Câmara dos Representantes condena a China por repressão
December 4, 2019 -
A Câmara dos Representantes dos EUA aprovou por larga maioria uma
moção contra a repressão da China sobre as minorias muçulmanas
da região de Xinjiang no extremo ocidental do país.
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.
