Uyghurs tribunal finds China committed genocide against people and other minority groups


  • The Uyghur Tribunal cited birth control and sterilization measures allegedly carried out by China against the Uyghurs.
  • Sir Geoffrey Nice, a prominent British barrister who chaired the tribunal hearings said, its panel was satisfied that China had carried out a deliberate, systematic, and concerted policy to bring about a long-term reduction of Uyghur and other ethnic minority populations. 
  • He added that the panel believed senior officials including the Chinese President Xi Jinping bore primary responsibility for the abuses against Muslim minorities in the Xinjiang region.
