Amerikaanse Huis veroordeelt Chinese onderdrukking etnische moslims

December 4, 2019 - Het Amerikaanse Huis van Afgevaardigden heeft met overweldigende
meerderheid een wet aangenomen tegen de Chinese onderdrukking van
etnische moslimminderheden in de westelijke regio Xinjiang.

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.
