Summary
As relayed by Mayila's cousin Nyrola Elima, now living in Sweden. Mayila triggered red flags when she began transferring money to Australia, where other family of hers lived. "First, the 41-year-old insurance company worker was taken away for 10 months of 'vocational training' in one of the internment camps China has set up in the mostly-Muslim Xinjiang region as part of an extensive campaign to strip the Uighur minority of its culture and language. She was out for barely four months before the authorities picked her up again — this time for financing terrorism. Now, the single mother of three is in a prison for criminals, serving a sentence of unknown length."
