The court overseeing the case has not released details to the public. Mr. Yimiti’s wife and two sons have continued to struggle with hardships and daily living expenses.
CAA has also learned that Uyghur Christian, Wusiman Yiming, who was sentenced to 2 years reeducation through labor by a Xinjiang court, was afforded a rare opportunity to meet his wife.    According to Mr. Yimiti’s wife, Wusiman had aged rapidly since his incarceration and continues to suffer poor health due to the labor camp’s harsh conditions.
Bob Fu, President of China Aid Association, strongly denounces the Chinese authorities in Kashi, Xinjiang for their persecution of these Uyghur Christians. Authorities have targeted Christians in Xinjiang because of their beliefs. Mr. Fu calls on the Chinese authorities to immediately release these two innocent citizens.
