New camps are established around factories (for forced labor) but also around hospitals, where suspicious activities take place, perhaps connected with organ harvesting
by Laila Adilzhan
Where a medical center, a hospital, a factory once stood, there is now in Xinjiang’s Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture a concentration camp. Not that factories or medical facilities have disappeared. They have monstrously metastasized into so-called transformation through education camps that include inside of them either a factory or a medical center.
In the case of factories, inmates can be subjected there to slave labor without even have the inconvenience of transporting them. What happens inside the hospitals and medical centers is more mysterious. The medical facilities are surrounded by barbed wire, high fences, and high control towers, and no one is allowed to come near them, unless they are camp personnel (and not even all of them). Surveillance is carried out through cameras and guards at the same time. The windows are sealed with wooden planks or iron plates, so that no one can see what is happening inside, and people inside also cannot see outside. The bodies of those who die there are swiftly cremated. This raises the suspicion that was is really going there is organ harvesting, as many rumors would indicate.
There are also hospitals or parts thereof outside the camps that have been converted to “prison hospitals,” and severely guarded. This is the case of the 13th floor of the People’s Hospital of Dorbiljin (Ch. Emin or Emei) county in Xinjiang’s Tacheng (in Kazakh, Tarbagatay) Prefecture, and of the first floor of Nilek County People’s Hospital.
Through the work of the unregistered Real Atajurt Advocacy Group, founded in Kazakhstan by Serikzhan Bilash, we were able to compile a list of camps where ethnic Kazakh are detained in Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture. It was a long work, particularly because in recent months the CCP has been sending to Kazakhstan fake refugees, who contact the NGOs with fake information, hoping they will be published, and the NGOs will be discredited. Our list is based on hundreds of interviews, and months of checks and verification.
Here the list we were able to establish:
1) Detention camps in Yining (that Kazakhs call Kulja City)
1.1. Flax Factory (changed into a camp including the factory)
1.2. Yining Power Plant (changed into a camp including the plant)
1.3. Yili Prefecture Finance and Trade School (changed into a camp)
1.5. Transformation through education center of Yining Huaguoshan Detention Center
1.6. Yili Prefecture Xinhua Hospital (changed into camp including the hospital)
1.7. The Third Branch of Yili Prefecture Friendship Hospital (changed into camp including the hospital)
1.8. The Second Branch of Yili Prefecture Friendship Hospital (changed into camp including the hospital)
1.9. Ili State Mental Hospital (Xinlu Street, Yining City) (changed into a women-only camp including the hospital)
1.10. Kazanshi Handicraft Base Training Center (changed into a camp and forced labor center)
1.11. Dairy Farm (Nan’an New Area) Training Center (changed into a camp including the farm)
1.12. Huancheng North Road Sichuan Xincun Special Police Brigade Reception Training Center (transformation through education center)
1.13. Training Base of Xinhua Chemical Plant, Beishanpo, Yingyeer Township, Yining

4) The Blood Center of Altay city, Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture, has been incorporated into a transformation through education camp (Radio Free Asia reported about it in October 2018, based on information supplied by us).
6) The first floor of Nilek County People’s Hospital became a prison hospital. No one is allowed in unless it is a guard.
