A desperate Uyghur mother in Turkey is looking for his son Abduweli Jappar, a Hotan-born Uyghur who came to Turkey on September 1, 2015, but disappeared 14 days later. Jappar appears to be one of the 397 Uyghurs detained and deported to China, Abduweli Ayup writes in a recent tweet. He says he personally knows at least three other Uyghurs that have disappeared in Turkey. Jappar would be the 4th. 


Jappar was born in Hotan in 1993. He had downloaded a ‘marked’ app on his mobile phone that landed him in a Chinese concentration camp on June 3, 2015.


Jappar’s file appears on Xinjiang Victims Database (entry # 10265)

The details of his disappearance appeared on the Karakash List. He was sentenced to 5.5 years for “disturbing social order” by “illegally listening to Tabligh”, an application teaching Islam.
