Dear Director Fan Jun,

I call on you to ensure that Ilham Tohti is not tortured or ill-treated in detention. A university professor, Ilham Tohti worked tirelessly to build bridges between ethnic communities in China.

He always opposed violence in his writing and lectures, and sought to encourage co-operation and understanding. But he’s been jailed for life for so-called “separatism”.

Ilham Tohti is being cruelly punished for his peaceful activism It is unjust. He should be immediately and unconditionally released.

Yours sincerely,
