In 2016, an Australian woman named Mehray Mezensof went to Xinjiang, China for the first time. He fell in love with a Uygar youth named Mirzat Taher. After some time both of them got married. Mezensoff was born in Australia. Her parents moved to Australia 35 years ago. So she was a permanent resident of Australia. Taher also to gain citizenship of Australia after marrying her Was eligible.
According to ABC News report The two got married in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang, and a short time later, on 1 April 2017, the young man was granted a visa to visit Australia. This was also the time when the Chinese administration began its atrocities on the Uygar Muslims.
On 12 April 2017, the couple booked their flight to Melbourne. But before he left for Australia, on 10 April 2017, the police came to his house. The police asked Taher if he had traveled abroad. Since Taher had come to Turkey for a year, the police immediately took him into custody and took him along for questioning.
Taher sent to Detention Camp
After interrogation, Taher was sent to the Detention Camp. He was released on 22 May 2019 after spending 10 months there. A few weeks later he met his wife at Urukmi Airport. Taher told that he was brainwashed at the concentration camp. He was taught about the Communist Party of China and recalled many of his speeches. Not only that, when he was released, he was under strict supervision.
Mezensoff’s visa was expiring and the Chinese administration was not ready to give Taher’s passport. Mezzanoff’s application to extend his visa was also canceled and he had to return to Australia without a husband.
Mezzanoff knocked Corona back in Australia when he was back in Australia. As a result, she could not return again. But the husband and wife kept talking to each other. On May 19, 2020, Taher suddenly stopped replying to his wife’s messages. During interrogation, it was found that the police had picked up her husband again and sent him to the camp.
Not long ago, when Taher was given a permanent resident’s proof by Australia, it was discovered that the Chinese administration had recaptured it a few weeks earlier. On 23 October 2020, Hami police arrested Taher on charges of having links with terrorist organizations.
Taher was sentenced to 25 years by the Chinese administration
In January of 2021, Taher’s case was heard by Hami’s court and 2 weeks ago he was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Mezensoff says that her husband was sent to prison because he returned to Turkey after living for a year. He is being accused of separatism by the police there. At the same time, she is also saying that she was involved in such political activities whose purpose was to create a separate country.
The woman refutes all the allegations against her husband, saying that her husband had just gone to Turkey on holiday, but she liked things there and stayed a year and worked there. According to the woman, the Chinese court has neither given her nor any family member of Taher any documents related to the sentence.
According to ABC, he tried to talk to the Chinese authorities as soon as the matter came to cognizance, but the authorities did not respond. At the same time, Taher’s case is not mentioned on China’s Judicial Process Information website, while in 2017 the Turkish administration stated that Taher has no criminal record.
Let us know that China has a list of 26 such sensitive countries which are always on their radar. Turkey is one of these countries. Now 30-year-old Taher is imprisoned in China for a sentence of 25 years while in Australia his 26-year-old wife is looking forward to him.
