UN veröffentlicht Bericht über Menschenrechtsverletzung in China
September 1, 2022 -
Die Vereinten Nationen verurteilen China für schwere Menschenrechtsverletzungen in der Xinjang Provinz, mit Folter und anderen Formen grausamer, inhumaner oder herabwürdigender Behandlung von ethnischen Uyghuren.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet says China has committed serious human rights abuses, against Muslim minorities living in Xinjiang, that may constitute crimes against humanity.
Bachelet’s accusations include detention of Uyghurs and other Muslims, together with a general campaign of rights violations including forced birth control and the demolition of holy sites, such as the Imam Asim Shrine.
William Nee, the research and advocacy coordinator at Chinese Human Rights Defenders, said the report “gives credence to the widespread deprivation of liberty in re-education centres, the torture and sexual violence found there, the likelihood of forced labor, the assault on religious and cultural rights”.
Unsurprisingly, Beijing dismisses the allegations as the “lie of the century”, adding that Bachelet “wantonly smears and slanders China”.
