Victim's relation to testifier

The victim is the father of childhood friends of someone I know.

Imam Rozi (依马木·肉孜) helped run a traditional crafts workshop that employed about ten people and exported its products to countries in Central Asia. He also owned a tannery ("tire zawuti").

Believed to be in the "Boz" camp in Ghulja.

When victim was detained

September 2018. On July 21, 2019, his relatives told me that he was set to be tried and given a prison sentence in the coming days. On October 2, 2019, I was told by a childhood friend of his sons that he was soon to be sentenced to 9 years.

Probable (or official) reason for detention

Victim's status

In concentration camp, but awaiting sentencing, so current status unclear.

Someone managed to get his ID photo and explained his situation to an acquaintance of mine, who then asked me to publicize his case.
