WASHINGTON – The Canadian Government has recognised the crackdown on China’s Uyghur population in Xinjiang as constituting a ‘genocide’. The Canadian Parliamentary Subcommittee on International Human Rights (SDIR), which held hearings in 2018 and in July 2020, stated: “Based on the evidence put forward during the Subcommittee hearings, both in 2018 and 2020, the Subcommittee is persuaded that the actions of the Chinese Communist Party constitute genocide as laid out in the Genocide Convention.”
The Uyghur Human Rights Project (UHRP) has welcomed the government’s findings. There are now calls by the SDIR to impose sanctions on all Chinese government officials responsible for grave human rights abuses against Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims. Similar steps have already been taken by the USA.
