Amnesty International remains seriously concerned for the safety of Hemit Memet, Kasim Mahpir and Ilyas Zordun who were reportedly moved from a prison in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR) in May 1999 to the Public security (police) detention centre in the city of Gulja (Yining) where they are detained incommunicado. They are at serious risk of being tortured in detention and may face the death penalty.
