According to the family, the woman was held in a Chinese detention camp in Xinjiang for more than a year while her kids were sent to live with relatives.
She was later released but she has been afraid to go back home. It was gathered that the woman now stays with her parents in China working in a forced labor facility unable to see or contact her family. She has not gone home out of fear of being sent back to a detention camp.
