To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, whether the Government plans to publish a response to the judgement of the Uyghur Tribunal published on 9 December 2021.
25 January 2022
We welcome the contribution the Uyghur Tribunal has made to building international awareness and understanding of the human rights violations in Xinjiang. The findings add to our serious and well-known concerns about the severity of the human rights violations being perpetrated against Uyghur Muslims and other ethnic minorities in Xinjiang. Ministers and officials have met Sir Geoffrey Nice on several occasions over the past year to discuss the tribunal's work. Whilst we do not plan to publish a response to the findings, we will continue to take robust action to hold China to account for its human rights violations in the region, working alongside our international partners.
