How did the testifier learn about the victim's status?
First-person testimony from the victim's mother, Kurmangul. According to Kurmangul, The Chinese authorities had set up centers at two hotels in Urumqi—the Global Hotel and the Changcheng Hotel—for people to report missing people following the riots. She said during her visits to the centers, she had never come across Han Chinese looking for missing parents or siblings. The establishment of the centers shows that there could be a large number of people who went missing during the police crackdown.
