Uyghur doctoral student arrested from Chinese University

China is not stopping its atrocities on Uyghur people. China has arrested a doctoral student who is a student in Xinjiang region and has earned academic achievements.

Abduqadirjan Rozi, a 35-year-old graduate management student at Sun Yat-sen University, won the 2015 National College Student English Competition in China and in 2018 was named the university’s student of the year and the ‘Model Person of the Powerful New Generation’, Radio Free Asia reported.

He holds an advanced certificate in English from Cambridge International Business English and served as a judge for the Xinjiang division of the annual “21st Century Coca-Cola Cup” National English-Speaking competition, the news portal reported.

He, however,  disappeared from social media and then from his community in April.

A source told RFA that he made inquiries and learned that Abduqadirjan had been detained by police at Sun Yat-sen University and taken back to Urumqi, capital of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR).

“I got the news of his arrest in late April,” he told RFA. “I inquired about his situation later from different people and got the final news that he had, in fact, been arrested in April by national security from Urumqi.”

When RFA contacted the university’s governing body at Guangdong province’s Department of Education, an official said she had no information about the incident.
