PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA
I am writing you to express my concern about the continued imprisonment of respected Uighur economics professor
The Uighur economics professor Ilham Tohti is well known for his moderate views on ethnic issues in China. He was given a life sentence for “separatism” in September 2014, solely for the peaceful expression of his opinions.
Therefore, I respectfully call on you to ensure the immediate and unconditional release of Ilham Tohti. In addition, and pending his release, I hope that you will respond favourably to the request that Ilham Tohti be moved to a prison closer to his family in Beijing. He is currently detained at Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region No. 1 Prison.
Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.
I am kindly awaiting your reply.
Yours sincerely and respectfully,
