US Repräsentantenhaus verurteilt China wegen Unterdrückung ethnischer Minderheiten

December 4, 2019 - Das US Repräsentantenhaus hat überwiegend ein Gesetz gegen Chinas Massenunterdrückung von ethnischen Muslim-Minderheiten in der westlichen Xinjiang Region von China bewilligt.

China protested the U.S. bill early Wednesday.

The legislation condemns the detention of more than one million Uighurs, Kazakhs and other minorities in so-called re-education camps, where they are subjected to political indoctrination, torture, beatings, and food deprivation, as well as denial of religious and linguistic freedom.

It would require the State Department to evaluate whether Chinese officials would meet the criteria for sanctions for their roles in the crackdown in the Xinjiang region.
