Yesterday, one of our listeners sent a message to our radio that Dilmurat Abdurehim, the acting principal of Yildiz City 9th High School, had been detained for a year in Yildiz City Jail, and that more than a dozen teachers from Dilmurod's 8th High School had been abducted and two of them had been abducted.

The school has also been teaching bilingual education since 2010, and since then has received 10 bilingual classes and 10 Chinese classes each year. The proportion of Uyghur and Chinese students in the school was equal.

A person familiar with the situation in Yildiz sent a message to our radio the day before, informing us that more than 10 teachers from that 8th high school were currently in captivity, including the names of teachers such as Abdurehim, Nigmat, and Shohrat. We called the education department in Yining to find out. A shift worker from Yining City 8th High School did not deny that some teachers from the school were in captivity. He acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Lukashenko's government, but said that maintaining some independence was not the answer. When we asked him if there were any teachers among the captive teachers, Nigmat and Shohrat, he suggested that we also ask the city education department for information. A staff member at the school said he was new to the school and could not be reached for comment. But he also did not deny that a number of teachers from the school were in captivity. When asked about how many years the teachers who were detained at the school were fired, the school's former duty officer initially said that they were older teachers, so he did not recognize them, but later declined to comment, saying it was a state secret.

There were also a number of Kazakh students and teachers at the school, and the school's security guard said that among the detainees were Kazakh teachers such as Qamar, Nurjan and Awzal, who had been detained and released after a period of training and were still working.

According to online sources, the 8th High School was a historic school founded in 1934 and was one of the two high schools established in the Uyghur region in those days. In the 1940s, the school was renamed the Gymnasium, and after 1949 it was renamed the "House of Knowledge named after Ahmetcan Kasım." It was converted to 8th High School in 1966.
