Uyghur woman Buzainafu Abudourexiti has been sentenced to seven years in prison in a secret trial, and is unable to talk to her family, including her Australian husband.

Chinese police took Buzainafu from her parents’ home in Xinjiang, China in March 2017. She was sentenced to seven years in prison in June 2017 on charges of ‘assembling a crowd to disturb social order.’ 

At the time of her arrest, Buzainafu was about to join her husband Almas in Australia, where they could begin their lives together. Almas has not heard from Buzainafu since the police took her from her parents’ home.

Amnesty International has spoken with dozens of people who were detained in prisons and so-called ‘re-education camps’ in Xinjiang, all of whom were tortured. 

Buzainafu remains at risk of torture as long as she is in prison. 

Almas won’t give up until Buzainafu is released, but he needs your support to show the Chinese authorities that thousands of people stand with him. Call on the Chinese authorities to release Buzainafu immediately.
