  • (guardian)US imposes sanctions on senior Chinese officials over Uighur abuses Xinjiang The Guardian. ; The United States has imposed sanctions on three senior officials of the Chinese Communist party, including a member of the ruling politburo, for alleged human rights abuses targeting ethnic and religious minorities in the western part of the country.
    Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said in a statement: The United States will not stand idly by as the Chinese Communist party carries out human rights abuses targeting Uighurs, ethnic Kazakhs and members of other minority groups in Xinjiang, to include forced labor, arbitrary mass detention, and forced population control, and attempts to erase their culture and Muslim faith.
    Pompeo's statement, accompanied by a similar announcement from the Treasury department, said additional visa restrictions were being placed on other party officials believed to be responsible for, or complicit in, the detentions.
    The decision to bar the three senior officials from entering the US is the latest in a series of actions the Trump administration has taken against China as relations deteriorate over the coronavirus pandemic, human rights, Hong Kong and trade.

  • Some Uighurs and Kazakhs have told the AP their relatives have been released, but many others say their loved ones remain in detention, were sentenced to prison or transferred to forced labor in factories.
    In October 2019, the United States imposed visa restrictions on Chinese officials believed to be responsible for, or complicit in the detention of Muslims in Xinjiang
  • It also blacklisted more than two dozen Chinese companies and agencies linked to abuses in the region including surveillance technology manufacturers and Xinjiang's public security bureau in effect blocking them from buying US products.
    Last month, Trump signed legislation, passed with overwhelming support from Congress, mandating that individuals, including Chen, face sanctions for oppressing Uighurs
