GENEVA, Switzerland. The United Nations submitted a report yesterday stating that China’s actions in the Xinjiang region against the Uyghurs and other Muslim groups “may constitute international crimes, in particular crimes against humanity.”
The 46-page document outlined actions taken by the Chinese authorities that led to “large-scale arbitrary deprivation of liberty” for a “significant portion” of Uyghurs and other minorities who live in the region.
The report alleges that women were subjected to “sexual and gender-based violence.” “Patterns of torture or other forms of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment” were document in the report as well.
Similar reports have been written by several Western governments with the same findings as the current U.N. report. China condemned the report saying it was, “purely a farce plotted by some Western countries and anti-China forces.”
