing an illegal demonstration,” crimes under Articles 103, 111, and 296 of China’s Criminal Law. Five other defendants, whose names remain unknown, were tried and sentenced on the same day to terms between 15 years and life imprisonment. Gulmira Imin reportedly said at trial that authorities mistreated her in detention and coerced her into signing a document she had not read. Gulmira Imin is currently held in the Xinjiang Women’s Prison (Xinjiang No. 2 Prison) in Urumqi.

Based on TGiE and RFA reports, in late June 2009, public security officials detained at least 30 Tibetans as a result of “disturbances” that developed when police detained 2 township-level Tibetan officials (Gyurme Gonpo and Gyalsten Dorje) for failing to conduct patriotic education effectively at Taglung Monastery, located in Jiangda (Jomda) county, Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, TAR. When Tibetans tried to stop police from detaining the two officials, a “clash” resulted and police detained and beat some Tibetans, allegedly injuring Norlha and Gonpo Dargye. In a related incident, security officials stationed at nearby Kyabje Monastery reportedly detained 7 Tibetans: Tseten (Mutsatsang Tseten), Jampa (Gyaltsentsang Jampa), Bulug, Richung Nyidrag, Samphel Norbu, Tsering, and Gage. The Chamdo Intermediate People’s Court on August 4 sentenced Tseten, Jampa, and Bulug to 2 years in prison.

According to a July 2009 Tibetan government-in-exile report, on June 27, 2009, a confrontation between public security officials and Tibetans occurred when police detained two township-level Tibetan officials whom police allegedly accused of dereliction of duty, a crime under the PRC Criminal Law, for failing to conduct patriotic education in an effective manner at Taglung Monastery, located in a township in Jiangda (Jomda) county, Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, TAR. Officials detained township officials Gyurme Gonpo and Gyaltsen Dorje when they learned that “not a single monk” was at the monastery to participate in patriotic education. When about 20 Tibetans attempted to prevent the security officials from detaining the township officials, a “clash” resulted and police detained and beat some of the Tibetans, allegedly seriously injuring Norlha and Gonpo Dargye. No information is available about the Tibetans’ place of detention, or about charges, if any, against Norlha and Gonpo Dargye.

According to an RTL decision available from HRIC, on July 9, 2009, authorities in the Gannan TAP, Gansu province ordered Sun Xiaodi, an environmental activist, to serve two years of RTL for "illegally providing state secrets overseas" and "rumor mongering." Sun is currently at the Lanzhou Anning District RTL detention center. As reported in a CHRD article, Sun's wife said Sun had recently told the central government and human rights groups that officials in Diebu county had exaggerated evidence of earthquake damage in order to obtain earthquake relief funds. CHRD and HRIC reports also noted Sun's longstanding activities exposing pollution and health risks from a local uranium mine, for which he had been detained on April 28, 2005 while petitioning in Beijing. He was released from detention in Lanzhou Prison on December 27, 2005. Sun was held briefly again in April 2006 for continuing to petition. Sun's request for administrative reconsideration was denied in late 2009, said CHRD.

According to Human Rights in China and South China Morning Post, public security officials in Beijing arrested Lin Dagang on June 11, 2009, for possessing state secrets. Authorities based the arrest on a document from the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development that he had downloaded from the Internet in 2007. The document concerned a property matter that Lin followed as organizer of a group that has sought the return of property the government took in 1956. The group had been active since the 1970s, and Lin had been petitioning for about 10 years. The Jiaojiang District People's Court tried Lin in a closed trial on November 6, 2009, and sentenced him to two years for possession of state secrets. The location at which he is currently held is not known.

According to a TGiE report (6 October 09), on June 7, 2009 (the 15th day of the 4th Tibetan lunar month, Saga Dawa, Tibetan Buddhism's most sacred day), security officials in Lhasa city, TAR, detained an unknown number of Tibetans as they conducted a religious incense offering. Many of the Tibetans were released but "Soetop"(Sotob, probably Sonam Tobgyal), a Tibetan from Jiangda (Jomda) county, Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, TAR, who owned a shop in Lhasa, remained detained. According to a Tibet Express report (13 May 10), on December 29, 2009, an unnamed court (probably in Lhasa) sentenced "several" Tibetans to imprisonment as a result of the religious offering. The report named four men, including "Sotop," and provided sentence lengths: "Sotop," 7 years; Sonam Ngodrub, or Sonam, detained June 9, 2009, 5 years; "Ngado," probably Ngawang Dorje, 6 years; and "Tendo," possibly Tenzin Dorje, 5 years. Officials accused Sonam and some other detainees of leading "separatist activities," the Tibet Express report said. RFA (10 June 09) and Phayul (11 June 09) reported that on June 7 about 200 Tibetans gathered before Lhasa's Potala Palace (the Dalai Lama’s former residence) to offer incense. According to international Falun Gong sources, public security officials in Tancheng county, Linyi municipality, Shandong province detained Sun Dejian, and his wife, Zhang Binglan in June 2009 on account that their 16-year-old daughter had distributed Falun Gong leaflets at her middle school. Authorities reportedly held Sun’s daughter for a month at an extralegal detention center for Falun Gong practitioners. The Tancheng County People’s Court tried Sun and his wife on November 11, 2009 and convicted them in January 2010 of “using a cult organization to undermine the implementation of the law” (Criminal Law, Art. 300). The court sentenced Sun’s wife to 8 years and 6 months in prison and gave Sun a 3 year sentence, suspended for 5 years. The family’s attorneys, Cheng Hai and Li Jinglin, argued that prosecutors failed to establish guilt of illegal activity. Authorities released Sun on probation, while Zhang, who has appealed her case, is being held at the Linyi PSB Detention Center.

According to a TGiE report (6 October 09), on June 7, 2009 (the 15th day of the 4th Tibetan lunar month, Saga Dawa, Tibetan Buddhism's most sacred day), security officials in Lhasa city, TAR, detained an unknown number of Tibetans as they conducted a religious incense offering. Many of the Tibetans were released but "Soetop"(Sotob, probably Sonam Tobgyal), a Tibetan from Jiangda (Jomda) county, Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, TAR, who owned a shop in Lhasa, remained detained. According to a Tibet Express report (13 May 10), on December 29, 2009, an unnamed court (probably in Lhasa) sentenced "several" Tibetans to imprisonment as a result of the religious offering. The report named four men, including "Sotop," and provided sentence lengths: "Sotop," 7 years; Sonam Ngodrub, or Sonam, detained June 9, 2009, 5 years; "Ngado," probably Ngawang Dorje, 6 years; and "Tendo," possibly Tenzin Dorje, 5 years. Officials accused Sonam and some other detainees of leading "separatist activities," the Tibet Express report said.

The current charges against him are unclear. He recently helped organize a group called Citizens’ Association for Government Oversight. Li also signed Charter 08, a document released in December 2008 and signed by thousands of Chinese citizens. Charter 08 calls for political reforms and greater human rights in China. On June 3, 2008, police in Sichuan detained Li on charges of “Internet fraud.” He had designed T-shirts blaming poor construction for the large number of casualties in the May 2008 Sichuan earthquake. Two days later, he was transferred to Changsha, where he was detained for one month. He was released but kept under residential surveillance until September 18. He is reportedly a member of the Pan Blue Alliance, a group that declares allegiance to Sun Yat-sen.

According to Human Rights in China and Chinese Human Rights Defenders, police in Taizhou city, Zhejiang province, took freelance writer Wu Gaoxing from his home and seized his computer on May 30, 2009. Wu’s detention came about an hour after an open letter he and five others signed was made public and days before the 20th anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen protests. The letter, addressed to President Hu Jintao and other Chinese leaders, sought economic redress for those imprisoned in the protests. In 1989, officials sentenced Wu, then a teacher, to two years in prison for leading student protests in Zhejiang. The open letter said ex-prisoners had no regular jobs, pensions, or medical insurance. Wu had also joined thousands of Chinese citizens in signing Charter 08, a document calling for human rights and political reforms. The charges against Wu are not known and police reportedly provided no documents for Wu’s detention. CHRD reported on June 11 that Wu was still detained in Zhejiang.

Shaoguan domestic security officers reportedly secretly apprehended Luo while he was vacationing in Chengdu city, Sichuan province on May 20, 2009. He had also been planning commemorations of the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen protests. Luo previously served three years of RTL from 2001 to 2004 for “opposing the Party and socialism.” He is being held at the Shaoguan RTL Center.

Officials as the Xiahe detention center told the monks’ family members that police were questioning the monks about the 2008 protests and that the monks would be released soon. Authorities did not release them, however, and family members could not confirm the monks’ location or detention status. On March 14 and 15, 2008, hundreds of monks of Labrang Tashikhyil Monastery led protest demonstrations that a large number of ordinary Tibetans joined, according to TCHRD, TibetInfoNet, and China Digital Times reports.

List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

Public security bureau officers in Bao'an district, Shenzhen municipality, Guangdong province, detained Xue on May 9, 2009 and he was formally arrested on June 15. Authorities claimed Xue had joined the overseas China Democracy Party in 2009 and had recruited other individuals. In addition, authorities alleged that in the summer of 2006, Xue had planned to organize a "China Democratic Workers' Party" online. The first session of Xue's trial opened on September 10, 2009 and a second session took place on December 14. According to his mother, court authorities did not acknowledge medical records from 2006 showing that Xue had a mental illness. The court accepted two court-ordered psychological evaluations conducted after his detention alleging Xue had no mental illness during the period when the crime was committed. Xue expressed an intention to appeal the judgment, but information on the status of an appeal, if any, is unknown.

Based on Phayul and RFA reports, on January 10, 2009, about 300 Tibetans, including monks from Den Choekhor (Den Choekhorling) Monastery, staged a protest in Dengke (Denkhog) township, Jiangda (Jomda) county, Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, TAR, against authorities sending a dance troupe to Lhasa to celebrate “Serfs Emancipation Day” on March 28. According to an April 2009 TGiE report, on April 1 public security officials in Dengke township detained a number of Denma Choekhor monks suspected of involvement in the January protest. Two of the monks detained on April 1 were Tseten Sonam and former abbot Sonam Geleg. No information is available about charges, if any, against them or their place of detention. TCHRD reported in May 2009 that six Denma Choekhor monks were sentenced to imprisonment for alleged involvement in a January bombing in Dengke, but no information is available linking Tseten Sonam and Sonam Geleg to the bombing.

According to April 2009 Phayul and Tibetan government-in-exile reports, on April 1, 2009, public security officials in Ganzi (Kardze) county, Ganzi TAP, Sichuan province, “ransacked” Tsitsang Monastery, located in Ganzi county, and then detained five Tsitsang Monastery monks. The reports identified one of the five monks, Sonam Nyima, and described him as a 40 year-old with an administrative position at the monastery. Information about the reason for the detentions is not available; the Phayul report characterized them as “arbitrary.” RFA and TCHRD reported the detention on March 19 of another Tsitsang monk as well as other local residents for alleged involvement in a local “farming boycott movement.” It is unclear if the detention of the five Tsitsang monks, including Sonam Nyima, on April 1 is related to the previous detentions or the boycott. No information is available about Sonam Nyima’s place of detention.

The Chengdu Intermediate People's Court in Sichuan province sentenced writer and environmental activist Tan Zuoren to five years in prison and an additional three years’ deprivation of political rights on February 9, 2010, for “inciting subversion of state power.” The court reportedly convicted Tan for attempting to organize activities to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the June 1989 Tiananmen protests. The court said Tan posted articles on the Internet about the 20th anniversary and had contact with “hostile foreign forces” such as Tiananmen exile and student leader Wang Dan. Tan had been active in calling for the government to investigate the cause of the large number of school collapses in the May 2008 Sichuan earthquake. He began his own investigation and had published preliminary results before his detention in March 2009. The conduct of his trial on August 12, 2009, reportedly was marred by official abuses and procedural violations.

According to TCHRD and TGiE reports, on March 10, 2009, police in Lajia (Ragya) township, Maqin (Machen) county, Guoluo (Golog) TAP, Qinghai province, detained Ragya Monastery monk Tashi Zangpo. On the same day Ragya monks had displayed a Tibetan flag on the monastery roof and police may have suspected Tashi Zangpo of having a flag in his room. Police allegedly subjected him to beating and torture under interrogation until March 21, when he escaped and jumped into the Huang (Machu) River to commit suicide. Hundreds of Ragya monks and other Tibetans angry about the death stormed the police station in what Xinhua called an “attack” that resulted in injuries to officials, and what TCHRD called a protest. Security officials detained 93 monks and 2 other persons, Xinhua said. TGiE reported that police detained Palden Gyatso on March 22. Phayul reported that police also detained Gyaltsen, but did not specify the date. Information is not available about his place of detention.

List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

According to Chinese Human Rights Defenders (CHRD), public security officers in Chengdu detained rights activist Zeng Rongkang on March 20, 2009, for allegedly “gathering crowds to disturb social order.” His detention related to a February 23, 2009 protest at the Chengdu Intermediate People’s Court, in which many aggrieved citizens demonstrated, demanding justice. According to CHRD, Zeng has engaged in citizens’ rights defense work for a long time. At least four other individuals -Huang Xiaomin, Xing Qingxian, Lu Dajun and Yan Wenhan -- were arrested for “disturbing social order” following the February 23 protest. CHRD further reported that the police told Zeng that they considered him the primary culprit in the February 23 protest and would therefore deal with him harshly. Authorities formally arrested him on April 1, and he is currently being held at the Chengdu Municipal Detention Center. He will reportedly be tried sometime in mid-February 2010.

According to a March 15, 2009, Radio Free Asia (RFA) report, on March 11-12 and March 14-15, Tibetan “youths” staged small, peaceful political protests in the seat of Ganzi (Kardze) county, Ganzi TAP, Sichuan province. Security forces maintained a “massive” security presence at the time due to a series of sensitive dates (e.g. March 10 and March 28). On March 11, three teenage females, two of whom RFA identified as Choetso (age 16) and Tsering Wangmo (17), scattered leaflets and shouted slogans calling for Tibetan independence and the Dalai Lama’s return to Tibet. Approximately 50 security officials detained the three girls and took them away in a van. Two young Tibetan males, Sonam and Dawa Tsering, staged similar protests in the Ganzi county seat on March 12 and March 14 respectively. The RFA report implied, but did not state, that the boys were detained. Information is not available about the juvenile protesters’ place of detention or whether their families have access to them.

List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

Based on March 2009 FTC and Xinhua reports, on March 3, 2009, public security officials detained monk Jamyang Phuntsog (Xinhua: Jangkor) from Kirti Monastery, near the seat of Aba (Ngaba) county, Aba T&QAP, Sichuan province. On March 5, security officials detained two more Kirti monks, one of whom FTC identified as Gyatso (or Mewa Gyatso). Authorities suspected the monks of distributing leaflets in the county seat saying that four Tibetans would attempt self-immolation on March 10, the 50th anniversary of the 1959 “Tibetan People’s Uprising.” According to March Xinhua reports, Kirti monk Tashi, who attempted to burn himself to death on February 27, was hospitalized and under police investigation, and Kirti monk Jangkor confessed to “spreading rumors” about Tashi’s attempt. Phayul reported in April 2010 that on April 9 the Aba Intermediate People’s Court sentenced Jamyang Phuntsog (“Jangkho”) to six years in prison for “separatist activities” and “links to outside separatist forces.”

According to Chinese Human Rights Defenders, domestic security protection officers detained rights activist Xing Qingxian on February 28, 2009, at Xing’s home in Chengdu, the provincial capital of Sichuan. On March 2, the domestic security protection unit of the Jinniu District Public Security Bureau in Chengdu formally detained Xing on suspicion of disturbing public order. His detention may be related to information he gave to foreign media regarding recent clashes between police and Chengdu residents. One involved a resident resisting a forced demolition; the other involved a protest over court rulings in which residents chained themselves together. In 2003, Xing was fired from a railroad company after joining with workers to seek overtime pay. He has provided legal advice to workers and recently joined a volunteer group in Chengdu called Rights Defense in Action. He is currently being held at the Chengdu PSB Detention Center in Pixian County.

According to Falun Dafa Clearwisdom.net (29 November 09, 15 December 09 English translation), the Kunming Intermediate People's Court in Yunnan province sentenced Falun Gong practitioners Dong Zhikun and Geng Shuhua to three years and one-and-a-half years in prison, respectively. Clearwisdom reported that police detained them on February 28, 2009, for distributing Falun Gong-related DVDs. Panlong District police in Kunming arrested them on March 27. The September trial was reportedly held in secret without prior notice to the families of the defendants. After trial, officials notified the families of the sentences but provided no further information on the verdicts. Dong is serving his sentence at the Yunnan No. 1 Prison. Geng is serving her sentence at the Panlong No. 1 Detention Center. Both are employees at the Yunnan Forestry College. In April 2000, Dong was detained for 15 days for disturbing social order and the college later lowered his salary. In November 2003, college officials attempted to revoke Dong's teaching license. Officials required Dong to get their approval to travel on holidays and to be available for questioning during politically sensitive time periods.

On February 16, 14-15 Tibetans shouting slogans (incl. “No Losar”) began to protest in the Litang market against the detention the previous day of monk Lobsang Lhundrub for staging a solo protest. Lobsang Lhundrub’s brother, Sonam Tenpa, led the February 16 protest carrying a Dalai Lama portrait; brothers Jampa Thogme and Lobsang Tenzin joined in (TCHRD). The protest did not last long but grew to over 300 persons before PAP began beating protesters with rifle butts and batons. A source told the Washington Post that some protesters threw stones. PAP beat the brothers so badly that sources were unsure if they survived (RFA, FTC). Officials took the detainees, including Lobsang Phande, to “Tsaka” detention center 6 km from Litang (FTC).

List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

According to CHRD, police in Kashgar city, XUAR, took retired judge Huang Yunmin into detention on February 10, 2009 after he advocated on behalf of health benefits for army veterans. After interrogation authorities criminally detained Huang. Huang had served as a judge at the Tumuxiuke Court, within the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, and had earlier been in the army in Qinghai province. While in the army, Huang had been involved in nuclear testing. A 2007 government notice mandated that dismissed soldiers who were involved in such activity be given medical tests and benefits for resulting damage to their health. In 2008, Huang led 17 army veterans to the Bureau of Civil Affairs and complained that this notice had not been implemented locally. The bureau recognized that the notice was applicable to Huang’s group, but they have so far received no testing or benefits. Huang is currently being held at Tumuxiuke Detention Center in Bachu county, Kashgar municipality.

According to an April 2010 Phayul report citing a press release issued by a Tibetan organization based in India, on February 7, 2009, public security officials in Aba (Ngaba) Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan province, detained Jigme (or Khomatsang Jigme), a former Kirti Monastery monk. On April 9, 2010, the Aba Intermediate People's Court sentenced Jigme to seven years in prison for "contact with outside separatist forces" and "leaking state secrets." Information is not available about his place of imprisonment. Aba authorities detained Jigme for nearly one year in 1992 for allegedly putting up posters criticizing the government, the Phayul report said. (Article 111 of China’s Criminal Law punishes "unlawfully [supplying] state secrets or intelligence for an organ, organization, or individual" outside of China. "State secrets" can include information that could "damage [China's] state security and interests" in areas that include "politics," according to an April 2010 Xinhua report.)

According to a January 29, 2009, High Peaks Pure Earth (HPPE) report, a source told HPPE that public security officials in Lhasa city, the capital of the TAR, detained Tenzin, a singer who hailed from an area that Tibetans know as Amdo (the northern and northeastern area of the Tibetan plateau, today largely in Qinghai and Gansu provinces). Police accused Tenzin, who owns a Lhasa music shop, of downloading from the Internet “illegal music.” The HPPE article observed that the “illegal” aspect of the music was related to political content, not piracy. A police crackdown on “reactionary” music was underway at the time of, or shortly before, Tashi’s detention. Tibet Daily reported on December 25, 2008, that Lhasa police had detained five persons in December who had “illegally downloaded reactionary songs from the Internet” and sold copies in local shops at an “exorbitant profit.” Information is not available about Tashi’s place of detention or criminal charges, if any, against him.

Hou continued petitioning while serving the period of suspension and left Changsha 6 times without reporting to the PSB. At the request of the Furong PSB, the Furong District People’s Court established a council to reexamine the case and rescinded Hou’s suspension. Because Hou had served 11 months and 16 days in prison prior to the 2007 sentence, her new sentence expires on February 9, 2011.

Tibetans celebrate Monlam shortly after the Tibetan lunar New Year (Losar), but some Tibetans had decided to forego (“boycott”) celebrating Losar in 2009 to express sadness about Tibetans killed and detained in the 2008 protests.

After about 3 minutes, security officials fired a “tranquilizer gun” at him, beat him, and took him away. Confirmation about the type of device that police fired is not available (e.g., whether it may have been a high voltage stun gun.) No information is available about Ngawang Sonam’s place of detention or criminal charges, if any, against him. A PSB official whom RFA reached by phone appeared to recognize his name but did not confirm his detention. RFA’s source said that Ngawang Sonam was detained in 2000 for another political protest.

List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

On December 25, 2009, the Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People’s Court sentenced prominent intellectual Liu Xiaobo to 11 years in prison for inciting subversion. The Beijing High People’s Court denied his appeal on February 11, 2010. Prosecutors said Liu drafted and organized Charter 08, signed by thousands of Chinese and calling for political reform and protection of human rights. Liu was also punished for six essays he wrote that were posted on overseas Web sites. The essays were critical of Chinese Communist Party rule but did not advocate violence; one specifically called for non-violence. Liu was taken into custody on December 8, 2008, a day before Charter 08 was released. He was kept in residential surveillance under conditions that violated Chinese law and arrested on June 23, 2009. Liu was detained in 1989 after the Tiananmen protests and served three years reeducation through labor for his writings in 1996. He is serving his sentence at the Jinzhou Prison in Liaoning province. On October 8, 2010, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded Liu the Nobel Peace Prize for 2010.

Police took him to an unknown location in Lanzhou, Gansu’s capital. Prior to that, PAP detained him on March 21 on suspicion of participating in political protests a week earlier (he hadn’t). Police interrogated, beat, and tortured him over a 2-month period at locations in Xiahe and Linxia city. He was hospitalized twice then released on bail after police forced him to fingerprint a statement saying that he had not been tortured. Jigme Gyatso posted on YouTube a video of himself recounting the experience (reported by VOA on September 3). Jigme Gyatso told AP in a September 13 telephone interview that police accused him of speaking to foreign media and human rights groups and charged him with "illegally providing intelligence" to the groups.

PSB officials closed down the business after Paljor Norbu’s detention and removed a substantial number of wooden printing blocks. (Seizing the printing blocks may suggest that authorities suspected him printing banned religious texts.) Police had not informed Paljor Norbu’s family of his location as of ICT’s report date. An ICT source reported that Paljor Norbu has been imprisoned previously and that he already may have been sentenced to imprisonment. It is unlikely, however, that a case would proceed from detention to sentencing by a court in less than three weeks. The CECC has no record of Paljor Norbu’s prior imprisonment.

On January 7, 2009, the Fuzhou City Taijiang District People’s Court in Fujian province sentenced legal advocate Ji Sizun to three years in prison for “forging official documents and seals.” Ji was reportedly detained in August after attempting to apply for a permit to protest in Beijing at special sites set up for the Olympics. After being turned away by Beijing police on August 9, Ji returned two days later to the same station to file his application and was taken away by plainclothes. Ji had planned to protest corruption and the government’s harassment of petitioners. Before he was detained, Ji had invited journalists to accompany him as he applied for the protest permit and gave an interview to U.S.-based NPR. Fuzhou officials reportedly appointed a lawyer for Ji and rejected a lawyer hired by Ji’s friends. Ji was arrested on September 18, 2008.

According to the 2010 Clear Wisdom report, the Kuiwen District People’s Court sentenced Cao to 10 years in prison on October 19, 2009.

According to China Daily and Radio Free Asia, the Xiaogan Intermediate People’s Court in Hubei province sentenced essayist Du Daobin to three years in prison on June 11, 2004, for inciting subversion. The sentence was suspended for four years. The court found that Du wrote and posted 26 articles on the Internet to incite subversion, and had accepted fund from overseas organizations. Du appealed, and the Hubei High People’s Court upheld the sentence on August 4, 2004. Under Chinese law, the period of a suspended sentence starts from the date the judgment is made final. Du’s wife said the suspended sentence was set to expire on August 3, 2008. On July 21, 2008, police in Yingcheng city, Hubei, detained Du, saying he violated the terms of his suspended sentence by publishing more than 100 articles overseas, leaving his home, and receiving visitors without prior approval. BBC reported that the Xiaogan court reinstated Du’s original sentence. Du is serving his sentence at the Wuhan Prison.

According to a Tibetan government-in-exile report (15 May 10), in mid-2008, officials allegedly from China's "intelligence bureau" (state security bureau) detained Lhamo Kyab, a teacher since 1982, from a primary school in Biru (Driru) county, Naqu (Nagchu) prefecture, TAR. She had begun teaching at the school three days prior to detention. Officials reportedly covered her head, took her to her residence in Nagchu, the prefectural capital, searched her home, then took her to a "secret" detention center in Sangyib, a Tibetan name referring to the general location of the TAR Detention Center, located in Lhasa city. (A November 2009 view of the rebuilt TAR Detention Center is available on Google Earth at these coordinates: 29 41'24.96" N, 91 09'30.37" E.)

According to a Tibetan government-in-exile report, on June 18, 2008, public security officials in Nagchu, the capital of Nagchu prefecture in the TAR, detained four monks from Tarmo Monastery, located in Biru (Driru) county. The monks were Ngawang Gyaltsen (abbot and head of Tarmo’s Democratic Management Committee), Ngawang Jampa, another monastery head, Ngawang Sanggye, and Kalsang Lochog. Police accused the monks, who were en route to Lhasa on monastery business, of leaving Tarmo without permission. According to the report, Ngawang Gyaltsen previously had confronted officials conducting patriotic education at Tarmo after the March 2008 Tibetan protests, refused to denounce the Dalai Lama, and said that the Dalai Lama should return to Tibet. Officials opted at the time not to detain Ngawang Gyaltsen from among the monastery’s monks, but warned that they would take action later. No information is available about the monks’ place of detention or criminal charges, if any, against them.

The court refused to provide a copy of the verdict and indicated only that the state secrets were city government documents. Huang’s lawyer said the documents were publicly available. Huang had visited the Sichuan earthquake zone and wrote about collapsed schools and posted parents’ appeals on his human rights Web site. He was detained shortly thereafter on June 10, 2008, and arrested on July 18. The court held his closed trial on August 5. Authorities reportedly kidnapped a person to prevent him from testifying for Huang. Huang suffers from numerous medical conditions, including tumors in his abdomen and hepatitis B, but authorities reportedly have refused to treat him. His appeal was denied on February 8, 2010. He is serving his sentence at the Chuandong Prison in Sichuan.

According to Chinese Human Rights Defenders, on June 2, 2008, educational authorities in Douhe township, Xiantao city, Hubei province, detained Xu Zexin, a teacher’s representative at Douhe No. 2 Middle School. Xu is reportedly held in an unknown detention facility in Douhe. Since 2007, Xu has led local teachers in demanding higher wages. After he submitted a petition in March signed by 1,000 teachers, Xu reported being followed by school board officials. Between May and June, Xu represented the teachers in filing lawsuits against the local government, but the courts refused to accept the case. After visiting the Hubei Provincial High People’s Court on June 1, Xu was taken to an “education class” by Douhe educational authorities, under the pretext of “discussing the issue.” Douhe educational officials told Xu’s family that his detention was ordered by the Xiantao city Party secretary.

According to Radio Free Asia (13 September 10), public security officers in Weihai city, Shandong province, detained Uyghur trader Ghojaexmet Niyaz in May 2008 during a security sweep in advance of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, on the grounds that he did not have an identification card. Ghojaexmet Niyaz had just come to the city with his family for work, and authorities returned him to his home in Yining (Ghulja) city, Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The Ghulja Intermediate People's Court tried him in fall 2008 and sentenced him to six years in prison. The charges against him are not known, but a source close to the case said he had committed no other misdeed than not having an ID and connected the sentence to Ghojaexmet Niyaz's refusal to shave his beard and mustache. Ghojaexmet Niyaz is currently held at a prison in the Yanqi Hui Autonomous County in the Bayangol Mongol Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang.

The court cited as evidence Yuan’s distribution of an antiCommunist Party article to petitioners in Beijing, interviews with the overseas Epoch Times criticizing the Party, funds he received from domestic and overseas organizations, and articles “attacking” socialism. Since 1998, Yuan provided legal aid in Jixi to farmers, miners, and displaced workers. Yuan reportedly helped land rights activist Yang Chunlin with a “We Want Human Rights, Not the Olympics” petition. Yuan was apprehended in Beijing on May 24, 2008 and his lawyers allege he was tortured and coerced to confess. He was detained on May 29, arrested on June 30, and his trial was on January 12, 2009.

Based on a TCHRD report, on the night of May 19, 2008, public security officials and People’s Armed Police arrived at Shelkar Choede Monastery, located at Shelkar, the seat of Dingri county, Shigatse (Rikaze) prefecture, TAR.

Earlier that day, the 12 monks had engaged in a heated argument with officials who arrived at the monastery to begin a patriotic education program. Khyenrab Tharchin, a member of the monastery’s Democratic Management Committee (DMC) stood during the first session, objected to the program, and stated that he would not denounce the Dalai Lama as required. Eleven additional monks stood and expressed support for Khyenrab Tharchin. Information about the monks’ place of detention and the charges, if any, against them is not available.

List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

ethnic/relig Tibetan Phurbu

Based on TCHRD and ICT reports, on May 14, 2008, at least 50 Pangri Nunnery nuns staged a protest march to government offices in Ganzi (Kardze) county, Ganzi TAP, Sichuan province. The nuns, angered by patriotic education and demands to denounce the Dalai Lama, called for Tibetan independence and the Dalai Lama’s return. PSB and PAP detained the nuns, beating some. On May 18, officials detained Pangri’s head and founder, Phurbu Tsering Rinpoche, considered a reincarnated Tibetan Buddhist teacher. NYT reported the Ganzi Intermediate People’s Court put Phurbu Tsering on trial on April 21, 2009, for illegal weapons possession and embezzlement, charges lawyer Jiang Tianyong said were baseless and “politically motivated.” Lawyer Li Fanping told AP in April that a pistol and cartridges allegedly found under Phurbu Tsering’s bed weren’t sourced or checked for finger prints. The court sentenced Phurbu Tsering on December 23, 2009, to 8 years and 6 months in prison, TCHRD and BBC reported.

Chongqing According to CHRD, the Chongqing No. 1 Intermediate People’s Court sentenced Shi (prov.) Pan Blue Alliance member Zhang Qi on July 7, 2009, to four years in prison for “inciting subversion of state power.” The court cited four essays Zhang posted on the alliance’s Web site that it said attacked socialism and the people’s democratic dictatorship. The essays had been posted on “reactionary” overseas Web sites and had been read or commented on by more than 2,500 people. The court also cited Zhang saying he published the essays because he believed China should transform politically and have a multi-party system. The court did not provide any evidence that Zhang advocated violence. In his defense, Zhang claimed he was exercising his right to free speech. Officials detained Zhang on May 16, 2008, and formally arrested him on June 20. The alliance is an “illegal” organization, which opposes the communist system and supports Sun Yat-sen’s Three Principles and working with the KMT Party of Taiwan.

The detentions resulted from arguments between monks and members of patriotic education work teams at Oezer Monastery and Khenpa Lungpa Monastery, located in Garthog. Monks at the monasteries refused to sign official documents or to write essays denouncing the Dalai Lama. As a result, authorities detained 10 Khenpa Lungpa Monastery monks on May 12: Butrug, Jamdrub, Jamyang Lodroe, Kalsang Tashi, Lodroe, Namgyal, Pasang Tashi, Tenpa Gyaltsen, Tsepag Namgyal, and Wangchuk.

Based on a TCHRD report, on May 12-14, 2008, officials detained a total of 16 monks and 2 laypersons in Garthog township, located in Mangkang (Markham) county, Changdu (Chamdo) prefecture, TAR. The detentions resulted from arguments between monks and members of patriotic education work teams at Oezer Monastery and Khenpa Lungpa Monastery, located in Garthog. Monks at the monasteries refused to sign official documents or to write essays denouncing the Dalai Lama. As a result, authorities detained 10 Khenpa Lungpa Monastery monks on May 12: Butrug, Jamdrub, Jamyang Lodroe, Kalsang Tashi, Lodroe, Namgyal, Pasang Tashi, Tenpa Gyaltsen, Tsepag Namgyal, and Wangchuk. Authorities detained six Oezer Monastery monks on May 13: Ngawang Tenzin, Tenphel, Rigyang, Choegyal, Lobsang Gyatso, and Tsangpa. The two laymen, Dargye Garwatsang and Konchog Tenzin, were detained on May 14. No information about their place of detention or charges, if any, against them is available.

According to a TCHRD report, on the morning of May 14, 2008, “scores” of nuns from Gaden Choeling Nunnery, located near the seat of Ganzi (Kardze) county, Ganzi TAP, Sichuan province, attempted a protest march to the county seat. PAP and PSB officials blocked them at a bridge on the town’s outskirts. Nuns Dorje Khadro, Pema Lhamo, and Tagdron breached the security barrier and at approximately 9:00 AM began to protest and shout slogans near the county government offices. Security officials beat and detained the nuns. The TGiE reported that Gaden Choeling nuns Yeshe Choetso, Gyalga Lhamo, Deyang, and Choetso staged another protest near the government offices at 4:00 PM the same day. Security officials detained them. In January 2009 the Ganzi Intermediate People’s Court sentenced Pema Lhamo to 3 years in prison, TCHRD reported in February. Officials may have transferred her to a prison near Chengdu city. Details are not available about the charges and legal proceedings against Pema Lhamo.

According to TCHRD and ICT, on May 14, 2008, more than 50 nuns of Pangri Nunnery, located in Ganzi (Kardze) county, Ganzi TAP, Sichuan province, set out on a protest march from the nunnery to the county government offices, about 2 km away. They shouted slogans calling for Tibetan independence, the Dalai Lama’s return to Tibet, and the Dalai Lama’s long life. PSB and PAP personnel detained the nuns en route and beat some nuns severely. On May 18, officials detained Phurbu Tsering, the Tibetan reincarnated teacher who headed the nunnery. Aggressive patriotic education campaigns and demands by officials that the nuns denounce the Dalai Lama had angered the nuns, as well as (according to TCHRD) government claims that the Dalai Lama “masterminded” the Tibetan protests following March 10. No details are available about the detainees’ site of detention or criminal charges (if any) against them. Soku was one of the nuns detained.

According to a TCHRD report, on the morning of May 14, 2008, “scores” of nuns from Gaden Choeling Nunnery, located near the seat of Ganzi (Kardze) county, Ganzi TAP, Sichuan province, attempted to stage a protest march from the nunnery to the county seat. A large number (300, according to TCHRD) of PAP and public security officials blocked the nuns at a bridge on the town’s outskirts and prevented them from proceeding farther. Nuns Dorje Khadro, Pema Lhamo, and Tagdron, however, breached the security barrier and at approximately 9:00 AM they began to protest and shout slogans near the county government offices. Within minutes security officials beat and detained the three nuns. The Tibetan government-in-exile reported that another group of Gaden Choeling nuns protested near the government office at 4:00 PM on the same day: Yeshe Choetso (or Yiga), Gyalga Lhamo, Deyang, and Choetso. No information is available about the nuns’ place of detention or criminal charges, if any, against them.

According to TCHRD and ICT, on May 14, 2008, more than 50 nuns of Pangri Nunnery, located in Ganzi (Kardze) county, Ganzi TAP, Sichuan province, set out on a protest march from the nunnery to the county government offices, about 2 km away. They shouted slogans calling for Tibetan independence, the Dalai Lama’s return to Tibet, and the Dalai Lama’s long life. PSB and PAP personnel detained the nuns en route and beat some nuns severely. On May 18, officials detained Phurbu Tsering, the Tibetan reincarnated teacher who headed the nunnery. Aggressive patriotic education campaigns and demands by officials that the nuns denounce the Dalai Lama had angered the nuns, as well as (according to TCHRD) government claims that the Dalai Lama “masterminded” the Tibetan protests following March 10. No details are available about the detainees’ site of detention or criminal charges (if any) against them. Yudron Lhamo was one of the nuns detained.

The detentions resulted from arguments between monks and members of patriotic education work teams at Oezer Monastery and Khenpa Lungpa Monastery, located in Garthog. Monks at the monasteries refused to sign official documents or to write essays denouncing the Dalai Lama. As a result, authorities detained 10 Khenpa Lungpa Monastery monks on May 12: Butrug, Jamdrub, Jamyang Lodroe, Kalsang Tashi, Lodroe, Namgyal, Pasang Tashi, Tenpa Gyaltsen, Tsepag Namgyal, and Wangchuk.

According to Radio Free Asia (RFA), on May 13, 2008, public security officials in the seat of Ganzi (Kardze) county, Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan province, detained three monks of Kardze Gepheling Monastery when they staged a brief protest around 9:30 or 10:00 AM. Sources told RFA that the monks, Lobsang Tenpa, Palden Tsondru (or Tsultrim), and Lobsang Choeden, handed out leaflets and shouted slogans calling for the Dalai Lama’s long life until police detained them. The sources did not report that the police beat the monks. A January 2009 Phayul report named the monks as Lobsang Tenpa, Palden Tsultrim, and Lobsang Choegyan, and said that authorities had sentenced them to prison terms of four years, four years, and five years respectively and transferred them to a prison in “Monyak” (possibly Mianyang) near Chengdu city. The Phayul report provided no information about the criminal charges or legal proceedings against the monks.

List does not include all Tibetan detentions on or after March 10, 2008, or all Uyghur detentions on or after July 5, 2009.

The report did not provide a date of detention for the detainees, some of whom may be monks based on their names. Most of the 2008 political detentions in the TAR recorded in the CECC Political Prisoner Database took place during March through May. Information is not available about the six Tibetans’ place of detention or criminal charges, if any, against them.

Authorities reportedly tortured her after detaining her. Norzin Wangmo, the mother of two children, lived in Heishui (Trochu) county, located in Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan province, where she worked for the Heishui Judicial Bureau.

Reports did not link Tenchoe to violent activity in Lhasa on March 14. Authorities formally arrested him on April 13, 2008. The Lhasa Intermediate People's Court sentenced him on September 25, 2008, to 15 years in prison. Information is not available on the criminal charge(s) against him. Officials transferred him to Qushui (Chushur) Prison to serve hard labor. Authorities may have treated Tenchoe's case as more "serious" because his father "participated in political activities" in Lhasa until he fled to India in 1993 (TCHRD, Guchusum). Tenchoe attended a school in India run by Tibetans in exile and returned to Lhasa in 2003 at age 16. In the TAR he worked for the "Panam Integrated Rural Development Project," set up under "an agreement between the European Union and the Chinese Ministry of Commerce" (TCHRD).

Based on an October 2009 TGiE report, in March or April 2008, security officials in Mozhugongka (Maldrogongkar) county, Lhasa municipality, TAR, detained at least 11 Pangsa Monastery monks in connection with “the March [2008] protests” (a general reference to the March-April period of Tibetan protests). Pangsa is located in Mozhugongka. China Digital Times (CDT) reported in late April 2008 that officials detained “several dozen” Tibetans after Pangsa monks and others protested against patriotic education and shouted slogans. ICT reported in August 2008 that Pangsa monks were involved in March 16 and April 12 protests that resulted in detentions. Security forces injured protesters, CDT and ICT said. TGiE named 11 Pangsa monks: Abbot Thubten Lungrig, Nyima Tenzin, Lobsang Tendar, Pema, Lhaga Tsering, Tenpa Trinle, Lhagpa, Kangtsug, Thubten Nyima, Gyatso, and Kalsang. The monks remained missing in October 2009, TGiE said. No information is available about charges or place of detention.

According to a December 2009 Phayul report citing a Tibetan from Naqu (Nagchu) prefecture, TAR, who lives in exile in India, the families of six Tibetans whom public security officials in Suo (Sog) county, Naqu prefecture, detained “in connection with” the 2008 Tibetan protests have not received any news about the outcome of the detentions. The families of Tenzin Sherab (age 15), Ngawang Lodroe (17), Tsultrim Tendar (21), Chambu Drudub (or Drudrub) (52), Chogden Tsultrim (19), and Sonam Gyalpo “have expressed fear since there [has] been no news about their location or well-being,” according to the Tibetan source. The report did not provide a date of detention for the detainees, some of whom may be monks based on their names. Most of the 2008 political detentions in the TAR recorded in the CECC Political Prisoner Database took place during March through May. Information is not available about the six Tibetans’ place of detention or criminal charges, if any, against them.

Authorities detained an unknown number of Tashikhyil monks during following weeks.

According to RFA information, authorities in Xinjiang detained 12 Uyghur men from Ghulja (Yining) and Nelka (Nileke) counties and Ghulja (Yining) city, Ili (Yili) Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture, between March-June, 2008. The detentions were connected to their activities teaching religion to children, according to the father of one of the men. The Ili Intermediate People's Court sentenced them to prison terms from 3 years to life for “splitting the state,” a crime under article 103 of the Criminal Law. The men are Merdan Seyitakhun (sentenced to life imprisonment), Ahmetjan Emet (15 years), Seydehmet Awut (10 years), Erkin Emet (10 years), Abdujilil Abdughupur (6 years), Abdulitip Ablimit (6 years) (all last known to be held at the Ghulja PSB detention center), Mewlanjan Ahmet (10 years), Kurbanjan Semet (10 years), Dolkun Erkin (10 years), Omerjan Memet (10 years), Mutelip Rozi (6 years), and Ubulkasim (3 years) (all last known to be held at the Ili PSB detention center).
