China: Arrest of suspect's children

Michael D. Manning at The Opposite End of China blogs on a development in the case of Rebiya Kadeer, an Uyghur businesswoman accused by Chinese authorities of supporting the separatist movement in western China's Xinjiang Autonomous Region.

“Three of Kadeer's children still living in Xinjiang have been arrested,” blogs Manning, “reportedly for owing more than 29 million RMB in unpaid taxes. Kadeer's son, Alim, appears to have suffered injuries while being taken into custody due to his ‘rude and unreasonable attitude.'”
