US, US Chamber passes law to punish China for repression of Uighurs

by admin

The US House of Congress approved by a very large majority a bipartisan bill that lays the foundations for being able to punish China for the treatment reserved for the Muslim minority of Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region. A similar text had already been approved by the Senate.

The provision speaks of a “brutal campaign of repression with mass incarceration, torture and forced labor” and authorizes the State Department to create a ‘black list’ of entities that collaborate with the Chinese government in the repression of ethnic and religious minorities.

Last week a series of secret documents published online secret documents revealed that plans for a harsh crackdown on Uyghurs in China would be linked to the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party leadership. The material, including 3 speeches by Xi Jinping from 2014, was leaked to the Uyghur Tribunal, a UK-based independent people’s court.

China, new “leaks” show that the squeeze on the Uighurs was planned by the leaders of the CCP

In the documents, some of them classified as top secret, “the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party leadership are calling for demographic control, re-education and relocation of Uyghurs to correct a population imbalance in Xinjiang.” However, the Chinese regime has repeatedly denied all allegations of human rights violations in Xinjiang and claims its camps are educational centers designed to combat separatism and stop Islamist terrorism in the region.
