The authorities deceived more than 40 Muslim men from an ethnic Hui village and detained them at a “transformation through education camp.”
In April 2018, Ma Minghui (pseudonym) from a village in Usu city, Xinjiang, received a notification from authorities to attend “study classes” at the local commune. When he arrived there, Mr. Ma was forcibly taken to a “transformation through education camp.”
At the beginning of his detention, Ma Minghui was only allowed to have video calls with his family, and each conversation was limited to three minutes. Since May, Mr. Ma’s family has lost all contact with him.
According to local sources, more than 40 Muslim men from the same village have been similarly tricked and later detained in the “transformation through education camp” in Usu. Ma Minghui’s son is also among them.
