Uyghur Tribunal reaches unanimous “guilty” verdict



(ChinaAid, Midland, TX—December 13, 2021) The Uyghur
Tribunal found the Chinese government guilty of crimes against humanity,
systematic torture, and genocide against Uyghurs and other minorities in the Xinjiang
region. Their decision is not legally binding, but it sets the stage for international
communities to take action.

 

The Tribunal met twice in 2021, once in June and again in
September, to gather evidence and witness testimonies for Uyghur concentration
camps. An estimate of millions suffered forced labor, sterilization, torture,
and sexual abuse at the hands of Chinese officials.

 

Being a quasi-judicial body, the tribunal cannot hold the Chinese
Communist Party (CCP) accountable. Instead, the verdict provides an avenue for other
free countries to take action. Some of these actions have already taken place
with US House of Representatives passing the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act
last week.

 

Bob Fu, founder and president of ChinaAid, commented
on the monumental nature of this decision:

 

The unanimous judgment by the independent Tribunal after
nearly two years of extensive hearings from a number of credible witnesses and
experts that the Chinese Communist government had verifiably committed
systematic genocide and crime against humanity against ethnic minorities such
as Uyghurs and Kazakhs inside Xinjiang is another vindication of the same
finding by the international community. It further proves the brutality of the
worst human rights violations in the modern history of China in the past 70 years.
It’s imperative both morally and legally for all of the free countries,
especially the US and EU and international organizations such as the UN, to
take immediate and urgent actions to stop these atrocities from happening
before it gets worse.
